“Wonderful cottage very relaxing”
Reviewed May 16, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Thank you Bruce & Dorothy for a lovely stay. We received a very warm welcome from our hosts. The cottage was lovely, very well equipped, very well kept and a lovely quiet location, but very well placed. Super walks from the property which was great as we had our dog with us. Would not hesitate to recommend the cottage.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed April 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is a five star self catering cottage. Great hosts, fabulous accommodation, good location. Loved loved loved it!
Would I stay again? Of course I would, it's a no brainer.
Great if you have a dog, although local hostelries are not so dog-friendly. No matter, the a comodation is so well equipped that eating in is no problem.

“Explore Central Scotland from this gorgeous cottage”
Reviewed November 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Not on holiday but was escaping workmen and decorators after moving house. This cottage was just perfect for me and my little old cat who loved it there too. Under floor heating and constant hot water. The owners Bruce and Dorothy live nearby and were charming and helpful when needed. Parking is safe and off road and for a tourist visiting central Scotland, this is an ideal place for a single person or 2 people. You have a well equipped kitchen and a comfy lounge facing the gardens. Lovely shower room and an additional loo in the hallway. I stayed here twice in October and after my first visit I could not wait to return to the peace and tranquillity that this delightful cottage provided me. Should further workmen ever darken my door, I would be delighted to return for a 3rd visit. Highly recommended to tourists who do not want to stay in the city centre and want to explore central Scotland and if you too are local and have workmen in, then abandon ship and stay here.
