The Doocot - An Idyllic Oasis Of Charm and Comfort near St Andrews, overlooking the Charleton Golf Course and within easy striking distance of the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles..

A stunning one bedroom annexed cottage located in the idyllic hamlet of Charleton which boasts both a Golf Club and Equestrian Centre.

The property sits in truly enchanting gardens and is an oasis of charm enhanced by the sound of the babbling brook and resident songbirds. Views extend over these gardens, across the Charleton golf course and over the Firth of Forth to Berwick Law.

The accommodation is as restful as the location with comfortable open plan living and spacious bedroom facilities. Picture windows offer unrestricted views as an alternative to watching internet enabled smart TV from the electrically controlled reclining sofa. Free wifi is also available.

Outside, guests can enjoy the expansive grounds and water features of the main property as well as their own private garden and barbecue area. Alternatively they can stroll up to the stables or to the Golf Club where non members are always welcome.

The East Neuk (corner) of Fife is an area full of fantastic attractions, events, festivals, outdoor activities and breath taking beaches. Quaint and picture perfect this area is renowned for its charming fishing villages and harbours such as Crail, Anstruther and Pittenweem.

Fishing has been a staple in the life of the East Neuk villages for generations and if you're up early enough, you can witness the bustle of the harbours in the morning as the boats land their daily catch of prawns, lobsters and crabs of the highest quality. Alternatively you can enjoy the very same seafood in some of the very best restaurants Scotland has to offer.

Explore the fascinating culture and history of the East Neuk along with its historic castles (some reputably haunted) where you can enjoy fine interiors and enchanting walled gardens with woodland and meadow walks. Alternatively grab some exercise with a range of first rate outdoor activities to suit all ages. Take a walk along the Fife Coastal Path to admire the beautiful coastline. You can uncover some prime diving sites in the Firth of Forth, set sail to the rugged Isle of May or try out activities such as archery, abseiling and kayaking.

But above all else you can enjoy a round of golf on some of the very best courses including the home of golf at the Old Course St Andrews a mere 25 minutes drive. No need to start the engine though - a leisurely stroll will take you to Charlton Golf Club, The Doocot overlooks the course!
