Haverstock was a superb venue for a family get-together for Christmas. It was beautifully decorated with 2 Christmas trees, one in the main lounge and 1 in the dining room. The rooms were large and the house was lovely and warm. The kitchen is really well equipped and perfect for self-catering and for cooking the special Christmas meal. It was very clean. Wonderful! We're already making plans to return.

Very well appointed, warm , comfortable house in a great location. Very clean and well laid out house, we loved the kitchen! Great value for money too. Would recommend to families and large parties.
Stayed here to celebrate joint 50th birthday as a group of 8 friends/family in November. The house was perfect for our group and we had a brilliant time here. House has real wow factor as soon as you enter the large hall. There is a large modern kitchen and dining area leading straight through to TV/games room with comfy sofas and chairs where we spent most of our time. The house has so much space and was lovely and warm. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Large bathroom with walk in shower upstairs as well as shower room/toilet downstairs and further separate toilet. There is a lovely large lounge on upper floor as well as a formal dining room on ground floor and another TV room with log burner. The house was very easy to book and communication was excellent and although a security deposit is required, this was refunded promptly at the end of our stay. The house is a short 10min walk from the centre of Bridge of Allan which has some nice shops worth a browse as well as some great places to enjoy a drink and/or meal. I would highly recommend Jam Jar restaurant! Bridge of Allan is also a great base from which to tour. I would highly recommend this property.
Our stay at Haverstock was perfect! From the original booking to check-out day - we could not have asked for better service. The staff at Stirling Self Catering were great! We were a party of 6 and were all very impressed with the sheer size of the property and how well looked after it is. We wish we could have stayed longer - Highly recommend!
A beautiful extended Victorian building with 4 bedrooms and a pull-out sofa for the kids. We used the house for a family get together for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. There were 8 adults and two children (aged 8 & 10) and at no time did we feel we were tripping over each other.
The bedrooms are large and the beds very comfortable.
Two shower rooms and plenty of hot water ensured there were no queues in the morning.
The Haverstock is located a couple of hundred yards from the center of Bridge of Allan, with boutique shops, nice restaurants and a micro brewery. Less than 10 minutes drive away there are the Wallace monument and the center of Stirling, with larger shops, and for tourists the old Victorian jail and the castle.
Overall it was a fantastic long weekend in a beautiful house in a wonderful part of the country.
Fantastic home for a large group. Great central location. Walking distance to downtown Bridge of Allan. Short drive to Stirling. I would recommend without hesitation.
