Kinghorn Town Hall is a beautiful self-catering apartment located in Kinghorn, The Kingdom of Fife. The apartment has a beautiful spacious open plan living/dining area with comfortable seating, Smart TV, DVD player, selection of books, DVDs and board games. The dining table seats 6 people, although there are a couple of extra seats if having guests visit. Just off the dining area, there is a separate fully equipped kitchen. This is a comfortable size if you are cooking or baking, and have all the equipment you should require. An inventory list is available in advance if you would like to double check.
There are three bedrooms in the property. A twin room; with two single beds, Queen-sized double bedroom and a ¾ / small double bedroom with an ensuite. For the ¾ / small double bed – we recommend this for one adult or two children. Within the ensuite there is a shower, sink and toilet. The main bathroom is also located on the bedroom floor which has a sink, toilet and shower over a bath.
The apartment is located on the first and second floor of the property. To access the apartment there are several stairs to reach the ground floor. The ground floor is previously the old jail, which is now one of the offices for Fife Historic Buildings Trust, although mainly unused, our team sometimes uses the meeting room also on the ground floor. There is a separate locked door to access the apartment within the ground floor hallway. Within the stairwell there is a singular toilet and sink. Up two flights of stairs there is the entrance into the living/dining room. If you continue up the stairs to the second floor, you will find the three bedrooms and family bathroom. The washing machine and tumble dryer are also on the second floor.
From the second floor hallway to the kitchen, there is also a hidden spiral staircase that can be used. The apartment has been sympathetically restored, retaining many period features. The rooms are furnished in keeping with the history of the building, while providing all the modern amenities you would expect.
The apartment is fantastic for families and friends to gather and relax, enjoying time together in the large main room or taking in some of the beautiful Fife Coast.
Guests can access a small fully enclosed private garden, the access is located on North Overgate at the side of the property. There is a table and chairs in the garden as well as access to a small bbq in summer (coal not supplied).
Built in the Tudor Gothic style, this impressive castellated stone structure enjoys glimpses out across the Firth of Forth. The Town Hall was constructed in 1826, replacing an earlier medieval building which was hit and seriously damaged by lightning. Part of the original building is thought to date back to the 12th century. Latterly it was used to provide the debating chamber, offices and prison cells for the Burgh Council. The new building was designed by the architect Thomas Hamilton (1784-1858) and was used for Council functions for almost 150 years but fell into disrepair in the 1980s. It was restored in 2009.
