About this property

The Byre Farm Cottage In The Trossachs With Pool And Hot Tub

Family-friendly agritourism property with indoor pool and spa tub
The Byre at Back Borland holiday cottages. Situated in the fantastic location of the Trossachs National Park, these beautifully renovated 18th-century barn conversions, accessed via a rough track, lie in a peaceful location offering breathtaking views over Ben Lomond and the Menteith Hills. Gartmore is the perfect setting for those who love outdoor pursuits, with hundreds of kilometres of forest track easily accessible, The ‘endless’ swimming-pool provides optimal swimming conditions for a single swimmer and the current can be adjusted to a preferred level of difficulty. Even without the current, it still makes a lovely sized pool in which children can swim and have fun. Please note that Back Borland is accessible by a farm track that may not be suitable for some vehicles with particularly low ground clearance e.g. sports cars etc. We’re sorry, we are no longer able to accept dogs.

3/5 Okay

Great place for a relaxing family holiday
A really great place for a holiday with children . The owners of the property are delightful and the bottle of Prosecco and flapjacks on arrival are a lovely touch. The pool and hot tub were a real bonus that added to the children’s enjoyment. We did not realise from the online listing that the pool and hot tub were shared with another property and that there was a timetable for its use. Having said that, the timetable was very fair. We also did not realise from the online description that the pool was not directly attached to our accommodation and that one had to go outdoors to get access to it. It would be helpful if the online description mentioned that one has to go outdoors to access the indoor pool. We would have brought bathrobes and crocs if we had known, particularly with four young children and in cold weather. We thoroughly recommend this lovely place in a very beautiful part of Scotland! Thank you Rosie and Dave!

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing Retreat
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the location quiet and relaxing which is what we wanted. The pool and hot tub were added bonuses. The wood burning stove made the property lovely and cosy in the evenings. Well worth the visit and would definitely recommend!

4/5 Good

Nice house
Nice house with good facilities. Track is a bit rough but fine for average car taken slowly.

3/5 Okay

Family Holiday
Road to property worse we have ever encounter in 30 years of travelling to Scotland cottages. Property a bit tired, especially the pool area. Outside area in front of cottage could do with a lot of work to make first impressions a better experience. Wasn't make clear on website how close to other property and owner.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely spacious cottage
Myself and 4 friends came here to celebrate a 30th birthday. We loved the place. Log fire was nice and cosy. Hottub and swimming pool were great. Nice location if you are looking to get away from the usual hustle and bustle! I would recommend a visit to the local pub (black bull). The flapjacks and prosecco on arrival from Rosie was also lovely. Would definitely reccomend this place. Thanks again Rosie
