    Lovely location and welcome pack, cottage bedroom and bathrooms larger than expected. Down side the mattresses were brick hard and not comfortable. Half way through our stay the electrics in the cottage went out we called the owner who came around immediately but unfortunately he could not fix the problem and left us saying he would call an electrician. We had no cooker,wifi,tv sockets,also fridge and freezer so all food I had taken had to be put in the bin. We left the cottage to go home early as no point staying with no facilities and a note to the owner but heard nothing which I found very disappointing as my girls February holiday was cut short.

    Amazing cottage , beautiful surroundings , lots of wildlife - friendly chickens. Owner very nice and brill welcome pack. Great base location for exploring. Trains into Edinburgh from near the cottage were excellent. We plan to go back. We took out parents who are in their mid 80s and because all on one level they had no problems and the whole cottage was spacious Home from home Highly recommend

    Excellent location for seeing wildlife and for touring Fife with all its many attractions. Cottage has everything you need. Welcome pack much appreciated.



    out of 10

    Great location, very peaceful away from the main road. Local amenities less than 5 minutes by car. Location is brilliant for accessing Edinburgh, St Andrews and the surrounding area. The cottage is set in extensive grounds with its own castle ruins. The wildlife is a treat, we saw rabbits, hares, pheasants and deer. The three resident chickens are very tame and even try to get into the cottage!
