This terraced house is south-facing, and the courtyard is ideal for al fresco dining or just relaxing with a glass of wine on sunny days.

There is lots to explore on foot from your doorstep, with quaint wynds and lanes in the old fishing village of Cellardyke, as well as the bustling Anstruther harbour area within five minutes’ walk, where there are eating places to suit all tastes, from an award-winning fish and chip shop to a Michelin starred restaurant, cafés, bars, local shops and galleries. From April to September there are daily ferries and boat trips leaving from Anstruther that take you to the Isle of May, which is a National Nature Reserve and home to colonies of sea birds, including puffins, and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies; well worth a visit.

Perfect for walkers and cyclists there is the Fife Coastal Path, which runs through the village and leads in either direction to secluded coves, little fishing villages, and white sandy beaches. The Millennium Cycle Way runs through central Fife, with miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore along the way in this most picturesque and historic areas of Fife.

St Andrews is only 9 miles away and makes a great day out, with excellent shopping facilities as well as numerous restaurants, pubs and bistros. There are many historic buildings to visit both in the city centre and in the surrounding area. Famous as being the home of golf, golfers will enjoy visiting the British Golf Museum or playing on one of the championship courses. Water sports are available locally, with sea kayaking and open canoeing along the shore.

“Our second visit. A very comfortable and well equipped house. Excellent parking and good information and travel advice from the owner.”

“Harbour View is a perfect holiday hideaway. Tucked away in the square, with ample parking, you can leave the car and walk, shop, take the bus with no anxiety about where to leave the car. The patio is a sun trap and perfect for relaxing with a cup of tea (or something stronger) after a days outing. Its very well equipped for any meal you might rustle up after going to Ardross farm shop!! I cant wait to make a return visit.”
