About this listing

Wonderful newly refurbished detached 2-bed cottage in Elie, on the beautiful East Neuk of Fife. With private garden, and just 400 yards from the Elie beach, this is a wonderful holiday location.

The space

Helena Cottage is a lovely 2-bedroom detached cottage located in the picturesque village of Elie. Located at the Earlsferry end of Elie, it is in a quiet location just off Links Rd next to the golf course. It is just a two minute walk from the award winning blue flag sandy beach and the well regarded 19th Hole Bar and Restaurant. It is an ideal holiday base for couples and families alike to enjoy Elie & all that Fife has to offer.

The cottage is fully double-glazed, has free wifi, and comprises open plan lounge/dining/kitchen with extendable dining room table & chairs and wooden flooring. The contemporary fitted kitchen includes a new gas hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher, new fridge with freezer compartment, and all the new crockery/glasses and kitchenware you could need for your stay. The lounge is also very comfortable, with a 4-seater corner sofa bed (can sleep max 2, 1 comfortably), wall mounted freeview TV, and DAB radio.

Off the hallway is the double bedroom, through which you access the adjoining twin bedroom – both are well furnished, with alarm/clock radio and hairdryer in main double bedroom, and wall-mounted TV with built-in DVD player in the twin bedroom. Also off the hall is the refurbished bathroom, with excellent shower.

Patio doors open out to the small sheltered courtyard garden, with table and chairs for relaxing in the sun – a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Elie’s typically sunny weather.

Laundry facilities are provided, with washer/dryer machine in the utility store, iron/board/hi-dri available and outdoor washing line. The property also has a travel cot and high-chair available on request.

The cottage is all on the ground level and located down a short gravel footpath, so offers a nice quiet stay, suitable for all ages. Dogs/pets welcome by arrangement, and subject to an additional fee of £25. If you would like to bring your dog/pet, please advise this in inquiry, so that can amend quote accordingly.

Elie has a lot to offer – golf, tennis, putting, library, bowling, bike hire, watersports centre, beach activities, coastal walks including the famous “chain walk” and of course there are a number of wonderful local restaurants, cafes and pubs. As well as nearby St Andrews which is only a 20 minute drive away. Elie is a perfect location for exploring the East Neuk of Fife.

Guest access

The cottage and garden area are all yours during the stay. Access to keys is through a coded keybox – for security of other guests, the code will be provided one week before your stay.

Other things to note

  • Changeover day is Saturday, so weekly bookings start/end on Saturday unless by alternative arrangement. Part-week bookings are available off peak, and usually either start or end on a Saturday.
  • Twin room is accessed via main king bedroom.
  • Sofa bed for additional 1 person (max 2).
  • Pets accepted by agreement, there is an enclosed garden.

  • Took some time to find but worth it. Had traveled alone, family members recently suggested a get together at St. Andrews, had not seen them for 10 yrs so ideal to have the flexible accommodation, able to have sister, niece and nephew for a night to have the last minute reunion. Easy access to beach for swimming, 19th hole for a meal, and pavilion for breakfast

    – Aileen, June 2021

  • The accommodation is modern furnished and self contained, with everything you could need. It is quiet and located off the links road down a lane. We were delighted with the accommodation.
