“Simply "The Best"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

If you want to ............experience life in a place which could have come straight from "Grand Designs"
If you want to ...................try a wet room straight from the pages of "Ideal Home"
If you want to........... stay in an immaculate room, with all the extras you would expect along the road at "The Old Course" Hotel, plus some you won't get there.
If you .................love a freshly cooked, beautifully presented breakfast with more choice than most people dream of and at a time that suits you.
If you want ................a great nights peaceful sleep, away from traffic, revellers and celebratory golfers.
If you want to.................. be made welcome by caring grown up people, into their home, who would like you to enjoy yourself with the freedom to come and go as you please.
If you want to ..............do all of the above for the same price a some very ordinary hotels around Fife and in most cases a lot less.
Form an orderly queue at the gates to the beautifully manicured garedens at this fabulous establishment.

If you like to ........take a take away Indian and a big "carry-oot" back to your room and laze about in your boxers
If you .........have a tribe of unruly kids
If you ..................just have one kid who hasn't learnt the difference between right and wrong or you just can't be bothered to spend time with them.
If you ..........don't understand the rewards available to people who work hard and expect some respect.
Please go somewhere else. Mary and John the owners will not be the least bit upset and would hate to be responsible for you not having a great time.

We stayed for two nights and I can honestly say it is without any shadow of doubt the very best B&B we have ever stayed in, better than almost every hotel we have stayed in and is now certainly the first place we would chose in a 75 mile radius of Cupar.

Mary, thank you for everything, you made our stay an absolute pleasure, we will return, hopefully the queue at the gate will always be long enough to reward you for your efforts but short enough for your repeat visitors to get in. Thank You.

Ferrymuir Stables in Cupar Fife Scotland, This is a privately owned home, an old stables that has been magnificently and lovingly renovated by the present owners, Mary & John.
Quite simply, I can assure you will not find better, from the homely welcome to your every need is catered for, its as though you are part of their family.
The house, rooms etc are magnificent, spacious and very modern, even lap tops in the rooms for your use.
I have traveled the world and stayed in 5 Star hotels that do not meet this standard.
You are afforded your own privacy yet Mary was always on hand if there was anything you needed, the Breakfast is the best I have tasted, full Scottish, Haggis, Kippers, tea / coffee, juice and toast all included and Mary's whisky marmalade is superb, we have stayed twice and would not consider anywhere else when visiting St Andrews. John is a real laugh and great for local advise.

Room Tip: Three rooms to let and all are of the same high standard, you have no concern on which is allocated.

Although our expectations were high before we arrived to B&B, they were exceeded. Everything was wonderful, and not only wonderful, very stylish. And the hosts were extremely nice as well. The breakfast was superb. We have never visited a better B&B. There was even a laptop in the spacious room! I have two small suggestions to the lovely hosts, though: It would be helpful to know before arriving that credit cards are not accepted. And the wifi would be even more useful, if it would be faster.

After coming from our stay at the 5 star Turnberry Hotel Resort, we luckily found our way to Ferrymuir Stable--a 5 star B&B, without a doubt. The accomodations in the amazing restoration of an old stables were top notch, with thought put into every aspect of the renovations. The rooms were spacious, as were the ensuite bathrooms, and both were furnished with multiple accoutrements that made the stay even more comfortable. Mary & John, the hosts, made us feel very welcomed and went out of their way to ensure that our every need was met. Mary prepared an incredible breakfast feast that definitely topped our meals in the Fife section of Scotland. She also gave us some wonderful recommendations for golf, a great scotch distillery, and for evening meals. The two golfing recommendations were fantastic--with one of them being an unforgettable experience, playing Kingarock, a 9 hole course that not only was in the original condition of any course in the 1890's, but provided you with original clubs, bags, balls, and tees from that period. I would return to Ferrymuir in a heartbeat!

I was booked in here for two days by my client whilst on a recent business trip and what an unexpected treat!

This 200 year old derelict stable building has been lovingly and stunningly restored by Mary and John and transformed into the most wonderful home and 5 star B&B accommodation. I have travelled the world a fair bit and seen and stayed in some lovely places, but Ferrymuir Stables is honestly up there with some of the best of them.

John and Mary give a perfect example of how a property that was on the point of being lost forever has been restored into a perfect blend of traditional on the outside yet with contemporary, super comfortable but sympathetic styling on the inside. Please to ask them to show you the pictures of how it was before they started, it will amaze you.

The rooms are inviting, with decor of the highest standard and comprehensive facilities that would put many a top hotel to shame. Underfloor heating and hot water are provided from a ground heat pump system and each room has an individual temperature control. It is so nice to walk into the shower and feel the warm floor under your feet. There was even a laptop with internet access in the room and so many other nice thoughtful little touches that really set this place apart.

John and Mary are wonderful, friendly hosts who will share their beautiful home with you and give you an experience that you will not forget. The breakfast was superb and comprehensive with a huge list of things to choose from. A great start to each day!

The property is ideally located in a quiet semi-rural spot just outside Cuparmuir and about 1 mile from the centre of Cupar. So it would be walkable for those so inclined or just a few minutes by car. This is a beautiful area with St Andrews just 10 miles or so away and many other lovely places to visit nearby such as Falkland.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ferrymuir Stables as an equally perfect place to stay either for business or pleasure.

Thank you so much.

My heading says it all really; today we returned from a night away at Ferrymuir which really stands head and shoulders above any other B&B in our experience of travelling through Britain. The previous 2 reviews echo what we feel and we can't wait to return as the hosts are lovely people and went the extra mile to make our stay special. Thank you so much.

Absolutely loved this bed and breakfast. The building, an old stables, was beautifully renovated and the rooms were decorated to a very high standard. Our room was large, very warm and comfy with a big ensuite bathroom. There were lots of extras in the room, including fresh fruit, a small fridge with treats and a netbook. The breakfast was really good, lots of choice and very filling. Mary and John were very welcoming and very helpful. We were here for a wedding but we certainly want to come back and stay to see more of the area.
