Luxury beach cottages in Fife are difficult to come by

Beach cottages have a special magic about them. There is something about living close to the sea, listening to the sound of the waves on the beach, getting sand between your toes, feeling the fresh sea breeze in your face, and generally adjusting life to the daily rythmn of the tide coming in and the tide going out.

The days seem longer and calmer by the sea. The light softer, time more your own. Often you seem to get round to things you really love doing but never seem to have time. Families get together and the weather comes and goes.

Elie cottage is one of the best luxury beach cottages in Fife. Dating back to the 1850s the cottage has been recently renovated to an exceptionally high standard and sleeps 8-10 with 4-5 bedrooms.

Set just back from the beach the cottage benefits from an aspect sheltered from the sea with a sunny private back garden that leads directly down to the sand without having to cross any roads. Kids spend all day on the beach, digging holes, building sandcastles and crabbing in the rock pools.
