Perfect - loved everything!.

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for a group of 6 - 9. All amenities, well maintained, clean, friendly owners who take pride in their property & provide little extras for great customer service. (Thanks for the special treats on arrival and sufficient towels and linens)

Morning coffee & breakfast sitting atop the break wall or a scotch nightcap listening to the tide - we were smitten!

Loved the location for a relaxing week filled with hikes on Fife Coastal Path to nearby St. Monans & Anstruther. Day trips to Edinburgh & Glasgow and of course nearby St. Andrews. Enjoyed eating locally and loved the Cocoa Tree, Anstruther Fish & Chips and local pub in St. Monans. Very friendly people with an active harbour to watch on morning walks.

I would highly recommend this location and property to my family and friends. Jennifer & Fergus were delightful and our week passed far too quickly. We will return!

Wonderful, comfortable, right on the sea

The house was spacious, well equipped and nice and warm. It even had scrabble to play in the evenings! We'd love to come again.

Bringing in the New Year at Pittenweem - superb

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Jennifer and Fergus' house in beautiful Pittenweem. This was our first year bringing in the new year away from home and we couldn't have picked a better location or home. The house is located right by the sea and views from the sitting rooms and bedrooms are superb - wonderful to fall asleep to the sound of the sea and wake up to beautiful sunrises. The house is beautiful, tastefully furnished and rooms are full of interesting features and ornaments. Equipped with everything that we needed to make our stay a home from home. In addition to the rooms being comfortable we made use of the various sitting areas through out each day making the house a versatile living space for a big family group. Everyone fell in love with the house and Pittenweem and didn't want to go home.

We brought the New Year in with the locals at the pub along the port - such welcoming and friendly people. We also took advantage of the coastal paths, enjoying walks to Anstruther, St Monans and Crail. The local Chocolatier was also a favourite with the family.

Jennifer and Fergus were very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful.

We would thoroughly recommend both the location and home and would love to return for another holiday.

Excellent holiday house on the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning, spacious, period house right on the sea shore with splendid views. The house is clean and very well equipped. The owners had thoughtfully provided a welcoming pack of essential supplies.

The five bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living rooms are well furnished and allowed my family plenty of room, with the long kitchen/dining room providing the perfect place to gather for meals. Because it's on the shore and in a pedestrian area there was no traffic noise, waking up to the sights and sound of the sea was perfect.

Pittenweem is a beautiful village in the East Neuk, which is itself a fascinating place for a holiday. Don't miss eating freshly cooked lobsters on the harbour in Crail, or buying freshly caught langoustines from the fishing boats landing at Pittenweem a short walk from the house. Numerous blue flag beaches are nearby with the cultural delights of St Andrews and Kellie Castle a short drive away.

All in all an excellent holiday in a beautiful location.

Lovely house excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I have been on many Self Catering holidays in Scotland and immediately felt welcomed upon arrival. The "welcome" food parcel, the water and handkerchiefs left on the bedside cabinets showed a genuine attention to detail and a desire for the guests to feel relaxed. The house itself is spacious, clean,has all modern appliances and also supplies all towels. The location is superb with views right over the beach which itself is only a matter of steps away. We had lunch, breakfast, cups of tea and the occasional glass of wine sitting on the sea wall just enjoying the view. The kids just loved jumping down on the beach and searching in rock pools, building sandcastles and playing games. Pittenweem itself is a lovely village and a fine fish and chip shop. It also boasts its own chocolate cafe. The other towns and villages in the East Neuk are close by so no great travelling is required to visit. a visit to the Carnie Fruit Farm is recommended as is Scotland's Secret Bunker. For fine dining the restaurant in St Monans is worth a look too.

All in all we all really enjoyed our stay and were sad when we had to go home. We hope we can return soon.
