Amazing cottages in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

We rented all 3 cottages for a family get-together. The cottages have everything you need, very comfortable and clean. Everything was perfect - the swimming pool, games room & hot tub were amazing. There was a bottle of wine & milk in each fridge on arrival. Kate is really friendly and welcoming. The age range in our party was from 3 to 73 and everyone loved staying here. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return in the future.

Brilliant facilities and a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The Old Cart House is one of the best family holiday homes I have ever stayed in. The cottage is lovely, well furnished and there is a properly equipped kitchen, which is extremely useful and not to be taken for granted. The amenities were top quality with an extremely clean indoor swimming pool and spa. There is also a fabulous games room with a ping pong table and small pool table. My two children were in heaven! The surroundings are perfect, with forest walks all around but also very close to the village. There are loads of activities for families around Fife and we didn't have nearly enough time to do everything we wanted to do, although we really enjoyed trips to Falkland Castle and the Scottish Deer Centre which are both very close. We didn't try out the outdoor hot tub, but there is always next time!

There aren't enough adjectives to describe how wonderful Newhill Farms is. We stayed in the Old Horse Mill Cottage. It was beautifully furnish, very clean, and everything we needed for our stay. The grounds were beautiful and spectacular views out of every window. Lots of walking trails and centrally located for anyone playing golf or venturing out for some site seeing. The swimming pool, rec room and hot tubs were added bonuses. Kate and Ian were most gracious and wonderful host. Thank you for your hospitality and helping be apart of a dream come true. We will highly recommend Newhill Farms to anyone visiting Scotland.

Great stay in the countryside!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic! Set in a lovely rural location, making it the ideal place to get away from it all, yet a close enough distance to commute into Edinburgh. Clean, well-equipped, wonderful heated pool & spa, you really couldn't ask for more! This cottage has my highest recommendation!
