About lynn gray
My family and I love Fife, particularly the East Neuk with it's quaint seaside villages. With 2 young children there is plenty to keep them entertained and to make sure that we all get the best of the great outdoors. I am a designer so doing up the cottage was a passion for me and means that we enjoy the indoors just as much. Putting on the log-burning stove on a chilly night makes Inisheer a cosy refuge ideal for entertaining.
lynn gray purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why lynn gray chose Leven
Inisheer is just a mile from Elie's award-winning beach and has a lovely garden with glorious views over the surrounding countryside. This all made us fall in love with the house and the area. It is perfectly placed for cliff-top walks, days on the beach, golf is all around and it's only 13 minutes drive from St Andrews for any essential retail therapy/cinema/theatre etc. There are great restaurants nearby from famous fish and chips to top rated gourmet restaurants. A free mini-bus servoce runs to the 2 best pubs and restaurants in nearby Elie.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is laid out and equipped with everything I would wish at home including powerful walk-in shower, high quality beds, original artwork plus beautiful furniture and lighting from my own retail stores. Cooking is important to me so an extra large fridge and freezer are in situ as well as a full range of cooking equipment and of course the obligatory dishwasher! The kitchen is of a high quality hand-painted design with granite work-surfaces.

Charming & cosy country cottage.
A beautifully renovated traditional home with everything you need and more for a family stay. Our party had a great time here celebrating my father-in-law's 60th birthday. The house was ideal for our family set up and the children loved all the nooks and crannies. There are some great walks around the village and a lovely wee football pitch (essential when you've got active boys with you!) and play park just 2 minutes walk from the house.
So glad you had an enjoyable stay and thank you for your kind words about the cottage.
Come again soon!
Lovely house, quiet location
Enjoyed our stay which provided ample space for our party of eight, loved the fire and comfy beds. Beautiful village and very quiet.
This house is just gorgeous. It is quaint and big and the perfect respite in the countryside. We were able to walk to dinner at a very close Inn and the walk was as enjoyable as the dinner!
Fab cottage in an idyllic setting!
Beautifully presented. Clean and spacious! The cottage was exactly what we were looking for. The surrounding area is beautiful. We were very lucky with the weather so we could eat in the garden and enjoy the views! The neighbours were lovely too and very welcoming. The only issue was the shower, which had a mind of its own!
Well equipped and cosy house in a lovely spot. Six old school friends spent the best weekend celebrating a 50th birthday. The weather, the setting and the company could not have been better! Easy walking distance into Elie to enjoy a sunny afternoon at the Ship Inn - food, service and atmosphere all excellent. Only downside to Inisheer is the one bathroom...needs another WC/shower room to match the number of bedrooms. Great fun though and we hope to be back sometime!
The cottage is very spacious and warm. The garden is an added bonus. Would recommend a visit and may return in future.
3 minutes by car, a lovely 30 minute walk or the local, regular bus and you arrive at the beautiful beaches in Elie and Earlsferry. Or, if you prefer, there is a lovely 35 minute woodland walk along the side of the loch which brings you out past Elie House and into the centre of Elie. The trail is ideal for kids on bikes.
Edinburgh airport is under an hour away. A car would be great but not essential for exploring the seaside villages along coast to St Andrews.
Regular bus services make local and longer distance travel easy.
