Little Break

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a fantastic place both Neil and Janet were lovely people nothing to much trouble for them. I can't recommend this place enough its so homely very clean and tidy... To say its on the main road you do not hear the traffic. It is a bit out of the way but the buses run regularly and it is a lovely little village plus everything is within easy reach. We will be back no problem

Fantastic location and has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property with everything that you could need for a comfortable stay. It's a perfect location for exploring the surrounding area - we had a fantastic time exploring the fishing village along the East Neuk coast and had an incredible time at St Andrews. Thank you

Great Place to Stay in the Kingdom of Fife

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has it all - good size, clean, well stocked kitchen, good Wi-Fi and TV service, quiet, and a great location along the coast of the Kingdom of Fife. The owners were nearby, making them very accessible for questions and assistance. Travel time is less than an hour to Edinburgh by car, and even closer to St. Andrews. Only downside is limited mobile signal.
