This home fulfilled our needs well. It has a great location to amenities in Largs and to waterfront and play park for my kids.
Would definitely stay here again and the owner Kathy is great to deal with and responsive to needs.
It is clean and has all you need for cooking at home. Beds are super comfy too.

“ANOTHER Fantastic break in Largs, must be our 4th visit!!”
Reviewed September 26, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Many thanks Cathy for the use of Blythswood, we'll be back next year, or the kids will riot!!!!

This is our wee home from home, our Largs retreat.

The weather this time was poor, but with our wet weather plan in place it didn't deter us.

This year, instead of Heads of Ayr, we went to Greenock to the Cinema, Swimming at Vikingar, and also Vikingar and the Barrafield Theatre to see the McDougall's History Mystery show, which was fantastic.

Batteries now recharged, and I'll be in touch soon for next year.

Thanks again.

Xx

“Lovely holiday home”

I stayed for a week with my partner and our two young children. The location is good. Very central in Largs, just a ten minute stroll into the centre, the nicest route being along the seafront. Also, only ten minutes walk to Pencil beach, so great for our kids.

The property has on-street parking. This can be a problem in some areas, but not here – there were always spaces available and we managed to park right outside.

All rooms are spacious and well-equipped. The house is much bigger than it looks from outside. The living room has two sofas (one of which is a sofa bed), there is freeview TV and freesat, as well as a DVD player and free wifi. The kitchen has everything you need and has some basic provisions provided. There is also a dining table for 6. The washing machine is very handy when you have a young family and there is a tumble drier in the garden shed. The back garden is probably the main weakness of the property because it is just a yard, so not ideal for the kids to play in, but we were out much of the time anyway.

The bedrooms were great. The main bedroom is very spacious. It has an absolutely massive and really comfortable bed – we wanted to take it home with us!! The only improvement I can suggest is better blinds/curtains, as the blinds currently in place are not the best for privacy. The back bedroom has bunk beds and our eldest loved sleeping on the top bunk. The third bedroom is in the attic and has twin beds. A lovely spacious room. The only snag is because it’s an attic with velux windows it gets very hot on sunny days and doesn’t really cool down at night – but we were just glad we got good weather!

The bathroom is fine, although could do with a little TLC. The property does seem to be well looked after though – some workmen called round towards the end of our stay saying that some of the windows were being replaced the following week.

The property owner is very efficient at responding to queries. Overall it was a lovely stay and we would stay again if we visit Largs in the future.

“Third Time Visitor”

As always, the accommodation is fantastic. The location is fantastic, the house is basically a home from home, a wee hidden gem.

The children love coming back year after year, and have come to call our visits to Blythswood, our wee holiday.

You can find out everything about Largs via Google, so I'll not go into detail as to what's on offer.

Looking forward to our next break hear, next year.

“Excellent home from home”
Reviewed November 16, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

Myself and 4 others stayed at this property for a week in November, and found it to be perfect. It is maintained to an excellent standard, with comfortable bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, and a wonderful bathroom and shower. Cathy, the landlady, is very organised and ensures you are provided with all the documents and details in a timely fashion. Joan, the local contact, is also extremely helpful. The house itself is located within walking distance of the town centre and train station, making it the perfect base to explore, There is also a large supermarket nearby, which is very handy.

All in all, the perfect holiday rental! Thank you!

“Good location and very comfortable.”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We visit this area regularly to visit family and friends and have stayed in most of the rental properties in the area over several years. This property is one of the best. It is a short walk into the centre of Largs, very close to the walks and promenades along the shoreline.
The property is comfortable and homely, comfortable bedrooms, good sized kitchen.
Bathroom and shower are excellent.
I would happily recommend this property as a comfortable place to stay if you ate planning a visit.
