This Garden Cottage so named because it is surrounded by four large gardens as well as its own good sized garden both front and back. There is a king sized double bedroom on the ground floor making this handier for less mobile guests. Upstairs is a standard double bedded room and a twin bedded room. Bathroom with shower over bath is on the ground floor next to the downstairs king sized double bedroom. There is a marble fireplace with Baxi gas fire in the lounge dining room. The separate kitchen has a breakfast bar. Gas central heating. There is street parking in the quiet no-through road. Free WiFi.
We can supply a lot of items for children such as cots high chairs toys, books, etc and there is a small child’s chair in the lounge area with a compact library to entertain small and tall people.
It is an 8 minutes flat walk to Prestwick town centre or the beach. Prestwick Town train station is a 5 minute drive away. Being near Ayr, a local bus service to near the cottage links the cottage to Ayr Bus Station. Prestwick Airport is under a 10 minute drive away.
The private gardens have been landscaped front and back mostly by the owner herself taking two years of rewarding toil to transform a wilderness that was briars and shrubs but is now a tranquil haven of lawn and shrubs yet near to the bustle of Prestwick, a scenic town in Ayrshire with a range of quality restaurants and pubs. Being in a cul-de-sac, the cottage is very quiet. It is freshly decorated and the floors are fine pine throughout with a scattering of rugs. From the kitchen, you can access the rear walled, enclosed and lawned garden with patio and barbeque. The front garden is lawn with shrubs and a garden bench ideal for a pause for mediation or just to take in the garden.
Prestwick is a busy town with an attractive promenade for walking or cycling. The cottage is close to National Route 7 for cycling the Ayrshire Coastal route with the Ayrshire Coastal Walking Path closeby too.

There are a range of restaurants, pubs and shops to suit all tastes and budgets.
