Very Good

“Fantastic cottage”

Reviewed 1 May 2017

Third time at Mallard Cottage. We have been selfcatering for more than 30years and its the best ever.

“This cottage is a fabulous find”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2017

The cottage was very impressive. We didn't visit any attractions during our stay as we were in Scotland preparing for our daughters wedding. After each busy day we were able to enjoy the home from home feel that the cottage provided. The special little touches left for us by Wendy made the experience very pleasurable. We will definitely return and have told all our friends about our little find. Thank you for letting us share your cottage.

“This property is amazing! Great view out over stirling castle & the wallace monument & the house itself is equisit”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2017

This house is just a few minutes from everything you need, yet tucked away up a country lane with beautiful views in every direction. The owners left us lots of treats and the house itself was 1st class! No expense has been spared on the furnishings. The main living area is tiled with nice warm underfloor heating. The rooms are warm, clean and cosy and the decor is amazing throughout. There is a TV, DVD played with DVD's to choose from. A Wii with plenty of games and controls, and a shelf full of books in case you fancy a read. The local city of Stirling has lots of historic attractions, and we were able to travel to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Falkirk, all within 30 mins. We travelled 2hrs to Fort William, up through the West Highland Way (including Glencoe - which you MUST see!!) and saw some of the most amazing scenery on earth. Everything is close. The Scottish people are extremely friendly, and we found both this house and the various things we purchased generally, to be extremely good value for money. We have already begun recommending this property and part of Scotland to our friends. You will NOT be disappointed!

Owner's reply: Thank you Stephen, I am glad you enjoyed your stay.

“An amazing family holiday”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2015

This cottage was one in a million, We have never stayed in such a beautiful homely luxurious loved cottage. Wendy And Ian are such lovely helpful kind people, nothing was too much trouble, Wendy had thought of every lovely little touch possible. They invited us to come and see there calves that had not long been born on the farm, this was a wonderful experience for us all especially as my partners daughter was staying with us. The view was stunning, yet local amenities near by, supermarket, resturants, swimming pool............... We will return to Mallard cottage soon.

“Perfect location with great view of the Wallace Monument”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

Being located on a quiet road, only mnutes from a main traffic circle, gave us quick, easy and unparalleled access to all the site seeing we planned during our stay. The cottage was bright and airy and the fresh home made scones that were delivered, out of the oven, upon our arrival were terrific. We spent very relaxing evenings on th deck, watching the sun setting behnid the Wallace Monument.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review, it is much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Wendy

“The best holiday rental property we have ever stayed in!”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2014

We were delighted with this beautiful cottage let. set in beautiful surroundings close to the family farm. Wendy had thought of everything. We were welcomed with a lovely welcome pack, including an Easter egg! The cottage was extremely spacious, clean and had every modern convenience. It was extremely well decorated and the kitchen facilities were excellent. Its location makes it ideal for those who want to tour the Trossachs, St Andrews, Loch Lomond and Stirling City itself. We have a list of places to visit the next time we go. The price of the property was great value for money, we were so comfortable with every facility provided, indeed if the weather had been wet, we would have been more than happy to remain indoors, as there were plenty of books to read,games to play and a supply of DVDs. All in all the best self catering accommodation we have booked in the UK and we have already made a reservation for next Easter!

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review, it is much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Wendy

mallard cottage is outstanding, everything is new and modern, such a homely place to stay, the scenery is fantastic, really lovely place to stay, relaxing. would stay there again without a doubt, the owners of mallard cottage are so friendly and helpful.

“Spectacular!!! A paradise in the country!”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2013

Wendy and Ian were the perfect hosts. The baked scones shortly after our arrival were so yummy. This cottage was refurbished with love and care. Everything a traveler would want in a home away from home is here. The bed was so comfortable, it made it very hard to get out of every morning. The beautiful views of Stirling Castle and the William Wallace Memorial were awesome, especially when they are lit at night. After a long day of sight seeing, this cottage was paradise to return to. It is so homey and comfortable where you can put your feet up, watch TV, surf the net with the WiFi provided or listen to music. Many times we just stared out the window at the beautiful view. We cannot wait to return and tell all of our friends about this oasis in the country. Do not hesitate to rent this beautiful cottage, you will love every minute of it.

“The best kept secret in Scotland”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2013

This cottage was amazing the breathtaking views, the comfort and cleanliness of the home was better than any 5 star Four Seasons Hotel I have stayed in. It had everything to make this one of my best vacations in Scotland ever!!! Peaceful and away from hotels where everything is cookie cutter. Wendy and Ian are the most gracious hosts. I have booked my trip for next year with them again. SOOOOO now I guess the secret is out! BOOK now you won't regret it.

“Looks good on the website but in reality this cottage is amazing!”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2013

We had a truly wonderful and relaxing break in this fantastic cottage. Set in a peaceful and private location the cottage is the ideal base to visit the many nearby attractions of Scotland including Sterling Castle, The William Wallace Monument, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Loch Lomond. Wendy could not have been more hospitable even down to making sure our small dog was pampered. The cottage itself is of the highest standard with no expense spared on the fixtures and fittings we really did feel we were in five star accommodation.
