We were a party of 9 over for a holiday to visit family and do a bit of sight seeing.We had a lovely stayat Newholme House. The house is huge with 3 modern bathrooms, 2 sitting-rooms,dining-room and a fantastic kitchen.Plenty of space for everyone. On arriving David was there to give us a warm welcome and explain the works of all the appliances in the house.We had a lovely holiday and we would certainly like to come back to Newholme House.

“Great Weekend Break”

Just back from our 5th visit to Newholme House for a weekend break. This house has everything you require to have a great time, very well equipped kitchen with everything you require, and the new bathrooms are fabulous. My only small quibble is the controls on the oven have rubbed of and it makes using it a bit hit and miss. David & Nikki are very helpful and will assist you if needed.We have already booked for next year and are looking forward to another fab time.

Cannot fault this house. We had a birthday get together 14 women and had one of the best weekends. House is very well equipped. A home from home. Loads of space for a large group. Warm and comfortable . Really comfortable beds. A gem of a place I feel as if I am home and this is my second visit
Will be returning again soon

“Lovely relaxing break”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

12 of us stayed in Newholme for a week. We meet up annually for a reunion and this was to be a special 50th event. It was indeed special.

The house is huge and 12 of us stayed for a week without getting in each other's way or under each other's feet. The kitchen is huge, which it needed to be when each morning, couples rose at different times to prepare and eat their breakfast. It has a television, vast quantities of crockery and cutlery, a lovely oven, huge fridge and numerous pots and pans. There is a large dining room which allowed us to have several grand dinners during our stay. The managers also arranged for Flick to cook our celebration dinner and she did a fantastic job. Delicious food.

Plenty of spaces for people to relax and socialise. A large drawing room with a large television, a second large drawing room for those who wanted to get away from the television and a third smaller drawing room with a television. The weather didn't allow us to enjoy the attractive garden but in dry weather it looked a lovely place to relax.

The bedrooms are comfortable and plenty of bathrooms. Plenty of towels available.

Overall the house was extremely comfortable for 12 of us to have a relaxing week.

There was adequate parking for the six cars we had.

The location was great. It was just over 1 mile from the centre of Stirling and within walking distance of shops in the local village. It was a good base to explore further - Falkirk, Edinburgh, Perth and Loch Lomand were all visited during the week.

Just move in and enjoy.

So glad that you have taken the time to write a review on the House but more importantly I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay at Newholme. I am sorry that I was not there to see you but it is a testament to those who work for us ta Newholme ( Like Flick) that you were able to have a great time. We would love to see you return in the future however if you move off to other places we wish you well and thank you for coming to Newholme

“Ideal for travelling golf and other groups.”

Our touring group of golfers from South Africa have now stayed at Newholme on three separate occasions and will continue to do so in the future. We use it as a convenient base, travelling out to our chosen golf venues during the day and then returning in the evenings to a friendly, spacious and most comfortable environment. The Manager, David Callander (an excellent host) arranges for a first rate chef to come in and provide daily breakfast and dinner. I can not recommend this place highly enough for our purposes and have in fact directed several other groups to Newholme.

“Everyone loved Newholme”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We spent two weeks at Newholme, and enjoyed every minute, despite the weather which was mostly chilly and wet. We were joined by over twenty friends and family members at different times, either to stay for a while and explore Stirling, or to attend my brother's 65th birthday lunch.

For most of the time we cooked family feasts using excellent meat from the butcher in the village, and served in the lovely large dining room. The birthday lunch was cooked by Flick, a wonderful chef who made the whole experience a pleasure, from the early discussion of the menu right through to clearing up. Delicious food, and lots of it!

All our guests loved the atmosphere of Newholme, and felt as though they'd been there for ages. We needed the fires (in June!) but they just added to the comfortable ambience. Even the fans of minimalism relished their glimpse into the world of Edwardian Arts and Crafts, with its lovely woodwork and generous light-filled space.

As others have said, David was efficient and helpful, an excellent host.

All in all, a lovely place to build more of the memories that our family will cherish as the years go by.

So glad that the whole two week period went well, but sad that the weather was so indifferent, however we are glad that the party went well for your brother's 65th party, and Flick as usual provided the food that you wanted which is very important. sadly for you the weather improved although we had some very bad weather over two days last week.
