We currently have four lodges which opened in September 2014 . One of which sleeps eight across four bedrooms and three of which sleep six across two bedrooms and a sofa bed in the living room area. These are named Drummochy, Massney, Keil and Cardy. They have been specially designed and built with accessibility in mind.
We are delighted however to be offering a further five lodges which are currently being built and are available to book online from the end of March 2023. Two of which sleep eight across four bedrooms and three of which sleep six across three bedrooms. These are named Largo, Lundin, Selkirk, Durham and Emsdorf.
Our sleeps 8 lodges feature two electric profiling hospital beds, one in each ground floor bedroom.

With view across the Firth of Forth, we are surrounded by seaside and countryside. Fife has been working hard to offer more accessible tourist attractions, inclusive play parks, and toileting facilities over recent years and months. There are fantastic beach wheelchairs available to book along at the West Sands in St Andrews. The region is famed for it’s outdoor sports/activities, water sports, history and fresh produce / sea food; served in many of the local restaurants which range from Michelin Starred to world famous and favoured by Royals fish and chips in Anstruther.
