“Lovely cottage, beautiful setting”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ross House. It is beautiful cottage very well equipped with plenty of books, games and guides about the area. The kitchen is especially well kitted out with everything you could need and we enjoyed the bean coffee and bubbles. Loved the village with its old palace and gardens. Loved the location for exploring Fife. Loved the high quality linen and toiletries not rationed in tiny bottles. We would love to return and are already making a list for our next Falkland adventure. Only complaint was a week was not quite long enough so booking for two weeks next year.

“Such a beautiful place and house, which could be made even better.”
Reviewed July 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This house looks fab on photos and does not disappoint. Every modern need is taken care of, although lounge TV is non HDMI and there is no DVD player for those who stay indoors. Treats are available on arrival, courtesy of the owner. The advice not to use underfloor heating was difficult as the kitchen floor in particular was very cold in the mornings! Beds in both double rooms are wonderfully comfortable.
Falkland is a beautiful town full of customs old and new. Ideally situated for touring Perth and Kinross area amongst others. Local pubs serve great food, Lomond tavern specials are not to be missed, booking is recommended.
Owner should be aware of the "musty" smell especially downstairs, likely due to no one having recently stayed. The twin beds are in the downstairs room which may benefit from swopping with the upstairs lounge, currently very dark. Lighting could benefit from thoughtful adjustments.
The garden was badly overgrown, so we were unable to use the BBQ on the date we had hoped. Also became entangled in a rose bush trying to access the key safe! However, the owner quickly sent an efficient gardener who did her best but only had time to clear one part of the back garden.
If a "return incentive" was offered we would be very tempted!

Thanks very much for your helpful review. We are always looking for ways to improve and so welcome all feedback good and bad. Glad your overall impression of the cottage and village is a favourable one and we can only apologise for the areas in which you felt we fell short. The underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms can be a god-send on chilly mornings and we are sorry you felt discouraged to use it. Please be assured this was not our intention and we supply usage instructions in the cottage welcome booklet. We turned them off for the summer as when the weather is good, the heat they produce can become stifling and we were concerned about receiving complaints to this effect. Musty smells can be a problem in very old buildings and we have now investigated the source (an ancient drain in the utility room which needed sanitising) and applied liberal amounts of caustic soda to dispel them. It's interesting you suggest swapping the living room with the downstairs bedroom as this is how we had the rooms arranged whilst living there ourselves but when we converted to holiday letting, we felt the downstairs room was a little space-constrained for larger parties of five or six. As for the garden, apologies our usual gardener has been unwell and we had to find someone to step in at short notice. We will also be dealing with the vicious rose that in true fairy-tale tradition seems to have got out of control and wrapped itself disobligingly around the key safe. We hope these experiences were not too off-putting and would be very willing to offer you a return incentive should you wish to stay again. Very best wishes, Tim.

“Home from home!”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The minute we set foot in Ross House we felt instantly at home. The house has been decorated beautifully throughout. The welcoming kitchen us fantastic and we especially liked the underfloor heating!! Comfortable beds and relaxing bedrooms. Amazing shower and bathrooms!! The house had a lot of charm and character too! Loved sitting in the little room looking out to the garden. The owners left us lots of little things to get us started - which was a really welcoming nice touch. We could have moved in here - if you ever selling - let us know!!!!! Many many thanks. Ps. The village of Falkland itself is beautiful - quiet but full of charm and welcoming residents in the surrounding restaurants, bars, shops etc... We were very happy here and lots for kids to do in the surrounding area!!

“Beautiful cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Absolutely wonderful holiday in the idyllic village of Falkland. We were made extremely welcome at Ross House on arrival. The house was beautiful particularly the exceptionally well kitted out kitchen and bathrooms. The secluded and secure garden gave us peace of mind for our 3 children and the lavender and mint smells from the garden were just lovely. We would highly recommend this cottage not simply on the basis of its quality but also due to the owners informal approach and ease of contact both before and throughout our stay.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This house was exactly what we hoped for and more, in an old historical village with the ability to walk to Falkland Palace and all restaurants and pubs. We arrived to a card and a wonderful welcome basket from the owner Tim. The house was amazing, old Scotland from the outside but very well modernized inside including underfloor heating in kitchen and bathrooms, great for us Floridians on a cold morning.

We loved the beautiful, quiet location of this village. The Ross House was everything we hoped it would be--unique, beautiful, comfy beds, beautiful bathrooms, well-stocked kitchen, centrally located in Falkland, heated tile floors:))
