Perks for the Parents

A tranquil rural cottage in the Renfrewshire countryside with a hot tub, kids toys and spectacular views. It sleeps 5. The stunning location feels like the Scottish Highlands, yet it’s only 20 minutes away from Glasgow for sightseeing. The views are breathtaking and change with the seasons, while the rural area provides clear starry nights - a beautiful view from the hot tub in the evening. Surrounded by 70,000 acres of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, it’s also a great location for hiking, horse-riding, cycling in the fresh air.

Why Kids Love it

The property is well set-up for a young family, with lots of lovely toys, books and board games provided. The garden is perfect for kids to roam around in (with a swing set and slide) and there’s even a garden art room/ messy play space, where the kids can play freely. It’s a stunning rural location so has a sense of tranquility and freedom for children, who can roam freely in the glorious countryside and find trees to climb, hares to chase, or deer and pheasants to spot!

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 nights. Discounts will be offered for longer stays, please inquire. The property is set on one level. The hot tub is accessed by 2 steps and is not gated. There’s space for car parking for 4 cars - car rental is essential. Glasgow international airport is around 15 minutes away by car.

About the Location

The residence is located in the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, 20 minutes from Glasgow in Scotland. The Largs coast is around 20 minutes in the opposite direction. Muirshiel Country park offers excellent hiking and walking trails (5 minutes further along the road from the property). From the local village (5 minutes away) you can access all necessary amenities and some cafes. Castle Simple Loch, which offers sailing and watersports, is also close by. There are lots of outdoor activities in this area: walking in the Parkhill Woods, horse riding at Wardhouse Equestrian nearby, or the cycle path - National Cycle Network - easily accessed from the village.

The primary bedroom has a kingsize bed; the children’s room has 2 single beds and 1 toddler bed. Please note there is no bathtub; the bathroom has a walk-in shower. Outside, you’ll find child and adult swings, a large decking area, hot tub and a BBQ. The garden has views of the hills and mountains with no neighbors nearby.

Style Notes

Cozy cottage. The cottage is beautifully finished, with a comfortable mix of modern-Scottish design and a clean, minimalist look. Parents will sleep well on the emperor bed with luxury linens and the warming wood burner is perfect for cold winter nights! We love the original feature windows, the cute kid’s bedroom colors and the chic gray wood furniture.

We live between the tranquility of Scotland and the Arabian gulf. Our wonderful Scottish cottage is our home-from-home and are happy to share it with others. It is a hidden gem with a modern-Scottish twist. Cook on our amazing AGA, soak in our hot-tub surrounded by breathtaking scenery, walk in the beautiful surrounding hills. Allow the children to have that good, old-fashioned childhood experience, roaming wild and free! Please get in touch, we are happy to answer any questions.

Glasgow, Scotland

Prams, rockets and spitfires

Known for its art school and its architecture, Glasgow’s museums and galleries are a must see. Kids will love the Kelvingrove’s suspended Spitfire; Glasgow Science Centre is ideal for hands-on fun, while The Riverside Museum is packed with transport items from prams to rockets and is in a stunning Zaha Hadid-designed building. For a little more culture, why not visit the Tron Theatre for storytelling sessions for babies and toddlers, or take a day trip to Edinburgh, an hour away by train or car, for a two-city break.
