About the property

NEW FOR 2018! Sleeps 4-5

Perfect for couples, for families or for friends. Stunning seaside 'boutique' home with beautiful wood burning stove. Set in the very heart of a small quaint Fife conservation fishing village. In a magical seaside location but just a short drive to Edinburgh, the East Neuk and St Andrews.

The village and surrounding area is a haven for wildlife, including a large resident seal colony. Gannets and arctic terns from the Bass Rock can be viewed feeding around West Wemyss in the summer months and dolphins are also frequent visitors.

No55 is freshly decorated & both stylish and comfy. A real home from home. Here’s what you might want to ask...

Q: What’s the living area like?

A: The living room has a brand new wood burning stove for cosy winter nights (a bag of kindling and kiln dried logs are provided for your first few fires). There’s a comfy leather chaise style sofa and 2 ridiculously comfortable armchairs. The collection of pictures you can see on the wall are original 1940’s Lady Chatterley’s always ask!!

Q: Where can we eat?

A: There is a fabulous large dining table which seats 6 guests. You can also sit & do a big jigsaw here!

Q: Are there enough things to entertain us?

A: No55 is fully stocked with lots of books, jigsaws and board games for rainy or just relaxing days...It's an old fashioned seaside 'get away from it all home'. It’s in a small peaceful fishing village (just 2 streets). You’ll really feel as if you have stepped back in else can you go for a beach stroll to look at the seals after dinner?

There’s a large TV with all the usual freeview channels & Netflix too! There's a digital radio & also Marshall speakers for you to hook up to your Iphone/smart phone.

There’s also unlimited free Wi-fi for your use. So enough entertainment to keep everyone happy!!

Q: What about the kitchen?

A: It has a small but perfectly formed kitchen. It is well stocked with all the kitchen equipment you might need (you can even bake a cake!) and has washing machine, small fridge, oven & a new microwave. Tea, ground coffee, sugar, oil, salt, pepper & other pantry goods are always provided for you.

Q: Is there somewhere I can work?

A: Upstairs No55 has a really handy little 'study' area on the landing with mahogany desk & chair so you can comfortably work at a laptop.

Q: What about the bedrooms?

A: The main bedroom is a beautiful deep blue 'grown up' double bedroom with small grandfather wardrobe, chest of drawers and lloyd loom bedside tables for storage. It’s a restful & quite romantic room!

Q: What about the 2nd bedroom?

A: The ‘yellow’ twin room has 2 single dormitory style beds and a large upholstered chest of drawers. There are bedside tables with lovely fisherman’s lanterns for bedtime reading. There are also wall pegs for hanging extra items of clothes.

Q: Do you allow extra guests?

A: No55 is absolutely ideal for 4 but can easily accommodate an extra guest. Perfect if someone is joining you for a few days!

There is a single fold down bed available to an extra guest (or additional child) & this can comfortably be used in either bedroom. Bedding & towels for an extra guest are also provided for absolutely no extra give me a little notice!

Q: Is there a bath or shower?

A: There is a sunny bathroom with an over the bath shower. Shampoo & soap are both provided along with plenty of towels. There’s also another WC on the ground floor...

Q: What about outside space?

A: There’s a beautiful fully enclosed landscaped courtyard which is perfect if you are travelling with children or furry friends. It has a paved area for sitting out to enjoy the sunshine & a BBQ for guest use. In summer it’s a haven for butterflies....There are lovely lavender beds in full bloom mid summer, which smell divine.

Q: Do you welcome well behaved pets & children?

A: Both are very welcome! If you are travelling with either please let me know so that I can make No55 ready for them too!

Dogs (small or medium, 2 maximum) are well catered for with bed, bowls, cage, old towels & tennis balls. There is a £30 charge for pets.

Young children are provided with plastic cups & plates, colouring in books etc. There are also children’s story books too.

Q: Why would we want to go anywhere else?!

A: You wouldn’t!!

Perfect Relaxing Babymoon

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property within an ideal seaside town. We had a very relaxing time- the house is well maintained and there are a multitude of interesting historic sites and farm shops/larders to visit nearby. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Chic, cozy coastal cabin

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed and comfortable cottage: the drinks 'on the house', tablet and homemade fruit loaf were extra treats provided by Ali who has made every effort to make a wonderful place as a base for the Fife coast, St Andrews and the Lomond hills . Tranquil yet a stone's throw from the seafront and walks in both directions along the coastal path.

The wood burner and courtyard garden were particularly appreciated by our dog who enjoyed the sun trap by day together with the stove in the evenings lolling in the wicker bed provided.

Host and house warmly recommended.

Wundervolles Haus, stilvoll und gemütlich zugleich. Vermieterin hat sogar Spielsachen zur Verfügung gestellt und zur Begrüßung einen Kuchen gebacken. Außerdem viele Tipps für Ausflüge in der Umgebung. Ganz toll!!!
