    Nice cottage but could do with a bit TLC. Warm, comfy beds but quite basic cottage. Kitchen a bit dated but on the whole ok.



    out of 10

    Excellent stay.



    out of 10

    Beds comfortable, living-room furniture not at all comfortable, meagre welcome pack, very basic equipment - stairs to entrance and to garden extremely steep (although warned in brochure of that). Location (beautiful little fishing village) and cleanliness very good; local amenities very poor - especially as we do not have our own transport; felt it was a bit over-priced.



    out of 10

    This is an excellent cottage, perfect for up to four people. It's location in the East Neuk of Fife is ideal to visit many nearby towns and villages. There are plenty of things to do. Walking on the Fife Coastal Path which passes by the front door of the cottage is superb in either direction. There are many opportunities to eat well in Pittenweem and anywhere else around the town. Also there is so much scope for photographers. We loved the Isle of May boat trip, quite a dramatic place to visit. All in all a superb holiday.
