Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just home after the best ever long weekend at Puffin Hollow. Stayed here with my husband and 2 kids and spent some quality family time together. The cottage was perfectly equipped, comfortable, cosy and welcoming. Couldnt ask for any more...all in all...exactly what we wished for. Right on costal path, couple of doors down from pub, harbour on door step (great times watching boats come in with catch...even went aboard one!!), ice cream shop a stones throw away, fish n chips to rival anstruther, great playpark on hill for kids....just loved it!! Relaxing holiday resulting in amazing memories. Thank you.

“Exquisite cottage, fabulous location ”

My partner and I recently enjoyed a three night stay at Puffin Hollow and found it to be exactly what we were looking for. The location of the cottage is ideal (right by the bay) and within walking distance of the few shops within Pittenweem. The cottage itself is; exceptionally comfortable, fantastically and carefully decorated and abundantly equipped. The owners are particularly friendly and have obviously paid careful attention to detail. All things considered, this is the perfect place for a relaxing romantic break. We shall certainly return.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Puffin Hollow recently with our wee daughter. The cottage was very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly imagine. We kept looking in cupboards and finding even more utensils, pots, tupperware etc. The bed is the most comfortable I've ever slept in. It was like sleeping on a cloud. - amazing!
We didn't have particularly good weather but still felt at home and all cosy with the heating on and plenty of relaxing and tea and biscuits. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this charming wee cottage :-)

“Quiet, comfortable, modern, yet quaint, beautifully presented, great location”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid March 2015. Warm, comfortable bed, . Great open plan space in the living area with modern well equipped kitchen with bar seating or alternatively a table to pull out with chairs which fold away, bureau for laptop, writing etc. Comy sofas, TV, DVD and view to the street with pretty window box. Entrance porch area excellent for boots, coats, pram etc. Bedroom is simple, very comfortable bed, side tables with lamps, wardrobe. Bathroom with shower in bath, hot water on demand, good shower. Lots of little things make this a special place to stay from the tasteful and coordinated interior with pictures and 'by the sea' things dotted about together with thoughtful dog bowls, towel, torch, picnic set. Pittenweem is a great location with lots to do - Isle of May for puffins, Elie for seaside watersports for children, coastal walks, Cambo gardens. In Pittenweem itself there is an active harbour with fishing boats where they catch mainly langoustine/crayfish, which was interesting to visit in the evening. We've stayed in many rental properties and couldnt find fault with Puffin Hollow.

Very pleased with Puffin Hollow. Had everything we needed. Right on the Harbour, but quiet when inside. Worried about parking but managed to park right outside all weekend , despite being busy due to lovely weather.
