Recommendations!

 

I have listed the businesses I work with and highly recommend to any of our customers, from holiday homes & bespoke Wedding/Party Venues to Fruit wines & Distilleries. Fife really does have everything you need!

A family run business established in Elie over 35 years ago,  Sally, Dave and daughter Anna are dedicated to providing you with the best choice of holiday accommodation as well as a very individual service. They offer a wide range of self catering accommodation in the picturesque Royal burgh of Elie and Earlsferry. This coastal village, centred around a sheltered sandy bay has two golf courses and numerous other attractions making it an ideal location for a Scottish seaside holiday.

The Rings is set in 90 acres of peaceful Fife farmland near Cupar. It has stunning views and rural walks across the Howe of Fife to the Lomond Hills.  

The cottages are flexible giving you the freedom to book as many or as few rooms as you would like to suit your needs. They want to enable all members of your family or group to have a holiday together

The cottages can accommodate families/groups of up to 16 people. The wall between the two main living areas can move to make one open plan space.

The house can be sub-divided to allow smaller groups to book what they need. All the rooms are on one level with corridors and doors wheel chair accessible. We offer ceiling track hoists in three of the ensuite bedrooms leading to wet rooms with baths. The decor takes account of those with sensory impairments and the sound proofed walls ensure a peaceful stay. 

They offer the freedom of self-catering accommodation in a central location for your dream holiday in Fife.

The Cowshed - Crail

The Cow Shed has been a part of the Logan family for over 70 years. Originally used to house the calves for a dairy, it was an important part of a working dairy farm. The dairy closed its doors in the 1980’s but they have given The Cow Shed a new lease of life and were excited to open its doors as a venue in January 2016. 

The Cow Shed is located on the outskirts of Crail in the East Neuk of Fife, a beautiful corner of Scotland with stunning beaches, traditional fishing villages and pretty harbours...oh, and not forgetting a huge selection of golf courses too! The Cow Shed is full of original features, character and enjoys sea views across the Firth of Forth to the Bass Rock and East Lothian - the perfect backdrop to their “blank canvas” venue, giving you have the freedom to add your own personality.

The Honeypot Guest House & Cafe - Crail

Graham & Edna's cafe and licensed bed and breakfast are located in the centre of historic Crail, a few minutes walk from the harbour. Their bed and breakfast accommodation is cosy and provides a perfect base by the sea to explore the beautiful fishing villages in the East Neuk.

Their wee cafe wakes up the day with breakfast, followed up by home baking, speciality coffees and great beers or wine. They now specialise in Scottish brews but still source the lovely Belgian fruit beers that everyone enjoyed last summer. Drop in for a breakfast, a light lunch or drink, sit in the garden or watch Crail go by from the coffee shop.

Crail Food Festival’s programme promises a full weekend of activities designed to showcase the very best in outstanding local produce.

Still Delicious - Crail

Still Delicious is part of East Neuk potato farm RF Logan & Co at Crail (see The Cow Shed above!), and it sells "wonky" potatoes that would otherwise be dumped because they are too big, too small or the skin isn't perfect. As they point out, the potatoes may have a few lumps & bumps and they may be unwanted by the supermarket, but on the inside they are Still Delicious! The potatoes can be bought from a stall at Sypsies, and they are also on sale in local shops.

Coffee & Kilts - Cupar

Just celebrating their first birthday, Shaun at Coffee & Kilts has a fabulous wee coffee shopped tucked away in Lady Wynd. A warm welcome awaits you and your dogs at Coffee and Kilts, they have a really comfy area you can sit along with your pooch and there is always bowls with dog treats and water, so both you and your dog can enjoy a bite to eat.   We love the cheese scones but all Shauns baking is super, the coffee is the best in Cupar and you always get friendly service. We highly recommend a visit.

Caroline Trotter - Photography

We loved working with Caroline on the photography for our website, she is passionate about producing wonderful and simply lit images that can show your food off to justify the love, care and attention that has gone into creating your dishes. Caroline has a dedicated foodie site so check it out - her latest pictures taken on her trip to India are stunning.

Caroline is a member of the Master Photographers Association and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. She has a very relaxed and informal style and we just love her work (not to gush too much!).

Quality, locally sourced meat is the priority of this successful high street butcher. Beef and lamb comes from Fife farms and free range chickens from Jamesfield. In season they sell game from local estates.

Eden Mill Brewery - Beer - Guardbridge

Their head brewer and his team wanted to create cask beers that would complement the flavours of the barrels and use the best local barley and ingredients sourced from the bountiful Kingdom of Fife. From this pure and simple ambition, Eden Brewery began. While their experience, knowledge, range and number of awards have grown over the years, their production runs haven’t. They have remained true to their founding principle of lovingly creating and crafting small-batch beer to an appreciative, select audience.

Since 1987 the Cairn o' Mohr Winery has been brewing up juicy-fruity, berry loaded, blossom scented, leafy layered, award winning country wines, using the berries for which this area is famous, wild flowers, roots and leaves.
