Holiday Rental House
Folly Cottage is more than 200 years old, named after a folly on the hill behind the house. It lies in Colinsburgh, a quaint East Neuk village full of pretty painted cottages with crow step gables. There are views over the beautiful Balcarres estate behind the property. There is a cosy kitchen diner, a comfortable living room with French doors out to the garden, and upstairs a very large double bedroom with ample storage space, and a smaller twin room. The pretty bathroom is upstairs too. Gas central heating and a wood burning stove have just been installed so it is very cosy. The sun trap garden has a full set of garden furniture, and a shed with barbecue set. Perfect for the school holidays! This is a great base for exploring the East Neuk, with the beaches of Elie, golf courses, quirky...Folly Cottage is more than 200 years old, named after a folly on the hill behind the house.

The sun trap garden has a full set of garden furniture, and a shed with barbecue set. Perfect for the school holidays! This is a great base for exploring the East Neuk, with the beaches of Elie, golf courses, quirky shops, fine dining, countryside walks all within a few minutes drive. Colinsburgh itself has a well stocked shop, a pub, the only local garage, and a community cinema in the Town Hall. It is 5 minutes walk to Charlton golf course, and just a little further to the 2 courses in Elie. Of course St Andrews, home of golf, is just 15 minutes by car, and you have 7 courses there to choose from. Pittenweem has galleries and cafes including the outstanding Cocoa Tree, with fabulous hot chocolate. The East Pier Smokehouse and Craig Millar's restaurant 16 are in St Monans for fine dining. The Cheese Farm is just along the road, for more than cheese, great lunches too. Ardross Farm shop can supply every need and Barnett's artisan breads are justly famous - feta and beetroot is one of my favourites. Kellie Castle with its wonderful garden is well worth a visit. Genteel Crail along the coast tempts with teashops and souvenirs. More

Interaction with guests
I leave the keys in a key safe for visitors but I live locally and can easily come to meet guests and offer advice and help. I can recommend local activities, sights and places to eat. If you have any questions about this lovely area of Scotland just ask!

How to get there
This is a rural area where it will be easier to get around by car. There is a bus service from very close to the cottage, with links to Leven and Anstruther. There are train stations at Leuchars and Markinch, both about 25 minutes away by car. There is free parking at both stations and travelling by train is the best way to have a day out in Edinburgh as parking in the city is not easy. There is free on street parking just outside the cottage in Colinsburgh.
