“Lovely home”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Three generations and two spaniels had a fantastic holiday in this lovely home. Six adults and four teenagers had plenty of room , bedrooms beautiful and beds comfortable . Upstairs kitchen and living space was perfect for any time of the day, surrounding area had great walks and plenty of things to do.

“A great house in a great location”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Bakerswell House at the end of May with my daughter and family and two friends and loved the house and surrounding area. The house has been very imaginatively re-designed to provide very comfortable and spacious accommodation. The lay-out is quirky but that only adds to the charm of the house. The 5 bedrooms are all of a good size, the downstairs cloakroom is great for storing coats and shoes out of the way and right by the front door, the laundry room with washer and drier is a real boon. but the star of the house is the enormous kitchen/dining area with doors to the outside decking. This room evoked the 'Wow' response from everyone on arrival. The adults spent most time here, while the children took over the downstairs lounge where they could
watch DVDs. We all commented on how 'at home' we felt as soon as we arrived and were sorry to leave.
The house is very well located only a few minutes walk from the seafront and from the centre of Anstruther with shops and restaurants. A visit to the famous fish & chip shop is a must - and eating them sitting outside by the harbour is the way to do it if weather permits. There is loads to do in the area. Son-in-law and grandsons loved their trip out to the Isle of May despite a rough crossing ; we all found the Secret bunker visit fascinating and St Andrews is only a short drive away. Miley the dog absolute loved running on the sands there and everyone enjoyed a half day walk to Crail along the coastal path.
My only caveat would be that the house is on 3 levels so might not be suitable for anyone with restricted mobility. Otherwise I can thoroughly recommend it.

I have noted that the quality of the beds was not good, but have been in touch with the owner on this and she has said that she is going to change the mattresses which were problematic so this should not be a problem for future guests.

“LARGE COMFORTABLE HOME”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing in this house. There were 7 adults of differing ages and we found we had loads of room and never felt we were on top of each other. The dining kitchen is huge and is a great place to sit in as there are 2 seperate seated areas, we spent a lot of time here. Beds and bathrooms both excellent. Thoroughly recommended. Easy walking distance to town centre in Anstruther.
5 star.

“quirky, interesting house....perfect for a group getaway”
Reviewed June 24, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We recently stayed here with extended family.........house was perfect, even in the horrendous Scottish summer! Cozy downstairs living room for the rainy evenings and large bright well equipped dining kitchen for laughs round the big table!

Great stay, would love to return

“Interesting ,very comfortable stay with very helpful owner.”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

At the very last minute we decided to meet up with my son and his young family in Anstruther and Karen could not have been more helpful and friendly in making our short break easy to arrange. The house is big , quirky and very comfortable with lots of sociable spaces and many good sized bedrooms with quality beds. We particularly enjoyed the spa bath and outdoor terrace in a real sun trap at the rear.
The sea is seconds away and all the town centre eateries are a five minute walk . The Fife coast path goes by the front door along very cute James St.
A great stay which we intend to repeat some day
