Overview

About the property

One bedroom, modern open-plan living space, shower-room, and private garden.

Unusual bright little house, cosy and comfortable, in small village near historic city of Dunfermline. The Wee Hauf offers you a modern open-plan living space, shower-room, and one bedroom opening directly onto a sun-trap patio and secluded private garden. Lie in bed and listen to the birds sing!

This is an ideal location from which you can explore the many attractions of the ancient Kingdom of Fife, from the golfing heritage of the Auld Course at St. Andrews, to the art gallery in Kirkcaldy, hometown of Jack Vettriano. There are plenty of local events, theatre and arts, sporting activity and motor racing at the Racewall and Knockhill to enjoy. More than lots of things to do, there's plenty of peace and quiet, so you can relax in Fife's beautiful countryside and coastline, including the Lomond Hills and Aberdour's Silver Sand beach. There's a convenience store in the village and with retail and leisure parks nearby, you don't have far to go to shop, eat out, see a film or go bowling

Just 20min from Edinburgh, the Wee Hauf is a short hop to the buzz of Edinburgh, for Hogmany or the world renown Festivals, as well as providing a great base to get out and explore Scotland. Dunfermline has excellent transport links by bus and rail, and the Wee Hauf is close to J3 on the M90. In under an hour, you can be in Perth, gateway to the Highlands, visit the C.R.Mackintosh designed tearooms in Glasgow, or relax in Peebles, amongst rolling Borders hills and salmon rivers.

We've been letting for holidays for over two years and received great reviews

About The Owner

I've been hosting for 2 years, making the annexe (I'd converted what used to be a shop!) available to others, after my dad and I agreed that he had settled really well where he was and didn't need it. As the annexe is self-contained, guests have their privacy but I like the chance to find out what interests them so I can give them some ideas on where to visit. After travelling to several far-flung places, I'm staying closer to home now so I can spend time with my grandchild.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Crossgates

A location that will let you quickly get places to enjoy the best Fife and Scotland has to offer.

What makes this house unique

I invested a lot of time and effort in the property - it was to be my Dad's home and going by comments (see below) it seems others appreciate the high standard I achieved and maintain.

For us it was a great place to get acquainted with Scotland.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is good, we could not hear the traffic in the bedroom. Clean sanitair, well equipped kitchen. Everything worked.

One of the advantages is the bus stop near by in the street, and the Halbeath Park and Ride at a 10 minutes walk from the doorstep.

We went to Edinburg and Glasgow by bus. On a mega card. We found the main information (time tables) at the cottage. The WIFI was also very helpful. For Glasgow we paid a little extra for it was out the Fife zone +. For us it was a nice way to get into the spirit of Scotland. The big plus for me was that I didn't have to drive (left) so it made it very relaxing!

An immaculate and well equipped home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay at this property, which we booked as a base from which to visit family close by. The interior was immaculate and felt very spacious - it is a bit like the Tardis - looks small from the outside but is much bigger inside!!

The kitchen was very well equipped, with a large freezer and a range of bits and pieces that are usually conspicuous by their absence in self catering properties eg sharp knives (!!!), a range of chopping boards, bin bags etc. A lot of thought has obviously gone into making guests comfortable.

The garden outside is a wonderful bonus - a sun trap, with patio doors leading from the bedroom outside. The weather was lovely during our stay so we really appreciated the outside space.

As we have family in the area, we would very happily stay.

Beau gite très bien placé

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte de Crossgates est idéalement situé : en effet, à quelques centaines de mètres se trouve un Park and ride. Vous pouvez y déposer votre véhicule gratuitement, et vous rendre en bus, pour un prix modique, a Edimbourg, Glasgow , St andrew's , etc....

Quant au gîte il est très confortable, bien agencé, et très agréable (la chambre est un régal pour prendre son petit déjeuner face au jardin)

Nous y avons passé un super séjour. Crossgates est un lieu stratégique pour visiter la région, particulierement Edimbourg (passez y plusieurs journées, il y a tant à voir )

Nous recommandons vivement ce gite .

Additional pricing information

Utility deposit per week £30
Refundable Damage Deposit £150
Pet Fee £0

Please note utilities are not included in the rental. I've found what guests use varies a lot, so to be fair and encourage respect for the environment, I add a separate charge, which will be included in what you are quoted, you pay for what you use at cost, and I refund the balance.
A Saturday start to the rental is preferred but please ask if this doesn't suit your needs.
