A refined, rural location in the beautiful Ayrshire countryside

Make yourself comfortable in one of our two well-appointed self-catering barn conversions, where you can expect a warm welcome and charming surroundings as standard.

Nestling discretely in rolling countryside close to the village of Mauchline, these contemporary yet sympathetic barn conversions make Darnhay Cottage Holidays the perfect retreat.

The lovely village of Mauchline quietly nestles amidst glorious hills and farmland and is ideally situated for exploring the magnificent scenery of Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran.

Here you can walk in the footsteps of Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns, who spent arguably his most creative and productive period as a writer, close to the village. The village is well-known as the home of "Rabbie" Burns, who lived and farmed in the area with his wife Jean Armour for many years. The house they shared is now a museum and forms part of the famous Ayrshire Burns Trail.
