    • “We just loved this cottage. Everything from its spectacular location to the unbelievable amenities and the joy we felt when we first walked through the door. I can't speak highly enough about this cottage. St Monans is a lovely location and it was an ideal spot to see Fife. If ever we go back I would not stay anywhere else.”

    • “The cottage was well equipped and beautifully decorated. The owners had left a welcoming bottle of wine. Luxurious bedrooms and all amenities required for a stress-free stay.Slight problem with a damp stain in the dining room meaning the light did not operate, but a minor point.The information folder was well thought out. The village was lovely and right on the sea. Friendly villagers, especially in the village shop. We had a relaxing time and would visit again with no hesitation.”

About the location


Anstruther 3 miles; St Andrews 12 miles; Edinburgh 45 miles.

St Monans takes its name from St Monance who was killed by raiding Danes in approx 875, and is one of a collection of picturesque, traditional fishing villages in Fife’s beautiful East Neuk or ‘corner’. The village has a pub/hotel, award-winning restaurant and a café. It also has a fish merchant and a traditional fish smokehouse as well as superb views over the Firth of Forth. Just along the coast is the equally attractive village of Anstruther which is home to not only the Scottish Fisheries Museum giving a fascinating insight into the fishing industry in Scotland but also the renowned and award winning fish and chip bar. A short drive away is St Andrews, the home of golf and also Falkland village, with its spectacular palace. Slightly further afield is Tentsmuir Forest National Nature Reserve which consists of some 50 square miles of dunes, heath, lochs, forest and a large variety of wildlife. With Edinburgh only 40 miles away and easily reachable train or car, St Monans truly has something for everyone.
