Winner of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014.

Set in the landscaped grounds of the magnificent 17th century Elie House, this beautiful villa near St Andrews is your boutique holiday home in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. Sleeping up to ten, Treescape offers style and luxury in a land of sandy beaches and challenging golf links.

Inside, the house is beautifully furnished and equipped. There are five bedrooms in all: one master with ensuite and king-size bed and Tempur mattress; three further bedrooms can be set-up with either twin beds or as super-kings; and a fifth bedroom with handcrafted oak bunks and full-size Tempur mattresses. One bedroom is on the ground floor and has its own ensuite. A signature feature of Treescape is the ultra-soft, very high thread count cotton sheets, while Cowshed toiletries can be found in all three bathrooms.

Every room in the house has floor-to-ceiling windows, facing either east to catch the morning rays or west to watch the sun sink slowly behind the trees.

The large lounge features a choice of supremely comfortable sofas, swivel recliners, stools and huge beanbags. The dining room connects both lounge and kitchen and seats up to ten. Everything in the generous kitchen has been chosen for the keen cook, from the Siemens appliances to the Sabatier knives and heavy duty pots and pans to the fantastic Kitchen Aid mixer.

The advanced technology includes a wall-mounted smart TV in every bedroom, a full Sky package, including sport and movies, and three Blu Ray players; one in the lounge, one in the master bedroom and the third in the bunk room.

Outside, guests have seven acres of private grounds to explore; landscaped gardens and wild woodland are a haven for wildlife and there are mountain bikes and wetsuits in the shed.

Treescape is our own holiday home and is available only when we're not here. We hope you love it as much as we do.

About this location

The Fife region

Beyond Elie lies the rest of the Neuk and the fishing villages of St Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail. Though they all share a similar style of architecture, with whitewashed crow-stepped gables and red pan-tile roofs, each village has its own character, from bustling Anstruther (and reputedly Britain's best chippie) to picturesque Crail.

Pittenweem is famed for its annual arts festival, which takes over the town every August, while Crail has its own food festival every June, highlighting Fife's long tradition of sustainable, artisan foods.

Then, of course, there is St Andrews. Only 20 minutes away along quiet back roads, this town is a masterpiece of learning, culture, history and, of course, golf. Here you'll find the Old Course, the R&A and plenty of places to buy that new driver or cashmere sweater.

As a world-renowned university town, the constant influx of students and visitors from around the globe gives St Andrews a cosmopolitan air too, with smart bistros and restaurants, sharing the streets with funky coffee shops and cool bars.

The West Sands at St Andrews, backing onto the Old Course, is a long, long stretch of golden sand. Backed by dunes it's famous for the slow-mo running scene in Chariots of Fife, later so memorably spoofed by Mr Bean at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

And if you're here for a week or more, you'll find all the style, culture and history of Edinburgh is a little over an hour away.


Treescape is situated in the beautiful East Neuk village of Elie. This region has long been a favoured holiday destination, with stunning coastal walks, picturesque villages and the town of St Andrews only a short drive away.

Elie itself is a gorgeous little village, famous for its two-mile long crescent of golden sand and far-reaching views towards Bass Rock and the East Lothian coastline. The main street is home to a wonderful deli, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a great local pub and numerous gift shops, cafes and ice-cream parlours.

The Ship Inn on the harbour wall draws people from all over Fife and well beyond, for its great pub food and terrace overlooking the sea. If you time your visit right, you could be supping a pint of real ale in the sunshine while you tuck into a barbecued lunch and watch a game of beach cricket.

Ardross Farm Shop, just five minutes drive from Treescape, is one of the UK's finest with its own farm-reared beef, as well as lamb, venison, local fruit and vegetables and a great range of deli items, including a fine selection of wines and local craft ales.

"Stunning property in magnificent grounds."

This is truly a luxury property with every facility you could ever want and very stylishly presented. It looks good, feels good and by jolly it does you good! The setting amongst manicured lawns and… More

We're blushing over here! Seriously though, many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. Your description of the wildlife and the beautiful combination of woodland and open spaces chime so perfectly with the way we view Treescape and the wider Elie House estate. We love being there - and we love that you did too!

