Just amazing the hospitality was second to none the extra little touches just topped off our stay

  • 5 of 5

Mallard cottages what can I say but just perfect would highly recommend this stay to anyone who is thinking of visiting Stirling or its surrounding areas the four days we stayed were just the perfect setting it had that homely feel with a touch of class

All attractions were on out door step I would highly recommend a visit to Stirling Castle which is steeped in history and a visit to the old town. Shopping is also on the doorstep of this beautiful cottage for any supplies needed

All in all one word describes Mallard Cottage amazing

Wonderful Cottage - Fantastic accomodation - Warm Welcome

  • 5 of 5

I can not express strongly enough how fantastic our stay was at Mallard Cottage. Wendy is a lovely host and once we were shown around the cottage we were left to enjoy the cosy, high tech, freshly baked scone, highly appointed cottage.

Go you will not be disappointed!

Oh and the views......

Convenient AND secluded ...

  • 5 of 5

This wee cottage is remarkably light, airy and spacious and has astounding views of the Ochil Hills, Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument and Cambuskenneth Abbey.

It is perfect for those who seek a combination of convenience (supermarket and amenities just 5 minutes away as are the main motorways to the rest of Scotland, making it a perfect location to explore...) and seclusion (the cottage stands alone surrounded by fields and farmsteads).

Heated floors and a log fire keep it cosy in winter and triple patio doors leading onto a stone patio and the garden will be perfect for the Scottish summer.

The owners have put a lot of thought into ensuring that the cottage is perfectly set up for guests and are close by, ready and willing to be of assistance ...

We thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, location AND hope to return there soon. :)
