A lovely stay
We stayed at Muirmailing Cottage for 3 nights mid-week in June with our 1 year old boy and would highly recommended it to couples and families. We booked the cottage online based on the photos we had seen and it did not disappoint. From the outside, the cottage is beautiful and in a lovely country setting. There are horses and sheep nearby which our baby just loved! The cottage interior is fresh and modern and finished to a high standard. It had everything we needed. One of the main excursions we had planned was a trip to Blairdrummond Safari Park and it only took us 15 minutes to drive there from the cottage. It is also only 15/20 minutes to drive to Falkirk or Stirling and it took us approx 40 minutes to drive to Edinburgh, so a very central location.The owners were very welcoming and friendly, taking the time to introduce themselves and let us know we could just knock on their door (their house is situated next door to the cottage) if we needed anything. They had also ensured there was a high chair and stair gates for our baby which was very helpful as it saved us bringing our own. We felt 'at home' straight away and were disappointed when our 3 nights came to an end. We'll definitely be back!

The cottage was a beautiful, well equipped relaxing retreat in a picturesque setting. The owners were very friendly & helpful. I would highly recommended. I couldn't fault in any way.

In the country side but very close to motorway access. Quiet location with lovely countryside views. Extremely well equipped and furnished. Would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to this property.

The owner of Muirmailing Cottage was very friendly and very attentive. The area was very quiet and relaxing. We really enjoyed our week in this beautiful cottage.
Mrs Podpecan

It was an excellent location for touring the area. We liked the fact that the cottage was very quiet and secluded. The owners were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The cottage was very comfortable and we felt very much at home.