We had an amazing stay at Treescape. We were there for 2 weeks with our 4 kids - age 10 - 24 as well as their grandparents. It was a full house but it never felt that way as there is plenty of space… More

Hi there. Thank you for your kind words. Yes, we have put a lot of thought into Treescape, mainly because we wanted to create somewhere we ourselves would love! It's not often you get to start with a blank canvas but we could here at Treescape. Great that you made the most of the neighbourhood. Elie is a special place and we're delighted you share our good feelings about the place.

"As Mary Poppins would say "Practically Perfect in Every Way!""

Except I'd go one further and say perfect in every way.We returned from a family holiday bringing together six adults and four children. Our stay at Treescape Elie was simply wonderful! From t… More

In a busy first year at Treescape and with lots of lovely reviews, I think this may be just about the nicest we've received! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a considered review. We're particularly pleased that we were able to give you such a favourable first experience of Scotland. We hope it won't be your last!

"Perfect in every way!"

We have just returned from a family celebration at TREESCAPE in Elie. With contemporary homes or hotels, it is very rare to find form and function in equal measure - treescape handles both of these p… More

What can I say? Your review has left us humbled - but very pleased! All along we have tried to create a holiday villa we'd be delighted to stay in ourselves (which, of course, we do!). We've taken care over both the big picture and the little details; the sort of things that make a stay truly memorable. We're so glad you share our belief in going the extra mile. Thanks again.

"Best holiday accommodation we've stayed at"

Fantastic location and stunning property. Luxury for very reasonable price. Perfect for a group get away. Kitchen has obviously been kitted out by a person who loves to cook. No real negatives!… More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We're particularly pleased that you mentioned the kitchen as that is one of the features we took great care over. And, yes, one of us does love to cook - and I certainly love eating her food! Thanks Simon

"1st Class Luxury Rental Property"

This villa is a real credit to the owners, having hired houses around the country, I must say Treescape in probably the best we've been too. In terms of layout, finishing and setting, it is fi… More

Thanks so much for your great review. It's especially pleasing that you rate us so highly when you've stayed in a lot of other holiday properties. We certainly aim to maintain the highest possible standards and measure ourselves against the best on the market.

"Forget going abroad - Elie is the place to be."

Myself and my two friends and our children (ages from 8years to 5years) stayed during our half term break this February. All I can say was that it is one of the best holidays I have ever had. The re… More

Your words of praise are truly wonderful, thank you. The combination of the village, the beach, the peaceful Elie Estate and the house itself sang to us as soon as we saw Treescape last year. We're just so glad we can share our lovely home with lovely guests such as yourselves. Suffice to say, you're welcome back any time!

We stayed at Treescape in early November as part of a family birthday celebration. The house is beautiful and decorated to a very high standard. We ate out one night in St Andrews and cooked in anot… More

Thanks for your lovely review and we're so glad you had such a good time. Ardross Farm Shop is rather fab isn't it? We look forward to seeing you again.

"Excellent retreat for business brainstorming"

We were a group of colleagues working on our 2014 brand and markeing plans. Treescape offered the perfect accomodation, beds, bedrooms, great meeting space, a creative environment with wonderful natur… More

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Treescape. Interesting to hear that this was a business trip rather than a leisure one. I'm glad however that the house proved just as appealing for work purposes. Certainly the setting and sense of peace and quiet is great for those times when you need space to think and plan. We're really pleased you felt everything you needed was on-hand. Good luck with your marketing plans for the year ahead.

"Luxurious family accommodation in beautiful surroundings, conven"

Four generations of our family visited Treescape to celebrate a 90th birthday. We were delighted by the high quality welcome hamper which was very much enjoyed by us all. The property was finished to … More

I was so delighted when you chose Treescape for such a wonderful celebration. I'm even more delighted that we lived up to your expectations. Thanks too for commenting on the details such as fluffy towels and media systems. These are the touches that, hopefully, set us apart. Thanks again.
