Angie and Robbie were extremely welcoming and very helpful. When we had a problem with the door, for example, the response was immediate and the issue was solved. It was good to know that such prompt, efficient service was at hand. Both clearly care about the holiday let. We have booked again for next year as we enjoyed the island and the holiday let very much.

Tips:

It is quite expensive to eat out in the local area. Don't underestimate the "walk" up Goat Fell!

Tips:

Lots of good walks if you like this sort of thing. Brodick castle and the distilleries worth seeing. Douglas hotel in Brodick has lovely food and is dog friendly. Best Western hotel in Blackwaterfoot has a beautiful view and the food is excellent.

Beautiful cottage with everything you need for a stay on Arran. Perfectly positioned just a few minutes walk from Brodick centre, you can access shops and cafes/restaurants without driving. The Brodick Bar is just round the corner for a drink/meal and the Post Office a few yards down the hill from there. The views from the cottage are simply stunning with Goat Fell looming large and Brodick bay. Lovely garden and raised decking where you can sit and take it all in. Woodlea is an amazing find and we will be back. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

Tips:

On this occasion visited with my daughter and 7 year old grandson. Highlights were swimming at Auchrannie Spa Resort, Crazy Golf on the sea front and jumping in the sea at Kildonan fully clothed (in February!!) The Drift Inn at Lamlash is our favourite place to eat with superb food and a blazing open fire. Try the Arran Gin - expensive but worth it. We also ate at Cruize restaurant at Auchrannie and had fish and chips from Hooked and Cooked, the chippy at the harbour. Best fish and chips we’ve ever tasted. Closes at 8pm so be warned as we were disappointed the first time we arrived at 8.20!! We had a Chinese takeaway instead which was excellent and also a short walk from the cottage. Walked up to Brodick Castle which is beautiful and has a great Adventure Play Park for the kids but sadly wasn’t open in February much to my grandson’s disappointment. Try Cafe Thyme for a lovely bowl of soup and some lunch/coffee and cake. It’s situated close to Machrie on the North side up the hill next to the Arran sheepskin shop. Wonderful food and tasty Turkish pides which are similar to pizza but better according to the grandson. Another highlight of the trip was pony trekking at Sannox - such a lovely experience and the views over the sea were stunning. Remember to visit Arran Arromatics and the Island Cheese Shop next door, both are a wonderful assault on the senses!! I could wax lyrical forever but I will just say this - visit Arran - you won’t regret it. I’ve been visiting for 20 years, sometimes twice a year, and I never tire of it. It’s my favourite island in Scotland by far. Once you’ve been you will always return.

Lovely comfortable cottage with stunning views of Goatfell. Spotlessly clean and with everything you require for a relaxing break on my favourite Scottish island. Stayed here for a week with my daughter and grandson and we just loved it. So close to all amenities and yet very quiet and peaceful and so cosy and warm. Reasonably priced and loads of space with beautiful garden. All in all a fabulous week with some glorious weather and Woodlea was just perfect for us. I would recommend unreservedly.

Tips:

Try the Drift Inn in Lamlash - we ate there 3 times. It’s only a 3 mile drive - in fact we walked it one day via the back road just up from Woodlea. Superb food and wonderful ambience with cracking open fire. Have an Arran gin prepared their way with grapefruit and rosemary - developed quite a liking for it!! Finished up our stay with their delicious Sunday Roast. Highly recommended.

We had a great time at Woodlea Cottage. It was bright, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and we had no problem cooking most of our meals in the Cottage. It was a great location in Brodick so we could walk to many local sites, stores and hikes. But was also a great base for traveling to other parts of the island. And the view of Goatfell out the back, was the icing on this cake! There had been an issue with the front door, but it didn't really affect us at all, as it was just as easy for us to use the back door. Nevertheless, our hosts had the front door fixed before the end of our stay.

Tips:

If you looking for traditional music check out the sessions in the Ormidale Hotel on Sunday nights, and The Brodick Bar on Tuesday nights.

Great location, superb views, comfortable cottage with all mod cons. This was our third successive year at Woodlea and I'm sure we'll be back.

Tips:

Get up in the hills and remember that there's a lot more than just Goatfell. Use the bus to enable you to start and finish walks at different points. Arm yourself with a timetable - while they're fairly infrequent on some routes they are reliable.

The cottage is beautifully presented in a great location 5 minutes walk from the front. The views are great from the sitting room and kitchen, you can see the bay, the castle and Goatfell. The cottage is spacious and cosy Angela was so welcoming, and her artwork sums up the island with beautiful colours and style. There is one of her pieces in the hall and on the table mats, which was a lovely touch. We highly recommend this cottage and plan to return.

