Newholme is a large self-catering holiday house in Stirling, Scotland, just a minute's walk from the charming village of Cambusbarron and five minutes drive from the centre of town. We are a family friendly property and at over 5000 square feet, Newholme has room for everyone. Enjoy movies on the flat screen television in the sitting room or hide away with a book in front of the open fire in the spacious drawing room. Our dining room can seat up to 12 people and the kitchen is well stocked and set up for entertaining. When weather permits, enjoy roaming around the expansive garden and barbecuing in the evening.

The fully fitted kitchen is perfectly suited for entertaining large parties and we've had lots of great celebrations at Newholme. A popular option is to use one of our two local Cordon Bleu trained cooks who regularly provide either special occasion or weekly catering options.

Off street, secluded parking for 5-6 cars.

Wifi is available and is free.

Dogs are welcome with prior arrangement.

During the summer months, if all has gone well with the planting, you can pick your own herbs and vegetables.

Newholme House is a perfect base for exploring Scotland. We are just 45 minutes away from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Unfortunately, we do not accommodate stag or hen parties.

"Wonderful, clean, spacious home"

Newholme is as stated above, clean, spacious and comfortable for a group who wants to stay together. The house was not ready when we arrived due to an extended cleaning being done after the previous… More

Dear Karen
many thanks for taking the time to place your review with us, and delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I had noticed the same issue with your bed when i inspected the weekend you left and stripped the whole bed out to find that the foot was broken...hence the lean into the middle. Normally our guests comment on how comfortable the zip and link beds are and so I am very sorry that I did not pick up this should have told me as it was easy to resolve and has been and I am sorry this detracted from your stay.. Flick and Amanda are very popular and so we think that we will promote them more on the website and next year we hope to be operating our own tours from Newholme, and other local properties so that may well be on the web site soon as well.
We do have instructions for the microwave in the drawer next to the microwave, and i must have not told apologies. We intend to replace the top section of the cooker with ceramic identifications on it to avoid the temperature issue. however this is quite a major job and as we are fully booked then we need to to this in our off peak season, although I am not sure when that will be as we are fully booked now util October!
We will however resolve this issue and hope it did not detract from your stay. We really enjoyed having you here and thank you so much for leaving the house so clean. We were finished by check in time well before the 4.30 pm deadline!!! many thanks.

"Grand old family house with style."

This is a delightful, comfortable and spacious house , wonderful for children. Back door into the garden keeps wellies and raincoats away from the living room! A terrific kitchen is fun to work in f… More

Dear Joan
Many thanks for your review and as always we are more than happy when we know you enjoyed it so much. we did try supplying paper napkins at the start of last season however we are not sure if some of our guests were using them for what they were supposed to be for or for something else, we went through so many, even though we were buying in bulk , that we decided that it was a very expensive affair. I suppose we could do it again and just leave out a certain amount each week... so Nikki and I will have a look at that.
We hope we might see you again some time.
Regards David and Nikki.

"A perfect location for a family gathering."

Our entire family of 16 from Canada stayed here for a week in July 2014 using both the House and the adjoining annex. We had come to introduce the next generation to Scotland and to explore our famil… More

Dear David
I am so glad that it was all worth it, as you must have put in a lot of work to get it all together. Also it looked like the party was a great success and as you said the weather was perfect, and it actually continues to be so!
We hope it will inspire you to come back sooner rather than later, and I am so glad you loved the house.
My best regards David

"Wonderful spacious house perfect for a large party of golfers"

We were a party of 9 "golf girls" (ages 44-74) staying for a long weekend and a warm welcome awaited us at Newholme House along with some delicious home-made cupcakes - a lovely touch! This … More

Dear Lesley
Many thanks for taking the time to review is quite difficult to find at first and we are I think going to get a much larger sign, the owner however does not want one that is too obtrusive but we need to get one that can be easily seen. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and I think the weather helped and allowed you to have the BBQ. Hopefully we might see you again soon.
Best regards David and Nikki
PS i am delighted you liked my cup cakes!!

"Beautiful house, fantastic time had by all"

Ten of us stayed at Newholme House for the weekend and had a great time. None of the bedrooms are small and we had a couple of beds to spare. The pictures of the inside of the house really don't … More

Glad you enjoyed the house and sorry I over looked you too much, we have a plan to soften the gable with planting and put in a tree that will cover that end,this time last year the hedge was 8 inches shorter so will feed it all summer, meantime I am glad you enjoyed your party. and look forward to seeing you again. Many thanks for all the recycling of which there was plenty, and leaving the house so clean. I sadly forgot to tell you about the composting for my friends pigs just up the road. Next time you can contribute to their healthy eating. I met one of the locals who was in the paper shop on Sunday morning and she was laughing as she enjoyed the fireworks, we will just go for 9.00pm then the next time.

"Lovely house for a family get together"

We stayed here for a family get together for 3 nights last weekend - 6 adults and 6 children. The house is fantastic and just what we needed at a very reasonable price. David met us when we arrived … More

So glad that you had such a good time and survived the bad weather which was a shame. We are looking into upgrading the bathrooms in April so I hope that when you come back you will see a difference. I would also like to thank you for leaving the house so clean and well looked after and we would love to see you come back again..perhaps in the autumn when we think the weather can be much better.

"Wonderful weekend in a wonderful house!"

We spend a long weekend at Newholme celebrating my fiancé and his friends 30th birthdays in January 2014. There were 10 of us in total (5 couples) and the house never once felt cramped! As this was a… More

heh guys and girls, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay...certainly sounded like you had a good time!! which is the idea after all, and glad the boys enjoyed it as well. I have sent the shirt back today and hope you get it soon, if not I think I have a trace on it. Meantime thank you so much for leaving the house in such a great condition, which was such a help to us the next day, and we would love to see you again !!
