Fantasic property in stunning location

Super property in a fabulous location ! We had everything we needed and even with the 6 of us, there was plenty of room. A lovely, clean and well situated house that was warm and comfortable with stunning views over the bay. Would definitely recommend!

Perfect home, views, holiday in Elie!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Dalmore Beach House for our week in Scotland! The views are unending - we practically lived in the sun room just off the kitchen. Plenty of room for five of us; the home is full of charm, we cooked and enjoyed strong French Press coffee every morning. The location is also perfect - so enjoyed LONG coastal walks, sea canoeing, pastries from the bakery, watching the sail boats in the harbor.... No end to the joys and delight! We made a trip to Anstruthers for the best fish and chips in Scotland. We rode horses at a nearby castle. Church was great - attended in the beautiful old Church building just up the road. Thank you to Kate for your kindness and the beautiful fresh flowers in the foyer and in the kitchen. If we should ever make it back to Scotland for another long holiday - we would try to secure this home again. Have already recommended this place to several people!

Wonderful relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two daughters have just spent a lovely long weekend at Dalmore House. The house is spacious, well-equipped and as other reviewers have commented-'a real home from home'. The views from the sitting room and sun room are just stunning. It was a real pleasure to sit with a coffee in the sun room in the morning or with a glass of wine and a book in the evening, watching people going down to the Ship Inn.

The house is close to the start of the coastal walk. We enjoyed a trip to St Monan's and lunch at East harbour having lobster and chips overlooking the sea.

Looking forward to our next trip.

Lovely apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Dalmore House is a lovely apartment which overlooks Elie harbour - my family enjoyed two weeks of relaxing and exploring the area. I spent many a happy hour sat on the terrace, watching the scene on the beach, writing my book, drinking coffee - does it get any better? The apartment is well appointed and Kate and her team looked after us really well. There is no doubt we'll be back.

Beautiful holiday home with spectacular sea views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in the East Neuk. We have been coming to Elie for more than a decade, but this was our first time in Dalmore.

The house is beautiful, and the fresh flowers waiting for us made a lovely welcome.

The views of the sea and beach are magnificent- when the tide was in I felt I was part of the sea.

Dalmore is very close to the Ship Inn and to Water Sports. Elie being small, everything is handy !

I look forward to a return visit to Dalmore hopefully in the near future.

Golf: FIFE can offer you some of the finest golf courses in Scotland, if not the world. It would be difficult to find a town or village in Fife that does not have a golf course. Elie, boasts 2 golf courses, a 9 hole and an 18 hole. The golf here is in keeping with the holiday atmosphere where enjoyment is the main priority. The real character of the golf course is a stretch that takes golfers out to the sea and, with a wind off the Firth of Forth, leaves one in no doubt as to its seaside character. The Old Course St Andrews 20 minutes drive away is traditionally known as the most famous golf club in the world and has hosted the Open Golf Championship on many occasions. A few miles away you will discover a selection of other delightful Fife golf courses well worth considering such as Ladybank, Crail and Leven Links.
