Beautiful family stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
My mum, dad, brother and two nieces came to stay in squirrel barn on 11th August 2012. I met them on the evening of Tuesday 14th August. We were all amazed by the high quality of the barn. The rooms were all very spacious and exceptionally clean and immaculate. The playroom was an added bonus and helped to keep my two nieces occupied. The setting is very peaceful yet close to a very wide range of activities, from beautiful beaches to fun days out. There are chickens producing fresh eggs for sale during the stay and they were lovely. The family that own the property are lovely and even welcomed my family with fruit, wine and coffee etc and paid careful attention to making sure every room had fresh towels and immaculate bedding etc. This made our stay very enjoyable. We will all definately be back, especially as the model Steam engine is currently being renovated to travel around the barn, with its track currenty being laid down. Wonderful for families and couples as it is surrounded by the most picturesque scenery and is very tranquil. I rate this stay very highly and if I were asked to mark it out of 10 it would get 12 every time. Fantastic and well worth a stay, only shame was a week was not long enough and we were all sad to leave!

Wonderful Stay At Squirrel Barn

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 13, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We had a lovely stay in Squirrel Barn for one week. The accommodation is great, decorated to a high standard, very warm and comfortable, feels traditional but fresh as well. The open plan living area is great for families, as is the games room which is a big bonus, especially when you're not sure how the weather is going to be! The area and location is perfect: very quiet with great scenery any time you travel to and from the property and a great location to get easily to Dundee or St. Andrews, or Perth and Edinburgh if you travel a little farther.

Equally important were the owners, who were very friendly and helpful and there to greet us when we arrived. I thoroughly recommend anyone to stay there for a long or short break and we would love to go back again.
Owner's Response: Thank you for recommending Squirrel Barn here at Coultra Steading. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday here and hope to see you again. We try to make it a "holiday to enjoy" for all our guests. This part of the Kingdom of Fife is really a hidden gem.
