Find cottages in Fife

As you might expect from the ancestral home of Scotland’s monarchs, Fife has a rich heritage and some wonderful historic attractions, as well as a stunning coastline, quiet beautiful countryside and one of the highest concentrations of top class golf courses in Britain.

This small county is packed with a great diversity of landscapes, extending from the Firth of Forth in the south which includes Dunfermline (Scotland’s former capital) and the famous Forth Road and Rail bridges, to St. Andrews and the rural north. All along extends its eastern coastline with pretty bays, dramatic cliffs, Blue Flag sandy beaches and old fishing villages.

St. Andrews is well known for its golf courses and is home to Royal and Ancient Golf Course. But in addition the town, which is Scotland’s oldest university town, has a charming old-world feel and is close to an expansive beach. St Andrews cathedral may be a shadow of its former self, but well worth visiting. You can spend hours exploring the history and admiring the views here.

Exploring to the south of St. Andrews the coastline is dotted with small fishing villages, such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenween, East Nuek and St. Monans. The Fife Coastal Path extends along this coastline and is perfect for bracing walks and magnificent sea views, where if you’re lucky you might see Grey seals, dolphins and basking sharks. Boat trips are available from Anstruther to the Isle of May where many sea birds nest at certain times of the year.

Of note is Falkland Palace, which was a rather regal holiday home for many Stuart monarchs, including Mary, Queen of Scots. Beautifully maintained, you can explore the palace and gardens at your leisure – including Britain’s oldest tennis court. Also of interest are Kellie Castle and Garden which dates back to the 14th century and contains fascinating interiors and lovely wooded gardens.

For those looking for an active holiday Fife has plenty of activities for all ages from great walking and biking trails to horse riding and clay pigeon shooting to first class water sports.

    Ref: CC526039
    Discover this B Listed Arts and Crafts house designed by Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott, one of only two in Scotland. Set in seven acres of glorious Fife countryside and first known as ’Sandford Cottage’, it was built in 1902 for Harben J Valentine, the photographic publisher from Dundee and photographers to Queen Victoria.

    Originally, the house was built with red brick walls and thatched using reeds from the River Tay. As the Valentine’s business grew, another wing was added, also brick with a thatched roof, but disaster struck in 1910 when the house suffered a catastrophic fire. Baillie Scott was once again commissioned to redesign the house and it was re-built this time with brick walls that were harled and a rosemary tiled roof to reduce the fire risk. In the 1930s, Sandford House became the family home of Sir William and Lady Walker, and during the war years, the house was used as the leaving centre for the Norwegians of the 333 Catalina flying boat squadron, who moored their aircraft at Wormit Pier. During 1960, the house was converted to a hotel and a wing was added later which the majority of the holiday accommodation is situated and has been restored, in keeping with the arts and craft style. Using solid oak beams, posts and flooring and furnished to a high level of comfort, it has a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture. You are at the ideal all year round location to explore this area of rural Fife; historic St Andrews (ten miles), Dundee (five miles) and Cupar (eight miles) are just a short drive as are the white sandy beach and dunes of Tentsmuir Country Park (eight miles).

    Lady Bluebell is a ground floor apartment and is situated on the north west corner of the building. With a large private terrace outside it is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and enjoying the views. Comfortably furnished with a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture, the open plan, spacious living area has a wood burner to keep you cosy on the winter nights. For Arts and Crafts architecture fans a guided tour can be arranged.

    Lady Bluebell can be booked with Baillie Scott (CC526037), Valentines (CC526038) and The Giddy Limit (CC526040) to accommodate up to 20 guests.

    An ideal touring base
    Beach 200 yards


    The Great Lodging is located in the heart of the seaside village of Anstruther, or Anster, as it’s known locally. The Great Lodging, known as ‘Fernbank’ for many years until the current owners revived the original name in 1993, consisted of four separate dwellings dating back to the 1500s. In 1643 it was owned by the Borthwick family who owned many estates nearby. In 1752 it was passed to George Dishington, who is strongly believed to be a descendant of Robert the Bruce, King of Scots. Dishington went on to buy the other properties that now form The Great Lodging. His descendants lived in the property until 1885 when it was owned by John Melville-Keay, captain of ‘Ariel’, a China tea clipper ship which almost won The Great Tea Race of 1866. The most famous of all tea clipper ships has to be the ‘Cutty Sark’ whose captain, George Moodie, was born in Fife.

    The aptly named Great Lodging Red House (ref 29785) provides accommodation spanning three floors. It is tastefully furnished throughout with antique and period furniture. Spiral stairs wind through the house to the living/dining room, then up to the bedrooms. After catching your breath and admiring the view from the double bedroom, continue to the top floor from where you will be rewarded with wonderful views over the Firth of Forth and a spacious second living room spanning the whole of the second floor.

    Garden Flat (ref 29784) forms part of the owner’s home and offers a real home from home atmosphere and makes a perfect retreat for 2 guests. It is furnished with period furniture and antique rugs and retains many original features including an inviting open fire in the living room and quarry tiled floors. The living and dining room also have quaint window seats which look onto the private, south-facing patio – a real sun trap on summer days.

    Guests are welcome to wander in the well-tended garden of the main house, shared with the owners - the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the area. Both properties can be booked together for up to 8 guests. Ideal for friends or two families who wish to holiday together, but also have some privacy.

    This picturesque corner of Fife, known as East Neuk, has many visitor attractions including many championship golf courses and is only 9 miles from St Andrews. Enjoy leisurely walks on the beach just 200 yards walk and treat yourself to fish and chips from an award-winning restaurant on the seafront. If you wish to venture further afield then the bustling city of Dundee can be reached in 30 minutes, and Perth and Edinburgh within an hours’ drive. Shops, restaurants and bars are all within a few hundred yards of your front door.

    Ground floor: Utility. Spiral stairs to first floor: Living room. Dining room/kitchen. Shower room with toilet. Spiral stairs to second floor: 3 bedrooms: 2 double (one 5ft), 1 twin. Bathroom with toilet. Steep, narrow stairs to third floor: Second living room with sloping ceilings.
