Description

Welcome to Garden Cottage. The cottage is right in the heart of our country estate in Fife, about 9 miles from St Andrews and its many golf courses. The Estate comprises about 200 acres of arable land, and although close to Cupar and St Andrews, it is a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil place.

The cottage is stone built, and set in its own garden, with a lawn to the front, grass to the back, with woodlands at the side. It is sits on a private road, which is only used by cottage guests, and the very occasional tractor working on the estate. It is probably about 2 hundred years old, and has lots of character and traditional charm.

Downstairs the cottage has a spacious sitting room, with an open fire, flat screen TV, with free-sat channels, a DVD player and a selection of books, DVDs and games. We supply a starter pack of coal, and unlimited logs for the fire, so that you can enjoy the pleasure of a real fire. There is also a full dining room, well equipped kitchen with hob,

We supply a starter pack of coal, and unlimited logs for the fire, so that you can enjoy the pleasure of a real fire. There is also a full dining room, well equipped kitchen with hob, oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, as well as a separate larder. There is also a downstairs toilet with basin.

The cottage has central heating, and free wi-fi throughout.

Upstairs, there is a bathroom which has a lovely showerbath, with fixed screen and power shower, toilet and basin, as well as 2 bedrooms - one with a double bed, the other with 2 twin beds. The beds are handmade by a local craftsman, from our own timber, and are made up with comfy toppers and cosy duvets. There is also a full size cot, and we are happy to supply bed linen and towels for your baby.

Outside the garden is stocked with flowers and herbs. The woodland and adjacent 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. In front of the cottage, in an open grassy area, is our duck pond, which has many wild ducks. In the spring, there are many ducklings, swimming in line behind their mothers. We are 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 year is is held on Saturday 20th May. It is far enough away from the cottage that you will hardly notice it, but if you want to visit, there are lots of things to see and do, with show jumping, cattle, sheep and horse shows, as well as all sorts of traditional Scottish exhibitions and displays.

On the Estate, about 100 yards from the cottage, is our tennis court, and guests are welcome to use it by arrangement. If you don't have room in your luggage to bring rackets, just let us know, and we'll provide some.

Further afield, there is so much to see and explore in Fife. The Open Golf comes to St Andrews regularly, and is next here in July 2021, and in 2018 it comes to Carnoustie, which is roughly an hour from the cottage. And of course, it would be wrong not to mention the many and varied golf courses in the area. It wouldn’t be difficult to spend a couple of weeks, choosing a different course each day.

The cottage is about 9 miles from St Andrews, and so is perfect for golfers, or for visitors to the University. 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. The beach and forest at Tentsmuir is well worth a visit. Even in high summer the long white beaches are clean and quiet, and seals can often be seen basking in the sun ( the sun does actually shine quite a lot in Scotland - contrary to common belief!!).

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.

Fife is in fact just the prefect place from which to explore all that the East of Scotland has to offer.

Regrettably no dogs.

It really is our pleasure to welcome you to Garden Cottage, and we will do our best to make your stay in Fife a happy memorable one. We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
