Excellent accommodation and hostess

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 3 teenage children stayed at Ochil Cottage for a week and enjoyed the experience immensely. The house was clean, well kept, spacious and had all we needed. It was also in a central location with easy access to many historic sites like Stirling Castle, the Bruce and Wallace Monuments and various historic battle fields. It is also an easy drive to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond, the Trossachs, the highlands and more. Our hostess Anne was both gracious and accommodating. If you're looking for a pleasant and relaxing place to stay and something that's close to everything yet very quiet and private, this is a great choice.

Maison agréable et spacieuse, l'avantage pour les enfants: tout est clos et à proximité d'un grand terrain de foot. Endroit tranquille à proximité de tout, a 5 min à pieds du centre de Bannockburn. A 5 min en voiture de Stirling.

Brilliant in Bannockburn

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ochil Cottage for 13 nights and loved it, clean well maintained and comfortable beds. It is not easy to book accommodation from the other side of the world but can assure future renters of this house we were not disappointed. Anne was a gracious and helpful host. We spent several days at the British Open Golf at St Andrews and hours drive each way albeit very scenic. Took the train to both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Dined at Wetherspoons in Stirling - several times - great meals, Thank you Anne it was nice meeting up with you kind regards

Centrally located, great for families.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great centrally located house. The fenced in garden was great for the kids and dogs and they really enjoyed the ride on toys. The kitchen was well equipped and the owner was next door and readily available if we needed help. We really enjoyed our stay.
