We spent two nights in the wonderful stone cottage in Cambusbarron (near Stirling) in May 2017 and wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage is a duplex, and Sean, Mairi, and their two children live in the other half. That made communication easy, and they provided helpful suggestions that made our stay more enjoyable. The cottage is roomy, with large common areas, and it was a rare treat to have space to dry our laundry and just relax. It was also nice to be able to sit outside in the lovely garden.
We had a car, and the off-street parking was much appreciated. The cottage is next to a park with a nice playground. The location might not be ideal without a car because there are few pubs or restaurants within easy walking distance. The exception is the Inn at Torbrex, which is a 15-minute walk and has excellent food and ale. Both the pub and the stone cottage are highly recommended. Thanks to Sean and Mairi for a wonderful stay.
Fabulous cottage in great location.Sean and Mairi went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Enough wee shops in the village to accomodate needs and a fabulous local butcher selling great steak pies and local meats.
The place is spacious, very comfortable. Marie and Sean are very friendly and will welcome you nicely indeed. Stirling is an adorable city full of history and nice architecture. The pocket guide of all the walks in the surroundings and in the Trossachs area should become your bible. Within a few km, you'll find yourself into a gorgeous and spectacular nature, easily reachable with children. And the Scotts are so nice people. Not to forget the whiskey tasting, and you'll get some charming and relaxing time there !
My partner and I have just returned from a lovely holiday with our 3 children. The cottage had everything we could have possibly needed and is situated right beside a great play park which the children loved. The owners were so welcoming and obliging. We would thoroughly recommend staying here, and hope to return some day :)
