Location was excellent. Very comfortable residence and fantastically well equipped kitchen. Staff were very helpful and all communication was prompt. It’s an atmospheric place to stay with lots of steps up to the bedrooms which are tastefully restored. The main road is a tad noisy from around 5am on weekdays. – October 2020
A beautiful and quirky apartment with stunning decor and style, situated in the heart of Cupar. Very clean and comfortable, and very well-appointed. (Hint – take slippers or flipflops for wearing to walk up and down the old stone stairs between the floors! ) – September 2020
Really gorgeous place to stay in the centre of Cupar. 5 mins walk from train station or you can use the private car parking space nearby. You are surrounded by cafes, gift shops, restaurants, supermarkets, everything you could need. The main room is huge but still manages to be cosy, and feels grand without being imposing. It has a very well equipped kitchen and more than enough pans, dishes, glasses etc, all of a high standard. Everything, right down to the engraved slate coasters on the bedside tables, is fantastic quality throughout the apartment. The heating was really effective, lots of easily controllable radiators plus underfloor heating in the bathroom if you want it. The bed in the red room is enormous and super comfy. (Small note, when big trucks went past outside the bedside table nearest the door vibrated and rattled a bit, but leaving its door just open stopped it! 🙂) All in all, highly recommend you stay here, we really hope to go back again one day. It does have a LOT of stairs, that won’t stop us visiting again but is worth keeping in mind if you have any mobility issues or for children. And there was some road and street noise, not surprisingly for the location, but that didn’t go on too late into the evening and didn’t really bother us. It was worth it to be so central, and we still felt like we were in our own completely private space above the town. Perhaps more towels would be good, but we managed – and some shorter dram-sized glasses would’ve been nice, but then tall glasses just saved more trips away from the sofa to top up! Any negatives are far outweighed by the positives basically! – March 2020
A superb stay in a very unique and interesting restored building. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for a trip to Fife. Highly recommended. – December 2019
A wonderfully rehabbed and restored historic space, repurposed for daily living The flat was sparkling clean, had wonderful appliances and amenities. The hospitality basket was a welcome touch, and the fresh flowers in the window, fresh fruit in the dining table bowl, and milk in the fridge were manna from heaven. The showers were so very warm and inviting, and the flannel duvet comforting indeed. I booked this flat for my two university student children and myself for move-in weekend, and it was absurdly convenient for the purpose, and a relaxing spot to return to each evening. The Lidl and Tesco are quite convenient, as well, making daily life simple and easy. Thanks Beth and helpers for the warm welcome, comfortable and beautiful surroundings, and abundance of information!!! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. – September 2019
Gorgeous apartment with a separate living room on one floor and bedrooms upstairs. The living room is truly amazing! The host was very kind and helped us quickly when needed. The city is calm but only 12 minutes to ST. Andrews! A must! – September 2019
A beautifully presented and thoughtfully converted historic building centrally located in Cupar, which is on a main route to St. Andrews. It is clean and well provisioned. Our favourite part of being in the flat was sitting at the round table in the bay window to have breakfast and read the newspaper. It made it a bit like home! – July 2019
Amazing property. Such a wonderful find! Lovely property with so much character. The welcome basket was so appreciated after a long drive. Guest – June 2019;
Such a beautiful place in an historic building! Living room is huge with high ceilings and large windows and great views. Upstairs bedroom too! And you have the whole building to yourself! Everyone we communicated with was wonderful and so quick to respond. I must say, LOTS of stairs to manage on a daily (Website hidden by Airbnb) be prepared. We loved our stay here! – June 2019

This apartment is outstanding! It is a beautiful building and is fantastically kitted out with everything you need. It is in an excellent location, right in the centre of Cupar, you have everything you need on your doorstep! A fab rental! Thoroughly recommend. Guest May 2019;
Beautiful apartment in an ideal location. Fabulous historic apartment right in the centre of town overlooking the main streets. We were visiting our daughter at St Andrews University and this was a great location to allow us to do this and we also managed a visit to Edinburgh. We were staying over the Easter weekend and the Easter eggs in the hamper was a lovely touch. Our daughter still has 3 years to go at Uni and this place will definitely be on our favourites list whenever we need to visit. Guest – April 2019;
The apartment is exceptional. In a period building, the high ceilings, big windows and colour scheme makes it really stand out. Beth is really good with her comms and the little touches, such as bread, milk, soaps and not to mention the bottle of wine made us feel really welcome. I would definitely recommend this apartment and will use again if I am in the area. Thanks Beth and team. Guest August 2018;
Exceeded all expectations. Thank you Beth for a fantastic place to stay. It’s location is ideal for seeing so much on the east coast, close enough to get down to Edinburgh and see its sights and a stones throw from historic and beautiful St Andrews and Crail The accommodation exceeded all expectations and though the pictures are good they don’t do justice to the quality of the place and it’s quirky historic style The welcome hamper was lovely with great produce and you cater for every need we could have had and more!! Your welcome information book was great and gave insight to places to eat on the doorstep Overall could not fault and the best place of this type that have stayed – thank you 😊 Guest – August 2018;
Such a stylish and amazing space with practically every facility and item you’d need. Some great touches like the smart TV and an amazingly thoughtful welcome basket including Tunnocks tea cakes really made us feel welcomed. We love that this is a historic building and enjoyed the snapshots of the locations history. So good to know that our rental is preserving local history, a wonderful, smart and meaningful project. We hope it grows and prospers. And very comfy beds! Guest August 2018;
Quirky charm, clean and homely. Perfect stay over New Year with two families enjoying the huge space. Every need catered for, would definitely stay again. Thank you! – Guest December 2018;
