More about Fordhead (the location)Fordhead Farm overlooks the Fords of Frew on the River Forth, some 9 miles west of Stirling in Central Scotland. This region, known as the Carse of Stirling is one of the most fertile areas in Scotland.
The Carse is regarded as 'Scotlands Hay Basket' and at Fordhead, one of the main crops is Timothy Hay, a high quality variety that is particularly suited to the area. Grain crops in the form of Wheat, Barley and Oats are grown here with yields of up to 4 tons per acre in an exceptional year. Cattle and Sheep thrive on the lush pastures and Fordhead has its own small Aberdeen Angus Herd.
Fordhead offers two self-catering cottages for superb holidays in the midst of the finest scenery in Scotland.
Fordhead Cottage (the cottage)Fordhead Cottage offers superb self-catering accommodation in this original building attached to a large, traditional Victorian farmhouse located at the head of the historic Fords of Frew.
The cottage retains much of the charm and ambiance of days gone by and imparts that comfortable feeling of 'homeliness' to all who stay there.
Located in peaceful surroundings there is ample opportunity to wander along the riverbank, try your hand at trout fishing or simply enjoy the rural tranquility.
Situated just 1 mile outside the picturesque village of Kippen with its historic buildings and lovely traditional pubs/restaurants, the Cottage is within easy reach of Stirling, The Trossachs, Glasgow and Edinburgh and provides an ideal central touring base for your holiday.
A small private enclosed garden provides either a safe place for children to play or a spot in which to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Water, electricity and central heating costs are included in the rental. Towels and bed linen are provided at no extra charge. We ask that guests respect our non-smoking policy and well-behaved pets are welcome (there is ample opportunity to walk them on the river bank).
