Moira Henderson, of Ring Farm, near Craigrothie, said she was “bemused” by the decision of the North-East Fife Area Committee to reject the application.
A two-storey building with eight bedrooms, designed specially for people with disabilities, including the deaf and blind, was to be built at the farm.
However, councillors refused planning permission, deeming the building too big for its location.
The proposal attracted several objections, including from Ceres and District Community Council, with concerns it would dominate the landscape.
However, there was also significant support, with VisitScotland claiming there was a shortage of such accommodation in the area and that the holiday home would provide a boost to the economy.
I also supported this application to provide additional accessible accommodation in this area of Scotland, and am disappointed that the plans have been refused by the council.
