Anchor Cottage is a cosy 2 bedroom house, sleeping up to 5 adults, which sits in a pretty sun-trapped courtyard in the lovely conservation town of Anstruther, only 2 minutes from the harbour. The property has its own private parking space right outside the front door and is perfect for that romantic weekend or for memorable family getaways, only feet from the harbour with its restaurants, bars and beaches. The ground floor consists of a large twin bedroom with small area open to the main bedroom with a comfy single chair bed if required. Adjacent to this is a family bathroom with full size bath and shower. The view from this bedroom looks on to a lovely private courtyard.

Anstruther is a good start for touring in Fife .The shops are very friendly and helpful as to where you can visit. Our accommodation was excellent close to the front and private parking is a bonus.Have no doubts that we will visit again.

A few days break in this lovely cottage is a great way to beat the mid-winter blues. Well equipped, warm, cosy, clean and comfortable, ideal to come home to after a day exploring the coastal walks and villages of the East Neuk. Bird watching, seal sightings, the famous Anstruther fish and chips, all this and the historic town of St Andrews nearby too. We had a wonderful time and the amenities and convenience of Anchor Cottage made it an ideal base. Elise, Rita and Inga.

We stayed in Anchor Cottage at the beginning of October. The townhouse was beautifully decorated, very clean and well equipped. The ‘welcome pack’ was an unexpected bonus! It was ideally situated just a short stroll from the harbour and a number of cafes, restaurants and takeaways. The property is over 3 floors with bedroom and bathroom on ground floor, kitchen and livingroom on first floor and master bedroom and ensuite on top floor. The accommodation suited us (couple with 6 month baby) perfectly. Having it’s own parking space, is also a real bonus in Anstruther. We would highly recommend this property.

This town house is gorgeous, located in a small courtyard just metres from the beach and harbour - it even has your own allocated parking space which is very handy in Anstruther. The house was really clean and relaxing for our stay and Ann, the owner, was very welcoming. My children took the twin room and my daughter, Sian, just loved the walk in wardrobe and mirrors. My husband and I had the double which had the best sea views. Real bonus having a dining table that could be used when needed and put away when not - this gave us a lot of space in the living room. (I have stayed in holiday lets before when the dining table took up so much room - well done, Ann). Weather was changeable but we sat in the courtyard having a glass of wine on a few evenings at the bistro table stored in the downstairs cupboard. Very relaxing. Everyone was happy, my children had wifi and smart TVs, my husband went off to play golf and I chilled. Perfect break. We have already booked again!
