The upper has shower cabinet, washbasin and toilet

Parking outside house on street or in field ground adjacent

Largs Town Centre: The compact town centre, which is only ten minutes walk from the Villa, is attractive and is close to both the sea front and the Cumbrae ferry terminal. Parking can be difficult in high season. It has a supermarket and many shops including WH Smith and Superdrug. There are many cafes, bars, restaurants and take aways. For the energetic walker and sporty type Largs and surrounding areas offers much including a top class sporting centre. For those who wish to totally relax the promenade walks are gentle, in particular the walk to the Marina, via the Pencil Monument, where you can have a refreshment and dine in very pleasant surroundings.

A regular train service to Glasgow operates seven days a week and it allows for connections to both Glasgow and Prestwick airports. Good reasonably priced taxis are readily available. Frequent bus service to Greenock, Ayr and Glasgow. For full details on methods of travelling to and about Largs and surrounding area, visit the Tourist Information Centre beside railway station.

For historical information visit the Historical Society which is in Manse Court (adjacent to the George Inn in the Main Street). Also St.Columba;s Church.

Golf: Many golfers who wish to play the many excellent courses in Ayrshire -there are 45 of them- (including Turnberry and Royal Troon) use Largs as their base because of the 2 local courses, Routenburn (where a young Sam Torrance learnt his craft) and Kelburn and the fact that most courses are within 15 to 45 minutes drive from Largs. Virtually all courses welcome visitors and are reasonably priced. Expect to pay quite a bit more for Royal Troon and Turnberry and they are likely to ask for handicap certificates. Specific details on courses and their location can be provided on request although the Internet gives considerable detail on each course. The Island of Cumbrae which lies about a mile off the Largs coast has a good 18 holes and provides wonderful vistas of the Clyde and its islands. It is very popular and prior booking is recommended. The Island of Arran has a number of good courses (9 and 18 holes). The Island of Arran is reached by car ferry from Ardrossan (12 miles south of Largs)

Excursion Trips: These are numerous and a visit to the Tourist Information Centre is worthwhile. However have a day out in the county town of Ayr and take in the Robert Burns country. He was born in Alloway just south of Ayr. Burns cottage is now a museum. Close to the cottage is the recently opened Burns Experience Centre. One hour's drive will take you to the Trossachs which on a fine day is a scenic delight. From here you can go onto Stirling and visit its very fine castle. The remarkable Falkirk Wheel in the town of Falkirk and should be visited. Rob Roy's country is close by. Take a ferry from Gourock over to the island of Bute (Dunoon or Hunter's Quay) and meander up the A885 through the scenic grandeur wildness of Argyleshire to Tarbet. From there turn south and this will take you beside the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond. Keep on the A82 and cross the Erskine Bridge and back on to the M8 towards Greenock and eventual return to Largs. These are relaxing drives and the roads are seldom busy. Glasgow is 50 min drive from Largs and Edinburgh 1.5 hours.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Had a wonderful time in Largs.So lucky with the weather-out in our "T" shirts during the day. No need for wellies and foul weather gear dragged up by the non-believers from London

All of us (including the little ones) cycled round Cumbrae and saw the seals. Visited Vikingar, walked to Kelburn Country Park and had access to most of its amenities including a paddock ride. Had lovely coffee at the Marina -half the price in London. Spent a great day on the beach near the Pencil. Big finale was an evening walk to Nardini's cafe for a double cone and some stargazing on the beach. The Sassenach and Teutonian mothers could not believe the clean air and water, spectacular views and friendlieness of the locals.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your house. The kids all shouted a fond farewell when we left for the train. It was a very welcome home for us for those few days. The kitchen had everything we could have needed and more. We could all sit around the dining table for meals and the sitting room was a cosy fit in the evenings. We made use of the board games that were available; the wee ones played endless rounds of Junior Scrabble and the older ones chess.

Everything was much to our satisfaction and your folders really helpful. Perhaps I shouldn't say this but I think you could charge a bit more!

Thanks once again.

