We had a fantastic reunio n at Toftcombs. The property is very special - elegance combined with comfort and homeliness. Everything was there that we needed, and the owners couldnt have been more helpful or responsive to our queries.
We would strongly recommend this proprty for the combination of comfort, grandeur, location and value for money.
I stayed here in November 1988, as a friend and I were traveling through England and Scotland by car. We just happened upon the Toftcombs House in the early evening. It appeared to be closed, but we knocked on the door and an elderly man with white hair opened it and welcomed us in. It was a wonderful stay. I particularly remember a sumptuous dinner of carved meats, with a local Scottish clan sitting at a large table nearby. Alas, I have not made it back, but I hope to one day.
Fantastic property, would definitely use again. Owner extremely helpful advising us about local butchers etc that deliver to the house.
The House was incredible - 11 Jun 2007"The house was incredible and everyone there really loved lounging around in the various rooms and playing snooker (in which I won 3 out of 3 and I hadn't played for about 10 years so I was particularly happy). Everything was immaculately clean and there was plenty of room for everyone the Master suite that my brother had was incredible."Other Recent Comments"And that brings me to Isaac. ( THE BUTLER ) who really did help make the weekend, his manners were impeccable and the service we got from him from the moment we arrived until we left was absolutely spot on. I have never been force fed so much bacon, eggs, blackpudding, haggis, beans and it goes on, in my life. We went to bed fairly late with Isaac still serving us drinks, and woke up to a clean house and the smell of breakfast and coffee. He was always suitably dressed, with a smile on his face and helped out with anything we needed, a thoroughly nice chap and great at his job." "The caterers were excellent and produced very good food with us barely noticing they had even arrived."Measures Party Comments"The house completely exceeded our expectations in terms of both size (inside and out) and the quality of the decor and furnishings. Our jaws dropped when we stepped into the kitchen and then into each room. And what views! The gallery, the floors - amazing. The pictures on the internet just don't do the inside justice. We were also very taken with how the house felt like a home. You've taken such care to keep it looking like a home, with all your amazing pictures and niknaks and beautiful cushions, nice towels and toiletries and having Sky and a DVD was great too. 'Homely' is something we have rarely found in a rental property - and we have been to loads over the years. Thank you so much for the work that has gone into it. It was quite expensive compared to other places we have rented but I can see why!" "Also it was great for the dogs!!!" "All in all a wonderful house, wonderful location, wonderful holiday."
A fantastic week at a fantastic house. Beautiful views and we had a great family re-union. Thanks to Sara for making us feel so welcome.
