Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Anstruther - St. John's

Bright and airy flat with 3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, wi-fi and garden

This property is on Earlsferry High Street with nearby access to the beach. It also has one parking space accessed from Links Road. Close to Elie Sports Club. Lovely split level garden area (not grass but patio). Equipped with WiFi broadband and digital TV with all the Freeview channels. Great family flat.

This flat is at the far end of Earlsferry High Street and can be accessed from there or from Links Road. The main door opens into an inner vestibule where you will see the front doors for the upper flat and for this one. Once in our front door you have a handy space for shoes and coats and sand before entering the recently renovated open plan kitchen/living area. This room has 2 huge windows, one at the sitting room end which is southfacing and looks onto The High Street, we are minutes from the beach. Large free-standing fridge with freezer section at top. 3 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms. 1 bedroom upstairs with en suite and 2 downstairs including the bunk room beside the bathroom.

This flat is at the far end of Earlsferry High Street and can be accessed from there or from Links Road. The main door opens into an inner vestibule where you will see the front doors for the upper flat and for this one. Once in the front door you have a handy space for shoes and coats and sand before entering the recently renovated open plan kitchen/living area. This room has 2 huge windows, one at the sitting room end which looks onto the street - no sea views I am afraid but we are minutes from the beach. The other window is at the sink area of the kitchen.

We still have our original gas hob but a new gas oven, washing machine and dish washer. Brand new kitchen units.

The bathroom has loo, basin and a double sized shower. There is one small bunk room with adult sized bunks and good storage. The back room looks onto the garden and has zip and link beds which can be 2 ft 6 singles or a king size bed. Again great storage. There is then quite a steep staircase up to the last bedroom which is a good size and has a king size bed and large wardrobe and also a great cupboard to hide all the suitcases in. This room has a bird's eye view of all the area to the back of the house.

The garden is all paved and has 2 different levels to catch the sun at different times of the day. On the lower area we have a round picnic style table with umbrella and outdoor sofa and chairs with coffee table. There is also an outside brick barbecue. We then have the highly sought after parking space. Parking is for one car only and it can be quite tight turning in from Links Road. Other parking is on the street in front of the house or up near Chapel Green.

About Suki Stobbs

I was born and brought up in Scotland. Property is my business and holiday rentals are part of that business. We are based in Perthshire but love coming to Elie as it is only an hour away by car.

Suki Stobbs purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Suki Stobbs chose Fife & St Andrews

We are one of these families that spent a lot of our formative years in Elie. We were bereft when a family holiday property was sold and that is what prompted us to purchase a property in Elie back in 2008. It meant selling up in France where we developed the first holiday rental of our small portfolio but it made a lot more sense to be closer by.

What makes this apartment unique

This garden flat appeals to us as it is at the quieter end of town, it is perfect for dog walking and you have a choice of 2 beaches on the doorstep. The main beach is just a stone's throw away but being located on the main street a short way back from the beach means that the property is not battered by the on shore wind and weather! We can use on street parking near the front door or when it gets busier the private car park space round the back is invaluable. The patio area at the back of the house catches the sun all day and nice high walls do their best to keep the wind away! Internally there is a nice light bright high ceilinged entertaining and living space at the front and then 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (shower rooms) at the back.

Beautiful, spacious flat with high ceilings and a lovely garden space

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my 3 kids for a week and had a brilliant time. It was clean, spacious, well stocked with all the equipment we needed and in a great location for the beach, golf etc. The split level garden with barbecue area is lovely and the small summer house with its fluffy blankets were well used by my six year old and her cousin. The private parking at the back was also really helpful as the spaces outside on the street were often full. The only improvement I can suggest is to strengthen the wifi - as there's generally no phone signal, it becomes even more important for contact with the outside world! I'd thoroughly recommend staying here if you are planning a visit to beautiful Earlsferry.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time out to review St. John's, I am delighted the new summerhouse was well used. You are right, the wi-fi signal is strong in the back of the house bedrooms area where the phone point is but depending on how many doors are open/shut, the signal can weaken beyond the kitchen table. I will investigate boosters.

What isn't there to do in and around Elie? The sports club is nearby with its 9 hole golf course, tennis, driving range, putting and bowls and The Pavillion restaurant/cafe. This is next to the main Elie 18 hole golf course. At the harbour you have all the watersports as well as the fun rides like donuts and banana boat! Obviously you have the beach a stone's throw away. Nearby in Earlsferry is the 19th hole pub (Golf Tavern) which serves food and has Sky TV and then The Ship Inn with its beer garden and outside BBQ area is along at the harbour in Elie. Watch out for the regular summer cricket matches on the beach outside The Ship Inn. Enjoy the range of food at Ardross Farm Shop just outside of Elie.

There are many golf courses in the area. Walkers will enjoy the Fife coastal path that can take you further down the coast or up as far as Crail and beyond. The nearby villages/towns of St. Monans, Pitenweem, Anstruther and Crail are well worth a visit. There you can see the fishing boats and potteries and Fisheries Museum. There is also St. Andrews at only about 15 miles away and then Dundee at about 40 minutes away.
