The White House Studio, Anstruther
Property Type Apartment
Change over Flexible
Short Breaks Available
A sea wall is all that lies between the front door and a small sandy and very private little beach!! This cosy self-contained ground floor apartment is the annexe of a seventeenth century house in one of the most enviable positions in Anstruther looking over the harbour towards the May Isle. Situated on Fife's famous coastal path this is the perfect base for walks to Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie and Crail.
St Andrews is just a short 20 minute drive, or within 45 minutes Dundee and Edinburgh. The White House Studio is surrounded by the Golden Fringe of Fife, beautiful countryside, historic fishing villages and wonderful architecture. Of course, not to mention many of the most famous golf courses in the world!
The East Neuk of Fife is located on the coastline on the East of Scotland and is one of the most beautiful places to visit with its quaint little fishing villages (a bit like Cornwall without the traffic!). There is something for everyone in this little hidden paradise.
The apartment is all on one floor (but there is one step from front door to the hall so not suitable for wheelchair users)
Wireless Internet available and a small to medium well behaved dog is welcome (supplement applies)
Private entrance to large hallway with space for beach gear, wellies etc.
Open Plan Living Area - a welcoming and homely room with comfy seating and sofabed for occasional guests, tv/dvd, dining table and chairs

Bedroom - Double bed
Shower Room - Shower, wc, wh basin, heated towel rail, shaver point
Outside - there is a lovely little beach (tide dependent) just outside the front door
Parking - there is a fairly large car park just paces from the apartment
Daily fuel supplement applies 1 November to 1 May
£25 per person, per week supplement for extra guests using sofa bed
Small to medium dog permitted, supplement applies - Please be aware that although the owners of The White House do allow pets they would be grateful if pet owners cleaned their dogs paws before entering the house and please be so kind as to vacuum excessive amounts of dog hairs before departure.

Very relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the world. took number 95 bus to St Monans and walked back. Also took bus to Crail and enjoyed wonderful views along the coastal footpath.

Louise & Rob Holden
Wonderful week, wonderful weather, wonderful accommodation. Thank you for a great place to stay.
Helen & David Philpott
Lovely week despite the grey skies - managed to cycle or walk every day and rewarded by blue skies today. Ate at the Anstruther Fish Bar, The Boathouse and the Waterfront - all good. Also recommend Nardinis in St Andrews for Italian ise cream and cakes. Kellie Castle gardens are beautiful. The Studio is in a perfect spot - everything is within walking distance - didnt use the car at all since we arrived, which is what we had hoped for! Don't forget to try the different loaves at Barnetts Bakery too.

Third week this year for us culminating in a fabulous voyage to the Isle of May. Fantastic music at The Boathouse Sunday evening. Thank you again
Alan & Anne
Enjoyed our second break at the White House Studio. Lovely beach walks and fish and chips on the harbour wall - just perfect!
Another brilliant week and plenty more of the above. Not as many fossils spotted this week but so many sunny bracing walks. Fantastic cottage - we love it. Thanks
Graham & Pippa
A lovely cosy apartment. Very well equipped and an ideal base for walking some of the coastal path.
Fantastic week in the lovely situation. So enjoyed the beach walks with our dog, observing fossils - real trip down memory lane for this Carboniferous Palaeontologist. Plenty of mooching about the bookshops in St Andrews too. We recommend the Boathouse on Sunday afternoon for some tunes and a pint of pale ale. Beautiful weather all week, the sun shoe and we felt so welcome here, would really love to come back to the cottage again. Thank you
Mari & John Brown
We have had a great week. The cottage is very warm and comfortable. Weather has been sunny and dry but very cold! We have visited Edinburgh, Perth and St Andrews. We enjoyed walking the coastal path to Pittenweem. The cottage has been a great base and we hope to return. Loved being on this side if the Dreel burn looking on to the main drag and being right next to the sea and those waves - brilliant!
We greatly enjoyed our stay - a wonderful cottage and location! R Thomas, April 2015

Had a fantastic time, great place to stay and we would love to come back. Accommodation is top notch and view to die for!. Brewster, June '13
Enjoyed a glorious bank holiday weekend here in Anstruther. The coastal path walks were stunning, enjoyed fish & chips from Pittenweem fish bar & lovely Italian food at Little Italy in St Andrews - book as it gets very busy. Cottage was a perfect albeit a wee bit cold at night. Try Crail pottery for nice gifts for yourself or as souvenirs. Kate, May 2013
Another great stay at the cottage. Lucky with the weather again, enjoyed every walk on the beach. Thanks again! Hope to be back next year most relaxing week of the year!! Yanglee, April '13
Our 6th visit to the white house and yet again we leave tired but exhilarated after walking the coastal path from the brilliant base. The flat remains as ever a haven of warmth and cosiness to return to each day. The weather was bracing upon arrival and remained dry and bright throughout. Sadly our favourite eaterie The Dreel closed recently but gave The Bank a try! The walk to Elie is enhanced with a visit to The Ship where we had a meal, bottle of wine and walked back! We will return as we are inevitably drawn back to the East Neuk and the White House. Thanks. Thompson, March '13
We had a very special weekend. Loved the house, the views and the weather. Thank you both. Sweeney Feb '13
