A mid-Victorian stone-built house of great charm and character offering "homestay B&B" for our discerning guests. We provide friendly traditional Scottish hospitality and the personal touch. Carlton is located in the residential coastal town of West Kilbride a stone's throw from Seamill Hydro Hotel and Seamill's picturesque sandy beach.
In the Scottish Hospitality Awards 2017 Carlton Seamill B&B was voted National Winner in the prestigious category "Scottish B&B of the Year 2017".
For three years running we have been either National or Regional Winner in these highly prized awards. ARCHITECTURE AND ENVIRONMENT For guests who love traditional Victorian architecture and panoramic Scottish scenery Carlton Seamill has much to offer. An impressive stone-built Scottish Victorian house dated 1883 Carlton occupies an ideal location at Seamill on the Ayrshire coast.
It enjoys a commanding view over Seamill shore and beach to the world-famous Firth of Clyde and the beautiful mountainous Isle of Arran. The Rennie Family have cherished Carlton carefully for almost 70 years. With its original period features mostly still intact it is a fine example of a Scottish Victorian family home.
Guests frequently remark on the house's relaxing 'get-away-from-it-all' atmosphere and on the craftsmanship style and graciousness that are characteristic of the Victorian era. On the ground-floor the handsome historically-detailed reception rooms afford magnificent views over the Rose Garden and the Croquet Lawn towards the peaks of Arran. Throughout the house Carlton's elegant Victorian staircase conveys a feeling of light and spaciousness leading to the comfortable first-floor guest-accommodation.
DIRECT BEACH ACCESS Carlton's west-facing garden-gate provides easy access to Seamill's extensive sandy beach - only a stone's-throw away. Our guests typically enjoy walking along the beach on a lovely evening watching the wheeling flocks of seabirds and the gregarious colonies of seals. Fabulous red-and-gold sunsets are Seamill's special feature!
