Cottage owners expect you to leave the property in the same condition as you found it - clean and tidy - and will almost always provide cleaning materials for you. Dog owners favour cottage holidays because many properties will not just allow pets but provide a few basic supplies. Our great value holiday cottages to rent in Ayr are sometimes available for rent for a weekend, week, fortnight, two weeks or even longer. 

Ayr Accomodation

In Ayr, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. The school summer holidays generally run from the middle of July to late August. 

If you want to avoid half-term in the summer, draw a line through the first two weeks of June. It's becoming less likely to book the best cottages last minute, but by no means impossible. We recommend you give it a try. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

Holiday Cottages

Our site does not make reservations directly and so we ask that any queries you have with the Ayr cottage are taken up with the owner or agency. Everyone owner or lettings agency can have a slightly different cancellation policy so please be sure to check before you make your reservation. 

We've often found the properties have a list of nearby places to grab a bite or a beer - and if the owners are nearby they may filter down the recommendations based on your needs. Ayr is a great locations for a cottage holiday due to their proximity to local facilities and amenities. 

Some people ask whether bed linens and towels are provide, and in our experience linen is yes, towels can be no - but you should check with the owner / agency. 

Families, Friends and More

Young children and babies can be more easily accommodated for in a holiday cottage where the parents do not feel pressure from other families who may not have young children. Young children can make your stay even more fun, and we have a few suggestions of things to bring. 

First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Ayr will carry tear-free shampoo. A long car journey can turn the most engaged children into bored zombies, so take some snacks and have a few games ready to play. 

Clothes for the full range of weather; just because you don't think that it looks good outside in the rain it doesn't mean that the little ones will agree.
