Welcome to Cosses Country House

Cosses Country House is currently no longer trading (traded as pre-eminent home hospitality (dinner B&B) for 28 years from 1990 to August 2018). Self catering at Burnside is still available.

Relax away from it all in this unique country residence and experiencing luxurious accommodation. Explore the wonderful grounds on the banks of Crailoch Burn, a tributary of the River Stinchar, 2 miles inland from the coastal fishing village of Ballantrae. Birds, wildlife, trees and flowers abound in the woodland, pond, river, garden and coastal walks for you to enjoy.

Close to the sea, on the border of Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway, in an area which is part of the UNESCO Biosphere and Dark Sy Park, Cosses Country House is the perfect location to explore the whole of South West Scotland. Views of the Mull of Kintyre, Ireland, Arran and Ailsa Craig form a spectacular backdrop. Take a tour of Cosses through the seasons
