Whether you're looking for a one night business stopover, a couple of nights to attend a wedding at the Brig O'Doon, or a self catering holiday break, Doonbank Cottage's Bothy offers an exclusive, flexible & private accommodation.

Doonbank Bothy is a beautifully presented & spacious, one bed detached house. Set in 4 acres of woodland on the banks of the River Doon & forming part of Doonbank Cottage's woodland garden, it is a very peaceful and quiet location.

One (medium sized) dog allowed.

The space
The bothy sleeps two adults. We also have a free cot for under 2s and (on request) a separate single fold-a-way bed for an under 10 year old (additional £10 per night). Downstairs we also have a sofa bed. As well as having access to the woodland and river, it also has it's own private back garden and patio area with BBQ to relax in.

Situated in the picturesque village of historic Alloway in Ayrshire, a 10 minute walk to the world famous Brig O'Doon, Burns National Heritage Centre, the Brig O' Doon Hotel and Burns Cottage. On the edge of the main town of Ayr on the west coast of Scotland, the Bothy has glorious views over the idyllic River Doon, which runs for half a mile as the property's eastern boundary, offering excellent opportunities for bird watching and riverside walks after a busy day.

Guest access
The Bothy is a private detached one bedroom 2 storey house with both a private garden, outside patio space and dedicated parking. Guests also have access to the 4.5 acre woodland garden and River Doon. Our woodland ends just a few minutes walk to the Brig O'Doon.

Other things to note
We also currently run two experiences, which you can book through AirBNB. You could stay in the Bothy and either attend yourself, or why not also invite friends or family to join you for one of the experiences too! Makes a great present or family activity.

I am now retired and now really enjoy managing the Bothy, meeting some great guests and enjoying a really good work/life re-balance. Prior to this I was a Learning and Development Manager for a number of companies. You can easily find me on LinkedIn to see a more detailed overview. I am happily married to my wife Susan and we have a lovely Norwegian Forest cat called Jorgie, 6 chickens (Bluebell, Hetty, Millie, Bessie, Annie and Daisy), two ducks (Betsy and Gemima) and honey bees! Doonbank is a very special place and an amazing location and I absolutely love the peace, tranquility and wildlife which I now have time for! I also enjoy cooking and chocolate! From April 2020 we will also be running two experiences (available to book now through AirBNB). 'Introduction to keeping chickens' and 'the wonderful world of honey bees'. Dates: Sunday 26th April 2020; Sunday 31st May 2020; Sunday 28th June 2020; Sunday 26th July 2020; Sunday 16th August 2020 We will also have a restored bow top Gypsy wagon available as extra Bothy sleeping accommodation. (two single beds or a double) , so lots to look forward to.
