Anstruther house description

Ivybank is located close to the old harbour. The sea shore is only 15 yards from the Garden fence. All rooms have Sea Views. The House has been completely modernized. There is a large kitchen/dining room which is fully equipped. There are four Bedrooms that can sleep 8 in different configurations. (Two king size beds and four single beds. Two of the singles can be zipped together to form a Super Kingsize bed). Large lounge with log burning stove and flat screen TV. Wireless broadband available. There are two shower rooms (one with a bath) and a third WC on the top floor. There is a new ground floor sun room / family room with folding sliding doors opening onto a large deck and patio and attractive enclosed garden. There is private parking for two cars. Our first guests this Easter said the house was amazing and that they would be coming back. We know you too will fall in love with Ivybank.

St Monans is an ideal location to base yourself for a fantastic holiday. You will be close to the Blue Flag beaches at Elie (2 miles) and St. Andrews. It is also a short drive to a large number of great golf courses including the 'Old Course' at St Andrews (12 Miles). As well as the old fishing harbour in St Monans and the wonderful walks round the harbour and through the winding alleyways of the conservation village you are also only a brisk 15 minute walk to the harbour village of Pittenweem. By car or bus you can also visit the other harbour villages of Anstruther, Cellardyke and Crail. Many visitors will always gravitate to St Andrews with its many attractions to suit all tastes. Ivybank is a great base to enjoy the Fife Coastal Path which passes the house and through the countryside around the village. The famous 'Craig Miller' sea food restaurant, on the harbour side, is a 'must' to visit - but booking is essential. The Mayview Hotel and restaurant is also a great place to eat out within the village. The 'Harbour Howff' is a popular cafe/restaurant which also serves simple meals. There is an oriental take away restaurant at the entrance to the village. There are two village shops, one only 100 yards from the house, both are well stocked. You will also be able to buy fresh fish from the wholesale fish market at the entrance to the village . There is a Hair and Beauty saloon at the entrance to Rose street.

                                        We love this House and its situation .We have visited Ivybank before and when we read the visitors book in the house we realise that we are not alone in saying that this house is a perfect holiday home. Everyone who stays here leaves very complementary comments. Why don't you make Ivybank your holiday destination and see for yourself?
