About the property

House in Crail, Nr.St Andrews, Fife, Scotland - Seaside Holidays In Crail, Near St Andrews Fife

Beach House Walk in Crail, near St Andrews – perfect for families, a romantic break, or a golfing holiday - five minutes walk to the beach.

You will feel right at home in our beautiful house and its fabulous location. The house is fresh and clean and immaculately maintained, with lots of little touches to make you feel very welcome. It has two comfortable bedrooms, a well-appointed kitchen and a modern bathroom. A sunny, well-maintained garden at the rear of the house gives a private, outdoor space for fun or relaxation, and our private off-road parking means a hassle-free stay.

The location could not be better – open the garden gate, and a five minute walk down the path takes you to Roome Bay Beach where you can stroll on the gorgeous, unspoilt sands and the acclaimed Fife Coastal Path which offers breathtaking scenery.

Or take the short walk into Crail. This pretty, historic fishing village with its cobbled streets and its quaint harbour has a surprising treasure trove in the way of shops (including an award-winning butcher and an independent bakery) and restaurants where you can experience the finest, freshest Scottish seafood, and a variety of shops you won’t see on the average High Street.

If you’re a golfer, you’ll be delighted to know that Beach House Walk is just eight miles away from St Andrews, the home of golf. There you’ll find the largest public golf complex in Europe, with another 17 golf courses to choose from, all within a 15 minute drive. The regular bus service (just walk out the house, stick your hand out and he’ll stop!) Or go in the opposite direction and explore other charming East Neuk fishing villages – all from your own door step.

If you want to explore further afield, the city of Perth, Dundee and the capital of Scotland - Edinburgh can all be reached within an hour’s drive.

Some days you just want to chill at home, and for those days Beach House Walk offers an enclosed garden at the rear – with that enticing gate tempting you down the path to the beach. There’s a barbecue, and garden furniture, and views over the fields. Sit in the garden with a glass of something nice while dinner cooks and feel your cares just drop away. And everywhere there is the scent and sound of the sea and the fresh, Fife air.

You’ll find yourself relaxing the minute you get here.

Beach House Walk has eight bicycles, beach toys, wellies and fishing nets which you are very welcome to use at no extra charge.

About Kirsty Weir

Kirsty Weir is an experienced consultant working actively in the Hospitality Sector for over 25 years.

I have holidayed in the East Neuk of Fife for over 40 years, my ancestors are from Kingsbarns. I have very many happy memories of my holidays here and being a mum with 3 boys I have had lots of fun holidaying with my boys and showing them all the wonderful sights and places that Fife has to offer. I have also worked with Fife Council and worked with the many business and companies in the area.

I have recently purchased Beach House Walk 2014 and have completely refurbished it to a modern and comfortable standard for my family and guests to enjoy.

Why Kirsty Weir chose Fife & St Andrews

Kirsty has a love of the East Neuk of Fife after spending many family holidays as a child in Kingsbarns, Crail.. She enjoys going to the beach with her 3 boys and loves the location of the house as everything you need for a self catering holiday is within 2 minutes which is a necessity for busy families.

What makes this house unique

There is a path behind the house where the children can walk safely to the beach without having to dodge traffic and roads.

The house is situated in a quiet residential street and the rear of the property overlooks fields and countryside.

The spacious back garden is fully enclosed and is a nice private space to unwind. 4 adult bikes and 4 children bikes with helmets to enjoy cycling in the area.

Spectacular place in Crail

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely holiday at Beach House Cottage. It was home to home. Kirsty, covered all amenities in the house. The decor gave comfortable feeling. The views were stunning looking over the fields and only 5 min short walk to the beach. We highly recommend Beach House Cottage especially to those with families.

Great location in a quaint village

  • 4 of 5

Beach Walk House is a well maintained property in a great location! It is about a 10 minute stroll to the beach down a private path and a short walk into the village of Crail which smothers you with historic appeal and quaintness!

Although I was staying there as a single, the property would have even more appeal to small families with bicycles available to explore the town and beach area and an attractive back yard for young children to play in.

Amenities included 2 televisions ( one in the living room and the other in the master bedroom) which worked well and accessed numerous channels. Also, the WIFI signal was strong and consistent.

I was volunteering at a golf tournament in St. Andrews, which was only a 20 minute drive away. Access to other fishing villages was easy along the coastal route, which was fun to drive just for the scenic value!

I would solidly recommend this property to a couple or small family. You will not be disappointed!
