We just recently stayed at the White House on the 20th - 22nd of feb 2015 for my dads 70th birthday. There were 11 adults, 2 children and one infant. It was quite genuinely one of the best weekends we have ever had. Just like many others have said Margaret's welcome was so warm and caring you thought you'd known her for years. The house was spectacular with each room just as good as the next. Within a few hours of being there we felt like we were at home - undoubtedly due to the kindness and welcome from Margaret. She goes above and beyond for her guests, putting up party banners and balloons, setting a beautiful table, providing beer and champagne, giving us breakfast that would feed a small army, baking the most beautiful pavlova and chocs in each room...! She even gave my dad a present for his birthday - Truly amazing! We can't thank you enough Margaret and we can't wait to get back. We had such a special time for dads birthday and made great memories that we can cherish. If anyone is thinking of booking this house then do it, you will not regret it! Margaret, Thank you so much again, we will definitely be back!
First visit to this house......it will certainly not be the last.....this is most probably the best self catering house I have ever stayed in. The comfort, ambience decor and exquisite attention to detail makes this one very special house. Well done to Margaret the owner.
Great walks on your doorstep, the hollybush inn but you really don't want to go out, the house is just so comfortable and welcoming.
Love it, love it, love it.

From the minute I spoke to Margaret I knew it was going to be a special experience for my mums 60th birthday.
The house itself is absolutely stunning and immaculate. Margaret has decorated with style and care, every detail considered, from the robes and slippers to the hairdryers, toiletries and chocolates in each room. The house is luxurious but homely and there is a variety of living rooms to choose from, which we used for different purposes, from karaoke in the living/dining room to cocktails in the library and present opening in the fabulous central living space. The kitchen is gorgeous and fully stocked. The welcome from Margaret was so warm, we felt like old friends rather than paying guests.
The setting could not be more perfect, a short hop to Ayr, beautiful walks on the doorstep, a lovely pub/restaurant 10 mins walk away, and stunning views.
I will be recommending the house to everyone for all ages and all occasions.
Thank you so much Margaret, We really didn't want to leave and I'm looking forward to finding an excuse to visit again soon.
Thanks again for everything!!
We visited with family to celebrate an 80th birthday. The owner Margaret met us on arrival and could not have been any nicer. She had decorated the house with 80th banners and balloons. Made an 80th pavlova and had placed roses in the birthday girl's room. There was beer / cava on ice and the ingredients for a full Scottish breakfast in the fridge. The house itself is beautiful. Luxury all the way. Decorated to the highest standard and spotlessly clean. The house is very handy for all the sights of Ayrshire. If you only book one self catering house this year, I would advise this one. We hope to go back soon. Thanks Margaret.

We have stayed at The White House on several occasions now and the service just gets better. Going again in a couple of weeks and cannot wait. Perfect for gatherings of family or friends and Margaret could not be more helpful if she tried. Truly a wonderful place to stay.
Would rate this as 5 star. We spent New Year 2014/15 at the house. We were 3 families of varying ages staying at the house and all thought the house was great. There was plenty of space for the adults to relax and the kids to do their own thing and also for all 12 of us to eat together and play games. The beds were very comfortable and plenty supplies of towels, linen etc. Margaret was extremely helpful (even to the point of buying a new food processor before we arrived). She had also left us some wine and beer and little packs of goodies for the children individually. Would definitely recommend the house.
Just back the house is out of this. World like to have stayed longer,my whole family 14 of us raved about it and Margaret the owner could not do enough with some nice touches we will be going back as soon as possiblle
