best for coastal beauty: catch­penny sa­fari lodges

Grazia (UK) - - Playlist -

There are not many places in the UK where you can watch a pod of dol­phins or whales swim past as you sip a sun­downer on the ter­race. Brand new Catch­penny in Leven, Fife, is one of them.

THE VIBE Stylish ad­ven­ture, with sail­ing, wind­surf­ing, pad­dle­board­ing, cycling and walk­ing routes on your doorstep. Lodges have all the home com­forts you could want, in­clud­ing king-sized beds with big thick du­vets, so­fas ( both in­side and out­side un­der the cov­ered ter­race) and pri­vate bath­rooms. CHECK OUT While away an af­ter­noon catch­ing crabs or even lob­sters off the har­bour side in nearby Elie, or head out along the Fife Coastal Path to the pretty fish­ing vil­lage of Pit­ten­weem for a nosey around the shops and gal­leries. From An­struther catch a boat to the Isle of May (£26pp; isle­of­may­ferry.com). EAT Right next door is Ar­dross Farm Shop where you can pick up a sup­per, eas­ily cooked on your stove. For a meal out, ex­cel­lent lo­cal The Ship Inn ( ship­inn.scot) will pick you up and drop you off again. The Cullen skink (£6.95) is a lo­cal favourite. THE LOWDOWN Three nights start from £420 for a can­vas lodge sleep­ing up to six. catch­pen­nyelie.co.uk
