About The Old Barn Cottage

The Old Barn Cottage provides four star quality holiday accommodation which is located on a small family run farm in the lovely area of East Neuk in Fife. This holiday cottage is situated in a wonderful rural position with beautiful views across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh and North Berwick.

This is a fabulous place to get away from it all and truly relax and is ideally situated for visiting the many tourist attractions that this beautiful part of Scotland has to offer.

The local area offers a huge range of outdoor activities including water sports, cycleways and the Fife Coastal Path which is great for walkers. The area also has over forty golf courses all within easy reach and less than an hour by car. Prestigious St Andrews is only a ten minute drive making The Old Barn Cottage a good choice for those who enjoy a round!

There are plenty of places to visit including the Scottish Deer Centre, St Andrews, fishing villages, museums, Kellie Castle and for lazy days, glorious quiet Blue Flag beaches.

For those who want to escape cooking whilst on holiday, you can choose from a wide variety of excellent places to eat from acclaimed restaurants to bars and cafes, all within a short drive and many located either within the local countryside or around the coastal villages.
