Reviews From Our Guests

A wonderful family holiday in a stunning location. Beautiful grounds and house with plenty of opportunities for our cyclists and walkers & "wild" swimmers to enjoy as well as proximity to historic sites and other places of interest. The kitchen is well equipped, which made feeding The Hoardes so much easier, and the beds so comfy after an energetic day! We also tried some crazy croquet! Thank you for your warm welcome and help. Histeds from Wiltshire & Bristol; Emslies from South Africa & Bristol; Stallworthys from Bristol; Grahams from Cumbria. 3rd June 2023.

Stunning house in lovely location surrounded by wildlife. Clean and fully equipped, the house was perfect for a group of friends or a large family. We were warmly welcomed and had everything explained. Peaceful location but shops, cafes and takeaways easily reached by car. House has loads of character and spaces to eat and relax together and comfortable bedrooms. McIntyre, Glasgow, 29th March 2023.

Lovely weekend in a lovely house. Plenty of rooms to enjoy doing different things. Beautiful surroundings and grounds. Very well-equipped house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We all loved the house and found everything very comfortable and it had all we could possibly need. Thank you for the eggs and the shortbread - that was very kind. Susan & Stuart, Elaine & Martin, Catherine & Robert, Gregor & Kathryn, Susan, Heather and Susan. 27th March 2023.

Another wonderful Christmas & New year in Scotland. Loved cosy Barn Cottage. Little too old to play in the snow, but enjoyed the walks. Our next car will be a 4WD! Our thanks to Bev & Drew. Thomas Family, Neath. 5th January 2023.

Fabulous, very warm house. Lots of space for us all & two dogs. Great walks too. We made some great memories to start the year. Reid, Adcook, Legge, Marshal & Clark families, Aberdeen. 4th January 2023.

Stable Cottage. What a magic place! We have had a wonderful Hogmanay break, with snowy walks exploring the Estate, games and treats by the cosy fire and lots of lovely fun together. Thank you! Happy New Year. Kirsten, Greig, Zachary & Freya, Edinburgh. 3rd January 2023.

Fabulous house for a big family Christmas in a beautiful location. We even had snow! Great facilities made for a special time - thank you. Sellman & Stanton Families, Australia & UK. 29th December 2022.

We had a wonderful time at Stable Cottage for Christmas 2022. Snow, fires and lots of lovely walks in the snow. Lovely warm cottage, it was perfect. All the best and we hope to be back. Janette, Karl & Mum, Sittingbourne. 29th December 2022.

It was great to be at Cauldhame to celebrate Tony's 95th birthday. A great house for a big party, lots of good days out within easy reach and fabulous wildlife on the doorstep - roe deer, buzzards, red kite, black cock and a few pheasants! Fabulous views from upstairs on a clear day - there are not many places you can lie in bed and watch the red squirrels foraging in the beech trees. A great family holiday. The Watersons - Kirkmichael, Ayrshire; The Colquhouns - Straiton, Ayrshire; The Hopwoods - Beecraig, West Lothian; The Watersons - Kirkwall, Orkeny. 22nd October 2022.

Scotland - what an we say....So beautiful and welcoming. Thank you Bev for preparing such a lovely house and setting for our stay. The six family groups really had the most wonderful holiday together. Thanks. The Thompson families, Weston-super-Mare. 31st August 2022.

We had a wonderful stay for 5 nights in this great and unique Stable Cottage. It was the starting point for many excursions, for example to Stirling, The Kelpies or to Glasgow. Our children and we loved the small cottage, especially the beautiful decor and the cosy kitchen. Thank you for having us and making us very welcome. Susanne, Philipp, Nele & Erik, from Freinshein, Germaany. 27th August 2022.

We had a lovely stay in Barn Cottage. Was a great place for the boys to practice their bagpipes. Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality and warm welcome. We'd love to come back and stay again! Warm regards. The Bevan Family, Vancouver, Canada. 22nd August 2022.

It was a fabulous house, fabulous location. We were very lucky with the weather which meant we didn't have to travel far to entertain ourselves. The house is very well equipped (best I've ever stayed in), so much room. Garden and surrounds all beautiful. Bev and Drew very helpful with couple of minor problems. We had a lot of fun here and would love to come back. Robertson Family, Blandford Forum. 20th August 2022.

Thank you for having us in this beautiful and cosy cottage in which we felt immediatly like home. We enjoyed our stay so much and are looking forward to come back again to Stable Cottage. All the best and thank you again. Giuseppina, Patrick, Gwen & Luis the dog. Germany. 20th August 2022.

Thank you for the lovely days we have had at Stable Cottage, & also the delicious homemade jam and other goodies that greeted us on our arrival. This is the place that we dreamed of owning ha ha! but not to be. Comfort throughout. Thank you again. Iain, Anne, Laura, Nan Pam & Emmy the dog. Oxted, Surry. 11 August 2022.

We had a very nice time here and enjoyed our stay in Barn Cottage. It is a good starting place to explore the area. We made some trips to Dunblane, Stirling and Falkirt. We also visited Edinburgh (by train from Dunblane) and enjoyed the beautiful Scottish city. The kids loved the Harry Potter tour! Thank you for your hospitality! Loek, Cindy, Tessa & Sanne, The Netherlands. 6th August 2022.

We really had an awesome time in this area and in this cosy and beautiful Stable Cottage. We visited Stirling Castle, Scone palace, the Trossachs & Loch Lomond and went all the way to St. Andrews along the Tourist Coastal Path. The scenery and atmosphere here is just great and we enjoyed some smaller walks in the area. We will definetely come back to Scotland and who knows maybe also to this Cottage. Thanks very much! Milla, Meret, Miriam & Dietmar, Northern Germany. 4th August 2022.

Very nice cottage with two bedrooms, a modern kitchen and a cozy living room. Parking right in front of the door. All highly recommended) Stammel Family, Germany. 23rd July 2022.

Barn Cottage is lovely & everything you could possibly need has been thought of.

We've really enjoyed our stay at Barn Cottage, Cauldhame in Sherriffmuir. Bev and her man were great hosts. Always available if we needed anything. It's a great secluded area away from the busy world. The coded gate was a great bit of reassurance. The instructions of how to reach Sherriffmuir was ideal. The cottage had everything including laundry facilities and a whirly gig for the washing. We had previously build up confidence with a cottage around Blair Drummond which hasn't been available for a few years. We are now really happy and look forward to using Cauldhame as a base for future breaks in the Stirling area. The cottage was kept to a really high standard and as a family we really enjoyed it. McKenna family, Ellon. 16th July 2022.

Thank you for making us very welcome. The eggs were very nice, my husband really enjoyed them. The jam was also very nice. Stable Cottage is so nice. It has ben a pleasure to stop here and very comfortable. We will come back. Phil & Barbara, Mansfield. 9th July 2022.

Stable Cottage is set in a quiet location but easy to find and suitably located close to town, the cottage offers outstanding value for money whilst also offering you all the comfort you could need. The accommodation was excellent.Hollingsworth Family, Cornwall. 17th June 2022.

