11 November


Can you feel that nip in the air? It's time to plan a memorable cosy winter break in Fife where you can be sure of a warm welcome, luxurious, quirky and cool places to stay and the finest of food and drink along the way.

Memorable places to stay

Whatever you're looking for, Fife has a great collection of places to stay from luxury 5 star hotels, to cosy cottages and quirky eco retreats with stunning views. Wherever you stay, you'll also be sure of a warm welcome. If you're looking for something special, Bracken Treehouse, near Cupar perched in the treetops is a wee sanctuary tucked away neatly inside Airdit Woods. Opened Autumn 2022, it offers secluded luxury and there's even an outside bath where you can almost touch the branches whilst you bathe.

If you're looking for something cool (and cosy) with a view, then The Snug at Logie offers two award-winning, luxury “Armadilla” pods complete with hot tubs and breathtaking views of the River Tay for an enchanting 5 star stay. Off the Track near Crail is another luxury eco-retreat new for 2022 and complete with Scandinavian wood fired hot tub, which they'll even have ready for you on arrival as well as a luxury welcome pack filled with local produce from local Ardross Farm Shop.

If you like the buzz of a city, then why not stay in Dunfermline, Scotland's newest city which offers a host of hotels including Balmule House HotelGarvock House Hotel and Keavil, which also has a swimming pool and spa to help you really unwind after a day sightseeing.

If self catering is more your thing, then consider a cottage, of which there are many offering that luxury experience from the East Neuk to Kinghorn.

Embark on a winter walk

There’s something exhilerating about wrapping up warm, getting the walking boots on and heading out for a wintery walk. You can’t deny that wintertime walking makes you feel alive!  Why not fill a flask and pack some snacks and make a day of it.

There are plenty of fantastic places to go in Fife for a scenic walk to wake up your senses. From hiking in the Lomond Hills - Fife's highest point - following woodland forest trails, the Fife Coastal Path to discovering Fife's picturesque towns and villages.

If like us, walking makes you peckish, then there are plenty of lovely cafes along the way to refuel, including the Cocoa Tree in Pittenweem which gets our vote for the best hot chocolate.

Sample some of Fife's local produce

5-star fine dining, fish and chips, afternoon teas, homemade ice cream... the list goes on! Fife is truly blessed with a natural larder and home to two of Scotland's Michelin starred restaurants - The Cellar and The Peat Inn. If you're planning a visit, we recommend booking ahead. 

No visit to Fife is complete without sampling some fresh seafood. For an authentic experience, why visit the East Pier Smokehouse, where you can eat the freshest of fish. Other seafood restaurants include The Dory Bistro, Room with a View and The Seafood Ristorante.If you're staying in self catering, then pick up some fresh ingredients from one of the many Fife farm shops.

If pub grub is your thing, imagine snuggling up next to a cosy fire and enjoying a dram at one of our many traditional pubs or enjoying some hot, hearty comfort food in one of our resturants or cafes after a day exploring - perfection! 

Whatever you are in the mood for eating, there will be something to take your fancy in Fife. There are some excellent restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars all over the region with menus filled with Fife’s local and seasonal produce.

Get back to nature and enjoy the scenery

Fife can look it’s loveliest in winter. Snow-speckled hills and frosty forests can make the landscape look truly enchanting. Fife is also surrounded by a stunning coastline which becomes a canvas for vibrant winter sunsets and sunrises over the winter months. You may also be lucky to catch the aurora borealis.

5 .

Take in some culture

Fife has lots of fantastic museums and galleries - perfect for a day out in the colder weather. Learn about Fife’s fascinating history at the Fife Folk Museum and Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries. In the evening why not take in a show at one of Fife's theatres
