Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Castleview over New Year and it was a great house for a large group. The location was close to transport, shops, bars and restaurants not to mention the spectacular view of Stirling Castle. The house was clean, spacious and nice and warm on the cold winter days. I would definitely recommend this house for a holiday in Stirling.

A birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, very roomy but very cosy, everything worked well and we had a great time celebrating my husbands birthday, it was very near the town centre, although you would not have known as it was very peaceful and had a great out look.

Fabulous house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights with extended family to celebrate a big birthday, and couldn't recommend this house highly enough. Fabulous inside and out, amazing features, clean warm and spacious. The location was excellent, views of the castle and only a short walk into town, also very near Stirling golf course. Hope to stay again!

Dejligt hus

  • 3 of 5

Vi var 10 voksne og 1 barn, på efterårsferie i dette skønne hus.

Huset levede op til beskrivelsen og fungerede rigtig godt til så mange mennesker, stort og rummeligt.

Køkkenet bære præ af at huset bliver lejet meget ud, kølerskab og opvaskemaskine trænger til enten, at blive efterset eller udskiftet.

Poolebordet er stort og selve rummet virker rigtig godt, dog var stoffet revnet da vi overtog huset.

A lovely, comfortable, rambling house enjoyed by all.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family of 11 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castelview, even though it was only for a couple of nights. Toby showed us around and was very patient with the excited family exploring. It was a little taste of luxury from a bygone era but with all the expected modern day comforts laid on. The house seemed to go on and on and the children loved exploring the nooks, crannies, and passages hither and yon; they spent quite a bit of time in the fine games room. The garden was a delight with expansive lawn and fruiting trees. I can see this being very suitable for extended families where the cost can be divided. The children have asked to come again for an extended visit, so we shall need to start saving up!
