We are a family owned small business and have won FlipKey/TripAdvisors 'Top Vaction Rental in the St Andrews Area 3 years running.... Why? Because we are small and we care! Nestled in the heart of the Kingdom of Fife, in the hamlet of Chance Inn, Bag End Cottage offers luxury self catering holiday cottage accommodation in the main part of our contemporary timber-clad home. We are set in an idyllic rural setting and the accommodation is for up to seven people in stylish comfort, plus space for a cot if required. It is most often described by guests as a real home from home. Being centrally located in the Kingdom of Fife we are very close to Cupar, just nine miles from St Andrews, and just a short drive from Dundee, Edinburgh, Perth and the East Neuk of Fife, including Anstruther, Cellard...We are a family owned small business and have won FlipKey/TripAdvisors 'Top Vaction Rental in the St Andrews Area 3 years running....

Built by myself, Bag End Cottage has a contemporary but very homely feel. Fitted with a hand crafted cherry-wood staircase, heated Italian porcelain floors and dressed with Vintage 20th Century ceramics, glass and art from my private collection, Bag End Cottage is a truly lovely place to stay. Set in gardens with an outdoor dining area, a giant chess board and wonderful open views of the Fife countryside, Bag End Cottage is a must try experience. More

About the neighborhood
Bag End Cottage is located in the heart of the Kingdom of Fife, in the tiny rural hamlet of Chance Inn. Fife is an ancient Royal burgh and is stuffed with castles, golf courses, beaches, adventurous activities and even the odd Palace! We are surrounded by rolling countryside being close to St Andrews we are in the middle of a golfers paradise. Fife is famous for its top quality food, so eating places abound from the local Cafe to Michelin Star restaurants. It is just 30 mins drive to Dundee and the fabulous new V&A musem. We are near to Cupar, just nine miles from St Andrews, and just a short drive to Edinburgh, Perth and the East Neuk of Fife, including Anstruther, Cellardyke, Crail, Elie, Pittenweem and St Monans.
Getting around
Being rural, it is recommended that guests have their own vehicle to get out and about. There is a local bus and rail service and trips to Edinburgh are often great when taken by train over Isambard Kingdom Brunel's famous railway Bridge on the river Forth.
