5 Cottages In mature & peaceful Garden. Good availability as there are 5 units.



Updated: 17-Jul-2016
Cottage in Pittenweem, Fife, Central Scotland, Scotland - 10 - 15 Minute Walk Into Pittenweem Along Pavement

One of 5 cottages set in a mature garden that used to form part of an estate. This makes for a very tranquil setting but also very well located to visit the whole of Fife and The East Neuk in particular. St Andrews is 15 minutes by car. Crail - 15 minutes by car. St Monans - 5 minutes by car. Elie - 10 minutes by car.

About the Owner

Madeira was owned and run as a holiday destination by the Duncan family for 20 years. We bought the house and cottages at the end of 2012 as we fell in love with the extraordinary garden and wanted to bring our kids up in this serene environment. We are not new to the self catering holiday industry as we own a business in Edinburgh called The Mews Company. We understand what people need in a cottage to enable them to spend as long or as little time in the cottage as they want. Our desire is to ensure our guests can enjoy their time at Madeira and that the cottages are an excellent base in which to explore the local area. We love it here and we hope you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Many thanks for your hospitality it’s nice to meet people who care about their guests." Mr ans Mrs Winton

We loved our 5 night stay at Madeira, the cottage (Pittenweem) was so clean and comfortable, garden and woods area very sheltered and the birds and other wildlife a great pleasure to see and hear.

We have stayed in Fife several times, but this location is special, very warm and sunny on even on cold days, which was so different from the climate we had travelled from on the West Coast - wet, windy, rain and hail. The local area has so many places to visit, historic, wonderful local shops and beaches are quite spectacular. We will visit again as soon as we can. Mr and Mrs Charlton

"The cottage was spotlessly clean and well appointed and Jamie and family made us feel extremely welcome! Would certainly recommend a break here and we plan to return!" Lynda C

Tranquil surroundings

We were made to feel most welcome, even our young dog and visiting family. Nothing was to much trouble. Cottages are in lovely grounds in a perfect location for visiting the area.

The cottage was clean and had everything we needed.

We fully recommend a stay and intend returning ourselves
