Silverburn Park (FEAT Trading CIC)
3 Silverburn Cottages

Tel: 01333 278775

Heart, Mind, Soul: Silverburn is our project to breathe life back into Silverburn Park, a neglected 27 acre public park on the outskirts of Leven.  We have a long term plan to renovate the old Flax Mill as a Visitor Centre and Community Hub, with a cafe and restaurant, meeting and event space, artist's studios, and a backpackers’ hostel.  The projected opening date, subject to securing the funding required, is Easter 2025. In the shorter term we plan to open a campsite in 2019, with facilities for 12 tents, 3 eco camping pods, and 4 campervans.  You can find more details on our website.

We are ideally placed for people using the Fife Coastal Path, with a link path that follows the Miledyke from our car park down to the coast.  Our Cottage Window cafe serves hot drinks and a variety of hot rolls and home baking, and is dog friendly - please check our Facebook page for opening times. All proceeds from the cafe go back into supporting the regeneration of Silverburn Park. We also have public toilets available during the day.
