Lovely 2-bed Flat In Aberdour - Within Easy Reach Of Beach, Golf And Edinburgh



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Traditional 2-bedroom, Ground-floor Apartment In Accessible Coastal Village

Comfortable, convenient and casual. This apartment is set in the sought-after village of Aberdour on the north coast of the Firth of Forth. A great area for walking, cycling and exploring, the village has award-winning beaches, a harbour, several eateries, golf course and the prettiest railway station I've ever seen. 35 mins on the train will get you to Edinburgh and Aberdour is an excellent base from which to explore the rest of Fife. [Golfers: You can get to plenty of courses within an hour's drive including Gleneagles and St. Andrews.] [Walkers: On the Fife Coastal Path and we're dog-friendly; just ask.] [Cyclists: there's room for your bikes.]

The main bedroom has a super-king double bed that can be split into 2 singles. The second bedroom has a double bed but is best suited to just one person (but you can put 2 in there if you want). The flat is one of 4 in a purpose built traditional-style building that is over 100 years old and has original wooden floors throughout. The central heating and double glazing keep it warm plus we've also added a gas range cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, TV and broadband (none of which have been there for 100 years!).

The modern bathroom has a shower and bath (for your soak after a hard day's golfing/walking). Both the kitchen/diner and the separate lounge are spacious so you can choose to chill alone or gather together in either one.

Through the french doors off the kitchen/diner there's a private, sheltered courtyard ideal for relaxing with a beverage of your choice on a sunny afternoon. There's also a small shed large enough to get your pushbikes in and under lock and key.

This is our first letting year (starting late 2015) and we know we won't get everything right first time so should you decide to give us a go, please leave constructive comments about how we might improve. That would be much appreciated and we promise to listen.

Beautiful flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after a few days in Aberdour. The house is lovely & spacious. Especially the kitchen, oh I loved that kitchen!! Lol. It's very well equipped & has everything we could have asked for. The purple shop is only 2 minutes away if you need anything. The flat is in a great location for the beach, the train station & the Fife coastal walks.

Lindsay was very helpful throughout. I'd highly recommend this property. We had a lovely time. Thank you for having us. Anne, Millar & poppy the spaniel

Great Experience in Aberdour

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 weeks in Northern Scotland spending our last 5 days at this delightful flat. Unit is well equipped and makes you feel like you are living in Scotland. Great town with everything you need. Took the train into Edinburgh on 2 different days. Very reasonable on the off peak hours and very easy to access. 30 minute train ride to Waverly station. Also took day trips to St Andrews and the beaches. I would highly recommend this flat.

Lovely property with everything needed.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much in friendly Aberdour, chosen for it's proximity to family and friends who live in Scotland. The apartment is comfortable, beautifully decorated and fitted out, and very well equipped. The owner was very helpful throughout, and hasn't overlooked anything to ensure a perfect holiday place. We (Mum, two daughters and dog) can thoroughly recommend a stay in this apartment, only ten minutes walk to two lovely beaches; Silver Sands and Black Sands. Although Silver Sands, which has amenities, is listed as 'not for dogs' we saw plenty using the beach. We didn't use the train but if you wanted to, the service is regular, and worth taking a ride north just to enjoy travelling alongside beaches on the Fife coast. The whole area is very scenic on a clear day. Edinburgh is easy to get to - best to go to a park and ride for a bus or tram, and the area is great for walkers and cyclists.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a lovely review, Jo. I'm very glad you enjoyed your visit. I didn't know about the 'not for dogs' aspect of Silversands. I've always seen plenty of dog-owners there with their pets - on the beach and even at the tables outside the cafe. So I'm curious now and will explore what that really means!

Great property in an quaint village

  • 5 of 5

We had an great time in Aberdour. The cottage was large enough for an family of 4. Good railway links to Edinburgh (30 min). The village has everything you need. Great parks, beaches, shops en restaurants.

We booked the cottage 2 days before arrival (lastminute). Very quick communication with the owner.

Pleasantly surprised how lovely the flat was.

  • 4 of 5

Everything we could have needed was already there. The only down side, and this is being picky, is that the water didn't get hot enough to my taste for the bath. Other than that, it was perfect and would happily stay there again. Would recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, Anthony. On a recent maintenance visit I checked the boiler and found that the pressure had dropped, so I topped up and the hot water should now be back to 'full strength'. I've also asked my plumber to check the root cause in the Autumn as part of the regular service. You're welcome back - and please let us know how the hot water is!

Great apartment !

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great! Very spacious and had everything we needed. Very quiet at night and in a perfect location very close to the beach!

The owner was great throughout the whole booking process and gave us all the information we needed.

We would defiantly return to the apartment and discover more of Scotland's beautiful beaches!
