“House with a view”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very nice location, very good/nice view at Stirling Castle. A well-kept house. All payments were conducted honestly with the owner and we got the deposit back in cash.
The owner is a very friendly lady.

“perfect for our needs”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As a group of hillwalkers, we were seeking accommodation for a group of 8 but requiring single beds for most of the group. It's not easy to find a good house which was perfectly located and has all the amenities required - close to Stirling (5 minutes by car) yet in the country. Easy access to Loch Lomond and lots of options for walking, regardless of your level. Val, the landlady, is very welcoming and a mind of local information. Linen and beds were top class, plenty of space for eating as well as relaxing in the living room/sitting room. The farms dog is as friendly as you're likely to meet. The pictures don't really do it justice and it's ideal for whatever make-up of group you might bring - men, ladies, families, mixed groups. Highly recommend it.

“Wonderful Easter holidays with big family”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We staid for a week in Val and Hannah's house and enjoyed it to the fullest. We were a family of 10 (3 generations) and absolutely loved it! The location just outside of Stirling is a perfect base for trips into the nearer and farther surroundings. The house is light and spacious and really lovely, recently refurbished in a very charming style and, thus, in a superb condition. There is plenty of space; and Val and Hannah are very friendly and helpful with everything. We can definitely recommend it.

“All expectations met and more!”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our family of 8 spent Christmas 2014 at Bankend Farmhouse. The house was wonderfully warm and cosy but at the same time spacious enough for us all to relax without falling over one another. Location fantastic with amenities within a very short distance. The house had been decorated for Christmas and was very welcoming. We did a lot of cooking at home and the kitchen/dining accommodated us all very easily and provided a great family environment. We met Val, who was also very warm and welcoming but were then left to our own devices, knowing she was just across the yard should we need anything. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again if given the chance.

“Lovely, spacious cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Old Bankend Farm is a very good holiday cottage. There were five adults and four children in our party and we had plenty of space in the five bedrooms, two lounges and big kitchen-diner. Everything was in lovely condition, the kitchen was well equipped and the two bathrooms very nice. The views of Stirling Castle from the cottage were wonderful and it was lovely to see horses in the field next to the cottage every day, as well as to be greeted by the friendly farm dogs.
The booking process was rather "casual" as the owner doesn't seem to believe in paperwork and doesn't provide receipts for deposits, a written rental agreement, inventory of the contents of the cottage or details about when to arrive and leave etc, so you just have to trust that everything will be OK! She was very helpful once we were there, giving directions to the supermarket etc, and we got our deposit back with no bother.
The cottage is very well located for visiting Stirling and Loch Lomond and has good transport links to Glasgow and Edinburgh too.

“Lovely house, plenty of space, in great setting”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Myself and 12 others used Bankend Farm as our base for a recent stag weekend. I have to say that initially conversation with Val (the owner) via email was a bit slow, but it is a private property and she did get back to me in reasonably timely manner, so no harm done at all (just be aware that it might take a few days, or even a reminder, to hear back). The building itself was fantastic, well equipped and Val herself was extremely nice and helpful - we felt very happy and well taken care of.

The house had plenty of space for all of us (2 slept on a sofa) and the bathrooms and toilets are definitely sufficient. It's great for self catering with a massive Sainsbury's less than a 5 min drive away. This is a beautiful and well priced placed for any time of the year, but spring and summer is probably the best, simply because of the terrace and BBQ area.

I would not hesitate going back to Bankend farm!

“Christmas in Bankend Farm”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Large house with good size rooms and car parking just the right distance form Stirling.
After reading some reviews we asked to pay a rent which included having the heating on as much as we liked over Christmas and the house was very warm and toasty. It was decorated for Christmas and met all our needs. We managed to cook Christmas dinner for a party of 12, but that was the maximum. A slight drawback was the very small freezer which may be a problem for some people but only if you are cooking home cooked meals for a large number of people everyday.
I would recommend staying here but be sure of what is included in the rent .
