From the owner

Helena Cottage is a lovely 2-bedroom detached cottage located in the picturesque village of Elie. Located at the Earlsferry end of Elie, it is in a quiet location just off Links Rd next to the golf course. It is just a two minute walk from the award winning blue flag sandy beach and the well regarded 19th Hole Bar and Restaurant. It is an ideal holiday base for couples and families alike to enjoy Elie & all that Fife has to offer.

Having been recently refurbished and upgraded, the cottage is fully double-glazed (EPC C), has free wifi, and comprises open plan lounge/dining/kitchen with extendable dining room table & chairs and solid oak hardwood flooring. The contemporary fitted kitchen includes a new gas hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher, new fridge with freezer compartment, and all the new crockery/glasses and kitchenware you could need for your stay. The lounge is also very comfortable, with a 4-seater corner sofa bed (can sleep 2), wall mounted freeview TV, and DAB radio.

Off the hallway is the king bedroom, through which you reach the adjoining twin bedroom - both are well furnished, with alarm/clock radio and hairdryer in main double bedroom, and wall-mounted TV with built-in DVD player in the twin bedroom. Also off the hallway is the refurbished bathroom with excellent shower.

Patio doors open out to the small sheltered courtyard garden, with table and chairs for relaxing in the sun - a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Elie's typically sunny weather.

Laundry facilities are provided, with washer/dryer in the utility store, iron/board/hi-dri available and outdoor washing line. The property also has a travel cot and high-chair available on request. 7 nights for price of 6 year-round.

The cottage is all on the ground level and located down a short gravely footpath, so offers a nice quiet stay, suitable for all ages. Small dogs welcome, and subject to an additional fee of £25. If you would like to bring your dog, please advise this in inquiry, so that can amend quote accordingly.

Elie has a lot to offer - golf, tennis, putting, library, bowling, bike hire, watersports centre, beach activities, coastal walks including the famous "chain walk" and of course there are a number of wonderful local restaurants, cafes and pubs. As well as nearby St Andrews which is only a 20 minute drive away. Elie is a perfect location for exploring the East Neuk of Fife.
