“Welcoming, Warm and Modern Cottage”
Reviewed 19 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Thank you Wendy for your very warm welcome to your lovely cottage. It is modern, very warm and welcoming and very clean. We had everything we needed and more besides. It is very close to Stirling and major roads. But situated very well so it's very quite.Very easy to get out and about from there. Within walking distance of Plean Country Park. There is a shop and pub a mile down the road. Most main shops are in Stirling, but there is an M&S in Stirling services just down the road. It has lovely views over countryside. Even though we stayed over the New Year period the underfloor heating was superb we actually had to turn it down as we got to warm. There was four of us staying in the cottage and have to say having two bathrooms one with a shower in and one with a bath with shower over it was very useful. We had plenty of room. Bedrooms superb and comfortable beds plenty of storage. Large lounge yet very cosy. Lovely kitchen/dining room. Decoration very well thought out. We certainly wouldn't hesitate to go back. Thank you again Wendy.

“Wonderful Cottage”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Of the many cottages in Britain & Ireland we have stayed in over the years, Muirmailing Cottage is easily the best. It is spacious, beautifully furnished and maintained with everything we needed for a comfortable week's stay provided. Wendy was very welcoming and helpful and always available if we needed anything but we never had any problems. We chose this accommodation mainly because of it's location, which is close to the motorway network. This allows easy access to Stirling, Glasgow, The Trossachs, Perth, Fife, St Andrews, the Lothians & Edinburgh. Many major tourist attractions are therefore achievable as a day-trip. Although close to the motorways, the cottage itself is in a quiet rural area with nice views. There is a plant growing business on the site but this caused us no disruption. There are also friendly cats, dogs and horses on the site, which is a bonus for animal lovers.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 28 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My husband and I stayed at Muirmailing with our young children (2.5 years and 1 year old) for a week in March. The cottage is a lovely mix of the old building with lots of modern yet homely features inside. It's set up very well for children - we were able to request a highchair, stair gates and cot which saved us packing those bulky extras! It is also stocked with everything you could need - all kitchen and bathroom products - with a system that you replace what you finish. This works brilliantly.
Wendy and Graham are very welcoming and gave us lots of tips on places to visit, where to park and which roads to take (thank you!). And we were delighted to see the ponies and dogs every day. It feels like you are part of the working nursery.
Muirmailing is in a great location, very peaceful but with good links to towns and cities. We enjoyed trips to Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Loch Lomond and Edinburgh, all easily accessible. We could not fault it at all, it was the perfect break!

“Little piece of luxury in Stirlingshire”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

We only stayed here for a couple of days while visiting friends up for the Ryder cup so didn't really get a flavour of the area. But it is only 15 minutes from Stirling, and we passed by the Kelpies and Falkirk wheel on the way so there are certainly attractions in the area.
The cottage itself was just lovely. Very clean as might be expected from something only just opened this year. It was also very well equipped and furnished. The location was very quiet for our visit with lovely views across the country side. It is however in the grounds of the owners nursery business so might get busier in the spring. That said I don't think a few visiting gardeners is too much to cope with and our 20month old daughter loved wandering amongst the plants almost as much as she loved visiting Mimi and Penny the resident horses. In all a really relaxing stay in a lovely part of the country.
