Silverburn Park is one of Fife’s best kept secrets, but quickly becoming the place to be. Tucked in off the A915 between Lundin Links and Leven en route to St Andrews. Sitting on the beach at Leven, close to the FIfe Coastal Path it has everything you need for a family day out, an active day of biking or walking or just quiet reflection among the trees or by the sea.
A stunning 27 acre park with mature mixed woodland including an impressive collection of giant redwoods. A manicured walled garden, inspirational allotments and a newly refurbished family friendly campsite with 12 tent pitches, three eco pods, four campervan pitches, toilet and shower facilities.
Park managers, Fife Employment Access Trust, (FEAT) run a programme of events at the park designed to create a space of wellbeing and community, including the annual Silverburn Music Festival, ( a melting pot of local talent), a Winter Festival, an Arts and Crafts Fair in the Autumn plus walks, tours and workshops throughout the year. The Cottage Window Cafe and the Flax Mill Tearoom are open all year too, serving freshly made espresso coffees and teas and delicious home baking. The park is also sitting pretty right by the beach and there is a bike hire scheme if you want to take a ride along the coastal path.
It was originally the family estate of the Russell family who gifted the park to the people of Fife and is currently undergoing a huge fund-raising push to develop the former flaxmill on site into a visitor centre, backpackers, hostel and restaurant.
