“Perfect Family Vacation”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Elie is a favourite of our for day trips & long weekends away. On this occasion we wanted to return to Elie to celebrate dad's 90th birthday. He & mum used to holiday their for 2 weeks every year in their younger years together. We felt it would be very special to return with them for a family holiday. Belcote Cottage was the perfect choice. Unfortunately mum & dad are not as mobile as they used to be so it was great that they had a double bedroom & bathroom on the ground floor. There was also enough beds for the another 8 of us, 4 generations all under the one roof. The cottage is very comfortable with a large open plan lounge area & kitchen with ample space to accommodate us all. The owner seems to have thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The cottage has a clean, bright, modern feel to it. You can check the website to view all that it has to offer & I can honestly say you will not be disappointed. We loved the garden. It was a sun trap & very sheltered. There is a large timber garage/games room at the bottom of the garden which houses a full size table tennis table & lots of other things for the kids & adults to play with. There is also a bbq & a chimnea which we made good use of. Elie beach is literally seconds away through the rear gate. There is a windbreak & deck chairs which we took to the beach. We will definitely be back.

“Expectations exceeded with interest.”
Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Super holiday home in lovely location. Ideal property for our group with ages ranging from 0.5 yrs - 60+. Wiith excellent beach so close, secure garden and lots of stuff to play with the kids were extremely happy bunnies. Plenty to see and do in and around St Andrews . First time we"d stayed for more than a day trip in Scotland and delighted we chose Elie Cottage for the week - even the sun shined most of the time!

Belcote cottage is well appointed,spacious and clean and very comfortable and so close to a lovely beach. A good base to explore Fife and many other places of interest. Would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a holiday in the Fife area.

“"Wonderful property, great place"”
Reviewed April 4, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What can I say that hasn't already been said, our 2nd year running staying at Elie Cottage, its spacious, welcoming and perfectly located. We have two young children, both love the house, garden and location as much as we do, beautiful beach, great amenities, have to also recommend the Pavilion for a great place to eat out with the family. What could relax you better than a perfect beach, a perfect house for a family, perfect place and a log burner to enjoy a glass of vino by in the evening, will certainly be back soon. Thank you.

“Beautiful, spacious cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A stone's throw away from the beach, Elie Cottage is perfectly situated for enjoying all that the charming town of Elie has to offer. With ample room for 8-10 people, the cottage itself is incredibly well-equipped and a real highlight is the spectacular open-plan living room/kitchen, complete with wood burning stove.

I cannot recommend a stay at the cottage highly enough - from the pre-trip communication to the quality of the accommodation, everything about our trip was flawless and I find it hard to believe there could be any better option in the town.

“Bright , Spacious and great location”
Reviewed March 10, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Elie Cottage is a wonderful house - it was great for our family celebrations. We enjoyed the large table to all sit round , the garden shed with the ping pong table and the bright lounge area. The cottage was warm and well equipped - The utility room really does have everything you need in it. Elie itself is a lovely little village - beautiful beach , lovely shops . We visited The Ship Inn for a meal and the food was excellent - as was the courtesy bus to take us home.
Great little spot for our 60th Wedding Celebrations.
