Description from owner


This well furnished, cosy 'home from home' is ideal for a peaceful getaway in a peaceful town in the heart of Scotland nestling at the foot of the scenic Ochil Hills. With two bedrooms, spacious living area, well equipped kitchen and well appointed bathroom, it provides an excellent base for exploring the activities and history of Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire.

The apartment has Fibre Broadband Wi-Fi, TV, DVD and CD player , a Wii and XBox (with games) and an excellent variety of books and DVDs. Fully equipped kitchen with Senseo coffee machine and all the cooking equipment you could ever need and a dishwasher.. We also have a washing machine and tumble dryer. For business travellers we also have a desk and work area within the main living space.

For keen walkers the Ochil Hills provide breath-taking views and for golfers the apartment is ideally located for access to many golf courses. The apartment is only 45 minutes from both Edinburgh and Glasgow making it an ideal base to visit these cities too. It is located only 10 minutes drive from Stirling University and only 30 minutes from Gleneagles.

The central location within the town provides easy access to a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants as well as a banks, post office and other important facilities. The town has no train station but a regular bus service takes you directly to Stirling Railway Station in less than 30 minutes. We welcome pets and their owners.

“Alva Apartment”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2018

Very comfortable apartment to stay in and use as a base to go sight-seeing. Very much home from home. Lawrence met us when we arrived and was very welcoming and friendly and even checked that everything was ok while we were there. A very quiet area with beautiful scenery.

Owner's reply: Thank you Sharon for the kind review, very glad you enjoyed your stay in Alva. Lawrence

“A perfect homely well equipped flat”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2018

This was a lovely, comfortable, well equipped and homely apartment. We really enjoyed our weekend here and will definitely be booking it again. The owner and his son were extremely helpful and we could not fault our stay at all, it was perfect. Thanks Richard

“Hidden Gem in the Hills”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2017

What a fantastic little find. Hidden away in the lovely little town of Alva is this perfect little flat set in the Scottish low lands, it has beautiful views and walks on its door step. About 45 easy drive minutes to Glasgow or Edinburgh. Lawrence was there to meet us and was on call whenever we felt we may have needed him. He checked in via text to check we were ok and if we needed anything, we had Tea, coffee, milk, teacakes and fruit on our arrival. The flat has everything we needed and was equipped with everything we needed for a long or short stay. We would recommend this to everyone and would absolutely visit again.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for the review, makes all the difference when we get feedback and delighted you enjoyed your visit to Scotland, very much hope you can make it back again. Lawrence
