    Wow what a lovely place, Alison and Allen had us at such short notice! They had the travel cot up and stair gates ready for our toddler. Even bread and a bottle of wine for us which was a welcome treat after a stressful day! They had thought of everything even to our dog with treats for her. Location is ideal as it's in the central of most things and beautiful walks at your doorstep. We can honestly say we had such a fab time exploring the area and coming home to such an amazing cottage! Thank you so much ali and Allen, we hope to be back soon!

    Lovely hosts and great welcome pack for us and the dog. Very cosy cottage and well maintained. Would have loved an enclosed area for the dog but it wasn't a big issue as we still had use of the garden. Our stay at Acorn Cottage was relaxing and peaceful.

    From the moment we arrived we couldn’t have been made more welcome. The cottage is amazing, very spacious and clean. The couches in the sitting room are sooo comfy. We were over with our nearly 2 year old and have to say, the cottage is very toddler friendly- from very comfortable cot to gates and even toddler dinner sets. I would highly recommend Acorn Cottage for your next holiday

    From the moment we arrived the owners, who live next door, made us feel welcome. The house included essentials - a bit of milk, teabags, a lemon drizzle cake - was impeccably turned out, and anything vital we didn't have could be obtained at the village shop a short walk away, or the two pubs in the village provide suitable places to eat. If you need more, Stirling has all the major supermarkets only 20 minutes drive away. Not only was there a helpful folder of essential information, but clear instructions and manuals for everything from the dishwasher to the wifi. We highly recommend this location and this cottage to anyone visiting the area.

    We stayed for one week in May and could not have been happier. We shared with friends from Germany who felt exactly the same way. The welcome we received from the extremely helpful owners was exceptional and included a lovely card and home baked delicious cakes. This cottage is in a perfect spot with easy access to everything we wanted to see in the area and for more lazy days, there are several lovely walks starting right at the doorstep. Every leaflet and map one could wish for were available and the owners, living next door, very only too happy to help. Kippen itself is beautiful and has a wonderful community feel to it; we can recommend both local pubs for nice food and a friendly welcome. I arrived with a large box of everything one usually doesn't find in a rented cottage and has to buy locally; I should not have bothered. Everything right down to the smallest detail/item had already been thought off. The kitchen was better kitted out then my own! I would like to mention the fabulous comfortable beds since a good night sleep is an important part of a good holiday. Last, but definitely NOT least for a party of mainly Germans: The house as spotlessly clean! Not a fleck of dust anywhere and everything was is brilliant condition or even new. If you are looking for a home from home, with a friendly welcome, great value for money and in a lovely spot, look no further. We will definitely be returning. Many thanks!

    Acorn Cottage was a wonderful place to stay. It is very well equipped, and the location is perfect for visiting Stirling and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The owners are absolutely lovely and provided a fabulous welcome basket.
