The south-facing deck provides an ideal spot to admire the scenic surroundings, with a hot tub perfectly positioned to take in the expansive views of the surrounding fields — a perfect setting for an evening drink.

Map & Local

Ceres (4.5 miles) has a few small shops and supermarket supplies can be picked up from one of the nearby supermarkets. For a very special meal out the Michelin-star Peat Inn Restaurant (3 miles) is only a short drive away.

It is also less than 10 minutes’ drive to St Andrews that is known for its university (the oldest in Scotland) and as the ‘home of golf’ due to its world-famous golf courses. The town has a choice of three attractive sandy beaches with the 2 mile stretch at West Sands being a particular draw.

One of the historic sights of St Andrews are the ruins of 13th century St Andrews Castle that sits in a dramatic clifftop setting. It is interesting to picture it in its former glory during a walk around the site and the grim Bottle Dungeon that prisoners were once lowered into is certainly worth seeing.

Spend an afternoon at Scotland’s Secret Bunker (11 miles) that sits 100 feet underground beneath a modest farmhouse and was kept secret for over 40 years! 24,000 square feet of accommodation was created in the 1950s to protect the government and key figures from the threat of nuclear attack. The exhibits are fascinating to explore and there is even has a resident bunker cat to look out for.

Over on the east coast the fishing village of Crail (14 miles) is a lovely place to stop for a look at the picturesque harbour or enjoy the typical seaside treat of fish and chips. Dotted further along the sunny coastline are the pretty coastal towns of Anstruther, Pittenweem and St Monans that are all worth visiting.
