Just arrived home and want to go back! Really beautiful cottage with a gorgeous shabby chic interior, views are mesmerising from garden and conservatory, utterly breathtaking. Real luxury inside and out it also helps that it's dog friendly, can't wait to go back!
Where to start? Fabulous stone cottage, amazing views over the harbour, superb decor and such a friendly owner. I couldn't have wished for more. Pittenweem is the quintessential Scottish fishing village with a real, active fishing fleet. There is also a resident seal called Sammy and there are puffins on Isle of May. The locals are
helpful and have a great sense of humour. I'm here with friends for part of the fantastic Art Festival. I've met people from all over the world.
The cottage is like something out of Homes and Gardens. Beautiful pale colours with comfy sofa, wonderful log burner, large well equipped kitchen and very modern bathrooms. The good sized enclosed, walled garden has a summer house, lots of pretty solar lights which twinkle at night, and comfortable everlasting wicker garden furniture. It is dog and child friendly with secret sections of the garden where frazzled parents can relax with a large glass of Pimms.
I don't want to leave but sadly it's already significantly booked up. I have booked for next year. Do go. There are great places to visit such as St Andrews about 20 minutes away, Anstruther and St Monans other fishing villages. Elie is nearby and great for water sports. There are lots of walks, golf courses and good eateries nearby. I hear that a place called The Smoke House in St Monans is very good.
I'm watching the beautiful pink sunset and the fishing boats go out for all night fishing.
Oh and the local bakers is fabulous. Really unusual selection of yummy looking cakes and bread.
I think we were probably one of the first visitors to the newly refurbished cottage and what an amazing place to spend a few days! Wish we had booked it for longer though. It is superbly furnished and we instantly felt relaxed and settled in to a beautiful peaceful haven! The rooms are superbly furnished in nice soft colours and the log burning fire adds a wonderful touch for the slightly colder evenings. It has a great garden and nice conservatory to sit in later in the day. It is ideally located with great local amenities including nice coffee shops and a great fish and chip shop! An easy walk in to Anstruther and a short drive to St A makes it a great all round location. We will definately be back!