IDEAL VENUE FOR A HOLIDAY IN LARGES

  • 4 of 5
Excellent description of the property. Interior is a little dated but very clean and comfortable. Plenty of kitchen equipment, dishes etc. Ideally situated for a leisurely stroll into the Town. Plenty of attractions, restaurants, pubs. Large garden at the rear, good for a barbeque. We will be staying again next Summer, have already booked it.

Owner's Response: A very fair assessment. I believe in offering good value for money. I have endeavoured to give holidaymakers a comfortable, clean, well equipped house, and with the good sized garden, it should prove to be satisfactory holiday home for most holidamakers.

PERFECT FOR GROUPS

  • 4 of 5
Stayed here with a group of friends and the house is perfect for people looking for an affordable but nice place that sleeps a large number. The location is great for exploring Largs and parking was very convenient. We found the information in the listing very accurate and the owner responded promptly to all further questions. We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

OLYMPIC ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
We live near one of the Olympic sites and travelled to Largs to escape the traffic! We were a mixed group of family and friends and we found that the house was comfortable and well-appointed. Some of our party travelled from Glasgow airport which was only half an hour away. The house description and photographs are accurate yet you can only appreciate the welcoming ambience and homely features when you get there. Beds are lovely and comfy and we appreciated them being made up on arrival with fresh towels to hand. The garden is well-maintained, plenty of seats and space and there is even a small field next door for exercising your dog. We could all sit together in the lounge area and dining room and there were enough plates and utensils to go around. We have stayed in many places that are supposed to cater for 10 people but don't! There is a folder with a wealth of tips and local information to help you make the most of your stay. There is a sandy/stony beach on your doorstep and it is an easy walk to town along the coast. We recommend the Village Inn, Tony Macaroni for pizza/pasta and Nardinis Ice Cream Parlour where you can have awesome fish and chips and a 16 scoop icecream sundae! The local yacht club restaurant Oscar's is great for a special occasion. Slightly further afield is The Hungry Monk - about 20mins drive away but a good carvery and generous portions.Largs is great for wandering around the shops - we recommend the local butchers/fish shop/greengrocers/health shop. You can get all the delicacies, Lorne sausage, black pudding, white pudding, cloutie dumpling to make the most of your breakfast. Trips to Cumbrae and Arran by ferry are a good day out, book in advance and leave your car behind for those trips as cars are expensive to take across. Lunderston bay is worth a visit for a beach trip as is Saltcoats - the town is not worth stopping at but Saltcoats beach is the best in the area. Most beaches and pubs are dog friendly even in August!! Morrisons is very close to the house but the Haylie stores are a handy corner shop. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and was prompt and courteous in all matters. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property for a relaxing holiday.

FAMILY FROM CANADA

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home and we were very happy staying there for two weeks. A house with character and some beautiful antique furniture blended with modern. Cosy and warm, the heating system works very well. Enclosed garden at rear was great for BBQ's. You would have to be a very light sleeper to let the adjacent rail track disturb you as the tracks are down in a gully and the Loco's are electric. I would highly recommend this house and would rent it again. I spoke with the owner personally.....very nice man.

VALUE FOR MONEY...FAMILY OR LARGE GROUP BREAK!

  • 4 of 5
This property is great value for money & the location is wonderful. A hop from the sea front...the centre is a ten minute walk away. There are activities for all ages including a play park & skateboarding areas for the young ones and some great places to eat including ice cream parlours. Largs has a castle with lots to see for all ages. The drive along the coast is picturesque. There is a local Morrison’s store or a large Tesco a few miles away. The house is dated in places as other reviews have mentioned but the facilities are great & clean. Well equipped kitchen & sleeps 12 comfortably. We did take some extra outdoor chairs though. In response to the comments about the hard beds & trains being too close...only one bed is slightly hard & I noticed two train noises in four days...they were not an issue, it is clearly not a main route. The garden is a great size & there is plenty of parking on the street. Many members of the party plan to return to this property in the future...don’t forget your insect repellent in season!

Owner's Response: Very pleased with review and an accurate portrayal. The furnishings are dated in places but the owner retains these as they give the house character. The key features, however, are modern.
The "hard" bed mattress is being replaced by a memory foam mattress. Can't do much about the midges. They haven't been much of a nuisance in recent years. The wet weather in late spring probably culprit this year.
