Property Description

Set within the extensive grounds of a stunning Edwardian house (which now serves as a conference centre), this stylish modern detached house, with its own private entrance, has been designed to a very high specification for a holiday stay and boasts seven bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. Elegantly furnished and particularly thoughtfully finished, the living room overlooks the orchard and has the added feature of a ‘glass wall’, allowing a wide field of view to be taken in. A large grassed garden is available for sole use, and there are very attractive mature gardens and grounds surrounding the conference centre, which have fine views of the Ochil Hills.
The area immediately surrounding the house is rich in history. Known as Rob Roy and William Wallace Country, there are several places of interest to visit, as well as monuments that played a part in the turbulent stories of the past. Nearby is the beautifully restored Alloa Tower, coming under the care of the NTS, which was the ancestral home of the Earls of Mars for centuries, and which affords fine views of the Forth from its parapet walk. From Castle Campbell, there are magnificent views of the hills beyond and down the glen to Dollar – an affluent town that is home to the respected Academy. Flanked by the rushing streams of the Burn of Sorrow and the Burn of Care, the wooded glen leading up to the castle offers a pleasant walk.
Straddling the River Forth, Stirling (just a 15-minute drive away), has the lofty Wallace Monument, which stands proudly as a tribute to William Wallace. From the top of the tower, views across to Fife and Ben Lomond can be savoured. Stirling’s magnificent castle overlooks the town and historical re-enactments are frequently staged here. Also within easy reach are Edinburgh and Glasgow – both lying within a 40-minute drive. Retail outlet village at Tillicoultry, and activities such as golf, riding, hill walking and fishing all available nearby. Shops 1/2 mile.

This property is close to Gleneagles where the 2014 Ryder Cup took place, come and play a round of golf all year round on this world-renowned course.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. If you are planning a family get-together of up to 14 people this is fantastic. We had a "Xmas" dinner for 16 on one night with little stress - the place is fantastic and I can’t rate it high enough. Book it... Dec 2011.
  2. Stayed at Orchard Lodge for a long weekend with a group of friends and family. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend, house is lovely and having the large orchard to lounge around and sunbathe in was a big plus. House was very clean and equipped with almost every item you would need during your stay, including a hot water bottle ;-) We are looking forward to staying at Orchard Lodge again in the near future. June 2011.
  3. The house and the grounds it is in were fantastic and something my family and I will book again. Plenty of room, clean and tidy and great outdoor area for the kids too. If I was going to offer anything I would maybe recommend a large fridge, American style, due to the size of the property and amount of persons on our trip this would have been the only thing I could think that was missing. June 2011.
  4. This cottage was suberb, its actually more like a hotel set up very nice. We took 2 young children and it was a good child friendly place, definitely recommend this property. May 2011.
  5. The bedrooms were good sizes and all had tvs. The grounds were also excellent. Dec 2010.
  6. It was great for a get together for all the family and excellent for the dogs as the gardens were enclosed and it was not too far from Stirling. Oct 2010.
  7. Ideal for multiple families. Sept 2010.
  8. The accommodation was big, clean and bright. We liked the fact that the kitchen table seated all of us (14). The layout was such that everyone had their own privacy and their own bathrooms. Big back garden was fully enclosed and safe for both the children and the dog. Sept 2010.
  9. Nice location & big spacious rooms and bathrooms. Aug 2010.
