Falkland Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

House in Falkland, Cupar, Fife, Scotland - Quiet And Beautiful Location 10 Minutes Walk From The Village Of Falkland

A stunning country house built in 1806, this former manse, and until her death, home to Frances Shand Kydd, mother of Diana, Princess of Wales. It is a magnificent Georgian building, beautifully modernised while retaining old-world charm. 6 comfortable bedrooms with 5 bathrooms, there is space for 12 adults, and 2 children. With a drawing room with open fire and dual aspect, a tv room with 40" tv and freeview and dvds, a spacious dining/kitchen with AGA, a bright and airy dining conservatory and a formal dining room to seat 12, there is ample space for families. Centrally heated, open-fire, and AGA, together with electric blankets on all beds ensure a warm stay, whatever the weather. The house sits in an acre of walled garden, and surrounded by hundreds of acres of grazing land. Within 30 minutes of over 50 golf-courses, including Gleneagles and St Andrews, we are well-located for golfers. Edinburgh, Perth, St Andrews and Dundee are all within 40 minutes, and trains run to Markinch, 10 minutes away.

About duncan heaton-armstrong

Having retired as a tax consultant and stockbroker in 1995 I have since been involved in property letting and running a b&b. I love interaction with guests, and have over the past 19 years enjoyed my guests. I have 4 kids, 2 at University and 2 at school, and enjoy lots of time with my family and the pets.

duncan heaton-armstrong purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

Why duncan heaton-armstrong chose Fife

We chose a beautiful location with a stunning house, close to amenities but quiet and peaceful. A great place to bring up children and plenty of walks and beaches nearby

What makes this chateau / country house unique

10 minutes walk from the village, and only 40 minutes to Edinburgh, and close to St Andrews, Perth and Dundee, and with stunning views and a great climate, Ladywell is the perfect balance of a rural location but not remote from anywhere.
