Location description from owner

The Fife region

The house is ideal for anyone looking for a a short break or a longer stay on Scotland's sunny east coast. Discover fantastic beaches (which rank among Britain's best), visit the world home of golf in St Andrews, explore the delightful East Neuk fishing villages, or venture further to visit the historic capital of Dunfermline. You can also sample some great fish and chips - Britain's best chippy is on the seafront in Anstruther!

The region is ideal for golfers of all abilities with many golf courses in and around St Andrews, including Kingsbarns and the Old Course, both of which hosted the 2008 Dunhill Cup. There is a course in Anstruther itself, 2 courses in Crail, as well as Elie and Lundin Links.

The area is also ideal for walking, the whole East Neuk coastline is covered by the Fife Coastal Path which is beautiful as far as Lundin Links in the West and St Andrews and beyond in the East/North. Buses run regularly along the coast so you can either take the bus and walk back to Anstruther or vice versa.

Anstruther

In Anstruther itself, visit the Scottish Fisheries Museum, or take a boat trip out to the isle of May. Enjoy the local beaches, take time out at one of the many excellent seafront cafes, stroll round the harbour or take a walk along the coastal path. There is a golf course 10 minutes walk away, a children's playground and tennis courts just next to the house.

It's worth a trip to some of the other East Neuk villages, particularly Pittenweem , which still has a fishing fleet and a fishmarket during the week. During August the village hosts an excellent Arts Festival. Also Crail and St Monans are worth a visit.

St Andrews is a beautiful university town with much history and excellent cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. For kids, the best beach is the West Sands which is right alongside the Old Course. The aquarium is very good and a great rainy-day option. There is also a good swimming pool at the East Sands Leisure Centre. St Andrews Botanic gardens are lovely on a nice day.

For watersports enthusiasts, or beginners, there is a good watersports centre in Elie.

There are several outstanding beaches in the area:

- Kingsbarns – a blue flag beach with lots of interesting rock pools for the children plus beautiful sand and views

- Tentsmuir Forest – a bit more of a drive but quite spectacular. A large nature reserve where the forest goes right to the beach. On the north side of the beach are seal colonies. Horse riding is available here, it is also excellent for cycling.

- Elie – a wide flat beach on which cricket is played on summer Sundays. The Ship Inn (with beer garden)overlooks the beach and offers excellent food and drink.

“Great Accommodation in a great location.”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2015

The property had all the facilities we required for a brilliant holiday. The location in Anstruther was perfect for the local shops, restaurants and harbour. A first class rental accommodation. We would certainly use it again.

“Perfect place for a lovely relaxing break”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2014

Well kept, modern and spacious property in a quiet courtyard setting. Great location with all the other coastal villages being easy to reach. Had a great time exploring the area. Booking process was excellent. Would have no hesitation in recommending this property and will definitely return for another visit. Thank you Helen everything was perfect

“An amazing adventure!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2014

Great week spent at this house. Loved how clean and fresh smelling it was. Very comfortable. Beds very comfy. Loved having the two en suites plus an extra toilet. Location was great. So many things to see. To top it off weather was awesome. Some beautiful beaches were visited. Very close to St Andrews which is worth a visit. Will def revisit.

“Lovely house in a lovely village!”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2014

We chose this house for a break with family, and really enjoyed our stay. The house has everything you need, and is in an ideal location - beside the main road into the village but in a quiet courtyard so not noisy at all. The house is welcoming and comfortable, and it kitted out with everything you need, even if you do decide to cook and not sample the famous Anstruther Fish n Chips or any of the lovely restaurants in the village or within a short drive to one of the other East Neuk villages.

“Fabulous house and location excellent”

Reviewed 7 May 2014

Booking was very easy the owner sent good instructions and key was there on arrival. This property has everything you would expect in a home. Very clean and kept in very good condition, each room has a en suite which is useful when traveling with family. The location is excellent as the property is only minutes away from the harbour area with bars and restaurants close by all within easy walking distance. There are some lovely beaches close by certainly worth a look and the food in the restaurants and bars did not disappoint. The owner has a guide book which is full of useful information on both the property and local area highlighting places of interest for the traveller. We had a very enjoyable weekend and would not hesitate to book again, I have already passed the details to friends who intend to book soon.

“Fabulous understated accommodation”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2014

We had a lovely time in this slim built town house, very near the village centre of Anstruther (5 mins walking distance). It was clean, very well equipped and everything worked! It was a great base for day trips to St Andrews, Crail and Elie, we even popped into St Monans. The dining facilities were more than adequate for our family of 5 as was the sleeping arrangements (both bedrooms with en suite with an additional bathroom). We hope to return one day!

“Perfect for us”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

Arriving at 23 Crail Rd, both my partner and her teenage daughter were bowled over by the property, it had so many aspects that were just right for us, both in size and facilities that we all just loved staying there. As we had relatives and friends to see, with only four days to do it all, we didn't have much time for sightseeing. We hosted a new years day dinner for my mother, brother and the three of us. There was plenty of room, cutlery, crockery and cooking facilities to make this fairly simple and very effective. As we often use holiday homes in both the UK and Europe, it was very gratifying to see that everything had been carefully thought of, and provided, meaning no need to dash to the shops for anything other than our food. Top marks all round for this.

“Lovely cottage in the heart of Anstruther!”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2012

Lovely cottage with plenty of amenities right in the center of town. This was a perfect place for our friends and I as we had a wedding right in town. Would recommend for a long or short holiday! Very clean and well appointed.
