Set in Scotland in the Fife countryside, just 10 miles from St Andrews and 5 miles from Dundee, Sandford Country Cottages are luxury self-catering cottages which are part of Sandford House, a 'B' Listed Arts and Crafts House designed by Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott around 1902.
The cottages have been restored with Arts and Crafts features such as oak beams and posts. Two and three bedroom properties are available and all bedrooms are en-suite, with either a bath or a walk-in shower, both are fitted with Trevi rainwater showers.
In the living areas you'll find spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining rooms with oak beams and posts, comfy seating and a dining table and chairs. There is also a flat screen TV and an iPod dock. The kitchens are fully fitted with modern appliances.
All properties have oil central heating and a wood burning stove. Electricity, heating and one basket of logs is included in the rental cost, additional logs can be purchased from the office. WiFi is free.
Valentine's Cottage was exactly as pictured on the website, clean, comfortable, furnished to a high standard, in fact everything was excellent and I would recommend this cottage for a short or long stay. The food basket was most welcome and the additional fruit basket perfect.
The location is good located on a quiet hillside, although close a main road. We travelled extensively while staying at the cottage and found the location perfect.
If you are looking for five star accommodation in a central location this is the place to stay.
This is the third visit for us, we keep coming back because the accommodation is superb as is the customer service. This year we stayed in Lady Bluebell and we were not at all surprised to find it at the same beautiful standard as Valentines Cottage. I have no doubt we will book for next year too. Lots of things to do locally and Eden Mill distillery is well worth a visit - the gin tour was particularly good (get a taxi!! - four full measures of gin on the tour).
Regular visitors to Scotland, always staying in self-catering accommodation.
Baillie Scott Cottage was best ever holiday home. Highest standard in terms of building, space and facilities.
Evelyn & Ralph were excellent hosts throughout our stay. Appreciated guided tour of the refurbished Sandford House.
Location ideal for visiting Fife and beyond, plus rail links nearby to Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
We will be back.
