We enjoyed an incredible few nights here. The arrival was efficient and the house was warm with goodies left out for us. The cottage was very clean and beautifully presented with everything we needed and the hosts really kind and helpful. We slept well (very comfy beds) and it was exceedingly peaceful. Great parking and good for exploring the surrounding area and St Andrews. Recommend this place massively, nicest holiday cottage we have been to in a long time.

What a wonderful environment to spend some quality peaceful time away from the hustle and bustle of life. Very very peaceful but reassuringly close to St Andrews.

Welcome to Tranquility

We would love to welcome you to either of our cottages which we converted in 2017 from our 200 year old Cart Shed.

Braeview (on the left) is an open plan studio style cottage with a kingsize bed and bathroom on the mezzanine floor.

Eastburn is a two bedroom cottage with a king size master bedroom  (en suite) and a second bedroom which contains a triple sleeper (a double bed below and a single bed above) and a separate bathroom. 

Both cottages have open plan kitchen, dining and living areas with smart TV and Wifi and are heated using environmentally friendly Air Source Heat Pumps and the option to use the log burners for those colder winter evenings.

We are 6 miles south west of St Andrews, an hour's drive from Edinburgh Airport and 15 minutes from the main line station at Leuchars.  The farm is at the end of 400 metres of track off the B941 - it’s beautifully quiet with calming countryside views and our fields that usually contain sheep.  Spring is a wonderful time with lambing.

It’s a short 10 to 15 minute drive into St Andrews with access to a large supermarket, wonderful restaurants and bars, the many golf courses that constitute St Andrews Links Trust and, of course, the spectacular East and West Sands beaches.  The heritage within the town is spectacular and readily accessible - check out the tunnels under St Andrews Castle!

There's heaps to do with easy access to loads of beaches, golf courses and beautiful scenery including the Lomond Hills which are about a 20 minute drive west.   The Victoria and Albert Museum in Dundee opened in September 2018.  We are a 10 minute walk from the widely acclaimed and Michelin starred The Peat Inn Restaurant if you really feel like spoiling yourselves, but do make sure you book your table well in advance.

You will have access to a shared laundry facility together with a large fridge/freezer and storage for golf clubs, surf boards, bikes and so on. 

The routes available to road bikers are truly phenomenal - just one of the many reasons for us deciding to put down roots here in 2013.  The proximity to so many wonderful fishing villages; the beaches; the unusually good weather (by UK and Scottish standards) and the wonderful atmosphere in St Andrews and across the East Neuk of Fife made the decision simple!

Sophie, Nick, Tom, Ed and William have all played parts in converting a modest smallholding into a truly welcoming location - and we have plans to potentially expand in the future.

Some reviews from our Airbnb Guests:

‘We stayed at the Braeview Cottage for 5 days in February. It was utterly delightful. Perfect for us. The wee cottage is sparklingly clean and welcoming. Even on a very cold day it is warm and cosy in the most peaceful surroundings. The views from the French windows (onto the patio) are just wonderful, with fields, hillsides, sheep and trees-- marvellous countryside. The décor in the cottage is very tasteful and modern. We had the most enjoyable holiday and at the end of each busy day it was a joy to return to this superbly equipped accommodation. We hope to return in the Autumn. Congratulations Nick and Sophie -- great wee cottage.!!!!!!’ Collette and Graham, February 2019 


'My wife and I had a brilliant stay. Nick and Sophie are very friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage is just beautiful, and in a picturesque location. The cottage is extremely well finished and very well maintained'  Andrew, September 2018 


Great cottage in a gorgeous rural seating but only 10 minutes’ drive from St Andrews. The cottage is tastefully decorated to a high standard with everything you could need. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this cottage for couples looking for a stay near St Andrews'  Carolyn, August 2018 


'We loved our stay at Sophie and Nick’s. It’s a shame it couldn’t last longer. The accommodation is beautiful and the surroundings of the farm were wonderful too. I would highly recommend and would love to stay again'  Sarah, July 2018 


'We booked the cottage mainly to visit the Open Championship, and we loved it from the very first moment! Lovely interior, very cosy and just perfect for the four of us. Our boys slept well in their double bed in a small but fine sleeping room and so did we in our master bedroom next door. It is just everything there, terrace for summerly weather that we had and also a wood stove for a rainy day - we did not use it! The descriptions of Sophie and Nick are so detailed and the communication fast, that we just found everything! We were just running out of time to discover more of the Scottish East Coast and decided to do that next time! Thanks much again! ' Martin, July 2018 


'Sophie and Nick are fantastic hosts and have a lovely place to stay. The cottage/coach house combines beautiful tradition design with a stunning modern interior. I was looking for a private place to relax outside the town and this provides exactly that. In terms of service, Sophie and Nick were there to very quickly answer my every question and request. Fab experience!'  Jordan, June 2018 


'A great place to stay if travelling the Fife area. We ventured to several villages and the drive never seemed far. We had the pleasure of being greeted at arrival by Sophie, then appropriately left to ourselves to enjoy our time. The onsite laundry was a big bonus, and the peace and quiet of the country was relaxing. We also liked the layout of the space and special touches like games, blankets, movies - felt very much like a home. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it'  Tara, June 2018 


'We spent a lovely weekend at this gorgeous cottage, the décor is beautiful, modern but cosy. We were greeted with a bottle of fizz which was a thoughtful extra touch we really appreciated. The cottage was spotless with everything you could need for weekend away, cosy blankets, tea and coffee and even milk sachets not forgetting the swing seat where we sat in the sun enjoying our bottle of fizz. We would love to return maybe at new year with kids and spend it in the two bedroom cottage next door which Nick was happy to give us a tour of.  Loved it all!'  Careen, June 2018


'In our view, Nick and Sophie’s place is top notch. It is off the beaten path, on a working farm with great views and exquisite rustic charm on the outside, with perfect modern charms on the inside. The kitchen and baths are upgraded, there is a cosy wood burning stove in the den, and the beds are super comfy!' Brandon, May 2018 'Braeside Farm is spectacular. The unit is amazing and location perfect. Plan to stay longer than you thought' Craig, May 2018


'Beautiful cottage which exceeded all our expectations. Peaceful getaway with glorious views of countryside and farmland. Location was fantastic being a short drive to St Andrews, award-winning beaches & quaint villages. Hosts were extremely welcoming and kept us up to date with local events. The cottage was converted to a top quality standard and had everything one could ask for and more. Will definitely be going back this year and hopefully stay a little longer. Wishing them all the best in their new project and grateful for making my birthday weekend away something I will never forget' Fran, April 2018 


'Just back from a lovely, relaxing stay at Braeview Cottage. Sophie and Nick were very welcoming and friendly! The cottage is spotlessly clean and has everything you need. The view from the patio doors is stunning. Would highly recommend to anyone! We will definitely return when back in the area' Stephen, April 2018


'Braeview Cottage is a perfect getaway in a beautiful part of Scotland. They are carefully equipped and furnished and lovingly decorated. Everything we needed for a 5 day vacation was provided and Sophie and Nick even organized extra stuff for our 1 year old. In general, Sophie and Nick were brilliant hosts helping out if needed and always quick to respond. The surroundings are calm and rural and perfect for hikes and enjoying Scottish nature. We very much look forward to returning to Braeview! Clemens, March 2018
