Guest Reviews


    • “A lovely big house full of character not mod cons. In a beautiful part of the country with plenty to see and do. Great pub/restaurant and good transport links also.”

    Mr Connolly, Glasgow, December 2014

    • “This was an interesting character property, really spacious, very close to local attractions and a good centre for exploring other areas too.”

    Miss Ridding, Fairford, September 2014

    • “Eight adults stayed at this cottage and it suited us extremely well. It was very clean, well appointed and very well equipped. The rooms are large with extremely comfortable and good furniture and in many ways the photographs on your website did not do it justice. We loved the dining table next to the kitchen and spent most our time in there.”

    Ms Mitchell, Glasgow, May 2014

    • “This is a lovely house in a lovely location. It is within a good distance from Edinburgh and the central highlands. There is a lot to do in the area of Anstruther. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the house, the extra small living room was an added bonus. Being able to take a dog was great and the secure garden was lovely. Despite visiting in early spring the house soon warmed up due to good central heating and we enjoyed the open fire!”

    Mrs Hickman, Camberley, April 2014

About the location


St Andrews 10 miles; Cupar 16 miles; Edinburgh 50 miles.

Anstruther is the principal village on Fife’s East Neuk coast and was formerly two distinct burghs, Anstruther West and East. The two parts of the village are divided by the Dreel Burn. Anstruther was originally founded as a fishing village and played a major role in the Scottish herring industry. The history is well documented in the Scottish Fisheries Museum sitting alongside the attractive and busy harbour. Now popular with tourists, Anstruther offers many cafes, bars, galleries and restaurants including the award-winning Anstruther Fish Bar, and tourists sit around the harbour enjoying their traditional fish and chips. The harbour is now home to the many pleasure craft offering trips along the coast or to the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth to view the puffin and seal colonies. Across the Forth is Edinburgh and this is easily accessed by car or public transport for an exciting day out. Another popular attraction is the Secret Bunker, a former Cold War nuclear bunker now open to the public. With beautiful coastal walks, the proximity of many golf courses, including St Andrews, Anstruther has so much to offer the visitor.
