Lovely location about 2 miles outside the town on the road to Anstruther. We had a bit of a challenge finding the place because when we called for directions nobody was answering the phone. Room was pleasant though it smelled of a little too much air freshener. Breakfast very nice. Owners very pleasant and professional.

Arrived for early check in which was really appreciated - the room had been cleaned in time for us arriving. Room was airy and tidy; could've been doing with a more thorough clean as things were a little dusty! Location is pretty good (peaceful) and relatively easy to find; but you can't walk anywhere. A taxi will be required but...

We stayed in the railway Carriage for the weekend and it was amazing. we hired the whole thing, and were able to take the dog with us. Colin was very welcoming, and gave us lots of advice about what to do and where to go. Nothing was too much trouble. The carriage was warm and had excellent facilities, although there...

My husband and I stayed in one of the lovely carriages. We loved how cosy it was and it was really clean and you could tell had been freshly painted. We had a great view whilst eating our breakfast the next morning. A beautiful unique place to stay with lovely owners and we most definitely be back.

Room exceptionally clean and airy, very pleasant to stay in. Sadly not able to stay in the train carriage in the garden. Enjoyed seeing a red squirrel from the breakfast conservatory. A little disappointed that, apart from the railway carriage, nothing was made of the 'Old Station' - would have been fascinated to have seen old pictures, memorabilia, stories.

The train carriage has accommodation for two couples in it. We stayed in the back carriage and really enjoyed it. It was well heated, clean and the bed was large. The breakfast was good and the owner very personable. Close to St. Andrews, but in a quiet countryside location. No wifi in room, but wifi available for free in lounge...

Fiona greeted us after our long drive over the highland countryside from Nairn. We stayed two nights in the Africa Room and enjoyed an inexpensive (and quick) Taxi ride to town (drink/drive laws in Scotland are unforgiving, as they should be). Colin whipped up a delightful Scottish breakfast for us and booked us a tee time at the Fairmont...one of...

Gorgeous location, in a quiet and peaceful spot, just outside St. Andrews, which can be easily reached by car (3 minutes). Rooms are very nice (price is reasonable and fair for such a place) and breakfast is excellent. For a different and old-fashioned experience, we recommend the two suites built in an old train wagon parked in the garden. We...
