Gorgeous, charming Rose Cottage with sea views near Crail & St Andrews -Sleeps 6
Rose cottage owner, Sara is "The East Neuk Blogger". She hails from the west of Scotland but followed the sun east! Sara loves setting off with her trusty camera to find exciting new things to share with visitors to the East Neuk and St Andrews area on her blog - which was recently featured in New York Magazine. Sara and her husband fell in love with Rose Cottage as soon as they saw it - walking through the door instantly relaxed them from their busy city lives and standing in the living room looking one way to the sea and the other way to the amazing garden just blew them away. Drinking a coffee in beautiful Crail after the viewing, while sitting outdoors looking across the sea to the Isle of May, it was hard to believe they were just an hour and 20 minutes drive from Edinburgh. They were in no doubt that they'd found Scottish holiday heaven! Since then they've changed the interior decor considerably to make it a luxurious coastal holiday cottage while retaining all the relaxed, rural charm it had before. Spending time sitting in the garden room, looking out to the garden with a cuppa or a wee tipple or watching the amazing sunsets and sea views out front is always magical. Sara loves it when guests get to enjoy these things too!
Sara purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Sara chose Anstruther
The pace of life is just a little slower in the East Neuk of Fife, which makes it ideal for a relaxing holiday. Walking along beautiful beaches, enjoying delicious local food and drink, exploring quaint fishing villages and trying to perfect your golf swing make for happy holidays. Short breaks at Rose Cottage are always lovely throughout the year but to really unwind and let the place work its magical I would recommend spending at least a week here.

Best wee cottage ever!
Everything was better than expected. I don’t know where to start. Welcoming goodies, good beds, cleanliness, wonderful garden, equipment, surrounding areas... we loved the beach at Kingsbarn, went there every day for several walkies with our dog. Plus St Andrews is close with its historic places, pubs and other things to do.
Really beautiful cottage and garden
This is the best cottage I have ever stayed in! The interior is very attractive and comfortable with everything you need, and the welcome tray was really special with even something for my dogs. The garden is enormous, beautiful and fully enclosed. My favorite spot was the garden room to enjoy the view, and the total peace and quiet.
Lovely stylish cottage with superb views. Very conveniently located for visiting beaches, gardens, coastal towns - all within easy reach. Great for 4 people.
Charming cottage in an idyllic location
We have just returned from 3 nights at rose cottage, and loved every minute. The cottage was cosy and well equipped, in a wonderful location and very dog friendly. The gardens were lovely and the views from the front and the back of the property were stunning. Every little detail has been carefully thought out from the tray of goodies on our arrival to a personal welcome on the chalk board. Our Labrador is now addicted to the meaty treats that were left for her! We have family in Crail and have already decided we will return to Rose cottage whenever we go to visit. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
Rose Cottage is a delight and the garden superb. An idyllic location.
It was like home from home. Everything we needed was there and we felt very relaxed in such a wonderful cottage and surroundings. Rose Cottage is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.
Rose Cottage was beautiful , spotless, cosy , well-equipped and spacious.
We walked the Fife Coastal Path in 34mph winds , discovered beautiful fishing villages , our favourite being Pittenweem, and then came back to cosy , warm Rose Cottage .
The appliances were great , the fire a dream ,but sadly , we were the only customers in The East Neuk Hotel watching Ireland win The Six Nations Grand Slam ...
Oh and the cheese and leek bread from the bakery ,was the softest ,tastiest ,we've ever had - get there early to buy some
Thank you Sara - we would love to come back to explore further ,perhaps at a different time of year.
Rose Cottage comes highly recommended .
Rose Cottage is perfectly located in idyllic countryside on the gorgeous East Neuk of Fife coast in Eastern Scotland. Within walking distance (about 1.5 miles) from each of the quaint historic coastal East Neuk villages of Crail and Kingsbarns and only 9 miles (15 minutes by car/bus) from the beautiful seaside and University town of St Andrews, with its sights, beaches, shops, spas and golf.
