Hello, we had a great stay in this cottage and enjoyed the spacious and clean rooms. The pictures give a very good impression and our kids really enjoyed our stay.
Fiona also did help with answering any question.

“The Best Acre of Quiet Reflection and Vistas”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

We found a quiet repose in a very central location to all the sights of Bonnie Scotland. Home away from home with easy access to surrounds on day outings.
Very cosy and well maintained home with the most spectacularviews. On a clear day you can see forever. Wished we could have stayed forever to.
Thank you once again
Fiona

“One " I"ll come again" cottage!”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We had a wonderful time in Scotland. Garrique cottage is both spacious and very cosy, generously furnished , the view is amazing and its location is very convenient to explore the country . But we will try and come back to spend more time just enjoying the cottage and feel like at home! Thanks a lot to its very welcoming hosts!

“A Scottish Easter”
Reviewed 11 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We had the pleasure of spending another Easter in this wonderful location.

The cottage is perfect for a family, decorated to a high standard and brilliantly equipped whilst retaining a real charm and homeliness which makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

The cottage has enviable views and is set within acres of forest all perfect for exploring. A shortish walk over the hill leads to a little shop, cafe and pub in the nearby village of Kippen and with a tennis court, lake and river also in the grounds, there’s no need to get in the car at all if you don’t wish.

If you want to venture out, Glasgow and Edinburgh are a stones throw away. We contended ourselves with a trip to Stirling Castle, and to the museum about the Battle of Bannickburn, both of which were great days out.

Our hosts were thoughtful and helpful, always on hand and happy to recommend places to explore. We will be back in a heartbeat. And in the words of my 12 year old son ..... the view never gets old.

“Great family friendly cosy cottage”
Reviewed 24 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Just back from a great week with our family at garrique. Kids loved it, and the tennis court was big bonus for them. Very peaceful and great base for exploring. Really enjoyed the "time capsule" water park in Coatbridge, well worth a visit. Very friendly and helpful owners. Will be back again.

Thank you for visiting us for half term. We loved seeing you all on the tennis court and walking up into the wood with your wee boy in the baby buggy. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay here, and rounded it off with a sunny day out at the Safari Park. Here's to a return visit.

“Very comfortable accommodation and great care by Fiona”
Reviewed 10 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The views from the cottage were breath taking,and in a central spot to visit many places of interest. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need. The owner is very friendly and made sure that we were happy and had everything we needed. I really could not fault anything, and I would highly recommend Garrique Cottage for the more mature as well younger people and children as there is so much on the doorstep if you like walking.
Having stayed in many different cottages and apartments this cottage tops the bill.

“Great location, peaceful, spacious and functional property.”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just returned from a week holiday with my wife and 3 children using Garrick cottage as a base for days out and exploring. Location is fantastic for day trips to Edinburgh, Trossacks and surrounding lochs. Glencoe about 1.5 hours drive but well worth it. Accommodation is in a great location nestled in the hills with fantastic views. We stay in about 2 rentals most years but unfortunately we were disappointed by the standard of cleanliness in this property. It needs a deep clean and in some areas replacement of equipment and redecorating. The owners are clearly nice people and since I left the comments in their comment book they have been in touch seeking additional clarification regarding our feedback. They have taken this as positive feedback and explained how they will be dealing with the issues we experienced. Overall, positives are great wifi, comfortable beds, peaceful location, lovely views, free firewood for the stove and overall spaciousness. With a little re-investment, maintainance and update I am sure the reviews would come back up to Excellent.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. We are glad you enjoyed so many aspects of the cottage, and are sorry you found it had drifted a bit below your exacting standards after a wonderfully busy summer. We had reserved the week after you left for a thorough spring clean, which has now been completed, with various items renewed. We trust our autumn visitors will be more than happy with everything.
