Property description

Newholme is a large self-catering holiday house in Stirling, Scotland, just a minute’s walk from the charming village of Cambusbarron and five minutes drive from the centre of town. We are a family friendly property and at over 5000 square feet, Newholme House has room for everyone. The main house accommodates 12 people (prices quoted on this web site are for the main house only) Clients have the option to book the attached flat to accommodate an extra four person in two bedrooms, with separate bathroom and living room.Enjoy movies on the flat screen television in the sitting room or hide away with a book in front of the open fire in the spacious drawing room. Our dining room can seat up to 12 people and the kitchen is well stocked and set up for entertaining. When weather permits, enjoy roaming around the expansive garden and barbecuing in the evening.

The fully fitted kitchen is perfectly suited for entertaining large parties and we've had lots of great celebrations at Newholme. A popular option is to use one of our two local Cordon Bleu trained cooks who regularly provide either special occasion or weekly catering options.

We also organise and run heritage tours and golf tours from Newholme, as fully catered or self catered packages.

Off street, secluded parking for 5-6 cars.
Wifi is available as super fast broadband and is free.
Dogs are welcome with prior arrangement.
During the summer months, if all has gone well with the planting, you can pick your own herbs and vegetables.
Newholme House is a perfect base for exploring Scotland. We are just 45 minutes away from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Unfortunately, we do not accommodate stag or hen parties.

Newholme House is set on 3/4 of an acre and is located in beautiful Historic Stirling which is based in the heart of Scotland. Stirling itself has it's fair share of attractions...brilliant Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Stirling Bridge, Church of the Holy Rude, Bannockburn Heritage Centre but it's perfectly (and centrally) located so guests can visit so many other places in Scotland with ease. The train station is a 5 minute drive from the house and can take you into Edinburgh and Glasgow quite easily. The Trossachs are a short and lovely drive. Newholme House is perfectly located for exploring Scotland.


Manager info

About: The Callanders have been managing Newholme for 14 years. David was born and raised in the Stirling area so he's very knowledgeable about Scotland. David also runs a golf and heritage tour company. Nikki is originally from San Francisco and met David while she was on holiday in Scotland and staying at Newholme! Needless to say, it was a good match - we've been married since 2009 - and we now manage Newholme House together. Nikki is a qualified sports and remedial massage therapist, and outside clinic hours, held in Bridge of Allan, she can accommodate Newholme guests in her home studio which is next door to Newholme.

Why Stirling, Stirling, Stirling, UK:
David has always lived in the Stirling area and originally came to Newholme 25 years ago to manage the gardens for Mrs. B and then stayed on to manage the property once the house was passed down to her daughter who lives in Canada. Having come from a large family home, David meticulously maintains the Edwardian property which was built in 1938. David and Nikki work together to maintain the beautiful garden and try to ensure that Newholme guests are well looked after. The recent refurbishment of the flat now allows clients to increase their numbers from 12 to 16 using the attached, but separate flat. The Flat will not be let independently.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The pictures don't quite show how big the property can sleep 12 comfortably and accommodate 12 comfortably in our large drawing room, sitting room (with flatscreen TV), dining room (seats 12), and fully fitted kitchen. In the colder months, it's nice to sidle up to one of the open fires and in the summer months, what a treat it is to sit outside with a drink and have a BBQ in the garden. The spacious house has been host to many a special occasion and is perfect for family gatherings and special events. With the addition of the flat, joined by a connecting door upstairs and downstairs, your party can now bring four more guests. With two kingsize beds and its own living room and bathroom, the flat will only be let to guests who have booked the main house. Price on application.
