Formerly the staff quarters, The Bell Loft has been sympathetically and totally refurbished to provide a luxury self catering holiday home. On the first floor of Noddsdale House, it has its own private door and staircase.
The two bedrooms can either be super-kings or single beds – big and comfy for a good night’s sleep, with at least 250 thread count 100% cotton bedlinen and beautifully hand embroidered pillowcases. Pillows and duvets are 100% British Wool from The Wool Room, traceable back to the farm they came from, allergy friendly and wonderfully comforting – warm in winter and cool in summer – bliss! The curtains are interlined as well, so keep you extra cosy in winter. Each bedroom has a bathroom across the passage. The master bedroom has the larger bathroom with a separate shower. The other has a shower over the bath. Flooring is allergy friendly and there are plenty of sumptuous towels.
The comfortable Living/Dining/Kitchen area come together to create a delightful space with an open fire. There is a flat screen freeview tv, with cd player, dvd and Bluetooth radio, Wifi, chairs and sofa-bed, a reclaimed pine dining table (extends to seat up to 8, if combining with East Wing) a small library of books, games, cards, dvds and cds.
The kitchen is rather fun with a Belfast sink, a Zodiac Quartz worktop and every utensil a cook could need including a nespresso coffee machine and some supplies to get you started.
Central heating throughout is electric. There is a shared laundry room under the East Wing with a washing machine, tumble drier, and pulleys. There is also a washing line on the drying green to catch the Ayrshire breeze if you would prefer not to use the drier! There is room for storing bikes in the laundry if required. There are garden benches for relaxing/reading in different shared areas of the grounds.
A wonderful weekend in Largs
By Janice on 22-Jan-2018
We stay at the Bell Loft regularly and regard it as our home from home in Scotland. The setting is ideal and the property just perfect. We would highly recommend.
Wonderful place to stay
By Michael on 22-Jan-2018
We found the Bell Loft to be the finest self catering accomodation that we have stayed at. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and nothing was too much trouble for them to help us. The location is superb in a private estate with views across the Clyde to Great Cumbrae and Arran. The facilities were excellent - even a tennis court if you were a player - and the grounds of the house were beautiful and secluded. The house is very attractive in design with many unique small details that a good Architect would employ. We were sorry to leave, but all good things must come to an end!
Another lovely week-end in the Bell Loft
By Cheryl on 22-Jan-2018
I can't say enough nice things about this apartment-we have stayed a number of times and have never had any problems at all. The family is warm and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. It is so peaceful,comfortable and well equipped - nothing is left to chance. The shortbread provided by Jane is a lovely touch - we always look forward to it whilst on the M8 ( and before!) Thank you for yet another enjoyable break
We will be back!
By Lynsey on 22-Jan-2018
A brilliant place! Brilliant customer service and spotlessly clean! It has everything you could ever think of at your disposal! We can't wait to find an excuse to go back!
Great location - lovely property.
By Karen on 22-Jan-2018
The Bell Loft was comfortable and welcoming, in a great location with easy access to beautiful walks and adventures further afield. Would definitely recommend it!
Wonderful period home in breathtaking landscape
By Anton on 22-Jan-2018
Noddsdale Estate is perfectly located just outside of the busy town of Largs (weekends) and commands a wonderful view over the neighbouring island. The house itself is embedded in a carefully maintained garden and even offers a tennis court. The Loft itself is spotless, everything appears to be new and is in perfect working condition. It is also fully equipped, including plenty of firewood. We enjoyed the walks on the estate behind the house and the excursions to Dean Castel, Culzean Castle, Arran Island and Brodick Castle - all within easy reach of Noddsdale. A memorable stay in Scotland that we hope soon to repeat !
Superb in every way
By Gavia on 22-Jan-2018
A luxury home from home. Stunning location. Extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished & equipped. We wanted for nothing! Flowers & home made shortbread to welcome our arrival were the icing on the cake!
Second time around
By Poshjock on 22-Jan-2018
Even better second time. Just love this place and the wonderful warm welcome received. Perfect home from home, has everything you need and more - best stocked cupboards I have come across, will definitely return.
A wonderful home away from home.
By Thedroths on 22-Jan-2018
Our stay in the Bell loft at NODDSDALE ESTATE was simply WONDERFUL. Everything was perfect. The facilities were excellent. The hosts were helpful in every way and were a pleasure to deal with. We make the highest possible recommendation and encourage the reader to look no further - this is indeed a "wonderful home away from home".
Noddsdale Estate stay
By Steve on 22-Jan-2018
Jane and her parents were most welcoming .The house is in a stunning location and sitting out in the gardens until late in the evening was very relaxing , with wonderful views over Largs and out to the Islands. Everything was perfect and very well presented . Our son left something behind , and Jane very kindly emailed us and posted the item back to us. Nothing was too much trouble. I am sure we will be staying there again sometime in the future, and would highly recommended this property to anyone planning to visit the area. Steve , Liz and family Lincoln
Amazing accommodation - faultless
By Clare on 22-Jan-2018
We were in Scotland for a sailing competition. The location and the accommodation were absolutely amazing - faultless. We were made to feel incredibly welcome. Highly recommended
By Graham on 22-Jan-2018
The accommodation at the Bell Loft is excellent and I would recommend it to others. Great location close to town whilst still being in the country/glen. Great facilities for a family or those looking for some peace and quiet whilst retaining the ability to go into Largs for any necessities.
By Pam on 22-Jan-2018
We thorough enjoyed our stay. Very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend this apartment for a base for touring. The owner was very helpful with arrangements.
Christmas in the Bell Loft
By Smiths on 22-Jan-2018
Our second stay in the Bell Loft - it is a gem! The property is well equipped and comfortable the log fire makes the place so cosy. Scenery is stunning - Largs itself sits right on the Clyde and makes a perfect base to explore other areas. Jane, Chris and Jane's parents are just delightful people, really welcoming and friendly. We spend a lovely Christmas there, Jane had added some festive touches - so thoughtful and unexpected. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely apartment to others.
Springtime is beautiful
By Patricia on 22-Jan-2018
Cool but qiuite dry, green hills, daffodils, hyacinth, and spectacular views up the hill at the back of the house. Most complete kitchen I've come across in self catering. A wonderful stay!
By Catherine on 22-Jan-2018
Our 3rd visit to the Bell Loft- and as enjoyable as ever - lovely welcome - with superb accommodation - ideal surroundings for a relaxing break -
Try to keep this one a secret if you can.
By Sue on 22-Jan-2018
Our family met here for 2 nights in August to eat, walk and talk. The Bell Loft was the perfect location. The setting is stunning with views across to the Islands and the Loft so comfortable. Comfy beds, beautifully equipped kitchen with everything we would need and a cosy fire to curl up to as the rain fell outside in the evening. We were welcomed so warmly and the living room was perfumed with Phlox fresh from the garden. Thank-you! We would certainly recommend staying here although we would like to keep it to ourselves....
A return visit
By Christine on 22-Jan-2018
Wonderful location, quiet and peaceful, with a very warm welcome from the family. Hope to return soon.
Lovely place to stay and we were very well looked after
By Iain on 22-Jan-2018
We booked Noddsdale Estate on the weekend of our wedding, for some family to stay and use as a "Groom Base" on the morning of the wedding. Everything was splendid - Jane was very helpful and accommodating by email from the moment we made the booking. Her mother Elspeth looked after us when we arrived on Friday evening and made sure we were happy. Thanks so much - would definitely stay here again!
