Quirky cottage by the sea with a lovely little courtyard. So peaceful and picturesque. As the rooms are on different levels and parking is not available immediately outside the cottage it might not suit the more infirm but for us (who aren't quite at that stage) it was perfect. Lots of parking available at the seafront which is only a very short walk away.
Lots of extras supplied and was very comfortable as it has been fully renovated to a very high standard. Loads to do in the surrounding area and only a short drive to other villages and St Andrews. We were lucky to have a couple of sunny days and it was a perfect wee holiday to recharge our batteries.

Would highly recommended this cottage if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Fife. There are some lovely coastal walks in either direction direct from the cottage (look out for Eider ducks and cormorants). Historic St. Andrews is a shortish drive, or bus ride, away and is definitely well worth a visit. We also found lots of really nice places to eat out in the immediate area too. There's a village shop, post office and cafés just a few minutes from the cottage and a friendly pub opposite the working harbour.
My kids complained that one of the bathroom sink taps was stiff. When that's the only complaint about a two-hundred-year-old rental property, you know it's going to be pretty faultless. I suppose I could add that the village shops have a quaint habit of closing from time to time, which is unusual for us town-dwellers nowadays. But we seemed to be a five-minute drive from a huge Co-op store in case of emergency!
The property was perfect. The location was perfect. Parking was free and easy. Driving was untroubled. Walking was beautiful along the coast in both directions. The pub was yards away and open for breakfast. The Pittenweem fish and chip shop was as good as any in England. The bakery was lovely. The Cocoa Tree cafe smelled of heaven and sold fresh chocolates.
Do visit the cave, and Anstruther. Do visit St Andrews, and the botanic gardens. Take a clockwise day out for the 13-mile path around Loch Leven, with a detour for the "Larder" cafe and farm shop.
We'll be back. I'm missing that chippy already.
Delightful, beautifully presented quirky cottage. Presented to a high standard, this cottage offers peace and tranquillity and is close to the harbour and the Fife coastal path. I had forgotten how beautiful this part of Fife was. So much to see and do in the local area it is so worth a visit.
Lovely clean and cosy cottage that was well equipped.
Sheltered location with pretty courtyard and convenient parking. Steps from the harbour where we saw seals! Had sunny weather and thoroughly enjoyed walking along this very pretty coast. We will be back.
