About this property
Resting within striking distance of the endearing River Tay, nestled on the main high street of Newburgh, is this charming thatched dwelling, Shortbread Cottage. This Scottish retreat, believed to date back to 1605, is perfect for a couple seeking to explore the delights that this corner of Fife has to offer, including a dramatic coastline, historical landmarks and a multitude of walking opportunities. After an action-packed day, look forward to relaxing into your evening within the elegant interior, where the contemporary furnishings and colour palette create a refreshing ambiance for your week-long break. This all-ground-floor accommodation comes with a well-equipped kitchen, where you will find everything to fulfil your culinary needs to prepare a hearty breakfast, pack a picnic to explore the countryside, or a delicious evening meal to enjoy with your loved one at the dining table. After dinner, venture into the sitting room, where a plush sofa awaits you to sink into after an action-packed day and a selection of books to pass a couple of hours before you head to bed. Retire to the double bedroom which oozes character and charm, with the striking orange wall complementing the traditional chest for storing away your holiday items. During a balmy afternoon, you and your partner can soak up the sun within the rear garden, where you can pour yourself a refreshing beverage to enjoy either in the summer house or upon the decked area. Newburgh is a great base from which to explore many major centres of interest, such as Dundee's V&A museum, or head over to Falkland to see stunning countryside, made famous recently in the TV show Outlander. There are a multitude of historical landmarks to discover, including the National Trust's Balmerino Abbey and the Backhouse Rossie Estate, where you will also find a number of woodland walks to explore. For whisky lovers there is the Lindores Abbey Distillery or for those feeling active, spend some time on the Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve at Morton Lochs. Shortbread Cottage is an idyllic base for a refreshing break with your loved one.
