Being a Scottish Travel Blogger can be a lot of work but it’s worth it when you can stay somewhere like this. Driving up to the Homelands Cottages in Lundin Links I knew straight away I was going to have a good night, I love somewhere with a view and what a view! Right over the Lundin Golf course towards the Firth of Forth and over to the Lothians. Imagine the sunsets… and I was even more excited when I unlocked the front door of our accommodation for the night. More on that soon….
After a quick unpack we headed down over the Golf course to the edge of the beach while there was still some light and after taking some photos we walked for a bit along the Fife Coastal Path which runs past the golf course to Pittenweem. Ultimately though it got far too cold so we headed back up to the cottage to get cosy and explore our wee house for the night.
The wow factor of these cottages is without a doubt the stunning modern design. Clean lines, funky angles and spotlights on the ceilings make the rooms look stylish and warm. The walls are painted cream and the furniture is big and chunky which fits in nicely with the open spaces to give a cosy and comfortable feeling.
After our walk I was over the moon to find a tray with tea and coffee, sugar and some biscuits. The owners had also left the heating on which we really appreciated. This would be a completely different post if I'd written it in the summer of course. The huge patio doors would be flung open and we would be sitting in the chairs outside enjoying a BBQ and the view.
The whole of the ground floor is open plan, with a sparkly white kitchen, which has a dish washer, electric hob and all the utensils and crockery you could ever need. The cottage we were in sleeps 8 and has a large dining table laid out neatly separating the kitchen from the sofas. The wooden floors with underfloor heating are fab, I couldn’t resist running around in my socks, I’m a bit mad like that, and the kids loved the walkway above the living room, especially because they were supposed to be asleep and we couldn’t see them lying on the walkway watching the TV
Big patio doors open up to a huge garden with a bench, tables and chairs and plenty space to run around in, and not forgetting the view. If you come, bring your camera, the sunset was gorgeous.
With two bedrooms on the ground floor and a further two upstairs there is plenty room for big families. The main bedroom upstairs has a window which opens out to a balcony and the main bedroom downstairs has patio doors. Two bathrooms, a utility room, big porch and big wide open spaces means this cottage feels HUGE. What I loved most was the quality of everything, from the bedding to the crockery, the curtains to the bathrooms. Everything felt luxurious, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I also had a quick tour around the smaller cottages. They sleep 4 and 6 and are done to the same high standard. Although they don’t have the walkway, there is an indoor balcony instead.
Next to the cottages is the Paxton Centre where you can relax with a coffee in the tea room or have a go at the boardgames. You will soon be able to have a massage or perhaps some aromatherapy in their fully equipped treatment rooms (starting soon).
Each of the cottages as well as the Paxton Centre are fully accessible for people with a range of disabilities. A massive range of specialist equipment is available and will be placed in the cottages for your arrival if needed.
Have a nosy at their website at http://www.homelands-fife.co.uk for more info and booking details. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at these stunning cottages. I can highly recommend a luxurious stay here while you are visiting Fife.
