“Family Holiday - interesting property”
Reviewed February 15, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Parking an issue - tight streets and busy at certain times, not a major issue.

Interesting layout of house and met our needs perfectly.

Five bedrooms with access to 3 bathrooms made life easy.

Plenty of living space for a group of 6 adults & 4 children.

Close to harbour/beach, excellent for kids.

Good communication from owner.

“Comfortable wonderful house”
Reviewed January 20, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Bakerswell was a lovely, warm and welcoming house. We loved staying there. It was large enough for 10 while being very cosy. The beds were very comfortable and all our guests mentioned how great they slept. Lovely clean smelling bedding & towels which is a important touch me :-) It is very modern and has wonderful features (Well & Bakers oven). Anstruther is such a lovely place to stay. I hope to stay again in the future

Thank you for the feedback on the beds - buying mattresses on-line; I had been concerned that they would not be comfortable-They obviously were :-).

“Perfect for golf groups!”
Reviewed September 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were four males from Canada staying for a week to golf all over the region. Anstruther is very central for this purpose making most of our day trips fairly short. The house itself is large with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and has an enormous dining area (with well equipped kitchen) where we spent a good deal of our time when at home. The television area was also well used by us. The house was modern in every way, and did not disappoint. Having WiFi was fantastic. We had one problem with the internet, but the owner saw to it immediately. It was a 5 minute walk to the harbour, where numerous restaurants and pubs were located, and no more than 10 minutes to the more distant ones. Ilsa, who looked after the house for the owner, let us in when we arrived, was friendly and had the place clean and ready for us. We will definitely be booking Bakerswell again.

“Almost Perfect”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Excellent house for 9 adults with plenty of space and imaginative decor.
One of the party was elderly and would have been helped by handrails on the stairs (the house is on three levels).
The beds and pillows are past their best and should be replaced to match the calibre of the property; unfortunately in one twin room the cleanliness of the bedding was poor. The property has a garage which couldn't be used. As our party had 3 cars it would have saved difficulties finding a parking space nearby.
Despite these issues, the house is amazing and would recommend it as ideal for a large number of guests (perhaps take your own pillows).

“Great house, Great location”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Lovely house that blends old with new. The kitchen/dinner was fabulous, and this is where we spent most of our time. The location in Anstruther was brilliant, a short stroll to the harbour. The house suited our requirements perfectly the way the bedrooms and bathrooms are arranged over three floors. Some aspect's particularly in the kitchen were a bit tired and need a good clean. Some of the equipment needs replacing. The toaster doesn't turn off and frying pan was disgusting so couldn't be used. None the less a great time was had by all.

“Fantastic holiday home”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Excellent size for 10 adults and 1 toddler. Excellent location. House quirky on 5 levels with a well and a bakers oven. Very clean and thoroughly recommend this house. Will certainly think about going back when next in the area.

“Lovely spacious house, perfect for a family or group”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The house was surprisingly spacious and has been cleverly modernised with great use of space and natural light. The kitchen dining area was fantastic and the only negative point was the weather as it prevented us from using the decking and would have been perfect for a barbecue.
Anstruther although small with limited shops was lovely and has plenty of good restaurants and pubs and perfect for a relaxing break.

The house has great facilities and the welcome pack with a bottle of Prosecco , filter coffee for the coffee machine and various other goodies was greatly appreciated. I would certainly recommend this property and would happily book this house again.
