Writer, ten year old and two friendly cats-in-residence welcome you to our lovely Victorian apartment in the pretty village Bridge of Allan, situated outside historic Stirling and within walking distance of the university.

Walks, cafes and boutiques locally, or hop on a train to nearby Glasgow or Edinburgh.

The space

Welcome to our large and comfortable apartment in former spa town, Bridge of Allan. We are on the first floor of an impressive Victorian sandstone villa. Access is to the right of the building up some stairs, so unfortunately disabled access may be limited. There is use of a driveway if needed.

Breakfast is served in our large sitting/dining room, please see below for details.

No extra charge for under 16s, book for one and let me know in your message.

Interaction with guests

We're a friendly and fun home and look forward to welcoming all guests. I mostly work from home so am likely to be around much of the time to offer tips on where to visit, eat and what to see etc however I will also respect your privacy - how much or little interaction you'd like is up to you really.

We are a family so if you prefer a quiet stay please indicate when you book and we will make sure we are considerate of this.

On the other hand, if you want to join us when we're around or to show you local areas there's every chance we'll be up for this - do ask!

A comfortable and conveniently located room with all the amenities, and artistically renovated as well. Bus stop practically just out the door, food store a few doors down, decent restaurants nearby. Definitely recommended!

Enjoyed my stay here. The room is homely, comfortable and has a lovely large bay window as well as an impressive book collection. Dani is an attentive host. Tea and coffee was available in the room. I slept well here.

We stayed in Dani’s room for 4 nights and was great. The house is near of everything, the bus stop is in front of the house and there are also so many pubs and shops. Dani was so kind with us and helped us in everything we needed. If we come back to Scotland I almost sure I’ll go to Dani’s room again.

Dani's place was exactly what I expected. I didn't get to meet to meet her, but she made the process of finding the place and getting into the apartment very easy. It's just what I needed for an over night stay.

This is in a great location, really close to the shops and the station and a tesco metro almost next door. Dani is very friendly and helpful and a nice person. The room is very spacious with a nice bay window and tea and coffee making facilities. The bed is a pull out sofa bed which was comfortable. I stayed at Dani'd twice in July. She has two funny cats that love people and attention. This is a good value for money option in a great location with a nice host

Dani is a lovely host. The room is spacious and coffee and tea fascilities are in the room. The bed is a sofa bed but comfortable. Dani serves a nice breakfast. The bathroom is clean and will get a renovation soon. The house is also home to two very friendly cats. I enjoyed staying here for two nights.

Dani User ProfileDani is a superhost.

I'm a freelance writer and welcoming host. I love to travel myself and have experience of various countries and accommodations, I therefore understand what's important for an enjoyable stay, whatever your budget!

I really enjoy my home and I hope you will too. It's friendly, warm and relaxed and I'm often around to chat to or ask advice from. Equally, getting away often means away from people so I'll be respectfully distant if preferred.

I'm a fairly typical 30 something arts-educated leftie - political, enjoy live music and theatre, good books, good food, good partying.
