Morton of Pitmilly Countryside Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Been staying at Morton of Pitmilly for 16 years now - and that says it all. Great place, especially with children, but fine for the adults too. Lovely, warm, little pool. Super children's play area. Bring wellingtons and woollies for walking down to and playing tennis/working out in the (brisk)sports barn

Room Tip: Best small house is the Doocot - large sitting room/kitchen and best patio for (any) sunshine. Unles...

Another great at MOP - - and our granddaughter was with us for the first time. Everything went well - a couple of problems with radiators - but fixed right away and an additional radiator provided,just in case.

3 trips to MOP in 2013 - hope we can manage 3 next year - -just perfect and so relaxing.

We stayed in the doocot for a long weekend in November. The accommodation was great, fairly traditional but very comfy. It's in a beautiful location - 15 minutes from St Andrews. The team at Morton were so, so friendly - great place for a relaxing break.

Lovely cottage, well equiped, perfect for a toddler and baby with the pool (nice and warm for kids), trampoline and chickens. Quiet, peaceful, helpful staff and lovely fresh eggs for sale! Nature trail great for kids too.

We returned here after 5 years absence. What can I say? Still the most welcoming holiday cottages in Fife. We holiday in the east coast of scotland every November for a week. We combine a weekend with our grandsons and spend the other days Christmas shopping and in the evenings we relax.

Our Grandsons loved the playpark and the swimming pool and the games hall and putting.

We loved seeing them happy and enjoying the peace and quiet relaxing with a glass of wine while watching a hired DVD.

Morton of pitmilly continue to improve their accommodation and offer more at every visit.

We love it and will be returning next November.

Room Tip: Choose the cottage that suits, they are all lovely.

We visited for one week from 25th October, staying at Swallow Cottage, our first trip back for many years. Without doubt even better than we remembered, the owners have planned the cottages and facilities perfectly. We loved the cosy, clean, well equiped cottage, immediately outside the door are miles of walks around the farm, superb facilities for families (which we did not use as a more mature couple). Very much appreciated being able to take our little dog. Picking up our papers, milk, rolls etc. from the Pantry in the morning was a treat and Pitmilly eggs are a class above - loved seeing the chickens too!

In the wider area is the absolutely stunning Kingsbarns beach, fishing ports of Crail, Pitenweem, and Anstruther an of course St Andrews.

We loved it all and will certainly return as soon as we can.

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...
