  The Detail...

Size isnt everything at the cosy and charming Bankhead Shepherds Hut near Stirling in central Scotland. Luxury meets the great outdoors at this superb family getaway that brings guests back to nature without compromising on creature comforts.

Sleeping two adults and two children, the hut is as beautiful on the inside as it looks from the outside. Those staying enter into the open plan living and sleeping space. The wood burning stove in the corner keeps this sleek room warm whatever the weather as guests relax on the stylish chairs. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob, oven, fridge, dishwasher, and small Belfast sink. Utensils and crockery are also provided, as are essentials such as oil, vinegar, tea, and coffee. Guests can then enjoy their culinary delights at the dining table.

With no disturbing sounds of traffic outside, a great night's sleep is on the cards in the king size double bed. Located above it are twin bunks accessed by a ladder which are perfect for kids, making Bankhead Shepherds Hut the ideal family stay. Tucked away at the end of the hut and behind a door is the bathroom, which consists of a walk-in shower, basin, and toilet - as well as a starter pack of luxurious soaps and shampoos.

Those staying will wake each morning and enjoy spectacular views towards the Gargunnock Hills as they sit out on the picnic bench.Those who are lucky enough might even spot deer grazing, hares hopping about, or red squirrels scurrying. In the evenings, guests can remain outdoors as they keep warm around the fire pit.

Located on a farm, there are plenty of walks and cycle routes to be discovered right on the doorstep. There are also plenty of opportunities to go horse riding and a number of great spots to play golf. Meanwhile, the historic city of Stirling is just a short drive away with its grand Royal Palace and castle. Its also got plenty of bars and restaurants, as well as the chance to go whiskey tasting.

Sussie Brooks says...
"WOWEEEEE this place is truly magical - we had the best stay EVER! Imagine a luxury apartment set in picturesque countryside, where the only sound is birdsong and you open the curtains in the morning to see wild deer skipping past!! Liz and Hector have thought of everything, from the cosiest of bed linen to a fully-equipped kitchen and amazing wood-burning stove. They are dream hosts too, striking the perfect balance between making sure you're comfortable and leaving you to enjoy the peace. Peace really is paramount here - the cabin is so relaxing and impeccably designed, with tempting books, comfy chairs, and alfresco seating/dining to help you soak in the stunning (and all-to-yourself!) view. There's even a television if you're crazy enough to want it, and the shower is excellent and hot. If you're worried about excited kids sleeping in bunks above you, panic not - there's plenty of outdoor activity in this area to wear them out! I've stayed in huts that feel like huts, but this one really feels like a home. I honestly would move in here and can't WAIT to make a return trip!"
