Cosy cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

A great little cottage with everything you could possibly need. It was extremely clean and comfortable with lots of little extras, the owners obviously go the extra mile to ensure their guests have an enjoyable stay. The wooden floors and enclosed outdoor area were great for our dog.

The shops and restaurants in Anstruther are only a 5 minute walk away, the Fife coastal path is right outside the front door! The streets are narrow and parking is limited so you may have to walk a short distance to the cottage, but that's not a big issue.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Smuggler's Well and hope to return in the future. Highly recommended!!

Comfortable, clean and cosy place to stay a short walk out of Anstruther.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely compact flat in traditional old dwelling. Well appointed, modern interior. Had all we needed to enjoy a week away from home. It was great to walk in and out of Anstruther instead of driving as it gave us the chance to take in the lovely old area and appreciate the variety of houses, wynds and very narrow streets typical of Fife's fishing villages. Parking outside is limited and tight but plenty of space in nearby streets. We loved our time there and will certainly go back again.

Smugglers well was an ideal property for our 4 night stay. Very clean and tidy . Just the job .thanx

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely few days near anstruther . Had some of the best fish n chips ever at the anstruther fish bar . Excellent !! . The haven restaurant was really good too . Fishing museum was very interesting as well . We live down the coast in seahouses so could relate to a lot of things . Lucky with the weather in middle of October so that was a big help as well . Flat was very well provided for as well with lots of nice little touches . Our only slight little problem was with the front door lock . Was awkward to unlock when we came back in for the day although it got better as week wore on. Overall we were very happy with our choice and would love to come back some day . Thanks very much Kirsten . Ian and Kathleen

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and really glad you enjoyed your break in Cellardyke. Thanks also for your feedback regarding the lock. It had been working fine throughout the summer and often needs oiled at this time of year but it seems the sea air has finally got to it so we have now had it replaced with a new one. Hope we can welcome you back in the future (with no access issues!)
