I was visiting a friend in Cupar and was looking for somewhere, nearby, where I could stay for the weekend. Redlands was flagged up through my Ecosia search and the actual accommodation matched up to the pictures and details on the website.
I stayed in the Wee Bothie and it was great to be able to have direct access to your accommodation and my own kitchen, bathroom and living area. I particularly enjoyed having a small deck where I could sit and enjoy the sunshine however if you are not a horse-lover then you might want to think twice as the owners' horse, in the field behind the Bothie, is very friendly and likes to pop her head over the fence to say hello; given the size of the deck it is very hard to avoid her!
Kate and her husband, the owners, were very friendly and welcoming but did not intrude and were knowledgeable about the local area.
I have no complaints about the accommodation. There are a few minor issues but none that were insurrmountable or affected my pleasure in the accommodation: no socket near the bedroom mirror to dry your hair but you can always use the portable mirror in the bathroom, the signal on the television affects the ability to view some channels but this is to be expected for the area and would only impair your enjoyment if you were relying on the TV for entertainment and the kitchen would have benefitted from a cloth for wiping up and/or kitchen roll but you could always bring them, buy them or ask Kate and I'm sure she would be happy to oblige.
I chose to have my breakfast in my room so cannot comment on the conservatory but the breakfast tray I was given had enough items and variety for a family, never mind one person!
Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Redlands and would absolutely return.
