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;
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;
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;
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;
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! Guest July 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;
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;
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;
