“Very comfy house in excellent location”

We stayed (as an extended family group, ages ranging from 10 to 88) for a long weekend in March 2015. Although Belcote Cottage has the appearance of a standard seaside cottage from the street, its Tardis-like spacious interior is far from traditional. It's cosy and very comfortably furnished and equipped. Fantastic bathrooms with first-class showers upstairs and down, and an enormous living-room/dining-room/kitchen with huge family table mean plenty of space for all. The log-burner was a boon. The south-facing garden is equally large and a suntrap, and the location is perfect - the safe and sandy beach is just metres away along a short lane, and it's a relaxed and easy walk along the beach to buy your morning rolls and newspapers. Having rented a number of properties in Elie over the years, we unanimously agreed this was the best.

“Jmb71”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Unbeatable location right beside the beach. House is lovely, the fantastic open-plan living kitchen diner is a great place to hang out. There were 10 of us but it always felt spacious. The sun trap garden is wonderful, kids loved it.

Wouldn't look anywhere else for a stay in Elie.

“A home from home.”
Reviewed December 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Belcote Cottage, felt like a home from home and perhaps the best accolade is that fact that none of us wanted to leave.
We had a party of 10 and despite the cottage appearing small from the outside, on the inside it’s easily large enough for a party of that size.
The living /kitchen area is perhaps the best part with a log burning stove and huge bi-fold doors allowing the living area to be opened up to a beautiful garden.
The house is very well furnished and stocked with pretty much everything you might need, meaning that we had to bring very little with us.
The house is seconds from the beach and only a short walk to the centre of Elie and its amenities.
The owner was tremendously helpful.
Along with the other reviews that I read I would find it difficult to pick fault with the property and I am sure all but the most harsh critic would find it difficult not to enjoy a stay here.

“Beautiful holiday home a gem of a property”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Having stayed in various holiday homes in Elie we have to say that this property has been the best, beautifully renovated and extended . The open plan living dining kitchen is a superb place to socialise with family and friends , there was eight of us and we found the property spacious and not at all like a holiday rental but a home from home , kitchen is so well equipped ...

We were so lucky with the weather and the garden is a sun trap with lovely patio and an added bonus only a stones throw from the sea what more could you ask for !

We have already re booked and are all looking forward to another relaxing holiday in a gem of a property

“Stunning house, stunning location”
Reviewed September 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Elie Cottage for 5 nights with 2 young children. The house was immaculate and very well equipped. We lucked out with the Scottish weather and spent long days on the beautiful beach and in the back garden. The beach is practically in the back yard! It felt more than just a holiday cottage - we would highly recommend for people who want a lovely quiet break. The owners were very helpful too with our last minute booking! Highly recommend.

“Best long weekend ever....”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The house was an absolute treat - way exceeded expectations decor and layout-wise. Perfect party kitchen with small children running in and out to the secure garden while we cooked, drank and socialised inside. Plenty of crockery, big fridge, loads of pots and pans - dishwasher! Everything you need.
A stone's throw from the gorgeous beach, we had long bracing walks to the infamous Ship Inn for lunch or small ambles to the 19th Hold in the other direction. 2 tv's - if you needed them (good for the kids I guess). Just has a lovely feel about the place. Can't wait to go back again soon.
