Staying at the Arden Country House all ways feel like coming home; whilst this is only our second stay at this well established B&B, rest assure we will be coming back for many years to come. The proprietor of the property Beth Cruickshank is such a Darling of a person who makes you feel at home with every turn. Small gestures after a long journey (form Haarlem, NL), such as fresh tea/ coffee upon arrival and warm scones outlines the intimacy of a loving B&B versus a big hotel chain. Plain and simple, we/I love coming to stay at the Arden Country House. For your benefit I note the below points and hope that it will inspire you to go and have a visit at one of Scotland’s best B&B!!!
Food: The morning breakfast are hearty and filling and leaves you well equipped for a day of exploring. Literally, no food required prior to 3:00pm. But do be warn, the breakfast’s are Dangerously (Deliciously) Good!!! So eat with caution – but if you’re Hill Walkers and Climbers like us then do fill up, you’ll have no regret and your body will surely thank you.
Accommodation/ property grounds: The house, the rooms are all tastefully decorated and particularly comfortable (welcoming). The ambiance is both calming and tranquil which relaxes you instantly upon entrance, nostalgic to say the least. The property is picturesque and the gardens are beautiful, filled with wonderful pines and spruce trees in addition to numerous plants and flora which reinforces the exquisiteness of the property and area!
Location: Linlithgow is an excellent base for exploring, giving its central location. The city itself is rural and is filled with numerous hidden trails and lochs to enjoy. All packed into a very warm community filled with sociable people and all the amenities one could require, i.e. restaurants, pubs, grocery store, bank etc. Edinburgh city center is within a 30min car ride or a 20min train ride – provides quick access to all the tourist adventures.
Success with your travels, and until the next review - Live, Laugh and Love.
