“Just perfect”
Reviewed 26 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Such a lovely cottage to stay in. Perfectly clean, spotless bedrooms and a well stocked kitchen made it a great base for us. When we asked if there was a bathroom seat and step for a 4 year old the owner couldn't have been more helpful in ensuring one was here in time for our trip. We'll definitely recommend Painter's Cottage to others and I'm sure we'll be back again!

Thanks so much for your lovely review! It was a pleasure to be able to get the seat and save you from having to bring one - we know what its like travelling with children (kitchen sink and all). We'd love to have you all back sometime! All the best for now. Linda at Lowland Lettings

“Perfect accomadation”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Visiting from NZ to see the Open accomadation was hard to find so picked this place as not too far from St Andrews( 1hr 25min). We could not have picked a better cottage to stay in . Without going into to much detail everything was perfect and very comfortable. Wn was nice to stroll around and people very friendly. Highly recommend this cottage for all travellers. Good parking and wi-fi warm and beautifully decorated. Thanks for your generosity.

“Homely and spotlessly clean.”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed for a long weekend on lead up to Christmas. Perfect location to travel to Edinburgh. The cottage itself was very Homely and spotlessly clean. Well equipped kitchen with every thing required for a short or long stay. The owners left presents and a letter from Santa for out 2 children, which was a magical touch. Would definitely return and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed vacation in a clean and well equipped cottage in an historic market town with easy access to Edinburgh.

“Perfect Cottage in an ideal location.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Lovely cottage with everything you need for a holiday from home and more. The owners had left us a personal welcome note and all relevant information needed to make our stay a comfortable one. Good size, (we are a family of four) cosy and tasteful decor in keeping with the cottage. The outside garden was perfect to sit out and relax after a busy day exploring.

“absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My husband, 2 children & I stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. The house itself was immaculate and so well maintained, it had everything we needed, from books & games to a well stocked kitchen.
the court yard was brilliantly safe for the children to play out in as the gates closed and locked.
As the owners knew it was my 30th birthday we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a lovely keepsake heart which was really touching & such a thoughtful gift.
honestly cant recommend this holiday let highly enough, the town was a beautiful base for exploring and the owners went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect.
Thank you so very much
