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: CC526037
    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 in 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 , the property is 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).

    Baillie Scott is situated at the gable end of the holiday homes wing with stunning views over the Fife countryside. The private, south-facing terrace with garden furniture and a barbecue is perfect for relaxing on summer evenings or the cosy open plan living, kitchen, dining room with a wood burner on cooler days. For Arts and Crafts architecture fans a guided tour can be arranged.

    Baillie Scott can be booked with Valentines (CC526038), Lady Bluebell (CC526039) and The Giddy Limit (CC526040) to accommodate up to 20 guests.
