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

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.

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

We felt really at home here. Cosses Country House is tucked away out of sight of the road and right from the start we were able to relax in the beautiful garden. Our accommodation consisted of 3 rooms - living room, bedroom and really spacious bathroom. Although we hadn't experienced Wolsey Lodges style hospitality before (sharing all meals with other...
