Condo/Apartment
Located in Kinghorn on the Fife coast, The Nethergate offers accommodation for up to 5 adults (and with cot, etc., for babies). Newly renovated as a purpose-built holiday let, the B-listed building (circa 1750) has lots of quirky features, such as deeply inset windows and thick stone walls. Situated less than a minute from a beautiful, quiet sandy beach with stunning views south to Edinburgh, it's ideal for trips into Edinburgh, as a base for a golfing holiday, or simply as a place to relax and unwind. Despite its age, we've worked hard to make the house cosy and warm, with full central heating and modern insulation, so you won't be shivering. The house is set over two levels, and laid out in an L-shape.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Wonderful The Nethergate
Our 1st holiday with our wee rescue, Reggie. We all loved the house and settled in right away. It is super dog friendly. The house is cosy and comfortable and every detail has been thought about. The kitchen has everything you need and the bed is super comfy. We stayed in one night and made good use of some of the board games available. Minutes to the beach and train station. We walked into Burntisland via Pennycur Bay and got the train back. Have recommended to lots of my friends and can't wait to stay again.

Second Stay at the Nethergate.
Had a great time at the Nethergate with our 4 hooligans in May 2023 and didn't hesitate to repeat the experience for Christmas. This unique house is well equipped, super dog friendly and home from home. The owners are very welcoming and helpful and leave plenty of useful advice on their Facebook page and in the property. Up the hill is a super dog friendly pub ‘The Auld Hoose’, down the hill is a lovely clean and quiet beach. (also dog friendly) Took the train to Edinburgh on both occasions, this time with the dogs. Ideally located for great walks and other attractions.

Fantastic family dog friendly beach house
Surpassed our expectations!! Beautiful beach flat just around the corner from the beach. Flat was beautifully presented, amazing comfortable beds and possibly the best shower I’ve ever used. Our 8 yr old was already planning our next visit before the vacation ended 😆. Great family house and pet friendly, our dog even made some friends with local doggies. Will definitely be back, 5 stars ⭐️

Comfortable dog friendly house in a good location
Nethergate is a comfortable house with all the equipment you need for a week away with your fur family. Just 2 minutes from the beach it gave us a great base for morning walks with our 7 dogs and easy access to beautiful areas to explore such as Falkland, the Lomond hills, Tentsmuir beach, St Andrews and Elie. Also an easy trip into Edinburgh. Tahra was welcoming and super helpful in the run up to our trip too, helping us arrange a fabulous dog sitter for our day out to the Scone game fair

Family Holiday
The other half, the dog and I visited the Nethergate mid June, and had a fantastic time. Even before arriving at the Nethergate, communication between myself and the owners are fab and nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived, the cottage was just as the photos and more. The cottage has everything you need, and even takes your dog’s needs consideration. From beds, spare balls, bowls and healthy dog treats - lovely touch! From a location perspective, the beach is literally a few minutes walk and is a perfect base to explore Fife. We had such a great time, and will be back.

Relaxing break with friends
Perfectly located beside the train station and the beach. Garden is gorgeous. And the house is decorated beautifully throughout. Loved some of the touches like the old framed bathing photos from Kinghorn beach - a lovely nod to the heritage of the building and the area. We managed a beautiful walk along the beach from Kinghorn to Burntisland, had a relaxing coffee, a wee browse round the shops, bought a lovely bottle of wine and then jumped the train back - perfect! Also visited the nearby Glassmount estate for a garden tour during our stay. Well worth a visit. Tahra was very contactable and helpful both before and during our stay. An all round perfect weekend break. Highly recommend!

Wonderful house at Kinghorn Harbour Beach
A second lovely stay for us at The Nethergate. Such a comfortable house just off the beach. We were provided with everything we needed and Tahra was kind enough to leave some treats for us and the dogs! We'll definitely be looking to come back again in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Kinghorn is a small village in the heart of Fife. Perfect as a base for exploring the rest of Fife or the Central Belt. Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and St Andrews are all easily accessible. On your doorstep you have woodland walks, beaches as well as the Fife Coastal Path to explore. The large town of Kirkcaldy is just 10 minutes away by car for larger shops but Kinghorn itself has several grocers, a butcher's shop, chemist, baker's shop as well as cafes and pubs (all dog friendly) There is a restaurant a fish and chip shop and a Chinese takeaway. Kinghorn Loch, which is a pleasant walk through the village, is also home to a dog-friendly cafe and farm shop.
Getting around
A car is the easiest way to explore Fife. However the train station is a very short walk away so very handy as it is on the east coast main line - so around an hour to Edinburgh. There is also a very good bus service.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
