Very Good

“Beautiful place in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2017

The house was beyond our expectations. Absolutely beautiful, had everything we needed. The hot tub was fantastic especially with the nice weather we were lucky to have. Elma was a great host. Would love to come back

“Great house with a bitter aftertaste”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2017

Enjoyed the Easter weekend with another 3 couples at Barnyards. We booked due to location as was near Pratis Farm where we were attending a wedding on the Saturday. Lovely house & great location with a hot tub. Ten days after departure though, still no security deposit returned. Only to find out the owner was holding onto it due to there being a knife missing from the kitchen drawer. £150 for one piece of cutlery that has clearly been misplaced. Deposit has since been returned thankfully but certainly leaves a bitter taste about the nice stay we had there.

“A wonderful property and view”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2014

We have been going on holiday together for ten years now and this is one of the best places we have stayed in. The location was great for sightseeing, walking and golf. The property was lovely. Ver clean and had all of the things you could need. The hot tub was excellent with a lovely view across the Firth of Forth. Everyone had a great time and we are now looking to book for next year. Scotland in the sun is fabolous but Barnyards in the sun is divine. Thanks to Elma who looked after us so well. we will be back :-)

“A quality base from which to explore the Fife coastline”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2013

Modern, comfortable and well appointed property in an elevated position over the Firth of Forth. Loved the hot tub and excellent quad biking facilities. Superb base from which to explore the local towns and villages and also to access some of the local golf courses. With warm weather and sun shining, there is something of a Mediterranean feel to the location. Sitting room dominated by a large screen TV/entertainment system if you like that sort of thing - would come into its own if the the weather keeps you indoors!!

“50th Birthday weekend”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2013

This was our second stay at Barnyards this year (2013) and once again we were not disappointed. The quality of the accommodation for the price is outstanding and the view from the hotub just cannot be beaten, yes even in freezing weather the tub is enjoyable. If you get fed up with self-catering we can recommend the Upper Largo Hotel for good value eating.

“Fabulous location and views”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2013

We travelled to Barnyards with friends to do some cycling, we were blessed with excellent weather which helped. Barnyards is an excellent location to base yourself for the whole of Fife. The cottage is very comfortable and the hot tub after a hard day in the saddle was very welcome. Easy walk to the village where there is good food available

“golden days!”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2012

Wonderful location and property. Family celebration for golden wedding in this wonderfully well equipped and modern house. We were blessed with glorious autumn weather for our family get together. Aged from 86 to 9 yrs plenty for all to see and do. great to have wet room for less abled and games for younger guests. It was bliss sitting in hot tub in sunshine in october. We had a lovely meal in Upper largo hotel, with good food, plentiful and attentive staff. Even manged Largo law on sunday morning, my father beat me to top! Will definately recommend to family and friends. tank you elma and Bill.

“Absolutely Brilliant Cottage , with top class facilities”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2012

We have just returned from a wounderful seven days at "Barnyards" with family, enjoying New Years Eve and the start of 2012 . Absolutely Brilliant Cottage with great views across the beach and Firth of Forth . Highlight of this visit sitting in the hot tup at midnight on New Years Eve, glass of wine and watching the fireworks across the river over Edinburgh, Brill ! First glass accommodation, fitted out to a high standard, well worth a return visit in the summer to take advantage of the spacious terrace and the superb views.

“Great quality house, comfort with a degree of luxury”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2011

Lovely property,open bright and modern. Outside was well set out and while not ideal for children, our Grandson was young enough to be accompanied at all times. The views from the patio are superb. From the hot tub on a sunny day the view over the water is fabulous. Location great, Very private, while in close proximity to other property it is set out in such a way that it is not overlooked. A car is a must as it is a bit out of town. Plenty parking. Plenty to keep occupied. Have re-booked.

“Luxury in the middle of a working farm”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2011

The house is spacious and has everything needed. Plenty of hot water and the furnishing and fittings is of a high standard. Our 9 year old enjoyed wandering around the farm and seeing the livestock. I also took my 17 year old nephew quad biking (proper stuff - not for the faint hearted!) and clay shooting on the farm. The outdoor hot tub is a treat, but we did feel guilty watching the farmer coming past in his tractor, working away while we sat drinking wine! Highly recommended.
