Sunny, peaceful flat with views to the sea and Edinburgh. In a conservation building in the heart of Aberdour village - 5 mins walk to award-winning beach and 2 mins to station - 30 mins to centre Edinburgh; 45 mins to Edinburgh airport by bus/train. Superfast broadband (WiFi). Free parking close by.

The space
The flat is very peaceful and sunny with a pleasant outlook over mature gardens and out to sea, and the Edinburgh skyline.

It is on the top floor of an old building from the 18th c. and is easily accessed from the main door on the High Street. NB there is a flight of stone stairs leading to the flat so this may not be suitable for people with mobility problems.

The bedroom is small but cozy and has a Velux window, chest of drawers and walk-in wardrobe/cupboard, with storage for luggage, clothes etc.

There is a small hallway, leading to an open plan sitting room and kitchen. The kitchen has a washing machine and fridge freezer and an electric hob cooker and oven, microwave oven, as well as a range of self-catering equipment. NB there is no dishwasher.

The sitting room has a writing desk overlooking the gardens, towards the sea. There is a small two seater sofa and a leather club chair, bookcase with various board games and local information, coffee table and a small (24 inches) Samsung Smart HD TV (Amazon Prime etc) and a DVD player. I keep my own collection of DVDs in the flat which guests are welcome to borrow.

(I also keep a spare set of golf clubs for guests to use- Aberdour golf club is a high quality 18 hole parkland course and the first tee is five minutes walk from the flat.)

Hot water is provided by a traditional boiler in a cupboard off the sitting room, though there is an electric shower (instant). The bathroom has a small bath, with an over bath shower. NB the bathroom suite is a bit dated aesthetically (see photos).

There is quite a large garden, most of which is shared, including a drying green (clothes line and pegs). There is ample space to leave bikes securely either in the garden or in the passage way.

Parking - there is a large, overnight public car park at the station which is about 100 metres from the flat. You can also often find spaces on the street immediately outside the flat.

Guest access
Access to bedding, kitchen equipment and utensils, bathroom towels, soap and shower gel.
Private garden access with space for bikes. Spare set of golf clubs.
Free, unlimited superfast WiFi broadband - 50mbps

Location

Aberdour, Fife, United Kingdom

I lived in Aberdour full time, when I commuted into Edinburgh. I now visit it for breaks. It is a beautiful and historic village, with a special atmosphere. What I love most are the many walks, along the coast and up in the surrounding hills and woods. There are two outstanding beaches and an old mediaeval harbour, as well as a (mostly) ruined Renaissance castle in the centre of the village (used as a TV and film location, including Outlander!)

There are excellent local amenities, including a village post office and delicatessen in the same building, a pharmacy immediately opposite, several small shops and a bakery and coffee shop/delicatessen. There are four pubs/hotel bars, which also serve food and there is an excellent fish restaurant close to the harbour (‘A Room With a View’).

There are tennis courts and a well-maintained 18 hole parkland golf course about 5 minutes walk from the flat.

As well as the beaches, there is a large park with a very high quality play park for children, about 100 metres away.

It is very convenient to use as a base for exploring Fife, Edinburgh or further afield, with excellent transport links (the train station is two minutes walk).

I'm extremely easy going as a guest and can pretty much sleep anywhere. I don't mind messy places, but I do like things to be clean and insect free. Airbnb asks 5 things I can't live without? Wind, sea, mountains, books, music I like to travel alone because it's far better to keep your eyes on your surroundings and meet people as you go. But sometimes I've joined forces with other travelers, or friends. I intend to be a host and I'm going to offer my flat in Scotland to stay in on a short-term basis. I would like to be as friendly and helpful as possible and also flexible. I will try to ensure there is everything necessary for a comfortable stay, and to meet any reasonable requests. I intend to provide plenty of information about the surrounding area as well as travel and other practical arrangements.
