À propos de ce logement
Forming half of the stable accommodation block on a very picturesque Scottish country estate, this period property has been lovingly restored to provide bright and airy accommodation with stunning views over the mature parkland to the Campsie Fells.
A delightfully quirky building in a beautiful location amid 80 acres of rolling parkland you feel like you're in the heart of the country yet you are only 10 minutes walk from the bustling village of Balfron and only 30 minutes drive from Glasgow or Stirling. There is a well equipped kitchen, a living room furnished with antiques and a log-burning stove, two double bedrooms both with double beds and a single room. The bathroom has a small bath and shower.
Use of bedlinen and towels will be included in the price
I do keep the price reasonable and do not charge a separate cleaning fee so would appreciate if guests could leave the place as they find it.

I live in the other half of the property so I am on site to assist with guests needs. I am happy to interact as much or as little with guests as they like. I know the area very well having lived hereabouts for over ten years and am keen to help you find your way around and enjoy the very best the area has to offer. There are times when I work away from home but, on those occasions, I will endeavour to make sure someone is on hand to help out.
There is no TV here although I can generally (but not always) make limited wifi available if needed and there are radios in the cottage. Mobile phone signals are patchy and you may need to wander down the drive to get reception.
I try to run the properties here as resource efficiently as possible and would ask guests to recycle wherever possible. The heating is by woodburner and ground source heatpump which, while environmentally friendly, can be on the cool side so bring a fleece. There are electric fires in the bedrooms to top up if needed and underfloor heating in the kitchen. It gets pretty warm once you get the woodburner going. Welcome to Scotland!

Hi I am an environmental campaigner and creative marketing specialist. I am Australian by birth. English by Education and have chosen to live in Scotland where my maternal family come from. I love old buildings and have dragged the one I live in reluctantly into the 21st century. I try to be a fairly laid back but efficient and welcoming host.
