“Perfect place to stay for a large group”
Reviewed 23 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Ladywell House is a very comfortable home, full of character, set in beautiful surroundings.
Ten of us spent a very warm, comfortable week in this well equipped and extremely well furnished house. It is spacious, full of charm and provides special places for everyone which is important when you are in a large group. The owner lives nearby and Is welcoming and very helpful at all times.
Highly recommended holiday home.

“Brilliant accommodation, brilliant weekend.”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We rented Ladywell House as a surprise for my wife's birthday. Our group consisted of children and adults ranging from 7 years to 80 years and everyone had a great stay. The large walled garden is ideal for the children to play safely and the house is large enough for everyone to have there own space.
The house itself is in immaculate condition with excellent facilities. We cooked most of our meals and everything was available to cater for a large group. The large dining room was ideal for our big family meal. There is also a dining area within the conservatory which looks onto the lovely garden. It was nice to sit with the sun shining (honest) eating breakfast.
Duncan the owner was available at any time, if we required any advice or information.
If you are thinking about going away for a family party, or intend do a bit of sight seeing in the Fife area, I couldn't recommend Ladywell House highly enough. Excellent accommodation with first class facilities

Liked best: It felt like a home.
Liked least: If everyone was showering at the same time the water ran cold. This in no way detracts from the standard of the accommodation.

“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed at Ladywell house for my husband's birthday with group of friends and family. House is beautiful, very grand and impeccably presented. Lovely open fire which was great on a cold January evening. Lots of parking if there are multiple cars. Beautiful en-suite in the master bedroom, just a shame I didn't have time to lounge around in the bath! Duncan was very helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

Village of Falkland is great for a visit, lots of nice craft shops, cafes and pubs. Some of the group made the most of being on the doorstep of the Lomond Hills with a great day of walking.

Can't wait for an excuse to back although hopefully in the summer this time!

“Perfect location for a special occasion”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just spent a wonderful week at Ladywell House with our daughters, sons-in-law and our 4 grandchildren. We couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. A delightful spacious house full of character with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. The kitchen was very well equipped and we quickly got the hang of the aga. Our grandchildren loved the walled garden and had great fun on the trampoline and swing set. The owner, Duncan, was very welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend Ladywell House.

A great place for your family get-together... The house is big enough for everyone to have space to spend alone, and together! We are very grateful for your review, and hope that you will return for the 50th Anniversary!

Take care

“Superb rental experience”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed with large group attending graduation at St. Andrew. Lovely house with great deal of character and history. Spacious bedrooms, comfortable beds, and large bathrooms. Living room with fireplace and well stocked bar. Well stocked kitchen with Aga stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. Washing machine and drying room. The nearby Falkland village, palace and estate make for good walking or jogging trails. Edinburgh, St. Andrews and Perth are all under an hour's drive. The host, Duncan, was always available and took great pains to make our stay comfortable.
