Cosy cottage near Elie, golf, beaches, pet friendly, perfect base for East Neuk

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Colinsburgh, Fife, Scotland
Folly Cottage is more than 200 years old, named after a folly on the hill behind the house. It lies in Colinsburgh, a quaint East Neuk village full of pretty painted cottages with crow step gables. There are views over the beautiful Balcarres estate behind the property. There is a cosy kitchen diner, a comfortable living room with French doors out to the garden, and upstairs a very large double bedroom with ample storage space, and a smaller twin room. The pretty bathroom is upstairs too. Gas central heating and a wood burning stove have just been installed so it is very cosy. The sun trap garden has a full set of garden furniture, and a shed with barbecue set. Perfect for the school holidays!
This is a great base for exploring the East Neuk, with the beaches of Elie, golf courses, quirky shops, fine dining, countryside walks all within...

How to get there

This is a rural area where it will be easier to get around by car. There is a bus service from very close to the cottage, with links to Leven and Anstruther. There are train stations at Leuchars and Markinch, both about 25 minutes away by car. There is free parking at both stations and travelling by train is the best way to have a day out in Edinburgh as parking in the city is not easy.

There is free on street parking just outside the cottage in Colinsburgh.
