My sister,mother and l had a fantastic 5 night break at the cottage.The added extras made us feel really pampered.We have had many self catering holidays but Mallard cottage was very special.Everthing in the cottage is so tasteful and lovely ..then there's the views-trully spectacular. Wendy and lan have made this place a wonderful holiday experience for their guests.
Thank you both so much.We will be back for sure.

“Absolutely Fantastic ”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Having seen all the reviews and photographs we did know that we were going to have a beautiful cottage for our holiday! It didn't disappoint. The friendly welcome after a long drive was lovely as were the delicious scones ! The views from the cottage were spectacular and were nice and warm! Hope to return - thanks very much

“Fantastic place”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed over the Easter holiday period for 4 nights. We loved everything about this place, especially the views. It was amazingly well equipped with everything you could possibly want. The owners were very attentive and there is loads to do in the area. Perfect luxury holiday house!

“Outstanding cottage, great hosts, and amazing views.”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Mallard Cottage was finished to the highest quality standards equipped with everything that is needed for a very comfortable stay. Wendy and Ian were most welcoming and sharing hosts. The special welcoming touches made for a perfect holiday.
The remote location added to the tranquility and peacefulness of Mallard Cottage - while being close enough to all Stirling facilities - and giving us amazing views of the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle.

“Self Catering Holiday Rental at its very best!”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our return to Mallard Cottage for Easter was every bit as good as last time. Wendy's attention to detail ensured we had everything we needed. The cottage provides a central location for exploring the region, with Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and the Trossachs all within easy reach. It's far enough out of Stirling to ensure peace and quiet yet close enough to the city to avoid to a long drive.
