Description

Weavers Cottage is a delightful, end-terrace, character cottage, nestled in a peaceful location in the historical Royal Burgh of Newburgh in Fife. Situated in a conservation area, believed to have been originally built in the early 1800s as weaving sheds, the property is right in the heart of the town and is within walking distance of the local pub, shops and cafés. Accessed by a narrow lane, the cottage is beautifully furnished throughout and full of character and charm. The cosy living room is well furnished with comfortable seating and a wood burner, ideal for spending a lazy afternoon with a book. The kitchen/dining room is furnished with contemporary appliances and is well organised and equipped. On the first floor there is a family bathroom and two beautifully presented double bedrooms, which makes it a great holiday home for couples, families and friends.
Newburgh is situated on the south banks of the Firth of Tay with the Lomond Hills behind, and is ideally placed for people who enjoy the outdoors with plenty of local footpaths, cycle ways and mountain bike tracks. Newburgh has an active live music calendar, a local cinema club and events hosted throughout the year. You can follow the historic trail through the town to find out about the rich history of this area. Lindores Abbey Distillery, the earliest written reference to Scotch Whisky, can be found close by. A little further afield Perth, Dundee and St Andrews make great days out. The Fife Coastal Route takes you out into some of the most spectacular coastal scenery, pretty fishing villages and sandy beaches. After a day exploring the area you can return to Weavers Cottage, where you can relax and plan the next days adventures. Shop, 200 yards, pub 500 yards, restaurant 3 miles.

About the local area

Fife was home to Scotland's capital for six centuries, the evidence of which can still be found in its many castles, cathedrals and places of historic interest. Apart from its historical heritage Fife is also renowned for world class golf courses and lovely stretches of picturesque coastline.

Long sections of the Fife Coastal Path can now be enjoyed by walkers and there are a variety of linear and circular routes which have been graded and waymarked, from which you can enjoy beautiful seacapes and spot spectacular wildlife such as grey seals, dolphins and maybe even the odd basking shark. For bird lovers the offshore islands of Inchkeith and Inchcolm are home to thousands of seabirds, including large numbers of Puffins in May.

In the northeast the gentle rolling hills of the hinterland extend eastwards to windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches, where scenes from the film `Chariots of Fire' were filmed. South down the coast a short distance is the ancient university town of St. Andrews, home to the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club.

St. Andrews University was founded in 1410 and is Scotland's oldest university town. The medieval town centre has narrow alleys and cobbled streets which lead to the now ruined cathedral and the church of St. Regulus, which has a spiral staircase leading to the top of a 108-foot tower, offering magnificent views over the town. There are also two great beaches, botanical gardens and an aquarium here.

South of St. Andrews the picturesque small stone harbour fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Piteenween and St Monans are all places to experience the un-hurried pace of life by the sea. Further round the coast there are a number of first class golf courses such as Elie and Leven Links, to name only two of more than forty golf courses in this region!

Southern Fife is dominated by Dunfirmline, Scotland's former capital. The Forth Road and Rail Bridges over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh are the most distinctive landmarks on this stretch of coast and allow easy access to the capital for days out.
