Description from owner


Sea Glint is a delightful self catering cottage near the sea front in the quiet fishing village of Pittenweem. The house is a Listed 18th Century cottage restored in 2006 to a high standard. Close to the harbour, Sea Glint benefits from a pleasant and sheltered courtyard. If you're looking for a restful coastal break in Fife, self catering at Sea Glint will provide a comfortable and relaxing environment moments from the sea. The cottage has recently won a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014.

Accommodation is on three floors with living room, one double bedroom, two single bedrooms, kitchen dining room, bathroom and second WC. The top floor has been converted to a bright and spacious open plan lounge. From the kitchen door you can see the Bass Rock. The sheltered courtyard provides a quiet place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the sea and the gulls.

Sea Glint has great appeal and charm, is ideal for short breaks or longer stays throughout the year and is suitable for couples or a small family. Its interior has genuine character and comfort with tasteful furnishings in a traditional style.
