The property

Situated on the Scenic Perth Coastal Route between Balmerino and Newburgh in Fife, Balhelvie Farm Cottage is set in a fantastic rural location with spectacular uninterrupted views over the River Tay and the Sidlaw Hills to the North.

This is a perfect retreat for celebrations or getaways for your whole family or with friends.

The main lounge and adjoining sun lounge are the main focal point of the cottage and offer amazing views of the River Tay and the surrounding countryside. To the rear of the property there is ample space for everyone to enjoy, with a good, well maintained garden and patio, garden furniture offering great al fresco dining with views to open farmland.

Stroll along the hallway and enter the sitting room, a glorious space filled with lemon yellow colourways and a collection of contemporary seating positioned around an idyllic woodburning stove.

This room forms an open-plan layout with the conservatory, showcasing fabulous views out across the verdant fields stretching beyond the horizon.

Just off from the lounge takes you through to the kitchen, where you’ll find your welcome pack picnic basket with local produce to get your holiday off to the ideal start.

Perfectly lined around the dining table are a set of integrated fixtures, enhanced by a quirky wallpaper design and a modern finish.

Next you will find the bedrooms; a king-size which can be made into two single beds with the zip/link function, and a set of twins ready made up.

Both are stylishly done with thoughtful, personal touches and fresh colour schemes; the family bathroom serves the two, completing this cottage with exceptional presentation.

The region offers much to see and do and the cottage offers the ideal base to explore the surrounding area.

About the location


St. Andrews 20.1 miles; Cupar 10.5 miles

The royal burgh and parish of Fife is an agricultural community positioned alongside the salmon fishing waters of the River Tay, overlooking the marshy Mugdrum Island. To the east lies the ancient Lindores Abbey, a historical and overgrown ruin left to be uncovered. There are plenty of attractions nearby such as, the Lindores Abbey Distillery for whisky lovers, the National Trust's Balmerino Abbey with its atmospheric 13th-century ruins and the Backhouse Rossie Estate, an RHS Partner Garden with rare plants, woodland walking and children's trails. The Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve at Morton Lochs offers something for everyone, an ever changing landscape with seals hauling themselves out of the water, hungry birds looking for food and a rich variety of nature's wonders. Though the village of Newburgh may be small, there are many treasures drawing in visitors; the remains of Macduff's Cross are a historical landmark to discover, Newburgh Sailing Club and Laing Museum featuring antiquarian artefacts of Newburgh's Alexander Laing. This delightful location is one for adventurous visitors seeking a rejuvenating break to the Fife countryside.
