The sitting room has an open log fire and is very large, and 3 of the 4 windows have window seats you can spend hours watching the harbour life and beyond. We have seen whales and dolphins from here as they make their way up the Forth. There is a massive leather sofa and large armchairs, a plasma TV and DVD. We also provide free Broadband wireless internet.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has a range cooker, American fridge feezer with unlimited ice crushed or cubed. The oak dining table overlooks St Monans harbour. An MP3 sound system in here helps to create ambience for dinner parties.
All the bedrooms are spacious, light and airy and have Sealy beds which are extremely good quality to aid your relaxation after a long day out in the fresh sea air (lots of compliments in visitor book about how comfy the beds are!!!)

A lovely week in the house, a real home from home. Made even more special with two visits to Craig Millars restaurant - other end of the harbour - and no need for a taxi home. A very special time
We had a lovely time. The house is super and in a great location.

Had a brilliant week. House so comfortable and the weather very kind indeed - but think it would be great whatever the weather like!
Celebrated Lilians 83rd. Lovely comfortable house, with great views, Stunning location. Happy time!
As ever, a perfect place to unwind. Weather has been wonderful! Walks are second to none and my bed gives me the best sleep ever!! First time in a wetsuit in the harbour - very refreshing. Book us in for next year!!

A lovely weekend celebrating Donalds 50th birthday with the family. Excellent lunch at Kilconquhar Castle
We really enjoyed relaxing here at 1 Midshore and exploring the East Neuk, finding treasures of shells, glass and stone, local artists, coco tree cafe, windmill, cafe and two great freestyle skate parks (St Monans and Pittenweem) thoroughly enjoyed giving the kids so much freedom and recommend Craig Millers restaurant in St Monans.
