NB Sloping banks steps and unfenced pond in grounds. \n\n Discover this B Listed Arts and Crafts house designed by Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott one of only two in Scotland. Set in seven acres of glorious Fife countryside and first known as ’Sandford Cottage’ it was built in 1902 for Harben J Valentine the photographic publisher from Dundee and photographers to Queen Victoria.\n\nOriginally the house was built with red brick walls and thatched using reeds from the River Tay. As the Valentine’s business grew another wing was added also brick with a thatched roof but disaster struck in 1910 when the house suffered a catastrophic fire. Baillie Scott was once again commissioned to redesign the house and it was re-built this time with brick walls that were harled and a rosemary tiled roof to reduce the fire risk. In the 1930s Sandford House became the family home of Sir William and Lady Walker and during the war years the house was used as the leaving centre for the Norwegians of the 333 Catalina flying boat squadron who moored their aircraft at Wormit Pier. During 1960 the house was converted to a hotel and a wing was added later in which the majority of the holiday accommodation is situated and has been restored in keeping with the arts and craft style. Using solid oak beams posts and flooring the property is furnished to a high level of comfort it has a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture. You are at the ideal all year round location to explore this area of rural Fife historic St Andrews ten miles Dundee five miles and Cupar eight miles are just a short drive as are the white sandy beach and dunes of Tentsmuir Country Park eight miles. \n\nBaillie Scott is situated at the gable end of the holiday homes wing with stunning views over the Fife countryside. The private south-facing terrace with garden furniture and a barbecue is perfect for relaxing on summer evenings or the cosy open plan living kitchen dining room with a wood burner on cooler days. For Arts and Crafts architecture fans a guided tour can be arranged. \n\n\nBaillie Scott can be booked with Valentines CC526038 Lady Bluebell CC526039 and The Giddy Limit CC526040 to accommodate up to 20 guests.\n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/965/840/965874.jpg CC526037

    This is a gorgeous place to stay, from the warmth of the welcome to the comfort of the house itself. Everything has been thought about so carefully to make this a true home from home: you look forward to returning to it after a day's sightseeing. It would be a wonderful place for a working holiday, as it's totally peaceful and the wifi is excellent. Thank you so much - we will definitely be back!
