Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday home in Stirling - Castleview

6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, large south facing garden, billiard room, drawing room

Situated in one of Stirling’s most picturesque Victorian suburbs amid broad tree lined avenues with views to the Old Town skyline, Castleview is a recently refurbished detatched Victorian Villa built in the 1880s which still retains it’s original, stylish character.

Castleview is a large, 6 bedroom family friendly house with large enclosed private garden situated overlooking a garden square and a 2 minute walk from Stirling’s King’s Park with playing fields, golf, course, tennis courts, children’s play park and skate park. This property can sleep up to 16 people as there is use of a sofa bed in the smaller living room. There is a small additional charge for the use of the sofa bed.

The house has a large kitchen with Aga and electric cooker, large sitting room with open fire, further rear sitting/family room, dining room for 14 and billiard room on the second floor with full size snooker table.

Three of the bedrooms, all doubles, are en-suite with an additional shared bathroom and 3 separate WC's, one upstairs and 2 downstairs. There is an original Victorian bathroom upstairs with Victorian bath and shower from when the house was built. This cannot be used but the room has a working toilet and sink. There is a further double bedroom, one with zip and link beds which can either be 2 x single or one super kingsize bed and a twin room. The dressing room, situated off of the master en-suite room and with separate access from the hall, also has a single bed and a pull out trundle bed.

The original billiard room provides a great room equipped with billiard table, board games, books and a separate downstairs television room has Freeview TV and a selection of DVDs and videos.

The extensive rear south facing garden contains has a large south facing sun terrace with BBQ and garden furniture

Castleview has a calm, quiet feel, but yet it is only five minutes walk from Stirling town centre and 10 minutes walk from the station. The amenities of both Glasgow and Edinburgh can be reached in 45 minutes by train or car.

Stirling is situated at the centre of Scotland and it has direct travel links to many of the major cities in Scotland – including Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. There are many attractions in the local area, including, an historic castle which was believed to be the “key to Scotland” in medieval days, many nature walks and hill walking opportunities, numerous fine dining and entertainment establishments and the World’s only boat wheel – the Falkirk Wheel.

There are also many attractions for children all over the local area as well as shops, bakeries and sports opportunities galore as well as a fantastic safari park. There is also a microbrewery, golf course and fishing area should the adults wish to relax too!

a great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and located in a ideal location for exploring both Stirling as well as local areas.

The view of the castle from the living room was stunning and the kitchen gorgeous.

The owner/rental agency/gardener/hired staff were very helpful, available and kind.

We loved the back yard (and lucked into a week of perfect weather) and having outdoor space like that made a huge difference for the kids to run and play.

I'd recommend this house to any large group (we were three separate families and there was plenty of room to spare).

Highly recommend this house for a vacation rental.

Great house, extremely pleased with weekend

  • 5 of 5

We visited the house with a group of friends, and had a great weekend. All the rooms were to a high standard, with plenty of bathrooms. The kids loved to play hide and seek in the house!

Very close to the town centre, and a nice walk up to the castle for nice views of the area.

Best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Castleview in October 2015 with our entire family and a few friends. We came by boat from Holland and drove through a beautiful Scotland with perfect sunny weather to Castleview.

When we arrived and entered the house we were all in amazement of this gorgeous house.

The purpose of our trip to Scotland and Castleview was to make a memorable trip especially for our parents and this we have achieved due to the lovely people of Stirling, the nice surroundings, pubs, castle and a stay in a great house!

We hope to visit again in the future.

An unforgettable 60th Birthday Weekend in Castleview!

  • 5 of 5

My wife's 60th Birthday meant a special celebration, so after much researching we rented Castleview for the weekend. Along with 5 other couples we had 3 nights of fun in a great venue.

Castleview is deceptively big, with a great sitting room and an equally big dining room. The sitting room has an open fire, which really kept us warm. Likewise the kitchen has an Aga, which was both warm and really good fun to cook on.

We did our own food on the Friday evening, and brought in professional caterers on the Saturday night. We did our own Murder Mystery over dinner on the Saturday evening which was a great laugh.

The rooms are all well appointed, with most en suite, and bed linen and towels are provided.

All in all a great venue and so close to Stirling town centre (5 minute walk) for anything else you may require.

We would all recommend the house for a big get-together and indeed would return for future visits.

Castleview is at the very heart of Stirling City centre; a two minute walk to all the attractions within the historic City: the magnificent Castle and rich Scottish heritage centre, the Old City Jail, the Tollbooth, a modern shopping centre, small quaint arcades and several supermarkets.

The historical Bannockburn Heritage Centre is only a 20-minute walk from the city centre and there is also a good selection of both modern and traditional pubs and restaurants in the area. Nick Nairn’s famous cookery school is also a mere 20 minute drive away in nearby Port of Menteith.

Golf: Golf is available at every turn: Kings Park’s own course and at least another five within Falkirk district, a 15 min drive away. Slightly further afield are the world famous Gleneagles and St Andrew’s Old Course.
