Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our return visit to The Cottage was every bit as special as our first with our earlier review still accurate. Everything was just as wee remembered, with Jo being one of the most kind and accommodating hosts we've ever met. This property is perfect for couples wishing to enjoy a cosy, comfortable, romantic break. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about staying here, it's perfect and we look forward to another visit.

We loved our stay at ‘The Cottage’ Dunblane. Perfect base for exploring so much of Scotland. Beautifully and tastefully furnished to a very high standard. Very comfortable bed and so quiet and peaceful and super clean. Cute little garden with lovely roof top views, although not accessible for the less mobile. Jo was very helpful and gave us lots of useful information on local cafes etc. I would most definitely recommend ‘The Cottage’

We have just had the most wonderful weekend at this beautiful cottage perfectly located in the heart of Dunblane, just across from the cathedral. Jo's thoughtful touches from the homemade tablet and biscuits on arrival to the luxury bath foam for the incredible bath made it really special. Jo was at the cottage to welcome us after our long journey and had even lit the log burner so it was lovely and cosy. We can't recommend this place highly enough and we will definitely be back!

Is exactly how we'd describe this cottage. Every comfort is catered for and was thoroughly enjoyed by us both. First class fixtures and fittings, comfy sofa in front of a crackin' wee log burner, extremely cosy bedroom with very comfortable bed, great shower with plenty and I mean plenty fresh towels and...the bath! The bath was splendid!! Just the perfect place to switch off and chill. Jo warmly greeted us on arrival and gave us a tour, the personal touch. I liked that! The position in Dunblane was excellent. Right in the heart of things and very close to the Cathedral, but extremely quiet. Being able to park at the door was a bonus. To sum up, this wee gem exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back.

This cottage was amazing and my partner and I had a fabulous relaxing weekend here (2 night stay) our first trip to Dunblane . Location was great with the cathedral just at the end of street and high street 2 minute walk away . Everything was fresh and clean and beautifully decorated . The free standing bath in the bedroom was out of this world ! Homemade tablet and shortbread , milk in the fridge , tea and coffee . Kitchen was brand new with everything we needed. We ate in both nights but went out locally as recommended to the cafe nearby and a lovely pub with outdoor seating area overlooking the river . 10 out of 10 and we didn’t want to leave .

About the neighbourhood
There are lots of things to do during your visit; The Cathedral, Dunblane Museum or a quick snap at Andy Murray’s golden postbox aswell as an exhaustive list of beautiful walks ranging from gentle river walks to a bracing walk up Dumyat. The Cottage is right in the heart of the ‘village’ with most places accessible on foot. Pubs and restaurants are all within a short walk and if you wish to go further afield the train station is less than a ten minute walk.
Getting around
A car is not necessary to enjoy Dunblane, the Cottage is in the middle of it all and the train is just a fe minutes walk away.
