    “Lovely spacious cottage”

    We loved this gorgeous cottage in St Monans We holidayed here with our lovely dog and everyone and everything was so dog friendly ...

    We loved this gorgeous cottage in St Monans We holidayed here with our lovely dog and everyone and everything was so dog friendly. The cottage was warm, comfortable, well equipped and in a great position backing onto the common. Would’ve just liked a small bin in the bathroom and complete loo rolls to begin the holiday not bits of rolls, but not docking a star for that. We loved Fife and everything so handy to visit. The beaches are to die for especially in Elie, Kingsbarns and Tentsmuir forest park. Loads to do in a fairly small area really and all lovely and dog friendly. Try the smoked gin at East pier smokehouse in St. Monans or a local craft beer sitting on the pier side with the dog, lovely and very picturesque and relaxing. The local shop just around the corner is really handy too, and Ardross farm shop products are to die for especially the steak pies. Lovely cottage, great area and amenities we will be back. Thank you

The cottage

This pleasant, terraced cottage lies in the traditional fishing village of St Monans in Fife, Scotland.

Use The Beacon as your homely base whilst you explore the wonderful attractions and activities that sit nearby.

As you enter the property, to your right rests the comforting sitting room, lovingly finished with cosy couches, a warming fire and a TV to sit and watch when you're not out exploring the surrounding area of East Fife.

Double doors bring you into the rustic kitchen/diner, graced with wooden fixtures and fittings and a dining table for four, neatly tucked into the corner of the room.

The ground floor is also occupied by a cloakroom and a utility for your convenience, which leads towards the back garden.

The carpeted staircase brings you to the glistening family shower room on a half landing, decorated in glossy white to give a feeling of class.

Get your rest in one of the two comfortable bedrooms under the eaves on the first floor, both provide plenty of storage for your clothes and belongings.

To the back of the house rests a delightful enclosed courtyard, where you can treat yourself to a refreshing drink or perhaps some alfresco dining.

Through the back gate provides immediate access to St Monans common with public tennis court, football pitch and extensive playing area.

There is much going on in the area surrounding; St Monans offers a modest selection of amenities, along with an attractive marina and pier.

From here you can visit 'the home of golf' at St. Andrews, the awe-inspiring Lomond Hills Regional Park and even the capital city of Edinburgh is within driving distance for a day of elite shopping.

The Beacon is a splendid, well-positioned cottage to be enjoyed all-year-round.

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.
