Fantastic last minute short break

  • 5 of 5

We booked this at short notice for a short break for half term and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were greeted on arrival by Anne (and her beautiful dog Lara!), who showed us into the warm and fresh smelling property. It was much bigger and more modern looking than the photographs portray, but with a great amount of character.

Anne gave us directions for walks, food establishments and instructions on how to operate the stove, heating, etc then left us to explore the wonderful property. Knowing she was next door was reassuring in case there were any problems, but there weren't.

The location was great for walking the dog, accessing the motorways, visiting Stirling, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit Edinburgh or Glasgow on this occasion, but both are a short drive away.

I'd certainly recommend this accommodation and hope to return with our 3 teenagers and border terrier for a longer stay in the future!

Gorgeous cottage

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place to stay with the most cozy kitchen ever. We loved our stay here and really enjoyed the cottage. The decor is gorgeous and the kitchen was my favour room with the warm range type cooker.

It's great for dogs with a beautiful walk nearby. The only negative was the poor internet which meant we had no access unless stood in the garden. However there were loads of books games and dvds so we had plenty to do.

Maison agréable et spacieuse, l'avantage pour les enfants: tout est clos et à proximité d'un grand terrain de foot. Endroit tranquille à proximité de tout, a 5 min à pieds du centre de Bannockburn. A 5 min en voiture de Stirling.

Brilliant in Bannockburn

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ochil Cottage for 13 nights and loved it, clean well maintained and comfortable beds. It is not easy to book accommodation from the other side of the world but can assure future renters of this house we were not disappointed. Anne was a gracious and helpful host. We spent several days at the British Open Golf at St Andrews and hours drive each way albeit very scenic. Took the train to both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Dined at Wetherspoons in Stirling - several times - great meals, Thank you Anne it was nice meeting up with you kind regards
