“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 23 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I stayed here for a reunion for a long weekend and it was amazing. The hosts are brilliant, the catering delicious and the bed enormous. Especially loved the open fire! I would definitely come back.

Thank you Nikki and David!

“Great house, loads of space, great Christmas”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here over Christmas 2012 - 11 adults and a 15-month-old toddler. I was really impressed with the size of the house - we never felt on top of each other or even as if the house was full. Of course everyone gravitated to the kitchen even though there are two marvellous living rooms and an enormous dining room. Kitchen was a great size for having 2 or more people cooking (and one washing up - although there is a dishwasher too!) which was perfect for Christmas.
Good showers with good water pressure and plenty of hot water, 3 of the bedrooms are gigantic and the other 3 are perfectly decent sized so we didn't have any fights about who got the smaller ones.
The location was perfect for us as several of us were arriving by public transport (taxi from the train station was less than £4) but also plenty of space for the 4 cars we brought (and would have been room for more). Very handy to have a shop in easy walking distance.
David and Nikki were very helpful and Nikki's Christmas decorations were absolutely beautiful (and her cupcakes were delicious!)
Only thing I'd point out is that the house can be difficult to spot in the dark - it's easier to see the house sign if you arrive from the Stirling rather than the Cambusbarron direction.

Thank you so mush for your review...we very much enjoyed having you and your family staying for the holidays and we had so much fun decorating the house for you! You were our first guests after having done a few upgrades and it's nice to know you had a great time. Happy to hear that you liked the cupcakes and we are now experimenting with cake pops!

“A home away from home”
Reviewed 15 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I first came with my family to stay at Newholme for Christmas back in 2008. We recently spent another weekend there, which was our third stay, and as before we had a fantastic time.
The house sleeps 12 and can easily accommodate that many people. The living space is excellent with a great sized kitchen, spacious dining room, sitting room and good sized TV room. The bedrooms are roomy and modern without taking away from the traditional style of the house. Regardless of the size of our party, we never felt like we were on top of each other. My fiancée and I have a 16th month old child, so we were pleased to find that there was a cot (actually we had our pick of 2!) and a high chair at the house already. The house also has a large garden with plenty of space for the little one to run around.
The location of the house is great. It’s no more than a 15 minute walk to Stirling and within easy reach of lots of beautiful walks. We also found Newholme very convenient for day trips to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Nikki and David, who manage the property, have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and were always willing to offer suggestions of things to do or places to go.
My family and I always enjoy staying at Newholme and would definitely recommend it to any other would be visitors to the area!

“Fabulous house, great location”
Reviewed 12 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Our family loved Newholme and would come back in a minute. In fact, we didn't want to leave. Newholme is a large, modernized home with Old World character. Our family of 7 (parents with 4 grown children and one son-in-law) had oodles of space. The "sleeps 12" is
true - nicely appointed bedrooms for all. (high quality linens) We loved: cooking in the fabulous kitchen, eating around the long dining room table, gathering by the fire in the beautiful sitting room for games or planning our next excursion. Kids of course liked the TV room late at night. Our family appreciates having a nice holiday house when we travel. It can make or break the vacation, even when we leave early and get home late from a day of touring. My son said the website didn't lie. Newholme was even better than the pictures. The Callanders gave great touring recommendations, and the Christmas decorations (real tree, greenery, etc.) were perfect. At first we wondered if Stirling was the location we wanted - thinking we wanted to be farther north. We discovered Stirling is perfect! We had great outings. Hope we can come back!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We very much enjoyed having your family stay at Newholme and so happy that you were all able to get together at such short notice! David really has been everywhere in Scotland and loves having a chat about places to go and visit and so we're very pleased that you were able to make use of David's knowledge and that you really enjoyed your excursions. Your beautiful card has been much admired and has now found a home in a lovely frame. We sent a snapshot of it to the owner who adored it just as we did. We hope to find you back in Scotland one day. All the best to you and your family.

“Our fabulous Scotland secret is out!!!”
Reviewed 12 January 2013 for a stay in November 2011

I was looking for Newholme information to book for the Ryder Cup, 2014, when I saw that this wonderful home is now on Trip Adviser. While I am pleased that other people will be able to experience this wonderful manor house, I am sad that our Scotland gem has been made public. I have been to Newholme 4 times under different circumstances; the Open, a wedding, and two family vacations. Everytime has been magical. David and Nikki are great hosts, and their company, The Links Club, is my first choice for booking a Scotland golf vacation ( for your husband). There is plenty of room in the house, and I am taking about parties of 10-12. You can self cater, or have the Callendars to arrange catering for your party. Stirling is centrally located, and we were able to plan day trips to Edinbugh, Glasgow, The Trossachs, and the Highlands quite easily.

The house was beautiful back in 2005, but it looks fantastic after the new paint and decorating. Ahhh Newholme, it was nice to have you when we did. I travel from California with friends and family, and this was my go-to Scotland home away from home. BTW...the house is already booked for the Ryder Cup 2104, poor me....

Thank you so much for your kind review! Think of it as spreading the joy. Newholme was made for families and special events and we've very much enjoyed having you and your family visit on several occasions. I do recall a fantastic cocktail party that you hosted here which was made more special because the weather was perfect - a great success! We look forward to welcoming you all back to Scotland any time!

“Fabulous accommodation and great hosts”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in July 2012

The property is ideally located and at a walkable distance to the town centre.
The facilities are of a high standard and easily coped with our large contingent of Australians. We all had a great time and could do our own thing without tripping ver each other .
The host/s live on site and were very approachable and helpful to all our enquiries.
No complaints from any of the group.
