Very comfortable and well stocked cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at Ogilvy Cottage with our two dogs. It is surprisingly spacious and is well equipped. Having stayed in numerous holiday lets it has extremely comfortable beds!! The garden is secure and safe for the dogs. The location of the cottage is ideal with lots of great walks. The local Co-op is well stocked, although it does not sell The Times newspaper! However, The Times is sold in the Co-op and the Premier Shop on Castle Street. (I’m sad I know, but I’m retired!).

Our last week was during the “ Beast from the East” and we were unable to start our journey home because of the weather. Anne was very supportive and allowed us to stay on another day. Can’t wait until we are back again at the end of April.

quiet cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

had a lovely time in Tayport although was cold. From the cottage everything is in walking distance. It was nice and peace which I needed after recovering from a bad broken ankle.

The dog love chasing the birds every day and nosing at the gate watching people go by.

The local shops are good and Chinese good value for money

Cute and cosy

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the most comfortable few days at Ogilvy cottage.

It is a well planned updated 2 bedroomed cottage.

The downstairs bedroom has an en suite with superb walk in shower. The upstairs bedroom has a huge, comfortable bed with the upstairs separate bathroom with shower over the bath.

There are lovely lamps, pictures, ornaments, clocks, mirrors, cushions and throws everywhere.

The cottage is lovely and warm and has almost every piece of crockery, pan, cutlery & electric implement that you could need.

A kitchen table seats 4 easily. The sitting room has comfy seats and tv. Free WIfi too.

The garden is quite narrow- but long and you can get the sun for most of the day. Table and chairs provided outside.

Tayport is a lovely, small town with most essential shops, 2 pubs, lovely café at the harbour, dentist, school, doctor, library and plenty of buses to get about.

St Andrews and Perth are less than half an hour away and Tentismuir forest and beautiful beach less than 15 mins away. The area is great for golfers, fishermen,joggers and cyclists.

Anne, the owner is very helpful and quick to reply to E-mails and texts.

Ogilvy cottage is excellent value for the price and I would recommend it to anyone.

Ogilvie Cottage Recommended

  • 4 of 5

Charming terraced cottage with nice rear garden. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was cold when we were there and the log burner was real treat and the central heating was very efficient.

There is a small supermarket, Chinese takeaway and pub all within easy walking distance.

Great service and good communication from very pleasant owner.
