About us

Hey there! I'm Jessica, and together with my family, we operate Ayshire Rural Retreats, a charming beef and sheep farm nestled in East Ayrshire.

Our journey began over five years ago and thanks to your love and support, we've expanded and upgraded our accommodation and now have 6 'pods' for two and two spacious houses for families and friends.

We're hands-on with both the farm and holiday accommodation, so don't hesitate to say hi and ask us anything during your stay.
