Spent another long weekend at Ruthven House, and just as good as the past. Sometimes the novelty factor wears off, but not for this holiday venue. First class in all departments, good surroundings, nice people, good value, excellent food, and just very relaxing with nothing too much trouble for Colin and Fiona.

Fiona was a very helpful and welcoming host. She is also a brilliant chef and provided home-cooked evening meals of a very high standard. My room was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Breakfast times were flexible and ideally suited to my early walking schedules. Bella, the cat, provided extra amusement. This is a B&B I will want to return to... More

Wonderful accommodation in the must beautiful peaceful setting. We had 1 of the cottages and 2 friends were staying in the house - breakfast was excellent. Fiona could not have been more helpful and kind. Very impressed. The cottage was well equipped, had a patio area and comfortable beds. We had our horses corralled nearby and were riding through the... More

Stayed here for four nights and as bed and breakfast places go it's right up there with the good ones. I am certain anyone who stays here will not be disappointed. What makes this place exceptional is Fiona, the hostess. If she offers to cook supper for you and you appreciate excellent food, do not refuse. Her culinary skills are... More

We booked a room together with our 13 month old daughter. Since a cottage was available, we got to stay there for the night. Was a lovely surprise! We received a warm welcome and breakfast in the morning was complete. Nothing was to much, even some special attention to our daughter.

Saying this is the best quality-price possible is true but just not enough. The house had everything we needed and a few extras more. The owners pay lots of attention to detail and at the same time they have a very practical thinking. We spent 2 weeks in a self-catering cottage and the experience has been just perfect. But if...
