The Fife region
The East Neuk of Fife is one of the most beautiful, coastal areas of Scotland. It has many recreational, sporting including water sports and golf, wildlife and historical amenities and the Fife coastal path has to be a walker's scenic paradise.
The villages along the East Neuk of Fife are a under publicised treasure. From Crail to Elie we have the beautiful harbours of villages like St Monans, Anstruther and Pittenweem. The Fife Coastal path, which stretches all along, this coast provides nature lovers with everything they could wish for in addition to the spectacular views of May Island, Bass Rock and Berwick Law.
St Andrews is a joy to visit for its historical background as much as its famous golf courses.
Falkland Palace is a historical treasure. You can have all this and also the peace and serenity of St Monans.
Bosun’s Cottage is situated on a very quiet cull de sac and only has the road between the property and the sea. It is about 20 minutes from St Andrews. St Monans itself is a small fishing village, which used to have Millers boat yard which built fairly substantial fishing boats. The harbour is very picturesque and as a relic of the past are the saltpans which in yesteryears were an active part of the local economy.
There are plenty of activities in the area: the Fife Coastal Path, seafood and other excellent restaurants, water sports are just 10 minutes away. There is a very famous restaurant in the village “The Seafood Restaurant” which also owns the Seafood Restaurant in St Andrews. The village is also fortunate to have an excellent restaurant at the Mayview Hotel. There are also many quality beaches ideal for children in the area
St Monans is very centrally placed being 20 minutes from St Andrews, under 10 minutes from Anstruther which has an excellent 9-hole golf course not to mention a good restaurant called “Rockies” at the club. Elie and Earlsferry and its beautiful golf course and the Elie Sports Club with tennis and bowls and a 9-hole golf course are also about 10 minutes away. There are over 20 golf courses within 15 miles.
Interesting to see the East Neuk Music Festival and the Pittenweem Art Festival.

"Perfect family home"
There were six adults and two small children. We had a ball. House was more than big enough for all of us and listening to the sea from your bed is bloody lovely.Kitchen is big as are the bedrooms and… More

Stayed in this seaside property whilst visiting family in the area. The views from the property are breathtaking and we had great weather which helped.
Very spacious accomodation for our party of mum, dad, grandma, two teenagers and dog.
The property was well equipped and had plenty of towlels and bedlinen. Could have done with some more glass tumblers and more cutlery but we just filled the dishwasher daily to address the shortfall.
Great showers in both bathrooms, but the flush on the toilet was very poor in the en suite and lead to us not using it for most of the stay.
Walks from the house were wonderful and we spent many happy hours exploring the the Fife coastal path.
Great farm shop a mile or so away and we also found a brilliant doggy daycare kennels about three miles away which enabled us to visit Edinburgh Zoo without the dog.
If you are looking for luxury this is not the house for you. But if you like fab views, long seaside walks, comfortable, warm, spacious, dog friendly accommodation then this house is perfect.
We would definitely return.

"A beautiful location, let down by details."
On an extended family break, the ground floor bedroom was ideal for aged parents lacking mobility. However, the top (third) floor bedroom, equipped with inset roof windows, could do with curtains. Sin… More

"great place for a group holiday"
this is a lovely property in a great location. My only complaint is that there is no T.V. downstairs for the use of wheelchair-bound holidaymakers. We had one problem which was very quickly dealt with by Debbie so full marks there.

"Handy relaxed accommodation with basic facilities"
Plenty of space but the furniture items were quite basic, including lounge room furniture and single beds. The toilet to the main bedroom was small, and upstairs rooms were sparsely furnished. Kitchen had most amenities and all appliances needed. Unusual to have washer and dryer on the top floor. It would suit a family staying for a few weeks, but not suited to executive accommodation.
Thank you for taking the time to review the property. We are pleased to report that the house has recently benefitted from some cosmetic improvements (including new carpets).

"Excellent spot for holiday with young children."
The let was arranged very professionally from start to finish. Communication was efficient. All of the family from grandparents to the youngest toddler had a great time. The property was well equipped and a cot and high chair supplied at no extra cost. The rock pools provided lots of fun for the children and the proximity to local beaches and golf courses meant that adults and children alike had plenty to do. We all liked the village atmosphere- peace, quiet and the sound of the waves meant we all slept extremely well. The back garden was rather small for youngsters to play in so we always had to take them out for a run about.
