Accommodation description

Oakbank is a traditional cottage which has been beautifully refurbished and decorated to a high standard. The cottage is around 200 years old and now offers contemporary accommodation whilst still retaining many of the original features. The two downstairs bedrooms have the original fireplace recesses and boast exposed stone walls and have a lovely garden outlook. The first floor bedrooms also have some original exposed stone walled and offer fantastic views across the countryside and out to sea. Children can enjoy the loft playroom or snug which has a home cinema system and Wii console. There is also a children’s play area at the front of the house, this is great space for kids to enjoy in the warmer months. The rear garden has a barbecue, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the countryside air. The property is located on the outskirts of Whiting Bay in a quiet countryside setting, yet has views across the Firth of Clyde and towards Holy Isle due to its elevated position. Less than 1 mile from Whiting Bay where amenities include shops, bars, restaurants, a golf club and pretty pebble beach. For keen walkers there are many great walks on the doorstep to explore or guests can simply relax in the peaceful surroundings. Oakbank is a fantastic home for families of all ages to enjoy a self-catering holiday on Arran.

Just returned from a week at Oakbank with my family. We had a wonderful week. Cottage is beautifully presented and very well-equipped. We thought it was excellent value for money and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Love Oakbank and the neighbouring ponies!

Really enjoyable week in this house. Great location just outside (and walkable to) Whiting Bay. Lovely views to the Holy Isle and across the sea to Ayrshire. House is very spacious and a quirky layout inside. All mod cons including all you need for using the kitchen and the wood burner stoves. Would love to come back and all in all highly recommended !

We loved this house. It was well-equipped generally, spacious and lots of extras. Warm and cosy on a cool week. Was great for children and adults alike. We would certainly like to come back and it’s the best property we have stayed in in the UK. One concern was the internal steps, which are part of the quirkiness, between different levels which caused a couple of trips. Particularly the very small step coming from one bedroom. Perhaps the owner may consider a gradual ramp from that sometime. Or marking edges if it didn’t detract too much. The only other slight downside thing was that the cooker in that it was small and slow especially if you are cooking for eight. But still fabulous and thanks so much.

Enjoyed another family holiday at Oakbank, now a firm favourite with all ages! Excellent service from Arran team when boiler failed. House well equipped, except for a cafetiere! Look forward to our next visit.
