Golf Cottage is a charming detached Victorian cottage providing spacious, bright accommodation for up to 9 people on two levels. It has been totally refurbished in 2015 with a new kitchen, bathroom, landscaped garden (with evening lighting in gazebo and in garden), multi fuel stove, Sky TV and WiFi. The property is tucked away and sits within its own private fully-bound walled gardens which, in the summer time, get the sun all day. The East Neuk of Fife in Scotland enjoys a micro climate and therefore is one of Scotland's driest locations. Elie which has been described as one of Scotland's "best kept secrets" is only 10 miles from St Andrews and an hour from Edinburgh.
Golf Cottage is conveniently located for golf courses, two of which are just next to the property.
Several famous links golf courses are close by, and the championship course at St Andrews is only 10 miles away. Many other activities - including horse-riding, cycling, climbing, abseiling, sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing and diving - are also available in the local area.
The cottage is also perfectly situated for a seaside holiday, being only a two minute walk to the lovely stretch of the golden sandy Elie beach, and a 4 minute walk to the award-winning blue flag beach by the harbour. There are numerous pubs and restaurants to suit all budgets in the local area, and the 19th Hole, a family friendly pub with delicious home-made food, is just next door. Local shops, including a baker, delicatessan, pharmacy and gift shops, are within walking distance, the area is ideal for walking and cycling or just relaxing in this secluded location.
