We enjoy welcoming all kinds of people to come and stay.

The Beach House is run by Ariadne and Lizzie Cass-Maran, a married couple who’ve lived in Burntisland since 2012.

Walkers and cyclists

You can’t travel through Burntisland on the Fife Coastal Path without practically hitting the house, making it perfectly located for walkers and cyclists to stop off for a hot shower and a comfy bed.

Our kitchen has a washing machine and tumble dryer if you need to clean off the mud and sand, and we can store your bike securely for you.

Wild swimmers

Burntisland bay is a fantastic place for wild swimming, as it is well sheltered with no rip tides or dangerous currents. We’re out swimming or kayaking in the sea at least once a week – in wetsuits, unless it’s the height of summer!

We can lend you a towbag for increased visibility and extra safety, and we provide swim towels.


We welcome kids of all ages – our double sofa bed can fit on a couple at a time, or we can lend you a travel cot for a small £5 to cover meticilous cleaning.

Disabled people

Most of the space is wheelchair accessible, and our accessibility section breaks this down more specifically. It is a quiet neghbourhood but we’ve provided a list of potential noice concerns if this is an issue for you. Whiles we’re limited by the nature of the house, we always listen and will do as much as we can to make your stay more comfortable.


Burntisland beach is a fantastic area for dog walking, and yours is very welcome to join you for your stay here. We don’t have a limit on dog numbers.

Edinburgh festivalgoers

There are regular trains from Burntisland to Edinburgh, and it’s a 40 minute journey. This makes it an ideal place to stay if you’re looking for somewhere a bit quieter and cheaper than the city.
