Cambo House


Cambo House, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 8QD

    A Family Home There is a unique quality about Cambo, home of the Erskine family since 1688, that entices guests back year after year.

    The family welcome you to enjoy the comfort and spaciousness of their home, absorb the beauty of the gardens and woodland walks and unwind in the informal, restful atmosphere that makes Cambo so special.

    Cambo House, an impressive Victorian country house, built in 1881, lies at the heart of a 1200 acre country estate and a stone's throw from the sea.

    Whether you seek a peaceful retreat or an active break, Cambo has so much to offer that you can create the perfect holiday without leaving the estate. Cambo House offers living in grand style, but with modern day comforts. The accommodation in the house has been transformed over the years to its present comfortable state, with many of its original features retained as reminders of the past.
