Nearby attractions include the Hill of Tarvit Mansion House, a fascinating National Trust house and gardens with Hatters Edwardian Tearoom and a 9 hole ‘Hickory’ golf course, the Fife Falconry Centre, and horse riding in the village. There are excellent footpaths for walking and cycling with stunning views of coast and countryside, whilst the Tents Muir National Nature Reserve has a fabulous walk along the beach to Tentsmuir Point where hundreds of seals can be seen basking on the sandbars. Visit The Eden Estuary Centre and Morton Lochs and watch waterfowl from dedicated bird hides.

Had amazing holiday , the cottage was one of the best we have stayed in, the bed was super comfy as were the sofas. Lovely surprise having shortbread, tea cakes lovely fresh coffee and tea, what a lovely gesture from the owner, lots of other extras left . It was a lovely little village the people were very friendly and the tea rooms in the village are very dog friendly . I loved having the park to walk the dogs just across from the cottage . You are not far from St Andrews, Anstruther for great days out .
