Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 6th time we have stayed at abbeywall. As usual, the flat was comfortable, very clean, well equipped and a wonderful base for our golfing break

Thoroughly enjoyed being here for the annual Arts Festival. Wow, what a great time and atmosphere.

Loved our short stay at Abbeywall, - just perfect for our walking weekend.

Clean, well resourced, fabulous views and right next to the coastal walk.

  • 5 of 5

Really comfortable and well-kept flat, with nice personal touches such as hand cream and shower gel. The views are lovely, and we were able to enjoy the coastal walks to Elie and Anstruther with our dogs each day. We arrived in a thunderstorm, which caused a short local power cut, and Kirsten's husband braved the storm to bring over candles and matches. Great weather the rest of the week, though! Highly recommended, and we hope to return.

top notch

  • 5 of 5

the apartment was immaculate, and private, furnished in a style to make you feel comfortable from the start( much better than the carbon copy hotel chains )great views from the windows, slept so well in the comfy bed we nearly missed our holiday. Quiet friendly village, and Anstruther a stones throw away had tables and chairs outside the pubs and restaurants on saturday(all full)because the sun shone in March . like Barcelona wi duffle coats. All this and pet friendly too.

Walking the dog at night(with the torch provided) the stars were everywhere in a clear sky, if you want to find peace for a few days, its here.
