*Changue House is now closed for business - sorry for any inconvenience*
As you drive through the delightful conservation village of Barr, the scene is set for a very special location for this lovely holiday house. Following the single track road up the valley alongside the river, there is a real sense of peace and solitude. When you reach this beautiful 18th century house, the beautiful woodlands, fine trees, gardens and stunning views are everything you hoped.
Changue House (pronounced 'chang')is a fine Scottish Country House, set in its own mature grounds in a tranquil and secluded location on the edge of Changue Forest, South Ayrshire, Scotland. Close to Turnberry Golf Course. It has been thoughtfully refurbished and is now ready to be let exclusively as a large self-catering holiday house and will comfortably sleep 10 plus 2 in its five spacious bedrooms.
A mile from the picturesque conservation village of Barr, Changue House nestles amidst countryside classified as being an 'area of outstanding beauty'.Changue House itself dates back to the early 1800s and is steeped in history and local folklore. It is said that the Laird of Changue once had a fight with the devil and won. There can still be seen the devils footprints on the hill opposite where the duel took place. The house also sits on a known smugglers route, yet we are still to find hidden treasure!
For the more romantic, it is rumoured that Robert Burns once courted the Laird of Changues’ daughter!
Although set in a very private location, Changue House is only twenty minutes from the famous Turnberry Golf Courses, Hotel and award winning Spa. Royal Troon, Prestwick and many other links and parkland golf courses are all within an hour away.Outside the gardens are lovely with mature trees and wonderful views across the valley to Changue Forest with all its woodland walks. For the more energetic there are Mountain biking trails on your doorstep so you can cycle for 19 miles from the house without ever touching a road or perhaps try some fishing on the nearby River Stinchar (licences available locally).
It is an ideal house to get both sides of the family together or spend some quality time with friends.
Alternatively, Changue House is a superb location if you are looking for a peaceful retreat.
