This is a wonderful holiday cottage for 4/5, situated in the East Neuk of Fife. If you are looking to escape your daily routine, then this is a perfect holiday retreat, close to the Fife Coast and only 10 miles from St Andrews. The cottage was renovated in 2006 and provides comfortable accommodation on two floors. Visitors have access to a large, sheltered, south-facing garden patio with stunning views.

The East Neuk of Fife is a walkers' paradise, with its glorious coastal path providing stunning views across the Firth of Forth. The path is punctuated by the historic old fishing villages of Pittenween, St Monans, Anstruther and Crail. For those interested in history, visits to St Andrews, Anstruther and Kellie Castle are a must. Further afield, there is the 18th century country house at Hill of Tarvit, Falkland Palace and the historic town of Culross.

This is an ideal cottage to rent for a bird-watching holiday in Scotland - the nearby Isle of May is an RSPB reserve, home to thousands of sea birds that nest on the cliffs. Boat trips to the island from Anstruther are available from May to September, weather permitting.

If you fancy a break from the cooking during your holiday, the area has a number of fine restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Peat Inn, The Cellar in Anstruther and The Seafood Restaurant in St Monans The East Neuk is also an ideal holiday destination for artists and art lovers, with many galleries in the vicinity and the Pittenween Arts Festival at the beginning of August.

The cottage is a 17th century farmhouse on the edge of the conservation village of Colinsburgh. It was completely renovated in 2006 to give it a comfortable yet traditional feel.

There is also a small, walk-in cloakroom and a separate downstairs WC. Upstairs, there are two large bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a double bed and a single bed. There is also a bathroom with a shower.

There are glorious views from the cottage and from the south-facing garden patio, which has a barbecue and garden furniture should you be planning an alfresco meal. Visitors may like to purchase fresh vegetables from the garden when in season. A cot and high chair can be provided for the younger visitor. Bayview is a very cosy cottage at any time of year, so ideal for an autumn or winter short break or long weekend away from the humdrum.
