This recently refurbished, spacious, detached property enjoys a beautiful location on Braehead in the village of St Monans. It has stunning panoramic views over the picturesque harbour to the Firth of Forth and hills beyond.

St Monans is a quaint, historic, fishing village situated in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife. This part of the world is a wonderful place for a holiday or a well deserved short break. The villages of Elie, Pittenweem, Anstruther, Cellardyke and Crail are all within easy reach and only a short distance along the coast. The historic university town of St Andrews, which is famous as the home of golf, is only 10 miles away.

The local area caters for many interests including hiking, walking, cycling, golf, watersports, sea angling and local boat trips. There is also much to see for anyone with an interest in the arts or history. Alternatively if you want a more lazy time, the area has some beautiful beaches and wonderful restaurants and cafes. The property is situated on the Fife Coastal Path which stretches from the Forth Bridge in the south to the Tay Bridge in the north: this path follows a scenic route and provides some wonderful walking. There are a large number of fine golf courses including championship courses all close by.

This part of Fife boasts a number of excellent restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets within easy reach of the holiday accommodation. The award winning Seafood Restaurant is situated in St Monans itself and the May-View Hotel serves up good pub food. Other notable places to eat are The Cellar in Cellardyke, Sangsters in Elie and the Peat Inn which are all award-winning restaurants. If you are looking for good fish and chips then the famous Anstruther Fish Bar is the place to go!
