Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Stirling - The Courtyard

Luxurious, converted Victorian villa in the heart of historic Stirling

The Courtyard is a bright, spacious self-catering property which can comfortably sleep and dine eight people. It is located in the prestigious Kings Park area of Stirling, a city at the heart of Scotland.

Recently refurbished and modernised, The Courtyard shows a sharp contrast from the external appearance of a sandstone villa built nearly 200 years ago, to that of a fully modernised minimalist modern interior. The property exclusively occupies the entire garden floor of this beautiful semi-detached Victorian villa and the garden offers privacy and tranquillity; guests can enjoy the garden with the use of extensive garden furniture, BBQ equipment and outdoor games.

Accommodation comprises of; a bright open plan kitchen complete with fully fitted modern appliances; a utility room with dishwasher, washing machine & tumble drier; an open plan living and dining area with ample seating for 8 round the main table and sleeping arrangements for the same number. It has 2 king size bedrooms, 1 super king size or twin (zip and link beds) and a bunk bed room for children or adults under 5 foot 4 inches.

Bookings at Easter, during summer and at Christmas are 7 nights from Friday

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 lovely and conveniently place to stay in Stirling

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 lovely days spent at the Courtyard. It was well equipped, very clean and a great place to stay. The communication leading up to our stay was excellent. The only downside was the taps in bathroom were stiff.

Great place to stay while discovering Scotland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Courtyard from September the 7th to the 12th. Everything was such a pleasure: the place is really warm, cozy and well equiped and decorated. The garden is such a delight for the sunny days. Perfectly located near the centre of Stirling, and getting to the big supermarkets by car is really easy from the house. We definetely reccomend this to families, people with children because the house is really a great place to stay while discovering Scotland.

Sterling, gotta go

  • 5 of 5

This place was great, close to historic Sterling, but an uphill walk to the tremendous castles, but everything is an uphill walk to the castle. The ground floor apartment was bright and roomy for 6. This city, just an hour from Edinburgh is a must see. Full of history yet not so full of tourists. I recommend both the Courtyard and this great city. JHB.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave us such a great review! Great to hear you enjoyed your trip to Stirling. We are very fortunate here as there is so much to see on our door step. The uphill walk to the castle is worth it, but you can always stop off for a coffee or drink on the way to recharge!

An excellent location and facilities at The Courtyard

  • 5 of 5

Our family had been fortunate to be invited to a wedding in the beautiful city of Stirling and so we decided to find accommodation in a central location so that we could walk to and from the Wedding and Reception. We also wanted to spend some time in Scotland as we had previously not visited the country. The Courtyard was ideally placed for both the wedding and for sight-seeing, with the train station handy for visiting Edinburgh and easily accessible motorways for seeing Loch Lomand etc.

The apartment was well-equipped and very clean. We found the beds very comfortable. The two off-road parking spaces were very useful because we were joined later in the week by our daughter, her husband and child. The apartment is also spacious and a lot of thought has obviously gone into the planning of the layout and facilities. All-in-all a very good base for our lovely stay in bonnie Scotland.

The Courtyard 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 and the Tollbooth. The historical Bannockburn Heritage Centre is only a 20-minute walk from the city centre. There is a good selection of pubs and restaurants in the area. Wallace’s monument is a 2 min drive; on the way, stop off and visit the Old Stirling Bridge.

The surrounding countryside is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts: walking, cycling and paragliding are all on offer on the nearby Ochil Hills. Slightly further away are The Trossachs, Callander, Loch Lomond National Park, Glasgow and Edinburgh providing, therefore, the ideal central touring base for your holiday.

Golf being 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.
