Overview

East Neuk of Fife House Rental Photos and Description

Charming 2 Bedroom Apartment (sleeps 5)

Set within a stunning, well appointed Victorian villa in the beautiful seaside village of Lundin Links, East Neuk of Fife. This apartment sleeps up to 4 adults, and has an additional pull out bed for a child.

(Please note prices quoted are for the house as a unit NOT per person/room)

This lovely holiday home is situated in a quiet residential street, 2 minutes walk away from the beach and Largo Bay with its break taking views over the bay to Edinburgh and its white sandy beaches.

The apartment has two well proportioned bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin), a large lounge/ dining room with a modern gas fire, a separate kitchen and a newly fitted bathroom with walk in shower.

Hillhead House provides the perfect setting for a family holiday, a golfing trip or a sightseeing tour of the Kingdom of Fife.

Attractions: Besides from relaxing and enjoying the slower pace of life in Fife, there are a whole host of things to do during your stay.

We are very well positioned for trips to Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee (By car, or public transport) and St Andrews, Scotland's oldest university town and the home of the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club is less than 15mins drive away. The town has wonderful shops, restaurants and miles of sandy beaches.

Lundin Links is also surrounded by the picturesque tiny stone harbours of the fishing villages of the East Neuk - Anstruther, Crail, St Monans and Pittenweem. All of which are ideal for a gentle walk and a breath of fresh sea air! For the more daring walker or cyclist, the house is situated on the Fife Coastal Path, specifically designed for walkers and cyclists, which follows the coast line from Kirkcaldy right around to St Andrews.

Nice place, shame about the service

  • 2 of 5
When we arrived there were no beds made up. We phoned the owner Staurt and informed him and we were told that someone would arrive to sort them out. But after several phones and some 3 hours later he told us where some keys were hidden and that we could make the beds ourselves. The key was so old it snapped in the lock. We phoned the owner again who said he was unable to send anyone out. We then went to Morrisions and bought the necessary bedding and tea towels, this was not appreciated after our 400 mile journey! We never heard from the owner again to see if we were OK, we even emailed but still no response from him. This is the worse customer service we have received from the many, many holiday homes we have rented in Scotland.
The place it's self was pleasant enough with a nice little garden, and bed - when made up was very comfortable. The kitchen was very small but as we hardy used it that didn't worry us too much. The area has plenty to see and do.
I would come back to the area again but not this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Gillian

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the apartment, and took full advantage of the private garden and wonderful local scenery.

I am sorry to learn that you were disappointed at the time of your arrival.This property is serviced by a local cleaning company. It is extremely unfortunate that on this week the owner of this company was in the middle of a family illness which resulted in a bereavement and was therefore unable to attend to your request for different linen. Linen was available for your use.

As a small family company we strive to provide the highest standard of accommodation and customer service. This is reflected in many excellent we have had over the years of letting this property.

We hope to welcome you back to the East Neuk in the near future.

Best wishes,

Stuart

Great central location

  • 4 of 5
We rented this place to visit family nearby and to visit the sights in the East Neuk. Although we had a slight mixup with bedding upon arrival, Stuart promptly helped us out. Everything else went very smoothly with the rental. The location is excellent for visiting the seaside and for day trips up the coast and into St. Andrews. We spent a long day at St. Andrews visiting the cathedral, castle (explore the tunnel) and golf course (run on the beach like in "Chariots of Fire"). Several other days were spent in the coast towns of Elie, Anstruther, and Crail. We enjoyed world famous fish and chips at the "Anstruther Fish Bar". It was a long wait to get in, but delicious. If you want an alternative, the "Wee Chippy" just down the street was just a good, cheaper, and no waiting. Supposedly they use the same fish too. If you're adventurous, check out the "Elie Chain Walk" south of the golf course in Elie. It's much less of a walk than a hike with rock climbing assisted by chains. We had a blast. However, if you go, make sure you check out the tide tables and do it when the tide is low or receding. You can get trapped by the tide in some parts. At the end we hiked up on the bluff and got a wonderful view of the beach and surrounding area. There are also old WW II bunkers and gun emplacements up there that were fun to explore. We enjoyed fantastic summer weather so we didn't watch TV or watch the many DVD's in the house. The WiFi was very good and we used it a lot. The beds were comfortable. We had 5 adults in the house with one of them in a roll out bed moved into the living room. Not so great for privacy but very workable. Our only picky points are that you should know that the kitchen is very narrow and it's difficult for two people to work in there at the same time. The picture of it is very accurate. In general, the kitchen was difficult to cook in and could be appointed with better pots, pans and utensils. There was some mold on a wall in the master bedroom that might bother someone sensitive to it. We informed Stuart about it so perhaps it has been fixed. Otherwise, it is a terrific place and our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Ideal Base for East Neuk

  • 5 of 5
Excellent base for our few days break in Fife! The property had everything we needed and more. Furthermore, as we booked this last minute, the owner provided quick responses at short notice and was happy to provide further help during our stay if we had required it. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Holiday Home & Location

We have stayed at this property on numerous occasions and the property just keeps on getting better and better. Although perfect to start with, the owners keep improving and adding facilities which make it a brilliant holiday home. It is in a perfect area for all of the Fife Coast and Lundin Links itself is a lovely location with a great beach where you can walk all the way to Leven or Lower Largo. We could not recommend this property enough. It is immaculate, comfortable, well equipped, easy to book, quiet with a private garden. Can not wait to return.
