“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just spent an amazing 4 days staying in this cottage, we arrived on the Thursday 31st March and couldn't believe how amazing the place was, the Kitchen was well stocked with Pots/ plates, Cutlery etc, massive fridge freezer, cooker, microwave and even a George Foreman Grill , Washing machine, Tumble drier and Dishwasher, even a dog bowl, fantastic to give our dog Oreo a quick drink while we unpacked. The dining area was amazing with a large table, chairs and the long church pew bench , also on this floor brought us through to the 1st Bedroom, double bed , plenty of storage, then along a bit the next bedroom again very nice, shower and bathroom was on this floor too, downstairs to the master bedroom, had a door to the outside from there, the bathroom downstairs was huge with Roll Top bath again loads of storage, back on the entrance floor the stairs led up to a huge attic room with loads of seating, another dining table, television. The property was well stocked with games, books etc , was in a fantastic location, will certainly book again .

“Characterful, well equipped and dog friendly cottage”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

West Shore Cottage is a beautiful historic fisherman's cottage and has been sympathetically restored and furnished. It is very well equipped and comfortable. Its location in the small village of St Monan's is excellent. We enjoyed walks along the coastal path to Anstruther in one direction and to Elie in the other. Our dogs loved their holiday. The cottage garden is lovely and a bit of a sun trap.
The only criticisms I have is that the directions to the cottage and some of the information in the cottage need updating and there is no internet access.

“Simply fabulous!!!”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Great location to explore the East Neuk of Fife. The house is tucked away just a short walk from the harbor, and it was quiet and peaceful with a lovely garden area. I would love to be able to live there for a while, and hope to return in the not too distant future.
