Elsay May Lodges

Welcome to the Ayrshire countryside where you can relax in the warmth of a cosy, rustic lodge with panoramic sea views.

Experience a variety of wildlife in a truly unique outdoor setting from your own private garden.

Welcome to Elsay May Lodges “where dreams really do come true”.

Four lodges are available, each lodge sleeps 2 adults. Adults over 25 only.

Pheasant Cottage, Pine Cone Lodge, The Glen and The Burrow

One is a specially fitted accessible lodge.

The lodges are individually themed and beautifully furnished.

Each lodge has a kitchen equipped with sink, fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster – all you need to cook or just prepare snacks. Fresh milk, coffee, tea and sugar are provided. The farmhouse kitchen is a hive of activity producing fresh food on a daily basis, including breakfasts and two-course meals. Orders will be delivered to the door of your lodge at the requested time, always respecting social distancing.

The shower rooms have all you need with toilet, shower, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. Soft, fluffy bath and hand towels, shower gel, soap and shampoo are all provided. The shower and towel rail are heated by LPG gas. There is also a small radiator in the main lodge area to provide all round heat if the stove is not in use. High up in the pointed ceilings hang grand rustic chandeliers.  Cosy up on those long dark nights, in front of the little Hygge woodburning stove, and enjoy your favourite tipple or a hot drink from the stove kettle as the flames flicker.

Your private garden is secured by rustic post and rail fencing and native hedging to help encourage a natural habitat for a variety of wildlife. All four lodges have Japanese-style Ofuro hot tubs in their adjoining private rustic gazebos. The hot tubs have external wood fired heaters, fuelled with logs, so you can relax after bathing and watch the sun set while the flames flicker on.

Here at Elsay May all of our lodges are dog friendly. A little welcome pack awaits your four-legged friends and a cosy dog bed with fleece quilt. Each lodge is completely self-contained with its own secure garden.
