Garden Cottage, nr St Andrews, Fife

Garden cottage is an enchanting mixture of old and new. It is a traditional stone built cottage, originally for the estate gardener, but now it is fully equipped for your comfort and convenience. The location of this cottage is practically perfect in every way (to quote Mary Poppins!!) and is set in the heart of our country estate. It has views over the duck pond to the front, and rolling hills and fields at the back. But it is still within easy reach of Cupar and St Andrews, so is a perfect base from which to explore Fife, Edinburgh, and further afield in Scotland. It has 2 bedrooms, and can sleep 4 adults, a child and baby. It has a full bathroom with showerbath, basin and toilet, and a separate cloakroom with toilet and basin. Our prices include all bed linen and twoels, timed heating from 1 Sept to 1 June, free unlimited fast broadband wi-fi, and use of our tennis court. We also supply a starter pack of coal for the open fire in the sitting room, and unlimited logs.

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.What a great way to spend a comfortable 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 also 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, and there is also a piano, for the musically gifted! The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, fridge, 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 also many ducklings, swimming in line behind their mothers. We are also regularly visited by Harry the Heron, and very occasionally, by otters. On the estate, we breed Highland Cattle, the long-horned traditional Scottish cattle. They are very beautiful and can been seen on the farm at all ages - from the newly born calves to the mature cattle. Most of them have names. Our  newest calves are Morag, and Dougal.  
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 is back again in July 2015, 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 also has free wi-fi internet access for guests to use. The cottage 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!
