Location, Location, Location - Alloway
Continuing our blog series focusing on some of our fabulous locations across the country, our hotspot this week is Alloway.
Moving to the south east of Scotland, we’d like to introduce you to the picturesque Ayrshire coast and our new luxury development in the village of Alloway, the birthplace of Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet.
Situated to the south of the village, Doonholm Meadows lies adjacent to Doohnolm Farm and is a wonderful location offering all the benefits of a semi-rural setting.
Nestled between the A77 and the river Doon, just off Doonholm Road, Doonholm Meadows is a collection of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom luxury homes. A tree lined avenue welcomes you to the area which, when complete, will house toddler and children’s play areas as well as path for walkers to enjoy the development.
Alloway is a leafy suburb of Ayr which lies just 2.5 miles north of the town and offers a variety of leisure and recreational facilities.
Nearby Rozelle Park, home to the Ayr Flower Show, is a beautifully maintained open park area with a tea room and plenty of activities throughout the year to keep visitors entertained, and it also offers a tranquil side ideal for walkers to soak up the outdoors.
Sports enthusiasts have the world famous Ayr Racecourse, home to the Scottish Grand National and the Ayr Cup Festivals, which offers a variety of fixtures for all the family to enjoy. With a cricket, hockey and rugby club based in Alloway, there are plenty of opportunities to take up a sport or to spectate and support the local teams.
The catchment school is Alloway Primary School and has the envious accolade of being the school Robert Burns attended when a lad. Outside of the school day, local children have access to a variety of clubs and extra-curricular activities to satisfy the most curious of minds.
For older children, Belmont Academy in Ayr is a thriving state school providing secondary education.
Alloway Library offers a fantastic selection of reference and reading material and hosts a number of community events including weekly Bookbug sessions for toddlers and a monthly book group meeting. A literature legacy that would have made even Rabbie Burns proud.
