  • "In short we loved our stay at Braeface Cottage."

    Returned home from a week of relaxation, peace and quite, just what the doctor ordered, staying at the Braeface Cottage. Rob and Lynne are very welcoming and and helpful, giving advice, information on where to go and places to take your dog. A welcome pack is provided just to help you settle in along with a number of basic items, milk for example. Rob and Lynne even provide towels for your dog and throws for the furniture. Rob called shortly after our arrival and talked us through the use of various items, tv, heating etc. Our dog Lara enjoyed the enclosed gardens, which gave us peace of mind while she was out exploring. The accommodation was very comfortable with just about everything you will need for your stay. Loved the big and very comfortable beds. My wife wanted to take the kitchen home only thing missing was a dryer. The property is well located for trips to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Sterling withe the Kelpies and Falkirk Wheel within easy reach. We did have a couple of minor issues, not enough to spoil our break, but on reporting these to Rob, these were addressed almost immediately. Yes we would recommend Braeface Cottage as a place to stay, and we are looking to rebook. Graham & Chrissie

    Thanks to you both and Lara for the lovely feedback. Glad you enjoyed your break. Your welcome back anytime xx Property Owner

  • "We couldn't fault Braeface Cottage, it's spacious, warm, comfortable and has open views front and back."

    It has recently been refurbished and extended to a very high standard and it certainly has the Wow Factor. Its exactly as seen in the photographs and is spotlessly clean throughout. The fabulous kitchen and dining room had everything we needed and was bright and airy due to the large windows area and velux roof lights. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and the beds very comfortable. The lounge is also very comfortable and a really great space to relax in after a busy day exploring. We were pleased to meet Rob, the owner, who welcomed us on arrival and we thank him for both his friendliness and kindness. We have taken cottage holidays for many years and Braeface Cottage is up there with the best. Highly recommended.

    Big Thanks for this lovely review , you were both great guests to have stay over, Welcome back anytime Property Owner

  • "Wonderful comfortable cottage."

    Extremely attentive owners always on hand to make our break even more enjoyable. Excellent contained garden, front and rear, giving us peace of mind to let our greyhound roam. Lazy mornings followed by afternoon adventures to the local area, e.g. The Kelpies, ending with a cosy evening inside a lavishly comfortable cottage. You won’t be disappointed if you stay at this peaceful location.

  • "When we entered the cottage, we were really impressed at the size and also the decoration."

    The kitchen extension was breathtaking and we immediately knew we would be having a wonderful week. Rob popped in a few times to make sure we knew how to use the heating and show us other things we needed to know He also kept in touch by text and his personal touch was the perfect start to our break. A lovely host. The enclosed garden at the front and back of the cottage have us peace of mind to let harry wander about safely. He instantly adapted to his new home and the comfortable, warm , cosy interior was a major factor in this. Lazy mornings were followed by afternoon adventures to different destinations , e.g the kelpies. All this was ended by quiet, cosy evenings in our beautiful cottage. As 25 year veterans of pet friendly holidays all over Scotland and North England, We can heartily recommend staying at Braeface Cottage. You won't be dissapointed
