“Great location”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Found Rockslea very comfortable and well-appointed. Spent a lot of time sitting around the kitchen table or outside in the yard watching the sea. This was our first visit to the area and I found it a revelation, with its small fishing harbours and open views. I was particularly impressed by the neatness and tidiness of the area. I hope to visit Rockslea again, and would recommend both the house and the area.

“Spacious, beautifully decorated and great location”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed for a week with family and this place surpassed our expectations. The décor is stunning (all seaside chic with lovely ornaments and details), every room is spacious and spotless and kitted out with everything you need. Right on the seafront so lovely views and just a stone's throw from Anstruther harbour - so great location too. Can't fault the place.

If you are looking for a home from home that also has boutique style luxury, then this is the place for you. We have been holidaying in Anstruther/Cellardyke for over 30 yesrs and this was definitely the best equipped house that we have ever stayed in. The decor is superb with the bedrooms all co-ordinated beautifully and lots of seaside nick nacks to admire. Exceptionally clean and the bed linen was of excellent quality, as were the towels. The kitchen was so well equipped that we were able to make cakes (scales and mixer in cupboards) meringues, lobster, langoustines all on the aga which is great for preparing a meal in the morning and cooking slowly in the lower oven. After being out walking and golfing all day, the meal was ready. Would recommend a visit to Penman butchers in Crail as their meat is superb quality and variety (piri piri pigeon-which was delicious) Dont forget to go to Pittenween about 6.30- 7.00 am and sea the fishermen landing their catch. You can also buy langoustines, crab and mackerel from them straigh off the boat. Anstruther golf club has a wonderful restaurant (Rockies) and bar meals are also available. Also, St Monans which has its own smokehouse where they smoke everything from fish to brazil nuts - wonderful. All the aforementioned placed are within 3/4 miles and we like to walk as there is a coastal walkway. Anyway, back to Rockslea - and I will be. The view from two of the bedroom windows is superb and looks out on to the firth of forth. Step out from the hallway and you have private space to enjoy the vista and watch the waves crash over the rocks. I was lucky enough to see two dolphin pods and what a sight! A few of the dolphins in the first pod even did tricks. I could go on forever about the location, facilities, house etc. Must mention David and Gillian - the lucky owners - who even remembered tht I like irn bru and had left 2 cans in the fridge for me. Hope this helps you in your decision, but staying at Rockslea may seem a bit pricey, but for whats on offer it is great value for money.

“wow what a great holiday home”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed for a week for a special family occasion.
The house was great and very well equipped, in fact far more than we would have expected.
The photos do not do justice to this house and we have a lovely relaxing week.
It is close to St Andrews. which is a wonderful day out.
A little further afield to Edinburgh, but made it all the more worthwhile to come back to spend a lovely evening relaxing in the house, or enjoying a drink on the outside area
We would recommend a day out at puffin island and you just need to catch the boat trip down in the harbor. I would certainly recommend .

“An amazing property, too short a stay.”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

From the moment we opened the front door the house was warm,welcoming and homely. The individually themed bedrooms were perfect with lovely attention to detail. The accommodation was spotless and had everything you could possibly need. The views from the back bedrooms were stunning. We had really nice weather and spent the evenings sitting out on the patio listening to the sounds of the sea, perfect! We are already checking out dates for a return visit.

“fantastic house and location”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We enjoyed a short break here over the school holidays. The house was amazing with great attention to detail, spotlessly clean and with everything you could need. This is a big house with loads of room for everyone. The views are stunning. The only problem was the break was too short, we will be back.

“I wanted somewhere special, this wasn't, it was very special!”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I recently stayed at this house in Anstruther for a weekend with friends. It had just been renovated to an exceptionally high standard, and we were one of the first to occupy the house.
The rear of the house directly backs on to the sea, and the views are just amazing.
The furnishings are immaculate over the three floors, and it made for a very comfortable weekend. The owners, who I have met, have paid great attention to detail, I suspect this will be a very popular rental property.
It is a short stroll to the nearby shops, some great restaurants and beautiful coastal walks, not to mention the picturesque harbour.
It certainly will not be the last time we visit Rockslea.
