Beautiful small estate with magnificent Arts & Crafts mansion built by the renowned architect James Miller

Location

Blanefield House is situated in one of the most enchanting and secluded positions within the renowned countryside of South Ayrshire. The house is surrounded by extensive policies which include expansive landscaped gardens with two ornamental ponds, extensive grazing and woodland.

Blanefield House is close to the heart of Burns' country with the most tangible reminder of Burns in the nearby village of Kirkoswald. Soutar Johnnie's Cottage has been restored and is now in the care of the National Trust of Scotland. This picturesque village dates back to 1244 and was built by monks who, at the same time, founded Crossraguel Abbey, 2 miles to the north east. Near Blanefield is the world famous Turnberry Hotel and Golf Courses. The Turnberry Hotel, built by James Miller, was opened in 1906 as the world’s first golf resort and established itself as one of the world’s premier destinations for golf.

Ayr is Ayrshire’s foremost town and offers a good range of high street shops, supermarkets, recreational and professional facilities and a number of well known restaurants. There is excellent private schooling at Wellington School for children from the age of 3 – 18.

The Ayrshire coast is famous worldwide for golf with championship courses at Turnberry (the venue for the British Open in 2009), Royal Troon and Prestwick Old (the original home of the British Open). There is also excellent sailing with yachting marinas at Troon and further up the coast at Largs and Inverkip. South Ayrshire is also noted for its field sports including pheasant, partridge and game and grouse shooting and there is first class shooting on nearby estates.

Prestwick Airport is just to the north of Ayr and has services to London Stansted and many European destinations whilst Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports provide a wider range of domestic, European and international flights.
