“Perfect family retreat”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From start to finish, our stay was truly perfect in every way. From the customer service from the owner Simon, to the actual accommodation that was absolutely stunning, inside and out.The attention to detail with first class furnishings and accessories was unbelievable.They have thought of everything. There were even white fluffy bathrobes in a variety of sizes for the KIDS! We could have easily moved in ;) We had hired the house to celebrate our parents' 70th birthdays and we all had such a wonderful time.We would recommend the use of a car as there are many lovely nearby places to visit for a nice meal etc.We have already been recommending this to our friends and hope to return again soon.

We always love to hear from guests who stay with us for special occasions - and a double 70th birthday sounds just great! As parents ourselves, we know just how important it is to get the little details right for the little ones - so we know just how popular those gowns are! Thank you so much for staying at Treescape and taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you - and maybe your friends? - back here soon.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Rented Treescape for three days in June, truly this is a fab place to stay, beautifully presented, spotlessly clean, spacious, quality beds bedding, towels etc, Treescape meets every requirement, could not fault it in any way, provided a peaceful environment, children loved the space, toys etc, even down to the little bathrobes provided in their wardrobe. Easy walk into Elie which has everything you might need. We will return. Thanks Simon.

It's really good of you to take the time to write this review. We're so glad you had a great time. The one word I picked up on straight away in your review was 'peaceful'. Even if you're there with lots of noisy children, the house and its setting just seem to make your time there so relaxed.

“The perfect holiday home for a family vacation”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My family and I had a fantastic time staying in Treescape, Elie. The house is the perfect place to stay for a week and the grounds offer plenty of space for kids. My nephews and nieces played out the back and out the front of the house, in the woods (the perfect place for an Easter Egg hunt) and spent hours riding the bikes that were provided. Day trips to Kingsbarns beach, Crail and the pool at Leven kept the kids and adults amused, although we could have spent the week without getting in a car as Elie beach and the beautiful coastal path are only 20 minutes walk from the house. The house is decorated to a very high standard, the beds were extremely comfortable and there was plenty of bathrooms for all 12 of us. The house is spacious and is ideal for large groups. Every member of my family had a wonderful, memorable holiday and we were all very sad to leave.

Beaches, Easter egg hunts, bike rides...it sounds like you had an idyllic family holiday. As well as all the outdoor stuff (which the East Neuk has in abundance), it's good that you mention Leven pool. That's a great facility to have close-by for those (obviously very rare!) rainy days. Thanks for your kind review.

“Exceeded our high expectations!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a feeling our stay at the Treescape was going to be good as soon as we booked. The website provided us with everything we needed to know and Simon was very quick to respond to a couple of queries.

The house is fantastic and has everything to provide a stress free and relaxing stay (from full sky package, a lovely arrival hamper from the local deli and a high spec fully kitted out kitchen to name just a few things). We were very impressed at all of the bits and pieces for children (high chair, toy box, cutlery and cots) as we had 3 in our group. We spent quite a bit of time enjoying the gardens and grounds and residents were very friendly to us.

The location is great and it's just a 5 minute walk to the high street and 10 minutes to the beach. We wouldn't change a thing about the Treescape and would highly recommend it!

Thanks for taking the time to post; it means a lot to us. Treescape really is perfect for families (I know because ours is there as often as possible!) and I'm so glad you had a lovely blend of activities both within the grounds and beyond. Thanks again.

“Stunning property in magnificent grounds.”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is truly a luxury property with every facility you could ever want and very stylishly presented. It looks good, feels good and by jolly it does you good! The setting amongst manicured lawns and mature woodlands was ever so peaceful and relaxing. The spacious 5 bedroom house is lavished with designer furnishings of the highest quality and is ever so comfortable. It was really easy to relax indoors or outdoors as the two spaces seamlessly harmonise, with the interior decoration ideally fusing with the magnificent arboreal and lawned setting of the house. The extensive floor to ceiling picture windows in all of the rooms provided wonderful panoramas and light. It was a great joy to watch the deer grazing on adjoining pastureland as dusk fell and red squirrels scampering over the lawns to take refuge in the magnificent trees.

The house was stunning, wonderful, magnificent.......you just run out of superlatives to describe it and Elie was breathtakingly beautiful also. The east Neuk of Fife provided a wonderful holiday opportunity with striking seaside towns, rural villages and very picturesque countryside.

Thank you Treescape Elie for nine wonderful days holiday. By FAR the best holiday apartment we have been to anywhere.

We're blushing over here! Seriously though, many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. Your description of the wildlife and the beautiful combination of woodland and open spaces chime so perfectly with the way we view Treescape and the wider Elie House estate. We love being there - and we love that you did too!
