Overnighted here at the end of Oct 2013 when visiting rellies in Scotland. The MOST COMFORTABLE bed of our entire holiday in a very beautiful setting and just a run down the hill to Linlithgow and its restaurants. The breakfast was also sumptuous. Beth made us very welcome and her husband John crisped the brekky bacon to perfection. Linlithgow was a great town to wander around in with its historic palace and Loch. Loved it.

Room tip: Make sure you get good directions or take a GPS!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and I am so pleased to hear that you found the bed so comfortable. It was lovely to meet you both and I too am sorry that you only had one night with us, but your travels sounded most interesting …. you will just have to come back to Scotland one day.

Had three glorious nights at this B&B. Beth the land lady deserves all the awards she has received. The house is just lovely, stunning location, and beautifully furnished rooms. The breakfast is the best we have had anywhere and can only be classed as amazing. This is far superior to any luxury hotel we have stayed in. We can not recommend it highly enough.

Room tip: Any, they are all beautiful.

Staying at the Arden Country House all ways feel like coming home; whilst this is only our second stay at this well established B&B, rest assure we will be coming back for many years to come. The proprietor of the property Beth Cruickshank is such a Darling of a person who makes you feel at home with every turn. Small gestures after a long journey (form Haarlem, NL), such as fresh tea/ coffee upon arrival and warm scones outlines the intimacy of a loving B&B versus a big hotel chain. Plain and simple, we/I love coming to stay at the Arden Country House. For your benefit I note the below points and hope that it will inspire you to go and have a visit at one of Scotland’s best B&B!!!

Food: The morning breakfast are hearty and filling and leaves you well equipped for a day of exploring. Literally, no food required prior to 3:00pm. But do be warn, the breakfast’s are Dangerously (Deliciously) Good!!! So eat with caution – but if you’re Hill Walkers and Climbers like us then do fill up, you’ll have no regret and your body will surely thank you.

Accommodation/ property grounds: The house, the rooms are all tastefully decorated and particularly comfortable (welcoming). The ambiance is both calming and tranquil which relaxes you instantly upon entrance, nostalgic to say the least. The property is picturesque and the gardens are beautiful, filled with wonderful pines and spruce trees in addition to numerous plants and flora which reinforces the exquisiteness of the property and area!

Location: Linlithgow is an excellent base for exploring, giving its central location. The city itself is rural and is filled with numerous hidden trails and lochs to enjoy. All packed into a very warm community filled with sociable people and all the amenities one could require, i.e. restaurants, pubs, grocery store, bank etc. Edinburgh city center is within a 30min car ride or a 20min train ride – provides quick access to all the tourist adventures.

Success with your travels, and until the next review - Live, Laugh and Love.

Best regards,
Janis

Room tip: We love the galloway room - no reason in particular, its on the 2nd floor.

Wow, what an amazing review, thank you so much. It is such a wonderful compliment when guests choose to return and I thank you both for choosing Arden County House during your recent trip to Scotland. As always it is great to hear about your travels and most recently about your gorgeous new home and all of the wonderful renovations.

By choosing to book directly we offer complimentary afternoon tea with home baking, I am so glad you enjoyed the scones.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a 2014 filled with new adventures. I do hope 2014 will be the year when all of your wishes come true.

The nicest bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. Beth is one of the most accommodating hosts I have ever met, including staying up late as we were delayed. We also had the date wrong which she sorted out for us without any fuss whatsoever. Magnificent rooms and a breakfast most 5 star hotels would have been proud of. Locally sourced produce, loads of options... Think it was 37.

One word to describe it... wow!

Will stay there again for sure.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely B&B with our two adult children in July. We arrived tired after an over night flight and were greeted with a delicious and filling tea. On the menu was tablet, which we had never had before and three of us have not tried it yet because our daughter ate it all! Our kind host, Beth, emailed us the recipe so that our daughter could make tablet at home.

Our rooms were very comfortable, attractive and clean. We had a great night's sleep and awoke to an amazing and plentiful breakfast. Beth chatted with us and gave us some excellent tips. What a great way to begin our trip to Scotland.
