“Simply Superb!”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a large. luxurious and very comfortable house which is furnished with exquisite taste. Plenty of parking space for multiple vehicles; lovely garden to sit in if the weather is warm. Lovely location in rolling countryside and the house is situated on a minor road with little traffic. Extensive kitchen if you wish to prepare meals in house and there is a very good restaurant in the Hollybush Inn about 5 minutes walk away or a minute or so in the car. Ayr centre is only 10 mnutes drive away, Troon about 25 mins.

The owner could not have been more helpful to ensure our stay was was a good as it could be and all our expectations were surpassed.

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Booked the White House for a 2 night stay for a party of 11, for a wedding at Brig a Doon. Ideal location with it over looking fields and being about 15 mins from Ayr. Met on arrival by Margaret who showed us round the stunning house. From top to bottom, the house is remarkable and decor is amazing! Margaret couldn't do enough for us... She supplied a wonderful surprise for us all (an edible one!), organised a hairdresser and made sure that the fridge and kitchen were better stocked than our fridge!
The bedrooms, like the rest of the house, are immaculate and contain everything you could want... The extra little little touches really make it feel like a home rather than a holiday let.
Couldn't recommend this place any more and we will certainly be back :)

“Perfect house for a birthday celebration”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were a party of 12 who stayed overnight in this beautiful house. Our get together was an 18th birthday celebration for my niece. On arrival in Hollybush we were a bit early so we went to the lovely Hollybush Inn pub/restaurant which is just 5 minutes away from the house for lunch. It was very good, I would recommend. We then we went to the White House. On arrival, Margaret the owner met us and gave us all a tour. The house is stunning, decor is beautiful in every room and there is everything you could possibly need. The extra touches were really thoughtful, Margaret baked a cake for the birthday girl and had drinks waiting on us and even breakfast for the next day! It really was perfect and can't recommend highly enough. We will definitely return as soon as possible.

“Amazing house!”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My family and I stayed here whilst we were in Scotland for my wedding and had such a great time. The house itself is beautiful, spacious and decorated to a very high standard. Margaret is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. She made our time there even more special!!

We stayed for a couple of nights to celebrate our mums 60 the birthday. We all had a fantastic time and my mum enjoyed her stay so much, we are sure to be back again. The house is huge and spacious with lovely decor throughout and has everything you need. Margaret made our welcome extra special with all her wee extra treats that were greatly appreciated. Thank you .

We booked The White House with family and friends to celebrate my 30th birthday and what a fantastic birthday I had. Margaret the owner is delightful and extremely welcoming. The house had been decorated with banners and balloons. Not only was the house decorated Margaret also made a lovely pavlova in the shape of 30 complete with candles(my brothers and hubby are chefs and they loved the pavlova Margaret made), Lovely bottle of Prosecco was waiting for us in ice bucket., she even got my a present and a bunch of beatiful roses were waiting for me in my bedroom. In the fridge in the kitchen Margaret providet us with breakfast for next day.
The house is stunning with everything provided. The attention to detail is first class. The rooms are large, bright and tastefully decorated with lots of seating areas. The beds and bedding are of very high quality.The house is amazing the photos on the website don't do it justice. It is spotlessly clean,Its simply the best:)Thank You for all hospitality and your kindness.We will be back.xxx
