“First class, immaculate and welcoming”
Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Mallard cottage has fantastic views of the Wallace monument and Stirling castle, rural but so close to amenities and places of interest. Wendy is a helpful hostess and offers so many personal touches, newly baked scones and jams, beautiful roses, wine to mention but a few things that make you feel so welcome. I will highly recommend this delightful cottage to colleagues, family and friends, and will be visiting again. Thank you for everything Wendy, we spent a fabulous Xmas.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

What a gem! We wanted for nothing as everything had been thought of. Lots of blankets, a well equipped kitchen with everything you need. The bathroom was absolutely perfect for our little ones with the large bath and the heated tiles were fantastic. The. Beds were so comfortable. I wish I could give this more then 5 stars. Thank you for all your help Wendy and the homemade scones were delicious.

“Marvellous Mallard Cottage”
Reviewed October 29, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Mallard Cottage was a wonderful place to stay for a week. A warm welcome and a cottage equipped and maintained to an excellent standard. It was peaceful and quiet yet so convenient for all our day trips. Impossible to fault - just marvellous.

“Can't get much better than this”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Mallard Cottage is very new and built with high quality materials and fittings, including the kitchen appliances. Wenda, the owner, was a great host, lives a short walk away from the cottage, and a generous welcome package was provided. The bed iwe used was very comfortable with high quality linen. The cottage is literally in the middle of a wheat field and consequently is very quiet, while the views include the Stirling Castle, The William Wallace Memorial and a range of mountains, not to mention a herd of friendly cows. There is a Morrisons supermarket within 5 minutes by car and easy access to the Stirling train station for trips to Edinburgh and Glasgow. The WiFi is very fast and reliable and there is a smart TV in the lounge area (watch Netflix, etc, on the TV). The fridge was under-counter, but there was a separate under-counter freezer, so there was plenty of space.

Enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights in this lovely self catering cottage. Due to an unexpected back problem we were unable to get out and about to see the sites however the cottage was so well stocked with top notch appliances and comforts of home that it was still an amazing get away. The views were enough to make anything better, simply stunning. The cottage and grounds were spotless and full of fresh flowers. The extra fluffy towels were a lovely surprise as we brought our own not knowing. The home made scones provided were delicious some of the best we have had in years. There were so many extras and special touches that made you know the owner Wendy truly wants her guests to feel spoiled and cared for. Wendy was so nice and made us feel very welcome and at ease. She was helpful with out being intrusive and was always just a phone call away if you needed anything. We will definitely be booking again.
