“Lovely New Year Retreat”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this lovely cottage over New Year 2014/15 for a week. It was a great location from which to visit Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow. You need a car to get to the cottage, but Croy station is close by and has a very good service to the main towns. Kilsyth is a modest but pleasant village, with a couple of good pubs (we liked the Coachman) and a Co-op for food, and there are some nice walks right on the doorstep.

The cottage itself is scrupulously clean, excellently equipped and very cosy. We found it a lovely place from which to see a little bit of Scotland, and also to relax and unwind for a week. The view from the door is fab, and the scenery impressive even despite the wintry weather.

The owner Peter is very friendly and knowledgeable, and always on hand with advice without being obtrusive. The guest book is full of recommendations from visitors from all over the world. Heeruh the dog is adorable.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this exceptionally good value cottage as a place to unwind, a romantic break and/or a well located based for exploring Scotland.

“Absolutely perfect”

We stayed here over christmas to get away from the Christmas chaos at home as I am currently 8 month pregnant. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place. Everything was there to make our stay perfect and every little detail had been thought of. Peter who owns the cottage is fantastic and was always on hand to help with anything. The views from the property are amazing and we even had a sunny Christmas Day. The cottage is not too far from shops, pubs and only 30 minutes away from glasgow city centre but it is far enough away to enough the peace and quiet away from busy life. Book this place now you won't regret it! We will be coming back next year!

“Stunning!”

The location and accommodation are absolutely stunning. There is so much attention to detail in the cottage which is beautifully refurbished with all sorts of extra touches. The views are wonderful - great walks from the cottage and only a few minutes by car to the station at Croy to get to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Peter is very welcoming and we had a fantastic few days and can't wait to come back! Thank you!

“A brilliant cottage, location and host”

This was the perfect base for our attending the Commonwealth Games and we feel very privileged to have stayed there. The cottage was like a home from home and we had everything we could possibly need and more including fantastic views. Peter was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for him. Heeruh also gave a warm welcome on our arrival and came to say 'hello' every day. We hope to return again to enable us to explore the area more.

“A place to keep for yourself”

The cottage satisfies your every need for a relaxing stay and to find the real Scotland. It is spotless, comfortable and very thoughtfully appointed with a well stocked cupboard to suit all your cooking needs. It is amazing as to what you don,t need to bring because it is there.
The location is everything, so near to Glasgow but all you see is rolling hills and all you hear is the owls.
Peter is perfect, very unobtrusively helpful. I have tried to think of a constructive criticism - I can,t nor will you, I promise.
