St Monans Holiday Park

A small park in a prime coastal location

St Monans Holiday Park

Award-winning St Monans Holiday Park is set in a prime coastal location, quietly nestled between the East Neuk villages of Elie and Pittenweem. 

Overlooking the Fife Coastal Path our Signature Plus and Castaway Vista holiday homes boast stunning sea views and are the perfect escape for a rejuvenating break. There is also a small touring and tent field located at the entrance to the holiday park.

The beautiful Isle of May National Nature Reserve is a dominant feature on the horizon and is teeming with wildlife. This must-see island is a spectacular boat trip away from the bustling seaside town of neighbouring Anstruther.

St Monans has welcomed the rich and famous and is home to an impressive kirk which provided the backdrop to the filming of The Railway Man starring Academy award-winners Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. It's well worth a visit as is St Monans windmill which was used to pump the salt water into saltpans for drying.

The holiday park is set next to the iconic St Monans windmill and above a tidal pool, popular with wild swimmers throughout the year. Guests are welcome to the enjoy the bar, restaurant and cafe at nearby Elie Holiday Park.

Free high speed Wifi is available in our holiday homes and for a small charge on the touring/tent field. 

Just a few strides from the Fife Coastal Path

Set above the Fife Coastal Path you can enjoy magnificent sea views from our Castaway Vista and Signature Plus holiday homes across the Firth of Forth. Our Newark Touring and Tent Field is set in a sheltered position close to the park entrance and a short walk away from St Monans iconic Windmill and the dramatic Fife Coastal Path.

Lovely site, peaceful. Caravan was immaculate. Dog friendly. Lovely view from patio door to decking. Would definitely return to May view 2.

Fiona Mccuish Stayed at Monans Holiday Park

This is a small holiday park. 5 caravans are rented out by the site owners, the rest are privately owned. There is a small touring site with approx 12 pitches. The toilet facilities are clean and the site has a laundry [and] sinks for dish washing are also available. I stayed in one of the rental vans that were immediately above the beach. It has a fantastic view and was clean with all you needed for a self catering holiday.

Keith RussellStayed at St Monans Holiday Park

Lovely park, stayed in no 11 May View, couldn’t ask for anything better. View from caravan was fantastic, right across the Forth. Caravan was clean and well presented, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Will definitely go back. 5 Stars from us.
