“Beautiful, welcoming, relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at Arneidly Steading in 2009. We are planning on returning to Scotland with friends and hope to stay here againin 2013. Mandy was so welcoming. We felt like we were staying with an old friend. The food was delicious. She made me want my very own Aga! The garden was beautiful and the conversation was wonderful. This was a fantastic place to stay and we were sad to leave. I would recommend to everyone. This place was perfect in every possible way.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

This B & B had all that anyone could ever want. A lovely location, warm and welcoming host, fantastic breakfasts (and I mean FANTASTIC), storybook garden, and a beautiful, beautifully appointed room. We were there during the summer, and the wonderful blackout window shades were a godsend. This was such a find, and I high recommend it.

Room Tip: The twin room is beautiful and very spacious. Fantastic bathroom.

Our stay at Ardneidly Steading was very pleasant. It’s in rural Aberdeenshire, just outside the pretty little village of Monymusk, and it was one of the cleanest places we’ve stayed at. There are two large, warm rooms, both on the upper floor, and both with multiple skylight windows, so adequate ventilation.

The Twin room had a bath and shower, and the Double room a shower. Both had the usual hot drink facilities, but also some lovely elderflower cordial and Tunnock’s wafers. The Aga-cooked breakfasts were hearty, with homemade bread and preserves, all served in the lovely dining room (part of the open kitchen with adjacent sitting room).

The garden is lovely, and the views all around the property are panoramic and fantastic. On arrival, Mandy welcomed us with a pot of tea and cake, and together with Colin, they made very genial hosts, making our stay very pleasant.

Stayed here as part of a family gathering and had a fantastic time. Beautiful setting with marvellous views over the surrounding countryside, luxurious bedroom with Tunnocks wafers to snack on, huge ensuite bathroom with bath and power shower, log fires, fresh scrambled eggs for breakfast ..... just wish I could have stayed longer.

From start to finish, Mandy and Colin took special care of us. We were helped with our luggage to the luxurious room (or suite, as it should probably be called!) and left to settle in. Noticed the great views from all windows, and lovely touches everywhere, like magazines and books to read, paintings on the walls (which we later found out were painted by Mandy - talented lady!) chocolate wafer biscuits in a tin, lovely smellies and super- fluffy towels. Came downstairs to tea and homemade cake in front of a log fire, and Mandy told us all about the house and surrounding area. We found a great place to eat in Alford, 10mins drive away and came back to an early night in beds to sink into. In the morning, we came down to a cheery 'Good Morning' and a very tasty breakfast made by Mandy. There was homemade jams and berries from the garden, and fresh eggs from their hens.

This was the best place I have stayed in for a very long time. The house, owners, and surroundings were just fab. One piece of advice for future guests: Check their website first for directions to the house, as it can be a bit tricky to find. More than worth it, however!!

We were travelling with our two young children in Scotland and had the good fortune of staying at Ardneidly Steading in Monymusk. Our children felt instantly at home thanks to the warmth of the owners. The converted steading was stunning with spectacular views looking to the south. The gardens were gorgeous and lush. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. My entire family felt relaxed and at home at Ardneidly Steading. We highly recommend it.
