Clean, Comfy, and Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Orchil. Ms. Archibald really made us feel welcome and was extremely responsive to my questions. My family and I had to stay in a house with a kitchen because I have fairly severe food allergies. Ms. Archibald checked to see if I had any specific requirements for cleaners and also wanted to make sure we had all the cooking equipment we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, bowls, cutlery, and the like. The only thing we needed in the kitchen was a jar to pour grease in -- no problem. Ms. Archibald brought it right over and we were squared away. Ms. Archibald also left our children some lovely Easter treats which they absolutely loved!!!

One of the best things about this house is it's location -- especially if you have children. There is a lovely park just up the street (not quite visible from the house, but just beyond) that our children loved -- and some of the local children played football there and invited our boys to play. Everyone was so welcoming and kind -- and we were able to relax and enjoy a quiet vacation. We spent two afternoons in the local village of Philipstoun -- what a lovely castle they have and delightful shops! Lots of restaurants if you can eat in them -- we didn't partake because of my aforementioned food allergies. Finally, we spent several days in Edinburgh -- just a quick 20 min (and relatively cheap!) train ride from Philipstoun; you can catch a bus to grab the train or drive there in less than 10 mins.

We had a lovely stay and would absolutely recommend Orchil to any perspective visitors. You will not be disappointed!

This property has all of the comforts of home in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family was very happy staying here for four nights earlier this month. The property was a fairly short drive from Linlithgow and its train station (we took the train everywhere despite having a vehicle) and not far from the motorway. The home itself was very comfortably furnished and had a very well equipped kitchen. Leanne is a lovely host and was available if we needed her. She had left some food in the kitchen for us which was much appreciated our first night when we arrived quite late due to vehicle problems - thanks Leanne! We would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Wonderful holiday home !!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 sons and I had an amazing time staying in this property for almost 3 weeks. Leanne has thought of everything. The house is cosy and homely- it doesn't feel like a rental holiday home. The kitchen had everything I needed to host a family lunch, the beds were super comfy, plenty of storage space for clothing and a very lovely welcome pack for our arrival. I spent many evenings laying in front of the open fire watching trashy tv ( thanks to a full sky package) whilst the little ones slept. It was great being able to park right outside the front door for carrying sleeping babies straight into the house and the space outside would have been great had it not been the bleak mid winter. My only suggestion ( and this is purely personal preference) would be to take the gazebo down and store the outdoor furniture during the winter as it blocks the view from the kitchen window when you are washing the dishes and its such a lovely view looking out over the fields towards the house of the binns. Leanne looked after us incredibly well and having her next door was great if we had any questions ( or indeed if we needed to borrow a measuring tape!!) We visit Linlithgow most years from Australia to visit family and I have already told my husband that for further visits I would like to come back and stay at ochilview. Thanks you to Leanne and her family !!

Owner's Response: I am pleased you had a wonderful stay at Ochil View and its great to know you would be keen to return when visiting Scotland again . There is a gazeebo on the decking, in front of the kitchen window and it does unfortunately block the views of the Ochil hills, if standing at the sink. I had planned to take the gazeebo down all together on the decking and build a" lean to" with transparent corrugated roofing to allow more of a view from the kitchen window and also to provide shelter outside for sitting out in all weather conditions. I left the gazeebo up through this winter to provide a rain shelter for any smokers that have to sit outside. At least the beautiful Ochil Views can be seen from both rear bedrooms and also from sitting on the decking in the back garden. I hope you will come back and enjoy the new "Lean To" :-)

Fantastic place to stay! Such a warm, cosy and clean house! We had everything what we needed in the house and even more! Hoover, iron, fully equipped kitchen! Landlord even left us milk, biscuits, fruits and etc. and it was great because we arrived at boxing day when shops was closed! Good size of the rooms! Beds very comfy. Great location for travellers, close to motorway, but very quiet and nice place. Not far away from main touristic places like Edinburgh, Glasgow and Loch Lomond. you can found a lot of touristic brochures in the house. Brochures of closest take away helped as well! Thank you for warm welcome and help during the booking and arriving!
