4 Bedroom/3 Bathroom Traditional Farmhouse With All Mod Cons
About Gavin/Linzi Bryce
I have lived on this farm my whole life, except going away to school/college/travelling etc and am now the 4th generation farming The Cowden Farm. I live here with my wife Linzi and two boys Frazer and Euan
Gavin/Linzi Bryce purchased this Farmhouse in 2007
Why Gavin/Linzi Bryce chose Stirling
When you live in such a beautiful area I thought the best way to share it was to build a new house with all mod cons as traditionally as possible.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The location, only 3 miles from Stirling. Building a house from scratch allowed me the flexibility to plan and build a house for everyone, from an extended family to a working party. There are no steps at all from the car park all the way through the ground floor of the house making it ideal for wheelchair users.

Home away from home
This house was perfect for our needs. It was large enough for our family, and very comfortable. We loved the farm setting, as it was peaceful and lovely. The location was ideal and allowed for day trips to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Gavin and Linzie were nearby if we needed anything. Very hospitable. We would stay here again.
Beautiful rural location yet easy to get to places
Had an amazing week with the family here over the Christmas break, the property had everything we needed with plenty of space. I would definitely recommend this place and definitely will stay again as it was also very close to Bridge of Allan where my brother in-law lives so it was great for visiting!
Great house and location for a family
We had a great stay. We loved being near Stirling but still feeling like we had space and were out in the country. My daughter loved the cows and the playroom. The house worked great. Thanks.
Thanks for your kind review,it was a pleasure having your family as guests.Please let your daughter know that the cows are all in the fluffy straw bedded courts now ready to have their calves.
Home away from home
An outstanding “home away from home”, the coach house was both bucolic and inviting, nurtured us in the midst of nature. Nestled between mountains amidst fields of wheat and cattle this place is truly Sterling! Linzy and Gavin you are class and thanks for sharing your home with us.
Well appointed and conveniently located from Stirling train station (short taxi ride - remember to call Sandy with Skycap at 01786 818284, amazing service!) a house you can recharge every night as you get prepared for the next day exploring the country. I would strongly recommend this place to any family looking for an awesome place to stay.
Scotland and hospitality are synonymous. From the moment we landed in Glasgow, the friendly smiles and the caring and kind attitude of Scots was magnetic. Our family of ten enjoyed the beauty of the Lochs of Lomond and Ness and many in-between, the picturesque Glens and Bens with pinkish purple blooms of Rose Bay Willow Herb, Thistle and the budding Heather, castles of yesteryears and the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, round of golf in Stirling and the raw beauty of Carnoustie. Richard McKay of Tiny Tartan Tours was a superb guide. Seek him out at 07900255881.
As a nation you changed our perspective in life and made us better human beings. We took lot of pictures, precious memories and a little bit of each of you and cherish Scottish people and your culture forever!
Thanks for making this one of our most memorable trips of our lifetime.
PS: Linzy is a nurse and helped us when we needed it most and the NHS care was second to none. Thanks!
Wonderful and Relaxing, hosts Great!
The cottage was roomy, clean and had every thing we needed. Gavin and Linzi were so pleasant and informative. The location is perfect for day trips to so many sites. Our daughter and her family joined us for almost a week of our 11 nights stay. Our granddaughters LOVED the cows. We recommend this very highly.
Lynn/Rebecca and family
Thank you for your comments,I am so happy you had a great time and the house and location met your expectations.
The house has been designed to cater for an extended family and it was so nice to meet the three generations of your family.
Don't miss this chance to enjoy the country!
I have been in Stirling for work since the beginning of April and this is my third rental. I’m glad I saved this one for the end. My other two were in Stirling and Bridge of Allan, which I enjoyed. This one gave me an opportunity to get out of the city and experience the country.
I grew up and still live in the Midwest in the US – the farm belt. While I didn’t grow up on a farm, many of my friends did. Watching the mama cows and the calves, being surrounded by plowed fields, well, it was a bit nostalgic. It was also peaceful and relaxing.
The Coach House is a lovely, well-appointed home. It’s in a great location to do day trips (but I had already done mine). Thank you, Gavin and Linzi, for your hospitality. To all those who come after me, I know you’ll have a wonderful stay.
Thank you Mary for your kind review,I am delighted The Coach House met your expectations .There is no doubt the countryside is looking glorious at this time of year.There are many holiday homes in the surrounding area which is a good thing to keep the standard of accommodation to a level our guests expect.
Have a safe journey home.
