Lovely location, homely home-away-from-home

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived late at night and didn't really get to see the house until the following morning, when we were very pleasantly surprised by the charming location - horses coming up to chat over the garden walls - the wonderful views from almost every window, and the general homey-ness of the house.
It has clearly been a much loved home and remains a haven, with unexpected nooks, a warm, sun filled conservatory and lovely large open rooms. It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week there, big enough to accommodate our extended family and guests with ease, and a lovely entertaining space also. We enjoyed early morning in the conservatory just as much as late night chats, and the facilities overall entirely met our needs (definitely got value from the dishwasher too!). The children were delighted by a selection of interesting toys and games, and the adults tucked into a wonderfully random collection of books.
The gardener and handyman was great in helping with a minor issue and very responsive. The bedrooms were charmingly accessorised and the house overall was very clean and welcoming.
It is a charming, tucked away location where there is a pervasive sense of peace and quiet which was a very much needed respite.
Having said that, it was also a great base to explore St Andrews and the surrounding countryside, the south west end of the national park, a long scenic drive across Clackmannon to Stirling and an easy drive to Edinburgh, with the local village only five minutes drive away for any essentials you may need.
We would highly recommend the house and would love to go back again.

Ideal location, characterful, warm, comfortable.

  • 5 out of 5
Our party of 6 – two grandparents, two parents and two children – found Bowhouse ideal for our week in Scotland. The weather was hot and sunny, and we were able to spend every day out and about in different places nearby, doing different activities, from nature parks and beaches to palaces and museums.

From the start we were impressed by the charmingly characterful Bowhouse, and especially with the style of the accommodation – the stylish bedrooms were just right for our needs, the large family bathroom ideal for fun bathtimes for the children, with plenty of hot water at all times, and the second bathroom was ideally placed and a real boon.

We loved the bright and warm conservatory, with its collection of intriguing family board games, and its views over the surrounding countryside.
Even with additional guests visiting during the day, there was ample seating in the large kitchen and in the dining room, sitting room and conservatory.
The kitchen has a 2 and a half sink – luxury! – and is very well stocked with kitchen paraphernalia.

Not only is there a wide range of activities available within easy reach – the Scottish Deer Centre, the beautiful East Neuk of Fife, St Andrews and much more - there is shopping of all kinds almost on your doorstep, from the Fife Retail Park just off the A92 ten minutes away, to Glenrothes less than 5 miles away.

We also loved the wide selection of books throughout the house, located at strategic points, and the intriguing collections of precious toys and memorabilia on display.

We really enjoyed the ambience of Bowhouse - many thanks for such a heart warming hub for our holiday.

Comfortable, Clean and homely

  • 5 out of 5
We spent two weeks in this delightful homely farmhouse (two adults, two teens). Within easy reach of Edinburgh we spent two days at the Fringe Festival with plenty of shopping and after much hustle & bustle it was a real treat to return to the tranquility of the farmhouse.
There is a shopping estate about 15 mins drive away which has a large supermarket and about 15 mins in the other direction we found a wonderful farm shop, with plenty of local Scottish goodies.
The farmhouse provided everything we needed from the facilities to eat in house if we wanted, to the clean homely comfort which was always lovely to come back to.
There are plenty of places to eat and some fab fish and chip shops in the lovely fishing harbours.
There is plenty to see and do and therefore we will most likely be looking to return in the late summer.

Fabulous home with traditional charm

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Bowhouse and felt right at home. The cottage
is very comfortabIe with a great charackter and you will find yourself in a
very relaxing and peaceful area. Our party consisted of four adults and one
two years old child, but it never felt crowded. Having breakfast and BBQs
almost every day while sitting in the sun on the lovely terrasse was also an
unexpected great pleasure during the lovely warm weather in July. Our son
very much enjoyed the big and well maintained garden.

Bowehouse is very well located as you will find a big retal park near by for
all your needs. The cottage is also a good home base to do day trips or
short term visits to many attractions like Falkland (Palace), St. Andrews
(Beach), Stirling, Loch Katrine and many more.

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to read reviews such as this, where the guests have obviously taken full advantage of the facilities offered by both the house and the location. It was my home for twenty years, and I appreciate all that it offers more and more every time that I return.

For shopping,In addition to the village of Kinglassie, Glenrothes is three miles away and, despite being in the heart of the country, Fife central retail park with supermarkets and other large stores also is three miles away. There is a wide range of restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets within easy reach.
