'Grannie Frail's Hame' is in the beautiful, historical Fife coast village of Kingsbarns. 6 miles from St Andrews and 40 minutes from Dundee and Carnoustie it is ideally situated not just for golfers but walkers, cyclists or anyone looking to explore Scotland from a beautiful and tranquil base. We have secure outhouses for bikes and golf equipment and private parking. Wi Fi and other conveniences are standard.

The space
The house is ideally located for travel within the East Neuk of Fife. Kingsbarns is nestled between St Andrews (6 miles away) and Crail (4 miles away). It is only a 5 minute walk from the beach where walkers can join the Fife Coastal Path and a 5 minute walk to the Kingsbarns Golf Links - a worldwide Top 100 ranked course with picturesque North Sea views. There are lots of interesting places to visit - Cambo House & Estate; Kingsbarns Distillery; many picturesque villages/harbours including Crail and Anstruther; boat trips to The May Island (Isle of May - one of Scotland's National Nature Reserves); the Secret Bunker; National Trust properties and St Andrews - the home of golf! This holiday accommodation would suit golfers (secure storage area is available for golf clubs), walkers, bird watchers, cyclists and those looking to relax away from modern day pressures. You can even treat yourself at the local spa in the Fairmont Hotel!
Kingsbarns Inn (300m away) serves delicious homemade food and has a selection of fine ales and spirits. Further afield, St Andrews and Anstruther both boast world champion Fish and Chip shops, though we prefer the nearby Crail Fish Bar who's take away food is to die for, and best eaten sitting on Crail harbour wall or Kingsbarns beach.
The house itself has two bright bedrooms with 4 comfortable single beds. It has one modern bathroom with a 'power shower' and a modern kitchen. The house also benefits from a lovely living area with log stove, television and fold out dining table. From here there is access to the conservatory which has a second television and card table. Ideal for afternoon tea or a bright breakfast!
Broadband is standard and most mobile phone carriers have good coverage. (This only happened after the world class golf course next door appeared.....hmmmmm🤔)

Hello, Failte! My name is Fiona and I will be your host alongside my sister, Aileen, on behalf of our parents. My mother, Alice, was brought up in this house and met my father, Ronald, when he was a student at the University of St Andrews many years ago. We have a lifetime of happy memories associated with this cherished cottage and hope you will too ☺️
