“Simply fabulous!!!”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Great location to explore the East Neuk of Fife. The house is tucked away just a short walk from the harbor, and it was quiet and peaceful with a lovely garden area. I would love to be able to live there for a while, and hope to return in the not too distant future.

“Should be renames "TARDIS" - Huge inside!”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a short break with mutt, son and brother in law. St Monans is a beautiful unspoilt village but still with lots to do and see within 25 miles. Cottage has absolutely everything you need but no WiFi ( brilliant). Very comfortable! Will certainly go again.

“A little bubble of calm”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed 1st-5th June. Weather was not great ,but the cottage was beautiful everything we needed. kitchen had everything available just had to add food and drink. I only cooked breakfasts. The sausages from farm shop are delicious. To get back to cottage it was like stepping through the gate into a secret garden which led to cottage. enclosed small garden which was lovely. Wooden floors throughout easy to clean and great since we have 2 standard poodles and as I said weather was windy and wet on 2 days. Bedrooms beautiful and largest bathroom is simply stunning. We had a lovely relaxing calm holiday as we had no internet and no phone reception so you had time to read and chill. Will definitely visit again.

“Brilliant,well situated and full of character”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

St Monans is delightful, away from the crowds in Elie, quiet and friendly
West shores is a delightful cottage,and even with a small toddler it was very convenient, comfortable with facilities of washer dryer and dishwasher made the holiday easy.
The upstairs living room would be great for older kids and having a garden made all the difference.
We look forward to returning.
