Could not be any closer to the sea. Wonderful views across the Forth to Edinburgh with ever changing scenes from every aspect. Particularly perfect from the verandah with a drink! The super welcome hamper from the owner was a great surprise and much appreciated. The cottage was very comfortable and cosy and had everything we could want. It is very handy for the local shops and also for the terrific Leisure Centre with pool and flume just across the beach. My wife and I found it ideal for exploring the Fife coast with all its lovely coves and harbours. We had a very easy trip to Edinburgh by train across the iconic Forth Bridge - no parking worries! We are really looking forward to returning with our children.
beautiful cottage fantastic location views from every window very well maintained lovely welcome from Elaine and a surprise complimentary hamper from owner cliff plus owner asked if we like to stay for another night we will definitely return without question.
I only wish it were closer! its not often you get excellent accommodation in a fabulous location but you do at seaside cottage. The sitting room is lovely, comfortable and spacious with views over the water. The best and most used room in the house. A sheltered patio outside the sitting room. The beds were all very comfortable., not often the case in holiday rentals! The kitchen is snug but has everything you need. All very clean. I cannot think of anything we needed that wasn't provided. My 12 year old son enjoyed the jigsaws. He spent a lot of time on the rocks beyond the house looking for crabs, fished off the garden wall and caught more crabs. And we were able to watch him from the patio!
There is a small sandy beach, with lifeguards on one side of the house and a rocky beach the other, both good for walking the dog. At the end of the beach is a leisure centre with flumes and tidal wave, clean and free for kids under 17 in the school holiday. Pitches and courts are available to rent, £1 for a wristband which gave you access all day. Town just 5 minutes walk, with all you need there. Train station was walking distance and took 30 minutes into Edinburgh. A large green area behind the house, with play park and in the summer a funfair (however, we couldn't hear this from the house!)
We were met and seen off by Jim who was extremely helpful, providing local information and showing us the house.
This is a little gem of a holiday cottage but don't tell anyone or we will never be able to make a booking!
Thank you for a great week.
