Elie Cottage 4 BR is a luxury seaside Holiday Rental Cottage set just back off the award winning Blue Flag beach in the picturesque village of Elie in the East Neuk of Fife. Elie is just a short drive from the Royal Burgh of St Andrews and Scotland's capital Edinburgh.
The cottage has recently been refurbished and extended to an extremely high standard. Sleeping 8 in 4 BR the cottage is over 150 years old. The safe, secluded and sunny private back garden make it an ideal base for families to relax on the beach, with water sports, golf, tennis and many other outdoor activities nearby.
If you are staying at Elie Cottage (or any other Elie self catering) and a fan of fine food and wine then a night out at Sangsters is must do. Just a stone’s throw back from the beach in the centre of Elie High Street, Bruce Sangster’s eponymous restaurant feels like a cross between a Scottish front lounge and a French auberge. Bruce works tirelessly to create inventive, taste driven dishes, while his wife Jacqueline attentively looks after front of house. Menus are fixed price and refreshingly to the point. The cooking is sharp, modern and precise – with starters such as twice-baked cheese soufflé made with Isle of Mull Cheddar or Ross-shire scallops with a oriental hit of chilli, ginger, galangal and coriander. Mains include Scotch beef fillet with red cabbage compote, onion marmalade and potato gratin or North Sea halibut with creamed leeks, bacon and vermouth sauce, and for desserts, think caramelised apple pastry with Calvados custard and apple sorbet or a tasting of oranges involving parfait, salad, crisp and Cointreau syrup. The array of dishes, which is usually three choices to each course, changes every three or four days as the menu evolves with the seasons. Booking is essential at any time especially if you are Fife self catering . Click here to go to contact.
