“Great place...just the hot water!”
Reviewed 26 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Just back from a great weekend stay. House is beautiful with all the mod cons. Owners were very thoughtful and left fresh eggs, scones, tablet and macaron for us, as well as plenty of things for the fire. The only small downside was the hot water, or lack of it. After 2 people had a shower it was all done! Aside from that lovely place and idea location for seeing around St. Andrews.

Management Response

Thank you coming to stay with us at Orchard Cottage. We are very sorry to hear that you had an issue with the hot water. As we only live a stones throw away, we leave a thorough 'house manual' and always advise our guests to get in contact with us on our mobiles immediately if there are any problems, we are upset to hear that this was the case! We have been renting the property since September 2016 to groups, the majority of which have been full capacity groups (8 people) and this has never happened before.

We will obviously look into this further before the arrival of further guests, to ensure that does not happen again.

Best wishes,
Fiona and David

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 1 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The Orchard Cottage by Kincaple Farm is the ultimate destination for a weekend away in the countryside. Every person in our 8 person group was blown away by how architecturally beautiful, cozy and clean this cottage was while Fiona was the perfect host. Would recommend this to anyone, we couldnt fault this place. Already planning a return visit!

“Doesn't get better”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Stayed in Orchard Cottage with family from Cape Town. We had been in Italy the previous week but the accommodation at Orchard Cottage was so much better than in Italy. Well appointed and prepared with lots of lovely touches and close to St Andrews without being in the town. Would recommend this as one of, if not the best house we have ever stayed in. Fiona and David made the whole exercise easy and enjoyable with all their help. Will be back.

“Beautiful setting , beautiful home, really loved our stay.”
Reviewed 31 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

St Andrews is a great place to visit, beautiful historical buildings, beach and of course the golf course. Orchard Cottage is near enough to get to St Andrews with a short drive, also a couple of little villages nearby enough to walk. We had a 3year old with us who loved running around the Orchard area, playing ball. The facilities in the "cottage" are just fabulous, a lovely family friendly environment. The little extras on arrival, scones, jam and fresh eggs etc were greatly appreciated. Would definitely visit again.
