This is the most exquisite of holiday homes, converted with great flair and imagination from an old steading which stands behind the owner's house in a peaceful location in the rolling hills of north Fife, exactly halfway between Perth and St Andrews (both 16m).

The quality of the accommodation is second-to-none. On the ground floor there is a spacious and very well-equipped kitchen-diner, a wonderful double-height sitting room with piano, wood burner and gallery above, and a twin bedroom (converts to super king) with en suite bathroom. Upstairs, besides the gallery, there is a double bedroom, again with excellent en suite facilities of bath and separate shower. From the upstairs windows there are superb views across the surrounding countryside.

The steading forms two sides of a secluded walled courtyard (furniture, BBQ) which guests will have for their own exclusive use for parking and enjoying alfresco meals and evening drinks.

The best of accommodation and the best of locations too, for Fife is famous not just for its golf but also for its delightful coastline of sleepy fishing villages, glorious beaches and its tranquil and beautiful countryside, ideal for walking, birdwatching and cycling. The pretty Georgian market town of Cupar (7m) provides all facilities and has lots of interesting shops and eating places. Nearby historic properties include Falkland Palace, the country residence of Stuart kings and queens, and the stunning house and gardens of Lorimer's Hill of Tarvit. Wildlife enthusiasts might spot seals or sea eagles at Tentsmuir Nature Reserve, the Fife Core path and Coastal path are both easily accessible, there is loch fishing at nearby Lindores and golf absolutely everywhere. As well as the legendary Old Course and six further courses at St Andrews, there are many excellent courses nearby.   Further afield, the famous Open course at Carnoustie and Ryder Cup 2014 venue Gleneagles are each about 45 minutes by car.

Easy access to the M90 and rail network means that you can be in Edinburgh, the Angus Glens or the Highlands within an hour, making this the perfect place from which to explore.  Glasgow, the west coast, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs are also quite feasible for day trips.

Much of the cottage's electricity is generated by photo-voltaic panels, so you can be 'green' as well as comfortable!

Bed linen, towels, electricity and  a starter pack of wood and the first 25 of CH are INCLUDED. Well-behaved pets are welcome by arrangement. Smoking is not permitted within the cottage.  Wi-Fi is INCLUDED, subject to provider.

This was our first vacation as a family with our son (2yr) and we couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay. We had a wonderful time here, especially being able to see the horses from the windows was a highlight for our son. Thank you very much for your hospitality.
