Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in East Neuk of Fife - Shoreleave

3 Bedrooms, 2 Living Rooms, Dining Kitchen All With Sea Views

Shoreleave has regularly featured in photographs and paintings of St Monans harbour as a grey B listed three storey building dating back to 1700s in need of upgrading. However Shoreleave is now beautifully upgraded taking pride of place right on the harbour front. The property has been completely modernised whilst retaining many original features including original exposed beams, ecclesiastical stone arch and fireplaces. An original cast iron roll top bath has been added to one of the bathrooms offering a sea view as you bathe! The restorer commented it was the best view he had ever seen from a bath!

On the ground floor there is a very large open plan kitchen, dining and living space with a log burning stove. The dining area can seat 10 people comfortably. The living area has a sofa bed offering additional accommodation. The cloakroom with basin and wc is also on the ground floor. The back door opens out to the paved terrace area with a barbecue, patio table and chairs and potted plants.

The property has three large double bedrooms: one double and one twin on the first floor with an adjoining bathroom. On the top floor there is the second double bedroom with an ensuite double shower room. There is also an additional shower room on this floor. There is a second large living room giving elevated views over the harbour whilst offering additional accommodation on a sofabed.

Seating is available to sit outside at the front of the house whilst soaking in the views or chatting to walkers as they pass by.

A Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed at Shoreleave for a long weekend. It was a beautiful house with fabulous views across the harbour. The rooms were all nicely decorated with lots of personal touches throughout the house. The downstairs living room with the wood burning store was just amazing. A Fabulous house with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. We also loved the Molton Brown toiletries in all the bathrooms. We can't praise this house highly enough.

A heavenly haven

  • 5 of 5

A delightful and wonderful holiday home. It's beautifully and tastefully decorated with all the warmth and comforts of a 5 star hotel. The views of the harbour are a delight. A stone throw away is the Craig miller restaurant - where we had a superb meal.

A really perfect and idyllic retreat. Thank you so much!

Beautiful house in a stunning location,.

Despite arriving in torrential rain we thought St Monans delightful and the position of the house perfect.Inside was every bit as good as out if not better.A sympathetic restoration providing beautiful but also comfortable and functional accommodation.You can walk the coastal path,visit other pretty villages and enjoy an excellent dinner just a step away.Ardross Farm Shop is not to be missed if you prefer home cooking.You will find all you need in the well equipped kitchen and all the essentials like olive oil etc are there for your use.I am sure we will be back and have already recommended it to friends and family.

St Monans is one of the famous East Neuk fishing villages renowned for beautiful surroundings, quiet beaches, great walks and fresh local produce. Shoreleave is a recently restored three storey house overlooking the harbour with the famous Fife coastal path right on the doorstep: turn right and head to Elie, turn left and head to Pittenweem taking in the beautiful seascape all along the route.

The award winning Craig Millar seafood restaurant , The Mayview Hotel and the newly opened Smokehouse offer a great variety of dining options within the village. The local area has an abundance of restaurants to choose from ranging from gourmet to pub grub, all of a very high standard.

The Ardross farm shop and the wholesale fishmongers, both located near the entrance to the village, offer fresh local produce at very reasonable prices. The local shop has everything you need for your stay.

Golfers are spoiled for choice for local golf courses with the famous St Andrews Old Course only 12 miles away. Water sports are available at the famous Blue Flag beach in Elie only 2 miles along the road.
