Best Beaches

The Kingdom of Fife is home to no fewer than 15 award-winning beaches, more than any other region in Scotland! From small pebbly coves hidden away off the beaten track to the more famous long sandy stretches such as West Sands in St Andrews, you're sure to find your perfect beach. Here's some of our favourites all within easy reach of our holiday parks and cottages.

Hot tub holidays

Look forward to slipping into your own secluded outdoor hot tub - the perfect tonic for complete relaxation. Choose St Andrews and enjoy magnificent sea views and the sparkling lights of the home of golf as the sun goes down, or go for Elie and relax within the surroundings of your own garden on the edge of the forest and a few steps from the beach.

Fife and east central Scotland has so much to offer.

There's so much to see and do on your Abbeyford Leisure holiday - here's some of the best all within easy reach of our holiday parks and cottages.

Dog friendly holidays

We know that dogs are very much part of the family, that's why our holiday parks and cottages are super dog-friendly. Look forward to some of the best coastal dog walks in Fife, dog-friendly bars and restaurants and stay in top notch accommodation with your waggy-tailed friend.

Wild Swimming

The East Neuk of Fife is blessed with many open water or wild swimming opportunities including gently shelving beaches, quiet coves and tantalising tidal pools. The tidal pool in St Monans (pictured) is one of several in Fife that have recently being restored thanks to the efforts of community members. There are also fabulous tidal pools a little further east along the coast at nearby Pittenweem and Cellardyke.

Own a holiday home

There's nothing quite like the freedom of owning a holiday home, it's a tranquil haven for you and your family to spend quality time together, to unwind, relax and have fun. It's where memories that last a lifetime are created and it's your place to escape to
