Description

Set in the pretty East Neuk village of Colinsburgh and tucked away down a quiet lane, Sandyfield Cottage is a welcoming first floor cottage apartment. This is an ideal location for a couple or a small family to explore this most attractive area of Fife. The historic village has a shop and post office, and the neighbouring village of Kilconquhar is further down the lane with a local inn.

Just 5 minutes’ drive is the attractive seaside village of Elie, with sandy beaches, water sports and quality places to eat, a great place to spend time. You can join the Fife Coastal Path here for miles of superb coastal walks to old fishing villages, secluded coves and rugged cliffs. A walk to St Monans is particularly interesting and winds along the shore, passing ancient ruins including The Lady Tower built in the 1700’s for Lady Janet to change before going to swim, so if you want to follow her example don’t forget your costume. There are superb view over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and the Pentland Hills, and down to the Isle of May on a clear day. St Monans has a small picturesque harbour and good places to eat. You can also buy fresh sea food if fish is on the menu that day.

If you enjoy a game of golf on your holiday, Fife is just bursting with courses to play on, and the local course at Charleton has 18 holes and welcomes visitors. The estate also offers horse riding. Ideal for exploring further afield, places include Kingsbarns Whisky Distillery and the enchanting town of St Andrews, with its magnificent ancient monuments, excellent places to eat, lots of interesting places to shop, visitor attractions and championship golf courses. After a day exploring, Sandyfield Cottage is a lovely place to return to and relax, enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the small private garden or curl up with a book in the cosy living room. Beach 2¾ miles. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

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.
