We had a wonderful holiday at Templelea Farm Cottage. Everything about this property is fantastic. Spotlessly clean, beautiful furnishings, comfy beds and lovely bed linen, every kitchen utensil you could possibly need. The view from the lounge is stunning and the garden is well maintained.

The cottage is easy to find, it is positioned just as the site says. On arrival we were greeted and shown round by Jeanette. The cottage is perfect, it has everything you can think of in the kitchen, there is plenty of room round the dining table. In the lounge, plenty of room and loads of seating. The bedrooms are all large, airy and plenty of room for clothes. A very large bathroom with walk in shower as well as bath and another shower room. Everywhere is immaculately clean, plenty of clean towels. There a facilities for washing and there is also a dish washer if there are plenty of you. If I were asked I would definitely give this a five star rating. We used this as a base and travelled up and down Scotland, it was ideal.

I would like to say it was like a home away from home - but our home is nowhere near as lovely and clean as Jeanette & Walter's :)
The cottage is a single floor large bungalow - great for the elderly and children as there is no worry of them tripping or falling down unfamiliar stairs. Large comfortable bedrooms - spotless sheets and high quality furnishings. Felt like a new home. Beautiful views all around. Very well equipped kitchen and utilities. Jeanette and Walter looked out for us during our whole stay - baking us scrumptious shortbread (the best I've ever tasted!), dropping off any extra items we might have needed.. Our child loved watching Walter work with the sheep - it's a working sheep farm which made it very interesting for us even when we stayed home. Excellent location for Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed August 27, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

On our way to Templelea Cottage we crossed the conurbation of Glasgow. Looking out for a quiet holiday, we were still a little apprehensive about the urban environment. But as we approached our destination, the area got more and more rural and the environment quieter. Arriving at Templelea Cottage proved our concerns completely unfounded: it is a peaceful oasis with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. And then there was the kind and warm welcome by owner Jeanette.

We have had two wonderful weeks in this spacious, comfortable and extremely clean and well-kept cottage. The location is ideal for trips to the tourist destinations in the area and the large cities (for the rainy days) as well as for walks in the mountains. It was a pleasure to stay at this place: thanks!
