Lovely house in a perfect area

  • 5 of 5

Spacious boutique house which is stylishly decorated. It was absolutely ideal for our weekend away with 3 other couples to celebrate a birthday. Stones throw from the harbour and half of our group went fishing from the pier each day. Huge kitchen/dining area with everything you could possible need for cooking. Lovely comfortable beds and linens. One main parking space right next to the house and we had no problem at all finding additional parking on streets close by. There is an enclosed private garden to the side of the house with a BBQ, table and chairs for 8 which we didn't use but I imagine it would get good mid-day sun. Would not hesitate to book again in the future.

4golfers staying for 1week

  • 4 of 5

This was a good choice for us, 4 beds and 2 and 1/2 bathes in a quaint fishing village near St. Andrews Scotland. Drives were easy to all golf courses and shopping for food close in Anstruther 5 miles away. You need a car. Only real complaint was the worn ,somewhat stained carpet and the lack of a good pasta cooking pot. Would recommend it however.

Fantastic property

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic property in the seaside village of St Monan's. Spacious, nicely modernised with very comfortable beds. We had a girly weekend here and had a wonderful time. St Monan's is a lovely fishing village right on the Fife Coastal route. If you walk South to Elie, be sure to stop off at the Adross Farm shop which is amazing. Also, a meal at the East Pier is highly recommended - amazing seafood. All in all a great weekend - would definitely return!

Fabulous Property spacious and so comfortable

  • 4 of 5

7 girlfirends and myself stayed at Driftwood Cottage to celebrate my "Big Birthday". The house is just fabulous with spacious rooms and is so well equiped. Very well located for walking and for visiting St Andrews. The kitchen/diningroom/family area is just a great space to hang out while cooking/eating/chatting. I would have no hestation in recommending this cottage to others it really is well worth the money.

Great weekend, in a lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

Spent a lovely 3 night break at driftwood with a group of friends to celebrate our 40th birthday. The house was decorated beautifully and the layout was excellent for our needs. The kitchen, downstairs was equipped with every imaginable utensil, some of which we could only guess the purpose. The added bonus of the small garden with barbeque was lovely and had the weather been better I am sure we would have used it more.
