Furnished to a beautiful standard befitting of such a grand country house, Dunfallandy House is rented by guests from throughout the UK and overseas for special occasions and house parties throughout the year. Due to the flexible layout of the property, the house is in the unique position that it can also easily offer more traditional B&B service to guests. While typically the house is let to one group at any given time, the house does allow for owners to operate as a B&B at various stages throughout the season. Unlike other self- catering houses in the area the vendors are very flexible and offer long weekends, leaving them free to offer B&B mid-week.
