Another lovely few days at Elie but sorry the same moans again! Screaming kids in the club, why can't they leave at 9? Who wants their babies and toddlers running around after that when folk are drinking, the mind boggles! I've almost deducted a mark this time because we were charged £3.80 for a pint of lager. Get the club... More

The park was clean and tidy and the castaway caravan was comfortable the covered veranda was an added bonus However the external locks where difficult to lock and unlock. Apart from Shell Bay the park is in the middle of nowhere and a car is needed to get to the nearest village

We decided to go for tea at the resturant. first impressions were good. Starters of fish cakes, black pudding and prawn cocktail were... More

We stayed in a 3 bed holiday home at Elie Holiday Park for 3 nights. Our plan was to do some walking and enjoy the peace and we certainly did! The holiday home was spotless and well equipped. We enjoyed the complimentary wine. The park itself has all the amenities and the restaurant and clubhouse were great. Food was good... More

We stayed on this site last year (June & September) and loved it. Nothing compares to the holiday we had this year, amazing site. Fantastic walks along the Fife Costal Path. We had our dog so were unable to eat in the restaurant or sit in the bar, as whilst dogs are welcome on site they are not allowed in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a caravan as a couple. Great site that we had visited years before. Very popular at the weekend so place was packed. We hesitated about going to the on site bar but it was pleasant and not the rowdy rabble we anticipated, with decent entertainment and helpful bar staff. This site caters for everyone... More

Lovely site, great for kids, facilities good but showers could do with the heads being fixed, water was either a single flow or spraying out. Large area for tourers so could really do with 2 shower blocks. Beach was a disgrace, not clean at all, really disappointed in that considering the bay is the main reason for most people staying...

We have travelled all over in the motor home for our summer holidays and, in doing so, have stayed at many camp sites. This is by far the best. The entire park itself is well kept, maintained and clean. The playground for the children is fabulous and they had lots of fun there, the beach is two minutes walk away... More
