 Big site but nice situation near beach and coastal path. Pitch hardstanding and level, close to beach. Washrooms reasonably modern, kept clean.

Reasonable space between pitches. Cos of covid shop and cafe etc not open.

Might be a bit hectic with kids in summer holidays but fine in October!

 Lovely location next to beach with great walks. Play park is excellent but older children hang around it so not always suitable for younger children.

This is a big busy site, I was on a tourer pitch in a large field area. When the site is full you are surrounded by caravans quite close together with no privacy. Pitches are uneven.

This site is big, busy and noisy but has good facilities, shower block is excellent. If you like the feel of a busy holiday park then this site is for you.

Reviewer: Caroli 1 review from this member

 Spent 3 nights here camping with grandkids, plenty for them to do with playpark, cycling, beach and walks.

Site at night was very noisy with people sitting outside till late drinking and singing, could do with a park warden to keep the noise levels down.

Toilets clean and well maintained.

Carry out food available which was good and quickly available.

 Without allowing my opinion to be influenced by Covid19 restrictions, This is a great campsite. Tucked away in the wilds of Fife, this big site is very popular. From the long drive into the site, you come into the "complex" area. Here is reception, the site shop, the restaurant, and the bar.

The bar and reception were unfortunately closed to campers at the moment. The restaurant is open early evenings for takeaway food. Face coverings and social distancing are enforced in the shop. There are many static caravans around the site (this is Abbeyford Leisure's main business), but the large terraced touring field slopes gently down to the dunes and beach at the bottom of the site.

Pitches are both grass and hard-standing, with 10amp EHUs the norm. Water standpipes are within easy reach of most pitches, too. The shower and toilet blocks were well cleaned and almost always immaculate.

A separate accessible toilet and shower were available, and again always immaculate, although the room was colder than the other showers. The sanitary blocks were protected by numeric keycode locks, with a different code for the accessible unit.

Chemical toilet waste disposal points were in at least 2 locations around the site.

Locally, most attractions remain closed due to Covid19, but in "normal" circumstances there's lots to do locally.

A short drive to Anstruther takes you to the Anstruther Fish Bar, an award-winning fish & chip restaurant, and for an amazing seafood lunch, a furher short drive to the seafood shack on Crail harbour will see you eating the freshest lobster and crab you'll find anywhere!

If you book your stay at Elie Holiday Park online, there are free nights and other discounts available. Our 7-night stay cost £129.

There are superb views from the dunes at the bottom of the site, over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and the Lothians, including the parked oil rigs!

Supermarkets are available in Leven and St. Andrews, and the nearest petrol station (a Calor Gas stockist) is 2-3 miles away in Colinsburgh.

There's a super Pirate themed play park for the kids on site, too!

Reviewer: Magsons1 3 reviews from this member

 Site was in a nice location, enjoyed the ease of contactless booking in. Views were stunning, even the bay with the oil rigs were kind of spectacular.

Pitch seemed a little uneven, and was, could do with a little remedial work to level a bit.

Shower block was clean and well presented, although not big enough for the site when full.

Water and waste water wasnít plentiful in respect of having only three fresh water standpipes, and grey waste was a little bit of a trek to the shower block, which was a drain in the middle of what looked like a Motorhome parking bay for emptying waste.

Not sure about that one.

Bar was doing takeaway as was cafe I think, but takeaway beer isnít really my thing.

Nice stay and certainly would be going back at some point.

Weather was ok

Reviewer: Alan551 12 reviews from this member

 Just returned from 4 nights at Elie holiday park and sadly it will be a while before we return.

The site has now become a home for travellers and their commercial vans which scoot about the site at all hours, not on the road I may add but between other vans and tents to the disregard of any other holiday makers.

This site was a great family holiday park at one time but sadly no more

Teenagers are drinking in the pirate ship play area late into the night and leaving glass tumblers strewn around which is fairly evident in the morning.

Could this be due to no security or touring wardens on site after 6. 00 oclock.

So come on Elie management get a grip and return this site to its former glory

 The site has a great outlook but the vans are crammed in, the 6mtr rule, err nope.

Itís location is great for coastal walks and the walk to Elie is superb, go on the coast path and return over the Golf course, along the footpath via fields ending up near the site reception.

Takes about 1. 15 hours there, 45 back the way we chose. Beautiful beach and some nice little shops, couple of pubs and great Cafes.

On the coast path there is an old wartime gun emplacement along with a map of same nearby.

Site wise itís a little scruffy and no wardens were ever seen but all was well, facilities are good and you need a key with a £20 deposit.

The bar was noisy and busy and mainly focussed on bingo but the cafe and the rear was far quieter.

Nice stay but to much bingo and crammed in pitches for us.

 Have visited this site more than once as it's one of our favourites. Great facilities, brilliant location and all round fab place to spend a few days. Lots to do in thee local area but no real need to venture far as the site is well appointed. Restaurant, bar, cafe, and take away all on site as well as an amazing pirate ship play park for the weans!

Reviewer: Shargar23 3 reviews from this member

 Spent 2 nights with my husband and 2 kids. Lovely clean site and toilet blocks but there is a £20 cash deposit required for the key to the toilet block that we Weren't aware of and you only get 1 key which caused a problem when my son needed and my husband was already away with the key. We didn't go to the entertainment but my son loved playing at the pirates ship park.

Nice and close to the beach which is clean but stony and a lot of seaweed.

Weather was brilliant when we were away so made it even better a stay

 Am actually staying at the site. It's beautiful and so are the scenery. The site itself is brilliant but I do wish the guy with the motor bike wouldn't rev up first thing in the morning or late at night. Where's The security
