Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in East Neuk of Fife - No.5 Hillhead Street

Charming 2 Bedroom Apartment (sleeps 5)

Set within a stunning, well appointed Victorian villa in the beautiful seaside village of Lundin Links, East Neuk of Fife. This apartment sleeps up to 4 adults, and has an additional pull out bed for a child.

(Please note prices quoted are for the house as a unit NOT per person/room)

This lovely holiday home is situated in a quiet residential street, 2 minutes walk away from the beach and Largo Bay with its break taking views over the bay to Edinburgh and its white sandy beaches.

The apartment has two well proportioned bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin), a large lounge/ dining room with a modern gas fire, a separate kitchen and a newly fitted bathroom with walk in shower.

Hillhead House provides the perfect setting for a family holiday, a golfing trip or a sightseeing tour of the Kingdom of Fife.

Attractions: Besides from relaxing and enjoying the slower pace of life in Fife, there are a whole host of things to do during your stay.

We are very well positioned for trips to Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee (By car, or public transport) and St Andrews, Scotland's oldest university town and the home of the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club is less than 15mins drive away. The town has wonderful shops, restaurants and miles of sandy beaches.

Lundin Links is also surrounded by the picturesque tiny stone harbours of the fishing villages of the East Neuk - Anstruther, Crail, St Monans and Pittenweem. All of which are ideal for a gentle walk and a breath of fresh sea air! For the more daring walker or cyclist, the house is situated on the Fife Coastal Path, specifically designed for walkers and cyclists, which follows the coast line from Kirkcaldy right around to St Andrews.

Why Hazel Ritchie chose East Neuk of Fife

This house was perfect for family holidays and as a weekend retreat. The apartments close proximity to the beach was a real bonus - as were the two excellent golf courses!

The locals are wonderful and have welcomed us back to Lundin Links for over 10 years.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, safe and secure. A wonderful base for families, especially with small children, golfing parties and sightseers.

Hillhead House represents great value for money as an easy drive to most major attractions in central Scotland.

Neat flat in great location

  • 5 out of 5
The property was just as described, and a short walk from gorgeous sandy beaches. It was a home from home and perfectly suited our needs, so much so that we were back within a week!! The owner was friendly and helpful. I would recommend it.

Special Place!!

  • 5 out of 5
I was over from America and had a fantastic stay! It is a very cozy and cute building and the service was excellent! The apartment was close enough to St. Andrews to make it a quick and easy trip. All of the rooms were very well maintained and clean. I enjoyed the selection of games and DVD's that were provided. The quick WiFi made it easy to communicate with my family back home.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone!

Nice place, shame about the service

  • 2 out of 5
When we arrived there were no beds made up. We phoned the owner Staurt and informed him and we were told that someone would arrive to sort them out. But after several phones and some 3 hours later he told us where some keys were hidden and that we could make the beds ourselves. The key was so old it snapped in the lock. We phoned the owner again who said he was unable to send anyone out. We then went to Morrisions and bought the necessary bedding and tea towels, this was not appreciated after our 400 mile journey! We never heard from the owner again to see if we were OK, we even emailed but still no response from him. This is the worse customer service we have received from the many, many holiday homes we have rented in Scotland.
The place it's self was pleasant enough with a nice little garden, and bed - when made up was very comfortable. The kitchen was very small but as we hardy used it that didn't worry us too much. The area has plenty to see and do.
I would come back to the area again but not this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Gillian

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the apartment, and took full advantage of the private garden and wonderful local scenery.

I am sorry to learn that you were disappointed at the time of your arrival.This property is serviced by a local cleaning company. It is extremely unfortunate that on this week the owner of this company was in the middle of a family illness which resulted in a bereavement and was therefore unable to attend to your request for different linen. Linen was available for your use.

As a small family company we strive to provide the highest standard of accommodation and customer service. This is reflected in many excellent we have had over the years of letting this property.

We hope to welcome you back to the East Neuk in the near future.

Best wishes,

Stuart
