                                      Lovely second stay at a home away from home

                                      5 of 5
                                      We so enjoyed our first stay at Bow House that our children insisted on going back, and we had an even lovelier stay the second time. Our first time was a brightly sunny week, but our second was a much more typical Scottish summer, with some sun, some rain, lots of wonderful fresh air and the most fantastic walks by the coast. We used the facilities at Bow House much more as a result, and it was such a relief to be able to wash and dry our wet things, stay cuddled up inside with the great toys and diversions of an evening if we wanted, and nip out to the cinema in Dunfermline so easily. It was great to feel at home so quickly, and the kids kept asking when we were heading home again to Bow House after a day out and about castle exploring. St Andrews was a good day out again, and the seaside was absolutely amazing. There are a dozen wonderful visits to do in the near area, good for almost anything you would want, from bird watching and walking, to Loch Leven and Scone Castle, shooting and horse riding, and of course St Andrews itself. Our children are already asking us when we are going again and the charm of Bow House is exerting a strong pull on us too. We won't try very hard to resist it!

                                      Beautiful flat in a great location

                                      5 of 5
                                      We have just returned home after a few days in Aberdour. The house is lovely & spacious. Especially the kitchen, oh I loved that kitchen!! Lol. It's very well equipped & has everything we could have asked for. The purple shop is only 2 minutes away if you need anything. The flat is in a great location for the beach, the train station & the Fife coastal walks. Lindsay was very helpful throughout. I'd highly recommend this property. We had a lovely time. Thank you for having us. Anne, Millar & poppy the spaniel
