“excellent farmhouse B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Just returned from a week's stay at Tambowie farm and cannot recommend it highly enough. Situated a few miles outside Glasgow but within easy reach of the city. Accommodation is elegantly decorated and well maintained. There is ample sitting room in the guests' lounge with wonderful views of the farm and Campsie Fells beyond. The beautifully appointed bedrooms are spotless and professionally serviced. Irene and Colin have the knack of making guests feel at home by creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Breakfast is taken in the farmhouse kitchen and the cooking is of a high standard. In short - Tambowie offers 1st class B & B accommodation. Will will certainly be staying there again should we be visiting Glasgow.

There were a number of family that stayed in the B&B in February. The rooms were of superb quality and they would not be out of place in a good hotel. Irene and Colin were excellent hosts providing a lovely breakfast, nothing was too much trouble for them (within reason). The B&B itself is situated with spectacular views of the surrounding Campsie mountain range. I can not recommend Tambowie Farm highly enough and if we need to we will stay there again.

This is my second stay here, this time I stayed two nights in mid November. The room was immaculate.Very comfortable bed. I didn't have the en suite but this didn't matter, the bathroom I used was fabulous.Great breakfast. Irene and Colin are excellent hosts and I will be staying there again. Thank you.

This B & B is very peaceful with a lovely outlook back toward Glasgow. The garden is very pleasant to sit out in and enjoy the view. Hosts were just lovely and the breakfast was outstanding. The only way our stay could have been better would have been to have our own bathroom so try to get the room with the en suite. We booked three rooms and all were very comfortable. The conservatory is a lovely little place to sit and read if weather turns etc. Highly recommended and excellent pubs not far away and also Glasgow by car or train.

Room Tip: Try and get en suite room if you prefer.

A spotless B&B and we had a lovely large ensuite room, with a shower room, tea/coffee making facilities and a 40 inch flat screen tv!

Irene and Colin were excellent hosts proving very helpful to us and they provided a lovely breakfast in their farmhouse kitchen. Their property which had excellent views over the countryside was not far from Glasgow (we went in by train about 15/20 minutes) and also near Loch Lomond and the Trossachs the other way.

We really enjoyed it and if we are passing again, I know where we will head for!!

We stayed at the Tambowie Farm B&B for three nights several weeks ago, and just loved our stay there. It was a B&B that could accommodate 9 of us, as we were meeting up with extended family at that time, and we were comfortably able to enjoy four of the rooms in this lovely B&B. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated with picturesque views of the green hills and sheep in the neighboring farm. The garden was beautifully landscaped and there was a sun room, or back porch area, that overlooked the garden, with a glimpse of Glasgow in the distance. The breakfasts were delicious and Irene and Colin were very helpful and gracious. Irene was able to arrange a taxi for us at the last moment, to take us home from a late night at the Edinburgh Tattoo, when we decided to take the train into the city rather than drive. She had even lent us a mobile/cell phone when we needed it, so that we could contact our taxi driver after the show. She was patient with all my questions with directions and places to park when we did drive into the city, and she promptly responded to all of my emails when planning our trip.

The B&B is located about a half hour from the international airport in Glasgow and it is located a couple of miles from the train station in Milngavie (which we learned was pronounced Milgi!). Milngavie is a small suburb of Glasgow, with everything from a bank/ATM, a Marks & Spencer’s, a great Indian restaurant and a nice pub at the Cross Keys where we had several great dinners. I highly recommend a stay at Tambowie and we hope very much to return for a stay again, on our next trip to Scotland.

Room Tip: All the rooms were lovely. We happened to be in the room on the 2nd floor with the private bathroom...

Tambowie farm is a great B&B but a bit far from Glasgow. Some roads were diverted when we were driving to tambowie as a result took us a lot of time to get to the place - the GPS also did not recognize the place. But once we got there, we were delighted to see the place - the views from the room are amazing - the room is huge, very comfortable and well stocked up. Hosts are very nice and kind, breakfast is good.

Would recommend it highly but for the fact that getting there can be a bit of an issue.
