Lovely C Listed Ladieburn Cottage enjoys a delightful central position in the sought after and historic village of Falkland, directly opposite Falkland Palace which was once used by Mary Queen of Scots as a hunting lodge. The towns of Cupar and Glenrothes provide excellent day to day amenities including supermarkets, medical centres, schools, swimming pools, leisure centres and such like. There are excellent independent schools in the area including the High School of Dundee and St Leonards in St Andrews.

Falkland offers immediate access to the Lomond Hills and Falkland Estate which between them offer great scope for walking, cycling and other county pursuits. Loch Leven is also nearby. Perth, Dundee, St Andrews and Edinburgh are readily accessible from the village and there are mainline railway stations at Ladybank and Markinch.



Believed to date from circa 1850, and formerly forming part of the Temperance Hotel, Ladieburn Cottage is an outstanding property which has been extensively refurbished and improved by the current owners to offer wonderful, deceptively spacious family accommodation of a high standard with a lovely contemporary feel. The magnificent sitting room offers excellent living space and is centred around a wonderful feature fireplace with stove. Off the sitting room is the good-sized dining room which then leads on to the fabulous kitchen / family room with stove and large picture window to the colourful garden. The family bathroom, utility and hall complete the accommodation at this level. At first floor level there are two excellent well-proportioned bedrooms one with en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe. Completing the accommodation are two good further bedrooms at second floor level, with one benefiting from an en-suite bathroom.


Charming throughout and offering fantastic comfortable modern family living space Ladieburn is a gem and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.   



The delightful enclosed rear garden is an absolute oasis, well stocked with plants and flowers and a generous neat lawn.

There is a timber shed and a potting shed.
