Exceptionally well equipped holiday home. Spotlessly clean with very comfortable bed. In an ideal place to explore the coast of Fife. Owners have added little extras to make the stay special and are able to recommend places to visit, local walks etc. Would definitely recommend the holiday home.

Comfortable and very well-equipped. Spotlessly clean. Mervyn was on hand, either in person or by text, whenever we had a query. There are so many walks from the doorstep including the Fife Coastal Path that a week wasn't long enough. It is in a very quiet location, the perfect place to relax and unwind.
