Fantastic Accomodation - Excellent Value
This property is truly well worth the cost, it is in a good location for many of the attractions of South West Scotland, Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran. The location of the property is somewhat secluded down a track but it is such a tranquil location surrounded by fields and the River Ayr. The owners Linda and Bob Forbes live on site but apart from the most friendliest of greetings you seldom see them but they are always available if required. The Barn is extremely comfortable, it is in superb condition with all the modern appliances one would require, there is Wifi which is reliable and adequate for most peoples needs ( you are, after all , on holiday !) The family bathroom and en-suite are very spacious both having large walk in showers with a powerful water flow. On arrival you will find Linda and Bob have provided a jar of homemade marmalade, a home made loaf, eggs, fruit and milk for you to have as they say " breakfast on them" We would not hesitate to return and neither would our dog Molly who loved the place even though she was wary of the cows that are in some of the fields. So if you are looking for a holiday cottage in this area then The Barn should be your number one choice. There is also another property on the site, The Stables , which from what the occupants told us is just as well appointed as The Barn.

Feels just like home.
The Barn at Daldorch is an idyllic place to stay when visiting Ayrshire. It is quite comfortable and the amenities are top-notch. The hosts could not be more gracious and friendly. The views around the Barn at Doldorch are gorgeous. The River Ayr runs nearby and the flowing water can be heard through the copse that forms the edge of the property. In the front are hedge-bordered fields with grazing livestock, fat pheasants, soaring eagles and several other wild birds for visitors to watch.

The house was immaculate, everything in it was well thought out and of top quality, a real home from home - if my home was as nice. Loved the walks along the river behind the house, they were perfect for wearing out a husband and a lively spaniel! A wonderful location to explore the beautiful countryside. This was our first visit to Scotland, there is so much to do we will have to come back!
Mrs Long

The Barn at Daldorch is a lovely cottage, in a lovely quiet area. Everything you need is supplied. All furnishings are excellent.
Ms Maxwell

This cottage is of an extremely high standard with touches that make it feel more like a home than a holiday cottage. The location is very rural, 2 miles from the main road, so it was very quiet. Weather permitting the garden is an ideal place for relaxing and eating in the garden.
