The property sits in truly enchanting gardens and is an oasis of charm enhanced by the sound of the babbling brook and resident songbirds. Views extend over these gardens, across the Charleton golf course and over the Firth of Forth to Berwick Law.

The accommodation is as restful as the location with comfortable open plan living and spacious bedroom facilities. Picture windows offer unrestricted views as an alternative to watching internet enabled smart TV from the reclining sofa. Free wifi is available.

Alternatively you can enjoy the very same seafood in some of the very best restaurants Scotland has to offer.

Doocot

  • 5 of 5

We have just got home after an amazing stay at Doocot. The cottage is very comfortable and clean and had everything you need for a short break. We loved the welcome pack, and also the fact that Elaine is around if you need anything but isn't 'in your face'!! Will definitely recommend this lovely cottage to friends and family

Beautiful spot in the East Neuk of Fife!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming spot for the holiday maker! It is comfortable and clean with all amenities of home. Thoughtful extras are included like the welcome pack received on your arrival. There are also other unexpected things like folding picnic chairs and umbrellas - not that we needed the umbrellas as the weather was kind to us.

Although the cottage is attached to the owners home, they go out of their way not to disturb you, a thoughtful touch from the owners though are very pleasant and helpful.

A charming spot and we look forward to our third stay.

Thank you Elaine.

Beautiful cottage, everything here that you could wish for was in the cottage, relaxing, peaceful, well maintained and absolutely clean, every little item provided and more for a self catering holiday absolutely amazing.

Elaine the owner welcomed us to her home and asked if we need anything, hardly. A welcome pack was left with eggs, milk, bread tea and coffee and also wine, WOW, . This place is the best. Elaine also informed us off local activities. We will back, I have already informed my friends and family. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED .

Ruhig und zentral

  • 4 of 5

Eine gemütlich kleine, saubere Ferienwohnung. Guter Ausgangspunkt zu vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten! Sitzgelgenheit vor dem Haus am angrenzenden großen Garten. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die freundliche, zurückhaltende Vermieterin hat uns mit vielen Kleinigkeiten verwöhnt (Kaffee, Tee, Milch...). Vielen Dank!
