Stunning holiday home at the seaside! (Wifi + Sky TV)

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Fife & St Andrews - 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 Fife & St Andrews

Nice Clean and Homely

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice Easter stay over the weekend.

The place was spotless and very tidy also every thing that you could need was at hand. It was cosy and warm.

My mother in law thought she had left a book when we left this turned up at her house. The owner had the house searched for us, she couldn't have been more helpful with this. If staying in the area again then we will try to book this again.

We had a lovely time at Hillhead House

  • 5 of 5

The holiday home was spotlessly clean, well equipped and had everything we needed for an enjoyable break. The bedding was fresh and was of good quality and the kitchen and bathroom were both of a high standard. The property was close to the beach which suited the dog, shops nearby and in a quiet location.

We were very comfortable and having holidayed in the area for many years, I am looking forward to returning and would recommend the property to friends and family

Fabulous week!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week. We loved the town of Lundin Links! It is quaint and beautiful! The home was roomy enough, and nice and clean. The beds were comfortable, and it was fun to have the DVD player and a good selection of movies to watch, though we only watched 1 because we ventured out each day. Thank you for sharing your home. We would recommend it highly!

Clean and tidy - quiet location

  • 3 of 5

Stayed a week in this property and overall had a good time. The apartment was very clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable although the mattresses were too soft for me. What really surprised me was the fact that this property was advertised as suitable for the elderly and infirm yet the main bedroom and bathroom both had a step into them which came as a surprise as there was no warning about them, fortunately i was able to stop myself from falling into the bathroom. Putting the dustbin out was also a problem - the steps are quite steep and would benefit from a handrail to steady yourself with when using.

The kitchen is well equipped and most things you will need are provided.

You are within easy reach of most places by car or bus. The beaches in the area seem to be all dog friendly and easily accessible. St. Andrews is well worth a visit -especially if you are looking for a gift for anyone.

Owner's Response: Hi John , So sorry you found the house difficult. My mother was very fit and active and managed the house when she was 92 years old. She died at 97 !! One place she really enjoyed was the garden which is so quiet and sheltered. Maybe she was not the best person to base a description of the house being suitable for the elderly. Steps are shown in our photograghs of the house from the outside. You are the first guest we have ever had to say that the beds were too soft. I am very glad you and your dogs enjoyed the beaches and St Andrews. Take care.
