Ashlea Farm, Kings Cross, Isle of Arran, Ka27 8RG
We take Covid precautions very seriously to protect our guests and ourselves. The accommodation is thoroughly aired, cleaned and all touchpoints disinfected between guests.
Luxury holiday experience on a working smallholding in a peaceful and tranquil setting, surrounded by fields with sea views from the private sunny garden.
Newly refurbished cottage, which forms a single storey traditional 1 bedroom stone building, attached to our farmhouse.
The cottage enjoys brand new contemporary styling inside and is designed for 2 people.
It is non smoking and dogs are welcome.
We are well located, in the quiet enclave of King’s Cross just off the main road between Lamlash and Whiting Bay, around 15 minutes drive from Brodick. Entry to Ashlea Farm is by way of a long private track, with plenty of parking in our private farmyard adjacent to the cottage.
Public transport is accessible - the bus stop for King’s Cross is about 10 minutes walk from the cottage along a flat and quiet country road, or, alternatively about 15 minutes stroll through our fields (sometimes a bit muddy underfoot) down the hill to the beach and along to the bus stop at Sandbraes, which is at the north end of Whiting Bay.
The cottage extends to around 50m2 and is fully equipped. The bedroom has a super-kingsize bed that can be set up as a large double or two singles as you prefer. The lounge is open plan to the kitchen/diner, with living flame gas fire and TV/DVD. The kitchen is new and modern, with dishwasher and full size gas cooker, under-counter fridge with icebox and a microwave. There is a shiny new shower room, oil central heating and plenty hot water. Broadband is also available.
Our favourite spot is the lovely bright conservatory from where you can relax and enjoy a quiet drink or a coffee and take in the views across the garden to the fields and the sea beyond.
The wildlife here is extraordinary, and we regularly see all sorts of birds, including a barn owl flitting across the fields at dusk. We also have a small fold (herd) of young Highland Cattle in residence, and some hens who provide lovely fresh eggs to us and our guests as available.
The cottage has a sunny enclosed private garden laid to lawn, and is surrounded by hedges and a tall fence on one side. There is ample outdoor seating provided and a gate giving direct access to our private fields. Our land slopes down to a quiet sandy beach at Sandbraes, and we are currently constructing a private path network through our land for access to the beach. The Arran Coastal Path also runs through part of the land adjacent to the beach. There is a plethora of pleasant walking routes in the area which can be directly accessed from the cottage.
Currently, our rates are £100 per night for a week’s stay, with a special opening offer of the 7th night free, so £600 per 7 nights.
This rate includes all utilities, bedding and towels, a full covid safe cleaning protocol and welcome pack.
Short breaks of a minimum of 3 nights may be available by arrangement at a rate of £120 per night.
Ashlea Farm is a working smallholding, and there is often some building and maintenance work happening around the farm. However, any noisy activity will be minimised, particularly when guests are in residence.
