Seaside self-catering accommodation

Barra Cottage, entrance hall

Barra Cottage is ideal self-catering holiday accommodation for the family. Very close to the beautiful sandy beach of Elie and Earlsferry, the house has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay by the sea (see the panel opposite).

The layout of the house is unconventional, but not uncommon in the East Neuk villages of Fife. On stepping through the front door, you find yourself in a welcoming entrance hall. To the left and right of you are the downstairs bedrooms and, a little further on, a utility room and the downstairs bathroom. Ahead of you are the stairs.

On the first floor, you find a spacious sitting room, furnished for comfort in the traditional style. Wood-panelled walls adds to the period feel. Towards the rear of the house is the well-equipped kitchen, the kitchen dining area, and access via French windows to the patio garden. Also to the rear is another bathroom.

Continuing to the second floor, you come to the cosy upstairs double room, with travel cot facilities if required.

Behind the house, the charming patio garden is a perfect place to relax and perhaps even dine al fresco, while listening to the gentle splash of water from the ornamental pond and waterfall.
