Rose Cottage

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Millport, Great Cumbrae, The Cumbraes, North Ayrshire, Ayrshire, Scotland
Rose Cottage is a tiny delightful secluded lower cottage, tucked away behind another building in George Street in Millport, on the little island of Cumbrae. We accept up to two dogs
.The cottage has a compact combined kitchen/ living area, and a large bedroom, and the day bed in the bedroom can also be used as a comfortable couch. The addition of a Smart TV in each room means that you can use either room as a living room, depending on your party size and age span. Please note the cottage is very small- four guests is the absolute maximum, and this is probably best comprised of 2 adults and 2 children! As all the beds are in the only bedroom, it's not really suitable for two couples.Single guests or couples are very welcome.
Bedding for the double bed is supplied, please bring your own towels ,or ask me for a towel bale at an addition...

Keys are in the key safe outside the cottage, ( I will send you the number when you book and pay in full ) but w eare often on the island as we have other properties here.

Arrived during dreadful weather to find a lovely warm cottage. Our dog was with us and treats and water bowl was supplied. The beach was only a short walk away, although we couldn't take advantage of this due to the awful weather.

Hi Beryl, we hope your next visit to Rose Cottage will be in better weather- storm followed storm, unfortunately !

As a holiday home it is very good. Nice touch with the wine concerning the builders who really didn't cause us much annoyance. Kids loved the place, especially the two tvs and Netflix! Needs a wee bit of TLC [easily remedied] but otherwise fine. We...More

Thanks for your review! Rose Cottage has been almost fully booked since April, so we usually undertake any freshening up over the winter. A bathroom refit is scheduled for November! Hope to see you next year.

Great location. Mostly very quiet - unless nearby Pub is having Karaoke night. Small, but well laid out. Very pretty garden. Well-maintained. Very easy to contact owner. It is possible to park nearby.

About the neighborhood
Millport is a charming Victorian town, the only one on the tiny Island Of Great Cumbrae. It;s many beaches, all of which are dog friendly, are a great place to spot seals in the winter, or enjoy a family holiday in the summer. Rose Cottage is in George Street, and this street runs parallel to the seafront, one street back from the promenade, making it a quieter location than a seafront apartment. The nearest beach is the broad sweep of Kames Bay, about five minutes walk from the cottage, or head the other direction and enjoy the tranquility of the Cathedral and it;s grounds, covered in wild garlic at the beginning of May. Millport has plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes, and some shops and a small supermarket, please note there is no petrol station on the island.A car is not necessary, a... more
Getting around
the whole of Millport town can be easily walked in about twenty minutes, from the wide sweep of sand at Kames Bay, down the main st to the old Harbour. A network of little streets branch off these. A car is not needed unless you have mobility problems, and if you want to visit the beaches outside the town- why not hire a bike to do this? There are ample bike shops in the town. There is a taxi service ( cards in the cottage ) if you miss the bus to the ferry.
Car not needed
How to get there
A train from glasgow central station leaves hourly. The ferry terminal is just a few mins walk from here- buy your ticket before boarding!_ and a bus meets every ferry. Please note the ferry terminal on the Isle is about ten mins drive or bus journey into the town of Millport.
Once in the town, the cottage is in a side street, one street behind the main promenade. It's almost exactly half way along- meaning everything in the town is no more than ten mins walk in either direction!
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Nearest Beach: 0.3 mi.
