“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just spent an amazing 4 days staying in this cottage, we arrived on the Thursday 31st March and couldn't believe how amazing the place was, the Kitchen was well stocked with Pots/ plates, Cutlery etc, massive fridge freezer, cooker, microwave and even a George Foreman Grill , Washing machine, Tumble drier and Dishwasher, even a dog bowl, fantastic to give our dog Oreo a quick drink while we unpacked. The dining area was amazing with a large table, chairs and the long church pew bench , also on this floor brought us through to the 1st Bedroom, double bed , plenty of storage, then along a bit the next bedroom again very nice, shower and bathroom was on this floor too, downstairs to the master bedroom, had a door to the outside from there, the bathroom downstairs was huge with Roll Top bath again loads of storage, back on the entrance floor the stairs led up to a huge attic room with loads of seating, another dining table, television. The property was well stocked with games, books etc , was in a fantastic location, will certainly book again .

“Characterful, well equipped and dog friendly cottage”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

West Shore Cottage is a beautiful historic fisherman's cottage and has been sympathetically restored and furnished. It is very well equipped and comfortable. Its location in the small village of St Monan's is excellent. We enjoyed walks along the coastal path to Anstruther in one direction and to Elie in the other. Our dogs loved their holiday. The cottage garden is lovely and a bit of a sun trap.
The only criticisms I have is that the directions to the cottage and some of the information in the cottage need updating and there is no internet access.

“Simply fabulous!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Great location to explore the East Neuk of Fife. The house is tucked away just a short walk from the harbor, and it was quiet and peaceful with a lovely garden area. I would love to be able to live there for a while, and hope to return in the not too distant future.

“Should be renames "TARDIS" - Huge inside!”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a short break with mutt, son and brother in law. St Monans is a beautiful unspoilt village but still with lots to do and see within 25 miles. Cottage has absolutely everything you need but no WiFi ( brilliant). Very comfortable! Will certainly go again.

“A little bubble of calm”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed 1st-5th June. Weather was not great ,but the cottage was beautiful everything we needed. kitchen had everything available just had to add food and drink. I only cooked breakfasts. The sausages from farm shop are delicious. To get back to cottage it was like stepping through the gate into a secret garden which led to cottage. enclosed small garden which was lovely. Wooden floors throughout easy to clean and great since we have 2 standard poodles and as I said weather was windy and wet on 2 days. Bedrooms beautiful and largest bathroom is simply stunning. We had a lovely relaxing calm holiday as we had no internet and no phone reception so you had time to read and chill. Will definitely visit again.
