Welcome to Garden Cottage. Garden Cottage is right in the heart of our country estate in Fife, about 9 miles from St Andrews and its many golf courses.

It is set on a private road, which is only used by cottage guests, and the very occasional tractor working on the estate. Inside the cottage has a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and cloakroom with toilet on the ground floor, and upstairs, there is a bathroom with showerbath and power shower, and 2 bedrooms - one with a double bed, the other with 2 twin beds. There is also a full size cot.We can also supply a futon bed, for a small extra charge.

For each booking, we provide a welcome pack which will contain a selection of groceries to get you started, and we will provide a 'goodie bag' for children aged 3-12. you will also find some toys, games and DVDs in the cottage, to keep the children amused. Please make sure you tell us your children's ages when you book.The sitting room is particularly comfortable and cosy, especially when the open fire is burning brightly. It does make such a difference to any room, although even when the fire is not on, the sitting-room has a lovely 'feel' to it. Maybe it is the light from the double aspect windows, or the high ceiling, but it is a very relaxing room, and is a great place to just chill out. There is also a free-sat TV, and docking station, as well as BT Infinity wi-fi, which is free and unlimited. The cottage also has full central heating. The dining room can easily accommodate 4 or even 6 at the table, and there is a piano, for the musically gifted!

The bedrooms are snug and traditional, with sloping eaves, dormer and velux windows in both bedrooms, and beautiful timber beds, deep toppers on each bed, and cosy duvets. Even when the weather is not so nice, there is something very comforting about hearing the rain on the velux, while you are warm as toast in bed. When the weather is good ( and it is good surprisingly often!) it's amazing to the leave the velux blind open, and gaze up at the stars.The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer and microwave.Outside the garden is stocked with flowers. The woodland and nearby stream are often visited by deer, especially in the early morning, and as the kitchen overlooks the woods, you might be lucky enough to see a deer while you make your morning tea.

The garden is great for children to play. It has a Little Tikes Slides, and plenty of room to kick a football, or ride bikes. There are no neighbours close enough to be troubled by boisterous games. In front of the cottage, is an open grassy area, beside our duck pond, which has many wild ducks. In the spring, there are also many ducklings, swimming in line behind their mothers. We are also regularly visited by Harry the Heron, and very occasionally, by otters. In May, we host the Fife Agricultural Show in some of our fields. This is far enough away from the cottage that you will hardly notice it, but if you want to visit, there is lots to see and do, with show jumping, cattle, sheep and horse shows, as well as all sorts of traditional Scottish exhibitions and displays.Near to our house, about 100 yards from the cottage, is our tennis court, and guests are welcome to enjoy it. If you don't have rackets with you, we'll be happy to lend you some.

Further afield, there is so much to see and explore in Fife. The Open Golf comes to St Andrews regularly, and was back again in July 2015. St Andrews itself has much to see, from St Rules Tower, the Castle and the other historic areas. On the Fife Coast, there are the pretty East Neuk villages, such as Anstruther, and Pittenweem, and the Pittenweem Art Festival is not to be missed. Edinburgh is only an hour away by train or car, with the Edinburgh Festival in August,and so many sights and shops to see and visit. With every booking, we are delighted to send you a list of things to do, places to go, and local shops and restaurants to visit. We would be delighted to help with any more information you might need. Just ask!

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Kingdom of Fife is full of history and interesting places. St Andrews, the home of golf, is only 9 miles away. St Andrews is a lovely place to visit. There is an historic castle, beautiful beaches and the world famous University. The East Neuk of Fife is famous for its fishing villages and lovely beaches. Edinburgh is only an hour away, Perth about 40 minutes away, and Dundee is only 15 minutes away over the River Tay. For golfers, Fife has many golf courses. Cupar itself has two, and there are 5 or 6 in St Andrews, before you even start thinking about Carnoustie, Perth, and even Gleneagles.

Cupar

Cupar is the old market town of Fife. There is still a Farmers Market once a month, where local farmers sell their produce. Fife Show is held on our farm in May each year, and is a great spectacle. It is however on the other side of the farm from Garden Cottage, and it is possible to completely ignore it, if you prefer not to participate. There are many historic places to visit, such as Falkland Palace, and other National Trust properties.
