Our family recently had a large wedding at Cambo Estate. The huge house is ideal for dozens of people to stay under the same roof, with various wings, suites, living rooms, kitchens, and function rooms. Each person or family can have privacy when needed, or share meals and places to hang out. There are three large rooms for the wedding...

We rented the west wing apartment for 4 adults and 3 kids. It was great the little girls 2 immediately turned into princesses. Unfortunately we did not turn into Kings and Queens but into the staff of the princesses. The house is lovely and it was a unique experience to stay in this old building. Beds are comfortable. The gardens...

If you ever wanted to know what it was like to live like Mr Carson and Mrs Hughes from Downton Abbey, then book the Orchard or Garden rooms. The bathrooms are modern, (though they have had to fitted into the cupboards and under the stairs), but the furniture and fittings are pre-war. This includes the light fittings. I think one...

A hidden gem of North East Fife!! This garden is nothing short of stunning and has to be one of the top gardens in Scotland. The variety of the plants is incredible and there are numerous different walks which cant possibly be done in one visit. You could easily spend half a day walking round and still not see everything....

And what a treat it was, from start to finish. Grounds wonderful, walk to the beach stunning. The glancing area has a fairy magic quality. Nothing too much trouble and Scottish breakfast a delight! The family are so helpful, accommodating and I heartily recommend this wonderful home as a venue for a clan gathering, or even a small intimate one!...

I've stayed in the Tents now twice in the last month and have had two disappointing experiences! The decor in tents is lovely however on both occasions decided it too much hassle to cook out as the kitchen area too far away from the toilet block for washing up etc ! Kids loved the estate and roaming around. It would've...

Recently spent a night in the Bell tents with my youngest, a friend and her child. As a glamping and camping newbie I had nothing to compare the experience with, but hope you'll find the following comments helpful nevertheless...

Having been a regular visitor to the East Neuk, I was surprised to discover the wonderful Cambo Estate which I had somehow missed. We stayed overnight - b&b in the garden suite of the large country house which has lovely suites as well as giving you access to a fabulous lounge, snooker room and amazing gardens and woodland. The beautiful...

Beautiful house and most charming staff and host. We were due to stay two nights but unfortunately had to unexpectedly head home. The location is superb, it's very scenic and peaceful. The house is full of antiques and artefacts and very interesting. We were there in June and the house was very warm due to the heating being on, bit...
