“First class, high standard, pet friendly, wheel chair accessible, stunning views, rural location but close to amenities”

This cottage is truly superb. 5 stars and more. The attention to detail makes your stay so comfortable, they have thought of everything. High quality fixtures, fittings and accessories. We wanted for nothing.

Plenty of easy parking on the drive.

The owner welcomes you on arrival and you can tell they want you to enjoy your stay. She took the time to explain the cottage and how to contact her if needed. The owner lives next door and is available if needed but leaves you to get on with your holiday .
There are homemade scones to welcome you with jam, wine, milk and butter in the fridge, eggs, flowers and chocolates on the side. Even the dog had dog chews left out for him.

Mallard cottage is a bungalow all on one level its very clean and warm. There is a log burner but the under floor heating is so efficient that we didnt need to light the burner.
The kitchen is fully fitted with high quality cook ware and appliances.

There are two large double bedrooms, the beds are extremely comfortable.

The garden is enclosed so safe for your dog.

The most impressive thing about this accomodation is the view. Stirling castle, Wallace monument and the Ochills. The sunsets are amazing.
A short walk over the field behind the cottage and you are on the banks of the river Forth.

The location is rural on a farm, however amenities are just minutes away and easily accesible. The park and ride bus to Stirling town centre is at the end of the farm lane next to a supermarket and an out of town retail estate. Stirling itself is a short drive away.

We used the cottage as a central base and toured out each day, it was perfect for this type of holiday and you always felt relaxed and happy when you came back to the cottage.

We have stayd in many places and agree that this was the best yet. The photos dont really do it justice, its wonderful, high class and with the most amazing view. No expense has been spared on the furnishings and accessories.
Has superfast wifi and the TV even has Netflix.

There are useful tourist guide books and leaflets left to help you.

100% recommend this cottage and have already told friends about it.

“Absolute Perfection - We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 19 January 2017 for a stay in April 2015

Wow - this cottage was amazing!
From the friendly welcome on arrival to the home make scones, fresh bread, upmarket coffee, wine and milk in the fridge (it's the small touches that make it special) along with the high standard of furnishes and fixtures - it is more than a home from home!
Only a short 10 minute drive to the hub of the city of Stirling but remote enough to feel like you were out in the middle of nowhere.
Looking out of the beautiful living room and kitchen windows, the views were breathtaking.
Seeing the Wallace monument at night was a highlight and during the day the Ochil hills dominating the landscape to the north.
This cottage is 5 star accommodation, take it from a well seasoned traveler.
Tried to book for the summer of 2017 and it's fully booked - I can see why!
Absolute Perfection - well done and keep up the fantastic service.
You are head and shoulders above any accommodation in the area.

“First class, immaculate and welcoming”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Mallard cottage has fantastic views of the Wallace monument and Stirling castle, rural but so close to amenities and places of interest. Wendy is a helpful hostess and offers so many personal touches, newly baked scones and jams, beautiful roses, wine to mention but a few things that make you feel so welcome. I will highly recommend this delightful cottage to colleagues, family and friends, and will be visiting again. Thank you for everything Wendy, we spent a fabulous Xmas.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

What a gem! We wanted for nothing as everything had been thought of. Lots of blankets, a well equipped kitchen with everything you need. The bathroom was absolutely perfect for our little ones with the large bath and the heated tiles were fantastic. The. Beds were so comfortable. I wish I could give this more then 5 stars. Thank you for all your help Wendy and the homemade scones were delicious.
