Staying in a Ayr holiday cottage can be a perfect way to take a break as you can forget about household chores and focus on having fun, or a relaxing break. Always check with the Ayr cottage owner before you take pets - although many are pet friendly. We have many of the best rental holiday cottages in Ayr for a family or group of friends - for cottage breaks in Ayr 

Ayr Accomodation

The rates for Ayr cottages are highest in the warmer months, generally aligning with the school holidays. School holidays tend to be mid-July to the end of August. 

Half term in the summer extends across the first half of June, as different schools break up at different times. Although we really encourage you too book your cottage early, there are opportunities for last minute bookings, so it can be worth checking. 

Some of the best cottages in the UK are fiercely independent and have incredibly high standards, and more recently the rise of agencies has helped increase standards right across the board.

Holiday Cottages

Whether you're going away with friends or family to Ayr, you'll want to consider the type of accommodation you book. Do you need twin beds or double beds, can the kids share a room, will your friends all want separate bedrooms? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Ayr cottage. Not all places will welcome pets so please make sure that it's either clearly marked on the booking website, or if not drop a quick line to the owner to make sure. 

Wherever you stay, whether it's in Ayr or elsewhere, we hope you have a fabulous holiday! 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Ayr. No worrying about getting to the dining room in time, either before the hotel declares that breakfast is over, or trying to fit in with other b and b guests. 

And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! Waking up without the alarm, cooking a nice hearty breakfast, perhaps sitting by the river for a spot of fishing or just reading a book. 

But you may want to get out and burn some energy on bikes, climb a hill or mountain, or even try canoeing. Whatever you choose, please take the right clothing and equipment with you.
