Exactly what we needed. Great views, good walking/hiking trails. Comfortable bed. Easy access to Dundee as well as the train station to the rest of Scotland. Highly recommend.
Great Property in a fantastic location
Very impressed with the property. The images of the views coupled with the facilities offered at the location encouraged me to book, and it certainly didn't disappoint. Communication with the host throughout was exceptional, and excellent meet and greet on arrival. The property, located in a quiet residential area, lived up to all expectations. The facilities are first class and the views, wow the views, are amongst the best of any property or hotel ive stayed at.
Overall, very much enjoyed our stay, with a fantastic host, would very much recommend this property to anyone, and would certainly want to stay again (and again!)
A very comfortable place to stay
We loved the spacious, luminous impeccably furnished rooms having stunning views of the the Tay Bridge and Dundee. The beds were most comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen were appointed with good quality appliances and equipment. The Robert was a friendly welcoming manager. Newport-on-Tay is fairly quiet but St Andrews and Dundee are just a short drive away. Highly recommended!
Hieno paikka mahtavalla näköalalla!
Täydellisesti varusteltu huoneisto vuokraisännän talon yläkerrassa. Hyvät sängyt isommallekin ihmiselle. Isäntäväki mukavaa. Hyvin varustellussa keittiössä oli valmiina odottamassa starttipaketti ensimmäistä aamiaista varten. Paikka on lähellä A92 tietä, joten paikka on hyvä tukikohta esim. golfareille. Suosittelen lämpimästi!
Bridge over the Tay
Had a lovely 4 nights staying at home of Robert and Susan. They are charming and very considerate hosts - available with all sorts of local information but completely unobtrusive.
The facilities are excellent and spotless. We loved the views over the Tay as I guess has everyone who has stayed here.
An absolute pleasure - many thanks indeed.
Great 3 day stay!!!!
Our stay was excellent. The website pics are spot on . Close to St Andrew's and Carnoustie. Beautiful views from our rooms. Robert & Susan were very helpful. We will return.
Newport-on-Tay lies in North Fife and enjoys breathtaking views over the Tay Estuary to Dundee. It was from here that the Tay Ferries ran, taking vehicles and passengers to Dundee. A ferry service has been in this area for centuries.
So why should you stay at the Braemore Apartment in Newport-on-Tay ?
Firstly Newport is a lovely old Victorian town with fabulous views over the estuary but with a village feel about it. One of the best reasons for staying here is our location. The town is coastal and rural yet only 1.5 miles from a City Centre over the Tay Road Bridge which can also be used by pedestrians and cyclists. We are therefore well placed for the two Universities in Dundee and St Andrews University is only 15 minutes by car. If you are a golfer then there are over 50 courses within about 30 minutes drive including the Old Course at St Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie. The qualifying courses at St Michaels and Tayport are just a few minutes away.
There is a bus stop about 200 meters from the apartment on Tay St with regular buses running over to Dundee and the local railway stations at Dundee and Leuchars are 2 miles and 5 miles distant and we can collect you and drop you off if required. Both stations are on the main London-Edinburgh-Aberdeen railway lines
The village shops are less than a kilometer away and there you will find amongst others, a Post Office, a very good Butcher, 3 coffee shops/cafe's, a florist, a Fish and Chip Shop, 2 Convenience Stores, 2 Cash Machines and a Hairdresser. There are also a couple of pubs and a good restaurant in nearby Wormit. If you need to do a 'big' shop then there is a major supermarket about 7 minutes drive by car over in Dundee.
Secondly, the apartment enjoys breathtaking views from both bedrooms over the Tay Estuary to Dundee and a host of wildlife can be enjoyed from your window including seabirds, seals and dolphins. Birds of all kinds abound including Sea Eagles from time to time.
Finally the apartment comes with a 4 Star rating from Visit Scotland and at 75 square meters it is more spacious than the average and thus extremely good value for money.
