Sleeps 8-10 A fabulous farmhouse set in an elevated position in the heart of the St Andrews countryside looking down to the East Neuk coastline (only 5 minutes drive). With some of the most amazing views this is an absolute gem of a house. Enjoy glorious outlook across the fields, see the changing seasons and the changing landscape. This spacious property is great for either families or groups of friends to get away from it all and enjoy the rural lifestyle. Set on the only "Cheese Farm" in Fife, you can also take advantage of the excellent Farmshop cafe which is less than 2 minutes walk from the house.

This stunning farmhouse with great facilities is only 15 minutes drive to St Andrews, making it the perfect holiday home from which to enjoy the beautiful countryside of the East Neuk of Fife and its many attractions.
On arrival at the Farm, the Farmhouse is located in its own grounds with fabulous views over the Fife countryside down to the coastline. It has a beautiful, well-maintained garden which surrounds the house on 3 sides and the prospect from the front of the house down towards the coastline is almost entirely uninterrupted. Simply breathtaking.

Tucked into a corner of the east coast of Scotland between St Andrews and Edinburgh, the East Neuk of Fife is one of Scotland's most beautiful regions. It has a character all its own, attracting artists by the thousands to its unique combination of history, sea, farmland and beaches, its picturesque fishing villages with their Dutch-style houses and its world famous golf courses. There is so much to do here for the whole family, from kayaking to horseriding, and yet there is great peace here too. In the summer, flowers line the hedgerows and the fields are rich with crops while fishing boats bob in the sea. It's a perfect place to relax, to eat well, and to recharge the batteries. Eight coastal villages comprise the East Neuk - each with its own special character.

St Andrews Farmhouse is just 5 minutes drive from the pretty village of Pittenweem. Pittenweem - its name is Gaelic for 'place of the cave' - is a working fishing port, its busy harbour being the main landing point for the daily catch. It is a small village of some 1500 inhabitants, with a history not just of fishing and trading but of art too. In August over 100 artists exhibit at the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival and over 30 artists make their permanent home here. The village is blissfully situated, white houses with red pantiled roofs tumbling down to harbour and spreading up and beyond to the fields above. It is situated between Anstruther with its bustling harbour, the Fisheries Museum, supermarkets, various shops and renowned restaurants and the quieter village of St Monans, home to an excellent fish restaurant.

Pittenweem is a very well stocked village with a butchers, bakers, chemists, hairdresser, fish and chips shop (many think it's the best on the coast), a few pubs, the wonderful Cocoa Tree chocolate and teashop, the Heron bistro on the High Street, and the new Pittenweem Inn on the outskirts. This is a haven for art lovers, for foodies, and for those who simply want to enjoy the unique atmosphere of an historic village - you can still visit the cave that once housed a hermit and gave the village its name. This area is particularly attractive to golfers of course - there are some wonderful courses within half an hour: Anstruther (1 miles away, its club house provides an excellent lunch), Balcomie Links at Crail, Elie, Balbirnie Park, Kingsbarns, Scotscraig, Charleton, Lundin Links and Carnoustie (where the 2007 Open took place) and of course there is St Andrews, just 15 minutes away.

There are 7 fabulous golf courses within St Andrews. And even if you aren't a golf-lover, It is a town designed for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore – on foot – and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find. There are some ancient historic buildings to explore (the Castle and Cathedral are must-sees), museums (including the British Golf Museum), as well as the stunning beaches with all they have to offer and the pier - spectacular for a walk at sunset.
