The house is situated up in the hill overlooking Brodick and in the distance you can look at the ferry crossing from Arran with excellent views of Goatfell and the decked patio and patio doors allows you to have a peaceful and relaxing time. I hoped that this would be safe for the my 1 and 3 year old and it had much more like garden,geese, hens and 3 lovely cats. the inside of the house had lots of space and every utensil needed so I would recommend buying food if your staying for 2 weeks. lesley and her family where very helpful and got us some sausages for the bbq.
We took our bikes and a trailer for the kids but left them in a safe area at the bottom of the hill.
3 places to visit I recommend the Ormidale hotel for lunch.
The holy Isles and monastery at Lamlash.
The little garden centre just past Brodick primary. The cafe has the cheapest and good food just £2 for a double.
we will return and next time for longer thanks Lesley.
We had an excellent week staying at Merlin Cottage. Well equipped and spacious, with the added bonus of visiting cats and free range chickens and geese - even one that can untie your shoe laces. Lesley is a great host, lots of local information, and help where needed. (And she cooks a tasty rhubarb crumble too). Lots to do on the island for walkers, bird watchers, and others. Will love to go back.
The location is great near to Brodick village but in the countryside with fantastic views. The accommodation is spacious and very well equipped. The hens, geese and cats are an added bonus as are the fresh free range eggs.
Leslie and Dennis are great hosts: friendly and attentive. We would recommend this to anyone.