Comfort: ***** Cleanliness: ***** Equipment: ***** Location: *****
Stable Cottage was wonderful. It was cosy but also had the modern amenities all to hand. Each room was equipped with everything you could think of and also with some extras. The welcome hamper was lovely. The whole cottage was spotless and we easily made ourselves at home. The location is rural (which we loved) but also so central to many places to explore - 15 mins in a car takes you to so many different villages or towns. Although the walks around the Estate are enough to keep you busy. No improvements needed. The cottage was perfect, we had a lovely time. We would recommend this property. Burton Family, Lincolnshire. 4th June 2022.

***** The house and grounds were superb, and our family of 13 (from age 5 to 80) had a wonderful holiday. Loads of room for the grandchildren to exercise their muscles and their lungs, and for the oldies to find peace and quiet! Gordon & Family, Wales. 16th April 2022

***** Cauldhame House Great property, we will definitely be back! Reviewed by Alexander & family from London, after their stay on 25th to 28th February 2022

***** Cauldhame is a great place to stay. Lots of space in a house full of history and character. The house has wonderful views for miles. There is wonderful walks nearby and on the Estate itself. Reviewed by Alexander & family from Glasgow, after their stay on 13th to 16th February 2022

**** We had a great stay at Stable Cottage. Was a great location for us as made Glasgow and Edinburgh accessible. Lovely views and friendly hosts. Well equipped cottage and lovely welcome pack. Reviewed by Laura & family from Aberdeen, after their stay on 13th to 16th February 2022

Christmas tree and lights. Could not fault this. The location and house itself are stunning. Loved it. Summers family, Livingston. New year stay. 10th January 2022.

***** Barn Cottage. Really, really nice people, genuine, interesting and very informative. The location is quite remote but that's why we chose it. The walks, history and scenery are fantastic. Although remote, not really too long to get to anywhere in the car. Big thank you to Bev and Drew. Webb, Northampton. 4th September 2021.

***** Brilliant week at Cauldhame house, location perfect for what we wanted. The property was spotless and very well equipped with everything we needed. Stunning views and immaculate gardens. Would definitely recommend. Phillips Family, Gateshead. 28th August 2021.

***** Barn Cottage. A great cottage in a wonderful location. We had a fabulous holiday. Sadler, Bilston. 7th August 2021.

***** Stable Cottage. Absolutely stunning setting. Loved the peace and quiet. Would recommend. Blake, Ellesmere. 10th July 2021.

***** What a wonderful place Stable Cottage is. We were looking for somewhere to relax, chill and catch up and this ticked all the boxes. The accomodation is the nicest I have ever stayed in and is of a really high standard with lots of extras that you dont expect in a holiday let. Bev and Drew were lovely and have thought of everything. They left us a welcome pack that included fresh eggs from the chickens which we really appreciated. Outside there are rabbits, red squirrels, pheasants and chickens roaming about, which was so lovely, and the views at night are spectacular. This is one trip I will always remember and definately planning a return visit. Karen, Glasgow. 29th June 2021.

***** Beautiful cottage (Stable) in a superb location, where there is so much to see and do alternatively you can choose to relax in the beautiful grounds. The cottage is beautifully presented and exceptionally clean. We didn't want to leave. Morley, Wakefield 6th June 2021

***** Barn Cottage: Highly Recommend. Razvan, Middlesex. 23rd May 2021.

***** A wonderful cottage (Barn) in a spectacular location. Lovely walks nearby. Covid secure. Bev and Drew were excellent hosts. The only downside was the very slow broadband connection, and very weak phone signal. Perfect for getting away from it all, especially if you don't want to know what's going in in the rest of the world! Fairweather, Kent 8th May 2021.

***** The instructions I received in the email made Barn Cottage an easy find. It is quite remote but this worked great for us. The property is lovely and clean. Has lots of extras in the kitchen and others like hairdryer and a towel heater which just makes life easier. Beds were really comfy in the main bedroom. Hosts were very pleasant, husband and daughter got a wee history lesson of the area which they appreciated and got to meet the dogs which was even more appreciated. Falconer family, Aberdeen. 23rd October 2020.

***** We stayed in Barn Cottage for 3 nights with our 2 kids. Location is good - nice countryside to explore and burn off energy- yet only 10 mins away from Dunblane and other areas. We would recommend. Searle Family, Inverbervie. 19th October 2020.

***** Loved Stable Cottage. Cauldhame absolutely stunning in the autumn. The views were incredible. Cottage very well equipped and cosy (watch out for occasional low ceilings) Welcome basket very thoughtful. Fantastic spot to unplug, breathe and relax. Very good covid measures in place (perfect pandemic holiday spot esp if big house not being used). Great base for exploring. Bev the manager was so friendly and helpful. Would NOT attempt the road in winter without a 4x4 - property is high/remote. Would recommend. O'Hara family, Stonehaven. 17th October 2020.

***** Stable cottage was beautiful and decorated/furnished to a high standard. The location is fabulous, quite remote with stunning views. We were met by Bev, one of the property managers, who was very friendly and welcoming. The only slight issue was that the mobile signal/WiFi was very slow and we hadn't planned any of our walking/daily activities. There was a list in the property that helped us but unfortunately, didn't have information to clarify dog friendly activities. Thoroughly enjoyed though. Would recommend. Malley family, Lytham St Annes. 10th October 2020.

***** Ideally placed for a quiet, away from it all holiday. Nearest town just 3 miles away. Barn Cottage was clean, warm, all equipment worked. Nice property. Would recommend. Thorpe family, Chesterfield. 3rd October 2020.

***** Had such a wonderful stay at Stable Cottage. Bev and Drew had left some thoughtful items to welcome us and were the perfect hosts, lovely people. It was such a peaceful stay. Ideal location for long walks with the dog and we saw so much wildlife. We definitely want to return. Phipps, Yarm. 3rd October 2020.

***** We had a lovely time in the Stable Cottage. We especially liked the open fire and a cosy kitchen. We had to buy more wood as we ran out because we enjoyed the fire so much. There are lovely walks and stunning views from the property plus there is so much wildlife to watch it's truly a sanctuary. The kitchen has everything one can need and is really fun to cook in. Would definitely come back. Scott, Aberdeen. 29th September 2020.

***** Stable Cottage. Gorgeous location, just remote enough to feel like we were away from it all with great forest walks on our doorstep but with Dunblane, Stirling etc. within driving distance. Great, clean and well equipped cottage (lovely to get some fresh eggs from the hens on arrival) with regular visits from pheasants, red squirrels, escapee chickens and red kites.. really quite a special place to base ourselves from! Jones, Southport. 27th September 2020.

***** Stable Cottage was spot-on, lovely and clean, well appointed and modern. Great location, central for trips to variety of different days out, walks, countryside, a day trip to Edinburgh, whisky distillery etc Overall we had a lovely week thank you. Wilkinson family, Worcs. 15th September 2020.

