Retaining many wonderful original features and set in a semi-rural location, The Old Church features a welcoming wood burner, large bespoke wooden dining table, huge covered south facing deck with fire pit and views over open countryside. With two secluded one bedroom lodges within the grounds featuring their own private covered decks, The Old Church is ideally suited to friends and family gatherings. The grocery shop & restaurant are a 5 minute walk, with many attractions only a short drive.

The space
The Old Church has a stunning living area with a feature stained glass window, beautiful log burning stove, cozy book reading snug and a tennis table on the mezzanine level.

The spacious dining area features a large bespoke wooden dining table. The dining area also incorporates an original church pew, piano, bar recess and direct access onto a huge covered decking area making this a relaxing and flexible entertaining space.

The large kitchen is well suited to self-catering for groups and there are a number of bespoke locally sourced catering solutions available on request.

Each of the 5 individually designed bedrooms in The Old Church feature bespoke furniture and flat screen TVs. Single beds can be added to two of the double bedrooms in The Old Church, making them triples and taking the total accommodation in The Old Church to 12 guests.

The ground floor of The Old Church is wheelchair friendly with the largest bedroom being on this floor, featuring an ensuite wet room. The dining room, kitchen and a sitting area are also on this level. There is wheelchair access to the decking.

Carrick and Kyle Lodges are set within separate and secluded areas within the grounds of the Old Church, around a one minute walk from the main building, with their own private car parking and entrances. They each accommodate 2 guests with exceptionally comfortable super king beds, ensuite shower rooms, kitchen & seating areas and private covered decks. At Carrick Lodge you can relax in front of the outside wood burning stove, whilst at Kyle Lodge you can soak in the roll top bath with views of open countryside.

Where you’ll be

Minishant, Scotland, United Kingdom

The Old Church and Lodge is in a private and secluded semi-rural area. The village shop and excellent restaurant are less than a five minute walk and it is a short drive to many more restaurants and attractions.

Attractions include Ayr Beach, Ayr Seafront Playpark, Heads of Ayr Farm Park, Rozelle Park, Ayr Equestrian Centre, Pirate Pete’s (indoor soft play), Ayr Race Course, Culzean Castle, Rozelle Park, Troon beach, Whisky Experience Ayrshire, Straiton Monument, Dark Sky Observatory, Croy Shore, Greenan Castle, the Carrick Hills and the beautiful Dumfries House Estate with its classic collection of artwork and furniture and beautiful grounds (including a maze!).

There are many golf courses within a 10-20 minute drive, including the world renowned Turnberry, Royal Troon GC and Old Prestwick.

Brunch at Souters Inn at Kirkoswald is highly recommended or why not try the Coo Shed, which is a converted barn on a local dairy farm only a 5 minutes drive away. Wildings Restaurant in Maidens is great for Lunch and afternoon tea at the 5* Turnberry Hotel is a real treat, with stunning views out over the Ayrshire coast. Both are less than a 25 minutes drive. A visit to the Ayrshire Homecook School to brush up your culinary skills would be a tasty addition to your stay.

We have renovated the Old Church over a number of years taking care to retain many of the original features. We are always looking for new ways to make the Old Church a fantastic venue for guests, the most recent addition being a covered area on the large south facing decking.
