Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Val





The trip went really smooth. We only had one que of 30 minutes at Birmingham.





We all want to return to scotland, because we had a beautiful trip in a lovely house. Everyone keeps posting on Facebook, I want to return to the house in stirling.





About the chocolates, your welcome...





The weather was not disappointing at all. It's scotland, so we expected worse. And mostly, it rained at night when we where at your house again.





We really had a good trip, and thank you we could stay in that house. I hope you trust the belgian youth a bit more now.





Kind regards

Vacation at Old Bankend Farm.

  • 5 of 5
8 of us, adults from Vancouver British Columbia spent a week at the farm during our U.K. vacation and were glad that we did, trust me this place has it all, old world charm combined with all mod cons idealy situated for exploring the highlands, conveniently located for major cities and tourist attractions,of which there are plenty,something for every one ,and at the same time is an ideal place if all you wan;t to do is relax, walk about the farm and just let the world pass you by for a few days.Val the owner is close by and is full of helpful information and she is not in your face like some owners can be.If you are planning a vacation in Scotland give the farmhouse a whirl you wont regret it.

Excellent, would definitely return!

  • 5 of 5
Very spacious and luxurious cottage with excellent facilities.
The owner was very helpful.

This would suit a large family or a group of friends wanting to get away.
It is a short drive away to Stirling (or walk if it takes your fancy however this takes you down the side of a busy main road) and in a great location.

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Thanks!

July visit with 3-generation extended family

  • 5 of 5
Our 3-generation extended family of 8 spent a week at Bankend Farmhouse in July. The house was large, clean, and comfortable, and well furnished. We especially appreciated the kitchen and large dining table for the family to linger over dinner.

The location was a great base to explore around Scotland. The setting was beautiful - the view outside the window was horses and Stirling Castle. The kids and even the teenagers loved walking around the farm.

Val was very helpful with information and directions, etc.
