The first thing you'll notice about Rosemary Cottage is the views over to the Isle of Arran and Ailsa Craig. This newly refurbished 3 bedroom cottage is just 1 mile from the world famous Turnberry Golf Course. But they don't just do golf, they also offer a Spa, trout fishing, falconry, clay target and rifle shooting. Maidens has a lovely long sandy beach as well as a small harbour. The nearby Wildings is a great family run restaurant. There is also a horse riding centre in Maidens. We've provided an information pack which tell you all about the surrounding area and what's good to see and do.

Wonderful relaxing holiday
Good house and location could not be bettered.
The one level accommodation is definitely a plus for "oldies" and dogs. The facilities are good and equipment also of a good standard We would highly recommend this house for "doggie" holidays as walkies and playing in the sea are on the doorstep . Having no need to drive to suitable venues is a bonus. However, a trip to Ayr is well worthwhile and offers good swimming for people and dogs! There is no charge for parking on much of the sea front and the views are magnificent.
The existence of a near by amazing local shop is helpful as is the Thursday tea-time visit of the Fish and Chip van. It can be seen if you look out of the window.
Altogether - a happy,relaxed holiday for the three of us!
Fabulous location, clean and good facilities within the cottage.
Stayed 3 nights with friends. Great location, clean, and comfy.
Lovely seaside cottage
I stayed here last week with my Sons and my Grandchildren. The cottage was very clean and welcoming. The rooms were spacious with lots of storage, and the kitchen very well equipped. There is a front porch for leaving all your wellies, coats and sandy things in, very handy! It was lovely having the garden for the children to play in and also, right outside the back gate, a large grassed area with an excellent park for the children. There is a place to sit in the front garden where, on a nice evening , you can watch the sunset. The sunsets can be quite spectacular here. There is also seating in the back garden and it is quite sheltered. There is a large choice of DVD and books for the evenings and comfy chairs to relax in, but if, like us, you are pleasantly tired from days of long walks and wonderful fresh air, the beds are very comfy too.
Everyday supplies ( and more) are available from the little shop which is just a minutes walk from the cottage. We also had a really nice meal at the Wildings Restaurant , only a short walk away. It is a very pleasant ( but longer) walk into Culzean Castle from Maidens.
I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to stay in Maidens, indeed I hope to visit again.
Lovely cottage in a stunning location
This cottage really is equipped with everything you need for a fantastic family holiday, even if the weather's not good enough to get out and enjoy the seaside location every day, thanks to the thoughtful provision of board and electronic games, DVDs and books. Gavin, the owner, is very helpful and accommodating and responds quickly to messages. The cottage is remote enough from the main road to feel quiet and private, while still being within easy reach by car of the amenities offered by Ayr and Girvan. If you don't have your own transport, I understand there is a bus service from the village every hour during business hours to both the above towns - and there's also an open-all-hours type shop literally two minutes' walk from the cottage if you prefer just to stay put and admire the spectacular views. We can personally recommend Souter's Inn in nearby Kirkoswald for lunch or dinner, but there is also a local restaurant, Wilding's (which we didn't visit, but which has good reviews) within walking distance. The only disappointment we encountered - not due to the property in any way - was that the immediately local equestrian centre, despite having a live website, has apparently now closed for riding/trekking purposes, so if you are planning to include horse riding in your holiday you will need to look outside the village. Thanks, Gavin, for a fabulous holiday!
