Overview

About the property

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 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.

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!

Excellent spacious garden flat in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The Courtyard ranks up there with all the holiday lettings we have every had. The flat itself is great, and it's a five minute walk to the city centre, with the castle and all of Stirling's other historic attractions also easily reachable on foot. The beds are very comfortable and the living area is a great family space. The kitchen is very well equipped, we cooked for 7 without problems. The secluded garden with barbecue and chairs would be fantastic in summer. Don't hesitate, go there!

Fantastic property in great location

  • 5 of 5

The Courtyard was everything that we wished for - spacious, comfortable, fitted out to an excellent standard and just a five minute walk from the city centre with all Stirling's attractions easily accessible on foot. Beds were good, easily enough kitchen equipment to cook for our party of seven, great living/dining space for family time. The secluded garden with barbecue and furniture would be great in the summer months. Kirsteen was great to deal with and security deposit was refunded promptly. Highly recommended and would definitely book this property again! Thanks for a great stay.

GREAT PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the accommodations, the support by the booking company and property manager. They were nicely furnished (with comfortable beds), modern bathroom and kitchen (with plenty of dishes and cooking equipment), and nice courtyard. The location is super, too! Very easy to walk into town or to Stirling Castle.

Fantastic place for family of 8.

  • 5 of 5

The Courtyard was an amazing place to stay for our family (4 adults and 4 children). It was spacious and clean and a superb location for our holiday. The outside area provided a nice safe haven when the children wanted to play as it is secure. Plenty of information leaflets supplied and the welcome pack was so welcome after a long journey. Thanks to Kirsteen and Murray who from booking the holiday to leaving, at some point helped us with information. Definitely will return. The courtyard was like a home from home.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

The Courtyard was a fantastic place for our family vacation. With the bedrooms and bathrooms, everyone had their own space. We used Stirling as the base for our stay in Scotland. The city's location to Edinburgh and the Highlands was ideal. We could not have picked a better place to stay than The Courtyard.
