Riverview Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Riverview is a ground floor apartment in a traditional, terraced property overlooking the esplanade and estuary in the Ayrshire town of Irvine. With one double bedroom and a sofabed in the kitchen as well as a family shower room, this cottage can sleep up to four people. The fitted kitchen is well equipped and has a dining table, whilst the sitting room has an electric fire and looks out onto the esplanade. Outside the cottage is a small shared rear garden with furniture and a BBQ. Being so centrally located in the town of Irvine, Riverview is an ideal holiday home for those who don't want to have to travel to find life's little luxuries.

Irvine is the largest settlement on the north Ayrshire coast. There is a harbourside walk, which takes in various features including an old crane, which highlights Irvine's former industrial heritage. There are coffee shops along the harbourside, a good local pub - The Ship Inn, a Maritime Museum, and the town also has a leisure centre with ice skating, indoor bowls, swimming pool and fitness facilities. Further afield in Ayrshire visitors can enjoy the history of Dundonald and Culzean Castles, play a round of golf at one of the many good courses in the area, or spend the day at one of the lovely beaches. The town of Ayr lies 12 miles further south along the coast and offers fine beaches and an esplanade. There are also good opportunities for hill walking and cycling.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Gas central heating with electric fire in sitting room. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, tumble dryer, flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/radio. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair on request. Roadside parking generally available for 2 cars in front of the property. Small shared rear garden with furniture and BBQ. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop, pub and railway station 5 mins walk.

We loved the view from the window, and that the cottage is close to the town. A very helpful and friendly key holder.

The harbour was right in front of the property. It was beautiful to look out and see the amazing sunsets.

Great base for a holiday exploring surrounding area and watching the Commonwealth games. Clean and spacious and very well kept.

The location was excellent. A lovely flat which was larger than expected, the high ceilings were beautiful. The bathroom was great - the shower was consistently hot, not interrupted by other water usage and the pressure was perfect.

Back at Riverview for the third year in a row. Had stunning views and an ideal location close to town, shops and the train station, not forgetting the marvellous Ship Inn. It has everything we could want, and more. Roll on next year for another visit.

In an ideal location for travelling around Ayrshire with a train station nearby. In easy walking distance to shopping, eating and drinking facilities. A comfortable, well maintained property with everything you need for a short or long stay. Have already recommended to friends and family.

This was our second stay at Riverview, it was every bit as enjoyable as our first time there. Clean, comfortable and in a great location, would happily stay again.
Ms Pandelus
July 2014
This is our second visit to Riverview as we have family in Irvine it is a perfect base for us to visit them and still have our own space. The views are spectacular and you are close to the shopping mall in one direction and the beach in the other. The fact that I have booked again for October says it all !!
Mr Dawson

Would love to go again! Great location for touring, especially for the Isle of Arran, Cumbrae etc. Nice beach in Irvine for children.
Mr Chapman
August 2014
Lovely location and we felt very much at home in this lovely spacious apartment. Everything we needed was provided in the property and very convenient for local shops and the train station to catch trains into Glasgow.
Ms Bramham
April 2013
The property was very well maintained and had everything that we required during our stay. Coming from Australia the heating was very important as the weather was still quite chilly. It was very easy to use and worked well keeping us warm when needed.

This is truly a gem and well worth every penny.
Ms Phillpotts

The accommodation was perfect. It had everything we would have expected and many many things we didn't. An absolutely gorgeous place to stay.
Mr Holmes
June 2013
We arrived after a rainy, dismal journey. The place was warm and cosy and immaculate. Very reassuring. The place is stylish and imposing. All the essentials were top-notch.
Mrs Walmsley
July 2012
Excellent comfortable property overlooking river estuary and sunsets over the Isle of Arran. Easy walking distance to railway station, shopping centre, Maritime Museum and beach. The feel of a village location with the facilities of a large town just out of sight.
Mr Towell
September 2011
The area was very good with lovely views of the estuary and surroundings. The shopping precinct was near enough to be handy but not intrusive. Transport was also handy and good value for money. All in all it was a very enjoyable holiday.
Miss Pattison
July 2011
Spotlessly clean and comfortable accommodation. Lovely views onto the river from front rooms. Great location for road and rail links. Good local shopping for self catering.
Mr Scott
November 2010
Very, very convenient for shops and transport. Spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was there, especially in the kitchen.

Mr Thomas

This is an excellent flat that was clean, spacious and very well appointed and decorated. The views onto the estuary and mountains were superb. It is well positioned for eating, leisure, beach and shopping locations.
Mrs Hamilton

Lovely view from the flat and good location for everything - pubs, swimming, railway station and mall.

Had a lovely garden area and was just as described. Great view when you walk out and see harbour. Cozy and great if you want to pack light since it has washer and dryer. Would like to say dont paralell park (is legal to though) and park across the way since our rental car was hit within first hour of paralell parking there. Still gem with many great sites in and around Irvine.
August 2014
This was such excellent value for money and so much nicer and roomier than we had expected.Spotlessly clean, nice decor etc. Local amenities were within easy reach, shops, restaurants etc. Nice view of the river.

what an amazing apartment, right on the harbour front in Irvine. it had everything you need for a comfortable stay. the only problem i had was the bed. at 4ft 6in it was too small. i am used to a king size bed. especially in summer when it is hot. apart from that i would definitely stay here again
