About this property

Aberfoyle 7 miles.

Resting in the small village of Dykehead, near Port of Menteith is this open-plan shed conversion, The Old School Bike Shed. Set out on the ground floor and sleeping two guests, The Old School Bike Shed is a pocket-size and welcoming setting for your next Central Scotland getaway, within easy reach of Stirling, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. A large shared driveway with The Old School greets you on arrival, with room to park up to two cars at the front of the property, before you step onto the patio where there is furniture and a BBQ to enjoy some outdoor dining whilst embracing the peacefulness of the area. As you step inside the delightful shed conversion, you are welcomed by a homely open plan living space with a cute dining room table for two, to enjoy breakfast whipped up in the kitchenette, a double bed with a Smart TV for the more relaxing evenings and two cosy chairs looking out on to the beautiful views, or space to play some board games by the fire. Stepping through the property, there is a large bathroom with a walk-in shower or choice to soak in the bath.

    Lovely hosts who instantly made us feel welcome. The Old Sciool Bike Shed is extremely comfortable and a great place to stay. We couldn't fault it. Future holiday accommodation anywhere has a lot to live up to! Thank you.

    Extremely quiet. Of course it's a little bit in the middle of nowhere but on the other hand it is surrounded by lots of nice places to visit and that can be reached within half an hour. Excellent place for happy vacation.

    Maggie and Martin are a lovely couple nothing was to much trouble ,we got left a loaf ,bottle of wine ,coffee's, tea bags ,bottle of milk .We were so comfy there and the shower is better than the one we have at home. We loved it around there but I must admit the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies were my favourite
