Further details outdoors

Access to the shore is available. Balcony off sitting room faces South, with fantastic views across the Firth of Forth. Join our Dolphin Watch! Secluded sun trap garden.

Further details

This is a very old cottage, so the ceilings are not high! Not suitable if over 6' 3".

Cellardyke has narrow streets, but there is street parking nearby.

The Fife region

The East Neuk is an area of Fife in Scotland famous for its several ancient fishing villages, of which Cellardyke is one. A good sunny climate, and a wonderful situation.

Cellardyke is a continuation of Anstruther which is a very pretty town with boats in the harbour and interesting shops and restaurants. It is famous for its prizewinning Fish and Chip shop which is only a short walk from the cottage. There is a large variety of restaurants available in and around the area.

Situated on the Fife Coastal Path, for enjoyable walks in stunning scenery.


Anstruther hosts a number of music festivals throughout the year. Pittenweem has an amazing Arts Festival in August each year when a great number of Artists exhibit and open their homes to display their art. Crail is also a lovely Fishing village which has galleries and one or two interesting shops and cafes.

St Andrews is only a short drive away and is a fabulous destination with many attractions including lovely beaches, a Castle and of course Golf Courses. There are 7 including The Old Course. In addition there are championship courses at Kingsbarns, The Torrance and Crail. There is a super 9 hole course in Anstruther.

The area is famous for its bird life especially on the Isle of May and there are daily sailings from Anstruther Harbour. Other attractions include Kellie Castle, Falkland Palace and The Secret Bunker. It is easy to escape into the country with picnics or to visit farm shops and cafes.

"quirky cottage with an amazing view."

The cottage from the outside gives an impression of being very small,where in fact it is very spacious.Inside is well laid out over two floors,is clean,comfortable and well styled and has a balcony with a brilliant view,great for watching dolphins. Would definitely go back again.

"wonderful views from a large cottage"

We found the cottage bigger than we thought from the pictures. The kitchen is more than well equipped. You notice that the owners use to stay there. There are books, dvds, cds and useful brochures and… More

It is not true to say there are no towels. There is a basket of towels in the wetroom and a drawer of tea towels in the kitchen. It is only bath towels that are not usually supplied. As far as parking is concerned it is an old fishing village and parking is limited immediately outside the cottage but there are plenty spaces nearby. We stay often and it is quiet and peaceful. There is no ANNEXE in the Cottage.

"Quaint Cottage by the Sea"

This is a spacious, well stocked self catering cottage with wonderful views over the Firth of Forth from the balcony and is situated right at the shore. This was our third visit to this ideal retreat and hope to enjoy another stay there.
