Lying only steps from the picturesque coastline and with captivating views of the Auld Kirk, Cumberland Cottage occupies an enviable position in the scenic village of St Monans. Only twelve miles south of St Andrews this delightful village and fishing port is dotted with attractive 17th and 18th century fishermen’s cottages fostering a warm and friendly community. The village provides essential amenities with a convenience store, and a well-loved café, the Giddy Gannet. The restored 14th century parish church adds to the village’s character. Exquisite and award-winning dining is just minutes away at the East Pier Smokehouse and Craig Millar Restaurant. Nearby Anstruther boasts bustling bars, restaurants, independent boutiques, and of course its world-renowned fish bar. It also has an extensive Co-op Food. The family-run Ardross Farm Shop only a short drive from St Monans sells an array of local produce, and Bowhouse food hub hosts a monthly farmers market. Situated directly on the Fife Coastal Trail, St Monans is the gateway to the other pretty villages that lie along the coast, including Crail, Elie, and Pittenweem. Dundee to the north is a forty-minute drive and Edinburgh to the south is approx. 80 minutes by car or just over an hour by train from Leuchars.

Set amidst spectacular scenery and embraced by stunning coastline St Monans offers much for the outdoor enthusiast with pleasant walk and cycle routes along the Fife Coastal Path as well as opportunities for sailing, paddle boarding, riding and leisurely days spent on award-winning beaches. There are world-renowned golf courses to enjoy including the prestigious Old Course at St Andrews. Residents can also discover nearby courses such as those at Kingsbarns, Crail, and Lundin Links. St Monans benefits from a local bowling club along with a multi-use games area and tennis court. There are several breathtaking beaches to explore including those at Elie and Kingsbarns, both of which are just a short drive, and the area is famous for its historic tidal pools. National Trust properties include Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit and Pittenweem hosts a popular arts festival every August, attended by visitors from across the UK. State schooling is available locally and private options include those at St Leonards in St Andrews and The High School of Dundee. An efficient bus service connects St Monans to towns throughout Fife, and there are railway stations at Kirkcaldy, Markinch, and the newly opened Leven station. Edinburgh International Airport is within reach.
