Sensory environment

We’d like to make your stay here as comfortable as possible.

On this page:


The space has two rooms and a dining kitchen and is aimed at people looking for a quiet break. You will have a private front door and exclusive access to the area, including the kitchen and patio garden.

The house is set back from the road and so traffic noise is fairly low.

However, please be aware of these potential noise concerns:

Train line

The train line runs directly behind the house and you can hear the trains passing by every ten minutes or so during the day.


  • The house adjoins a private home and there may be a small amount of noise from TV, music, and voices, especially young children.
  • Outside, the family verandah adjoins the cottage garden, with only a low barrier. There may be voices and children playing here, too.
  • There is a hotel/pub behind the property. It’s very rare we are troubled by noise from there, but it does happen two or three times a year.

Burntisland Shows: May-August

Between May and August, a funfair operates during the day at a nearby park. Although you can’t hear much of the fair from outside the house itself (and nothing from inside), you do need to walk though or actively bypass this fair to walk between the house and the town centre.


The windows in the bedrooms have curtains, but these are not blackout blinds.
