This is a happy place. The estate has it's own place in the community, with allotments for local people, classes in various crafts, festivals with different themes and social gardening events. Everyone is invited to share a little part of something you would not have had access to in previous ages. We stayed in the East Wing, with a huge... More

My wife & I have stayed all over the world & we keep coming back year after year. The moment you enter it feels like home. From the history to the incredible scenery & very helpful staff. This is just a place to forget your troubles for a few days. Enjoy & experience it. You will not regret it.

Excellent place we stayed in the blue room with four poster bed basically have a wing of the house to yourself. Great gardens to walk in and forest leading to the beach. Plenty of beautiful seaside towns to visit near by Crail Anstruther and St Andrews

We have stayed here a few times. Most recently the same weekend as their excellent Cambolitious Beer Festival. Absolutely beautiful grounds that lead to the tranquil beach. We stayed in an apartment (West wing) which was well equipped and very comfortable. A unique experience of staying in a grand, but family home.

I consider myself very lucky to have been able to spend a night at the Cambo House... and very unlucky that I didn't have more time to stay longer... I arrived late afternoon, driving up the long windy, track through the trees which eventually opened up to provide a wonderful view of the front of the house. I stopped to... More

Just returned from 2 nights in the yellow room at Cambo. One of the largest bedrooms we have ever stayed in the four poster bed was very comfortable. So impressed with the history in the house. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We walked in the gardens and saw the tail end of the snowdrops wonderful. Nice little café... More

Sadly we didn't stay at Cambo, but enjoyed an afternoon visit. Food very good value in the café and lots of choice as far as plants and snowdrops were concerned to buy. At this time of the year the snowdrops are a picture. However, there is so much at Cambo that a visit at any time will be worthwhile.

Just returned from a first visit and 4 day stay at Cambo. Wonderful accommodation in the warm, comfortable and superbly equipped "Lower Servants" quarters where we enjoyed relaxation around a roaring coal fire (fuel included) in our lounge area each evening. The snowdrops throughout the grounds are indeed spectacular and so many varieties to see as you walk around the... More

First visit to Cambo but will definitely make a point of returning. Visited on a beautiful Sunny day which helped considerably. Snow drops were spectacular and I had no idea there were so many varieties. The walk down to the beach along the wooded glen with thousands of snow drops in full flower was very spectacular and the soup and... More

Had a lovely walk along the coastal path at Kingsbarns this week and stopped off at Cambo to see the snowdrops and have some lunch. Havent been there for about 20 plus years. Lunch was really nice, good home made lentil soup and a roast beef and salad roll at a reasonable price. The snowdrops are fabulous and there is... More
