Should have planned more time here.

  • 5 of 5

Large roomy and well appointed apartment. Private very quiet location with park like grounds. Apartment has provided everything a weary traveler could need . Walked to town and good food and drink. Short drive to St Andrew. The building is beautiful and post card worthy outside and in. Wonderful but all to short of stay.

Luxurious privacy in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable, wonderfully equipped and very private apartment in a beautiful part of Scotland. It is convenient to Edinburgh, St. Andrews and many other attractions and is a great place from which to explore the country. I only wish that our visit had not been so brief. We look forward to returning!

Gorgeous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. It was spotless, spacious and everything we could possibly need during our stay was thought of. The welcome gift basket was so thoughtful and meant we didn't have to rush out for bread & milk straight away! Plus a huge selection of teas which is always a plus point for me.

4 children absolutely loved it and it accepts pets so that helped too. She enjoyed running around with the neighbours dogs on the grounds!

We will definitely be using the flat again if we are back visiting family.

Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the fife area

Beautiful home for a brilliant break

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home, extremely comfortable with everything we needed, we were there for a quiet break which the setting was ideal for. Couple of grocery shops within walking distance and the town centre's not far either. We had an amazing time and can't wait to go back! Ieuan
