Accommodation is in a spacious Victorian house, built in 1870. It is part of a courtyard with a deli, smokehouse and award-winning seafood restaurant.
The house is beside the A78 road, backing onto the Fairlie moors.

The space

The house is self contained with own entrance and garden, while being attached to the old farmhouse which is occupied by the owner. In the courtyard there is a farm shop where you can find fresh fish (locally caught by Bernard), seafood, smoked fish and other local produce. There is also an acclaimed seafood restaurant "The Catch at Fins". Fencefoot is ideally situated for exploring the Clyde Coast and Islands.

Guest access

There is a private garden in front of the house.

Interaction with guests

Bernard, the owner, lives next door in the old farmhouse. He has lived here for 30 years and knows the coast extremely well. He can help with local matters including where to dine and drink, and can offer fishing trips and boat rides around the islands.

Lovely little cottage with everything we needed. Bernard was a great and accommodating host. Lovely area which we have visited a couple of times now and the kids really enjoy.

Outstanding stay at Fencefoot. We arrived very late at night with no issue. Anything that we needed that we couldn't find was immediately helped. Cannot fault any part of our stay there. Thank you again.

Lovely large well-equipped house - great for exploring if you have a car but a bit of a walk to nearest bus stop and train station if you don't. Lovely fish restaurant and helpful farm shop right next door which is handy.

Very nice cottage, peaceful location. The restaurant on site is great, but it's worth knowing that it's not licensed to serve alcohol (so bring your own), and only open Thursdays, Fridays and weekends

We enjoyed a very relaxing long weekend at Fencefoot Farm. The cottage was full of character and equipped well for a family with young children. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed! The shower was not wall-hanging which proved slightly problematic for my elderly parents - but otherwise we found the cottage very homely and comfortable, my daughter was upset to leave! We particularly enjoyed having a wood-burning stove! Communication with Bernard was always quick and although we didn't meet him personally the staff in the shop were friendly and helpful, we had no problems whatsoever. We can't comment on local activities as were staying for a private event - but we'd be keen to return to the area in the future. Thanks Bernard!

Bernard's cottage at Fencebay Farm was a warm, welcoming Scottish escape for our family. A wonderful location to explore the Firth of Clyde coast and islands. Ice cream at the famous Nardini's was a must and a cruise around the Isle of Bute really showed us the splendour of the region. Bernard and all the staff at the farm, farm shop, and excellent restaurant (The Catch @ Fins) were so helpful and friendly and made our stay so memorable. It is located next to a main road which on occasion had some very fast cars passing, but the cottage has a mature front garden border with trees and stream so this did not bother us too much. There is ample opportunity for hiking through the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park right on the doorstep but we chose to relax more often than not. And the sun shone on more than one occasion. A wonderful stay.
