Cupar Burgh Chambers Open for Holiday Bookings

Cupar Burgh Chambers Open for Holiday Bookings

Fife Historic Buildings Trust is delighted to announce Cupar Burgh Chambers open for Holiday Bookings. It has been a long journey to get to the completed stage but we are all thrilled with the end result. Furniture and furnishings are in place and we now have some beautiful professional photographs of the self-catering apartment. Our first guests arrived in July and enjoyed their stay, giving us a Highly Recommended review and commenting on the space and period features. The fundraising for this building began in 2010, working with Fife Council who own the building, and it is incredible to see the difference in the property from when the project first began. Cupar Burgh Chambers, is owned by Fife Council but from July 2018 Fife Historic Buildings Trust will take over the management of the building. Fife Historic Buildings Trust would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has been involved in the process.

Cupar Burgh Chambers is available to book directly either by email or online as well as through various booking portals. The portals we use are Homeaway, Holidaylettings, Embrace Scotland and AirBnB.
