Fantastic 3 night break. Jenni and Mark are brilliant hosts. The rooms are comfy, well appointed and spacious. Their house is lovely and there is a nice relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts are lovely too. All in all I would 100% recommend this guesthouse visiting the East Neuk of Fife. Near to St Andrews,Elie, Pittenweem, Perth and Dundee.

Stunning, characterful guest house with lovely characterful hosts - Mark and Jeni. Had a wonderful 3 days here and hope to return. Room nice and big and comfortable with views out to sea. Breakfast was delicious and filling (and even included "dessert"). Sitting room was a lovely place to relax in with loads of comfy chairs and well stocked honesty bar as well as loads of interesting decor and furnishings.

just spent 3 wonderful days with Mark and Jenni at their wonderful guest house. We were treated as part of the family and it was such a friendly place and a great breakfast. Also they have an honesty policy with their wonderful gantry of Malt Whiskies and Gins. Cannot wait to return and meet up again in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife.

We stayed for 4 nights in this fabulous home. Jenni and Mark are great hosts, couldn't do enough for their guests. We had a room at the top of the house with a view out to sea. Very comfortable with luxury touches and serviced every day. Breakfast was substantial and freshly cooked to order. There is an honesty bar with a great selection of drinks. An easy walk in to Anstruther harbour where there are many eateries. I hope we can visit again next year!

The owners of the guest house are so friendly and welcoming from the moment you arrive. Mark and his wife Jeni were amazing they couldn't do enough for us regardless of what it was. The breakfast was brilliant and the room was beautiful overlooking the fields and in the distance you could see the sea and Edinburgh on a clear day. We would look to stay again it. The guest house was very clean and the bar is very impressive on the selection of drinks you can have. Hope to see you both soon again.
