BEAUTIFUL OLD FARMHOUSE IN SCOTLAND

Stirling & Falkirk area Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farm house, sleeps 11 within 9 acres of own land.

In the heart of Scotland, this rural retreat provides a perfect location for exploring central Scotland, the Trossachs and beyond. Windy-Yett Farm was a prestigious dairy farm between the 1600 and 1800s. Now the period farmhouse provides beautiful self-catering holiday accommodation. Windy-Yett is set in 9 acres of rolling fields with its own private lochan (small loch). Wild geese, herons, ducks, toads, badgers, deer, owls, and swallows all frequent Windy-Yett farm regularly. For outdoor fun, croquet, swing ball, and barbecue facilities are all available. The games barn also houses bar-football, table tennis and darts. Wireless broadband internet, wide screen television and x-box all provided for inside entertainment.

The surrounding area provides many opportunities for walking and cycling. Scenic forest, country, canal, river walks and cycle paths can all be found within a few miles, some starting at the local village.

Windy-Yett Farm dates from the 1600s. Now the historic farmhouse, original stone outbuildings, and surrounding landscape and lochan provide a beautiful self-catering holiday location in the heart of Scotland.

Inside the farmhouse is crammed with period features - exposed stone walls, fireplaces, wooden beams, cornicing, original staircase etc. The main house is on 2 levels. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and 1 triple bedroom. The public rooms and bunk room are downstairs. An extra double sofa bed is found downstairs in the 2nd sitting room / music room. The main sitting room forms the heart of the house with exposed stone walls, wooden ceiling beams, a wood burning stove and patio doors onto the garden. A cosy second sitting room/play room/games room gives additional public space or can function as an extra bedroom. The large luxury dining kitchen has been recently renovated with beautiful custom slate flooring and granite worktops.

It houses an electric oven/hob and integrated microwave, an oil fired Raeburn cooker and integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer. A separate dining room with oak table and leather chairs provides an alternative more formal dining setting.

Outside, Windy-Yett is set in 9 acres of rolling landscape with its own private lochan. Wild geese (including rare Bean geese), herons, ducks, toads, badgers, deer, owls, and swallows all frequent Windy Yett farm regularly.

Fantastic country getaway for all the family

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Windy Yett for a weekend family break and loved every minute of it. The weather wasn't the greatest but the spaciousness of the house meant that this didn't matter and we split our time between the fantastic games barn, the massive and well-stocked kitchen, the pool table and the big screen equipped living room. Quirky, fun and well-located for exploring the nearby surroundings - we'd highly recommend it!

Wonderful welcoming house

  • 5 of 5
A lovely warm and very special house. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped. We had a great weekend celebrating my birthday with lots of friends. The Christmas tree and decorations were a lovely welcoming touch. The pool table was particularly popular!
