Nestled in the most idyllic location, Avoncliffe is perfectly placed for all your holiday expectations.
The beach and play-park at Roome Bay can be easily reached within seconds of stepping out of the front or rear of the property and without having to cross any roads in either direction. There are wonderful, scenic seaside walks in both directions. The centre of Crail with all its amenities and the harbour are a 5 minute stroll through the old part of town. The Fife coastal path leads south west to the other picturesque East Neuk fishing villages of Cellardyke, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie with Fife Ness, Kingsbarns and St Andrews in the other direction.
This gem of a cottage is in a prime location and has sweeping, commanding views from all the main rooms with the Firth of Forth and the Isle of May in one direction and an unspoiled valley with the old houses of Crail to the other. There are several seating areas around the gardens to capture the sun at various times of the day. The patio area in front of the Bay windows has wonderful views over the gardens to the Firth of Forth and beyond. The lawns slope gently down to a small wooded area at the bottom of the garden from where there is direct access through the garden gate to the Fife Coastal path. From here it is a stones throw to the sandy beach and the crabbing pond which is always a favourite with children.

What people have said about the selected property...
Mr & Mrs McGill
Thank you for the prompt return of the security deposit. We would just like to say how much we enjoyed our Christmas holiday in Avoncliffe. It is a lovely house and it was very kind of the owner to have all the Christmas touches - they were very much appreciated. The house is very well equipped and so comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely return to the East Neuk.
Mr & Mrs Brown
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Avoncliffe. A lovely house in a nice area. I enjoyed my walk along the coastal path in the mornings after collecting my daily paper, and we enjoyed eating out at The Ship Inn, Craig Millar's, Anstruther Golf Club and Rufflets in St Andrews. September 2018
Mr & Mrs Romanes
We had a lovely, restful holiday at Avoncliffe with no problems. We visited a number of places in the locality and even the strong winds on the Thursday didn't keep us in. We are grateful to you for recommending Avonclife to us; it met with our criteria, all on the one level, walk-in shower and good sized bed. The property was well-equipped and comfortable. Thanks very much for all your help. June 2018
