A truly excellent holiday rental in a quiet location that provides easy access to stunning countryside. The house itself is clean, comfortable and it's clear that the owners have paid attention to detail in terms of amenities: furnishings and equipment were all of high quality. The swimming pool is well maintained and a real treat to use after a day of exploring in Fife, which has a lot to offer in terms of local interest. It is definitely one of the best rentals I have stayed in and works as a year round getaway: we stayed while the sun shined, but with its lovely open fire, I imagine it would be equally attractive in winter. The owners were helpful and welcoming; they live nearby, but were unobtrusive throughout our stay. These cottages provide all you could ask for whether you are looking for total relaxation or access to outdoor activities like walking and cycling.

An amazing weekend had by all. Stunning location, high standard accommodation and great amenities. The swimming pool, jacuzzi, games room and gym kept us all thoroughly entertained. Owners Ian & Kate are very friendly and welcoming. So much so that we have already booked our next stay! Superb.

“Idyllic getaway in beautiful location”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

I was part of a group of 9 who booked both cottages for a long weekend during March 2012. The group was a mixture of couples and friends.

Both the living room and dining area in the larger cottage could accommodate the full group comfortably.

We spent the weekend walking in the hills beside the cottage, playing games in the games room and relaxing in the pool and hot tub.

It was in a great location surrounded by beautiful hills and the only building nearby was the owner's own house.

The cottage itself was well presented, clean and had everything we could have asked for. The bedrooms were of a good size and were also very comfortable.

We were initially concerned that the owner's own house would be too close and that we would not have privacy but it was absolutely fine. The owner's house was far enough away that we didn't need to worry about noise and it didn't overlook us all.

We had a wonderful weekend and were even blessed with lovely weather. Can't wait to go back!
