“Perfect family home from home”
Reviewed 24 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at Templelea when moving to the area, before we moved into our new house in a nearby village. We loved every minute of our stay, it was a real home from home. Situated in beautiful surroundings, our children loved the sheep farm- great walks and close to nearby villages and beautiful countryside. We enjoyed a lovely evening listening to traditional music in nearby lively village of Drymen. The house was very well equipped and comfortable with lovely touches in every room. The kitchen has all the equipment you need for cooking and feeding family and friends who came to visit us during our stay. It was so peaceful and made our transition from the city to the countryside extra special-we hold lovely memories of staying here. Jeanette and Walter were most welcoming- we were delighted to receive Jeanette's wonderful homemade baking on a Sunday afternoon, and the kids enjoyed hearing about the running of the farm from Walter. Thank you for making our stay so special, our children (3&5) are still talking about it! Highly recommend this property for a holiday with friends, or family.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Templelea Farm Cottage for 5 nights in September. The house was very comfortable and had a really homey feel to it. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to make our stay a great one. The kitchen was well equipped and there were even a few groceries/staples thoughtfully provided for us. While I certainly don't expect home owners to supply my grocery needs for my stay, it is nice not to have to buy every mortal thing when you are travelling. The owner had even made us a delicious cake - a welcome addition to our picnic lunch each day. A lovely big bathroom with big fluffy white towels and a huge bathtub - perfect for soaking in after our long hikes each day. All the rooms had a great outlook. When we booked the cottage, we worried it might be a little out of the way but in fact is was just the opposite. Set back off the road and surrounded by farmland, we felt like we were miles from anywhere but the location was actually very central for exploring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. I would most definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

“We felt very much at home in this scrupulously clean and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The photos do no justice to this lovely cottage. We really enjoyed our stay there and will certainly go back. It is modern, scrupulously clean and very comfortable. We arrived late in the evening but it was no problem to Jeanette who was there to greet us. There was a bottle of wine in the fridge for us as well as butter, milk and bread. Jeanette had baked us a delicious fruit cake which didn't last long! The cottage has lovely views over the Campsie Fells and is within easy reach of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The village of Drymen is close and has a small supermarket - and a very good butcher.
