Pippa and Robin provided such a warm welcome to us on our six night stay at Quarter last week. Our hosts were thoughtful, attentive, and we felt as if we were leaving good friends at the end of our stay even though we discovered this B&B on the internet. Our arriving flight was late and full of mistakes and twice Pippa called our booking for supper to tell them we would be late without my having to ask. She met us on the doorstep of her lovely home to greet my weary family with a smile. The B&B is part of a large estate so my children had plenty of space to run and play out of doors. They were especially thrilled with her chickens which she let them pet and collect eggs (which she then uses in her delicious breakfast everyday). There are also stables and a play place next door if you should choose to go there.
We booked three rooms- all were spacious and comfortable. She mentioned there were new mattresses on some of the beds and we slept very well. This is a charming (old) house and some of the bathrooms do not have showers (extremely large bath tub with shower faucet instead). The rooms were cleaned and freshened daily. Pippa was very generous and even offered her washing machine and kitchen (they were out for an evening) to my use. She loves inviting her guests for a nightcap every evening to learn more about them- and we really enjoyed getting to know them as well. We took day trips from Stirling and found the location right in the middle of all the places we wanted to go. It is a 45 minute drive to Glasgow, a 2 hour drive to Oban, a 40 min train ride to Edinburgh and minutes to Stirling Castle.
We treasured our experience immensely and I would recommend it to anyone. Just remember that it is a 250 year old home full of warmth, character and charm. You will not have the same experience as if staying at a four star hotel. I for one find that all the more personable and charming!
