Holiday Rental House
This is possibly one of the finest houses in the whole East Neuk. The Manse has been completely refurbished to an extremely high standard and now offers wonderful living accommodation for 10/11 people. The property sits directly on the seafront and as a consequence all rooms have spectacular views over the Firth of Forth. Five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a modern kitchen and a 400 sq.ft open-plan ground floor living area that offers direct access to the seafront garden area. The property is within 100 yards of the harbour (and the famous fish and chip shop!) and boasts all amenities that you could hope to find. Perfect for large groups or two families sharing. The attic area has The Velux Cabrio balcony system which is just one of the many luxury features within this spectacular property...This is possibly one of the finest houses in the whole East Neuk.

6 of us stayed here over Christmas for a family get together! It’s a great location with fabulous views out to sea! The kitchen is great - lots of room, well equipped with an enormous table to gather round, and also a sofa in front of the wood burner. All of the bedrooms are a good size. The stair up to the attic room takes a bit of negotiating, but our daughter who used that room wasn’t phased by it. The outdoor space was great for photo opportunities with an amazing view, when the weather allowed, and would be great to use in the summer time! The property is located just a short walk from cafes, restaurants and shops. And an absolute must is a takeaway from the local chip shop!! We all really enjoyed our stay here and I would definitely return!

The location of the house was perfect. The views from every window were stunning. The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed for a relaxing break. We could not have wished for a better house to stay in. What a treat to wake up to sea views with gorgeous sunrise - being November the sun rose around 8am so not exactly early! Food from the chippy and Chinese takeaway was excellent. Took our Ooni pizza oven and had delicious pizza in the garden with the fire pit roaring. It was a brilliant weekend. Anstruther is so pretty and the coastal walks are easy to walk along with beautiful views.

Situated right on the sea front The Manse for us was the perfect place. All 5 bedrooms had sea views, the bathrooms well appointed. A lovely lounge on the first was perfect for watching the tide come and go, and one day dolphins played. Ground floor kitchen, dining and lounge area was big enough to enjoy without getting in each others way. There is every appliance there needed to make life easy. Good pubs and restaurants within an easy walk and the coast path was terrific for the more energetic of us. All in all our best holiday for years.

Cracking house, well equipped with fantastic views from the back garden and upstairs bedrooms. Particularly liked the original artwork sprinkled around…nice touch. Great base to explore the East Neuk with great pubs and small shops in Anstruther. We even saw the dolphins from the back garden…thank you for arranging. Hope to return soon! Thank you. A

We had a super family holiday. Spacious and comfortable with everything we needed for a group of nine. Safe enclosed and private garden for grandchildren playing. Great views from all rooms. Walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants and supermarket. A wonderful week after lockdown.

This is a great house in an excellent location right on the waterfront. Views from all rooms are stunning. Plenty of space for everyone, comfortable beds and very good showers. Outside area is bigger than photographs make it appear but needs some attention to the large number of weeds currently growing. There were a few small issues in the house which were communicated with the agent during our stay. I think some of the kitchen and dining items need replaced as becoming worn and chipped. The property would also benefit from a proper gas bbq. With a little extra tlc this could be an amazing rental.

We had a fantastic long weekend staying here. The house is lovely and comfortable, even in the wild weather we had, with great central heating and the multi-fuel stove. The kitchen table is the perfect size for a big jigsaw, with plenty of space for folk to eat at the same time. The house is a short walk from the famous Anstruther fish bar, and there’s a baker’s shop up the hill where the rolls are fresh and the cakes delicious. Can’t fault it - the view is spectacular out to sea, and we loved watching the blustery weather coming in from the comfort and warmth of the living room. The beds were comfortable with lovely crisp sheets and warm duvets. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

Can’t fault The Manse if you require a large but Modern home for a family gathering, the Manse has been returbed to a very high standard. The Kitchen/Dining area is excellent with a large dining table that accommodated nine of us with plenty of space for more people, also on this floor is settees and log burning stove which we used most nights. All the bedrooms were extremely comfortable.The Manse is so close to all the Restaurants and Bars .you can walk to the famous Fish & Chip outlet in less than five minutes. Given the time of year we did not make use of the outside patio area which must be brilliant in the Summer as it looks directly over the Firth of Forth, we did manage to observe Dolphins or Porpoise swimming past the Harbour from the Patio. Jill, the Managing Agent was excellent We will be back

I stayed at the Manse with a group of girlfriends. It was an amazing spacious property. Everything you could possibly think of is in the property. A fully equipped kitchen (and more), huge dining table to seat 12, wine fridge, washing machine, toiletries in every bathroom. Now TV. Beautiful seated area at the back of the property with amazing views over the beach and harbour. Could not fault this property at all. If I could give 6 stars I would.

The Manse is an ideal holiday home with the private patio being a particular favourite. Whilst the size of the house has an obvious appeal to families and large groups, it is also worth considering for fewer people, friends or family members looking to relax with the added luxury of a bedroom and bathroom or shower room each. There were four of us and we absolutely intend to return to this wonderful setting. Inside the house is tastefully decorated and every room has a sea view. Anstruther is certainly worth a visit.
