About the property

Recently renovated 3 bedroom 3 bathrooms near St Andrews

Dating from 1743, and originally two fishermen's cottages, this house has recently been extensively renovated to offer a spacious, modern and comfortable property in the quiet village of Cellardyke.

The fully fitted kitchen/ dining room (with AGA) offers a large entertaining area with seating for eight plus breakfast bar.

A separate sitting room has direct access to a private walled garden and deck area.

Three twin bedrooms with modern ensuite bathrooms offering showers in each,( plus one luxurious slipper bath) are tastefully decorated and incorporate ample storage.

There is also a storage room, with separate access, allowing wet or muddy equipment to be stored and dried.

A BBQ area is adjacent to the private decking area.

A beautiful sea view over to Bass Rock and Isle of May is offered from the master bedroom which, like the other two bedrooms, features twin beds to cater for groups as well as families.

This property offers direct access to the renowned Fife Coastal Walk that follows the chain of quaint fishing villages round the East Neuk of Fife. Enjoy the old village pubs and restaurants before heading off to play one of the many golf courses in the area including the famous Old Course in St Andrews.

The more adventurous can enjoy the many water sports on offer around Anstruther and Cellardyke. Both villages have harbours that provide boat excursions to the island seabird colonies, and these are both within easy walking distance of the house.

Try the award winning Fish and Chips on your way home from the harbour.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrive home from a beautiful peaceful week at 14 James street, it was home from home I baked and drank wine most of the week, in between walking, the aga was amazing from making pancakes to toasties bread and popadoms to full out Sunday roasts the house has everything you need. The bathrooms and bedroom were lovely warm and comfortable, the living room was lovely but sofa not very inviting after long walks around the coastline but we spent most of our time in the kitchen / dinning area where we had two comfy arm chairs and warm blankets to snuggle up with and watch the tv while the boys played games at table or used the pink sofa in the lounge upstairs. You will not be disappointed if you just want to relax and get away from everything, there is no phone signal unless you go to the top of the house which was ok for us.

My only niggle was no Christmas decorations or a little tree just to say it's Christmas. I'm a big Christmas fan I love everything Christmassy so maybe it's just me.

But I would highly recommend this house.

There are a few stairs/steps, we went with are nan and taid who are in there 70s they managed fine once they got their bearings.

Generally a lovely property but we found it dusty and particularly dirty on the kitchen

  • 2 of 5

We found it difficult to get around the property in a safe manner due to many steps and no hand rails. One bedroom had no heating and the shower did not work.Faulty door from kitchen denied access to rest of house . Heating inadequate on arrival .

Great town and wonderful property

  • 4 of 5

Stay was 9/15-22. Anstruther is amazing. Dave at the Ship Tavern Pub is a tremendous host to his guests. The Fish Bar is great fish and chips and the seafood chowder is delicious at the Boat House. Most impressive is the Cellar restaurant as its a world class dining experience. Small fishing village with delightful residents.

The property is situated within close proximity to town, and it's a comfortable walk. Appears to be newly renovated with excellent materials complete with an Aga for your cooking pleasure, nice added bonus. Loved the property. They had some issues with cleanliness upon our arrival. Was not vacuumed and showers had not been cleaned in some time. We cleaned as best we could but property was not in the condition one would expect.

We still enjoyed our stay. It is a wonderful property to spend any amount of time. Pamela was very responsive and easy to contact, she is great! Made it 4 stars because of the issues but make no mistake, it is a 5 star property. I believe what we experienced were out of the ordinary for this property. I would definitely stay there again and I would recommend it to anyone.
