Situated in Anstruther's conservation area, this delightful Georgian top (2nd) floor flat has been renovated to the highest standards with bespoke kitchen, wood burning stove and bay picture windows where you can look out onto the stunning views across the Firth of Forth. All that separates you from the sea is a cobbled walkway (no through traffic) and an old sea wall so you can fall asleep at night to the sound of the lapping waves and wake up to watch the tide from the comfort of your bed. The flat is ideally situated in the centre of Anstruther with all amenities on your doorstep. Perfect holidaying for those who enjoy golf, walking, cycling, birdwatching, sailing and going to the beach. Ideal for both families or romantic breaks.

I stayed for 3 nights during the festive period. The flat was the perfect location to reflect, contemplate and recharge. A real home from home. Beautifully decorated. Lovely wood burning stove. Thank you Jane for sharing this little piece of paradise with me.

About the neighbourhood
The flat is ideally situated in the centre of Anstruther, the largest of the historic fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife, full of character and crammed with narrow, winding streets. “A fringe of gold on a beggar’s mantle” is how James II of Scotland described the East Neuk of Fife, with its burghs built around sheltered bays and surrounded by rich farmland. The flat is in spitting distance of the beach in front of the flat. It’s so close, the waves occasionally hit the house! If you have children, you can sit in the comfort of the flat’s window seats and sup your tea or coffee while watching your kids messing on the beach.
Getting around
There’s plenty to do whether you want to walk or cycle, hire a boat to fish, bird watch, play a round of golf or entertain the children with sandy beaches and outdoor activities like canoeing or abseiling. When you want to wind down Anstruther has plenty of quaint pubs, delightful tearooms and award-winning restaurants, including the best fish and chip shop in Scotland. Destinations Airport : Edinburgh at 45 Miles Train Station: Leuchars at 15 Miles St Andrews: 10 miles Dundee: 20 miles Nearest Beach: 2 Metres Nearest Restaurant: 15 Metres Nearest Bar/pub: 20 Metres Nearest Golf: 1/2 Mile A car is recommended to fully explore the area though local bus transport (to return from a long walk) is excellent.
