Lovely house for our family celebration
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Creel House. The owner was excellent in sending all the details and giving us directions. The house was beautiful , spacious and very well equipped with plenty of parking . Fife is a lovely area. We enjoyed putting at St Andrews and the children enjoyed crabbing in the rock pools at Crail. I would not hesitate to recommend Creel House for a holiday.
Perfect place for us
Creelhouse, was perfect for us. We travelled with our daughter and my husband's cousin and his wife. The views from the dining room and living room were of the water, what a treat for us Canadians from the prairies! So many great rating areas and pubs were just a few minutes walk, as well as the Isle of May departure dock.We took a bus to Edinbourgh and saw the Tatoo, drove to many close by areas that were on our tourist list (St.Andrews being one of them). The Haven Pub was a short walk away and soon became our favourite! We also took day trips in our rental car to Dundee and Falkland Castle. Just walking along the waterfront street was fun and relaxing.There was nothing about the house or area I could complain about. The owner was great,home was clean and bigger then we thought it would be.I would stay here again easily if we are ever back in the area. For us, the home, location and overall experience was excellent.
Great Holiday House
Fantastic holiday home very central within Anstruther. Had a lovely week's stay. Plenty of room for the whole family to relax in and well equipped accommodation to the highest standard. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Ideal Holiday Accommodation
Creel house is a beautiful place to stay--areal home from home
We could not be more impressed with our choice of holiday accommodation.
Attention to detail was first class
Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Communication between us and the proprietor was excellent.
We shall not hesitate to recommend this place.
A great golf trip
We are four male seniors who love golf and try to get away for a week every year and this time we played St Andrews. Anstruther is ideally positioned to play and it took us about 20 minutes to get there.However Creel House is far more than that as the accommodation is high quality,clean and well maintained.We were also impressed with the customer service as a broken kettle was replaced immediately.The location is lovely and had we would highly recommend Creel House to everybody.
Activity and Interests
The East Neuk of Fife has many wonderful beaches all along its coastline, many of which are ideal for rock-pooling. There are numerous pretty fishing villages within minutes by car from Anstruther, which is in itself a delightful, bustling harbour.

St Andrews (10 miles) - East and West sands, good for kite
Edinburgh Airport is just over one hour by car. There are several car hire companies at the airport, and cheap flights from many UK cities, including the very reasonable Virgin Little Red from Heathrow.
St Andrews, a beautiful university town with excellent restaurants, bars and shops, castle and cathedral, museums, aquarium, botanic garden.
