Formerly a group of farm buildings, this quirky property with its magnificent tower now offers a wonderful holiday break in the grounds of a family-run fruit farm

This property is a stunningly unusual home situated in the lovely farmlands of Cupar, Fife. A former agricultural building, the tower has been lovingly converted into a sweet holiday home, retaining many inspiring and beautiful original features. A cosy, tranquil space, this unique property will make the ideal East Fife retreat for you and your family.

The property itself is an elegant stone structure with a tower in the centre, featuring a pretty bell roof and weather vane. The interior has been designed to reflect the age of the building with a modern style and warm, country colours, making it an inviting and characterful space to return home to after long days exploring the local region.

Enter to find the social hub of the house, the open-plan kitchen, dining, and living space, a long space decorated in warm tones and with natural wood details. At one end is a delightful window seat below an arched feature window, with cosy sofas placed around a pretty fireplace with an open fire. At the other end of this room is the kitchen and dining area which has a big family table, perfect for those celebratory holiday meals. On the same level are two twin bedrooms, decorated in a charming country style.

Heading up to the tower’s first floor, you’ll find the highlight of the property - the master bedroom, with a luxurious double bed and elegant en-suite with roll-top bath. It's even got a little adjoining room that you can use as a dressing room or baby’s room depending on your needs.

Outside the house you have a spacious, private garden with outdoor furniture. If the weather is on your side, sit and enjoy a late breakfast in the fresh air, with just the sounds of nature to accompany you as you sip a hot coffee and tuck into a hearty breakfast before heading out for the day.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

In the summer months, the farm hosts a Mega Maize Maze, which is quite the tourist attraction, or you could simply indulge in a spot of fruit picking as juicy raspberries and strawberries are in abundance on the farm.

The house is surrounded by a stunning landscape, with interesting places to visit within easy reach. Head north 11 miles to Dundee for shopping, eating, and sightseeing. The city has museums and galleries galore that will give you a true taste of Scottish cultural history, or take a tour of Broughty Castle, a gorgeous 15th-century fort with inspiring views of the estuary.

The university town of St Andrews, with its rich academic and sporting history, is a lovely spot for a day trip and is just 11 miles away. You could even take in a round of golf at one of the magnificent courses that this area is famous for.

Reviewed by Chris 2nd December 2019

Cairnie Tower South is a great property and would easily accommodate 6 people. It is spacious and has good facilities. There is also an endless supply of logs in the winter so that you can be as cosy as you like! Close to Dundee, St. Andrews and all the small fishing ports of the Fife coast, what more could you want?

Reviewed by Christine 12th October 2019

Very comfortable- great location for an extended family get-together. Would recommend this property.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
