Beautiful House in a Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Dalmore in late June 2016. It was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had. The house is very comfortable with wonderful views across Elie Harbour.

The rooms have been furnished to a high standard and everything that you might possibly need was provided by the owner. The house was spotlessly clean and tidy. You can enjoy sitting in the conservatory and see the sunset go down across the beach.

We were very lucky with the weather which enable us to try out the costal walks which start right outside your door. The house is close to a number of beautiful Scottish villages and the town of St Andrews. There is a pub/restaurant within 2 minutes’ walk which serves excellent food.

Overall, the house is one of the best we have ever stayed in across the UK and we have a tried a number over the last 15 years. Kate, Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We will definitely be booking again.

Truly a luxury beach house in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Dalmore House. It is a very comfortable, spacious beach house set in a wonderful location.

The furnishings are high quality and well maintained and the kitchen was the best we have had the pleasure of using in a holiday home - everything that you might possibly need was provided.

The conservatory and living room bay window offered the most wonderful views over Ellie bay as did the patio on which we enjoyed outdoor dining in the sunshine.

There are wonderful coastal walks right from your door and Ellie, though small has all that you might need for an enjoyable seaside holiday.

I can fully understand why the guest book at Dalmore House is full of comments from repeat guests. It's a truely lovely home in a beautiful location.

Another great holiday in Dalmore

  • 5 of 5

Booked this house up as a last minute short break. As always Kate the owner was more than helpful and was able to accomodate us.

We were so lucky with the weather, sun shone all weekend and the kids even managed a dip in the sea.

Been to this house three times now and it never disappoints, great house with amazing views. Look forward to going back in the very near future.

Delightful Dalmore

  • 5 of 5

We take my parents for a seaside holiday every other year. This year was my mums 80th Birthday so I wanted something special. dal more did not disappoint. The location is fantastic - sea and beach view from the main rooms. Elevated position adds to the enjoyment. The village is lovely- local pubs, Main Street shops, beach and coastal walks.

Short drive to supermarket, farm shop, nearby seaside towns for a wider choice of restaurants and cafes. We have stayed in May holiday lets over the years. dal ore is exceptionally well equipped, and done with attention to detail. You definitely feel as you have been given a friends house to stay in, rather than taking a holiday let. The house it's facilities and the location were all perfect. Thank you.
