This is one of the best holiday homes we have let in 20 years experience all around UK. Spacious and well arranged accommodation with quality furniture and equipment throughout. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into making sure we enjoyed our stay, with care and attention to detail in design, decor, equipment, even down to a welcome pack of teas, coffees, milk, cake and fresh cut flowers.
The setting next to the farmhouse and castle is stunning and, despite a cold snap we have been warm and comfortable all week.
We already knew the East Neuk as being an area to enjoy for golf, fishing harbours and coastal scenery. Now we have a new favourite bolt hole from which to enjoy it.
Just don't tell anyone else. if it gets too popular we may find it booked up, deservedly.

Peaceful, Spacious Balcomie

  • Submitted: Aug 14, 2012

My 5 day stay at Balcomie Farmhouse was idyllic. It is such a peaceful getaway, with spacious, and luxurious accommodations that made me feel pampered and relaxed. With only three in our group we had plenty of room to spread out. I also enjoyed cooking meals in the fully equipped, roomy kitchen.

Walking the grounds brought romantic imaginings of life back in the 1500's when the farmhouse was a real castle.
The place is surrounded by farm, golf and tree-lined landscape that look out to the sea, and is not far away from the charming, harbor village of Crail which has interesting shops, most notably an established pottery.

I've stayed at Balcomie a few times and plan to go back again. The owners of the property are very kind and accommodating and I'll look forward to seeing them again.

Distilled Scotch

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 13, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
Staying at Balcomie was pure Scotland, if you could distill it into a bottle it would make for a very fine aged scotch. The way the light fell on the hay bales in the fields leading down to the sea was so iconic the scene begged to be painted. And the farm house itself was Classic... Comfortable, spacious, and the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea after coming in from a wild and woolly walk along the cliffs. The surrounding area was beautiful as well, particularly if you like quintessential Scottish fishing villages with their cottages and chip shops and cozy pubs. I don't play golf but if I did, I'd have enjoyed A day on the Balcomie Links -- with grass so green and sky so blue, and the farmhouse silhouetted on the rise in the distance!

Crail is one of several traditional fishing villages situated along the East Coast of Scotland. It has a rich history, some lovely buildings and winding streets full of character. Crail has one of the best known harbours in the East Neuk where (in season) lobster and crab are available. There are also cafes, pubs, a butcher/deli, grocery stores, a pottery, galleries with work from local artists, a museum and tourist information centre.

The nearby fishing villages offer a variety of attractions and activities. Anstruther, a busy holiday village has a marina, the Scottish Fisheries Museum and award winning fish and chips from the Anstruther Fish Bar. There are boat trips to the Isle of May, a nature reserve famous for its nesting puffins. Pittenweem is a working fishing village with a daily fish auction and also home to a successful Summer Arts Festival. Elie has a wide sandy beach and offers a host of water sports. The Fife Coastal Path provides a fantastic route to explore the beaches around the East Neuk, whilst the cycle routes can take you inland to such attractions as Kellie Castle and Scotland's Secret Bunker.

This coastal area of the East Neuk is well served by restaurants and cafes from light lunches, high teas, evening meals, to special celebratory dinners and there are award winning restaurants for example in Anstruther and St Monans.

The nearby bustling university town of St Andrews, home to the famous Royal & Ancient Golf Course has much to offer and is just 20 minutes drive away. The interesting Castle and Abbey ruins show its significant importance in the area in the past, whilst now in modern times there is a good variety of individual shops, restaurants, cafes, botanical garden, and aquarium.

Further afield cities such as Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee and Stirling are within easy reach for day trips.
