This was not my first venture into this abode, the pinnacle of accommodation in the East Neuk. Having now stayed in the giants of hospitality such as the Fairmont Hotel, and The Old Course, I can safely declare this as the finest. Our party enjoyed not only the incredible 4 floors of kerith, but also the Anstruther location as a whole. We made many trips around the local business’ and particularly enjoyed the lively men in the RNLI gift shop. I wholeheartedly reccomend this haven to you.

I came to Kerith for a short weekend away with friends, and this beautiful conversion was the perfect place to relax. The rooms were spacious and full of natural light, with incredible high ceilings too. A couple of the bedrooms even boast quaint rooftop and sea views. The place was clean and wonderfully decorated in a seaside theme. It’s in an ideal location; just a short walk to the beach, caves, RNLI shop, and great pub ‘The Haven’. The kitchen was very well equipped and we spent some quality time cooking meals together. The brilliant entertainment system also enabled a few dance parties and movie nights. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and hope to come back in the future.

Have just returned from a long weekend in Cellardyke staying in the delightful Kerith holiday rental. The house has been beautiful converted with plenty room to relax. The rooms are spacious and accessorized in a seaside theme. The owner was easy to contact and prompt answering questions. Location is great for exploring the East Neuk. Would definitely recommend.

Everything we needed for our week in Anstruther. This gorgeous holiday home was exactly as described. The beautifully decorated and comfortable home made a perfect base for our Fife area golf vacation - within thirty minutes of dozens of authentic links golf courses, many of them world class and some hidden gems like Leven Links. Anstruther is a delightful fishing village and home of the popular Anstruther Fish Bar. We actually preferred the fish and chips at the Boathouse a few doors down, or The Haven which is even closer to Kerith Cottage. There is a yummy (and friendly) bakery and a corner shop just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage and a bus stop that seemed to connect to almost anywhere in Fife.

Excellent restaurants and beaches within walking distance of Kerith.
A fascinating trip to the May Island from Anstruther . All the villages in the East Neuk are worth a visit - each with its own character. The coastal walk is most enjoyable Plenty places to visit if the weather is inclement - Fisheries Museum , Secret Bunker and the many attractions in St Andrews which is only 9 miles from Cellardyke.
East Fife has a lower rainfall than most of Scotland.


The location is superb - handy for all the beautiful fishing villages and beaches of the east neuk of Fife. The house is very well equipped and spacious for a large group. Five adults and 4 children had plenty of space to enjoy the break. The children loved playing hide and seek on the many floors and several rooms. We will definately be back!

Six friends and I enjoyed a fantastic holiday to Kerith. Upon arrival we were stunned by the simple yet breathtaking architecture and the resplendent interior design, not to mention the cleanliness of the house. I have special appreciation for the mezzanine and the abundant natural lighting that made for a holiday to remember. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed to self cater, and the house in general a plethora of supplies to accommodate for any situation. The top floor provides a fantastic area either for kids or a relaxing room to reflect. All the bedrooms were warm and inviting, coupled with a brilliant bathroom. Finally the modern entertainment system created a captivating space to watch films as a group. I would definitely recommend staying in Kerith to all parties! However the Fish and Chips were a disappointment.


Modern house in a historical building. A home from home with everything needed to have a comfortable stay. Spotlessly clean, Ikea style furnishing throughout, lots of room and although we didn't have any with us, we noticed child locks and gate were present. There were sofa's everywhere and the owner could easily sell this for much more than 8. Loved the big TV and also the modern well fitted kitchen. Don't be put of that the house is in Cellardyke if you are visiting Anstruther, the harbour is only a 5-10min walk.

We stayed at Kerith with my family to celebrate my Dad's birthday - 5 adults, a toddler and a baby. The house was great; spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped, including baby/toddler equipment and lots of board games. The mezzanine was a lovely chill out place (and was also turned into a castle by our toddler!) We had a nice picnic in the front garden and enjoyed a peaceful walk around Cellardyke. The location was great too and was just a short walk into Anstruther.

Having a busy life, Kerith is a great place to have a break to unwind. No parking problems, with our own spaces at the rear of the house. With four bedrooms to choose from, we settled for the four poster bedroom with en-suite. The room was very comfortable and we slept extremely well. In the mornings it was just great to open the bedroom blinds and look out to sea. The kitchen is huge with everything you need available. We ate in the kitchen, but there is also a good sized table and chairs in the front room. We were out and about during the day with a visit to The Links Clubhouse at St Andrews, the Cheese Farm and Crail, so we were very happy to make use of the jigsaws, games and many books available and relax at night. Absolutely super house to stay in and loads of space for families.

We have stayed many times in the East Neuk of Fife over many years, and without doubt, Kerith is top of our list to revisit. Spacious accommodation providing everything we needed. Ideally situated for the short walk to Anstruther, the Fife coastal path, and a bus stop minutes from the house for the bus to St Andrews. So peaceful and relaxing with lovely view out to sea from upstairs. Look forward to our next holiday in Kerith

We stayed at Kerith for a long weekend with friends. The house definitely had the wow factor - incredibly spacious, beautifully presented and in an excellent location. You can walk to Anstruther in minutes. The owner very kindly supplied extras for our toddler which gave us peace of mind knowing that he was safe and sound in such a large house. The beds were really comfy and the bathrooms beautiful. Kitchen fantastic - lots of crockery, utensils etc. Everything you could possibly need for a very relaxing and comfortable weekend. We will definitely be back.

Spent a long weekend with friends at this fantastic house in February. The house and decor are fresh clean and stunning. Really spacious and the extra little touches were very appreciated. We also really appreciated the relaxed approach of the owners, I appreciate at high season this may not be possible but for us, no regulations on arriving and leaving times was really appreciated plus coffee, tea milk soaps etc really nice. Anstruther and cellardyke were lovely with a good selection of nice eating and pubs. We walked up the coast one day and down the coast the next and returned via the regular bus service. This is by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed at and such good value for money.

We have just come back from a long weekend at Kerith. The house is lovely and in a great location in Cellardyke. It was a cold weekend and the house was lovely and warm. It has everything you need. As the building used to be a school the layout is quite unusual - really nice. If you stay there you won't be disappointed.


Spent a couple of nights at this lovely house with my wife. The location is ideal as it offers a quite and relaxing position. Gr8 for exploring the East Neuk of Fife as well as reasonable travelling distance to St Andrew's. The property itself is very well equipped, comfortable, and well maintained. The design allows you to have a social time together as well as finding some areas for private relaxation. The essentials such as kitchen, bedroom and toilet facilities are first class. Cellardyke (actual location of property) seamlessly joins onto Anstruther where there are plenty of eating places (world famous chippy), shops and pubs. Never far from the beach and the Fife coastal path this property is idea for walkers. Loved my stay.

We just loved our stay at Kerith. From the minute we opened the door into the kitchen we have a feeling of space, and there is plenty of space in Kerith. Plenty of areas to chill out.
The kitchen is big and has everything you would want including a dishwasher and washing machine. As well as the en-suite there is, unusually, a choice of walk-in-shower or bath in the family bathroom, and on the ground floor there is a very handy toilet. There are plenty games, books and jigsaws to enjoy. Your own parking spaces are at the rear of the house. We found Kerith very relaxing, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is so much to do around this area and Kerith is a great house to stay in to explore the East Neuk of Fife.
