STUNNING HOLIDAY HOME AT THE SEASIDE! (WIFI + SKY TV)

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in East Neuk of Fife - Hillhead House

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. Which sleeps up to 5 people (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 mins 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.

Attactions: 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 central location

  • 4 out of 5
We rented this place to visit family nearby and to visit the sights in the East Neuk. Although we had a slight mixup with bedding upon arrival, Stuart promptly helped us out. Everything else went very smoothly with the rental. The location is excellent for visiting the seaside and for day trips up the coast and into St. Andrews. We spent a long day at St. Andrews visiting the cathedral, castle (explore the tunnel) and golf course (run on the beach like in "Chariots of Fire"). Several other days were spent in the coast towns of Elie, Anstruther, and Crail. We enjoyed world famous fish and chips at the "Anstruther Fish Bar". It was a long wait to get in, but delicious. If you want an alternative, the "Wee Chippy" just down the street was just a good, cheaper, and no waiting. Supposedly they use the same fish too. If you're adventurous, check out the "Elie Chain Walk" south of the golf course in Elie. It's much less of a walk than a hike with rock climbing assisted by chains. We had a blast. However, if you go, make sure you check out the tide tables and do it when the tide is low or receding. You can get trapped by the tide in some parts. At the end we hiked up on the bluff and got a wonderful view of the beach and surrounding area. There are also old WW II bunkers and gun emplacements up there that were fun to explore. We enjoyed fantastic summer weather so we didn't watch TV or watch the many DVD's in the house. The WiFi was very good and we used it a lot. The beds were comfortable. We had 5 adults in the house with one of them in a roll out bed moved into the living room. Not so great for privacy but very workable. Our only picky points are that you should know that the kitchen is very narrow and it's difficult for two people to work in there at the same time. The picture of it is very accurate. In general, the kitchen was difficult to cook in and could be appointed with better pots, pans and utensils. There was some mold on a wall in the master bedroom that might bother someone sensitive to it. We informed Stuart about it so perhaps it has been fixed. Otherwise, it is a terrific place and our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Ideal Base for East Neuk

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent base for our few days break in Fife! The property had everything we needed and more. Furthermore, as we booked this last minute, the owner provided quick responses at short notice and was happy to provide further help during our stay if we had required it. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Holiday Home & Location

Fantastic Holiday Home & Location

We have stayed at this property on numerous occasions and the property just keeps on getting better and better. Although perfect to start with, the owners keep improving and adding facilities which make it a brilliant holiday home. It is in a perfect area for all of the Fife Coast and Lundin Links itself is a lovely location with a great beach where you can walk all the way to Leven or Lower Largo. We could not recommend this property enough. It is immaculate, comfortable, well equipped, easy to book, quiet with a private garden. Can not wait to return.

Another great stay in this comfortable property

  • 5 out of 5
Our second stay in Lundin Links lived up to our expectations. The property is comfortable, spotlessly clean and was equipped with everything we needed during our visit. We enjoyed the peaceful location and easy access to other villages along the coast.

Very relaxing, spacious cottage.

  • 4 out of 5
Had a lovely relaxing time in this cottage. Ideally situated for exploring the local coastline. Loved walking between the different coastal villages. Very accessible. Good local pubs within walking distance. TV wasn't working when we were there but this wasn't a Problem. Just read and played lots of board games. Bliss!

Fab holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and partner stayed here for a midweek break with our dog. My parents had stayed here in May and had enjoyed it so much had re-booked for all of us but due to unforeseen circumstances they couldn't go at the last minute.

Lovely, spotlessly clean accommodation. House is 5 minutes away from the beach and we enjoyed lots of walks along the miles of sandy beaches with the dog. We spent evenings in the cosy traditional pub at the Crusoe Hotel which is a 10 minute walk from the house. The dog also enjoyed the hospitality the pub provided with water and biscuits!

We had lovely dinners nearby in the Upper Largo Hotel, Golf Hotel Crail and of course the famous chipshop in Anstruther.

Owner very helpful and sincere and looking forward to returning next year

Thank you
