About Nicola Bruce

A Scot who loves the East Neuk of Fife. As a professional, I ensure Elmbank is maintained to the highest standard. As a mother of 4, I ensure the house is a warm and comfortable home from home for families of all ages. And as a golfer, I can offer advice to visitors on which of Fife's wonderful golf courses to visit, with tips on securing tee times.

Nicola Bruce purchased this house in 2011

Why Nicola Bruce chose Elie

What we most love about Elmbank, is the view out across the golf course. Or perhaps the 100 metre stroll to Elie's landmark beach. Or maybe sleeping soundly in a luxury four poster bed. Or even sipping fine wine in the sitting room by the log burning stove.

What makes this house unique

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. And remember to ask us about local golf courses: take advantage of several generations' of local knowledge!

What a fabulous house for our family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house and the village of Elie. Perfect for our family gathering to celebrate parents 60th anniversary. There was plenty of space, with nice rooms and views out over the golf course. A nice mix of period features, aga range at the heart keeping us warm and cosy, and modern comforts. We enjoyed golf on the 9 hole course, only a short walk out through the back gate and along the edge of the fairway to the 1st tee. Even had nice Sunday roast at the Pavilion club house. We played Table tennis in the large games room out in the garden. There was even a bathroom with electric shower out here. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. Parking immediately in front of the house with plenty of space for our 4 cars.

May be worth noting that only 1 room had ensuite and the bathroom on the ground floor was the other side of the kitchen from the bedroom. The bathroom on top floor in coombed ceiling space was very challenging to use due to restricted head height, maybe best for children only! So guests in the upstairs rooms really needed to use the large first floor bathroom. We'd thoroughly recommend this house as it was perfect for our needs, great location, great icecream shop, great wee cafe on main street, slightly disappointed with the Ship Inn, pub grub at restaurant prices. All in all a fabulous place to visit, Elbank and Elie were a treat.

Excellent Elmbank in Elie

  • 4 of 5

I booked Elmbank for a special birthday celebration. 10 adults and two children. The description, layout and facilities were all accurately described. The property was very clean, the beds very comfortable with good quality linen, bathrooms/showers clean and well maintained with good quality towels. Kitchen was very well equipped. It has an aga which takes a bit of getting used to but lends itself to a more relaxed style of cooking which was lovely. We had our evening meals in at the big dining table which seated all 12 of us comfortably. In fact we spent most of our time in the kitchen/dining area as it's such a great family space. The other good thing about this house it has a little snug just off the kitchen/dining room and a little extra sitting room with TV off the main sitting room which doesn't have a TV and which is perfect for just sitting together without the distraction of a TV. The little snug and the TV room also provide a little bit of escape for any of the guests who want a wee quiet space in peace. There is also a lovely conservatory and an outside wooden space which has a full size table tennis table, a good sized TV and is complete with a toilet and shower. Again this provides space for a bit time out. When you have 10 adults all in the one space it was fantastic to have all these spaces additional to the main living space, to allow time on your own if you wanted. It has a good sized garden which is safe for the children to play in without having to keep a watch on them all the time. Elie itself is a very friendly beautiful place. The beach is exceptional, there are lovely walks and a very nice pub. All in all this is a fantastic house in a brilliant location. The only reason I have given it 4 stars and not 5 is the cost. It is quite expensive but it is a very large property with high quality facilities and I would still recommend it to family and friends.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic stay at this beautiful house. There are so many options within walking distance to spend your day , golf, coastal walks and beautiful towns to visit nearby.

After spending the days outdoors it was great to know that the evenings could be spend talking round the kitchen table or sitting round the open fire in the comfortable lounge whilst the children played in the other rooms. A real home from home.

Friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous traditional house, everything you need in the kitchen. Nice and toasty throughout. Kids loved the hide and seek potential as well as the table tennis in the outhouse. Location is amazing, stunning views for walks and golf. Good tracks for mountain biking. Had a great meal and enjoyed the views from the Ship Inn. Indian take away from Anstruther definitely not the best- "Eastern Touch" I would avoid in future!

We plan to return. Three families, kids ranged in age from 6 to 14.
