The Fife region
Tucked into a corner of the east coast of Scotland between St Andrews and Edinburgh, the East Neuk of Fife is one of Scotland's most beautiful regions. It has a character all its own, attracting artists by the thousands to its unique combination of history, sea, farmland and beaches, its picturesque fishing villages with their Dutch-style houses and its world famous golf courses. There is so much to do here for the whole family, from kayaking to horseriding, and yet there is great peace here too. In the summer, flowers line the hedgerows and the fields are rich with crops while fishing boats bob in the sea. It's a perfect place to relax, to eat well, and to recharge the batteries. Eight coastal villages comprise the East Neuk - each with its own special character.
Pittenweem - its name is Gaelic for place of the cave - is a working fishing port, its busy harbour being the main landing point for the daily catch. It is a small village of some 1500 inhabitants, with a history not just of fishing and trading but of art too. In August over 100 artists exhibit at the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival and over 30 artists make their permanent home here. The village is blissfully situated, white houses with red pantiled roofs tumbling down to harbour and spreading up and beyond to the fields above. It is situated between Anstruther with its bustling harbour, the Fisheries Museum, supermarkets, various shops and renowned restaurants and the quieter village of St Monans, home to an excellent fish restaurant.
Pittenweem is a very well stocked village with a butchers, bakers, chemists, hairdresser, fish and chips shop (many think it's the best on the coast), a few pubs, the wonderful Cocoa Tree chocolate and teashop, the Heron bistro on the High Street, and the new Pittenweem Inn on the outskirts. This is a haven for art lovers, for foodies, and for those who simply want to enjoy the unique atmosphere of an historic village - you can still visit the cave that once housed a hermit and gave the village its name. This area is particularly attractive to golfers of course - there are some wonderful courses within half an hour: Anstruther (1 miles away, its club house provides an excellent lunch), Balcomie Links at Crail, Elie, Balbirnie Park, Kingsbarns, Scotscraid, Charleton, Lundin Links, Carmoustie (where the 2007 Open took place. And of course there is St Andrews, just 15 minutes away and its historic courses.

"Scenery was fab!"
The property was very good , it needed cupboard space for food, we had to rearrange pots and pans to make room!
The bins needed to be sorted too as we were a little confused with arrangements.
The views from the patio were stunning, the house was clean and comfortable.
We were impressed with the area especially because it was art festival week and thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the different paintings etc. we really liked the fact that we could walk along the coast right from the house.
We can't think of anything we didn't like.

"Badly let down by many small things."
Attractive location by cliff top path and a lovely view from the sun room. However property is let down by lots of little things that should be attended to. The freezer compartment door hinge is broken ,the fridge shelf for the milk is broken, rugs are permanently curled up at the corners which makes a significant trip hazard, some rails on spiral staircase are detached at bottom, underside of toilet seat was rotted and toilet china ware was stained, pillows stained, underneath bed very dusty/ dirty, outside furniture in bad state of repair, rubbish bin was full on arrival and generally damp.
Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear that you were so disappointed with your stay at Seaview. We have noted the points you made and rectified them accordingly. We can only apologise for any inconvenience caused.

"A Really Enjoyable Stay"
A very nice house to enjoy your holiday in Pittenweem. When we first arrived, from the outside we thought we would be disappointed due to the style of the building,[looked like a sheltered style house], but on entering we were very pleasantly surprised at the amount of work and effort that has gone into the house, making it a very beautiful house to stay in. The views from the sun room over the forth were stunning on if you are lucky with the weather sitting outside on the decking having breakfast/lunch was very enjoyable. The house is situated a short walk from local shops for morning paper and rolls. The house also a great base to visit local towns and St Andrews. The house is also dog friendly which is great. This was our second visit to the property and I do believe it will not be our last.

We traveled with our parents to Scotland and used Seaview Cottage as a base to explore. It was great. Clean and had all the amenities we needed to cook meals, enjoy a glass of wine and relax each evening. Seeing the sun come up every morning over the Firth of Forth was enchanting. Listening to the waves crash on shore as you go to sleep - incredible.
I would highly recomend this place.

"gorgeous sea view"
this is a beautiful location but the downstairs of the cottage is very grubby has been quality when new but badly needs a face lift and a deep clean it would have been lovely to stay in when everything was new certainly not a pleasure to return to or chill out in
will not rent from fife cottages again
Thank you for your review - you will be pleased to hear that the cottage has now had a full facelift and been completely redecorated to welcome our customers in 2014.

"Stunning views and Spotlessly Clean Cottage"
I stayed in October 2012 with my husband, daughter and mum and dad and we had a great time. The view from the dining area/livingroom is just simply stunning, it was a delight to wake up to especially when the sun was shining over the water. The costal walk is beautiful and there are lots of great places to visit nearby. The cottage itself was very modern, bright and clean, highly recommended. I would say the one thing that could have been better would be a new sofa bed in the dining area, it really wasn't suitable for us to use and luckily we had taken along a blow up bed which was perfect.

"verging on perfection"
The property was just what we wanted. We could not ask for anything better. We were very lucky and had perfect weather, blue sky all week. The view from the garden at back of property excellent. Short walk along the coastal path was the lovely fishing village of Anstruther with fish and chips par excellence. We did not do too much travelling around as the weather was so good. We sat outside most afternoons and chatted to people walking the coastal path.Everyone was so friendly.

"Cosy cottage, beautiful location"
Very welcoming - Christmas cupcakes waiting for us! Cottage was very clean, warm and comfortable.
Disappointed at lack of storage space - cupboards were full of spare household items, and the fridge freezer promised in the description was only a fridge with a tiny freezer compartment, meaning I wasted a lot of food. Not a criticism, but would have been helpful to know this in advance.
I would go back!
