This well appointed self catering accommodation can sleep upto 6. Right at the heart of a working family farm, but only 7 miles from Stirling you get the best of both worlds - a rural retreat, lovely views, great walking, but easy to explore beyond
Housed within an A listed 18th Century Steading, at the heart of a beautiful working family farm Old Leckie Farmstay is great base for a holiday. The Steading looks over the historic 16 C Old Leckie house and it is hard not to get caught up in the romanticism of this historic landscape.
Guests have fantastic access to the popular walking route that links the pretty villages of Gargunnock and Kippen - only 100m away from the accommodation. They also have access to the paths and farmtracks which wind through the farm and landscaped grounds of Old Leckie House. A fire pit is sited in the field opposite the accommodation providing an evening's marshmallow toasting or impromptu BBQ!
We really enjoy meeting our guests and showing them round the farm. Alison is always available to help plan day trips and itineraries and we can draw from some great local knowledge of great places to visit away from the tourist trail... Fresh farm eggs and home made bread often complement the friendly welcome from the family.
We would love to show you round when you are here - we can arrange a farm tour to suit your plans. The property has full wifi.
We would ask that you do not enter the farmyard areas unless you are accompanied by us. Livestock and machinery can move in unpredictable ways. Young children need to be supervised when walking around the farm. We do not allow pets. We also ask that the accommodation is left clean and tidy upon departure.
We are a busy family of 5 - Fergus and Alison and our 3 young girls. Fergus grew up here on the farm and was really excited to move back in 2012 to take on the farm business. Alison didn't grow up on a farm so she is best described as an enthusiastic learner! The farm is a great place for the kids and they mostly like riding their bikes round the farm tracks, stomping in muddy puddles and feeding the calves. We really enjoy meeting new people - the farm also hosts folks who come to help on the farm through the WWOOFing scheme (Worldwide Work Opportunities on Organic Farms) so there is often a very international dimension to our farm team!
