My sisters, cousin, and I stayed at Merlin House at the start of June and we had the most fantastic time. Lesley was incredibly helpful and thoughtful-- picking us up at the ferry terminal even though we were hours late, providing advice and lifts, and generally just being the most friendly and attentive host we've ever experienced. She and her husband even took us out to their local pub on our first evening to join their pub quiz. The house is great and equipped with everything you need for self-catering (although the climb up the long drive in not for the faint of heart). We never figured out how to work the shower so that it wasn't too hot--but we put that down to not understanding British taps and were too embarrassed to ask what we were doing wrong-- so we advise that you ask Lesley upon arrival and don't muddle through on your own. You can catch the bus at the bottom of the drive and be on your way to exploring the island. We would return in a heartbeat. Thank you again Lesley for a lovely stay in your home!

We had a great few days on Arran and there was loads to see and do, especially with a 2 year old. Merlin house was a great location and with amazing views. This suited our needs, it was very clean and the owners were very helpful and were there to meet us when we arrived. Shame we had to leave a day early because of the ferry strike!
Lesley and her family made us welcome. Always available for local knowledge.
Very clean and tidy house which was well equipped for our needs.
Good location for peace and quiet but also not far into Brodick Town centre.
Hill walks close by too, overall well worth a visit if you need to get away for a relaxing break.
Stayed over a long weekend and had a relaxing time. House provides everything you need and the view being the best part. Easy access to all of arran from house and Lesley very friendly and accommodating. All 4 adults had a great time and would return again.
Great stay at merlin house. Lesley and her family very niece people ,also good and patient with the kids. Accommodation perfect for a base to explore arran also safe and secure for the kids as it sits up on a hill. Chickens roam free so my kids were very entertained by them. Everything you need within accommodation, Lesley supplies cleaning products and coffee ,tea sugar ect. Excellent value for money. Hope to return in the summer .
We stayed here for 4 nights with our infant son. The house was exactly what we were looking for. It has a great view, is very quiet while still close to the ferry terminal and has everything you need for a self-catered stay in Arran. The owner is very friendly and helpful. A car is highly recommended though as the house is on top of a pretty long and steep hill.
Leslie and Dennis where fabulous hosts. Having their keen local insight really added to our memorable holiday. They welcomed us to their property and we were made to feel at home. The view is great and the property is well located in between Brodick and Corrie. We had no problems with using bikes to get around. We would highly recommend this property for your holiday as it is so close to the beach just down the drive.
