Cupar, Fife, Scotland
Welcome to Garden Cottage. The cottage is right in the heart of our country estate in Fife, about 9 miles from St Andrews and its many golf courses. The Estate comprises about 200 acres of arable land, and although close to Cupar and St Andrews, it is a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil place.
The cottage is stone built, and set in its own garden, with a lawn to the front, grass to the back, with woodlands at the side. It is sits on a private road, which is only used by cottage guests, and the very occasional tractor working on the estate. It is probably about 2 hundred years old, and has lots of character and traditional charm.
Downstairs the cottage has a spacious sitting room, with an open fire, flat screen TV, with free-sat channels, a DVD player and a selection of books, DVDs and games. We supply a starter pack of coal, and unlimi...

Four of us stayed here over New Year and had a very relaxed time; it was a great start to 2017. The Garden Cottage was an excellent base for us to explore the area - my wife didn't want to leave. When we arrived, there were fresh flowers in 2 of the rooms, food in the fridge, sweet treats, fruit,...

A lovely cosy cottage in peaceful surroundings and excellent location for visiting St Andrews. We found the cottage a real home from home with many lovely extra touches such as flowers, fresh eggs from the chickens and a welcome pack. The basket of children's activities books was a big hit with the kids! The cottage has very comfortable beds and...

About the neighbourhood
Cupar is the old market town of Fife. There is still a Farmers Market once a month, where local farmers sell their produce. Fife Show is held on our farm in May each year, and is a great spectacle. It is however on the other side of the farm from Garden Cottage, and it is possible to completely ignore it, if you prefer not to participate. There are many historic places to visit, such as Falkland Palace, and other National Trust properties.
