Perfect cottage for a quiet break
We enjoyed a perfect stay at this beautiful cottage in Fife. There were lots of local walks and plenty of places to visit within a short drive. Falkland and Loch Leven are must visits. The cottage is equipped to the highest level and was very clean and tidy.
We had a great holiday staying in this lovely cottage. It is finished to a high standard and very comfortably furnished. It is equipped with everything you could need and is immaculately clean.
The owners next door were welcoming and helpful. Lynn was particularly helpful in watching over our old dog when we went out.
The cottage is in a lovely location with great countryside views. It is an ideal base for exploring the lovely Kingdom of Fife.
So glad you enjoyed your stay in our cottage Roy. I hope Buddy is well, it was not a problem to keep an eye on him.
Beautiful Country Cottage
Staying in this beautiful cottage provided us with an authentic Scottish experience. It is beautifully decorated and anything you might need is provided. Lynne and Mike are friendly , welcoming ,and very helpful. This was our first trip to Scotland. It provided us with a central location for travel. It is an easy walk to the village for dinner, a drink at the local pub, and grocery supplies. If you are a hiker, a forrest with numerous trails is a fun option. We highly recommend this Scottish cottage.
Thanks Leroy for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay in our cottage. It was a pleasure to meet you and Kathy and we would welcome you back anytime.
Clean and well-supplied cottage with spacious views of rolling fields and hills.
Very clean and well supplied cottage with all amenities. Lovely views and local walks. We played 'Bluebell Polka' with guitar and two fiddles to honour Jimmy Shand! Saw red squirrels in the nearby woods, and deer jumping fences.
Great cottage, home from home.
Lovely and clean, the owners are helpful, and the cottage is all that you expect it to be.
As soon as we arrived the cottage felt welcoming and homely with little personal touches, lovely secure garden for the dogs.
