Beautifully renovated, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were greeted by Kate the owner who was very helpful and friendly. The Old Stables is a well equipped and tastefully renovated cottage. Swimming pool, hot tubs and games room/gym were a major bonus for us as a family. The property is located in a lovely quiet area of Fife but still within easy reach of Perth, Dunfermline, St Andrews etc. The area is steeped in history with lots to see and do, e.g. Falkland Palace a mere 3 miles away. We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family and we will definitely be back. Thanks again Kate.

A beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here, cottage was lovely with all mod cons and very clean. Facilities excellent particularly the hot tub. Local pubs only did food towards the weekend and the chip shop didn't open on a Tuesday which I thought during the summer season was a bit strange. But other than that we had a really enjoyable relaxing stay.
