Carnegie Cottage in Grieve Street Dunfermline is the lower apartment of a typical late 19th century worker's cottage. It retains many original features, including cast-iron fireplaces, cornicing, original hardwood panelled doors and internal window shutters, but with central heating - which guests can switch on and off as they wish - and all the modern day equipment you expect in a holiday rental - most importantly of all for many, FREE fast unlimited WiFi. Most of our guests love the cosy old world atmosphere of this property and many return year after year.
The large DOUBLE BEDROOM is furnished with a double bed, wardrobe, cupboards, bedside tables and lamps, and has central heating. The window looks out onto the quiet front street. Bedding and ample towels are provided but heavy towel users are welcome to bring extra of their own.
The SMALL BEDROOM is equipped with two bunk beds, with normal single mattresses suitable for children or younger adults, bearing in mind that bunk beds are not always suitable for older or larger adults. The room is centrally heated. Window overlooks gardens. Again bedding and towels are provided.
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY is given as 4, but a fifth person may be accommodated by setting up a simple folding camp bed (which we can provide) in the living room or large bedroom. Guests will need to make this folding bed up themselves.
The LIVING/DINING ROOM is furnished with a sofa and cushions, dining table and four chairs, coffee tables, bookshelves with a selection of books of local interest, Freeview TV, etc.
A SEPARATE KITCHEN is equipped with a free-standing electric cooker with hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine/drier, kettle, toaster, pots and pans, plates and dishes etc..
There is a SHOWER ROOM and an adjacent room with a TOILET AND WASH BASIN. Both are centrally heated.
The property is NON-SMOKING and the burning of candles is NOT allowed. There is a private area outside at the rear where smokers can indulge.

With historic buildings, museums, country walks, and delightful parkland of its own, Dunfermline is also ideally situated for visiting many of the historic towns and villages of Scotland, whether travelling by car, or public transport. The main bus/coach station is 10 minutes walk from the cottage. You are never far from the sea, a golf course, historic castle or mansion, and our attractive hilly countryside.
