Rockhopper Cottage is a gem of a little cottage situated right on the beach with direct access from the patio. Apart from the panoramic sea views the cottage has to offer, it has recently been modernised inside to provide all the comforts of home with tasteful bright and fresh decor and furnishings.

There are two bedrooms, - the master bedroom (can be a superking or two singles) has stunning sea views and you will wake up in the morning to the sound, smell and view of the sea from your bed. The ground floor has been thoughtfully furnished with comfy seating, modern galley kitchen, table and chairs next to the patio doors which again look out to sea. From here you can access a small South sea facing patio and grassy lawn with steps down to the beach. For cosy winters there is a focal point around gas stove which looks just like a real wood burner without the hard work!!

With the beach on your doorstep this is an ideal base for families, couples seeking a romantic break and dog walkers alike. A well behaved dog is permitted on the ground floor. The local pub is just a few hundred yards away serving good local fayre, and within a radius of a few miles there are a wealth of other great restaurants and cafes to choose from. There is a local shop in the village. The historic town of St Andrews is just a 20 minute drive, and equally close are all the beautiful fishing villages along the East Neuk coastline which all have their individual character.
