“Exceptional and unique 5 star holiday cottage in scenic Fife”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Baillie Scott Cottage luxury holiday house is a wonderfully restored, luxury Arts and Crafts-style cottage in the wing of Sandford House, an impressive B-listed Baille Scott designed house in the heart of Fife, close to both Dundee and St Andrews.

This stylish two-bedroom cottage is packed full of character. The owners, Evelyn and Ralph, have made a fantastic job of the Art and Crafts inspired refurbishment. The conversion boasts (along with its sister cottage next door), oak beams and posts, leaded windows and William Morris wallpaper.

Its a brilliant place to stay and the friendly owners go out of their way to welcome you.
It has an exceptional location within Sandford House. Built around a courtyard with its original arts and crafts tiled well, the setting is peaceful and the perfect place to retreat to after a day exploring the beaches of Fife, St Andrews golfing or shopping in Dundee.

“Excellent Cottage”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Evelyn and Ralph made a perfect cottage in a beautiful surrounding very near Dundee and St. Andrews. The house is brand-new. It's spacious, lovely decorated and everything you can possible imagine is there. Evelyn and Ralph are good hosts and served us the best welcome basket we have ever seen.

“Magical and Inspiring!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The house is wonderfully equipped with such thoughtfulness as to the comfort of their guests. A well-equipped kitchen, top-notch bed linen and towels, you couldn't really ask for more. The setting is idyllic, with great views across the beautiful Scottish countryside. Evelyn and Ralph are wonderful hosts and their passion for conservation has restored a jewel to it's glory. They were so helpful with local information, lovely just to chat to and even gave tractor rides to the kids! We will definitely be back and couldn't recommend it more.

“An architectural jewel with great comfort and excellent hosts”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

One week in the sensitive renovated Baillie Scott Architecture in a great ambience. We experienced every day the fantastic feeling for Arts & Crafts details by our hosts, Evelyn and Ralph. By the way they both are fully engaged in this wonderful place and gave us the feeling of being home.
The house is situated just a 15min drive to St.Andrews and it's attractive surroundings. It's quiet with wonderful views. The service and facilities met all our expectations to their biggest extent.
Awesome! Thank you so much Evelyn and Ralph for making your dream come true!