***** Barn Cottage: Lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings. Ideal for a family of four. Lots of walks close by and easy travelling to Edinburgh, Stirling, Falkirk etc for days out. Internet is limited due to the location. Very clean and well presented and Bev and Drew were helpful informative hosts. Barry family, York. 5th September 2020.

We thoroughly enyoyed our stay in Stable Cottage. It was very cosy and felt like a second home while we were here. We would love to come back and spend some more time here. Fritschen family, Germany. 5th September 2020.

***** Barn Cottage is a charming property in beautiful countryside but close enough to the town of Dunblane to satisfy all tastes. The quiet, rural location is perfect for a relaxed week away in stunning countryside. I would definitely book this cottage again! Catherine, South Sheilds. 22nd August 2020.

We all had a great time staying at Cauldhame House and using it as a base to visit such varied venues as Edinburgh Zoo, Stirling, Crieff, Blair Drummond Safari Park, Loch Katrine, Loch Ard, Loch Earn, The Falls of Dochart etc. We also really enjoyed walking on the estate, especially the visit to the Gathering Stone and the MacRae Clan Memorial. The house is spacious, very comfortable and well appointed and despite Covid-19 restrictions, the house suited our 3 generation family group of 13, plus dogs. We were also lucky to have the lovely catering provide by Moira and Geoff, on our final evening. The food was great and they were great with our grandkids. McClymont Families, London. 15th August 2020

***** Perfect for a quiet retreat. Everything you could ask for supplied in the kitchen. Close to key visitor attractions like Stirling castle and Edinburgh Castle. Well worth a trip. Would recommend Stable Cottage to others. Barley Family, Wales. 10th August 2020.

Everything was perfect thank you! It was a lovely break away! Will definitely come back and recommend Stable Cottage to others! Clare & family, Wales. 8th August 2020.

***** We enjoyed a fantastic week at Barn Cottage which was well equipped and very comfortable. The cottage was very well presented and cleaned to a high standard. Bev was very welcoming and had kindly left us a bottle of wine and other lovely treats which were much appreciated on arrival. Great walks and plenty of outdoor activities for family outings nearby. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Miller family, Renfrew. 5th August 2020.

Lovely little cottage (Stable), very well presented. Great location for exploring Falkirk and Stirling as well as further afield. Also feels miles from anywhere if you just want a peaceful retreat. Owners are lovely, would highly recommend this place. Green, Bournemouth. 21 February 2020.

We had mostly cloudy days & quite a bit of rain but we still enjoyed it very much. A wondeful stay!! Deanna, John & Deborah, Indiana, USA. 9th October 2019.

5 Stars 5/5 We were greeted by Bev at her country Stable Cottage. She provided a freshly baked loaf of bread and homemade jam which were both delicious. The cottage was very comfortable for 2 couples and was outfitted with everything we could possibly need. Nearby Dunblane was convenient for both groceries and restaurants. It was a lovely location and a wonderful 3 day stay. 12th September 2019.

Great place to celebrate a 60th birthday and a last Graham mountain - Ben Venue - on a very hot August day. The family folded into the house so comfortably. A great place to visit the cities of the Central Belt and the Southern Highlands. Roeder family, Huddersfield. 31st August 2019.

We loved our stay in Barn Cottage very well. We enjoyed your welcome and lovely bread and marmalade. The surroundings are beautiful. We had nice walks in the hills and enjoyed not only the scenery but aslo the pubs, distillery, castles and gardens in Stilring and Crieff. We watched the red kites at Argaty and went to the Trossachs and Loch Lomond. Also the Fife coast, little fishing villages and St Andrews were worth the visit. We had a great time and every evening we looked forward to spending the night at the comfortable cottage. Thanks for everything. Maartin, Jasper, Gabriella & Lous. The Netherlands. 10th August 2019.

5 Stars 5/5 Stable Cotttage. Beautiful cottage in an amazing location. Very friendly welcome and great strawberry jam Bev! Would highly recommend staying here! Farrell Family 6th August 2019.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stable Cottage. Bev is an excellent host - kindly giving us homemade bread & jam, eggs & milk and postcards for the kids. Very clean, comfortable cottage in a quiet, scenic spot. Kids loved the garden, and were delighted to see their first red squirrel on several occasions. Also had the bonus of some fantastic weather, glorious sunshine most days, with the only significant rain on the morning we were leaving. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. MacDonald family, North Uist. 27th July 2019.

It was a lovely time staying here at Barn Cottage. Everything we needed was here, thank you for all preparing and hospitality.

We also enjoyed this quiet place and the wonderful landscape. Barn Cottage is a beauriful address for summer holidays in Scotland! Roehl family, Germany. 25th July 2019.

We had great holiday. The house and cottages are excellent and best place for big family holiday. Not any problems during our stay. Thank you so much Bev & Drew for your warm welcome and help. We will see you again. Gurkha family from Aberdeen. 13th July 2019.

Excellent ++ Wonderful property with incredibly relaxing vibe. June 2019

Would love to come again. Marion. A very enjoyable stay in alovely house and grounds. S Bird. 21st June 2019.

5 Stars This house was a perfect location to accommodate our big group, consisting of four families, with ample space and facilities. There were no issues with the temperature of the house or hot water. The kitchen is the heart of the house and was big for us to all get together (even including 2 dishwashers), and includes all those small useful items such as clingfilm and cooking oil. It was also great to have other communal areas, such as the snooker room and the drawing room on the first floor. This layout works really well for families holidaying together, even to the extent that the bed arrangement on the top floor was an ideal to put all the kids! The managers of the Estate live on site and were very helpful in dealing with our enquiries and recommending a good restaurant. The real star of the show is the surroundings and the wildlife (including rabbits, red squirrels and plump pheasants). What you can't see from the photos is that the house sits high up in the Sheriffmuir hills, giving spectacular views of the valley and sunset (particularly from the drawing room). We all loved the fact that the house sits in a peaceful and remote location, yet is only minutes away from the convenience of a major town and motorway network. Mr And Mrs Ballantyne - May 2019.

We loved staying in this comfortable & lovely house. The surrounding coumtryside is so beautiful and we've had views of stunning sunsets. Hopefully we'll be coming back again soon. Thank you. The Lightowler family. 23rd May 2019.

We loved staying in Stable Cottage! The kitchen is gorgeous, the lounge so cosy, the bedrooms lovely & comfortable, and the whole place very well supplied - Bev thought of everything! We took some very pleasant walks around the gardens & fields. So peaceful up here! Thank for a wonderful few days - we hope to come back soon! Dave, Kathleen & MacKenzie, Michigan, USA. 16th May 2019.

