Good location for us as we were attending a wedding at St Monans Kirk. Eating places were good. Close to St Andrews and other interesting places.

“Lilac Cottage - Fabulous!”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed 5 days at Lilac Cottage. Cottage was beautiful, comfortable and had everything we required for our stay. The weather was really cold but the heating in the cottage was fantastic. Had wonderful sleeps - bed was super comfy and there was plenty of wardrobe space. The shower was super and I could go on and on. My husband and myself were very impressed.

“Pure comfort”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My dad booked this for Easter brake for a family gathering in St Monans.
The property was very clean and attention to detail was excellent. The best touch was the pack that had a fresh sponge and cloth in it. As someone who can be a bit anal about germs this was an excellent thought.
The twin room was comfortable my only grumble here is the beds skated about on the wheels and could perhaps do with a brake.
The kitchen is a fine size and spotless. The shower is lovely and powerful and a dream after a long journey in the car.
Our room, the master bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and true bliss to sleep in. So much so I wish I was in it now.
Other nice touches were the candles and set fire in the sitting room, which once lit made for a very cozy night in.
We loved the polka dot throw and the master bedroom throw so much we would love to know where they came from.
We were more than happy with the price as it is very reasonable for what you get.
At the bottom of the road is a very good garden center and costal path. If you walk along to St Monans you will pass the windmill.

One thing that some may find a issue is the road traffic noise can be very loud, once you get used to it, it is not to bad. It would not stop me from coming back to this property.

“A lovely and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Enjoyed our stay at Lilac Cottage. Everything just as described in the advert. Spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything needed for a pleasant holiday break. Didn't have to use the fire but the central heating is available if required. Only negative is the traffic noise from the adjacent road but we soon got used to it and it didn't spoil our stay. Would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a base to explore the East Neuk of Fife.

Many thanks for your feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed your visit to Lilac Cottage. We're pleased to advise that new windows are going to be installed at the front of the cottage this Autumn which should reduce any noise from the road.
