Holiday Rental House
Leave the hustle and bustle of modern living behind as you pack and embark on a unique adventure into historical old Scotland. Ross House is a beautiful 17th century stone built cottage occupying a prime position in one of Scotland's most perfectly preserved ancient towns with a fairy tale Royal Palace only steps away. Following an extensive refurbishment programme, the cottage offers the very best in comfortable, luxury accommodation whilst remaining faithful to the original style and feel of the building. Despite being centrally located, the cottage itself is extremely quiet thanks to the thick stone walls and secondary glazing to the front bedrooms. The beautiful hand-turned oak kitchen boasts underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. The Britannia double oven with six gas burner...Leave the hustle and bustle of modern living behind as you pack and embark on a unique adventure into historical old Scotland. Ross House is a beautiful 17th century stone built cottage occupying a prime position in one of Scotland's most perfectly preserved ancient towns with a fairy tale Royal Palace only steps away. Following an extensive refurbishment programme, the cottage offers the very best in comfortable, luxury accommodation whilst remaining faithful to the original style and feel of the building. Despite being centrally located, the cottage itself is extremely quiet thanks to the thick stone walls and secondary glazing to the front bedrooms. The beautiful hand-turned oak kitchen boasts underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. The Britannia double oven with six gas burners gives ample scope for even the most exacting cooks and a centre table with soft leather chairs provides a cosy dining area in front of the fireplace. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both with feature fireplaces and a living room with open fire. The spacious master bedroom is en-suite with bath and shower. Farrow and Ball wall coverings, beautiful art work and bespoke furnishings guarantee the ultimate in rest and relaxation. A further bedroom and a dining room, each with feature fireplaces, comprise the lower front portion of the house. Both rooms are decorated in styles in keeping with the original era of the property. The two bathrooms have been completed to the very highest specification with a Villeroy & Boch whisper-quiet Whirlpool bath and Fired Earth Rain Shower. The back garden is a peaceful south-facing sun-trap with three seating areas, dining terrace and a barbecue. It is totally enclosed, very private, safe and quiet. We are very fortunate in Falkland to have so many handy service providers right on our doorstep. Across the road from the cottage is a fascinating music and antiquity lovers' paradise specialising in antique violins and a street away there is a well stocked pharmacy for life's more practical requirements. A short stroll takes you to a bank, a top class bakers and greengrocers, a hairdressers and a post office with a general store. Three boutique shops carry a variety of tasteful take-home gifts. The aptly named Covenanter Hotel with its excellent restaurant, is a great place to dine without needing to venture more than a few yards from the cottage. The Bruce pub offers draft ale and hearty meals as does The Lomond Tavern, a popular eatery for locals and visitors. The Stag Inn on the far side of the village green offers live performances with a regional emphasis. A skip and a jump from the cottage, Campbell's bistro offers excellent freshly ground coffee all'italiana, great breakfasts, lunches and dinners in a relaxing environment; ingredients are top-quality and you can bring your own wine. A twenty minute walk through woodland paths takes you to a lovely organic farm shop and café where you can stock up on grocery essentials and sample delicious homemade cakes and soups either inside the cosy café building or 'al fresco' in the extensive farm gardens. The cottage has super-fast fibre-optic broadband. For further details please visit world wide web ross house falkland dot comMore

About the neighbourhood
Falkland first became a seat to Scotland's monarchy as long ago as 1437 when it was ceded to the Stewart Kings by the once powerful Macduff clan. A violent beginning with tales of treachery, starvation and torture gave way to a gentler, more peaceful age as the palace's royal incumbents sought pleasure in hunting and games of tennis. Mary Queen of Scots, the great niece of Henry VIII, wiled away many happy days at Falkland before her struggle to become England's as well as Scotland's supreme regent and her eventual demise at the hands of Elizabeth I.
