The Smithy description

Holiday home
The Smithy is a terraced pet-friendly cottage overlooking the sea in the village of Maidens near Turnberry. The cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms which are a ground floor super king-size double, a double and a children's bunk room. There is also a ground floor bathroom, a kitchen, a sitting room with a dining area and a conservatory. Outside is a lawned garden with furniture and off road parking for one car with additional parking available nearby. The Smithy has everything you need to have a fantastic seaside holiday.

This fishing village sits at the south end of Maidenhead Bay on the Ayrshire coast and looks out to sea with views of Ailsa Craig and the distant Mull of Kintyre. It was here that Robert the Bruce is acknowledged to have come ashore when he sailed from Rathlin Island in Northern Ireland after his encounter with the spider in the early 14th century. The ancient Earls of Carrick had their seat at Turnberry Castle which today is a ruin. Today Maidens is a popular spot for visitors with its traditional harbour, extensive beach, a couple of restaurants and its close proximity to Turnberry and spectacular Culzean Castle.
