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.

Great base to explore Fife's West Coast!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely long weekend based here. Spacious flat with comfortable bedrooms and large living room. Apartment was clean & tidy on arrival - and a few toys, buckets & spades left out for the kids - nice touch. Excellent communication from Hazel, the owner - would really recommend staying here!

With Lundin Links beach just a 5 minute stroll away, and a short drive to explore the beautiful Fife coast with Elie, Anstruther, Crail and St Andrews all quick and easy to get to.

Neat flat in great location

  • 5 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 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!
