Thoroughly enjoyed our stay
We found the property to be an ideal home from home as a base for a Monday to Friday short break...didn’t encounter any problems whatsoever. You’d have to nit pick to find something to complain about. Have no hesitation in recommending this property.
Thank you Steven, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly.
As listed. Great to get to St Andrews, Crail, Anstruther and others.
Great cottage in a lovely location!
Quirky little house in attractive village
Quaint old house in attractive village, but with all mod cons. Very good shower and cooker. Stairs steep. Only hundred yards or so from harbour and village shop, where fresh bread delivered daily and next door to that is wonderful fish merchant.
Perfect spring break
I stayed at this property with my husband, baby and parents and we had a super and very peaceful time. Steven is a great host and the property is beautiful and set in the most gorgeous village. We enjoyed walks, trips to nearby villages and a visit to St. Andrews. The village shop and local cafe are great!
Property has lots of character and has been well decorated. Is in great spot, short stroll to harbour and we had excellent meal at Craig Millar @ 16 West End overlooking the sea.. Also found it to be great base from which to explore surrounding coast..easy to get to St Andrew's and had excellent day at Cambo Gardens. A lot of thought has obviously been put into decorating the property, with individual artwork in each room and sense of style. Had lovely 4 days!
The harbour is a one minute walk from the property and rocky beaches 5 minutes walk away. A large sandy beach is 2 miles from the cottage in Elie, you can walk there easily along the coastal path or drive in 5 minutes.
Edinburgh Airport is 35 miles away and Kirkaldy train station is 20 miles away with regular trains to Edinburgh, St Andrews and beyond.
St Andrews 12 miles. Edinburgh 45 miles. Perth 40 miles.
There is a great shop and Post Office 100 yards from the cottage, open 6am till 8pm daily and 6pm Sunday, providing local baked goods, newspapers, wine and great smoked fish amongst everything else you could possibly need.
There are two very good restaurants in the village - both serve locally caught fish. The East Pier Smokehouse opens seasonally and is amazing - James smokes his own fish and then serves it and dressed crab, mackerel and lobster with chips and salad in a box! For more formal dining 16 West End is an award-winning fish restaurant with chef Craig Millar in charge.
There is a pub in the village called the Mayview and other good pubs can be found locally. Elie has a great bake-shop and deli 2 miles away. One mile away there is a farm shop called Ardross selling vegetables and organic meat. Anstruther 5 miles away has a large Co-op supermarket (open 6am till 11pm daily) and many more local shops, pubs and restaurants including The Cellar, which now has a Michelin star.
Behind the cottage East Neuk Shellfish sell every shellfish you can imagine - daily availability is what the boats provide but Ronan will let you know what's on offer and is more than happy to deal with holidaymakers and trade customers alike.
There are tennis courts 2 miles away and an open air sea pool on the coast for the brave! Bikes and windsurfing kit can be hired in Elie.
