Our family stayed in August 2015. Claire, your hospitality was beyond outstanding. Your choice of food, portions and service was beyond brilliant. What a great shame our visit was only for such a short time. I just loved being spoilt by you. Mrs Mathias

My family and I stayed for 3 nights whilst relocating home. Claire and her family made us feel very welcome, their home is beautiful. The rooms were exceptionally clean, very large in size and had everything you'd need and more. They were just perfect. Freshly cooked breakfast every morning with a great and varied selection to choose from. Even if... More

Claire and her family welcomed us for our two night stay more like relatives than customers. Our dog was treated like family too, and Claire went over and above any hostess I've ever come across. She helped us book dinner, taxis, and even walked our dog whilst we were away at a wedding. The price was fabulous for such a... More

After the adventure of driving from Edinburgh airport (keep to LEFT of road) it was a warm welcome and relief to find Claire waiting for us. Barney gave us a warm, and noisy, welcome as well. This was a family trip with my two teenage daughters, one way to St. Andrews for the month. Claire so very nice and warm,... More

I stayed here 2 nights ago, whilst on business in Edinburgh. I'm so glad the Edinburgh hotels were booked up or I wouldn't have looked outside the city for accommodation. It's a beautiful house on a lovely estate. I was given a warm welcome by Claire and Barney the dog. The room was really nice, and I was delighted to... More

We stayed in the family room which was very comfortable. We were warmly welcomed by Claire and she had kindly left a dram for us in our room. We would highly recommend this B&B.

Having travelled 7 hours on the motorway from Buckinghamshire and arriving at 11.30 pm we were warmly greeted by Claire. The rooms are lovely, warm and welcoming and so was the wee dram of whiskey that awaited us in our room.... Everything is there that you need and if there is something that you need Claire will help. Breakfast was... More
