  • "The property is beautiful, spacious and only a 10 minute leisurely walk to the harbour."

    It would have been nice if a welcome pack had been included or a least a bottle of milk as all you want after a long drive is a hot drink. Also we were surprised that there were no oven gloves which was a cause for concern when taking hot trays out of the oven. Although the weather was kind to us if it had rained there wasn’t anywhere to hang wet coats so a clothes airer would be a useful. The bathrooms could do with some larger mirrors. Apart from these gripes we had a wonderful time and would love to return.

    It is very well positioned in Anstruther and within easy walking distance to all amenities. A nice walk down to the harbour and restaurants but nice and peaceful at the house. I would certainly recommend holibobs to my family and friends.

  • "Excellent. house & facilities as god as expected."

    some tips for the owner: 1. towel rail in downstairs toilet is loose. mirror wd be nice. 2. en-suite bathroom : a. no easy mirror for shaving. i had to prop the little round one into the window handle and make sure i didnt open the window. b. no soap holder in the otherwise best shower ive used for ages. tiny suggestions which in no way marred a lovely stay in a lovely house.

  • "The house is very welcoming."

    The open plan downstairs is perfect for large families all feeling they are together without being on top of one another. The house was very clean and very well equipped which always makes the holiday go well. Excellent location with a children's playground across the road and the sea/beach within 5 minutes walk. We traveled along the coast, there was so much to see and do within 25 minutes. Anstruther had lots of lovely restaurants. Would definitely go back. we. had a great holiday

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.
