Wonderful and spacious period detached house with large mature garden and countryside views, nestled in a beautiful rural position on a working farm close to Cupar and St. Andrews.

An excellent base for exploring the Kingdom of Fife, this wonderful country house sleeps 15 guests and four dogs across seven bedrooms, perfect for a large family or group of friends. Period features blend with contemporary touches creating character in abundance, and the living room and snug let teens and adults both grab a moment of peace and solitude after a busy day together. With beautiful views, walks from the door, and St Andrews and all its amenities close by, there is something for everyone.

 

An array of beautiful period features, ornate cornicing and high ceilings give this property a real sense of grandeur and style. Contemporary styling blended with the traditional elements creates an authentic charm within this home from home, which is both welcoming and extremely comfortable.

 

Through the spacious hallway, find the elegant and bright kitchen, where double doors to the outside let light and fresh air pour in. If you return muddy and mucky after a day out, the handy utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and space for hanging damp clothes. Guests can choose between the social kitchen space for meals or the fantastic formal dining room, where wooden floors complement striped walls. In the spacious, light and bright lounge a mix of antique and contemporary furnishings create a stylish yet comfortable feel, perfect for relaxing on the sofa with a movie, and on chilly evenings head to the snug where the roaring wood burner is ideal for cosy nights in.

 

Upstairs, the five bedrooms are beautifully decorated and retain the same character, traditional with a contemporary twist. Lovely linens, pretty textiles, bright feature walls and large windows make a welcoming refuge at the end of your day. Two super-king-size bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, and all four super-king-size beds can be made into twins, hosting a variety of party make-ups. The bunk bedroom and single bedroom are on the ground floor as is a stylish shower room.

 

Outside, the property is surrounded by rolling fields and beautiful countryside views. Children and pups will love the large, lawned garden dotted with trees perfect for hours of hide-and-seek and fetch. Amongst the mature gardens, there is a seating area perfect for al fresco dining. In the morning, wake with a stroll listening to the birdsong, coffee in hand and pup at your heels. In the evening, fire up the gas BBQ and settle down with a wee dram, good local beer or a nice glass of wine to enjoy some stargazing.

We stayed for the weekend as part of 50th birthday celebrations. We had a fantastic time. Susan was easy to get in touch with and we had fantastic instructions. We hired the hot tub separately and did the cocktail making. Everything was fantastic. The fridge and cupboards were stocked with essentials some we had forgotten.

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.
