Doonbank Cottage is a beautiful thatched property set within four and a half acres of its own secluded private woodland, perfect for a family break, nature, fishing or golfing holiday, within easy reach of many of Scotland's most famous golf-courses.
Situated in the picturesque village of historic Alloway, close to the main town of Ayr on the west coast of Scotland, the cottage has glorious views of the idyllic River Doon, which runs for half a mile as the property's eastern boundary. The woodland contains deer, otters, rabbits, squirrels, pheasants, partridges, quails, owls, herons, ducks, blue-tits and many more species, offering excellent opportunities for bird watching and riverside walks.
Just 1 mile easy walk from the stunning Ayrshire coastline with its sandy beaches (such as Croy Shore, above), Doonbank is only a two minute stroll from the Burns Monument, Burns Cottage, Alloway Kirk, the Heads of Ayr and the world-famous Brig O'Doon, inspiration for Robert Burn's poem 'Tam O'Shanter'.
The immediate area is famous for its superb sporting facilities, including the championship golf courses of Turnberry and Royal Troon. Sailing, game and sea-fishing are all locally available. The area contains many castles and country parks, and it is only a short trip from the coast to the islands of Ailsa Craig, Arran and Cumbrae.
Doonbank Cottage is easily accessible by road, by air (Prestwick Airport 15 minutes) or by train (Ayr station 10 minutes). The cottage is available for holiday lets and short breaks throughout the year.
Doonbank offers not only a stunning natural environment but a luxury level of accommodation in a beautiful thatched cottage.
