Lovely cottage all on one level, very well equipped newly fitted kitchen, comfortable beds, nice new bathroom with walk in shower. Friendly helpful owner. Really nice touches such as welcome pack of bread, milk etc, good selection of DVDs, CDs and board games.
Teenage sons happy that there was wifi!
Easy walking distance to beach and amenities, including restaurants and train station. Very close to cycle network. Nice walks and little traffic. Trains every half an hour to Glasgow (journey about 45 mins).
Would definitely stay again and would recommend to couples and families.

“Fabulous stay - beautiful location”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My elderly parents and I visited South Ayrshire from Canada this past September. We did a fair bit of commuting back and forth from Troon to Ayr, to visit with an ill relative. We stayed at Curlew Cottage for a total of 3 weeks.

It was lovely to have such a great accommodation to come home to at the end of the day. The cottage itself has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, the garden is lovely for relaxing with a glass of wine, and the seaside in Troon is breathtaking - only 5 minutes away. Amenities were near enough to walk to - the bus into Ayr was just at the end of the crescent. The crescent itself was very quiet. We had a lovely stay and our hosts could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend Curlew Cottage to others. I am hoping to return next year with my husband for a real vacation. Great for couples or families.

“Curlew Cottage was a home from home”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from our holiday at Curlew Cottage.Our stay was very comfortable and the attention to detail was excellent! The extra touches of milk and bread on arrival and the great range of cleaning/kitchen supplies made life a lot easier on arrival and was very much appreciated.The cottage was in a lovely quiet location and yet easily accessible to the beach and Troon town.The weather also managed to be good to us most of our stay,so a good break was had by all.Thanks to Murray for making us so welcome and we hope to return to Curlew again in the future.
