As soon as you walk in to this cottage you get the immediate impression that it has been treasured and well looked after, with a fresh pristine and bright feel. Although it is small, each room is actually of a reasonable proportion, for example plenty of space for a King size bed, wardrobe and bedside cabinets in the main bedroom and for two singles and wardrobe in the other bedroom; more than enough kitchen storage and work surface areas, including a dishwasher (which usually is sacrificed in smaller kitchens); couch easily big enough for 4 in sitting area, and still enough space for a dining table. Therefore small yes but no compromises. The washing machine is in the outside shed, which is fine. A good size, functional and contemporary bathroom too. The outside patio space is bliss, a sunny sheltered spot, and rarely for Elie is not overlooked and quite private. The kids also thoroughly enjoyed having their own TV with netflix in their bedroom. Note the second bedroom is through the main bedroom in this L shaped cottage, which is great if you have kids as you feel close to them. We have stayed in Elie many times and we also really appreciated the location - not only is the beach a 3 minute walk away but it is in our view the nicest part of the beach! Also 3 mins from the Pavilion and 1 minute from the pub! The owner was also on hand to answer one or two queries we had during our stay, which was reassuring, like when we accidentally flicked the switch to turn the boiler off. If you are thinking about it, we have found that it is difficult to find well cared for accommodation in Elie, and would certainly recommend this for your stay.
