The Cupboard is a beautiful little old weavers cottage in the heart of Elie. It is tastefully decorated and is a perfect little haven for enjoying the village’s many attractions. The cottage, dating from circa 1850, comprises a well set up living room with open fire and open plan galley kitchen, a small double bedroom, and an attic set up with two single beds for children aged 6 to early teens. The attic is accessed by a folding stair ladder. The clean and modern bathroom includes bath and over bath shower. With electric heating throughout, a tv, and free WiFi, it is ideal for a couple or a family with 2 growing kids. The Cupboard is only 100 yards from the award winning beach, and walking distance to the local bars and restaurants, and 400 yards from the golf and sports club.