** Excellent. We had a great holiday at Cauldhame House. We were a group of six from USA (supposed to be 8 but two had to cancel last minute) so had plenty of room. The views from the house and the grounds are just spectacular. Feels like living on a movie set! We enjoyed learning how to cook with the Aga (and hanging out in the kitchen to enjoy its warmth) and also got a lot of use out of the snooker room each night after dinner. We had a car, but often preferred to use taxis to get down into Dunblane either to eat or hop the train to other parts of Scotland (Dunblane is a very good central spot for exploring, easy to get to both Glasgow and Edinburgh). All in all a great holiday for myself and my siblings and their spouses. Highly recommend this place. And thank you Bev for your help! 3rd May 2019.

We have had such a wonderful time during our stay in Barn Cottage. The boys have had a blast - especially our 2-year old who could have spent hours exploring the grounds every day. Thank you so much for everything you have done to make our stay so comfortable. We'll really miss the place. Judith, Steven, Archie & Indiana. Glasgow. 26th April 2019

What a fabulous house in a beautiful country! We had the most amazing time seeing Dunblane, Stirling, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Oban. Beanutiful cities, incredible architecture and history and the friendliest people in the World! Having Cauldhame to come home to each evening was the perfect end to each day. Thank you. Cheers! The Herren family, Colorado, USA - Sibs Trip 2019. 20th April 2019.

5 Stars It is a very beautiful location to stay with a large group. The Welcome is warmly and everything is well explained by the property manager. No matter what you wish, it�s all around the cottage. History close, Dunblane in perfect distance to buy your stuff and wildlife and silence all around the house. Perfect for a nice and quite holiday and if you are on the road the whole day you will be much lucky to have a nice ambiente and billiard room to have an outstanding evening program. All in all ... no wishes left open. Mr Macgregor - April 2019

Hi there! An outstanding location for an outstanding vacation. We will always come back. Yours The German Clan Gregor Society. 12th April 2019.

Cauldhame has been the most fabulous venue for our gathering of friends. The house is beautiful and so well equipped - lots of lovely unexpected extras too! The weather wasn;'t too kind to us the first couple of days but we enjoyed being cosied up in front of the fire. When the weather improved, we saw just how stunning the location and scenery were. The kids had great fun exploring the house and gardens - and learing how to plat snooker! Such a great time had by all! Thanks.

Well wow! Bringing all the family together under such a special roof at this time of year has just been fantastic. So cosy and comfortable with the best stocked crockery/cutlery cupboards we have ever seen in a holiday let! Bas weather couldn't spoil our fun.

This is a super house in a wonderful location with so much to enjoy within and around this magnificent building. Thank you for thinking so carefully about everything we might need. There was so much for people of all ages; it was a joy to live, eat and play here. The upstairs drawing room with its vast windows looking over the surrounding landscapes was paticularly enjoyed. We very much hope to return. Dr Peter Ward & Friends. 18th November 2018.

Great house for a family get together. Very interesting to hear about the history of the house from Bev. Autumn colours just beautiful around the grounds. Sadly no red squirrels but lots of pheasants, including a black one!. The Walkers. 25th October 2018.

Wonderful, quiet, warm! The views are superb - and we absolutely loved the wildlife - especially at the bird feeders. Thanks again! X. Pettigrew & group. 13th October 2018.

5 Stars Loved our time at Cauldhame. We found the area beautiful, and so quiet and peaceful. The property was well-equipped, and the property manager was always available when we had questions or issues. It is well situated, just a few miles from lovely Dunblane, with Stirling and Doune nearby, and so many things to see and do. We even took a day and drove to Glencoe and back, which was only about 5 hours. Well worth the drive!! Wish we could have stayed longer. Our entire family loved the house and area. Wish we had had more time to explore Sheriffmuir, which the Estate sits in. History is accessible everywhere! Thank you for a fantastic week - definitely would recommend. Mrs Naylor - October 2018

We had a wonderful week at Cauldhame. The house is so lovely, well equipped and comfortable. We loved our walks around the Estate, the wildlife and a house that accomodated our families and providing ample opportunities to create memories together. It is an ideal location to see Scotland and all it has to offer. We also loved the games in the drawing room, and all the cooks in the family enjoyed trying out the AGA. Bev was wonderfully helpful and assisted with all our questions. Thank you for a lovely week! The Naylor families - Charlotte, USA & Rotherham, and the Wilson and Bray families, Rotherham and Doncaster. 5th October 2018.

Enjoyed our stay here with family to celebrate "special" birthdays. Very well equipped house and the children enjoyed the outside space for games, exploring and a chocolate egg hunt! We had a lovely visit to Briarlands Farm where we enoyed all the activities plus animal handling session & tractor ride with a very friendly farmer. Thank you for the bread, homemade jam & eggs. Really enjoyed them. The Newtons, Patersons & Hanlons, Winchburgh. 18th September 2018.

We just returned from a weeks stay at the country house on the Cauldhame Estate This was a family trip with 8 adults and we had a wonderful time. The house is spacious, with amble bedrooms and bathrooms, comfortable beds and a very well stocked kitchen. If you choose to cook there are pots and pans of different sizes, casserole dishes, serving dishes, a wok, drip coffee maker and French press. There is a snooker table and froze ball in the games room which was used during our stay.The grounds are lovely with chance of seeing wildlife including birds, rabbits and the domesticated animals such as sheep and Bev's chickens. For those that like to walk there are walking paths, and we did walk into Dunblane one afternoon- took about 75 minutes. For convenience it is better to have a car, as it also allows for doing day trips around the area and further afield. We were greeted with freshly baked bread, fresh farm eggs and homemade jam compliments of Bev the manager. Thanks Bev they were a lovely treat! We would stay at this rental property again should we return to Scotland.10th September. On TripAdvisor

The Foster, MacPherson, Warner & Wiswell families arrived for our first visit to Scotland. Cauldhame was a beautiful and well-equipped house for our stay. We enjoyed the fresh eggs, home cooked bread and jam - such a lovely start to our first morning! We enjoyed exploring the Estate, walks in the hills and many day trips from this central location. We have many fond memories to take home to Canada with us! Thanks Bev for your tasty treats and answers to our many questions. Karon, Toronto. 1st September 2018.

5 Stars Lovely cottage on a country estate. Had a lovely week in August staying at Barn Cottage. The place is decorated to a modern design despite the exterior being a traditional stone cottage. The 4 rooms are all of a good size. 2 double bedrooms (one with a shower) 1 bathroom and a cosy kitchen/lounge/dining area. The temperature outside was average for Scotland and the inside was kept comfortable by the way of electric radiators. The kitchen was fully equipped with all that you need including a washing machine. There were complimentary toiletries, use of towels and food to help the first day or so of your stay. The cottage is part of an estate which is quite remote so a car is essential. Also a love of narrow country lanes is helpful as whatever way you leave the cottage you will drive down one. The estate managers are on site to help and advise you should you need their help. 20th August 2018.

Had a wonderful stay at Barn Cottage, our first visit to the heart of Scotland. Location is perfect for exploring all points of the compass and it was always a pleasure to drive back to the cottage at the end of the the day, to enjoy the peace and beauty of its location. Bev & Drew have provided everything you need to make the most of your stay, Definately intend to be back ASAP. Steph & Kev, Essex. 18th August 2018.

