Persimmon Homes


The pretty market town of Stewarton grew up around the fabric industry and was famous for its hats, earning it the moniker “the bonnet toun”. While the milliners may be consigned to history, the great road links to this prosperous town remain, making Stewarton a great place for modern day commuting. Your new home town has a great community spirit and every year still celebrates its rich history with an annual festival organised by the “Bonnet Guild”.

A dry town up until a century ago, your new home in Stewarton now has the hospitality of two pubs and a gastro pub with fine dining and a roaring fire. There are supermarkets, a convenience store, vets, chemists – there’s both primary and secondary schools – and even a leisure centre. Everything you need is close to your new house in Stewarton, but if you need more, Glasgow, Kilmarnock and Irvine are an easy drive away.

Living in Stewarton

A day out from your new house

The Galleon Centre in Kilmarnock just five miles south, is great for ice skating, swimming, bowling, and a Family Fun Night every Saturday. If you prefer to get out into the fresh air for a local walk, the Dean Castle Country Park and Lainshaw Woods & the Annick Water – a five-mile circular route along the river – are close by. While you may have amazing countryside around your new home in Stewarton, sometimes you just want to head for the beach and Ayrshire has gorgeous seaside towns in (buckets and) spades!

Schools near your new build

Whatever age your children are, they’ll have a good start in life from your new home in Stewarton. There are three schools in the town including Lainshaw and Nether Robertland Primary Schools, and the Stewarton Academy is the secondary school.

Easy travels across Ayrshire

The M77 bypasses your new home in Stewarton just over three miles away - close enough to be handy, but far enough away not to impact the town. As Stewarton used to be a crossroads of trading routes, so Stewarton benefits from main roads running east to west from the coast to the M77, and northeast to southwest between Glasgow and Kilmarnock. From your new home in Stewarton, you can drive to central Glasgow in about 45 minutes, or you can take the train from Stewarton Station and be at Glasgow central in just 30 minutes. Kilmarnock is only five miles to the south for additional amenities, and Irvine – on the coast – is 10 miles to the west.
