Description

The Monty Python team looked for the holy grail at nearby Doune Castle, but if they had travelled a few miles west they would have discovered this treasure of a cottage instead.

Forming part of a farm courtyard, this 19th century cottage is available to hire on a self-catered basis for a group of up to 8 guests. Recently refurbished the cottage now offers comfortable and traditional accommodation to a modern standard. The open plan living and dining area is a large welcoming space for everyone to relax. The well equipped kitchen will cater well for this group size. The bedrooms are all twin bedded rooms with their own shower room. The spacious games room provides perfect entertainment for all ages. The main section of the cottage has oil fired central heating, with the living room and one of the twin room sections with electric heating. It has been modernised and refurbished to a high standard. With gardens to the front and the farm to the rear, this is a delightful big cottage to enjoy a rural holiday. Situated in a quiet rural setting, though being close to Stirling, there is parking available for 4 cars and it also has access to an outdoor tennis court.

  • Please note
  • There is one large living space which is split between the seating area and the dining space. The seating area looks like a classic elegant sitting room you would find in a country house rather than a cottage, with comfortable sofas and armchairs and prints of game birds on the walls. With a warming wood-burning stove and TV, this is a lovely setting to be entertained in. In the converted garage space which adjoins to the cottage is a games room/sporting room, which houses a table tennis table, wood-burning stove and is adorned with antlers, taxidermy and rod holders for fishing rods. There is also access to a tennis court within the grounds.

    The kitchen is beyond the living space in the centre of the house and it is a classic rectangular space, which has been well designed to maximise work space and storage. With 4 electric hobs and oven, along with the microwave, there is plenty of cooking capacity for the numbers involved. A dishwasher and fridge/freezer are located in the kitchen, whilst a chest freezer can be made available in the games room. There is one large living space which is split between the seating area and the dining space. This dining section is elegantly set-up, with a fine dining table that can seat up to 8 people, surrounded by a dresser and antique pictures on the wall.

    • 2 Twin Bedroom/s With Ensuite Bathroom
    • 1 Twin Bedroom With Shared Shower Room
    • 1 Twin Bedroom/s With Ensuite Shower Room

    The 4 bedrooms can be found in two distinct areas, with 3 of them located beyond the kitchen off the main corridor and the other bedroom located near the front entrance. Off the corridor, there are 3 twin-bedded rooms, all with their own en-suite shower rooms. The other bedroom near the front is also a twin-bedded room, but it has a ramp access to the living space and a separate shower room and w.c in the hall. This section is electric heating only, compared to the other 3 bedrooms which have radiators from the central heating system.

  • Set on a working farm, it is surrounded by fields. Located 10 miles from Stirling, a few miles away from Doune, this property is centrally positioned, being only 46 miles from Edinburgh and 36 miles from Glasgow. With a general store and additional shops in Doune, major supermarkets can be found in Stirling. Blair Drummond Safari Park is nearby and is a perfect day out for families. Stirling Castle, Doune Castle and the Wallace Monument are within easy reach. Fishing is available on the Teith. There are many golf courses in the area including Gleneagles. The nearest distillery is Springston Distillery.
