From the moment we turned up Elie house drive and approached Treescape our breath was taken away. Stunning setting and a 10 minute walk to the outstanding beach in Elie, there is certainly nothing to disappoint! Treescape's attention to detail was spot on, from the top of the range appliances, to the bedlinen and towels to the gorgeous Cowshed toiletries. Let's not forget the amazing welcome pack from the local farm shop, very spoilt! It's fair to say we felt very indulged! We were a party of 7 from 14 years up to 74. Four teenagers can be harsh critics but there was nothing to complain about. The Sky package was great, although there is far to much to do with exploring the grounds and heading to the beach to sail, kayak, fish and jump off the pier! If I could move my family and live in Treescape I would! Thank you Simon for allowing us to stay and it goes without saying that we will be back!

What a fabulous week's stay we had in the gorgeous Treescape, nestled in the beautiful grounds of Elie House. Having stayed once before with a group of friends, I couldn't wait to go back with my family - and it didn't disappoint! The house is absolutely beautiful, and so incredibly comfortable and well-equipped with every luxury and mod-con. We were a group with ages ranging from four to 79, and it was perfectly suited to everyone. There were lots of toys and great books and movies for the children, and they adored exploring the garden and fantastic grounds, riding around on their bikes and looking at the great wildlife (badgers, herons and wagtails to name a few). The grown-ups enjoyed wandering around the beautiful gardens, and felt so comfortable in the beautifully appointed and proportioned rooms. There are televisions in every bedroom - so no arguments(!), and good wifi access throughout the house. Everyone had plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather we had for almost all of the week. It's just a short walk to the gorgeous beach, the great pubs/restaurants, the well-stocked Elie Deli and lovely gift shops, and the Golf Club and Pavilion which had readily available tennis courts every time we wanted to play, and great snacks and drinks too. The lovely Ardross Farm Shop is just along the road with a fantastic selection of wines, gins, charcuterie and delicious ready meals from Cook for the lazier amongst us! We also loved the East Pier Smokehouse just along the road in the fishing village of St Monan's - the perfect place to have a chilled glass of rose overlooking the sea, with the freshest seafood in the region,while the children searched for crabs in the rock-pools at low tide. The best fish and chips in Scotland from Anstruther, and fantastic meals at the Ship Inn and the 19th Hole, topped off our amazing week. Simon was the most attentive host, and the whole process from booking, to access, to close-down, was simple and seamless. It really was the perfect place for a relaxing but active luxury beach holiday - my daughter kissed the outside of the house as we left because she loved it so much and can't wait to go back!
You could be tempted to stay inside this house all week , it is of such a good standard. However , that would mean missing out on the most peaceful (and child friendly) gardens - actually small estate is more accurate. Very easy walk into Elie for shops, beach, pubs etc. Any number of attractions in 20 minute driving time for children and adults of all ages. It is no exaggeration to sum up as a perfect holiday
Treescape is an excellent venue for relatively large adult or family groups. The spacious kitchen, dining and living areas make for a relaxing environment. The bedrooms are large and comfortable and add to the light and bright effect. Situated in extensive estate grounds, the venue offers a range of woodland walks with the Main Street and beaches of Elie a half mile or so away. The nearby Ardross Farmshop is an excellent source of quality food and wines.
Ideal location for a relaxing break in a lovely area with good restaurants and places of interest nearby.
Beautiful house in a wonderful setting. Feels like a home away from home. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, great media set up, lovely country views, short walk to Elie beach. Very relaxing family holiday and we hope to visit again soon
We had a wonderful four days through at your marvellous house. We so enjoyed it in every way.
We loved being just that wee bit out of the mad throng of Elie yet so easy to pop down on our bikes to be part of it.
Everything about your house was perfect. We settled in instantly and found it so easy to live in. Kirsty had left it gleaming and your wonderful big windows made it so light and airy that it didn't matter when it rained and we were house bound.
The wee grandchildren loved their bunk beds and being able to go round all the slabs on their scooters. They were very safe there which is so relaxing and all the neighbours were ultra quiet which was a real bonus.
I would thoroughly recommend your house and hope we can return. We loved the Ship Inn, cycling on the paths round the estate, swimming at St. Andrews, Craigtoun Park at St. Andrews, the fish shop at St. Monans and Ardross Farm Shop and of course being on the beach.
Thank you for letting us squeeze in between lets and hopefully we left everything okay. I am sure we will want to repeat our visit.
All the best - Val
