Elizabeth Place stands in a lovely setting opposite the Dreel Halls in the popular conservation town of Anstruther in the heart of Fife’s beautiful and sought-after East Neuk. The East Neuk villages which include Pittenweem, St Monans, Crail and Anstruther itself offer an excellent range of shops, services and amenities as well as some state of the art primary and secondary schools. The Anstruther Harbour Festival and the Pittenweem Annual Arts Festival are both very popular events and from Anstruther there is easy access along the whole of the East Neuk, from Elie to Crail, while St. Andrews – the world “Home of Golf” - is less than a twenty minute drive to the north, with the ancient, historic and cosmopolitan town offering an excellent range of facilities along with the very highly regarded university. The popular county market town of Cupar is some fourteen miles to the north-west and the thriving city of Dundee with the new V & A museum due to open in autumn 2018 within a forty-five minute drive to the north. Edinburgh is about an hour and twenty minutes to the south.
Surrounding Anstruther is an area of outstanding beautiful Fife countryside comprising a wonderful mix of fertile farmland, woodland, hill, stunning coastline and river. The area is home to an array of wildlife and for the outdoor enthusiast provides for a wide range of recreational pursuits including riding, cycling, walking, sailing and golf with many highly rated courses within easy reach including the courses at Anstruther itself, Crail, Kingsbarns, St. Andrews Bay, Elie, Leven, Ladybank, Lundin Links and the numerous fine courses in and around St. Andrews where the Old Course regularly hosts the British Open – the next visit to St. Andrews is in 2021 for the event’s 150th anniversary. 9 Elizabeth Place is well placed for accessing the various pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk and in terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills are not far away along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties which include Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Fife’s beautiful and varied coastline includes several good sandy beaches such as Kingsbarns, Crail, Tentsmuir, Elie and St. Andrews with access to the popular Fife coastal path on the doorstep in Anstruther.
