Rosedene is situated in the pleasant rolling countryside of North Ayrshire on the fringe of
the pretty hamlet of Gateside.
Gateside is a delightful and popular hamlet with an excellent primary school of some repute, a village hall and a popular and friendly country pub.
Rosedene enjoys all associated with peaceful rural and village life and yet remains extremely well placed for a daily commute to Glasgow.
Beith town centre is about 1 mile to the west and it is part pedestrianised. Together with a midi sized Co-op supermarket, there is a good range of local shops and services which easily cater for every day needs and requirements. There is a medical surgery, chemists and local firms of solicitors and other professional services.
Beith has local nursery schools as well as a primary school and local secondary schools. Glasgow has numerous independent schools and St Columba's in Kilmacolm (9 miles) has an independent day school for girls and boys with a pick-up point in Beith (between 3 18 years www.st-columbas.org).
Further and more extensive shopping facilities are available at the Phoenix centre and at the Braehead retail village which has Sainsbury and M&S anchor stores.

An express bus service runs from Beith to Glasgow and a regular bus service operates from Beith, via Gateside to Kilmarnock. Nearby Glengarnock and Lochwinnoch railway stations offer a regular service to and from the city.
The A737 provides good access to the M8 motorway corridor and Glasgow city, (amazingly, some 20 miles away, only 1 set of traffic lights at the Bothwell Street off ramp before entering the city), as well as easy access to the ever-developing Ayrshire coastline. The closest main line railway stations are at Glengarnock (3.1 miles) and
Lochwinnoch (3.5 miles). The international airports of Glasgow and Prestwick are 11.5 and 19.5 miles respectively.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Beith has a 9-hole golf course and the rivers of Ayrshire offer salmon fishing by permit. The Garnock water has a back end run of salmon. The district also offers some commercially run and challenging low ground driven pheasant shooting and with
permission some of the local estates and land owners allow the chance to stalk roe deer.
Sea fishing sport is available on the Ayrshire coastline. There are marina, yachting and chandlery services at Troon, Largs and Inverkip. Inland sailing and paddle sports are available at the Clyde and Muirshiel Regional Park at nearby Lochwinnoch.
