  • The Doocot @ East Neuk Orchards, FifeInstant Book Overlay Image
    The Doocot is the latest renovation at East Neuk Orchards. This stunning accommodation has been completed to a high standard; it truly is impressive. The space, the light, the artwork and the quality of bespoke finishings will make you feel welcome and at home. This incredible building has been transformed from an historic, semi-derelict and very unusual three story doocot (dovecot) into a beautiful, modern single bedroom holiday house. With minimal intervention the original nesting boxes have been lovingly preserved and many of timber surfaces have been created using planks from a single, local fallen and dried elm tree.

    As you enter the property you will find a stunning master bedroom offering a 2 metre long kingsize bed which can be converted into a twin arrangement. The high vaulted ceiling has been cleverly designed with shimmering stars and constellations. There is a large French window boasting plenty of light as it opens out into the shared courtyard. The en-suite shower room is spacious and has a walk-in shower. Upstairs the layout has been very well designed to create a wonderful, bright, cosy open plan living space that takes advantage of the fabulous sea view.

    This property is ideal for a romantic getaway or a peaceful retreat. Set in 10 acres of wooded grounds and orchards. The Gillingshill Reservoir and Nature Reserve are just across the road offering the most tranquil setting. Pittenweem and Anstruther can be reached within a 10-minute drive, these being some of the most picturesque fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife. St Andrews is 15 minutes away.
