My husband and I stayed at Cambo House for the first time and we couldn't have asked for better. From the moment we phoned up and booked to the moment we left, we were made to feel special. The apartment was spotless and had the bonus of an open fire in the lounge. The country walk was lovely (despite the...

A weekend away for my wife and I, rather cut short on the Sunday because I needed to travel for work. The welcome was friendly, but we were slightly disappointed not to be in main house; we were staying on a b&b basis, but were nevertheless put in the Upper Servants flat. It was fine, but hardly a stately home!...

What can I say this has to be one of the best holiday rentals we have ever stayed in, it was not bargain basement but everything was included heating, wi-fi, well appointed nicely furnished a little off the beaten track exactly what we needed peace and quiet. Wonderful walks in the woods and grounds, our dog just adored woodland walks...

We stayed here in November 2016, we were looking for a one-night stop circa St-Andrews. We happened upon this place through one of the comparison websites, it was a similar price to the St Andrews City-Centre places, but seemed more interesting. Cambo House is Unique. We were welcomed by the current owners of this Country House, who told us some...

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....
