This cosy bungalow has woodburner and Tentsmuir Point is nearby, where you can see hundreds of seals basking on sandbars.

Quietly situated in the charming village of Ceres, 8 miles from the magnificent beaches and championship golf courses at St Andrews, these two holiday cottages, adjacent to each other, have been stylishly converted from a listed building to create a superb holiday base. Nearby attractions include the Hill of Tarvit Mansion House, a fascinating National Trust house and gardens with Hatters Edwardian Tearoom and a 9 hole ‘Hickory’ golf course, the Fife Falconry Centre, and horse riding in the village. There are excellent footpaths for walking and cycling with stunning views of coast and countryside, whilst the Tents Muir National Nature Reserve has a fabulous walk along the beach to Tentsmuir Point where hundreds of seals can be seen basking on the sandbars. Visit The Eden Estuary Centre and Morton Lochs and watch waterfowl from dedicated bird hides. St Andrews itself is steeped in history and has a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants, tearooms, museum and the Sea Life Centre. Perth and Dundee are easily accessible, whilst the wonders of Edinburgh are just 40 miles away. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

    The cottage had everything you needed , it was clean and beautifully decorated. We had good weather and it wasn't far to travel to St Andrews and the coast for lovely walks on the beach. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

    Beautifully located cottage. Lovely village - great as a base for exploring Fife. Love the wood burning stove. Dishwasher & washing machine came in handy with a 7-month old. Bit of an issue on arrival but owner handled it wonderfully and couldn't have been more accommodating. Would definitely visit again!

    Excellent holiday cottage, great for two people, or four. All the equipment including cooker and utensils are good quality, and everything you would need is in the cottage -even a slow cooker! Very quiet village, fantastic bed, very comfortable-slept really well. Main supermarkets are just a few miles down the road, and most of Fife is within easy driving distance-we had some great days out, in St, Andrews, the coastal fishing villages, Dundee, and could have gone on the train to Edinburgh from Cupar-but ran out of time! Loved the wood burner, especially when a storm was raging outside! Would love to return some time, maybe one summer!

    Excellent base near Cupar and St. Andrews. The village has a well stocked shop and post office and a pub 5 mins walk and a hotel - 8 mins walk - both serving food. Well equiped comfortable cottage and very cosy in a cold week in January. Sheena popped round to check all was well which was a very friendly touch.

    Fantastic cottage. Very clean and everything you would need for a short break from a washing machine to dvds and games to keep us all entertained. Great location for St Andrews and the surrounding area.
