Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very well equipped cottage. Centrally located and right next door to an excellent hotel restaurant. Nov 2012.
  2. An ideally located cottage for journeys to all the well known holiday spots in Fife. Also a warm welcome guaranteed from the owners. May 2012.
  3. This was a beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. The owners made us so welcome. Hoping to go back for a longer stay. Sept 2011.
  4. Warmly welcomed to the cottage - even treated to a bottle of wine. House was ideal for our purpose with en-suite facilities in both bedrooms. The location of the cottage was excellent for visiting St Andrews and many villages on the coast of Fife. It was also a bonus that there were no stairs or steps. June2011.
  5. Great welcome and cottage better than the pictures on site. Area nice and quiet apart from morning traffic of workers and school kids. Locals very pleasant. We picked the week with the winds and rain but still managed to have great time. The hotel next door is good for dinner when too tired to cook. St Andrews and Anstuther both within easy reach and are not to be missed. Coupar is a few minutes away for shopping but local shop is handy too. May 2011.
  6. Lovely cottage in a great village setting with good dog walks on the doorstep. Easy access to the coast and sites around the area. Very helpful, friendly owners. April 2011.
  7. The four of us had an excellent time seeing the sights around Fife. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the Local pub was 100m away and served delicious food and ales. March 2011.
  8. Delighted with our accommodation and with the high standard of facilities within the cottage. Owners were most helpful and the village itself is a delight. March 2011.
  9. We were looking for a cosy retreat and Kirkbank Cottage fitted the bill perfectly - comfortable and well equipped. We would definitely go back. Nov 2010.

  11. Situation good for touring, every need in the cottage catered for. July 2010.
  12. This is a very homely cottage and is very well maintained by the owners. Guests are made to feel very welcome and nothing is a bother to Anne and Grant. The village itself is just lovely and well looked after. June 2010.
  13. Good sized accommodation and facilities. Excellent sun trap in the garden if the weather is good. Both bedrooms are en-suite which is means no queues! May 2010.

  19. The owners gave such a personal service and left gift for us- making us feel very special. The property was extremely spacious and spotlessly clean, It felt like a real home not a holiday cottage and was amazingly well stocked with everything possible - even books, games, binoculars etc. It exceeded our expectations. Oct 2009.
  20. Welcome pack, wine, flowers jam and sweets made us feel very at home. Having separate bathroom/ en-suite as we usually holiday with our neighbours and this level of privacy helps us all feel at ease within the property. Oct 2009.
