The ideal location for a seaside holiday, Kannier Cottage is a detached holiday cottage, in an elevated position, overlooking the quiet conservation village of St Monans and the Firth of Forth. From your doorstep you can explore this picturesque village with its harbour and charming 17th and 18th century red pantiled buildings, enjoy a coffee on the harbourside or freshly caught seafood from the award-winning restaurant.

There are lovely coastal walks on the Fife Coastal Path which takes you to award-winning sandy beaches, pretty coves and historic buildings along the way. For keen cyclists, the Millennium Cycle Way runs through central Fife, with miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore. Just a little further along the coast is the bustling tourist harbour town of Anstruther and there are daily ferries and boat trips leaving between April and September that take you to the Isle of May, which is a National Nature Reserve. It is home to colonies of sea birds including puffins and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies. St Andrews is just 10 miles away and is well worth a visit with historic buildings, Sea Life Centre, boutique shops, and a wide range of bars and restaurants. This area is famous for its golf, with more than 40 golf courses in Fife, from the famous fairways of St Andrews to several traditional links courses and beautifully landscaped parkland and heathland courses.

Having spent your day exploring the area you can relax in the first floor seating area and enjoy the views with a glass of wine. The enclosed garden is a suntrap on warm days and a great place for the children to play. If sea food is on your menu, you can purchase locally caught fish and the dining room is ideal for you all to enjoy that special meal and plan the next day’s activities. Beach 250 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 250 yards.

There are two steps at the front of the property, three steps to the patio and one step at the back of the property. There is one step down to the dining room, one step up to the breakfast room and one step down to the ensuite.

“Great holiday location. Nice house, clean and tidy.”
— Joanna, 2 May 2022
“This is a very comfortable and traditional property, very well equipped and spacious. Good quality bedding and towels and very clean. The Welcome Pack was generous and the Easter decorations thoughtful even although our party had no children! Plenty of breakout space for us, six adults and a dog, and great outdoor space for families. Excellent location as always.”

“A beautiful comfortable home from home with lovely welcome treats on your arrival. We were there at the end of March and the house was lovely and warm. Perfect secure garden for our dog too. The area is ideal for coastal walks and there is a restaurant, cafe and shops in St Monans with more in the nearby villages of Pittenweem and Anstruther.”

“Spent a lovely holiday in Kannier Cottage with the family. The house is very big with lots of bedrooms and several communal rooms. The view from the upstairs is stunning. Very comfy, an older style family home. Close to the beach and there are lots of lovely walks around! There is a nice fresh fish van next door as well, for your dinner!”

“The cottage was roomy,it was a nice size. The settees were reasonably comfortable but to low to floor. There was no instructions on what was what around the place, that was a small detail though. Nice size garden very quite area. Great to just walk down to harbor and alone the coastal path. If taken dog no information for where vets are if needed. But we did see where one was.”

“Wonderful cottage, it is like a Tardis huge inside. Great views of the sea and Bass Rock from upstairs lounge and the main lounge downstairs. Two tables a formal and informal great for families. 4 bedrooms , two are doubles, lovely clean white bedlinen. Lots of towels and the kitchen is one of the best equipped I have ever stayed in. Loads of crockery, utensils cafetiere's. A dishwasher at your disposal with tablets provided. It has clearly been a loved family home and there are some quirky features and knick knacks, but this just adds to the charm. Nice welcome pack on arrival , fresh milk, cake and biscuits all local produce. There was tea and coffee always very helpful when arriving in a new place. Games for the children and adults, even colouring pens. Cannot fault the facilities or cleanliness at all. Lots of leaflets on the local area, information on the cottage and a contact mobile for the local caretaker who was very helpful. Contained garden great for pets and kids. Just be mindful this area seems to close its restaurants, cafes on a Monday to Wednesday. We didn't manage to book at the two eateries' in the village, so plan ahead. May be a short term Covid issue. Brilliant holiday in a lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Would return tomorrow.”

“Very comfortable and well equipped house. Lovely location with beautiful sea views. The house comfortably sleeps 7 people and is spacious with 4 bedrooms, lounge, large kitchen, separate dining room and large garden great for families.”
— Emma, 8 August 2021
“A delightful cottage at a reasonable price. This house comfortable fits seven people and was warm and welcoming when we arrived. Lots of clean fresh towels & bedding too. It has a large driveway to park your vehicle and the location is only minutes walk down to the harbour. Yes its a little tired and the glasses are old like one reviewer said but thats part of the character. Its obviously been a family home at some point with lots of personal touches. If thats not your thing and you want brand new then go to a premier inn where the glasses will probably be new and from IKEA.”
