    • “A quiet peaceful cottage with good accessibility to various attractions and sights. Warm and well equipped cottage, very nice!”

    Miss Balchin, Bristol, January 2015

    • “A superbly comfortable & well equipped cottage in beautiful surroundings.”

    Mr Livingstone, Maidstone, December 2014

    • “The cottage was extremely comfortable in all respects; very clean, very well stocked in the way of kitchen utensils and very warm.”

    Mr Lackford, Fareham, December 2014

    • “A lovely, homely property, very comfortable and cosy. Fantastic location - remote enough so that no street lights were visible from the cottage at all which meant we had excellent stargazing from the back garden - but also just 10mins drive from Dundee, St Andrews etc. We also enjoyed the hamper of games in the living room!”

    Mrs Gonzalez, Haddington, November 2014

    • “The cottage was very warm and comfortable. In a good location with lovely views and was very peaceful & relaxing. A very enjoyable holiday.”

    Mrs Bleasdale, Lytham St. Annes, October 2014

    • “Very nice and comfortable cottage, would love to go there again! Very good value for your money! It was very complete! We felt at home straight away. Also enough wood for the fireplace, they thought of everything!”

    Mr Visser, Beverwijk, October 2014

    • “I found the cottage very comfortable and well looked after. I was also impressed with the amount of crockery and utensils in this property, it was far the best more than other cottages I have been to in the past. The location was excellent handy to reach all areas of interest. A very enjoyable break in the countryside.”

    Mrs Dove, Norwich, October 2014

    • “This is our second trip to the Cottage and we love the relaxed atmosphere, countryside situation, peace and quiet yet not too far from villages and towns in the local area. Driving into the town of Dundee over the river Tay with its magnificent views was a stunning site to see. The town had lots of interesting things to see and do. Driving further up the coast it had beautiful beaches and wonderful countryside. Couldn't ask for more.”

    Mrs Norton, Colchester, July 2014

    • “Excellent value for money with no extras as electric and heating all included. Cosy and warm with a lovely atmosphere.”

    Mrs Morgan, Swansea, April 2014

About the location


St Andrews 10 miles; Carnoustie 13 miles; Perth 24 miles.

The coastal town of Newport-on-Tay was originally developed in the 12th century as part of a ferry crossing to Dundee. A new harbour was built in the 1820s by Thomas Telford and the town developed as a fashionable commuter suburb of Dundee. Also archaeological excavations in the town have uncovered a Bronze Age cemetery dating from around 1700 to 2000 BC. The Fife Coastal Path running from the Forth Estuary in the south, to the Tay Estuary in the north and stretching for 117 miles passes through Newport-on-Tay, plus the attractive open farmland makes this part of Fife particularly attractive. Visit Cupar and the pretty village of Leuchars, or take in the air show at the nearby RAF base. This is an ideal location for golfing enthusiasts as Carnoustie and St Andrews are only short drives away. This part of Scotland has some truly spectacular stretches of coastline with Tentsmuir Forest and National Nature Reserve covering some 50 square miles, the St Andrews beach itself and, slightly further south, the beach at Kingsbarns, are all worth a visit.
