Description from manager
Located in the heart of Corsewall Estate, close to the village of Kirkcolm, surrounded by historic woodland, Garden Cottage forms the west wing of the 18th Century Corsewall House and has wonderful views across Loch Ryan.
Recently restored, with three bedrooms, this luxury self catering cottage comfortably accommodates six.
The living area downstairs is open plan with a stylish kitchen including a Belfast sink and large dining table.
The spacious sitting room, furnished with arm chairs and sofas, is south facing and overlooks the extensive estate gardens, which in spring burst with colour from the Rhododendrons and Azaleas.
There is twin/double bedroom with zip and link beds on the ground floor with an en suite bathroom. There is also a shower room & WC and a utility room.
Upstairs, there is a twin and a double bedroom with a bathroom and en suite shower respectively.
All linen, fluffy white towels, extra thick, feather-filled duvets and pillows are provided. Heating and electricity are also included in the price.
Garden Cottage is equipped with a flat screen television, Freeview Box, DVD player; iPod radio/docking station and WiFi, a selection of board games, books and classic films. It has its own private garden area including garden furniture, croquet and swing ball sets and a barbecue.
Corsewall Estate has three pretty beaches on Loch Ryan - Boat Bank, Lady Bay and Port Beg - that Garden Cottage guests can explore. A pretty walk down one of the drives will take you to Boat Bank, which is the nearest one to Garden and Stables Cottage. Both Boat Bank and Lady Bay are wonderful spots if you like collecting shells or pebbles - oyster shells and mussels to cowries and scallop shells never fail to disappoint. Bird watching down on the shores of Loch Ryan or in the woods is second to none.
Port Beg is a pretty bay, pebbly down to the waterline and then sandy in the sea - ideal for paddling and swimming. There are lots of rock pools - so a bucket and a net is a must for the kids! There's a grassy area for picnics and barbies and the views out to sea, with Ailsa Craig in the foreground and the Isle of Arran in the distance, are simply magical.
Garden Cottage has huge lawns in front of the house - so it's a great place for children to play football or for a game of croquet - croquet set supplied!
The gardens provide a secure environment for children and it is a wonderful location for them to enjoy the great outdoors and play good old fashioned games from hide and seek to kick the can. The lawns are great for running about, and there are lots of little banks, which are ideal for rolling down. A stream runs through the estate, so with two stone bridges and an endless supply of sticks, Pooh sticks is always a fun game for children to enjoy.
And families are welcome to set up camp in the woods beside the lawns - we provide the tent, roll mats, wood and campfire location - guests just need to bring their sleeping bags! And if it all gets too much for some younger members of the camping party, they can always retreat back to home comforts indoors.
Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland adjacent to Corsewall House, there are lots of tracks around the estate you can enjoy - on foot or by bike. This also makes it a great holiday for dogs too! In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils and in April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with camellia from January to March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the rhododendrons and azaleas come into flower. The autumn sees the hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November.
There is oodles of wildlife to spot – from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel.
The Blue Peter pub in the village of Kirkcolm is 3/4s of a mile away. Under new ownership, the pub has good pub grub and also does great take away fish and chips - a 'must eat' while on holiday by the coast!
We have a second cottage, Stables Cottage, about 50 metres from Garden Cottage, which sleeps 4 - so groups of up to 10 can easily be accommodated in both locations.
