The Summer House is a renovated farm cottage at Knockankelly Farm, Whiting Bay.  The farm is situated on the outskirts of Whiting Bay, on the Isle of Arran, above the village and beach, (approx, 1 mile), also overlooking the Holy Isle and the Ayrshire coast.The cottage is well fitted, comfortable and cosy and is open all year round with short breaks* available in the winter season. We have electric central heating for all year round warmth, and the cottage has a fully fitted kitchen with all you need for your stay. Sleeping accommodation is on the first floor and comprises of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom.

The Summer House is licenced by the Local Authority and holds Licence Number NA00545F.

There are plenty of good eating places in Whiting Bay or in nearby Lamlash, or just explore and eat where the fancy takes you!

Come and stay - we have a minimum of 4 night stays in The Summer House in the main season - and see for yourself - the cottage is a warm and comfortable haven after you have spent the day walking the hills, cycling, horse riding, sightseeing or whatever else you want to do - or just come and chill.

*Short Breaks of up to 3 nights are available for 2 or 3 people outside the main Summer and Christmas seasons, good for a mountain biking weekend. Just contact us with your requirements. 

Cyclists, Bikers and Walkers are all welcome, we can assist you with drying wet boots or waterproof gear and we have safe off road parking for bikes and motorbikes. We can also advise you on local mountain bike routes, some of which run right through the Farm, and the conditions you can expect on them. We also have the gear on site for you to clean and sort your bike (or motorbike) ready for the next day!


We are very environmentally aware here at Knockankelly Farm.  The farm is run using natural fertilizers and no pesticides, and because of that, our animals have a much greater variety of natural vegetation to browse and eat.  

This also means that we have masses of wildflowers on the farm, along with plenty of wildlife, including red squirrels, hares, rabbits, owls, buzzards, loads of small birds, including woodpeckers - you will probably hear them before you see them though! also, bats and red deer.  In spring we are also visited by plenty of swallows who set up home in the farm buildings. Swallows eat plenty of midges, so they are very welcome!


We are also in the RSPB Volunteer and Farmer Alliance scheme, which means that our farm has been surveyed by the RSPB and we have a comprehensive list of the birds that live here.
