    Comfort and Equipment

    out of 10

    All great but very uncomfortable low sofa.



    out of 10

    This was an ideal base for visiting Fife, both coast and inland. The cottage is perfect for two and the owner is very approachable and helpful. Good shops in Cupar for supplies plus Spar in Ceres.



    out of 10

    Beautiful cottage in a wonderful village. Folk museum just few hundred yards away. Well worth a visit. Everyone we met in the shops and cafes were very friendly and helpful. Cottage had everything you need. The sofa was very low and soft which was the only thing that was inconvenient as I am disabled Will definitely be back



    out of 10

    Ceres is a base for St Andrews and Fife, not an end in itself as it's too small. It's still a lovely place after 50 years of knowing it. The cottage was well fitted out and light, with parking available and I do not have a bad word to say about it. The local supermarket was well stocked but sad to see Meldrums pub and restaurant shuttered, we had looked forward to going there. St Andrews thrives and is utterly beautiful always but has become so busy that it was relaxing to be an easy fifteen minute drive away.



    out of 10

    Nice cottage set out of the way.



    out of 10

    This was the second time we have stayed in this accommodation and, like before, it had everything we required. The standard of cleanliness and comfort was excellent, contributing to a very enjoyable holiday. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.



    out of 10

    We would highly recommend this cottage. It provided a great choice of entertainment selection. Great for adults and children. Plenty of information regarding eating out, takeaways and instruction manuals on the equipment provided in the accommodation and a drawer full of information of walks etc. Extremely impressed.



    out of 10

    One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Superbly and thoughtfully equipped, everything of a high standard. Well-located for exploring Fife and further afield, although Ceres itself does not offer many amenities apart from a pub (food only on Fridays & Saturdays while we were there), tea room and Spar.



    out of 10

    Excellent holiday, although disappointed with V&A museum.



    out of 10

    This is a lovely little cottage in a beautiful little village. Only one shop in the village but less than 3 miles from Cupar with supermarkets for anything you need. The cottage is no more than 10 miles from all the East Neuk attractions. If you have dogs it's a great location - a small park across the road and a rural walk up Craighall Den a minute from your gate. The cottage is one of the best equipped I have ever spent time in, lots of thought to what you might need and never once thought I needed something that wasn't already there. Completely over exceeded my "as long as it's clean" expectations. A very comfortable stay and would definitely recommend. The locals in the only pub are really friendly people.



    out of 10

    Was a generally ok cottage, but quite unclean. There were dirty dishes left in the dishwasher, and the floors had bits of food scattered about them, which wasn't very pleasant. Could have done with some basics e.g. scissors in the kitchen. Shower temperamental and often either too hot or too cold. Other than that, nice space, nice outdoor area and modern enough.



    out of 10

    Great warm & comfy cottage, well equipped kitchen - Home from Home! Pet Freindly Bonus....



    out of 10

    Ceres is a pleasant village, well situated to visit attractions in East Neuk and beyond. The Castle Dairy’s location within the village is unremarkable. Inside, the accommodation was sparklingly clean. The decor is to the owner’s taste, presumably - amusing in part. The layout is convenient and most essentials are to hand. The sofa is awful, being so low and unsupportive. Thank goodness for the upholstered dining chairs! At winter season prices, the rental is very good value. Our rating for “comfort and equipment” would have been 10 were it not for the sofa.



    out of 10

    Very comfortable and modern nice big bedroom and very well equipped facilities



    out of 10

    Was spoiled by cottage through the wall with noise and open yard at front playing ball at 8am with dog running past my front door and window thus annoying my dog
