Property Description

If you’re a family of four looking for accommodation in the beautiful East Neuk, then Dragonfly Cottage is the property for you! .It is ocated in Cellardyke, a peaceful and quaint village with cobbled streets and a tiny harbour… if you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of dolphins, seals, and puffins!
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and there’s a twin bedroom for the kids. Linen and towels, as well as toiletries, are provided to help you have a hassle-free holiday, but there’s also a washing machine and tumble dryer for any emergency loads of laundry! If you’ve got little ones in tow, there’s a high chair and travel crib at the cottage meaning that you’ll have more room in the car for buckets, spades, and other holiday paraphernalia! At Dragonfly Cottage, in addition to the bedroom space, there’s a well-equipped kitchen, a lovely open living area, and a conservatory complete with a stove — all of which are great spaces for slow mornings and relaxed evenings with the family. We particularly love the splashes of tartan in the soft furnishings throughout the cottage, which are a reminder of its Scottish location, as well as the dragonfly decorations which subtly nod to the property’s name.
There are two bathrooms, which have been recently renovated and are clean and fresh. The main bathroom has a large walk-in shower and a stylish patterned tile floor. The second one comprises a WC and washing basin. Recent guests have commented that the cottage is a “very peaceful and relaxing” place to be, that it was “clean and had everything they needed”, that it was “spotless and comfortable”, and that it has a “fabulous location” — we couldn’t agree more!
Outside the property is a luxurious hot tub, an idyllic spot to unwind after the kids go to bed. We’d recommend chilling off some champagne and making chocolate-dipped strawberries for an indulgent and romantic evening with your partner after a busy day playing games on the beach! On that note, there are lots of lovely beaches in the surrounding area. Head to Elie if you’re looking for watersports, the West Sands in St Andrews for sandcastle building and long walks, and Kingsbarns if you’d like to eat a delicious grilled sarnie from The Cheesy Toast Shack on the sands. In Cellardyke itself, there are some great outdoor activities to keep the kids entertained: East Neuk Outdoors runs a range of different workshops, everything from axe throwing to archery, bushcraft, canoeing, mountain biking, and stand-up paddle boarding. Finally, whilst on holiday at Dragonfly Cottage, you’re only a short walk from the nearby village of Anstruther which is known for its award-winning fish and chips… a trip to the Anstruther Fish Bar is definitely an activity to add to your holiday bucket list!

  • Cancellation policy

    Cancellations must be notified to and received by us in writing (preferably by email) and once received we will confirm and process your cancellation request.

    We offer Flexible Cancellation which removes the stress and worry of booking your holiday. You can cancel your booking and obtain a full refund of the lodging costs you have paid for up to ninety (90) days before the Holiday Commencement Date. For example, if your Holiday Commencement Date is a Saturday, then you can cancel as late as the prior Saturday. However, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible about your cancellation.

    If you cancel in less than 90 days of the Holiday Commencement Date then date, you may be due a partial refund from your booking:

    • Between 90 days – 30 days of the Holiday Commencement Date will refund 35% less of the total accommodation cost (the “Deposit”)
    • Less than 30 days of the Holiday Commencement Date no refund will be issued (100% of the holiday cost will be forfeited), as we will have incurred costs and are unlikely to be able to re-let our accommodation in such short period of time.

    For this reason, we strongly recommend you take out your own travel insurance for UK holidays which covers booking cancellations. This will give you the peace of mind that you will get your money back if you need to cancel your holiday at almost the last minute. If you choose not to, you accept responsibility for any loss you may incur due to your cancellation.

    This is our 3rd visit to this property in 9 months. It is totally fantastic. We will continue to be return customers! The house is Five Star, which is absolutely amazing. Not a single complaint. Outstanding! Keep it up!

    Beautiful short stay, very comfortable and the hot tub was amazing!

    Emily | 06 May 2024


    "Lovely, well-kept bungalow. Very clean and good amenities in house. The location is perfect for exploring the East Neuk of Fife, especially by car. It’s in a residential area a little back from the main part of Cellardyke / Anstruther but a nice walk to the front."

    Rebecca | 06 April 2024


    Spacious, clean and comfortable home in a beautiful area. The hot tub is fabulous for an evening. We would definitely return here and recommend other guests try the ‘Wee Chippy’ in Anstruther and ‘The Steak Barn’ at Balgove Larder in St.Andrews. The host was able to accommodate a late check out for us and dealt with a couple of issues we had (light not working & full wheely bin) promptly. Definitely recommend this place.

    "The most beautiful cottage kept to perfection. The hot tub is a great addition as well. Plenty information to help you out. Had the best few days celebrating my big birthday with friends. This is a must view and stay worth every penny paid. Can't wait to go back again."
