Just returned from a week at the Cooperage and cannot wait to go back. A great location for the harbour and the costal path which gives terrific views all along the walk. The harbour is a hive of industry and the fishermen very friendly and informative. The pub/ restaurant / fish and chip shop is very good and the staff helpful and make time to chat even when very busy. Every village along the coast is worth a visit as is St Andrews and the surrounding area. The house is very welcoming clean and comfortable. Had no problem sleeping after busy days visiting the area but did find time to have a drink in the garden before bed.
We were at the Cooperage last week for 4 nights. As can be seen from the pictures, the cottage is finished beautifully and very modern, bright and airy.
The cottage sits at the top of the hill leading to the harbour and close to the entrance to the coastal path to Anstruther (a gorgeous walk).
As above and very comfy beds! Plenty of space too
Not so good points-
There is a large holiday rental property next door and we found the noise from BBQs etc next door disruptive to our toddler's early bed times (the group were not in any way obnoxious, just outdoors and very close by) so this might be worth considering for those with young children
The bathrooms (particularly the en suite) need a deep clean! The shower had someone else's shower gel on the tiles, the grout and seals are in need of a good scrub, both toilet bowls showed 'evidence' of the last resident's visits and the pebble look vinyl had some sort of sticky (chewing gum?) substance on it and really needs a good scrub. It's a pity as the rest of the cottage was so clean and lovely but the bathrooms let it down within minutes of our arrival. Also 1 toilet roll provided to share between 2 bathrooms for 4 nights..!
We had a lovely time in Pittenweem, The Cooperage was perfect for us, and our friends from the UK.
Close to the harbor and the coastal path was beautiful; we walked to Anstruther and had fish & Chips at their famous fish house which was very tasty!
Pittenweem, and the Cooperage was a very nice place to visit and i would recommend either, or both to anyone.
