    Catherine Cottage occupies an idyllic position on the East Neuk of Fife coast in the unique, picturesque village of Cellardyke. There are spectacular views towards the Isle of May, Berwick Law and the Bass Rock from all the main rooms. From the comfort of breakfast in bed, guests can enjoy the ever changing colours and moods of the sea and sky. Watch the sunrise, the fishing boats returning to harbour or emptying the creels, and sometimes a pod of dolphins leaping past. Whales and seals also inhabit these waters. Catherine Cottage is a traditional terraced fisherman’s cottage. It benefits from a south facing walled garden with a gate that leads straight on to the shore. It has a well-established flower and herb garden offering seasonal variety, with an area of lawn and places to sit and enjoy peace and refreshment.
    A short stroll brings you to the adjoining town of Anstruther, which has a good selection of local shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The Fife Coastal Path runs along the road through the village and leads in either direction to the delights of secluded coves, little fishing villages, and white sandy beaches. The Millennium Cycle Way runs through central Fife, with miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore. There are daily ferries and boat trips leaving from Anstruther between April and September that take you to the Isle of May, which is a National Nature Reserve. It is home to colonies of sea birds including puffins and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies. Historic St Andrews is 10 miles away and has a host of golf courses, boutique shops, and a wide range of bars and restaurants. In Cellardyke there is a shop within 500 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

    Pros Location good Excellent Views Cons Cleanliness very poor.Stained Pillows.Stained Mattress protector. Crockery and Cutlery had to be cleaned before we could use them. Carpets stained in all levels. Cushions and throws dusty.Books and ledges very dirty.One member of our party has allergies to dust and found level of dust uncomfortable. When using the shower water did not drain away as trap in shower is broken.Mould on sealant on shower. Back garden path very overgrown.Only a small piece of the garden usable as the bushes are overgrown.One of the main reasons I booked the cottage was to use the garden.The picture on your website in no way shows what the garden looks like now.

    It was our first time to Fifeshire and had a great time. Catherine Cottage was lovely. The kitchen had everything we needed, including kitchen knives that were actually sharp!! The garden we called The Secret Garden - it was so peaceful, and opening the door at the back of the garden revealing the Firth of Forth. We sat outside everyday looking at the water and all the birds. The bed was very comfortable (I have a bad back, but the mattress supported it very well), again looking out over the water. Easy walk into Anstruther with plenty places to eat and drink, or just stroll along the harbourside. Best fish and chips we've had in a long long time. Catherine Cottage is one of the best places we've stayed in, and we've stayed in many.

    Beautiful little cottage, the location is amazing right onto the rocky beach. The cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed. Parking was the only slight negative. We always managed to find a parking space, had to walk a short distance sometimes.

    I did not find the cottage very clean. The carpets had dirty marks throughout the cottage. The restriction of the dog only being able to stay in the kitchen should be pointed out before the booking and definitely before you arrive at the cottage. Garden chairs could not be used as they were covered in white dust. Not sure what this was. :(

    We had a lovely short break here. We loved the characterful cottage which is in an amazing location with outstanding views of the sea. It has a lovely family feel, with plenty of works of art and books. We hope to stay there again soon.

    We had a relaxing time and our dog Molly loved the beach walks and coastal walks. The views from the bedroom and the lounge were great and we saw some wonderful sunrises. The cottage was comfortable, well equipped, and the garden great for sitting in the sunshine listening to the sound of the waves on the shoreline. It would have been useful to know about the house rules/restrictions for dogs at time of booking. I can imagine it would be difficult for people who have a dog that doesn't like being left on it's own. For this reason we would not go back to the cottage.

    Picked this cottage as we'd been before and loved it - this time it was to escape fireworks for our hounds.....only one hour on the Monday night and it was an organised display in Anstruther, which to be honest wasn't really too much of a problem for our hounds! Did feel the place wasn't quite as clean as time before - but not too much of a deal, merely washing some plates/cutlery and cleaning shower before use..... Ideal for us though and certainly wouldn't stop us from wanting to come back - if we're allowed!!

    This is the second time this year we stayed at cottage..in July we saw dolphins in the bay which we watched sat on the edge of the bed in the double room!! The only slight downside was parking ....finding a spot in July was difficult at times but not insurmountable, in October it was no problem at all. Overall however a great place to stay. A warm, comfortable and welcoming cottage with outstanding views....what more could one ask?
