  • “Cosy cottage , really enjoyed our stay .”

    A bit remote but we like the peace and quiet, having said this your only a few miles car journey from all the places of interest and the coast.

The property

St Andrews 6.8 miles.

Set in a rural backdrop of a quiet Scottish hamlet is an attractive end terrace cottage, paces away from a Michelin Star restaurant, perfectly situated for a group of couples or small families wanting to enjoy a picturesque Scottish getaway.

Rhum Cottage rests in a hidden away corner of Peat Inn where you're welcomed through a gate to the back entrance, finding a private patio which makes a great spot to sip on a peaceful morning coffee.

The ground floor hosts a sociable space to gather with your loved ones, starting with a fully-functioning kitchen, equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine and a dishwasher, certain to entice any budding chef.

Choose to dine alfresco in the summer or enjoy a casual meal in the sitting room as you unwind during a relaxing movie night while the wood burning stove offers a sense of comfort and charm.

When sleep calls, escape to one of two double bedrooms; both well-presented in a bohemian style, accompanied by storage space and providing access to a stylish shower room where you can prepare for each day.

The cottage rests in the quiet hamlet of Peat Inn, a secluded location in the East Neuk and its surrounding harbour towns, home to a unique Michelin starred restaurant, found right next to the property, where you can experience fine dining in the hotel and restaurant which dates back to the 1700s, a special experience for a memorable evening out.

Head into the village of Ceres to pick up any essentials from the local store and pop into the village pub for a pint of ale, before meandering around the Fife Folk Museum and village green.

Spend a day soaking up Scottish heritage in St Andrews, a historic university town with a renowned golf course, glorious sandy beach and fabulous aquarium, make sure to visit all the top tourist spots before heading to one of the many restaurants or cafés for a bite to eat.

The cottage is close to the traditional, picturesque harbour towns of St Monans and Crail with their beautiful harbours and quaint cafes.

The stunning beach at Elie is a favourite for walks and a variety of water sports whilst Pittenweem another harbour town only 9 miles away, hosts numerous arts and crafts festivals and events which are always enjoyable.

Anstruther (10 miles away) hosts world famous fish & chips that you can enjoy down by the harbour before you pop in and out of the town’s shops and cafés.

Dundee is the nearest city, steeped in cultural history with the RRS Discovery (the last traditional wooden three-masted ship to be built in the UK and launched in 1901 for Antarctic research), and the famous V&A Museum.

For golf lovers, nearby St Andrew’s boasts 7 golf courses including the world-famous ‘Old Course’.

About the location


Dundee 13 miles; Perth 35 miles; Edinburgh 50 miles.

St Andrews is Scotland's oldest university town and is situated in the north-east corner of the Kingdom of Fife. In this region, the landscape varies from the gentle hills in the rural hinterland to the windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches where scenes from the film 'Chariots of Fire' were famously shot. The town is easily explored on foot, as the main streets form the hub of the town and offer an interesting mix of 13th century through to modern-day buildings, found alongside a variety of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. The association of St Andrews with golf dates to the 15th century, with the famous 'Old Course' being constructed in the 16th century, whilst today, St Andrews is the frequent venue of championship events and boasts an additional five alternative public courses in the area as well as the excellent Golf Museum. To the south of St Andrews is the East Neuk, a region of quaint fishing villages, while Fife, Dundee, Perth and Edinburgh can all be easily reached.
