Charming peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this lovely property . It was peaceful despite its proximity to the bridge and the views are just astonishing day and night and in good and stormy weather. Beds and bedding gave all of us a hint of luxury and a good nights sleep. The welcome package was more than anyone could hope for, thankyou so much for being perfect hosts. The appartment is ideal for visiting this area of Scotland and we spent time in Edinburgh, Stirling, St Andrews, Dundee and Aberdeen as well as many small villages. We just loved the property and would return in a blink of an eye.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Robert and Susan were such gracious hosts and their apartment was very comfortable and welcoming. They went above and beyond to help us find our way around and to ensure that we had a great experience for which we are forever grateful.

The views of the river, bridge, and sunsets from the apartment were spectacular and the walk into town along the water was beautiful.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Saint Andrew's area.

Newport-on-Tay lies in North Fife and enjoys breathtaking views over the Tay Estuary to Dundee. It was from here that the Tay Ferries ran, taking vehicles and passengers to Dundee. A ferry service has been in this area for centuries.

So why should you stay at the Braemore Apartment in Newport-on-Tay ?

Firstly Newport is a lovely old Victorian town with fabulous views over the estuary but with a village feel about it. One of the best reasons for staying here is our location. The town is coastal and rural yet only 1.5 miles from a City Centre over the Tay Road Bridge which can also be used by pedestrians and cyclists. We are therefore well placed for the two Universities in Dundee and St Andrews University is only 15 minutes by car. If you are a golfer then there are over 50 courses within about 30 minutes drive including the Old Course at St Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie. The qualifying courses at St Michaels and Tayport are just a few minutes away.

There is a bus stop about 200 meters from the apartment on Tay St with regular buses running over to Dundee and the local railway stations at Dundee and Leuchars are 2 miles and 5 miles distant and we can collect you and drop you off if required. Both stations are on the main London-Edinburgh-Aberdeen railway lines

The village shops are less than a kilometer away and there you will find amongst others, a Post Office, a very good Butcher, 3 coffee shops/cafe's, a florist, a Fish and Chip Shop, 2 Convenience Stores, 2 Cash Machines and a Hairdresser. There are also a couple of pubs and a good restaurant in nearby Wormit. If you need to do a 'big' shop then there is a major supermarket about 7 minutes drive by car over in Dundee.

Secondly, the apartment enjoys breathtaking views from both bedrooms over the Tay Estuary to Dundee and a host of wildlife can be enjoyed from your window including seabirds, seals and dolphins. Birds of all kinds abound including Sea Eagles from time to time.

Finally the apartment comes with a 4 Star rating from Visit Scotland and at 75 square meters it is more spacious than the average and thus extremely good value for money.
