  • "Wonderland cottage is a hidden jem."

    Beautiful cottage and magical garden. It’s a perfect place for an escape. We met the owner yesterday, Stella, she is lovely and made us feel very welcome. Our dog Dash was very happy too and the garden, being enclosed was perfect for him. Thank you can’t wait to return to this beautiful, magical place.

  • "We had an incredible time here."

    The cottage was even quirkier and more beautiful that we could imagine. It had everything we needed to eat in and we enjoyed dinner in the garden. The personal touches were so thoughtful. I stayed with my 1 year old and moved a few things out the way but it was very suitable for him. We met the owner during our stay and she couldn't have Been more helpful. I can see why people would return here again and again. The beds were very comfortable, the bath was stunning and all round just a perfect and cosy little treasure xx

  • "An amazing quirky cottage."

    Loved the Wonderland theme throughout the cottage.....Just the place to chill out. The River Tay is just across the road from the cottage and is a lovely walk along the banks.

  • "We had a fabulous week at this delightfully designed cottage."

    There are so many intriguing surprises inside and out. The house is cosy with Sky TV, a lovely well equipped kitchen, very comfy bedrooms and the sumptuous bathroom. The garden has lots of interesting features with colourful plants and shrubs and a pretty patio area. There's a good takeaway and well stocked co-op across the road. Would highly recommend this place and hope to return again soon.

  • "Wonderland cottage was absolutely perfect."

    It is full of character, beautifully designed with quirky features and wonderful detail. It is a hidden little sanctuary with a wee touch of magic about it and a lot of love gone into its design and ambience. Would highly recommend and love to book again in the future!

  • "A quirky, unusual cottage, with almost every room having a different theme, so if you like detail and 'stuff' then you will find it interesting."

    It's very warm (great in February) and comfortable with good access to a range of shops. Tucked away behind the main street means it is a bit dark, especially downstairs, with no real outlook, only onto the back of some houses and whereas we got parked it may be a problem at busier times on the high street. The garden was a bit untidy, with several projects ongoing, but because it wasn't warm enough to sit out this didn't cause any problems. Overall we felt it was good value for a winter break.

    Hi Barbara, just to say thanks for your feedback. I am always keen to know how I can improve on giving a great guest experience. I'm so sorry if it wasn't clear that guest parking available on the drive! We are hoping to have the garden ship shape for the summer ! Property Owner

  • "The cottage is wonderful."

    It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The mattress in the ‘Alice’ room was too soft for our liking and the lock on the front door was a bit tricky but that is our only negatives for this quirky, quaint cottage. Newburgh is well placed for visiting Perth, Dundee and Fife. Lovely walks from the cottage along the Tay and up Ormiston Hill where the views were spectacular!

    Hi Liz, so glad you enjoyed Wonderland. We have now replaced mattress. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely amazing cottage!"

    I originally chose this place to help with content for my business as each of the rooms were so pretty and interesting, but we felt so peaceful and relaxed here we just enjoyed actually being on holiday! The bath is incredible, the beds comfy, the fire wonderful and the village is so nice and polite. We have a German shepherd, Caucasian shepherd mix so he's very big and guarding but Baloo was so calm and comfortable here. Loved the wooden and cool floors when us humans needed the fire or heating on! The only thing I had a bit of a struggle with was the shower door, it could do with a latch so stay shut and keep the water in and the garden isn't secure for big dogs/escapees but we are used to that! Thank you for everything, Stella was so helpful throughout the holiday when we had questions. Will definitely be coming back!

  • "What a fabulous cottage!"

    Lovely, quirky setting inside loosely based around Alice in Wonderland. We met our landlady who was really welcoming and very helpful. There were a few things that needed to either be replaced or added into the inventory in the house but they were very quickly sorted. We had a lovely, chilled stay with plenty of walks. Highly recommend the distillery tour at the edge of the town! Places of interest are all around and easily visited in a day. Plenty of walking paths and the Fife Coastal Path was great with beautiful views along the river Tay. There is a well stocked shop for food supplies however, places to eat locally were not in evidence. There only seemed to be a takeaway open at the time of visiting, pubs did not appear to be providing food, maybe lockdown related….. We would definitely recommend this lovely cottage.

  • "Lovely, quirky cottage located conveniently in the middle of the village."

    Lovely welcoming touches like milk in the fridge and a box of eat me treats. Garden is slightly overgrown but adds to the character of the cottage. Wonderland themed bedroom was particularly lovely, and the bathroom. Comfortable and spacious. Packed cleaning products following previous bad experience with self-catering cottage elsewhere (also different management company - not sykes) Packed all back into the car unused as the cottage was spotless! No terrestrial tv at the cottage - not a problem if you are happy with smart tv/ fire stick then it’s ok. Could also log in to personal netflix etc accounts. Wifi signal good. Mobile signal with our provider patchy. Parking could be an issue but we had no problem during our stay. Managed to park outside. If there is a problem 5 minute walk - public car park no parking fee at the top of the hill on the way into the village (fife coastal path route) Good location for exploring locally no further than 45 mins or so from any ‘tourist’ destination. Felt like a home from home. 2 pubs within walking distance. Didn’t sample either though. Chinese takeaway very friendly - decent food. Newburgh a ‘normal’ village rather than one geared to tourists. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend the cottage - lovely place to stay.

  • "So, first of all, the cottage is lovely, exactly what what you see in the photographs."

    We used all of the facilities with no problems, heating, cooking, wi-fi all great. Maybe a basic Freeview box for the TV would help if your not OK with a smart TV. The garden could do with a little TLC although just a bit of a tidy really. Communication with the owner again, great, there was a fault with the key safe but all sorted by the time we got there. There were a few issues we thought we need to highlight as it did impact on our stay. Parking, and local facilities. There is no dedicated parking and its pretty much first come first served outside the cottage, otherwise, its street parking. And with the street parking, there are local time restrictions so you need to be on your toes to be aware of them. More than once, we did end up parking 500 yards down the main street just to get an overnight space. The other issue is local facilities in Newburgh itself. This is a small working town not really set up for tourists or visitors. There is 1 takeaway shop, 1 small bar (to be fair, we didn't go in as it looked very small and we were conscious of the local COVID-19 rules), and 1 hotel (not open for accommodation, not doing food, cash only, and the rear beer garden is nothing more than the drayman's delivery yard). There is small local (Co-Op) which does have everything you need for self entertaining. All in all, the cottage is lovely, its just the local facilities that let it down slightly.

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.
