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.

    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.

    Very comfortable and restful few days spent delivering our son's stuff to university. Spacious cottage and well equipped. Very handy for St Andrews and the village of Cernes has a nice restaurant and the tea shop did an excellent breakfast. Only slight problem was the temperature gauge on the shower seemed jammed.

    This was a near perfect holiday cottage for us. The cottage was cosy and the beds immensely comfortable. The only downside was really the fact that parking on the relatively busy road did prove a challenge with a large vehicle. -It would be wonderful if a parking slot was available in the adjacent village hall car park.

    Lovely cottage, very clean and modern. Would stay again. Would upgrade the sofas and TV though.
