The house was spacious and very well appointed. You instantly feel at home and we were very sad to leave. It allowed all of us to have some space but easily accomodated us all for meals and watching dvds in the evening. The kitchen contains all the equipment you will need to cook any meal. There is so much to do in Fife and Perth and Kinross that we struggled to fit in half of what we wanted to do. The immediate village is gorgeous. Falkland Palace is well worth a visit with a lego figurine hunt to keep the kids entertained whilst the adults listened to the very knowledgeable guides who dress in Stewart constume on Saturdays. There is also a lovely walk from the village to Mapsie Den. If you don't fancy cooking there is a great cafe (Campbell's) over the road for breakfast and lunch.
Absolutely stunning location with lots of things to do to keep everybody happy.
Thistle house was welcoming, spacious and had lots of game etc to keep adults and children occupied on a rainy day.
Would definitely stay there again
Thistle House is a wonderfully cosy and well appointed cottage in the heart of this stunning village. A very comfortable 'home from home' with real character.
A peaceful retreat with a Royal Place within 100m and wonderful walks and paths to explore from the village... and on your return, enjoy a night by the fire or dinner in one of the cosy pubs. Falkland is also a great base to explore the Kingdom of Fife; venture to the highlands or explore Edinburgh, Thistle House is the perfect cottage in a fantastic location.
I stayed at the Thistle House for about a week and absolutely loved everything about my visit! I was escaping Edinburgh for some quiet time in the country and that's exactly what I found. Public transit from Edinburgh was super easy, which was a plus! The house is in a great location, right in the center of the village. There's a store down the street for essentials, a cute spot for breakfast across from the house and the sweetest little shop next door for coffee and locally made treasures. Lots of hiking trails nearby too, which I made sure to take advantage of everyday. The house itself is fully equipped and could be perfect for a family or even a solo traveler like myself. I really had such a wonderful time in Falkland and can't wait to return!
We loved staying here and exploring Falkland and the surrounding area. The house was really cosy, our 3 boys were in their element with the games room and pool table. The house was well equipped, clean, homely and in a fantastic situation in the centre of the town. Would definitely stay here again.
