Silverdyke Park and the beautiful Isle of May

Happy New Year to all our holiday home owners and touring customers. Silverdyke Park is currently closed (and a bit damp and grey right now!) but we are looking forward to signs that spring is not far away, and getting ready to open again for holiday home owners on 1 March and tourers on 11 March.

Even when it is chilly and grey, the East Neuk of Fife is so beautiful. From our office window we can see through the mist to the Isle of May sitting out there in the ever changing Forth River. The Fife Coastal Path is a bit boggy in places at the moment but, with a pair of sturdy walking boots and a cosy jacket, it is still possible to walk along the sea coast and enjoy the natural wildness of the East Neuk of Fife in winter…and afterwards to find a warm and welcoming pub or café open nearby to reward your efforts.

The Isle of May is well worth a visit when visiting season opens again. The May Princess ferry sails from Anstruther to the Isle of May on most days from 1st April to 30th September. The island is about 5 miles off shore and is home to significant colonies of seabirds including the much loved Puffin. You will also see the ruins of a 12th century monastery – so pack a picnic and see this special place for yourself. The May Princess ferry website has additional information:

There are many inviting places to go when the May Princess brings you back to shore. The Haven Bar and Restaurant is just a short walk from Silverdyke Park – tucked away on the old Cellardyke harbour front in a very picturesque building. It has a lovely atmosphere and friendly, welcoming staff.  Back along the waterfront where the May Princess docks in Anstruther are a number of lively cafes and pubs. Coast Coffee is a tiny, cheerful place with outside seating where you can sit in the sun and enjoy a great coffee and something savoury or sweet to go with it. Then there are fantastic fish and chips to be found in several places around the harbour; ice-cream parlours, and cosy pubs and restaurants like the Boathouse.  You can be assured that there are plenty of delightful places to discover – all in walking distance from Silverdyke Park – so why not book today on 01333-313-098.
