“A place to relax and enjoy time with friends or family”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The cottage is well placed. A 10 minute walk to a lovely sandy beach and walks along the coast. If you are a golfer Kingsbarns golf course is ranked about eighth in the U.K.. There is plenty of space in the cottage and it has all the equipment you would need for a self catering holiday. It is also set in a very peaceful position. At the present time the public house in the village is closed but is due to open again in the very near future. A local told me that the new owner is a very good cook - this is should make the cottage even more appealing.

“Excellent house. Great location.”
Reviewed 23 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I have now stayed in the Yards twice. On both occasions we had our elderly mother, two teenagers and two adults. The house is excellent. It has everything you need. The downstairs double was great for my mum as she had her own toilet next door. My sister and I loved the main bedroom - great size and loads of storage space - and the teenagers enjoyed the twin room to themselves. A new power shower has been installed in the family bathroom which is excellent. The back garden is a good size and a real suntrap.
Kingsbarns is a delightful wee village. The beach is within walking distance of the cottage and is excellent. St Andrew's, Crail., Pittenweem, St Monans and Anstruther are all worth a visit. Park the car and walk around. The East Neuk of Fife is beautiful with fabulous beaches and places of interest. The new Museum of St Andrews University behind North Street is great and free!
The Golf Hotel in Crail does a very good High Tea. If you go ask for the pancakes and cakes instead of dessert. The pancakes are made to order and delicious. The Wee Chippy in Anstruther is just as good as the "Award Winning" chippy and the Bakehouse tearoom beside it is more comfortable and better value as they do a High Tea - not just fish teas.
