Thorntree Barn in Arnprior, near Stirling. Spacious converted barn, ideal for touring and/or visiting Central Scotland. On the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. One hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow
Thorntree is in the hills above Flanders Moss, midway between Loch Lomond, the Trossachs and Stirling, on the southern edge of the Highlands - ideal for a self catering holiday in Scotland. Carol and Mark Seymour who live in this old L-shaped farmhouse have converted one wing to make spacious self-catering rental accommodation which can sleep 6 or 7 persons in considerable comfort. Thorntree is good for golfing, and walking. Climbing and skiing are not too far away. We are only one hour from Glasgow & Edinburgh, so we are an ideal base for touring and visiting all the wonderful tourist attractions - not least the fantastic scenery.
Carol is a florist, and she and Mark have surrounded the farmhouse with lovely gardens of roses, lawns, flower beds and shrubs; gardens made extra special by the wonderful views over the Carse of Stirling towards the Trossachs and southern Highlands. In fact from the sitting room of the barn itself there are often spectacular panoramic sunsets behind 3000 foot Ben Lomond.
A door opens on one side onto the gravel courtyard ( where swallows nest under eaves in summer), and the french windows on the other open onto Thorntree Barn's own lawns (with garden seats), and give access to a private parking area.
There is a long and spacious room downstairs with windows on both sides. At one end is the living room (with gas fired log effect stove); at the other end is the kitchen with dining table. The kitchen has a cooker, microwave oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble drier. There is a larger deep freeze available if you need to store frozen meals in any quantity.
There are three twin bedrooms, two of which can be arranged either as twin bedded or as double bedded. One has an en-suite shower room, the other two share a bathroom. There is also a separate wc. One bedroom has an extra pull-down bed. Most of the rooms have antique furniture and all are furnished very comfortably.
Bed linen and towels are included in the price.
