Discover a blissfully secluded country home with a sprawling wrap-around lawn. Sleeping up to 12 humans and three waggy-tailed guests, this rural retreat is ideal for muddy-pawed adventures in the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. Feel the wind in your fur with a blustery scamper along the Victorian promenade at Largs (3.5 miles). Return home to soak in the tranquil open-air Jacuzzi while Fido snuffles out every nook and cranny of the expansive garden.

This elegant home boasts a beautifully designed interior with large light-flooded rooms, plush soft furnishings, and contemporary country home styling throughout. Dry soggy paws in the airy reception hall before sniffing out the grand dining room. Set the mood with a playlist on the Sonos sound system then adorn the long feasting table with a post-adventure spread. Get competitive on the pool table in the fabulous games room or pad through in the glass-panelled sunroom for snuggles with your furry friends. Scoff some late-night nibbles as you sink onto the deep sofas in the lounge. Escape to the snug to sip a glass of wine perched on the furry chairs beneath the stag head feature piece. Resident chefs will delight in whipping up mouthwatering creations in the spacious kitchen with original tile flooring. When the evening draws in, discover six beautifully appointed bedrooms. Lay claim to the opulent super-king-size and enjoy long, bubbly soaks in the elevated, free-standing tub. The remaining five bedrooms each boast designer fabrics and sweeping countryside views. Outdoors, drink in the crisp Ayrshire breeze as you lounge on the outdoor furniture with an al fresco breakfast. Ball throw on the lawn or scope out the exciting children’s play area.

Curious canines can examine the Kelburn Graffiti Castle (5.5 miles) before bounding along the network of leafy wooden trails. Ensure ears are perked with a visit to the thundering falls of Black Craigs (2 miles) or scramble atop rocks lining the rugged shoreline of Wemyss Bay (9.5 miles).
