One of our 3 ‘Stylish Fife Holiday Lets’ - Woodside is a cosy ground floor flat in the picturesque Fife fishing village of West Wemyss. With a private entrance & lockbox, your own garden, beach walks & fresh air this is a perfect getaway!

The space
Woodside is a ‘home from home’ base for you with stripped floor boards and wool rugs, this ground floor flat is both stylish and comfy. It feels more like a cottage than a flat!

The living room has a click clack sofa for an extra guest (it converts into a bed - mattress, bedding & towels are provided). There’s a comfy sofa and armchair, a little table for suppers, it's fully stocked with lots of books, jigsaws and board games. The fireplace is not now used for real fires but there are a collection of pillar candles sitting in the fireplace so you can still experience that cosy romantic glow!
It's an old fashioned seaside 'get away from it all flat'. Do note it’s in an old building so there are squeaky floorboards & sash & case windows...all part of the charm!

It’s in a small conservation village (just 2 streets) which is off the beaten track. You’ll really feel as if you have stepped back in time! Woodside is tucked away on a small residential street called Church Street which sits at the very top of the West Wemyss. Please note, for the purposes of accuracy that Woodside doesn’t have any sea views. However, the sea itself is just a 2 minute walk away down through the village. So you are never far away!

In the living area there’s a small TV with all the usual freeview channels. There's a digital radio with a CD player & large collection of CDs you can play. There’s a very good selection of books, games & jigsaws.

There’s also unlimited Wi-fi for your use. Please note that this is a small village which doesn’t have Fibre yet! It is usually enough for basic working & streaming but nothing like as quick as quick as city speeds - you can expect 10MB - 12MB as an average. Though internet in the whole village can be intermittent, so it may drop in and out during your stay. Not usually an issue if you are on holiday! But not really suitable for working.

The flat has a fresh and bright double bedroom with plantation shutters for privacy and wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table for storage.

It has a sunny and bright freestanding solid oak kitchen with views out to the fully enclosed garden. It is well stocked with kitchen equipment and has a new washing machine, fridge (with small freezer compartment), oven & microwave. There’s a breakfast bar area with bar stools, which is a lovely spot to have breakfast.

There is a sunny & bright shower room with large fully enclosed shower cubicle. Shampoo and soap are provided along with towels.

The garden has a paved area for sitting out and enjoying the birdsong (there are squirrels in the surrounding trees to watch) and an area of lawn for a picnic rug!

Where you’ll be

West Wemyss, Scotland, United Kingdom

Woodside is tucked away on a small residential street called Church Street at the very top of West Wemyss. The sea itself is just a 2 minute walk away down through the village. Please note Woodside doesn’t have any sea views. It does however have garden views from the kitchen.
The village and surrounding area is a haven for wildlife, including a resident seal colony. Gannets and arctic terns from the Bass Rock can be viewed feeding around West Wemyss in the summer months and dolphins are also frequent visitors. The beautiful Fife Coastal Path runs through West Wemyss, keen walkers can take on the continuous 117 miles across the sandy shores and coastal pathways or can just walk smaller sections of it! Details of the Fife Costal Walk can be found in a guest folder in the flat along with lots of other walking suggestions.
There are of course a huge number of local golf courses in the area in addition to the multitude of courses at St Andrews, the home of golf.
The nearby harbour of Dysart is within walking distance and was used in the filming of Outlander. There is a Harbour Masters house in Dysart where you'll find soup and a sandwich, lots of information about Outlander and also the Coastal Walk.
West Wemyss has a community run pub which is open 3 nights a week. Do come in. We're all very friendly and it's a good way to find out about life in the village. Occasionally there's live music and often there's a domino competition!
There's also a small cafe in West Wemyss serving coffee and cake and hot food which is open Friday - Sunday . You are guaranteed a warm welcome.
You'll also find a small heritage centre in the village and Tam who works there will be overjoyed to tell you about the rich history of the local area...not to mention the famous Wemyss caves.

I love welcoming guests to this lovely corner of Scotland. In my past I travelled all over the world and even lived in Russia for 11 years. These days I’m very much settled in Scotland & when I’m not cleaning & ironing for my 3 holiday lets I love hill walking - any time I get the chance! Being set on the Fife coastal path I love my daily beach walks, collecting beach pottery & seal watching. I love creating beautiful, comfortable & welcoming spaces for visitors & I want all my guests to have a very special holiday experience in Fife, Scotland.
