More about the venue for Ayrshire Retreats:-
The Old School, Dalleagles, New Cumnock, Ayrshire, KA18 4QW
The Old School Dalleagles is set in a beautiful rural location. It is surrounded on three sides by mature Scots Pine and birch trees, with a paddock for our chickens and geese. As a converted primary school, The Old School is a unique bed & breakfast near Cumnock. The classrooms now provide very large bedrooms, all ensuite, with space which is seldom seen in B&Bs. No expense had been spared in the conversion, with log-burning stoves adding to the atmosphere in the lounge. This is bed & breakfast accommodation at its best!"
If travelling on public transport, there is a local train station at New Cumnock and a bus from there goes straight to the B&B door. Just ask if you need advice. Some guests have come from as far as Bedford by train.
