The Garden Cottage was an excellent base for us to explore the area - my wife didn't want to leave. When we arrived, there were fresh flowers in 2 of the rooms, food in the fridge, sweet treats, fruit, a freshly-baked loaf of bread, and a bottle of Prosecco to help us bring in the New Year. The cottage is relatively secluded but you can still walk into Cupar, the nearest town, in around 10-15 minutes (take a torch). St Andrews is about a 20 minute drive away. The accommodation was clean with plenty of cooking utensils, storage, towels, bedding and even a piano in the large dining room if you have any musical talent. There were also loads of books and DVDs in the comfortable living room. Our 5 year old loved playing hide-and-seek and exploring the many passageways and hiding places in the cottage. She also enjoyed looking up at the stars before bedtime and even spotted a shooting star through the skylight window on our last night. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend this cottage if visiting the area.
