Our home is welcoming and comfortable, only 25 miles from Glasgow, it's a great base for tourists and visitors. The great transport links allow for easy access to the local airports and railway network and it's easy to reach all of Scotland from here

The space

Built in the 1880s our house is a great blend of the modern and period design.

There's a very large garden to relax in and if guests are inclined to they can spend the night in our amazing bell tent with a full size double bed. It really is ridiculously relaxing. Just let me know in advance and I'll make sure it's ready.

Back in the house there are 2 double bedrooms on offer which are both tastefully decorated and very comfy. The lounge has a large LCD TV, Apple TV, surround Hi-Fi and a huge selection of music, books and movies. And so you can stay in touch with friends and family there's also wi-fi.

Guest access

The guests will have full access to a shared bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi and full multimedia system.

In the summer we normally eat out on the patio and occasionally do outdoor movies.

Please note, the cost of the room is for either single or double occupancy. If you want 2 rooms then the additional person charge applies.

Interaction with guests

We're here to help and if guests need collecting from either Glasgow or Prestwick airport I can do so for the cost of the fuel and if given notice. I can also be persuaded to cook (for a small contribution to cover the cost of the food) or guests can do their own thing in our well equipped kitchen.

As this is our home we're there when the guests are but will understand if more privacy is required.

If you need anything or have any requirements please let us know and we'll do what we can to help.

Other things to note

The price we charge is for the use of of the room for either one or two people (couples only) sharing. If you wish to use the second room an additional charge of £20 per person will apply.

We offer a basic uncooked breakfast. If you want a cooked breakfast let us know in advance and we'll try and accommodate. We charge a small amount to cover the cost of provisions.

We have a friendly Labrador Retriever called Jasper, so if you're allergic to dogs our home isn't for you. He is great around strangers but not so fond of other dogs.

Gary and Joyce were quite possible the best airbnb hosts we have been lucky enough to stay with. Then went to great efforts to get us a cot for our baby and welcomed us into their home as if we were part of the family. The room was comfortable and peaceful and the house was immaculately clean. Thanks again Joyce and Gary for your great company and generosity.

Gary and Joyce go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome. And let's not forget the very kind labrador Jasper who bonded with us immediately, he is definitely part of the team! Great place to stay.

Gary & Joyce are an extremely hospitable couple and great ambassadors for this part of Scotland. They were very welcoming, and went out of their way for me to help make a successful business trip. I also enjoyed their company. Top marks!

Hi, we're Gary and Joyce, originally from Fife and the Highlands now living in the West. I'm self employed and work within the HoReCa sector, Joycie works hard in a job she loves. We love cooking, music, film and life. Jasper is our black Labrador Retreiver we "inherited" but wouldn't be without now. Our lovely house is a great space to share with guests.
