General

  • Peaceful rural site on 40 acres of farm and woods a mile from Catrine
  • Half an hour's drive from the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayr
  • Wildlife walks, pony rides and Ayr river fishing on site

A serene spot with rural views all around, ripe for hours of nature walks and fishing, but with the added bonus of easy access directly off the A76 – what a winning combo.

There are woods and fields all around at Catrine House, a 40-acre rural site on the banks of the Ayr river. Hens and cows reside on the family-run farm, and there’s plenty of space for kids and dogs (or released-from-the-office grownups) to run about and let off steam among the woods and open spaces.

The Ayr river runs through the farm’s grounds, so bring your kit for a bit of fishing, or enlist some expert help from the owners if you need a little tuition in the skills. The friendly folks on site can also organise wildlife-spotting walks and pony rides around the estate for an extra charge.

The vibe here may be decidedly rural, but you’re hardly cut off in the middle of nowhere: there’s an excellent café a mile away in Catrine, and a couple of food pubs within a few minutes’ drive. If you can’t be enticed away from your countryside idyll you’re welcome to light up a barbie, or have dinner delivered to the site from the local Chinese takeaway.

    This is a site that is being updated the owner is working hard to improve the facilities New toilets and shower up and running , a long way to go BUT ... The Ehu was good the paddocks and walks for the dog were supper . The sunset and views lovely (close to A70 ) therefore road noise but so easy to find I wish this young man all the best in the future and hope he is successful in developing his dream , horses.

Local attractions

Rabbie Burns fans will do well around this area: it’ll take you around half an hour to get to Ayr to visit the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and the poet’s childhood home, now known as Burns Cottage. The 15th-century Brig o’ Doon (the setting for Tam o' Shanter) is a short trot from these attractions, and you can finish your day following in Burns’ footsteps with a pint at Poosie Nansies Inn, a couple of miles from the site.

Ayr’s also a great place for a seaside walk or beach paddle; for more activity, there’s a riding centre 20 minutes’ drive from Catrine House and a golf course just a couple of minutes away. Horsey types may well also want to drop in on the gentle giants at Blackstone Clydesdales, 10 minutes away.

For a slice of history, take a 20-minute ramble to the rock art site at Ballochmyle, or drive for 10 minutes to the 2,000-acre estate of Dumfries House, home to some gorgeous gardens and a splendid Chippendale collection.

Must see

  • Burns National Heritage Park (12.5 miles)
  • Scottish Maritime Museum (15.3 miles)
  • Culzean Castle & Country Park (20.0 miles)
