Cosy Cottages On Scottish Country Estate - Stable Cottage Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)



Updated: 21-Sep-2016
Cottages in Dunblane, Scotland - Peaceful Location, Amazing Sunsets/Scenery

Barn & Stable Cottage both sleep four in a double and a twin room. One cottage has been recently refurbished but still retains its old country charm, with open fire and wooden beams. The second cottage was converted from Estate barns to a cosy cottage with modern facilities. The location, in the Ochil hills, feels remote but is only 4 miles from nearest town and 1 mile to a friendly pub/restaurant.

An excellent week in Stable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. It was clean and well maintained and the beds were really comfy. The provisions Bev left for us were very welcome and the gooseberry jelly was delicious. Drew very kindly left kindling and peat for us and we had a few roaring fires in the evening. The grounds were lovely to walk in and Dunblane is very close with a variety of places for coffee and food. There is a very good butcher if you choose to cook and the Sherrifmuir Inn is fabulous if you don't (600 yards from cottage). The Trossachs are within easy reach as are many historical sites. Don't buy sandwiches if you visit Loch Katrine! We would highly recommend Stable Cottage and hope to visit again next year.

Nice simple cottage for rural Scottish holiday

  • 5 of 5

Description was accurate and location lovely. Cottage was clean and comfortable. For 4 people a dishwasher would be an advantage! The manager was friendly and helpful, internet was free and pets were allowed.Main attraction is walking but Dunblane, Bridge of Alan and Stirling and Perth are accessible by car. Wallace `Monument and Stirling Castle can be visited and many other attractions further afield. A pub on Sherriffmuir is within walking distance. Would recommend this cottage to friends who enjoy a peaceful very rural Scottish holiday with suitable clothes for the great outdoors!

Delightful cottage, lovely rural setting.

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable, directions to cottage were good and the facilities were as advertised. Bev made us very welcome with a tour of the very clean and well presented cottage and to contact her if we had any questions or problems during our stay. Bev was very approachable and hospitable. The homemade bread, delicious jam and local eggs on the kitchen table, very comfortable super king bed (good quality bed linen and towels), comfortable sofas to relax on (we're tall so it was nice to have decent sized seating) overall ambience of the cottage including the welcome and the care taken of the surrounding areas around the cottage was very good and we will definitely be recommending Cauldhame to friends and family.

Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was really well equipped, cosy, and clean. Perfect for our family of four. The open fire was lovely. The setting is so tranquil yet close enough to amenities not to feel isolated. Perfect location for exploring both the East or the West side of Scotland.

We'll definitely be back.

Very comfortable cottage in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Stable Cottage was a wonderful place to stay, in a great peaceful location with fantastic views. We received a warm welcome from Bev, and she showed us around the cottage which was lovely, clean and well appointed. Bev also left some much appreciated provisions for us. The space was perfect for our week long stay. The cottage was far enough away from town to be peaceful, with great access to walks and moorland, but close enough for a short drive to the shops and many great local attractions. The bed was very comfortable, and we had everything we needed for our stay. Drew went out of his way to help us when our car battery went dead, and helped us get back on the road. Overall we really felt relaxed and enjoyed our stay and we would be happy to return. The mansion on the estate would be a fantastic place to have an extended family holiday too.
