We stayed recently for a wedding nearby and our stay was superb! Duncan was a brilliant host and even made sure we would all get home at the end of the night. He went above and beyond. The room was lovely and very comfortable, and breakfast excellent.

Thanks so much for the kind words, and it was a pleasure to have you all to stay for the night. The extras are not extras at all, arranging taxis, providing information and treating our guests as friends is what we do - and it is appreciated by NEARLY all of those who come to stay.

In reality,it was very poor,the house itself, is pretty once owned by Princess Diana mother,so that must be its claim to fame.The rooms are well... More

My partner and his colleague stayed in this B&B after being told by the proprietor that this was an above average B&B. At £50/night, expectations were high, the house itself was very pretty and all comments regarding the interior are correct, it is very nice. However their rooms were cold with no heating on for the first two days, the... More

Awesome house with warm and welcoming fire ready in lounge. Extremely comfortable bedroom. Excellent breakfast with a unique twist. Perfectly situated as a central point to explore east side of central Scotland. Thoroughly recommend and will be going again.

Many thanks for your 'Grand' review, and delighted that everything was perfect. We are sadly winding up our B&B after 9 years and thousands of guests, and the house is now available as a self-catering let by the week.

Hi Was looking for somewhere to stay for 1 night whilst we travelled through Scotland from Cairnryan to Ballater. A friend recommended Ladywell House, Falkland. First question was where is Falkland? The answer is a forgotten wee village, located north of Edinburgh. It's like somewhere stuck in the Dickens period. Fantastic. Now onto Ladywell House. We arrived about 6pm and... More

Ladywell was a real highlight of our Scotland trip. A lovely warm and comfortable house with loads of charm and history. In the small quaint town of Falkland, the location allowed us to easily visit both St Andrews and Culross and a string of other small and picturesque coastal towns in just two days.