Thank you very much Bev for our lovely holiday in Stable Cottage, We enjoyed our stay here very much in this cosy cottage, although the weather wasn't the best. The nature and calmness around the cottage is really phantastic. We visitied Glasgow and Edinburgh, spent one day at the Perth Highland Games and went to Stirling & Glamis Castles and Dunblane Cathedral - all amazing places! Best wishes. Lochschmidt family, Germany. 17th August 2018.

What a lovely, cosy and peaceful base (Stable Cottage) for our Scottish holiday! We enjoyed Highland Games in Bridge of Allan, the Edinburgh Fringe, European Championship Gymnastics in Glasgow & Edinburgh, Andy Murray's gold postbox in Dunblane, Stirling, Perth leisure pool (fantastic for the kids!) and Loch Lomond. The welcome pack and general welcome was much appreciated and we love the big garden too. We hope to return as we don't really want to leave!. Adam Family, Bishops Stortford. 10th August 2018.

A large family reunion with 13 in the main house and up to 4 in Stable Cottage. We found both properties very comfortable and warm and loved the big kitchen. We enjoyed good weather, exploring the gardens and travelling as far afield as Edinburgh and Fife. Thanks Bev for the lovely stay and the fresh bread and eggs. Steward family. 4th August 2018.

Thanks for enabling us to stay in your very comfortable Stable Cottage and the big house. We had a great time. Steward. 4th August 2018.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our kids and grandchildren. We are a group of 14 and we all enjoyed the house, cottage and the surroundings. It was an unforgettable week. Velk-Alkemade, The Netherlands. 28th July 2018.

The house was perfect for our family, ages 5 - 70. Plenty of room to spread out. The children loved running and playing in the garden. Enjoyed family walks and outings from our location. Thank for the bread, jam and eggs. delicious!! The McNeer and Tullys, USA. 21st July 2018

We really enjoyed our stay at Cauldhame House. The location and the facilities were great. It made our stay in Scotland much more relaxing, having a "home" to return to, and to be able to cook meals was great. The Priskorn, Held & Denomme families, USA. 7th July 2018.

The Teass family (16 in all) came over to Scotland from Virginia and Washington DC, USA to visit Teasses Gardens in Fife. Our stay here in Cauldhame has been delightful. Our grandchildren loved the gardens and space to play in and the adults found the well-equipped and comfortable interior a great place in which to relax. Looking forward to a furure trip. Teass Family. 30th June 2018.

We couldn't have asked for a better place for our first time in Scotland. The setting is spectacular, accomodation is comfortable and the hospitality delioghtful. We will always reflect fondly on our stay at Barn Cottage. Thank you so much for everything! DJ, Cindy & Benjamin, Oregon, USA. 11th June 2018.

Thank you for a really lovely week in Barn Cottage. Great fun cycling and walking. Can recommend The Jam Jar, The Royal, Vecchia Bologna and the Allanwater Cafe - all in Bridge of Allan for local food and drinks. If cycling, recommend Velocity 44 in Stirling - fantastic service. Drew & Bev were perfect hosts - lovely bread, jam, eggs & butter, and great for local knowledge. Waterfall & pond walks on the doorstep were lovely. We'll definately recommend this little gem and be back soon. Abi & Darren, Dartford, Kent. 2 June 2018.

5 Stars My wife and I stayed in Barn Cottage for a week at the end of May. We had glorious sunshine all week and found the cottage ideally situated for walking and cycling as well as being close to Stirling, Bridge of Allan and Dunblane. The cottage had everything we needed and is located in a quiet spot at the top of a hill giving wonderful views out over towards the Trossachs. Bev and Drew were great hosts and made us feel welcome. We would definitely stay here again. Moss, Kent, 2nd June 2018.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Cauldhame for my 60th Birthday celebration with the whole family. Thank you Bev for the lovely bread, eggs and marmalade. If anyone wants a caterer, we can recommend Wendy Gudgeon who privided a great special meal including a vegan option for one and lovely tiny portion for a one-year old. Great views, great wildlife abnd a spectacular setting. The nine adults ALL said this is their dream house! We've had a fabulous week and I wanted to thank you for renting out the house to us. It was such an easy booking for us and your responses to emails were perfectly timed. We'll do reviews for Trip Advisor and for your website when we get home. What a fantastic house! Peter and I have fallen in love with it, the Estate, Dunblane and just about everything else the area has to offer. And the weather was great too! Thanks again Caine Family, Warwick. 20th May 2018.

Thanks a lot. It was a wonderful stay at a very comfortable Stable Cottage in a beautiful countryside. Thank you. Blossey, Germany. 19th May 2018.

Lovely House, good location, we had a fantastic stay. Thanks. Shultz & Co., Galasheilds. 9th October 2017.

We really enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. It's a very comfortable place to stay. We were particularly impressed by the double bed, which was huge. We hardly knew there was someone else in it! We also enjoyed the squirrels and the pheasants. Thank you again (also for the provisions you left for us - much appreciated), Very best wishes, Lynda & Jon, Italy October 2017.

My husband stipulated a castle in Scotland as his choice of venue for our family get together for his 70th birthday celebration. After a lot of searching I found this wonderful castle like house which was just right for our family of 9 adults, 5 children and a dog, ages ranging from 90s to 1 year old. There was ample room for us all, though most time was spent in the huge well equipped kitchen and the conservatory. Tesco delivered provisions for the week early Saturday evening. With Bev's help we organised a super celebration birthday meal on one evening with the food being prepared and served by Wendy Gudgeon and her assistant, and Archie Stirling-Aird, the Laird's son piped for us in the drawing room during the serving of canapes and champagne and then piped us down to dinner in the dining room. It was an evening to remember!! There were plenty of activities in the surrounding area for our diverse interests, including adventure at Go Ape, a boat trip on Loch Katrine, a visit to the Battle of Bannockburn Experience, pony trekking, plenty of country walks, shopping in Stirling, a visit to Dunblane Cathedral and exploring surrounding small towns and villages for coffee, lunch and afternoon tea. We (and especially the children) particularly enjoyed watching the red squirrels and birds in the trees outside the consevatory. Thank you too to Bev for the delicious bread, marmalade and beautifully coloured fresh eggs from her special hens. A super venue very much enjoyed by us all. The Badger family, from Herts, London, Oxford and W Sussex. October 2017.

Thanks - had a fantastic weekend celeration. Lovely house and a great place for a family party. Cowan Family & Co. 25th September 2017.

Thank you for a lovely stay in your lovely, welcoming house. Had a surprise 40th birthday celebration with friends from the UK (Edinburgh, Manchester, Cambridge), Spain, Germany and the US. Grown ups and kids all enjoyed it immensely! We had a fantastic stay - thank you very much. Hopefully we will be back! Finch Family 18th September 2017.

