I grew up in Scotland, holidaying in Elie, and my parents still spend a huge amount of time there. But university and career took me down south, and marriage and children kept me there. Freddy and I live in Berkshire with our four children and visit Elie as often as we can.
What we most love about Elmbank, is the view out across the golf course. I sit in the garden with my coffee watching the children playing the 5th hole through the gate. I can pop out that gate and play a few holes in the evening sun when the light is so fabulous. Or I can walk down to the beach in my flip flops, able to run home in a couple of minutes if the weather changes.
My first holiday in Elie was when I was 3 weeks old, and I have been visiting ever since. Freddy has been coming to Elie for as long as he has known me (almost 15 years!) so we were thrilled when the opportunity arose to buy Elmbank. But much as we love it, our holidays are limited, and we want the house and village to be enjoyed as much as possible even when we are not there.
Elmbank is a very special house. Welcoming, comfortable, spacious: a real home from home with some extra special touches such as the two master bedrooms with their mahogany four posters. What we most love about Elmbank, is the view out across the golf course towards the cliffs and sea beyond.
Elie is one of Scotland's best kept secrets: the perfect holiday location for families, friends and golfers. Long sandy beaches, beautiful links golf courses, tennis, water sports, cliff walks, great pubs and even a Michelin starred restaurant.
Come with your friends and enjoy great golf, walks, amazing scenery and fun nights out. Take a trip to the ancient city of St Andrews and enjoy local castles and quaint Scottish fishing villages in which time has stood still.
Come with your kids and let them make friends at tennis, golf, putting, water sports and on the beach. You may not see much of them.....
Come for the golf: the links courses of Elie, Crail and St Andrews are world famous, and after a busy day of golf, you can lie in one of our four poster beds and look out across the fairway.....
