Description

Abbie House is delightful, terraced, three-storey townhouse in the picturesque coastal village of St Monans in the East Neuk of Fife. This is the perfect location for a holiday by the sea where you can walk to the harbour within a few minutes. Here you can watch the boats, have a coffee and sample the home baking in the friendly local coffee shop. There is an excellent seafood restaurant on the harbourside as well. St Monans is a charming conservation village and there are historic buildings, quaint lanes and wynds to explore and an old windmill that once powered the salt panning industry. Freshly caught fish is available in the village and there is an excellent fish and chip shop.
The Fife Coastal Path passes through the village and has spectacular coastal views to enjoy while you follow the route to sandy beaches, pretty fishing villages, old castles and secluded coves. If you like a round of golf on your holidays, there are more than forty golf courses in Fife, from the famous championship fairways of St Andrews to traditional links courses and beautifully landscaped parkland and heathland courses.
For a day out, St Andrews is well worth a visit and has a great variety of attractions to visit and explore including many historic buildings and excellent places to eat. If you would like some retail therapy, there are some super boutiques as well as high street names.
Abbie House is nestled away on a quiet street and the ground floor has an open plan living accommodation with a patio door which leads onto a pretty courtyard where you can relax after a day exploring. Ideal for all ages, the games room has a selection of activities including table tennis and snooker, or you can listen to your favourite music. This is the perfect location for exploring the many delights waiting in the East Neuk of Fife at any time of the year. Beach 500 yards. Shop and restaurant 300 yards, pub 400 yards.

About the local area

Fife was home to Scotland's capital for six centuries, the evidence of which can still be found in its many castles, cathedrals and places of historic interest. Apart from its historical heritage Fife is also renowned for world class golf courses and lovely stretches of picturesque coastline.

Long sections of the Fife Coastal Path can now be enjoyed by walkers and there are a variety of linear and circular routes which have been graded and waymarked, from which you can enjoy beautiful seacapes and spot spectacular wildlife such as grey seals, dolphins and maybe even the odd basking shark. For bird lovers the offshore islands of Inchkeith and Inchcolm are home to thousands of seabirds, including large numbers of Puffins in May.

In the northeast the gentle rolling hills of the hinterland extend eastwards to windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches, where scenes from the film `Chariots of Fire' were filmed. South down the coast a short distance is the ancient university town of St. Andrews, home to the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club.

St. Andrews University was founded in 1410 and is Scotland's oldest university town. The medieval town centre has narrow alleys and cobbled streets which lead to the now ruined cathedral and the church of St. Regulus, which has a spiral staircase leading to the top of a 108-foot tower, offering magnificent views over the town. There are also two great beaches, botanical gardens and an aquarium here.

South of St. Andrews the picturesque small stone harbour fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Piteenween and St Monans are all places to experience the un-hurried pace of life by the sea. Further round the coast there are a number of first class golf courses such as Elie and Leven Links, to name only two of more than forty golf courses in this region!

Southern Fife is dominated by Dunfermline, Scotland's former capital. The Queensferry crossing, the longest bridge of its type in the world, The Forth Road and Rail Bridges over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh are the most distinctive landmarks on this stretch of coast and allow easy access to the capital for days out.
