Leuchars, St Andrews, Fife, Scotland
No 6 Pitlethie Steading is a luxury holiday home, beautifully furnished throughout offering bright, airy and modern living areas and 2 very comfortable bedrooms (one with a king size bed and the other can be set up as either a twin or super king bed). The spotlessly clean property has a beautiful corner setting with its own large garden which enjoys lovely views over farmland and quiet countryside - an ideal place for relaxing with a good book in one hand and a glass of wine in the with other!

An excellent base to explore the Kingdom ofFife. The cottage has a super outside space to sit and enjoy the sunsets and is handy for St Andrews. Inside the quality of the fittings and furnishings is high and the welcome basket was very generous. My family and I will return in future.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to review our holiday cottage. We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed our holiday home and we look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future. Best wishes Eleanor & Keith

About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is in the beautiful Kingdom of Fife with so many things to see and do for all ages. The area is perfect for sightseeing with St Andrews less than a 10 minutes drive away with its famous golf courses, historical castle, cathedral ruins and harbour area. It has great specialty shops, bars and restaurants, parks and beaches. The area is a golfer's paradise with 3 local courses and 30 others within a short drive. Tentsmuir Forest provides beautiful walks, cycle paths, bird wild life sanctuary, horse riding, bbq picnic area and white sandy beach all within a 10 minute drive. The nearby East Fife Coastal Path is perfect for keen walkers and cyclists alike.
Getting around
A car is ideal if you want to visit lots of different places, however, Leachers station is on the main London - Edinburgh - Aberdeen route, taxis are available at the station which is less than 5 mins drive from the cottage. Great public transport from Leuchars village to Dundee and the north, or to St Andrews and beyond to the quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife.
Car not needed
