Thistle Cottage, completed in 2009, offers luxury, spacious, 4 star, self catering accommodation, suitable for sleeping six adults, just outside the village of Upper Largo, gateway to the East Neuk of Fife.
We are 15 minutes away from historic St. Andrews, and in an ideal position for a golfing holiday with over 20 courses within easy traveling distance. Situated on a working farm at the foot of Largo Law we have beautiful scenery over looking Largo Bay, Elie Point and beyond. To make the most of our panoramic views over the river Forth and the Fife and Lothian countryside, the living accommodation is on the first floor. On a clear day from the balcony of Thistle Cottage you will see the magnificent coast line view across the Firth of Forth, from Edinburgh round to St. Abbs Head.
We are in a wonderful, peaceful spot to relax and watch the world go by, but if you are feeling energetic then take a walk up Largo Law, or along Largo beach and then relax in the ambient temperature of your own private hot tub. For your entertainment we have installed a 50" TV, DVD player and a Wii, with an in house entertainment system in the public rooms. You won't be left out if you can't manage the stairs as we have installed a stair lift so that our property is accessible to all.
There is ample car parking space with a ramp to the front door directly from the car park.
