Recently while travelling within the U K we found this by chance on the Internet.
By this stage of our Road Trip we had decided to base ourselves somewhere for Four days to have a clean out of our Hire Car, repackage the bags and have a gentle wander around the area.
We ended up staying Six days as the welcome we received was marvellous.
Joyce is a born Hostess her gracious and friendly manner was very easy to enjoy. Ian was also friendly and a proud Dad indeed after their Son had won Champion of the Show in a District Sheep Competition as we also have Family on the land in Australia and understand what a achievement winning events such as this.
Breakfast was as much as you wished, food was plentiful, fresh and well served in the dinning room. Joyce even done some washing for us and wouldn't hear of being paid extra for it so we hope she enjoyed the box of chocolates we left as a thank you.
The property is well placed to enjoy the area and we had no trouble filling in the Six days.
Ayr is only 8 miles away and just up the road is The Hollybrook Inn, indeed a great Scottish Inn very delicious food to be found with quite large servings of deserts.
I can't speak highly enough of Ian & Joyce it was one odour Trips highlights.
This is a great B & B and deserves to be a huge success.
The only down side was the Internet service was a bit hit and miss, we never tried the Television as we don't watch much T V other than that, All Good.
Thank You Joyce, Denis & Margaret the two crazy Aussies.
