Description

Built in 1790, a matter of months after the Bastille was stormed, this ancient cottage is located across the slipway from Dreel Tavern, the historic centre of Anstruther Wester and just 200 metres from the harbour, beach and Anstruther's many cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops.The fully renovated cottage is warm and spacious and benefits from being adjacent to the Dreel Tavern which numbers amongst the best food and drink establishments in town. High fibre wireless broadband is also provided. The cottage sleeps 4, however 2 additional single beds are available at extra cost so the property can sleep a maximum of 6 - ideal for larger families. Many of our guests bring their pets (small supplement of £5/day) owing to the large walled and secure rear garden which is laid to lawn and which gives on to the slipway leading to a safe leafy walk along the riverbank well away from traffic. The garden is glorious in sunny weather in the spring and summer as it overlooks the famous Dreel Burn (4th

The garden is glorious in sunny weather in the spring and summer as it overlooks the famous Dreel Burn (4th image) and the very spot where the peripatetic King James V of Scotland was assisted over the burn by a gypsy woman with unintended consequences as the disputed event led to the formation of the world's first sex club in the seventeenth century.Weekly lets are from Saturday to Saturday. Short breaks can be booked outwith high season but must either start on a Saturday or end on or before a Saturday.

Location description from owner

The Fife region

Extending south of St Andrews as far as Largo Bay, Fife's East Neuk (or 'corner') is most famous for its incredibly picturesque fishing villages such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie.

Well patronised by holidaymakers and weekenders, the area's various restaurants are one of its highlights, with freshly landed seafood a speciality, but often complemented by produce gleaned from the fertile Fife farmland that rolls off pleasantly into the hinterland.

Anstruther

Anstruther is an atmospheric fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife, popular with day-trippers and holidaymakers.

Anstruther is the largest in a string of pretty, old-fashioned fishing villages along the stretch of Fife coast known as the East Neuk. Perhaps the top attraction of the place is simply tucking into a quality fish supper from a renowned establishment on the front, tossing chips to the seagulls and watching the fishing boats come in with their catch.

Boat trips to the Isle of May, several miles offshore in the Firth of Forth, run from May to September, for seeing puffins, seals and other wildlife. On dry land is the fascinating Scottish Fisheries Museum.

“Lovely spacious, clean cottage in excellent location with helpful owner”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

The cottage was clean and had every thing a family on holiday could need. The pub next door does not adjoin and was no issue. We had two weeks of good weather and had fun exploring Ansruther and surrounding villages and beaches. our children aged 11 and 9 enjoyed crab fishing in a Crail, boat trip to the Ilse of May to see puffins, eating lobsters at the smokehouse in St Monans and visiting the art festival in pit tween , surfing at Elie. Good choice of places to eat and only 15 minutes to St. Andrews . All villages allowed fishing in the historic piers and locals very friendly. Brilliant location and house for family holiday . House much larger then pictures appear. Definitely value for money.
