From the owner

Folly Cottage is more than 200 years old, named after a folly on the hill behind the house. It lies in Colinsburgh, a quaint East Neuk village full of pretty painted cottages with crow step gables. There are views over the beautiful Balcarres estate behind the property. There is a well-equipped kitchen diner, a comfortable living room with smart TV and French doors out to the garden, and upstairs a very large double bedroom with ample storage space, and a smaller twin room. The pretty bathroom is upstairs too. The wifi signal is excellent, perfect for keeping in touch with family or if you have a bit of work to do.Gas central heating and a wood burning stove have just been installed so it is very cosy if the weather is a little damp. The sun trap garden has a full set of garden furniture for drinks and meals, and a shed with barbecue set. Perfect for the school holidays!

This is a great base for exploring the East Neuk, with the beaches of Elie, golf courses, quirky shops, fine dining, countryside walks all within a few minutes drive. Trips to the Highlands, Perthshire, the V&A in Dundee and Edinburgh are easy from here.

Colinsburgh itself has a shop, a pub, the only local garage, and a community cinema in the Town Hall. It is 5 minutes walk to Charlton golf course, and just a little further to the 2 courses in Elie. Of course St Andrews, home of golf, is just 15 minutes by car, and you have 7 courses there to choose from. Local supermarkets are well stocked and uncrowded, and many cafes are doing takeaway already if you don't want to cook.

Pittenweem has galleries and cafes including the outstanding Cocoa Tree, with fabulous hot chocolate. The East Pier Smokehouse and Craig Millar's restaurant 16 are in St Monans for fine dining. The Cheese Farm is just along the road, for more than cheese, great lunches too. Ardross Farm shop can supply every need and Barnett's artisan breads are justly famous - feta and beetroot is one of my favourites. Kellie Castle with its wonderful garden is well worth a visit. Genteel Crail along the coast tempts with teashops and souvenirs. There's fresh and smoked fish from St Monans, and Balgove Farm Shop on the edge of St Andrews. There's something for everyone.

The cottage will be sanitized for each new set of guests and check-in is via a key in the key safe so no need to meet anyone unless you want to.
