“Excellent!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We have just spent a week here. We stayed at the Rowans, spending the first few days just myself and my husband then joined by our grown up kids at the weekend for a family reunion. We feel like we've found a precious gem of a location for a family break. We loved the many pathways around the grounds for lovely walks and found the location perfect for exploring the surrounding area- St. Andrews in one direction then the beautiful costal villages and towns (Crail, Anstruther etc) in the other. The Rowans was spotless clean and extremely well equipped and furnished. We had a lovely relaxing break as a couple and it was an ideal lay out for our family get together. We will definitely come back and would highly recommend it to others.

Just spent another fantastic time at M of P. This was my 8th visit, 4 with husband,and 4 with friends.....the experience just keeps getting better. We took in the airshow at Leuchars great day again shame its the final one. We stayed in The Byre cottage the usual excellent standards, very clean and very cosy.We had walks round the grounds, relaxed in the pool sauna and steam room,and had a putting competition.
The weekend went so fast we hope to have another visit before the end of the year if not then spring time....... would recommend a visit to anyone who has never been friendly/helpful staff great location handy for St Andrews, Crail, Anstruther, and lots more so take your camera....

Really enjoyed another wonderful holiday, Morton of Pitmilly is the perfect base - relaxing, beautiful location and excellent facilities. The houses are a real home from home with everything you could need and are really clean (lovely fresh white sheets and soft white towels) and comfortable. The kids loved the swimming pool, tennis courts, putting and play park and we all loved the amazing nature trails. We took our bikes and with an easy 10 min cycle to the beach and lots of other fantastic routes it was really worth having them. Sitting out in the courtyard for breakfast listening to the birds was just perfect - a real holiday to remember, thank you.

Really enjoyed our time in M of P.
Very clean, crisp bed linen/towels and kitchen very well equipped. Staff relaxed and hospitable. Beautiful location. Stayed in the original farmhouse building - beds a bit uncomfortable! Furnishings could do with a bit of an upgrade. Don't let this put you off - you will enjoy your time here - but if you're expecting luxury you'll be disappointed. Haven't been in the new accommodation block so can't comment but it does look plush.

This was our 3rd visit to Pitmilly for a special family celebration. As always it holds a special magic and for the two youngsters (6yrs and 4 yrs) it was paradise. We were in the Granary, ideal for a party of 8, with lots of space. The facilities are excellent with so many activities to suit all ages and interests.
We found the property looking somewhat tired. The shower was faulty, the shower receptacle was empty, the TV in the lounge worked erratically and the coffee maker still had coffee grains in it from the last guests!
I am happy to pay for quality, but for the first time, (and I have recommended Pitmilly to several friends) I was disappointed.

We were ex st andrews students on a nostalgic hen do and I couldn't have asked for more. Both the cart arch and granary were spotless and well stocked with all our self catering needs. We had a sneaky play on the trampoline and I thoroughly enjoyed the pool area all to myself with amazing views before the others got up in the morning!

Definitely the place to go to for any bigger parties who might not find accommodation in the centre of St As.

We stayed at the Morton of Pitmilly in July. We were in a very large wedding party and I think we had most of the accommodation in both the courtyard and the steading! There were varying ages from baby to pensioner and all thoroughly enjoyed their time there. We stayed in the Cart-Arch, it was beautiful, very cosy and very clean. It was perfect for our requirements. The grounds are beautiful and very spacious. I didn't get to see all that was on offer, but my other half played tennis and swam in the pool. The children played on the trampoline and I wish we had stayed longer to explore all that was on offer. We have already discussed with our friends about returning next year in a big group with all of our children. I would definitely recommend the Morton of Pitmilly to everyone. Looking forward to booking up for next year :)!!!
