Garden Cottage is right  in the heart of our country estate in Fife, about 9 miles from St Andrews and its many golf courses, and we look forward to welcoming guests to our pretty cosy cottage. The cottage is detached, two storey, and set in its own garden, with a lawn to the front, and grass to the back, with woodlands at the side. It is sits on a private road, which is only used by cottage guests, and the very occasional tractor working on the estate. It is a peaceful place, with lots of traditional charm.

Inside the cottage has a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and cloakroom with toilet on the ground floor, and upstairs, there is a bathroom which has a lovely showerbath, with fixed screen and power shower, toilet and basin, as well as 2 bedrooms - one with a double bed, the other with 2 twin beds. The beds are handmade by a local craftsman, from our own timber, and are made up with comfy toppers and cosy duvets. There is also a full size cot, and we are happy to supply bed linen and towels for your baby.

The sitting room is comfortable and well equipped, with an open fire for the chillier times of year, or even just for the fun of having a crackling log fire burning in the evening. The sitting room has 2 big sofas, lots of cushions, and free-sat television. There is also a DVD player and ipod docking station with radio.

The cottage has full central heating, and heating is included at certain times of year. Please ask for details. The dining room can easily accommodate 4 or even 6 at the table.

The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric cooker with oven and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer and microwave.

Outside the garden is stocked with flowers and herbs. The woodland and adjacent stream are often visited by deer, especially in the early morning, and as the kitchen overlooks the woods, you might be lucky enough to see a deer while you make your morning tea. In front of the cottage, in an open grassy area, is our duck pond, which has many wild ducks. In the spring, there are  many ducklings, swimming in line behind their mothers. We are regularly visited by Harry the Heron, and very occasionally, by otters. In May, we host the Fife Agricultural Show in some of our fields. This is far enough away from the cottage that you will hardly notice it, but if you want to visit, there is lots to see and do, with show jumping, cattle, sheep and horse shows, as well as all sorts of traditional Scottish exhibitions and displays. On the Estate, about 100 yards from the cottage, is our  tennis court, and guests are welcome to use it by arrangement. If you don't have room in your luggage to bring rackets, just let us know, and we'll provide some.

Further afield, there is so much to see and explore in Fife. The Open Golf comes to St Andrews regularly, and in 2018 it comes to Carnoustie, which is roughly an hour from the cottage. St Andrews itself has much to see, from St Rules Tower, the Castle and the other historic areas. On the Fife Coast, there are the pretty East Neuk villages, such as Anstruther, and Pittenweem, and the Pittenweem Art Festival is not to be missed. The beach and forest at Tentsmuir is well worth a visit. Even in high summer the long white beaches are clean and quiet, and seals can often be seen basking in the sun ( the sun does actually shine quite a lot in Scotland - contrary to common belief!!). Edinburgh is only an hour away by train or car, with the Edinburgh Festival in August,and so many sights and shops to see and visit.

The cottage has free unlimited BT Infinity wi-fi internet for guests to use. It is about 9 miles from St Andrews, and so is perfect for golfers, or for visitors to the University.

It really is our pleasure to welcome you to Garden Cottage, and we will do our best to make your stay in Fife a happy memorable one. We look forward to hearing from you!

    Garden Cottage reviews
    Garden Cottage is a great place which gives you perfect peace and quiet while being close enough to basically anywhere in the East Neuk. Also, Margo is a wonderful host and we can’t wait to be back.
    Mr And Mrs Caeners - August 2018
    Very peacful break again at this cracking "cottage". Great central location to explore North Fife and the coast. Only complaint was the break past too quickly.
    Mr Docherty - August 2014
    The Garden Cottage was a perfect escape for the Christmas holidays. Quiet and removed from the town of Cupar, the scenery was quintessentially Scottish and a lovely alternative to staying in a hotel or somewhere in town. Comfortable and cozy with a working fireplace in the parlor and beautiful grounds to explore, the cottage makes for a great holiday letting. Additionally, a visit to Gino's restaurant in Cupar is a must for a fabulous Italian meal. The cottage's owners are wonderfully helpful and even left Christmas mince pies and a bottle of wine.
    Mrs Pratt - December 2012
    Stayed for 1 week in this fantastic quiet cottage hidden in the middle of woodland. The short dirt track leading to the cottage will not be to everyones liking, especially when wet, and it was VERY wet when we were there (but we loved it). TV reception is a bit & miss when weather is bad (but who cares? We didn't need it!). Great Wi-fi connection available for all trip and sightseeing planning. Minor mishap when we lost water supply for 24 hours+. But all concerned endeavoured to correct the fault as soon as possible. Would recommend this cottage for those who just want shut the world out and relax or a family with young children. It is a fantastic base for all of the North Fife and coastal villages. We will be using this cottage again, hopefully soon. But for 2 weeks next time.
    Owners Response: "Many thanks for this review. I'm delighted you enjoyed the cottage, and very grateful for the feedback about the television reception. When I checked it out, I discovered that a shrub in the garden had obscured the satellite dish, and needed a good haircut. A few swift cuts with the loppers and perfect reception was restored. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.  "
