Location

Location

The scenic fishing village of St Monans is in an area renowned for its coastal walks, quiet beaches and numerous golf courses. It has lovely wynds, colourful houses and of course, the fishing harbour. The 'Auld Kirk' is a particularly striking church, positioned majestically on the coastline and first built in the 14th Century.

Just a short walk from the house and overlooking the harbour is an award-winning restaurant, Craig Millar @ 16 West End. At the other side of the harbour you can find the East Pier Smokehouse, with equally lovely views across the water.

The seaside town of Elie is only 2 miles away, with beautiful sandy beaches as well as a great selection of shops and restaurants. 2 miles in the other direction is Pittenweem, the most active fishing village in the East Neuk and home to the celebrated Pittenweem Arts Festival in August.

Our St Monans holiday cottage is within easy reach of Edinburgh (1hr30), St Andrews (30mins), Dundee (40mins), Perth (45mins) and Stirling (1h30m).

Directions

St Monans is about an hour’s drive from Edinburgh and Dundee Airports. You can also reach the village by bus from Edinburgh and St Andrews.

Lovely house situated in an amazing working fishing harbour. House is well equipped and is in a great location for walkers, golfers and beack goers.

Perfectly located, comfortable house near St Monans harbour. Parking is very limited near the property. Great base for exploring the East Neuk of Fife.
Small galley kitchen in open plan dining living area. This area felt full with the 3 adults travelling.
Lovely modern bathroom with shower. Lots of lovely art pieces around. Not suitable for any one with mobility issues due to the three levels and stairs.

Perfect cosy cottage, spotlessly clean and in an unspoiled idyllic village. Perfect location in between Elie and Anstruther.

Lovely house over 3 floors, well equipped and nicely appointed furnishings. Location is close to the sea on a quiet street. Communication with Lorna was very good and key access on arrival was very convenient.

What a stylish and well appointed fishermans cottage. We loved the layout over 3 floors and the bright and high quality decor. The bedroom on the top floor is like a hotelsuite with its own sofa and TV. A real find!

The most perfect fisherman's cottage in an idyllic location . The house is immaculate, beautifully designed with some lovely artwork and very thoughtful touches throughout, and was cosy and warm with fantastic hot water. We absolutely loved it. The situation couldn't be better - wonderful cafe literally next door, a minimarket which is like the Tardis in Dr Who (bigger inside than out and seems to stock literally everything) and of course the St Monan's smokehouse, all within a hop, skip and a jump. The walking is terrific, the views everywhere you look are beautiful, and if you are brave, the sea pool is only a five minute walk away. We had a blissful stay and very much hope to be back before too long.

Great location. Enough room for four people. Very clean. Communication before the stay was first class. Any problems and they’re answered straight away and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

St Monans is one of a series of pretty little fishing villages along this coast and the house is only yards from the harbour. It's ideal for two and would be OK for four, although being on three levels with steep stairs would not suit someone with mobility problems.

This St. Monan's house is a secluded, beautiful gem set amongst the quaint, wonderful seaside towns of the East Neuk of Fife. I don't want to tell people how fantastic it is as we want to be able to book to come back! If you get a chance, visit The Cocoa House in Pittenweem and The Adamson in St. Andrews - a wonderful Michelin star restaurant for good prices! If you book here, you will not be disappointed.

We had a really great holiday, loved the house, very quirky, lovely artwork and exactly like the photos. St. Monans is a great place to go with a young family (we have a 1 and a 4 year old) and a good base for all nearby beaches too. We're hoping to come back soon!

A home away from home. We had a very comfortable stay. The house is well appointed and tastefully decorated with real art / tasteful prints with a seaside theme. We stayed in the winter and it was really cosy. There is a general store across the road supplying fresh food, veg, bread & newspapers. St Monans is a beautiful fishing village with great walks along the coast to Elie and Anstruther. We would be more than happy to stay there again.

The house is warm and cosy and in a great location a stone's throw from the harbour - idea for accessing the Fife Coastal Pathway. We walked to Anstruther via Pitenweem one day and to Elie the next. Perfect weather and lovely scenery. The Smoke House at the harbour a has rooftop seating area and sells locally caught sea food: I can recommend the Tempura Prawns!

We didn't meet our host but she furnished the house cozily, tastefully and with great attention to detail, which made us feel at home straight away. She also provided detailed information about where to go & what to do. The locals were so friendly and warm that we felt instantly welcome.

A beautiful house with lovely features filled with artwork by local artists. A very relaxing and comfortable place to relax, unwind and see the local points of interest in the East Neuk. Very close to the harbour and next to a fantastic coffee shop, The Diving Ganet. I couldn't have enjoyed my stay more and would recommend this property. I will definitely be returning!

Great cottage in St.Monans and perfect for exploring the beautiful east neuk of Fife. The flat is well laid out, well equipped with some quirky little areas and wonderful local art adorning every wall. Lorna was very responsive to every request for information and the welcome pack leaves you with very few questions to ask. The shop across the road is well stocked with very friendly staff. A walk (or even run) along the coastal path to the windmill is recommended, as is the path to Elie with a stop off in the wonderful Ardross Farm Shop. The local hotel has some excellent beer and is very welcoming also. We will definitely be coming back to stay here again.
