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 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!

Castleview is a friendly family home.

  • 4 of 5

Castleview is a lovely big house suitable for large family gatherings. Thee generous size of the kitchen, dining room and living room makes socialising easy, before retiring to the comfortable bedrooms. The house has stunning views of Stirling's famous castle. This house can be enjoyed any time of the year. B

Trip Away With Friends

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 15 friends from university booked Castleview for a weekend away in Stirling. The house had everything we all needed with comfortable and impressive rooms for everyone. The customer service was fantastic, being able to contact the owner at any time. Great value for money, highly recommend.

A very special weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend in for a friends "special" Birthday. Castleview was a fantastic house for a large group of people, the location is just a short walk from the heart of Stirlings shops and bars. Can't wait to go back for longer next time.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you had an enjoyable time at Castleview. We have lots of guests who book this property for special birthdays and we always find the house lends itself well to this sort of occasion. The proximity to town is also one of its unique points as when in the property and gardens you don't feel like the town is only a few hundred meters away! We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

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.
