The property

Resting within striking distance of the endearing River Tay, nestled on the main high street of Newburgh, is this charming thatched dwelling, Shortbread Cottage.

This Scottish retreat, believed to date back to 1605, is perfect for a couple seeking to explore the delights that this corner of Fife has to offer, including a dramatic coastline, historical landmarks and a multitude of walking opportunities.

After an action-packed day, look forward to relaxing into your evening within the elegant interior, where the contemporary furnishings and colour palette create a refreshing ambiance for your week-long break.

This all-ground-floor accommodation comes with a well-equipped kitchen, where you will find everything to fulfil your culinary needs to prepare a hearty breakfast, pack a picnic to explore the countryside, or a delicious evening meal to enjoy with your loved one at the dining table.

After dinner, venture into the sitting room, where a plush sofa awaits you to sink into after an action-packed day and a selection of books to pass a couple of hours before you head to bed.

Retire to the double bedroom which oozes character and charm, with the striking orange wall complementing the traditional chest for storing away your holiday items.

During a balmy afternoon, you and your partner can soak up the sun within the rear garden, where you can pour yourself a refreshing beverage to enjoy either in the summer house or upon the decked area.

Newburgh is a great base from which to explore many major centres of interest, such as Dundee's V&A museum, or head over to Falkland to see stunning countryside, made famous recently in the TV show Outlander.

There are a multitude of historical landmarks to discover, including the National Trust's Balmerino Abbey and the Backhouse Rossie Estate, where you will also find a number of woodland walks to explore.

For whisky lovers there is the Lindores Abbey Distillery or for those feeling active, spend some time on the Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve at Morton Lochs.

Shortbread Cottage is an idyllic base for a refreshing break with your loved one.

About the location

NEWBURGH, FIFE

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.
