Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 6th time we have stayed at abbeywall. As usual, the flat was comfortable, very clean, well equipped and a wonderful base for our golfing break

Thoroughly enjoyed being here for the annual Arts Festival. Wow, what a great time and atmosphere.

Loved our short stay at Abbeywall, - just perfect for our walking weekend.

Perfect Pittenweem Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is super cosy, warm, bright and sunny, and very peaceful. Ideal for a relaxing break or as a touring base. It's in a great location right beside the start of the coastal path to walk to Anstruther (20-30 minutes) and a few minutes' walk down to the harbour, with lovely views over the sea. We walked to Anstruther for local shopping and were able to sit outside and enjoy coffee at the harbour as the weather was great. Kirsten has thought of everything that guests might need and was friendly and helpful at all stages of booking. The kitchen is well equipped, the living area is comfortable as are the bedrooms, with nice linens, great fluffy towels, robes and toiletries. We had fantastic weather and enjoyed great coastal and beach walks, and pottering about in local shops and galleries in Pittenweem and Anstruther. We were reluctant to leave as we had such a relaxing weekend - which means we'll definitely be returning.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in this apartment last weekend for 2 nights with my mother and cocker spaniel. The rooms are all beautifully decoratored and so homely with everything you would need for a stay away. So glad we stayed in Pittenweem as we enjoyed the costal walk along to Anstruther which takes approx 30 mins. Kirsten emailed us before our stay to make contact which was great so we knew if we needed anything she would be on hand. Couldnt recommend this place more highly, and would love to come back and see more of the East coast another time.

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish - didn’t want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic communication ahead of our stay. Questions we had were answered promptly and Kirsten went out of her way to find information for us. Apartment was stunning with very high standard finishes throughout. Egyptian cotton bedding, luxury toiletries and fluffy white towels all provided. Good selection of games and books in bookcase and tv in each room. The extra touches like coffee pods, milk and a lovely tin of biscuits were very much appreciated. We stayed over Christmas and the subtle decorations plus tree were perfect. Could not rate this place or Kirsten highly enough. Fantastic from start to finish. Really did not want to leave,

Clean, well resourced, fabulous views and right next to the coastal walk.

  • 5 of 5

Really comfortable and well-kept flat, with nice personal touches such as hand cream and shower gel. The views are lovely, and we were able to enjoy the coastal walks to Elie and Anstruther with our dogs each day. We arrived in a thunderstorm, which caused a short local power cut, and Kirsten's husband braved the storm to bring over candles and matches. Great weather the rest of the week, though! Highly recommended, and we hope to return.
