Morton of Pitmilly Countryside Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 November 2013

A group of 6 of us, all friends from school, stayed at Meadowside for the weekend to celebrate our 40th birthday year. It was an excellent choice!

The "cottage" was huge and very well appointed. The downstairs had a huge open plan kitchen, dining, living area with all the amenities you'd need. Floor to ceiling windows gave us an amazing view across fields to the sea and alongisde was a patio with table and chairs to sit and soak up the early autumn sunshine. The photos online really don't do it justice!

Upstairs were 3 bedrooms made up as twin rooms (they'll make them up as doubles if required). Each one had it's own ensuite so there were no bathroom queues!

There's plenty to do on site - small swimming pool, croquet, tennis, etc, etc - but we used our "cottage" as a great base to visit St Andrews and the surrounding area. There's plenty to see/do in close proximity if you have a car (or are happy to do some walking).

I'd recommend Morton of Pitmilly to anyone who wants top class accommodation, a relaxing break and the chance to explore St Andrews or the surrounding area.We were looking for somewhere to chill out and catch up and Morton of Pitmilly was the perfect choice. Like staying in a 5* hotel but self catering!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely but if you're the first in your party to arrive you can bag the room wi...

We have just had 4 nights in Bramble Bank and had a great time...it really is spot on - the email service beforehand, the welcome and the excellent facilities too.
We also loved the indoor tennis and Eileen who does the spa treatments is amazing - dont forget to book her in advance though - highly recommended!
Would love to go back soon!

My husband and I enjoyed our breaking Farriers Cottage it was a home from home ,everything we could need was in the cottage and spotless. My husband being slightly disabled made good use of the pool which was next door to the cottage.Our spaniel Ellie and I loved the set asides and we have to come back as we still have more walks to cover. It would be a great place to bring our grandchildren to as there are lots of facilities for children. Millys pantry was well used so cooking was kept to a minimum good selection of first class dishes.. Staff very friendly and helpfull
We will be back. Thanks for a most enjoyable break

We stayed in Cart Arch Cottage for an October Break. We are addicted to MOP and can't stop going back. It really does get better and better and better. The cottages are really well equipped and clean and the facilities wonderful. Over the years seeing deer and hares from the swimming pool has been amazing. It is also a perfect base for exploring Fife but to be honest once you get in you don't want to get out again. Can't wait for our next visit. A huge thank you to all the MOP staff who work so hard to make it such a wonderful place.

My wife and I stayed in the Old Dairy cottage in August and were delighted with the quality and cleanliness of the cottage. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the surroundings are just wonderful. We had a fantastic break and left feeling very relaxed and refreshed.
When we had the opportunity to go back again a few weeks later, we jumped at the chance. Unfortunately, a couple of days before our planned trip, we were unable to make it due to circumstances beyond our control. The staff were very accommodating and even managed to move the booking back a week to allow our daughters to make use of it instead. Wonderful customer service which guarantees that we will be back time and time again.
I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Stayed at Bramble Bank for a reunion of 6 50 year-olds who went to college together. The accommodation is absolutely brilliant, spotlessly clean with everything you can think of for self- catering. 5 of us had massages on site with Eileen and she was fantastic and flexible with what we wanted, timings etc. There is so much to do, we walked to St Andrews along the coast one day and to Craill the next but it is the perfect place to do nothing. Hope we can find an excuse to go back. Thank you to all those involved with our stay.

Room Tip: Bramble Bank was perfect as the 3 en-suite rooms could be doubles or twins.

I have just spent a week, staying at the Granary cottage with 8 other family members. The whole ambience of Morton of Pitmilly is quiet relaxation, the cottages are first class with beautiful bedding, towels, bath robes and the staff are friendly without being intrusive. The family all loved the pool and we had great fun on the putting green and table tennis, and our young grandsons loved the new cycle track and play park.

Superbly located for St Andrews and for exploring the wonderful East Nuek of Fife and I fell in love with Crail which oozes quaintness from every angle.

Room Tip: All the cottages are very similar to the granary. I very quiet and there were no disturbances to ou...
