Had a wonderful week at Shoreleave. Lovely, home from home cottage. Beautiful location right on the harbour, enjoyed watching the fisherman bring in their catch and all the activity on the sea from the upstairs lounge. Perfect for walking the coastal path. Would definitely recommend and hopefully be back again.

We loved it *********

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Shoreleave and definitely won't be our last, such a perfect spot overlooking the harbour. The house has everything you need for a real home from home including comfy beds which I think is important for a good holiday.

St monans has a cute little pebble beach perfect for children and a lovely coastal walk.

Really excellent local restaurants and a great little cafe ( try their ice cream).

We can't wait to come back.

Beautiful and cosy home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this beautiful holiday home overlooking the harbour in St Monans. The three floors are well laid out and there's plenty of space in all the rooms with amazing views from the top sitting room. I especially liked the kitchen with every appliance you could need and an excellent oven. There's a Spa shop a minute away for all the essentials and an excellent farm shop a 20 walk away for everything else. You also have lots of great places to eat out nearby if you don't fancy cooking each night. The town has a wonderful community vibe and is a beautiful place to visit.

Brilliant for our family birthday get together.

  • 4 of 5

The house was lovely and had everything we needed for a great holiday.

We enjoyed the view from the upstairs sitting room and it was good to sit at the large kitchen table together.

The bath was special and the four toilets an asset!!