We were there with a group of 11 people. The house is big, nice and very well mantained. The kitchen is fully equipped, the drawingroom room upstairs is big and beautifiull. Everything was perfect. Also the service we received from Beverley, who was always available to help us with anything. The area is very nice, but definetively, not for urban lovers. It is a peacefull site in the middle of a moor, but it is quite close (under 10 minute by car) to Dunblane where you have supermarkets and all the services. You can use also the online services of Tesco, they bring your purchase to the house very efficiently. Martin family, Spain, August 2017

Wow!! What a fantastic house. We all had a wonderful time celebrating my Mum & Dad's 80th Birthdays - Cannot fault a thing!! Stinning views, wonderful beds, snooker room used continually!! Thank you so much X We loved it XXX The Rimmer Family XXX, Preston. 26 August 2017

Our first taste of Scotland, also because of our stay in this lovely Stable Cottage, has been a very positive one. We fell in love with the beauty of the Highlands and Edinburgh. We loved the warm welcome by our kind hosts and the delecious welome basket. The very cosy and comfortable cottage, combined with the magnificent views and the cute animals (wildlife) running around, made us feel immediatly at home. Jan, Ina, Chantal & Laura from Holland. 19th August 2017

Our second holiday in Barn Cottage was as lovely as the first! We had a great time despite some rainy days. Thank you !! P.S. The bread and jam were lovely. Marianne, Eric, Walter & Elizabeth from France. 19th August 2017

We have had a fantastic time in Stable Cottage & in the big house (plus Barn Cottage), where 20 of us celebrated the wedding of our son & the 50th birthday of our new daughter-in-law. Everything we needed was supplied. The cottage is so cosy. We are going home with sadness as we would have liked to stay lomger. Thank you Bev & Drew. From Jan & Andy. 29th July 2017.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stable Cottage. The views were great and the birds & squirrels. The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed our visits to Loch Katrine & Lomond, racing at Perth and Glasgow (Hamilton Park). The cottage has all is required for a holiday. Thanks to Bev for being a perfect host and the bread, marmalade, eggs and milk were much appreciated. We will recommend to our family & friends. Coombs/Quirk family Essex. 21st July 2017

Thank you so much for providing a top quality venue for a "special" 60th birthday celebration. This is a great party venue. Comfy beds. Gorgeous views. When the sun came out for our BBQ night, it was like we were in heaven. The crowd from Aberdeen 18th July 2017

We have had a wonderful week in this beautiful place. Stable Cottage is so comfy, beds are great. We hope to be back soon. Thanks for a lovely warm welcome. Jim & Gerry. Forres. 14th July 2017.

We had a wonderful, comfortable time, and loved our stay (in Stable Cottage). Balstons 6 July 2017

We had the best time seeing family. What a brilliant house & location. Kids loved the gardens. Fantastic memories. Kerrs 1. Wonderful time seeing family again. Gardens fantastic and wildlife as well. Would certainly recommend to other family members and friends. Kerrs 2. Ideal location and property for a family gathering with family members coming from Conrwall, Lincolnshire, Bannockburn & Aberdeen. Gardens and lawns perfect for walks and children. Wildlife on the doorstep. Well done Cauldhame. Martins 1st June 2017.

Fantastic greeting with lovely eggs, bread & marmalade + milk for a wee brew. Stunning views, beautifully decorated cottage. What a great place to get away from the daily hustle & bustle. Pretty sunsets + lots to take in + photograph! Will definately plan to return & will recommend! Visited Doune Castle, Trossachs, Loch Lomond, Glenfiddich, Glencoe, Fort William, Hopetoun House, Stirling Castle, Cairngorms, Aviemore, Newtonmore. Trecked at Castle Rednock.

I would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Cauldhame. It was a perfect location to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday with her grandchildren and great grandchildren and she thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Thank you too for the delicious home made bread and marmalade and the fresh eggs. Cauldhame is a lovely house in a beautiful location and hopefully we will be able to visit again in the not too distant future. Fiona. 8th May 2017.

First time to Barn Cottage, after many stays in/around Dunblane to visit our son and his family. Barn Cottage is a true gem and a great find for us. Nice, quiet setting close enough to Stirling as well. Lovely cottage with really everything included. We will be back! Irene & Henk, The Netherlands. 4th May 2017.

Easter Holiday 2017. We enjoyed our stay here in Barn Cottage! We had a great time here, we particularily liked visiting Edinburuh zoo! It was a fantastic stay and the beds were extra compfy!

The Pearson family. 18th April 2017.

We had a wonderful stay at the house, celebrating a very special 70th birthday. All 4 generations loved it! Thanks Bev. The Badgers. 15th April 2017.

Thanks for a lovely stay in a beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting! Helen, Caitlin & Mary xx 14th April 2017.

Great + A fantastic house with a stunning view. Made to feel very welcome on arrival. Had a fabulous time with large family ages ranging from 4-70. 12th April 2017.

We had a lovely stay here (Stable Cottage) and enjoyed visiting Stirling Castle, The Kelpies, Falkirk Wheel, Wallace Monument and posting postcards at Andy Murray's gold postbox in Dunblane! Takeaway from la Cucina in Bridge of Allan was delicious. Bev's marmalade and fresh eggs were also enjoyed! Thanks McKnight Family (Dumfries). 10th April 2017.

Our trip here is well too short. However, Stable cottage was very comfortable. From here we had a couple of good trips out to Dunblane and the Wallace Monument. Thanks Bev for the marmalade - it was very good. Hope to see you again. Biddle, Birmingham. 7th Mar 2017.

Excellent ++ My daughter's bridesmaids arranged a hen weekend at Cauldhame House, from the moment we arrived we agreed we could not have chosen a better house/location. Bev came over to introduce herself but give us a few pointers on heating etc... she made everyone feel very welcome even leaving us a present of homemade bread and marmalade! Thank's Bev. Although Cauldhame is remote, Dunblane and Stirling are close by. The house was very well equipped and really warm and inviting. We will be booking again soon! 2nd March 2017.

A lovely week in a comfortable and traditional Stable Cottage. Peaceful surroundings and wonderful in the snow � bonus, lots of snow � Bev & Drew lent us sledges, good fun! Warm, welcoming, and interesting wildlife surrounding. (loved the red squirrels, thanks for the photos!). Loved the surrounding countryside and various species of wildlife. Murray family, Cumbria. 25th Feb 2017.

Thank you so much again for a lovely weekend at Cauldhame. Our party had a great time, and we really appreciated the bread, marmalade and eggs which helped us feel very at home! Stephanie Feb 2017.

Lovely homely stay for extended family. Log fire gets hot - we all roasted - it was great. Had everything we needed for 17. Red squirrels busy at feeder and lots of birds at feeder & pheasants.. McDonnell Family Dec 2016.

