Superbly well appointed centuries-old cottage in the classy seaside village of Elie in the ever-popular East Neuk of Fife.
The villages of Elie & Earlsferry are an ancient Royal Burgh. Between them they have four beaches with the main beach providing a vast expanse of sand and hundreds of interesting rock pools at low tide. Elie Cricket Club play their home games on the Harbour beach during the Summer months keenly watched by dozens enjoying lunch in the sun on the terrace of the Ship Inn.
