“Perhaps the most relaxing break we've ever experienced in the UK”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A combination of breath taking views, thoughtfully furnished and comfortable accommodation and friendly local people made this the ideal base for our short break. At nights you can literally hear a pin drop! Strongly recommend!

“Lovely holiday house in a beautiful location - great holiday.”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely house in Carradale. The house is so comfortable and well looked after - it is obviously a much loved holiday home. The views from the conservatory are stunning and it’s well laid out with comfy seating and a table and chairs.

Carradale itself is just brilliant – full of signposted footpaths that lead to picturesque bays and even a little harbour. You can spot wildlife without really trying – we saw seals at Carradale Bay, wild goats and birds of prey – not to mention the many little rabbits. Just around the corner is a great bakery and shop – they bake fresh bread and cakes every day (except Sunday). We enjoyed a drink and played pool at the Carradale hotel (also just around the corner). We stayed 4 nights at Kelmscott (2 adults and 2 grown up children) and all thoroughly enjoyed the many walks and just relaxing in this beautiful and peaceful location.

“Great holiday home with great views”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Kelmscott is a lovely holiday home with everything you need for a great holiday and the views from the conservatory are stunning in all weathers! It's location in the village is very handy for the golf course, shop and pub! The house is modern and very clean with a sunny patio area and a log burner, perfect to relax in and enjoy in any season. We loved our August holiday and have visited multiple times since we discovered Kelmscott two years ago and look forward to returning again soon. Well done to the owners for making it such a beautiful place to spend a holiday!

“Great cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Recently back from a long weekend at Kelmscott cottage in Carradale which we thoroughly enjoyed. The cottage was very comfortable, well equipped with 2 spacious bedrooms, new kitchen and lovely lounge. The icing on the cake had to be the conservatory with its amazing views of the coast and Arran. We spent a lot of time gazing out of the window !!

Carradale its self was very nice and the beaches nearby were gorgeous . We were particularly fortunate with the weather and spent a lot of time outside. All in all a great break and would happily go back and stay here again.
