Visited Turnberry for the Ladies Open on Thursday and stayed overnight at Cosses Country House, Ballantrae. The House is 2 miles from the sea in a hidden valley and the location is so peaceful. Our hosts, Susan and Robin, were very welcoming and we were introduced to their two labs, Monty and Oscar. Dinner was served in the main dining... More

Stayed last night, had afternoon tea on arrival, then dinner. A wonderfully peaceful location, a very warm welcome, comfortable accommodation. We stayed in the Iona suite which is actually a two-roomed cottage. Our hosts were warm, welcoming, attentive without smothering us and the cat and dogs were an added bonus! Plus the ducklings! The food was all freshly cooked, using... More

What a lovely place to stay. Our every need was catered for and our expectations were surpassed. Lovely accommodation, peaceful, restful, and glorious sleep possible with a very comfy bed and the BEST pillows. The food was wonderful, both dinner and breakfast .We could feel ourselves being totally restored with goodness and wellness which Cosses exudes. Many thanks to Susan,... More

Beautifully located, fantastic dinners and breakfasts, lovely hosts, nothing short of the most wonderful place to be when in Scotland. Worth a detour if you want to stay near the SW coast. It is great for hiking, good food and lots to see in the area. The B&B is far from any noise so peace and quiet are assured.

Accommodation and food was excellent, hosted by Susan and Robin, who made our stay very special - a big thanks to both of you. Highly recommended for a special occasion or short break. Plenty of things to do including castles and floral gardens. Meals are prepared and cooked by Susan using fresh produce taken from the garden and meat/fish sourced... More

This was our first stay at Cosses Country House. We stayed for one night thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are traditionally decorated in keeping with the stunning character of the house, and we're spotlessly clean. The owners have tried to think of everything that you could possibly need even down to electric blankets for those chillier nights. We occupied both... More

We stayed at Cosses which allowed us to attend a friend's 80th birthday close-by. We were happy to be accommodated for an early arrival so we didn't get to sample the afternoon tea. Initially, we were well-impressed with Cosses Country House. Beautiful layout and in a lovely setting. Our suite (Ailsa) was spacious, well equipped and clean. Our only small... More

Susan C, Owner at Cosses Country House, responded to this review

First of all I would like to apologise to this couple that they found their stay at Cosses Country House anything but enjoyable. I would like to respond to each point: A special request was made by the couple for a very early arrival in order to change before attending their friend's birthday lunch at Glenapp Castle. I offered to... More

I have stayed at Cosses Country House on a few occassions, the last time was May. Susan and Robin always make you feel so welcome and the food is excellent. The house and rooms are decorated tastefully and the location is beautiful. I always reccomend this Wolsley Lodge to all my friends and family.

We have stayed several times at Cosses and never disappointed. The location is is hidden away amongst the hills outside Ballantrae but located near so many activities from fishing to golf ( thats me catered for ) country and sea walks and of course all the historic points of interest. Remember how close it is to some serious international golf... More
