My dad booked Rockslea for a week that included dad, my sister and I and Poppy the dog. I was over from Australia. The cottage is beautiful and has all the amenities set in a fabulous location overlooking the sea from both levels within the cottage. Truly a home from home. Only a short drive to all the other surrounding villages and the town of St Andrews.
Very good restaurants around the area. The weather was lovely and I can truly say we all had a wonderful time. What more can you ask but to be in a beautiful place with your beloved family.
Will certainly be back.
The property has been renovated in recent years with a focus on providing an inviting beach cottage feel, which I believe has been achieved. All rooms, aside from the second bathroom are spacious and comfortable. Although the second bathroom is quite small it is nice that there are two bathrooms.
In addition to being a beautiful cottage, the location was wonderful. We enjoyed walking around St. Monans, including the pretty little working harbor, windmill, and church, but it was also an excellent location for driving throughout Fife. We spent several days here and easily could have enjoyed staying longer.
Stayed in Rockslea Cottage for 3 nights. Beautifully restored cottage . Decor was all coastal - themed and very comfortable .
Immaculate, everything you could possibly need , very comfortable bed , lovely linens .
Loved sitting at the windows and watching and hearing the sea...bliss.
We had fabulous weather too, which meant we could sit outside and chill , chatting to everyone who passed by .
Definitely recommend and will be back to stay !
I can't not say enough wonderful things about our experience. From the ease of accessing the key to the great communication with the owner. This was the most beautful well appointed cottage right on the harbor. Immaculate and modern amenities. Cozy wood running stove in a great roomy kitchen. House is plenty big enough for family to stay. Located close 20 minute drive from St Andrews. Very close to all the golf you would want. You don't need to stay in the city to see what Scotland has to offer. Stay in St.Monans and you can access the top tourist spots or even stay low key and enjoy the coast. Take a day and pop over to Stirling or Edinburgh (about an hour drive) not too far that you mind driving back to settle in your cozy cottage after a day sight seeing. We toured two weeks all over Scotland and staying here for a week was the best decision we made. Easy to site see or walk the magnificent coastal path to Pittenween, Anstruther or Elie. Take a ferry to Isle of May. You truly can see and do so much within a stones throw from the cottage. The view is so amazing you won't want to leave! See the sun rise from your bedroom window. Enjoy watching the tide roll in from the kitchen window seat.
Rockslea has been extremely well renovated, mostly to a high standard. Perhaps, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, more attention could have been paid to such things as practical rather than over the top waterfall taps which, whilst attractive, made it impossible to wash your face in the small washbasins. The electric shower in the ensuite not at all powerful and the boiler positioning in the master bedroom wardrobe very close to the bed, disturbing. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rockslea has a wonderful location and a great deal of time and effort has obviously gone into its modernisation.
