Hidden away in the conservation coastal village of Cellardyke, Anstruther, Harbour View House is the perfect destination for small families, couples and friends wanting to share a holiday together. A real home from home, guests will find a warm and welcoming holiday cottage at any time of the year. The living space on the first floor offers roof top views, from the kitchen and living room, over to Anstruther harbour and the Firth of Forth and Isle of May. This terraced house is south-facing, and the courtyard is ideal for al fresco dining or just relaxing with a glass of wine on sunny days.
There is lots to explore on foot from your doorstep, with quaint wynds and lanes in the old fishing village of Cellardyke, as well as the bustling Anstruther harbour area within five minutes’ walk, where there are eating places to suit all tastes, from an award-winning fish and chip shop to a Michelin starred restaurant, cafés, bars, local shops and galleries. From April to September there are daily ferries and boat trips leaving from Anstruther that take you to the Isle of May, which is a National Nature Reserve and home to colonies of sea birds, including puffins, and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies; well worth a visit.

Perfect for walkers and cyclists there is the Fife Coastal Path, which runs through the village and leads in either direction to secluded coves, little fishing villages, and white sandy beaches. The Millennium Cycle Way runs through central Fife, with miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore along the way in this most picturesque and historic areas of Fife.

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.
