4th comment: This is such a characterful property! We love the fact that it is not too co-ordinated, and that the floorboards creak here and there! The quirky bathroom is a lovely touch too. Add all that to the delightful location and the friendly owners and its a great combo! April 2011.

15th Comment The property is beautiful and very warm once the wood burning stove is going. Everything was ready for us when we arrived, all the lights were on welcoming us and the fire had the logs in ready to be lit, and heating was also on. Everything a cottage should be and more. Oct 2009.
16th Comment Beautiful and interesting cottage which exceeded all our expectations - we had a fantastic week walking the Fife Coastal path and the Granary proved a wonderful retreat to return to. May 2009.
17th Comment The Granary was really cosy, warm and welcoming. Many personal touches that made it feel homely. We would be happy to return. Oct 2008.
18th Comment We’ve enjoyed the privacy. The cottage provided everything we needed and the owners were most kind in not disturbing us what-so-ever, although they stressed they are just a few steps away in case we needed anything. The owners were also most kind in allowing us plenty of wood to use in the solid fuel burner. Even though the owners were away when we arrived, they made sure that somebody would provide access for us and we were pleasantly surprised to find the property warmed up for our arrival. We would recommend this cottage whole heartedly! March 2008.
19th Comment This property is ideal for people looking for peace and relaxation. Very atmospheric and marvellous position for walking on the coastal walks. June 2008.
20th Comment The accommodation was wonderful. The minute we arrived and went through the door we were delighted. So many places I’ve been to before don’t look anything like they’ve been described. Great place, very relaxing and even though the weather wasn’t that great, we just loved it. The fact that we could bring our wee dog was lovely too. We’ll definitely be back. June 2007.
