Kirkview Cottage is located in the historic village of Upper Largo in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, 10 miles from the historic town of St Andrews famed for its golf and university.
The cottage is a single storey bungalow and all rooms are on the same floor with no internal steps. There is a small enclosed mature garden to the rear which catches the sun on a nice day. The cottage has an open aspect overlooking Upper Largo's small village green and its historic church. Many walks radiate from Upper Largo including the challenging climb up Largo Law (the views are worth it) and access to the Fife coastal path is very close by.
The property was upgraded in 2019 and is finished in a modern contemporary style and features all the equipment you will need for a comfortable holiday.
Close by is the historic Largo House (now sadly a ruin) once occupied by Sir Andrew Wood, famed for seeing off English raiders in the Firth of Forth during the reign of James IV. Walk up the hill out of the village, past the school and cemetery and look back to the fields behind Largo House to see if you can trace the canal Sir Andrew built to allow him to sail to church on Sunday.
The village of Upper Largo has the popular and hospitable Upper Largo Hotel, which serves great value meals at lunch and dinner 7 days a week, the hotel also has a small bar (which is dog friendly) if you only want a drink or a bar supper. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the cottage.
Further afield the nearest supermarket is 3 miles away in Leven and there are a variety of eating places within easy striking distance ranging from the Michelin starred Peat Inn to the award winning Cromars fish and chip shop in St Andrews as well as multiple quality farm shops.
Simon and Becca look forward to welcoming you to Kirkview Cottage where we are sure you will have a wonderful stay.
