Overview

About the property

Quality accommodation at the heart of a traditional village with parking.

This is a high quality church conversion which we fell in love with when we first viewed it. It is our home when we are in Scotland and is a peaceful beautiful place to be based. The views are stunning and the house easy to enjoy with quality furnishings and fittings and well proportioned rooms.

It's central location in the village is ideal and yet it's private and quiet with a traditional pub very near. Also there is a village shop, butcher, a second pub and deli/cafe all within 25 meters, yet the cottage is uniquely private and quiet.

Kippen is a small and close community and nearby the walks and rural scenery are stunning. The pubs provide great food and atmosphere too after a day exploring. It's not far to visit Stirling, Glasgow or Edinburgh and trips to the hills and the highlands are also easily accessible using Kippen as a base. We love this place and hope you will too.

The cottage has under floor heating throughout. High speed WiFi and a quality entertainment system. The cottage has views from every room over the Scottish Highlands.

Comfortable stay with friends.

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and tidy, with all facilities just as described. The heating was on thankfully, as it was November and freezing. The beds were very comfortable and having two double beds and two bathrooms was ideal for two couples. Please note though, if you arrive after dark the passage down to the cottage is pitch black and you will not find the key safe without a pretty good torch.

Lovely accommodation and Good Location to explore Scotland.

  • 4 of 5

My family of four stayed at this house for a week in FEB and it was great. The house is modern and really well equipped. Situated in the quite village of Kippen with good amenities close by in the village and the town of Sterling. It's an excellent base to explore the wonderful surroundings. We had very good communication with the owner when I booked and during our stay. I would defiantly recommend this accommodation, and will be back again.

Nearby the walks and rural scenery are stunning. The pubs provide great food and atmosphere too. It's not far to visit Stirling, Glasgow or Edinburgh and trips to the hills and the highlands are also easily accessible. We love this place and hope you will too.

The cottage has under floor heating throughout. High speed WiFi and a quality entertainment system. The cottage has views from every room over the Scottish Highlands.

Good Location to explore Scotland!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for 2 nights with my partner and 2 young boys. The property itself is of a good size and is very well equipped. Personally we just used the property as a base as we had plans to see Scotland but would have happily spent more time at the cottage.

The reason i have not given it 5 stars is because it didn't look like the floors had been cleaned prior to our arrival and also we found the dinnerware was dirty and had food stains on from previous users, this is just a minor problem and can easily be resolved by the owner by getting a better cleaner. Apart from that a lovely property finished to a high standard.

Great Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren Anfang Juni 2017 für 8 Nächte dort. Zu Beginn wurden uns alle Informationen von Adrian übermittelt. Auch während des Aufenthaltes war der Vermieter immer per mail erreichbar.

Der Ort Kippen ist klein aber mit allem was man fürs erste braucht. Eine Pub gleich neben an und gegenüber ein kleiner Supermarkt. Edinburgh, Glasgow oder die Highlands sind in ca. 45 Minuten mit dem Auto erreichbar. Aber auch Stirling mit seinem Castle sollte man sich ansehen.

Das Cottage ist gemütlich und gut ausgestattet und so für 4 Personen völlig ausreichend.

Wir haben hier tolle Tage verbracht und können die Unterkunft mit einer wirklich tollen Aussicht uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Many Thanks to Adrian und Jenny
