“Just amazing!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I booked both the cottages for our family and granny and grandad and other gran after a tough last year for all. The 16year old and 2 year old absolutely lived in the pool, whilst the grans enjoyed the jacuzzi. The sun shined over the lovely views but even if it hadn't the pool and games room and great cottages would have been enough. A lovely part of the world and the nearby Falkland is a lovely place to go to for lunch and shopping too.

“Fantastic cottage, very cosy, well equiped and lovely pool”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed here in October half term, 2 adults, 2 children and a baby.
Fantastic cottage, had everything you could ever need and very cosy, Plenty space and very clean. Plenty to do in the area as well, our favourite was a loch near by with lots of hungry duck to feed. It was also great to have the pool and hot tub and great games room. The owners were very friendly and helpfull

“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed 11 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We've stayed at this cottage a few times, and it never disappoints. The cottage itself is fantastic, with everything in it that we could possibly need. It's all clean and the owners really have thought of everything. The swimming pool is fantastic - our children (aged 13 and 9) loved it, swimming at least twice a day. The games room was great fun - especially the table tennis - we didn't really use the gym but the equipment looked good. Our dog loved walking in the hills/woods behind the cottage. Holidaying here can be as energetic or as relaxed as you choose - there are plenty of places for a day out (Cupar, St Andrews, Elie, Anstruther to name a few) but there's also plenty to keep you occupied at the cottage itself if the weather's not playing ball. The surrounding countryside is stunning so it's also great to spend a bit of time just soaking up the peace and quiet!

“Wonderful cottage, Just perfect!”
Reviewed 22 October 2012 for a stay in December 2011

I'm a little late reviewing the cottage, but have just been reminiscing about what a great time we had and decided to pop up a review.

Simply put, everything was perfect.

My partner and I booked 3 nights last December here, we arrived quite late in the evening and were greeted by the owner and given a whirlwind tour of the stunning facilities.

The cottage itself was immaculately clean with some really nice touches like a basket of firewood and some essentials left to welcome us. Cosy and comfortable we quickly settled in and felt at home and enjoyed possibly the most relaxing holiday I have ever been on.

The pool and jacuzzi bath with lovely views over the country side were an amazing addition to this romantic get away spot.

I think this is perfect for a romantic break like we had. However, also recognise it could be an ideal spot for a family holiday.

I very much look forward to returning to the cottage and am glad to report it is every bit as wonderful as it looks on paper.

“Fabulous cottage”
Reviewed 19 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We had a wonderful stay at The Old Cart House. It is, without doubt, the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in, the owners have thought of simply everything. We experienced 2 seasons in one week during our stay (April). One day spent on the lovely beach at Elie enjoying the sunshine, the next day everywhere carpeted in snow (it looked beautiful nontheless). Inclement weather just gave us an excuse to spend more time in the pool and hot tub, the children loved it. We had very enjoyable days in St. Andrews and Edinburgh both within easy driving distance from Auchtermuchty. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.