5 Stars Great peaceful location, spectacular surroundings. We rented Stable Cottage at short notice after our Greek holiday fell through last minute in August. We ended up having one of our best family holidays at this cottage. It was clean; Bev the manager was very welcoming and our special requirements were also accommodated (anti-allergic bedding). The cottage is conveniently located for sights and outdoor activities, as well as some great restaurants nearby. Our 2 children loved exploring the area. Highly recommended accommodation. Nov 2016

Fantastic house for us all and perfect location for shooting at Kippendavie. Such pretty rooms and v comfy beds. Beautiful drawing room - all very special. A wonderful location and everyone very helpful and accomodating. Thanks you. Mr Allan Nov 2016.

Beautiful house with lovely rooms and views. We really enjoyed our stay. The children loved the red squirrels. Bev was very helpful and we enjoyed the homemade bread and jam on arrival. Mrs Smith October 2016.

5 Stars This was my second trip to Cauldhame House - I certainly hope to make a third. The house is in excellent condition, set in spectacular grounds and is close enough to civilization for all manner of activities while maintaining a real sense of isolation. We had a fantastic long weekend without any problems. Would highly recommend. . Mr Pugh September 2016.

4 Stars The house was very nice. We all enjoyed the spacious living area, the Aga oven and the full size snooker table. The walks around the house were nice and provided some good views of the countryside. The views from the house itself were very nice and somewhat spectacular during the sunsets. The close availability of the Sherrifmuir Inn was nice for a quick drink or a fantastic meal. Dunblane was easily reached in 10 minutes by car for other dining options and groceries - Aug 2016.

5 Stars I booked Cauldhame House to spend a week with friends as part of my 60th birthday celebrations. I wanted to go somewhere quiet and peaceful but close to areas of interest. We weren't disappointed. The location is fabulous with wonderful views from the house and each day we were visited by red squirrels and dozens of young pheasants who provided great entertainment. Dunblane is just a short drive away (although, unfortunately, for the week we were there the road was closed for roadworks so we explored different country roads!) the house itself is beautiful and while, in a way, it is quite grand, it was also very homely and comfortable. The house is very well equipped and we wanted for nothing. We were treated to Bev's home made bread and marmalade as well as fresh laid eggs and some other basics to get us started. Luxury toiletries are provided (I now love Arran Aromatics!) and the towels and bed linens are all of high quality. There are so many places within easy reach of Cauldhame but, actually, we were so glad that we had factored in time to spend just enjoying the house and surrounding area. It is far too nice to use just as a base or somewhere to sleep! Bev was particularly helpful in providing advice in the lead up to our trip and was on hand if we had needed anything during our stay. The local pub, the Sherriffmuir Inn, is friendly and welcoming and serves great food. We were amazed that somewhere so remote gets so full most nights - would recommend booking - but lots of people from nearby towns seem to go there. Overall, we loved everything about our stay at Cauldhame and are already thinking about when we can next go there! Mrs Boulter. July 2016

5 Stars It was in a wonderful location, brilliant house and the owners were really nice and helpful but left us to do our thing. Would definitely recommend and we will be going back again. Mr Blackman - July 2016.

Now that we are home and reflecting on our week at Cauldhame, I just wanted to say that we all had a fabulous time. We found the house so comfortable that it was easy to feel at home. The house itself is so well equipped that we wanted for nothing. The views were a joy to wake up to and we really enjoyed our walks in the surrounding area. The works on Glen Road had the potential to disrupt things but, in fact, we found a number of alternative routes and saw parts of the local area that we would have otherwise missed. I also wanted to thank you for your recommendation of Wendy Gudgeon. She provided a picnic for us on one day and then came to the house to cook for us one evening and the meal proved to be a real highlight. Thanks also for the delicious bread and marmalade, the wonderfully fresh eggs, and for the other useful essentials that you left for us. So, overall, a fantastic week and we will definitely find an excuse to return! Gail, July 2016.

The house was beautiful, so very well equipped, felt like home from home and was given a very warm welcome from Bev. Perfect location for exploring further, would definitely recommend. Excellent ++ 21st July 2016.

Beautiful, well equipped house. Fabulous location, lovely welcome . . . Bev's home-made bread, marmalade etc. Good location for sightseeing. Would highly recommend. Fabulous house - not one complaint - perfect holiday. Read Group 16th July 2016.

� un posto favoloso in 10 ettari di terreno. Arredata con gusto e signorilit� stile '800. Tutto molto confortevole e di prima categoria con grande attenzione ai dettagli. La Sig.ra Bev Wilson, la "caretaker" del posto ci ha fatto trovare un welcome pack consistente di pane e marmellata fatta in casa, uova, latte e burro. Anche se situata in un posto rurale, la graziosa cittadina di Dunblane a 6km offre tutte le amenit� necessarie, i.e. negozi, pubs, ristoranti, una bellissima chiesa ed un museo. Si trova vicino Stirling e una quarantina di km da Edimburgo e Glasgow. Noi eravamo un gruppo di amici di 9 persone e nessuno di loro si � lamentato, anzi , hanno detto che hanno dormito benissimo in letti comodissimi con lenzuola di morbidissime lino. La settimana � passata in fretta con il solo disappunto del tempo, ha piovigginato spesso! e non siamo riusciti a fare un barbecue, ma, in compenso c'era una "Aga cooker" con 5 forni sempre accesi. Abbiamo cucinato un squisito anello!. (La sg.ra Bev, ci persino fatto trovare una cassettina di erbe!) E' veramente da raccomandare!!! ------- Translated by Google as: It is a fabulous place in 10 hectares of land. Furnished with taste and elegance style '800. All very comfortable and first class with great attention to detail. Mrs. Bev Wilson, the property manager of the place made us find a welcome pack consisting of homemade bread and jam, eggs, milk and butter. Although situated in a rural place, the lovely town of Dunblane 6km offers all the necessary amenities, i.e. shops, pubs, restaurants, a beautiful church and a museum. It is near Stirling and about 40 km from Edinburgh and Glasgow. We were a group of friends of 9 people and none of them complained, indeed, have said they have had a great sleep in comfortable beds with very soft linen sheets. The week passed quickly with the only disappointment of the time, drizzled often! and we could not do a barbecue, but in return there was a "Aga cooker" with 5 always on ovens. We cooked a delicious ring !. (Bev, we even did find a box of herbs!). And really to be recommended. Excellent ++ 8th July 2016

Fabulous holiday - really nice place - great facilities. Red squirrels amazing. Thanks so much. (kids loved it). Howie family. 25th June 2016

Beautiful house and grounds. Excellent ++ 15th June 2016

5 Stars Fabulous location well equipped will return. Stable cottage was one of the best cottages we have stayed in would highly recommend this to everyone. Great location and plenty to do but not far from anywhere. Helen. May 2016.

5 Stars Perfect accommodation for our whole family to get together. Master suite and drawing room provided a great, peaceful getaway from the noise and bustle of our 5 small grandchildren! They loved the playroom. Snooker room great addition for the "boys". Well equipped, large kitchen. Lovely grounds and absolutely stunning views. Lots of things for all age groups to do in the area - historic sites, animal parks, bird watching and great walks and cycle rides without going too far. The children thoroughly enjoyed a visit to Perth Leisure Pool on the only rainy/snowy day we had. Mrs Shannon - April 2016.

