This stylish well-presented third floor apartment, has been refurbished but still retains period features and charm. Nestled in peaceful private position, just a stone’s throw from Kinghorn’s beautiful sandy bay and little harbour.  Situated in the picturesque historic seaside village of Kinghorn, close to the East Neuk.

Situated in the picturesque historic seaside village of Kinghorn, close to the East Neuk, you are but a stone’s throw from the beautiful sandy bay and little harbour, and with the Fife Coastal Path passing through the village, you and your four-legged friend will have a holiday to remember. Whether it’s a dip in the North Sea or a day wandering the woodland trails, there is plenty to get the tail wagging!

The ideal romantic getaway, this stylish well-presented third floor apartment, has been refurbished but still retains period features and charm. After a day soaking up the sea air, shake off the sandy paws and pad into the warm welcome of the kitchen to make a coffee, and perhaps a doggy treat too. Enjoying the magnificent sea views from the lounge, light the wood burner and cuddle up on the sofa as your contented canine basks in the flickering heat in a restful snooze, dreaming of tomorrow’s antics. Awake refreshed to enjoy a morning cuppa on the beach opposite, the perfect place to sit back and relax and look out towards Inchkeith Island as your four-legged friend scampers to his heart’s content.

Stretch those legs with miles of running at the lovely and clean Pettycur Beach (1 miles) and Silver Sands Beach (6.4 miles). Enjoy a piece of history at St Bridget’s Kirk (10 miles), a beautiful and quiet place, or scamper the trails around Townhill Country Park (14.5 miles). At Blairadam Wood (15.5 miles), your dog can be off lead and there are plenty of interesting bits for them to explore and have fun. For those who love a challenge, walk from Kinghorn Loch to The Binn (2 miles), a rewarding ‘sea to summit’ walk with one of the best views of the Firth of Forth.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The gorgeous beach is on the doorstep, accessed via steps or a ramp. Take your blanket for a relaxed beach picnic or enjoy a stroll along the shoreline before supper. Wander the quaint streets to the picturesque harbour where you can watch the fishing boats unload their catch or feast on freshly caught fish in one of the harbourside restaurants. Step onto the Fife Coastal Path for a day walking the rugged coastline, seeking out the perfect bay for a paddle or head to Kinghorn Loch for canoeing, sailing and open-water swimming.

Spend the day discovering the coastal city of St Andrews (27 miles). Explore the remains of the 12th century cathedral and climb to the top of St Rule's Tower for panoramic views from your 33m tall vantage point. Stroll among the atmospheric ruins of St Andrews Castle, sitting on the headland overlooking the North Sea and find out about its bloody history in the museum. Golf enthusiasts will be fascinated at the impressive collections in the British Golf Museum, located opposite the Old Course clubhouse, including the earliest known set of golf clubs.

Not to be missed is Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh (26.5 miles), with its blend of historical sites and cosmopolitan style. Stroll the Royal Mile, browsing the shops and maybe picking up a souvenir of your stay. Climb Castle Hill to reach the imposing Edinburgh Castle. See the splendours of the Royal Palace and gaze on the famous Stone of Destiny, displayed along with the Scottish Crown Jewels. Spend some time in the National Museum of Scotland where exhibits range from dinosaurs to space age science. Step onto one of Edinburgh's secret gems at the museum's roof terrace where you can enjoy stunning views across the city.

We really enjoyed the beach side location of the cottage. The extreme tides made for added interest. The beach is very safe for children.

We had a wonderful time at Providence House. We already miss the views and sounds of the sea. The flat has equipped everything needed. It's about 45min by train from Edinburgh and about the same time by car to St. Andrews. Great place for walks along the beach. We loved watching the dolphins play in the Firth of Forth!
