The Space

The Cupboard is a beautiful tiny weavers cottage, dating from circa 1850. It has been completely renewed internally in 2019. The new high-spec interior - with vaulted roof space - comprises an open plan living area with a wood burner and clever little kitchen corner, luxurious mezzanine sleeping gallery, funky bunk room, and stylish shower room.   Little luxuries include Smart TV with Netflix, WiFi, Alexa box, and Nespresso coffee maker.  The cottage, whilst bijoux and very cosy, has been redesigned to create a brighter and more spacious feel. Everything you need to make a little home away from home has been cleverly incorporated in the funky layout.  The bright and open living area incorporates seating area with a luxurious sofa and chair, a dining corner by the window, and stylish, compact kitchen area. it is the perfect place to relax after a day on the beach or walking the coastal path. The kitchen corner has been created to minimise wasted space and is ideal for preparing and serving simple meals. It has a portable hob and oven which can be stowed away when not in use.  There is also a Nespresso coffee maker with capsules for your enjoyment.   The vaulted open roof-space creates a spacious feel. Boasting front and rear remote control and weather sensitive Velux windows with black out blinds, you can control the environment as the weather and light changes. A fine Charnwood wood burning stove offers you the comfort of a real fire on a cooler evening, whilst the bespoke lighting in the roof-space creates a true feeling of comfort and relaxation.

The mezzanine sleeping gallery is the perfect place to rest, with the noise of the sea floating in the bedside window as you sleep. NOTE THE STAIR LADDER IS 7 FEET HIGH SO NOT SUITABLE FOR LESS MOBILE GUESTS.  The small bunk room accessed via beautifully renovated Crital doors, offers accommodation for two children in funky bunk beds.   The small but we'll designed washing and shower room, with beautiful wood panelling and antique features, finishes the cottage off in luxurious style. Suitable for families, holiday-makers and golfers alike. Free Wifi in the property. The accommodation layouts are as follows:

Ground Floor - 1 double loft bedroom, 1 bedroom with bunk beds and a alcove for a young child, 1 shower, open-plan kitchen/lounge. Guests will have full access to the entire property. No rooms will be off limits and all contents within the flat are there for our guests use including wifi, the TV and the cooking implements. Smoking is not permitted within the property. I expect all guests to respect the property and our neighbours. Pets are allowed for a small charge. 

The Neighbourhood

Elie and Earlsferry are two of the most picturesque towns in the East Neuk with a beautiful long sandy beach and a pretty little harbour.  The golf links are the feature that joins the beautiful villages of Earlsferry and Elie and the local population are justifiably proud of their ancient course. The course has evolved over the centuries from a simple links golfing tract in the 1500s to the fine 18 hole course it is today.  Elie town centre has lots of little shops ranging from the Elie Deli, Carol's Ice Cream Shop and the pharmacy, all the way to The Ship by the Harbour with its beach cricket and good food.  Everything in Elie and Earlsferry is within walking distance, be it the Elie Ness Lighthouse, the beaches, the Links golf course and many more facilities. The bus routes are all frequent and easy to use. Taxis are available to the surrounding towns and St Andrews. 15 mins walk to Elie town centre, 5 mins walk to Elie Golf Course and less than 1 mins walk to the long, sandy Elie/Earlsferry Beach. Supermarket available in Anstruther, but lots of small local shops in Elie will provide most of what you will need.
