“Wonderful place to stay and tour the area”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My family and I stayed at Brambles Apartment for 3 nights. We wish we had planned for a longer stay. It is a great location to tour the nearby area, everything we were interested in was an easy drive away. We cooked at home in the very well appointed kitchen every night but gave into temptation one morning and had breakfast downstairs at the Buttercup Cafe, wonderful. The shower was exquisite, hot and with good pressure and the wifi, well I've run out of superlatives. Altogether a throughly enjoyable 5 star stay, thanks.

“A great alternative to staying in an hotel”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Visiting family nearby and was very lucky to find this gem of a place. The apartment on two floors provides excellent accommodation, modern décor with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings throughout.
Una the owner of Brambles was very helpful and was kind enough to pick my cousin and I up from the station at Dunblane.
I hope to visit again later in the year and use Brambles as a base for seeing more of the picturesque Trossachs National Park.

“beautifully presented, homely, peaceful apartment in gorgeous country village”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We were delighted with the apartment, which was extremely comfortable, with lovely furnishings and thoughtful final touches like biscuits and tea bags in the kitchen and books and DVDs on the shelf. Lovely location in the centre of a beautiful village amidst gorgeous countryside. Una was friendly and incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout. We had a brilliant time and would definitely stay here again if back in the area. Highly recommended!

“who could ask for more?”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Brambles apartment was more than we thought possible for such a reasonably priced holiday rental!!! From the moment we booked with the owners contacting us offering ideas on what to do easy to find apartment we were welcomed by owners who'd thoughtfully left milk in fridge and nice biccies too to walk into beautiful large, cosy rooms loved the double room and ensuite what a luxury!! Well equipped kitchen and lovely shower room downstairs. Good local amenties and plenty of tourist info in flat. The owners have really thought of everything a visitor could possibly need .A wonderfully short break was had by all will definitely be staying here again!!!!!

“Excellent accomodation, wished we could have stayed longer.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This was an amazing place. Apartment was well equipped with everything we needed. Furniture and equipment were all of a high standard. Quiet location even though we were on a main road. We all loved the apartment and I could easily have moved in.
Highly recommend for any time of the year as there is lots to do in the surrounding area.

“Nice Apartment Great Location!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were one of the first couples to stay at Brambles Apartment. We spent a lovely few days in Doune. The apartment is immaculately presented and we received a very warm welcome from Una on arrival. A great base to explore the trossachs.
