We went there in August just before school/work started again it was a lovely place and a 5 minute walk to the beach. There was also a playground for the kids with a big pirate ship that they could play on. There was a little cafe near by that sold lovely food for a great price, as well as a great restaurant. They both had toilets in them. They also had a bar that had entertainment every night it wasn't all for adults they had kids entertainers as well, they also had someone dressed as Mickey Mouse and Marshal from Pawpatrol. They kids were able to go up and get there pictures taken. The parents took the picture so you don't have to pay. The holiday home caravan we stayed in was beautiful and very clean and spacious. We all had a great time and are going back in October.

Stayed here after reading positive reviews and stayed for 2 nights. Large site with lots of static homes but has large touring field. We were right at the beach end facing a super sandy beach which was great for walking the dog.

Facilities good have to leave a 20 deposit for toilet block but individual bathrooms with showers and toilets in. Clean and hot showers although timed and stop frequently. Only complaint was there was not one plug in the wash uip area which is annoying.

Good site for exploring Fife coast, lots for the kids and would be happy to stay again. We didn't use it but large restaurant and entertainment.

First visit to Fife and picked Elie due to the favourable comments from other reviewers and I wasn't disappointed.

Pitch fee was 16 per night for two people which was great value, the pitches were mostly hard gravel with some grassy areas close by, the bay is literally yards away from the site with stunning views across the Firth of Forth.

There is one Toilet block which adequately served the site, there are 8 personal showering cubicles, a laundry room and outside sinks for washing your plates etc.

For children there is an imaginative Robinson Crusoe play area, for adults there is a bar lounge which provides entertainment at weekends, there is also an on site shop.

The site is perfect for touring the Fife coastal route, I would definitely visit again.

This is a great site.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed our stay.

It's a great location right on the beach, the beach itself is very clean and is a mixture of rocks and sand, the kids loved exploring the rock pools and making sand castles. There is also the most amazing pirate themed play park which was also a great hit for them.

We had fish and chips from the takeaway window one night and that was reasonably priced and also very nice, we didn't use the bar or restaurant area so I can't comment on that.

Shower and toilet block was always clean and tidy every time I used it.

On a bit of a downside, we were pitched close to the bar area and at chucking out time around midnight it did get very noisy, so my advise would be to get a pitch away from there, unless of course you don't want far to stagger home.

We'll be back again this year.

Stayed here 22 - 24 may, great site, toilets and showers were very clean (20 deposit for key). Ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was fab also had breakfast before leaving. Shop on site, . Pub, games room, restaurant, large play park, football pitch and right on the beach. Pot wash, laundry. Had an EHU and paid 48 for 2 nights, 10 mins drive from St Andrews. Entertainment both nights were very good, bingo then Guitarist/ Duo respectively. Staff very polite and helpful.

Spent a few nights here during the first week of the school Easter holidays. It was a last minute booking and this is not the type of site I would normally visit. I had read the reviews with an open mind.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a tent on an EHU pitch. There are only 8 tent pitches and the rest of the pitches are for the tin tenters. The pitches were a generous size and next to the facility block (showers, toilets and pot wash area). The reception with the bistro and entertainment area were a short walk away. The pitches for caravans were smaller and more crammed together in rows. For those pitching a tent/awning, remember to pack your sturdy pegs. The ground was quite hard and sandy with it being so close to the beach. I am sure it also gets a hammering from the wind. Something we thankfully didn't experience.

I can imagine at peak times this site would be very noisy. We were lucky to encounter no problems with noise from other campers or from the evening entertainment. We did not use the bar area but we did have breakfast in the bistro twice. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. They do evening meals and offer a takeaway service also.

The play area was a big attraction for kids all ages. There is a big pirate boat climbing frame that was being well used. For football fanatics there is a football area with goals.

We were fortunate with the weather. It was warm and sunny for the beginning of April. The beach is a stones throw from the site. Its a pretty bay with shallow water safe enough for kids to paddle whilst being supervised. There are lots of walks around the site. You can walk into the pretty village of Elie from the beach but remember your sensible foot ware for this. For people planning a longer stay, this is a great base for exploring the East Neuk of Fife.

I would visit this site again but would try and avoid weekends and Bank Holidays when it is at full capacity. All members of staff that we dealt with were very nice and helpful.
