Cottage, Rural

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. Visit the East Neuk of Fife for an exciting day exploring the scenic Scottish coastline, filled with sandy beaches, charming harbour towns and fresh seafood at stunning waterfront restaurants. 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’. In addition, the world-renowned course at Kingsbarns is only 11 miles from the cottage. If you’re not spending a day in the capital city of Edinburgh, must-see attractions in the area include Falkland Palace & Garden, a National Trust for Scotland property with exceptional Renaissance architecture, and the Lomond Hills Regional Park which lies next to it, another NTS property at Kellie Castle & Gardens, and the popular seaside resort of Level further afield. Make Rhum Cottage your home away from home for your Scottish escapades. EPC Rating: Band F
