The King's Highway sounds a very grand address indeed. In fact, it is a tiny, leafy lane on the edge of the tiny village of Largoward, about 7 miles from St Andrews in the East Neuk of Fife.
And it is here, tucked away behind a high hedge that you will find Easter Cottage, a welcoming and altogether delightful semi-detached cottage, in its own extensive, enclosed and very private garden (furniture, BBQ) with lovely views away to the Firth of Forth.
Newly refurbished to a very high standard, inside it is bright and neat as a new pin, superbly equipped and surprisingly extensive too, with three bedrooms, living room and separate dining room, utility and bathroom. All on one level, it provides a safe and peaceful environment for children, pets and guests of limited mobility.
Fife is a wonderful place for a holiday. Nearby Anstruther has all facilities, including Scotland's premier fish and chip shop (official!). There are golf courses galore, from the Old Course downwards, beautiful beaches, the Fife Coastal Path to walk, quaint fishing villages, and a superb infrastructure of facilities and visitor attractions, such as the local cheese factory! Nearby Kellie Castle, Scotland's Secret Bunker and Falkland Palace should not be missed.
It's accessible too, easily reached by road and rail, and in the unlikely event that you may not find enough to do locally, you are within easy distance of Edinburgh, the Highlands beyond Perth, and even Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
Bed linen, towels, electricity and £20 oil-CH are included. Up to two well-behaved pets are welcome by arrangement. Smoking is not permitted in the cottage. Wi-fi included, subject to provider.
