“Tranquillity”
Reviewed September 24, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My boyfriend and I were incredibly lucky to find, at last mintute this absolutely beautiful cottage to have a wee mini break in. We were greeted by the owners and treated like old family friends. The cottage it's self was so cosy and homely. Over the next two days made ourselfs at home, we were given the use of bikes and if it's your cup of tea there's a converted gym. Biggest feature and bonus of Oaktree was the HOT TUB situated in the back garden!! What a luxury!! May I just say this completely completed our holiday. So yes, if you're in the area and needing a place to stay then try this friendly, homely cottage complete with all mod cons and a luxury hot tub at your disposal. Thanks a million Robert, David and Jasper.

“Quality affordable accommodation in a gay friendly setting”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This cottage is a gem! Value for money plus the quality of the accommodation was second to none. As a visitor from Canada, the warm welcome from the hosts and the lovely setting in the Ayrshire countryside made this a high point of my Scottish holiday. An added bonus was that this was a gay friendly holiday rental. I highly recommend a stay at the cottage and would certainly come back again.

This gentleman spent 7 days at our cottage and managed to spend a day in Edinburgh and a day in Glasgow. He visited the Isle of Arran and spent much time visiting the historic castles and sites throughout Ayrshire. Thanks for leaving the cottage in a very tidy state. Hope you visit again sometime in the future and many thanks.

“Perfect hospitality”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here in the last weekend of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. The place was spotlessly clean, peaceful and beautiful. The hosts are professional, articulate and welcoming. They went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible and were generous to a fault. The cottage is well-equipped and a perfect base for a brilliant Scottish holiday or that peaceful getaway. It reminded us of a French Gîte we stayed in in Bordeaux. Plenty of wildlife about, too, including hares, deer and a range of birds of all kinds..

The location is superb, the Isle of Arran being visible from the garden yet the centre of Glasgow is less than half an hour away.

We had a great time here and will be back again for the unique Scottish hospitality offered by.

The Trip advisor location isn't correct (as of today). Put 55.721349,-4.666334 into your satnav. Look out for the white painted stones.

“Cosy and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a very good time at the Smithy cottage, the owners are very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The cottage is nice and comfortable, with a cosy living room, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, washing machine and separate bedrooms. A nice place to stay!
