St John’s Cottage is an elegant Category A listed pavilion style house built in the early 19th century and based on a design for a “modern cottage” in Richard Elsam’s ‘Essay on Rural Architecture 1803’ (link to the book It is privately situated within mature garden grounds on the fringes of the South Ayrshire town of Maybole. It is conveniently located for ease of access to the A77 to Ayr (8½ miles) and Glasgow (45 miles). There are excellent transport links with a regular train service from Maybole Railway Station and Glasgow Prestwick Airport is 15 miles distant offering regular scheduled international flights. There is a swimming pool and several primary schools and a secondary school in the town along with small supermarkets and shops. With plans underway for the much anticipated Maybole bypass the town has been granted a substantial regeneration fund for the town centre.


Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including the world famous facilities at Turnberry and Royal Troon. The popular racecourse in Ayr is host to the Scottish Grand National and there are exceptional yachting facilities at the Marinas in Troon, Largs and Inverkip. There are many opportunities for game sports in the region with some of South West Scotland’s best salmon and trout fishing available in the area’s lochs and rivers. Alloway, south of Ayr, is famous as the birthplace of Robert Burns and Maybole has many historic links to the Scottish baird.

Culzean Castle & Country Park (5½ miles) is home to the cliff-top castle, woodland walks, swan lake, play parks, gift and coffee shop.
