The space

This mid terraced home dates back to 1600, with 'The Old Maltings' being converted in 1997. The Old Maltings was once the private distillery to Falkland Palace, just a mile away.... we're central to world famous golf courses and an energetic arts scene, where the artists open their studio to visitors.

Spacious and contemporary, the property forms part of a small courtyard development and enjoys great views over the countryside and the Lomond Hills. The property is on 3 levels, with utility room on the ground floor; kitchen, dining/living room, single bedroom and WC on the first floor, and 3 double bedrooms and family bathroom on the top floor.

See 'Old Maltings' Com for more information on what's to do in the area!

The master bedroom, the LimeTree, has a very comfy heated waterbed and en-suite bathroom with power shower. The LemonTwist is a very comfortable and bright double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and views onto the countryside. LavenderMist is a double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and views of the courtyard and Lomond Hills. There's a single 4th bedroom on the 1st floor, and with the daybed (with thick memory foam toppers) opened up into a double bed, it can comfortably accommodate 2 people. All have shared access to the large family bathroom with 'Jacuzi' bath and WC on the 1st floor.

Make yourself at home in the large dining kitchen - breakfast is lovely at the counter in the early hours looking onto the courtyard!

For evening entertainment, there's the large dining table and lounge, complete with large flat screen surround sound TV and piano, if you feel so inclined...

You can help yourself to the juicer (great for pressing apple ginger juice, then mulling afterwards...), blender (for smoothies) and waffle maker and cafetiere.

This is a wonderful location for the Open, particularly for those distinguished guests who may want privacy during the Open.

This is the home of a professional glass artist, with work held in the US and UK. My studio workshop space occupies a room and garage on the ground floor. Guests are more than welcome to learn about the process and discuss commissioning glass pieces at a discounted rate.

ABOUT THE LOCAL AREA

Newton of Falkland is a charming rural hamlet located 1 mile from Falkland. Falkland, is a beautiful historic town with extensive grounds. Sites to see include:

Falkland Palace and grounds. There are lovely long walks on the estate which include forest, streams and a climb to the top of Lomond Hills for great views of Fife and beyond.

Cycling on the estate or around Loch Leven.

Very unique gift shops, inc. the Cottage Craft Centre, Fayre Earth and the National Trust.

Beautiful walk and dinner at the Balbirnie House and estate, a delightful 18th century Georgian mansion nestled amidst 400 acres of rolling parkland in the heart of Fife. Alternatively, quiet drink at the Wine Bar in Falkland or good pub grub at one of the oldest pubs in Scotland, the Stagg Inn, where you can still get beer made with 1850s recipes.

THINGS TO DO NEARBY

St Andrews, Gleneagles, Perth and Dundee are approx 30 mins.

Edinburgh Airport is within 1hr drive and railway station in nearby Ladybank.

Stunning seaside views in St Andrews. Visit the Pier and West Sands, where the opening scene of Chariotts of Fire was filmed. Enjoy medieval architecture and bespoke shops. Great selection of fresh Scottish fish, Thai, Japanese and Italian restaurants.

For walkers, there's a healthy mix of coastline walks and hills in either direction including: coastal walk from Crail to Elie, taking in the unique character of historic fishing villages Pittenweem, Anstruther, St Monans and Cellardyke.

Expensive, but exquisite dinner at the Cellar, Anstruther. Frequented by HOLLYWOOD STARS during the golf season, inc. Samuel Jackson and Tom Hanks.

Munro bagging in Pitlochry and Blair Atholl. Don't miss homemade food at a working Water Mill in Blair Atholl, or excellent fish platter at the House of Bruar, the Harrods of Scotland.

FOR GOLFERS, THERE IS:

The Old Course, St Andrews, purported being the home of golf, and where the Open and Dunn Hill Cup are held.

Pitreavie (Dunfermline) Golf Club, Fife, Scotland (1922): A tremendous parkland course and tricky test with many key MacKenzie trademarks throughout. A short drive from the world famous St. Andrews.

The Portland Course at the Royal Troon Golf Club, in Troon, Scotland. A worthy and challenging companion to the Old Course, the many-times Open Championship site.

Leven and Ladybank are used for "Open Championship" qualifying rounds when the Open is at St. Andrews.

Fantastic stay in Newton on Falkland. Charonne was very welcoming and helpful. Enjoyed walking over to Falkland and enjoying the view. Highly recommend for a quiet get-away in Scotland.

Great house in a peaceful complex with friendly neighbours. Very flexible accommodation ideal for a wide range of groups and families. Great showers. Lovely electric piano if you're a player. Lomond Hills provide great walks and the best views in the area. Local pubs aren't great sadly and certainly not the ones within walking distance. Great food can be had in St. Andrews though and around the Loch.

This has got to be one of best experiences I have had with Airbnb! Our host Charonne was absolutely fabulous! From check in to check out it was faultless. The place was truly wonderful as was the area, as was Charonne! Easy to get to places, easy to find, beautiful location and a wonderful property. And the best bit for us...we are big OUTLANDER fans...and we got to see where it was filmed and talk to some of those who were involved in the filming!!! The Best!! Thanks Charonne xx

For comfort, mod cons and a picturesque location, you can't go wrong with this property. The home is very clean, comfortable and really well equipped. The kitchen has all you could possibly need (and more) for self-catering and we made good use of it. The living/dining area is really spacious and comfortable, with a large table and comfy seats for enjoying leisurely meals. The master bedroom is a good size and we found the waterbed comfortable. There is a really good power shower in the en suite. The other (two) double bedrooms are great too, though one has a lower bed so those with reduced mobility/bad backs may wish to select one of the others. In a similar vein, it's worth noting that the bedrooms are up two flights of stairs from the entrance to the property. Those with allergies need to be aware that Charonne's cat, Mocha, lives in the property but she's very independent and even a dog lover like me found her pretty sweet! The home is located within walking distance of the picturesque village of Falkland and offers lovely views of the surrounding countryside. As a host, Charonne was really prompt and helpful, and the six of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Hello....I've lived in many places, especially love Scotland, where I regularly hill walk in the calm, bold beauty of the Scottish Highlands. Like many of us here, I enjoy travelling! Especially like meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I hope through Airbnb to see more of the world..
