About Tara Macdonald or Jamie Robertson

The house has been in the Reid family for almost 40 years. Mr Reid has handed over the management to his children who now use it as a holiday home too. It has great memories for the family and they look forward to using it and also letting others enjoy it to.

Madeira In Fife (Jamie and Tara) manage the house on a day to day basis for the family as they all live too far away to manage it as a holiday let. We live locally and can be contacted 24 hours a day. However, we strive to have everything just right so you have nothing to worry about during your stay.

Tara Macdonald or Jamie Robertson purchased this house in 1980

a great holiday house for the larger family...

  • 5 of 5

this was a marvellous experience for the whole family! our 9 children range from 19 to 6 months, and everyone enjoyed it. firstly it was REALLY clean, better than we have come to expect over the years. then the eating area in the kitchen was spacious with a HUGE table, so no squashing or eating in shifts... The garden is larger than the photos indicate, and the on street parking was never a problem, even when we hired a second car... the facilities all around were excellent, and comfortable, and Jamie is really helpful! Many many thanks...

Lovely house in a superb location in a great town

  • 5 of 5

Finding a house in this lovely part of the world that meets the needs of me and my family of 4 and extended family of 4 never easy. Toll Green house does just that. A Beautiful traditional townhouse, literally a minutes walk from a lovely beach and in the opposite direction shops, pubs and golf course. Plenty of parking and easy to get to with a bus stop right outside for visits to Anstruther and Craill. The house itself is on three floors with spacious bedrooms, the stairs raised no concerns for my 6 year old and his friends. Again on the ground floor my adventurous 6 year old had plenty of space to run around especially in a very secluded and secure courtyard which is also linked to a good sized kitchen / dining room via the back door. Two lounges, the upper lounge allows the kids their 'cinema' TV games time in their own space while adults can pursue other activities notably relaxing. Park your car, put your keys away and enjoy this lovely house.

Traditional Elie cottage for beach & golf

  • 5 of 5

Lovely refurbished but original beach house. An old Fishermans cottage kept in the family for many generations and now completely refurbished. The cottage was perfect for our golfing weekend. It provides easy access to the courses of the East Neuk, whilst also being excellently situated in Elie for local facilities. (shops, bars & restaurants). Will be booking again next year.
