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!

The living area has a sofa bed offering additional accommodation. The cloakroom with basin and wc is also on the ground floor.

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.

Shoreleave, a Delightful Place to Be

  • 5 of 5

This house is situated right on the harbour. When you open the front door, its charm is immediately evident. We were there in summer, but I'm sure it is also very cosy in the winter months with the fireplace.

Much thought has been invested in the decor, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed. The upstairs sitting room is bright and welcoming, a lovely room to relax in with a beautiful view over the harbour and across to the Bass Rock.

The coastal path passes the door, Pittenweem, Anstruther and fascinating, historical St. Andrews are easily accessible. This part of Fife has its own special charm.

We were there only for a few days unfortunately, but thoroughly recommend this

appealing location.

Thank you Claire.

Beautiful and cosy home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this beautiful holiday home overlooking the harbour in St Monans. The three floors are well laid out and there's plenty of space in all the rooms with amazing views from the top sitting room. I especially liked the kitchen with every appliance you could need and an excellent oven. There's a Spa shop a minute away for all the essentials and an excellent farm shop a 20 walk away for everything else. You also have lots of great places to eat out nearby if you don't fancy cooking each night. The town has a wonderful community vibe and is a beautiful place to visit.

Brilliant for our family birthday get together.

  • 4 of 5

The house was lovely and had everything we needed for a great holiday.

We enjoyed the view from the upstairs sitting room and it was good to sit at the large kitchen table together.

The bath was special and the four toilets an asset!!

we enjoyed our stay here very much, decor is lovely and interesting design features throughout. A bit cramped at times for 8 adults but it worked. Lots to see in the area, easy access to golf and quaint villages nearby. Easy check in .

The most fabulous Christmas 🎄

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fabulous Christmas week. The cottage was perfectly decorated with a real tree and garlands around all of the fireplaces. We were a group of 2 families (including 2 teenagers, an 8 year old and a toddler) and There was plenty of space for everyone. It had everything we needed to cook Christmas dinner and was very well equipped. The views from the bath tub and the upstairs living room over the harbour were fabulous. We went on several walks along the coastal,path to nearby towns. Everyone we met in st monans was friendly and helpful. Would definitely bookmagain .

St Monans
Car: recommended

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.
