“Owner!”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Whilst the house is very nice, it is expensive for what you get especially considering the below. Our stay was spoiled by the owner who (i) presented unreasonable terms of letting including very early check out time and extensive cleaning requirements the day prior to arrival, (ii) entered the property to check up on it several times during the stay, (iii) only returned the deposit upon request, and (iv) deducted a portion of the deposit for cleaning despite us complying with the already over the top cleaning requirements. As such, I would sadly not recommend anyone stay at this property.

Dear Patrick

Many thanks for the lovely words about the property. As is common for most self-catering properties, we provide Terms of Letting. This we have done for nearly 30 years. The Terms of Letting were sent to you 12 days prior to your arrival, on 4 June, by email. They listed cleaning requirements, and offered house-keeping during your stay. You stated that you didn't wish to have a house-keeper to assist, and we appreciate that some of our guests prefer to clean for themselves. Others do ask us to provide a house-keeper to assist. Departure times are 10.30 am (stated on our site), and this allows us to prepare the property to a very high standard, often remarked on by our grateful guests. This departure time was confirmed on 8 June (8 days prior to your arrival) by email, after you asked if you could depart later.

As your party were attending a wedding locally, and the wedding was on Saturday night, and departure on Sunday morning, some of your party were obviously not 'up to' stripping their own beds, tidying their mess, or putting a hoover around. You stated that some of your party were hung-over, and perhaps this didn't help!!

We made a small deduction from the good-housekeeping deposit (as laid out in our Terms of Letting) to pay for the extra cleaning required, and if all of your party had done 20 minutes of tidying then there would have been no charge.

My advice to you would have been to read the Terms of Letting, make your party aware of them.I suggest that you ask them for a financial contribution to cover the extra cleaning charged as a result of their incapacity to help.

I am so sorry that this marred your overall enjoyment of our wonderful, comfortable, well-equipped and beautiful house.

Kind regards

Duncan

We rented the house for a weekend with friends. It's lovely and spacious with great views, and is well-equipped for a big group. Close to the Lomond Hills for a walk, plus easy walking distance into Falkland where there are nice gift shops and tearooms as well as the Palace and Gardens to visit, and a short drive to St Andrews etc. So something for everyone. We loved the big sitting room with open fire, and the conservatory for a sunny breakfast-time. Duncan made us very welcome. We hope to come back next year.

“Great family rental property in Falkland”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

We rented Ladywell House for 5 nights for a large group of family and friends who were up in Falkland for the wedding of my daughter at Myres Castle. This is a great property for a large group with 6 bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 13 adults.

The quality of the accommodation is amazing - like a real family home. The huge kitchen, with aga, is amazingly well equipped and the drawing room, dining room, sitting room and conservatory provide huge space for family and friends.

The owner, Duncan, is on hand to help with everything from finding out how to use the aga to lighting the huge fire in the drawing room.

The garden is beautiful - we didn't really use the garden as the weather wasn't great when we were there but in the summer I can imagine it would be wonderful for BBQs.

The house is just a short walk from the centre of Falkland - a very pretty Fife town. It is also very well located for Myres Castle wedding guests.

Family rented the house for 9 nights and invited us for a weekend to help celebrate a birthday. The house is amazing it is in a beautiful setting with far reaching views.
Duncan was always at hand should he be needed and was very helpful with local info.
Falkland is a pretty village just a ten minute walk away, with several pubs, a convenience store and gift shops.

“A perfect home in a perfect place”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here for 10 days in August. There were 8 adults and 6 kids ranging from 3 to 13 and I can safely say that all enjoyed the house and the surrounding area. We have stayed in many large houses all over Scotland due to our family size and can honestly say that this house ranks among the best! Duncan has created a rental home with a truly personal touch that gives the place a homely, family feel ( something that a lot of large rental houses lack). He is also on hand to help with advice on the area, taking shopping deliveries in time for your arrival or a neighbourly chat. The house has plenty of space for everyone to get together and also plenty of space for groups to get away from each other if need be.... We particularly enjoyed the large sitting room ( with no TV ) which meant that the grown ups could sit in peace whilst the younger crowd enjoyed the TV room (and it's reclining chairs). As the house has recently made the transition from b&b to rental it comes with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen with a fantastic Aga range and all necessary pots and pans which makes cooking for a large group easy. Add to this a fantastic village with a palace, pubs, good restaurants and coffee houses, a children's playground and excellent scenic walks from your doorstep you need look no further, Ladywell House, Falkland and Fife make for an excellent holiday.
