More information about The Secret Cottage

Property information

Originally built as stables for Dreel castle, now no longer there, this beautiful building has been tastefully transformed into a comfortable 2 bedroomed cottage. Clever use of the original window opening allows light in whilst providing privacy from other houses and from the street outside. Recently renovated, the interior is filled with light from above which floods through the property from the roof lights and cleverly designed atrium. The unusual opaque glass doors from the bedroom can be shut to allow light but privacy or left open to create a balcony effect to the ground floor.

Inside, the cottage is light and airy, furnished in a comfortable but contemporary style with well thought-out modern conveniences. Underfloor heating combined with plenty of insulation with thick stone walls keeps the cottage cosy inside. Ventilation is controlled by the remote sensor on the Velux windows which also operate the blackout blinds. The cottage is well equipped with comfortable seating and dining area for those occasions when you wish to stay in. Alternatively, within a very short walk is a range of options to eat out.

This is an ideal location to explore all that the East Neuk of Fife, with its pretty fishing villages, has to offer. Within a short drive are many historic buildings worthy of a visit including, Balmerino Abbey, Kellie Castle and Gardens, Falkland Palace, Abbey and Gardens and Hill of Tarvit.

Anstruther is an intriguing town with traditional buildings featuring crow step gables, pan tiled roofs, cobbled streets and Wynds which take you down narrow routes of a bygone era. There is a range of interesting shops including antiques, food, health, deli and gift shops. It is also popular for local seafood specialities as well as the famous Anstruther Fish Bar on Shore Street which won the title of Scottish Fish and Chip Shop of the year for several years.

The Fife coastal path passes though Anstruther and is a fascinating historic and pleasurable walk. For the keen bird watcher a trip to the Isle of May to see the Puffin Colony is a must.

Plenty to do, see and experience from this very, very special East Neuk secret!
