Perfect location for a dog friendly holiday in Stirling
The property is really cozy and comfortable and well equipped. We were surprised with fresh stuff from the bakery when we arrived. The cottage is located close to Stirling and in walking distance to the Battle of Bannockburn Memorial. There are many public paths nearby to explore the area and it´s perfect for dog walkies. Mrs. Pollock was very helpful and welcoming. I will surly come back one day.
I stayed here with my husband and 4 children for 5 days. We had such a lovely time. Anne is so welcoming. The cottage has everything you need. Feels like a home from home. The children loved it too. Would totally recommend and I'm sure we'll be back soon 😊😊
thank you for taking the time to write a review so happy you all had a great time
hope to see you back soon
Beautiful cottage. Plenty of room for everyone with 3 bedrooms and 2 living rooms. Parking outside. Warm and cosy, plenty of towels provided, amazing huge bath! Beautiful big kitchen. The dogs next door were lovely, especially our best pal Lara! And horses in the field across. The cottage feels very remote but is walking distance into Bannockburn, so ideal if you want to get away from it all. Only tiny criticism is that the internet isn't the best, but you get decent 4g coverage there anyway. Lovely welcome, would stay here again anytime!
We loved it. Felt like home
A old country house secluded and quiet. We watched bunnies and magpies every morning, walked to town and nibbled on blackberries. There are pets everywhere to keep you company. We loved to read in the front room in the evenings. Thank you Anne
Wonderful hidden treasure - close to so many activities!
This lovely cottage is close to so many things to do in the Stirling/Bannockburn Area. It is also a quick drive to Edinburgh or Glasgow. We spent 9 days exploring from this snug home. Each day when we returned, we felt welcomed and comfortable. Everything we required was supplied and our hostess, Anne, checked in regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Would love to come back and spend time here again!
