Helena Cottage was acessed down a short gravel pathway and is close to both the golf course, beach and a local pub. It’s location means it’s very quiet as very few people walk past it and it is protected from the most of the strong winds.
The property was very well maintained throughout; with two bedrooms (one double and one twin leading off it), a lovely shower/bathroom and a well fitted out kitchen / dining / living room. There is also a washing machine in the outside utility room. There is even an option to fold out the sofa in the living room into an extra bed in case unexpected visitors turn up. The free wi-allowed the TV to host a Fire TV Stick; which gave us access to Amazon Prime/Netflix/iplayer, etc.
Edinburgh was just over an hour away and St Andrews about 35 mins, so it’s easily accessable to both. For those lazy days, a long sandy beach is only a quick walk away.
All in all, a lovely property in a great location and a wonderful holiday.
Myself, my Mum and my 4 year old son have just got home from staying in Helena Cottage. I burst into tears when I got in the car because I didn't want to leave Elie, the beautiful peaceful beach and our perfect holiday cottage.
We absolutely loved it and will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful time at Helena cottage so very peaceful and a truly relaxing break. The cottage is in a perfect location and is very homely, nicely decorated and well equipped. There's a fantastic shower too. Elie is lovely - we had a great time at the beach and on coastal walks! Highly recommend.
This was our first time at Helena Cottage, although my husband and young son have been to Elie before, and we were very pleased with the cottage! It is fresh, comfortable, well equipped and thoughtfully finished. We had great weather so the wee garden was great for sitting out (when we weren't on the beach). The black out blinds in the bedrooms were a great touch (especially with a toddler!). The I-pod dock and Amazon Prime were used too. The cottage is not attached to any other buildings so it was super quiet at night. We hope to return again soon!
