Certificate of Excellence
Balmule House has roots and features that stretch back over 500 years yet has a dramatically transformed interior, designed and crafted with every modern convenience. Set amidst 30 acres of grounds just north of Dunfermline, the ancient Capital of Scotland, Balmule House provides the highest standards of luxury accommodation in opulent surroundings. With several stunning reception rooms, beautiful formal gardens and picturesque views in all directions, we have the perfect venue for your getaway or special occasion. Rarely will you ever find a building with such a rich heritage. Nor will you often see a home with such quality and comfort built into every last detail. To find both in one home is simply unheard of. So while the solid stone walls of this Fife tower house hold the history of every past resident, this is no museum piece. This is a living, breathing home for you to enjoy.

We had our wedding at Balmule House on 19th January 2019 and could not recommend it highly enough. We stayed at the house for the full weekend and Franc, Duncan and Michael looked after us from the second we arrived till the second we left. They exceeded our expectations beyond

Just wonderful. Franc and Michael were perfect hosts. We had the house to ourselves - which, so near Valentine's Day, really surprised us - and they generously upgraded us to the master suite, which was just about the loveliest room we've ever slept in. The bed was so

My husband booked an overnight stay at Balmule House as part of my weekend birthday celebrations. We were in the Yellow room which was just beautiful and with a ‘huge’ luxurious bathroom and high quality toiletries. The house is set in lovely, peaceful surroundings and our hosts

I don’t even know where to begin. The Elemis toiletries in the bathrooms, the most perfect power shower I’ve ever experienced, the borders biscuits with the coffee machines, the overly accommodating owners, the aga, the impeccably decorated and kept rooms, the bottles of water

This was our second visit and we will surely be back. This is one of the finest hotels in Scotland. The rooms are luxurious yet homely, and incredibly quiet and peaceful. The staff are friendly and relaxed hosts, yet very attentive. If for some reason you feel the need to

Hi Alex, Many thanks for getting in touch and apologies for the slow reply. We do offer a dish of the day and we would let you know in advance what this would be. We don't have a bar and you're most welcome to bring your own wine. Kind regards, Franc

Hi, I got married here and happily tell you we had a wonderful day. For us the split across rooms worked really well, we used the ceremony room for a DIY Photo Booth, sweet stand and our cake. It all flowed really well, as we wanted a more relaxed house party type feel for our day. We had a 2 piece band, and a DJ which fitted in well into the space and worked really well at getting everyone on the dance floor. You do need to use one of the caterers recommended, they will also supply a drinks package. Thanks