The house was superb and the views were breathtaking. Excellent ++ 26th March 2016

Beautiful house, particularly the kitchen and the drawing room on the 1st floor, and all the bedrooms. Immaculate and well stocked. Great views over Sheriffmuir towards the Grampians. Excellent ++ 7th March 2016

5 Stars We had a fantastic time staying here - the house is amazing and Bev was very helpful. Would definitely recommend! Mrs Cruickshank - March 2016.

5 Stars This is the perfect venue for an extended family holiday; warm and welcoming (the house and the managers), spacious and beautifully appointed, every facility provided, wi-fi,TV, games, books, maps, brochures. We would go back any time, and heartily recommend Cauldhame. Rev Lunan - October 2015.

The house is absolutely beautiful, as is the surrounding area, and Bev and Drew couldn't have been more helpful or considerate to us during our stay. The little things like the freshly laid eggs and homemade jam to welcome us when we arrived, really helped to make the holiday special. We will definitely return. Thank you! :) Excellent ++ Sept 2015.

My family and I had an amazing week at Cauldhame, we enjoyed the views, walks, wildlife and the house itself. The house was well catered for our extended family of 11 (5 adults and 6 children). My mum was very impressed with the sunset she saw from her window every day. The children enjoyed exploring the grounds and meeting the local wildlife. Excellent ++ Sept 2015.

5 Stars Cosy comfortable public rooms. Bedrooms spacious and stylish & comfortable. Lovely grounds. Warm welcome . Games room a bonus . Sheriffmuir Inn close by served walkers who had forgotten money! Mrs Green - September 2015.

5 Stars We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. It was clean and well maintained and the beds were really comfy. The provisions Bev left for us were very welcome and the gooseberry jelly was delicious. Drew very kindly left kindling and peat for us and we had a few roaring fires in the evening. The grounds were lovely to walk in and Dunblane is very close with a variety of places for coffee and food. There is a very good butcher if you choose to cook and the Sheriffmuir Inn is fabulous if you don't (600 yards from cottage). The Trossachs are within easy reach as are many historical sites. Don't buy sandwiches if you visit Loch Katrine! We would highly recommend Stable Cottage and hope to visit again next year. Susan N. Aug 2015.

5 Stars Very enjoyable, directions to Stable Cottage were good and the facilities were as advertised. Bev made us very welcome with a tour of the very clean and well presented cottage and to contact her if we had any questions or problems during our stay. Bev was very approachable and hospitable. The homemade bread, delicious jam and local eggs on the kitchen table, very comfortable superking bed (good quality bed linen and towels), comfortable sofas to relax on (we're tall so it was nice to have decent sized seating) overall ambience of the cottage including the welcome and the care taken of the surrounding areas around the cottage was very good and we will definitely be recommending Cauldhame to friends and family.

5 Stars Description was accurate and location lovely. Stable Cottage was clean and comfortable. The manager was friendly and helpful, internet was free and pets were allowed. Main attraction is walking but Dunblane, Bridge of Alan and Stirling and Perth are accessible by car. Wallace `Monument and Stirling Castle can be visited and many other attractions further afield. A pub on Sheriffmuir is within walking distance. Would recommend this cottage to friends who enjoy a peaceful very rural Scottish holiday with suitable clothes for the great outdoors! Judith M.

5 Stars Stable Cottage was a wonderful place to stay, in a great peaceful location with fantastic views. We received a warm welcome from Bev, and she showed us around the cottage which was lovely, clean and well appointed. Bev also left some much appreciated provisions for us. The space was perfect for our week long stay. The cottage was far enough away from town to be peaceful, with great access to walks and moorland, but close enough for a short drive to the shops and many great local attractions. The bed was very comfortable, and we had everything we needed for our stay. Drew went out of his way to help us when our car battery went dead, and helped us get back on the road. Overall we really felt relaxed and enjoyed our stay and we would be happy to return. The mansion on the estate would be a fantastic place to have an extended family holiday too. Geoff & Jane W. July 2015.

5 Stars Stable Cottage was really well equipped, cosy, and clean. Perfect for our family of four. The open fire was lovely. The setting is so tranquil yet close enough to amenities not to feel isolated. Perfect location for exploring both the East or the West side of Scotland. We'll definitely be back. Ed G. July 2015.

5 Stars Excellent Cottage. After travelling the world for several months Barn Cottage was the perfect retreat from hotels and 3 meals a day! Bev & Drew very friendly and helpful. Wish we had time to stay longer. Tracy & Friends. June 2015.

Cauldhame House is a stunning property, beautifully presented and equipped to a high standard. Everything you need is provided, and more. I could not recomment this property more highly. Excellent ++ June 2015.

Lovely property with everything you could possibly need for a self catering break. Well appointed kitchen, comfortable areas for relaxing, comfortable beds with lovely linen and towels. No hesitation in recommending this property. Excellent ++ May 2015.

5 Stars Excellent property and perfect location for us to explore the Eastern coast of Scotland and the Cairngorms. Enjoyed the quiet location-but also close enough to facilities. Stable Cottage was lovely and comfortable. appreciated the welcome pack (especially the bread!) and the complimemntary toiletries -a lovely touch. Friendly welcome form Bev. David appreciated Drew's advice for the cycling in Aberfoyle.. have already recommended the property to family and friends and will probably return again ourselves at some point. We enjoyed a day at a gathering and a long tour around the Cairngorms -a long day but worth it. Also visited the castle on the island at Loch Leven.The highlight was probably our day on the train from Crainlarich to Mallaig -well worth it-stunning scenery. David & Carol R. May 2015.

Bev was very welcoming and helpful. Such a lovely house, the photos don't do it justice! Excellent ++ March 2015.

Amazing house - well stocked with everything. They even put up with our warm bloodedness and raised the heating. Excellent ++ Oct 2014.

5 Stars We all enjoyed our stay, the house and grounds. The trout fishing was a particular surprise and as a new fly fisherman was delighted to catch two rainbow trout. Managers of the property were a delight and should be congratulated on there service whilst we were there. Frequented a number of pubs etc the best of which was the Church House. The local pub is good and convenient. Wildlife abundant for the keen enthusiast. Stockwin - July 2014.

Beautiful accomadation with excellent facilities. Excellent ++ June 2014.

5 Stars Thanks for this - we really enjoyed our stay in Stable cottage. Ivy D. May 2014.

Bev could not have been more welcoming or helpful. When I sent her a text to see if we could get hold of a wok and a blender both were waiting for us when we got back to the house. The house itself was beautiful and (with the Cottages) perfect for our hen party of 21. Highly recommended! Excellent ++ March 2014.

Quirky property, stunning views, could imagine it being utterly fabulous in the summer months. Great + Feb 2014.

Loved this place. Very relaxing and peaceful. Excellent ++ Oct 2013.
