“Wow. What incredibly luxurious safari tents, a stunning view and fabulous hospitality. We had such a fantastic weekend stay as a family of four. We loved all the gorgeous touches, the tasteful soft furnishings and simply amazing space. The location is perfect with so much to do nearby.
Our daughter still reminisces about the weekend; exploring the rock pools, playing with friends on the beach and toasting marshmallows at the fire pit in the evening. It was also such a perfect spot for us adults to relax with friends and their families as a group. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.”
The name Catchpenny, or 'Catch-a-Penny' as it sometimes used to be known is the name of a former tavern located close to the site between Elie and St Monans. In the olden days villagers were not allowed to drink alcohol in their villages on a Sunday. So what did they do, they built a tavern between the villages so they could have a drink on a Sunday! The tavern unfortunately is long gone but have a look on the map on the ceiling of the Ship Inn in Elie and see if you can spot it!
