“Beyond our expectations”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We were fortunate enough to stay at Haverstock for a week. 2 families of 2A/2C
Firstly, excellent location. Walking distance to small Tescos and a larger Tescos only 10 mins drive away.
A 5 - 10 minute drive into Thistle Shopping Centre in Stirling.
55 mins by train to Edinburgh
Easy process to book and access to property was simple.
Secondly, the photos on the Internet do not do the property justice. It was much bigger than the photos lead you to believe and absolutely gorgeous! Period features and quirkiness but totally modernized. Excellent Aga and heating and very well equipped kitchen.
Everything you could possibly want in a holiday home for a week, with lots of instructions on how things worked.
House was very clean, beds and pillows comfy and had free wifi which is handy
A cot and high chair were provided.
The only thing that may be nice to add is a bit of history of the property. Maybe an idea of when it was built, previous owners and some photos?
Would recommend without question and would come back in the future
A visit to Stirling Castle is a must as it is now very interactive for kids and adults alike. Only 10-15 mins away by car
Bannockburn Experience was also excellent and again interactive and informative and maybe 15-20 mins drive from Haverstock.
Thanks for a brilliant week in Bridge of Allen

“Five star self-catering experience, perfect for our family gathering in Scotland”
Reviewed November 15, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This is a gorgeous, large house with loads of period character combined with every modern convenience and comfort we could have wished for. We stayed here for a family get-together - 5 young children and 5 adults. The kids loved the space to explore and play in, as well as enjoying the table-football and the console with loads of games. As there were 10 of us we made use of the sofa bed, which was very comfy and is situated in the huge upstairs drawing room, which in effect acted as a lovely extra bedroom. There is more than ample communal space downstairs anyway. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the wifi worked very well. The booking, etc were all handled extremely professionally, with very comprehensive instructions on how to get to, and access, the property, plus advice on things to do and see in the area. Bridge of Allan high street was only a short walk away with a supermarket and a range of other shops, including an excellent butchers where we picked up fantastic steak pies and lorne sausage. Its location in central Scotland is perfect to explore the country with Glasgow (actually the main destination of this trip) only a 1/2 drive away. We also visited Loch Lomond and enjoyed visits to the local attractions of Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. We highly recommend this property.

“Fabulous house and can't wait to return”
Reviewed October 25, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Haverstock was a fantastic venue for our family celebration. Ages ranged from 3 years to 86 and we all enjoyed the amenities on offer. We tended to congregate in the kitchen/ dining space/ family room and never really got to use the downstairs lounge and dining room or the beautiful lounge upstairs . The place was spotless and had everything we needed . Would love to return in the summer when we could use the outdoor space and open those doors into the garden-maybe next time

“This is a great house for a family gathering.”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Haverstock is a lovely large house, well decorated and very well equipped. good location for Bridge of Allan. Plenty of space for large groups with great living area in kitchen\dining room with the Aga giving constant warmth.
Highly recommended.

“Great Location for a week in Scotland”

We were able to visit all of the sites in Scotland that we had hoped to yet enjoyed returning to this comfortable house each evening. Took the train from Bridge of Allan to Edinburgh and return for an enjoyable break from driving.

“Perfect house for a fun, social weekend”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed at Havestock with friends for a wedding nearby last weekend and wanted to write to say thank you - the property was perfect for socialising, large and beautiful, conveniently located for shops and the station, and we had a lovely time. Kirsteen was incredibly helpful and responsive to all correspondence and we had an excellent weekend. Highly recommended for large groups or famiiles.

“Superb house for three generations”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Fantastic house for a family gathering - lots of space (although there were ten of us we didn't even use the big dining room or huge sitting room). I'm afraid my cooking didn't live up to the potential of the wonderful kitchen facilities ..
