About the property

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 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.

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.

A lovely, comfortable, rambling house enjoyed by all.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family of 11 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castelview, even though it was only for a couple of nights. Toby showed us around and was very patient with the excited family exploring. It was a little taste of luxury from a bygone era but with all the expected modern day comforts laid on. The house seemed to go on and on and the children loved exploring the nooks, crannies, and passages hither and yon; they spent quite a bit of time in the fine games room. The garden was a delight with expansive lawn and fruiting trees. I can see this being very suitable for extended families where the cost can be divided. The children have asked to come again for an extended visit, so we shall need to start saving up!

Perfect in every way

We loved our stay at Castleview! The view across the park is truly beautiful. The house is nicely appointed, and we were very comfortable. The walk into Stirling is a nice 10minute walk. We highly recommend this property.

Excellent property - great location

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples, 3 children, 3 grandmothers) recently spent a week at Castleview. The house was well appointed, with plenty of space for everyone. The proximity of Stirling town center allowed us to access all we needed without renting a car. Stirling was a wonderful introduction to Scotland: the castle, the old town jail, the walk to the Wallace Monument, and we even had the opportunity to do some dancing at the Summer Ceilidh in the Tolbooth! Highly recommend the M&S food market in the Thistle shopping center, and Roundabout Travel if you need transportation for a large group. We had a few minor issues the first day, but Allan (owner) addressed them promptly. We very much enjoyed our stay!

Gorgeous house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Great house, garden and very well equipped.(all kitchen utensils, constant hot water, coal for a fire etc.) Only criticism is with the master bedroom. The decor was a little mismatched but fit for purpose. (All the other rooms were tastefully done) My main problem was with the bed ..... it was a 4ft double!!! I thought that in a such a huge room there would have already been a 4ft6' bed or s king. The ensuite was a wet-room with water taking a long time to drain after shower, little annoying.

Otherwise we had a lovely family stay, everyone had loads of space and could have accommodated way more. Garden was spectacular and the girls lived feeding the squirrels every morning. Town was walking distance and overlooked a lovely green.

Amazing property, perfect for our family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

With many holiday rentals a leap of faith is required and particularly with a large family group of 14 there is always some trepidation as you arrive. However, Castleview did not disappoint. The house is clean, beautiful and spacious. The kitchen is perfect for cooking for everyone (I am now considering getting an Aga!) and the dining room seats everyone with ease. We had a 3 generational group aged 4 to 75 and everyone was able to have their own space. The local Sainsbury's is very convenient by car and the town, with castle and jail is a quick walk. There is a great view of the castle from the house and also a great view of the house from the top of the jail tower.

The back garden was a good size for the kids to play in and the large King's park is just around the corner.

Overall a quality property that did not disappoint.

Suitable for large families

  • 4 of 5

This is a large home situated walking distance to town and it is well suited for large families or groups. The 6 plus bedrooms are great for everyone wanting their own space. Living areas are large as well as kitchen and garden. It has a closed floor plan so all rooms are individually situated. Can walk to castle but it is uphill just about all they way so if anyone has mobility issues I would suggest using a car to reach the castle.