Tips:

There is a walk to Lamlash straight up behind the cottage. You walk back along the track, and then turn left up the main track. It eventually turns into a path through the forestry. we took a detour signed right to a carpark, and then turned right into a beechwood (not signed yet as still in the making) and through an archway into a spiral maze. Great with the kids. The adventure playground is great at Brodick castle, although the castle itself is closed in 2018 but cafe, gardens and play area still open. We also drove over The String and walked up to the Machrie stone circles. This is worth doing as there are half a dozen stone circles on the walk as well as the main event. Go to the Thyme Cafe at The Old Byre visitors centre afterwards in Machrie. Fantastic food and fab play area for the kids as well as amazing views. We also saw an otter and seals a few miles north of Machrie. We saw the otter on a rainy day and the seals on a dry day. Although you can also see seals from a pull in just past entrance to Brodick Castle going North. And of course, visit Angela's gipsy hut in her garden to see her fab artwork. She was great with the kids telling them how she had got into Art.

Stayed for a week in this lovely cottage with fantastic views over the bay and across to Goatfell. Owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. Well laid out. Well equipped.So comfortable.

Tips:

Brodick bar and brasserie at bottom of road food excellent worth paying a bit more for. The fiddlers excellent food and great venue to enjoy local and visiting musicians. Need to book table for 7.30pm to have it for rest of night. Pier Cafe in Lamlash do amazing cakes and scones. Enjoyed many beautiful walks using Walks in Arran book. Walks for all not just the super fit. Lots of shops selling local and original goods in Brodick.

A Fabulous location, right on the doorstep for Brodick main street, where most of the shops, eateries and bars are, a well-equipped bungalow where the owners have considered all needs and requirements. The owners are on hand if needed. The dogs were made welcome too as they were in most of the locations we stopped at on the island. Value for money and I would definitely recommend Woodlea and stay there again myself.

Tips:

The island is beautiful, lovely walks from Sannox to North Sannox, Whiting bay to Kingscross point are petty easy going, a bit more strenuous were Glenashdale falls and Kings Cave. Fiddlers bar is friendly but best to book meals in advance and The Ormidale hotel serves good food in huge quantities! Over at Pirnmill, The Lighthouse is very good and take your own alcohol. Eco savvy, Janelles, Arran Active, Arran Aromatics,ARCAS charity shop all good shops to have a look around and grab bargains and gifts. It has been our 5th visit to Arran and I am sure it won't be our last.

We enjoyed a fantastic holiday on Arran and Woodlea was the perfect place. Wonderful views of Goatfell and ideally located for all amenities. We would love to return.

Tips:

Take a stroll along Brodick Beach to the Wineport near the Arran Distillery, have a wee lunch and back. Also, the Douglas Hotel has fantastic views if you manage a window seat and their fish and chips are not to be missed! Fiddlers is also a great place for a drink and meal. If you head up to Blackwaterfoot then the Kinloch Lodge Hotel does fine beer and food too.

Second time at Woodlea and just as wonderful as ever. Fantastic location in Brodick and a perfect deck at the back of the house for sunbathing, relaxing with a pre-dinner drink or simply soaking in the views to Goatfell and the bay. Very peaceful.

Tips:

Easy access to Brodick as well as walks to the Fairy Glen. Extremely dog friendly island and so many places to walk. Brodick Bar down the hill is very good and right at hand. So many places to visit; places to photograph and walks to enjoy.

Tips:

We arrived at the beginning of the school easter holiday and my son asked if we could do the trip to holy isle, unfortunately there were none. Was a bit disappointed that balmichael visitor centre was also shut but these did not stop us having a lovely holiday. Plenty of walking, glenashdale falls, king's cave and numerous beaches.Kids found a rope swing across the small river close to the start of glenashdale falls walk, even made mum do it, although hubby had to pull me back in! Also did fishing and husband even managed to cycle round the island.

Our first visit to Arran and Woodlea was the perfect base from which to explore the island. The private enclosed garden was a delight, much enjoyed by Ruby our Airedale, and we were able to enjoy breakfast outside a couple of times - amazing for October! The cottage is cosy and very peaceful, with a fabulous view of Goatfell and part of Brodick Bay. We were able to leave the car at home most days, walking from the door in many different directions.

