Gateway Cottages...

Gateway Cottages provides you with the perfect location for your next self catering holiday!

Mallard and Partridge cottages are both located on open farmland just to the east of the historic City of Stirling, Central Scotland. This luxury accommodation provides large open plan kitchen/livingroom areas where you can relax whilst taking in the amazing panoramic views of Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills.

Our self catering cottages are ideal for family holidays, romantic getaways or just a great place to spend time with friends. In Mallard cottage, you can even bring your four-legged friend. The cottages are conveniently located to enable you to explore the surrounding areas and have great day trips out to Blairdrummond Safari Park, Doune Castle, Bannockburn Visitor Centre, the Kelpies, Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle, just to name a few of the many local attractions.

Stirling is often known as "The Gateway to the Highlands" due to its historic strategic position. This location makes it a perfect base to make day trips to many Scottish attractions further afield such as Edinburgh Castle, St Andrews, Loch Lomond, The Trossachs National Park and even Fort William and the West Coast of Scotland which are all within a 2hr drive away. This proximity is not only ideal for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as golf, hillwalking, cycling and fishing but is also a great location for historians and fans of the TV series Outlander with many filming locations nearby. For parents of students at Stirling University we are located only 4 miles from the campus, making it an ideal location to visit family at University and enjoy a holiday at the same time.

The cottages are furnished to a very high standard offering luxury home from home accommodation and enjoy amenities such as super king sized comfy beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a wood burning stove and nice warm underfloor heating. You can even relax in the outdoor hot-tub at Partridge Cottage with outstanding views. The outside areas at both cottages provide ample parking for three cars and a large secure garden ideal for children and pets (Mallard only). 

Included in your rental are electricity, linen, towels, fast Wi-Fi, smart TV with access to Netflix, as well as lots of other little extras to make your holiday special. Although the cottages are self-catered and extremely close to farm shops or food supermarkets, there is also a wide range of restaurants and pubs offering bar meals nearby in Stirling and Bridge of Allan, when you want a night off from cooking. If you prefer to stay in there is a wide range of takeaway options.

If you are not convinced yet, hopefully, a warm welcome and homemade scones waiting for you on arrival, will help to persuade you to book Gateway Cottages for your next holiday.
