Getting around

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.

Very Good


Reviewed 1 Sep 2017

Has to be one of the best rentals in Fife. We almost cried when we had to leave but looking forward to our next visit. Stunning views and even saw the odd Seal. Rockpooling with the kids was great fun and all on your doorstep. One word of warning, if you have a large car like us you will struggle to get through the entrance with the stones on either side.

“Perfect location next to beach”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2016

The cottage was lovely and very well equipped. It was a 1 minute walk to the rocky (and a bit of sandy) beach. The house was well laid out and there was ample parking.

“Fabulouse location and lovely house.”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2015

The house is well appointed and comfortable, with plenty of space,There are three double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite (the third is right next to the bathroom). The bunk room is not large but there is enough space. The lounge is equipped, with a TV, DVD and bt TV. The location is astounding. Though you only get sea views from the top floor, walk twenty steps and you are at the beautiful working harbour. There is ample parking for two cars, three would need a little cooperation. Only negatives are the wifi is a little temperamental, the bath is a little tricky to get out of, and the toil;et seat won't stay up in one of the en-suits. hardly great cause for complaint.

“fantastic place, superbly furnished”

“What a perfect seaside family holiday this was........!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2014

I had spent all my summer holidays as a child (this was the late '50s/early 60s) in St Andrews, a highlight being visits to the fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife. Pittenweem was one of my favourites (I recall looking on in fascination as herring were being gutted at what seemed an extraordinary speed) and time just slipped away all these years later! We were most fortunate in that the weather was glorious for the whole week , we saw a seal in the harbour every day (must be a local!) and a dolphin whilst en route to May Island. Herring House is enchanting, with virtually direct access to the beach, where the babies could play on the beach, with the adults looking on whilst enjoying a delicious tea at the 'pop-up' cafe on the strand. The latter had opened, we learned from the owner, in advance of the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival the following week. Had I done more homework I would have booked another weeks stay! Herring House has everything a large family might need, the rooms are spacious, kitchen well-equipped and beds comfortable, and though the garden is overlooked by a footpath it seems so little used that it did not detract from our enjoyment of sunbathing there. There are numerous guidebooks & reading material (well-used by our party!) and a list of "things to do in Fife". Highlights were the trip from Anstruther to May Island (puffins & seals), a fabulous seafood supper (fresh lobster & scallops) at The Mayview Hotel in St Monans and the gardens (NTS) at Kellie Castle. A petty thing, perhaps, but the refuse/recycling collection rota is such that, with a full house 2 of the three separate bins were overflowing by the end of the week!

Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted to hear that you had a lovely holiday and that you were able to reminisce when visiting this area once again. Herring House is a fabulous holiday house, a real home from home and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have noted your comments regarding refuse and we do try to endeavour the bins are emptied before and after your stay. However during your stay it very much depends on the Council weekly schedule which is out with our control. We are very sorry for this inconvenience and very much hope that we can welcome you back to Herring House in the not too distant future. Best wishes Fife Cottages