Tips:

We highly recommend Fiddlers in the bay for excellentt meals at any time, including breakfasts. The friendly staff and atmosphere created by live music in the evenings will live on in our holiday memories. We also enjoyed the Brodick Brasserie just down the hill which provides a warm welcome and good food. Shorties is worth a visit for excellent coffees and divine homemade shortbread and the The Wineport is also very good - it's name is a bit confusing as it is essentially a tearoom/brasserie (cosy with open fire, extensive menu and home bakes). The bus service is excellent and a good way to travel round the coastline enjoying the views, stopping off to walk en route and the drivers seem happy to drop passengers off wherever they request. The Fisherman's walk across the bay towards Brodick Castle is delightful and a lovely way to start a walk up Rosa Glen or Goatfell.

Superb location. Easy walking for facilities in Brodick and local attractions. Stunning view from the back of the cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and met all our needs.

Tips:

View from Goat Fell spectacular and well worth the climb. We enjoyed the wild spots like Lochranza and Machrie Moor just as much as the more popular places like Lamlash and Whiting Bay.

Excellent location, gardens and house beautiful. Perfect for small family etc. Everything you could ask for.

Tips:

Excellent location and area with plenty of amenities and places to eat locally. Food five star and locals very friendly. Brodick Castle a must, forest walks were fantastic, restaurants such as Brodick Bar and Douglas Hotel were great for food and service, although never had one bad meal whether in cafe or restaurant.

Lovely tastefully decorated 2 bed roomed cottage with stunning views of Goatfell,mountain range and Brodick Bay from lounge/diner, kitchen and garden terrace.It's quiet location within the heart of Brodick and only short walking distance from beach,shops and a great selection of eating places as well as easy access to all main roads make this a real hidden gem. We Love Arran and next time we come in the not too distant future Glenartney Guest House or Woodlea if available will be our first choice again. We have no hesitation in recommending Woodlea.

Tips:

Brodick Castle and Gardens are a worth a visit. Enjoy a walk in the Lovely Glen Rosa Listen for the cuckoos and watch for the deer on the hills. GlenAshdale Falls Whiting Bay. Walk to Lamlash via the Corriegills drop down on to coast road after enjoying views on the way. Brodick Bar,Ormidale Bar Food, Pier Cafe Lamlash,Machrie Golf club Teashop, Visit Arran Aromatics and Cheese shop located at HomeFarm just out of Brodick on way to Corrie. Lochranza castle is also worth a visit

We had a lovely shorty stay at Woodlea. We will definitely return. The cottage was perfect, so clean and comfortable. We had a few problems with travel disruption due to adverse weather and Angela and Robbie were so accommodating. Thank you!

The owner met us and made us very welcome. When the ferry was delayed due to adverse weather she accommodated us for an extra night. This property was excellent and was very comfortable for us and our 3 dogs. The garden was secure so dogs could be outside as they wished.

Tips:

All the restaurants we tried were very good. I would however recommend Fiddlers in Broddick where you can get a good quality bar meal with live music every night.

We enjoyed our stay at Woodlea Cottage. The very short walk uphill from Main St might be difficult for some but the view from back of the cottage is lovely.Otherwise location is excellent. We were very comfortable. Easy parking. The little black rabbits who visited the garden each day were so cute and entertaining. Angela, in the main house, is lovely and very helpful.Thank you.

Tips:

Brodick Bar Brassarie has excellent food tho the Brassarie appears only to be open from 5.30 and closed all day Sunday...our fav. restaurant but cannot make a booking. Also we enjoyed The Stag Pavilion for dinner, closed Wed. booking essential. Brodick Castle and gardens worth a visit. Arran cheese and Arran ice cream...a must! Lovely walks around the island to shed those extra calories.

We have been coming to Arran for over 50 years and have had many happy holidays there. Woodlea and the service it provides outshines any previous accommodation. Provision for dogs is also a major advantage.

Tips:

Friday night fish and chips at Corrie Golf Club is a must. Arrive before 5pm to be sure of a table-also do take-away

Super week as always. We were delighted to find your 'other life' as an artist Angela. We loved the new table mats and the painting in the hall. We spotted more at Whiting Bay and the Old Pier Cafe. We liked your style very much, and are full of admiration for the amount of paintings and other things you manage to do. We enjoyed exploring your web site, just in passing - the canoeist in the 'Links' section is Keith!! Arran Adventures took it years ago, and put it on their flyer, without asking permission! We think they wanted to show that they catered for all ages!

friendly and helpful

Tips:

The drift Inn in Lamlash has taken on a new lease of life and good for a pub lunch, the walk over gives you an appetite. The walk up Glen Rosa to the Blue pool for picnic with youngsters and maybe a paddle!
