The ambiance of Bowhouse is beautifully captured in one of its five star reviews :-
"Lovely location with a homely feel
We arrived late at night and didn't really get to see the house until the following morning, when we were very pleasantly surprised by the charming location - horses coming up to chat over the garden walls - the wonderful views from almost every window, and the general homey-ness of the house.
It has clearly been a much loved home and remains a haven, with unexpected nooks, a warm, sun filled conservatory and lovely large open rooms. It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week there, big enough to accommodate our extended family and guests with ease, and a lovely entertaining space also. We enjoyed early morning in the conservatory just as much as late night chats, and the facilities overall entirely met our needs (definitely got value from the dishwasher too!). The children were delighted by a selection of interesting toys and games, and the adults tucked into a wonderfully random collection of books .It is a charming, tucked away location where there is a pervasive sense of peace and quiet which was a very much needed respite".

Bowhouse is a wonderful base for exploring the beautiful East Neuk of Fife, with its beaches and quaint fishing villages. There are plenty of golf courses too - St Andrews is about 25 miles away – and sports activities to enjoy. The farmhouse is within easy reach of Edinburgh, the Trossachs, and Stirling. Yet despite Bowhouse’s rural location, it’s less than three miles from the dual carriageway leading to the Scottish motorway system.
Whether you’re looking for a sporting, cultural or relaxing holiday, Bowhouse can help make your stay in Scotland one to remember.
