Property description

The foundations were set down in the 16th century, the underfloor heating in 2012. The restoration began in the 1880s and didn’t stop until the house featured every modern convenience with unprecedented levels of comfort.

Built for one of Fife’s most prominent families – the Wardlaws, who had been members of King Malcolm’s court in the 12th century and had played a key role in establishing St Andrew’s University in the 15th century. Balmule House was passed through the generations before being sold on as the Wardlaws’ fortunes faded.

Today’s owner, has brought the house into the 21st century, with a programme of renovation work that brings out original features in their former glory – against a backdrop of modern technology, high-quality finish and absolute comfort.

From the original tower house, extra wings have been added and the defensive measures phased out. Many rooms have changed in function and in form, while outbuildings have been added, gardens constructed and old features reconditioned.

Exclusive Use - from 3,500 pound per day
Walk around Balmule and you’ll see the history. You’ll feel the comfort. You’ll discover the quality. And you’ll hear the peace and tranquillity.

With grounds that stretch for 30 acres, there is plenty of space to explore and enjoy. You can follow the trails to the woodlands, or fish the stream, without ever leaving the estate. For a gentler stroll, the Walled Garden offers paved terraces, linking the flower-beds and greenhouses, with an abundance of space for enjoying the best of Scottish weather.

There are hundreds of years of history within its walls, yet this is not a visitor attraction. It’s a home for you to enjoy for one evening or longer. Balmule House is available on an exclusive hire basis, with the house, grounds and facilities yours alone for the duration of your stay.
Prices start from £3,500 per day

    While we’re more than happy to tell you our story, Home Lettings Scotland is really all about our clients; both tenants and landlords. The company was created to deliver customer service and value that makes us stand out from a very overcrowded lettings market. When we started out, we chose not to rely on the legacy of working models passed down from other old school letting agencies. Instead, we listened to our clients who wanted good honest customer services without paying through the nose for it – therefore we’ll return your calls, keep our promises and (hopefully) exceed your expectation time and time again. In order to deliver this, we’ve gone out of our way to build a team who have worked in property for years and therefore understand the market and what tenants and landlords need. Home Lettings Scotland was built by property people: 90% of our team have previously worked in property from as agents, marketers, interior designers, home-stagers and skilled tradesmen so we can offer practical advice – whatever your requirements are!
