“Slightly tired and in need of some TLC”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The house externally very impressive as were the public rooms and the kitchen area however the bedrooms , especially those on the ground floor, were in need of some modernising if that is the correct word. There was a lack of wardrobes and those rooms were very small.The lounges were inviting as were the dining rooms but the bedrooms were a disappointment.

Toftcombs Mansion was the setting for our friend's hen weekend. It was amazing. We didn't leave the house at all - it was cosy yet spacious and big enough for us all without us feeling lost!!

The meal we had on Saturday night which was cooked by Isaac and his team was so so so good! If you get the chance - take it. It's super!

There was everything we needed - 18 ladies and we were never short on plates/glasses etc even whilst we had the dishwasher on. 2 large fridge/freezers meant noone had to leave anything out either. Lovely.

We loved Toftcombs - a great find - I wanna go back already!!

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the amazing property. From the moment we arrived we felt totally at home in Toftcombs, the house is perfect for a family stay, all the rooms were furnished to a high standard, the place was very well equipped and immaculate throughout. All the family enjoyed their time in the house and we are looking forward to a return trip. thank you for letting us use your lovely home

Toftcombs is a beautifully furnished mansion house near the very nice town of Biggar. It has fantastic views from the main rooms and 11 bedrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Toftcombs with our extended family. Isaac and his staff (particularly Karl) did an outstanding job catering for our group throughout our week's stay. Isaac is a very talented chef who was willing to be very flexible and accomodating with our group. We would definitely return.

“Great place, we all loved it.”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This was a weekend away for, let's say, a group of mature ladies. And we had a terrific time. Everything was provided, the fire was on when we arrived, and we just settled in for a lovely comfortable stay. Yes, the house is big, but it isn't intimidating. Quirky in places, but definitely welcoming.

“Luxury mansion perfect for large group”

I was treated to a wonderful weekend at Toftcombs for my hen party. We were a group of 20 women, and when booking old houses of this size we expected 'shabby chic' - which Toftcombs definitely wasn't - it was very warm and homely and was a real treat with all the finishing touches. The place was spotless, and cosy, not what you expect in an old Scottish mansion.

The owner Claire was excellent in helping my sisters with the booking, and she met us on arrival to give us the tour, and even provided some local treats. The banqueting hall made every meal so special. And each room was welcoming with roaring fires, books, games, and lovely furniture. The bedrooms were very comfortable with massive beds and we could easily have accomodated more people in the group. The en suite rooms, rolltop bath and turret made this even more comfortable.

The kitchen - wow! An amazing country kitchen which it would be a shame not to cook in. There were all types of equipment, crockery, glasses. Every detail thought of.

There was wifi, heating, coal and wood fires, brollies, local information. A very well thought out and welcoming place.

Highly recommended!

Just back from an amazing girls weekend staying at Toftcombs, which was the perfect destination for a group of 18 girls. The house is absolutely stunning and I loved seeing how thrilled my guests were with the accommodation.

Claire was exceptionally helpful via email when booking and ensured we had everything we needed for our stay. She also honoured an out of date deal which i had seen on a website which was exceptionally kind and made a huge difference to what the girls and I were able to do with our budget.

I was delighted to meet with Phil who had lit the fires, had the heating and lights on and had a welcome basket ready for us which was a lovely touch. He was also on hand with any information we needed about the house.

The house has an incredible amount of kitchen and dining paraphenalia which we put to good use having two dinner parties during our stay. I think everyone was quite impressed that anything we could possibly have needed was in the kitchen. Phil also ensured we had additional tableclothes which was brilliant. I was also able to take the leaves out of the large dining table and have the room free for a celidh so the spaces proved to be very adaptable for what we needed

The grounds at Toftcombs were also perfect for us as we held a Highland Games in the large garden. Although we didnt have pets with us I believe Toftcombs is dog friendly with a gate which can be closed to secure the grounds.

The only slight negative I would say is that the cleaning isnt quite up to scratch. I appreciate that with a house this size and with so many wonderful decorations and pieces it must be difficult to keep everything clean and tidy however I did find that the downstairs rooms were in need of dusting and much of the glasswear and plates had to be cleaned before using. I appreciate this may have been from previous guests not cleaning items before leaving however I do think it is up to Toftcombs to check over these things. All of bedrooms and bathrooms however all appeared spotless and were beautifully presented with lots of throws and cushions on the beds and plenty of towels.

I absolutely would not stop this from me visiting again though and I hope to have a family weekend at Toftcombs in the near future.

I know that Phil and Claire are currently making some improvements to the house with a new bedroom and bathroom going in and I cant wait to see everything completed next time I visit!
