There are spectacular views towards the Isle of May, Berwick Law and the Bass Rock from all the main rooms. From the comfort of breakfast in bed, guests can enjoy the ever changing colours and moods of the sea and sky. Watch the sunrise, the fishing boats returning to harbour or emptying the creels, and sometimes a pod of dolphins leaping past. Whales and seals also inhabit these waters. Catherine Cottage is a traditional terraced fisherman’s cottage. It benefits from a south facing walled garden with a gate that leads straight on to the shore. It has a well-established flower and herb garden offering seasonal variety, with an area of lawn and places to sit and enjoy peace and refreshment.

A short stroll brings you to the adjoining town of Anstruther, which has a good selection of local shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The Fife Coastal Path runs along the road through the village and leads in either direction to the delights of secluded coves, little fishing villages, and white sandy beaches. The Millennium Cycle Way runs through central Fife, with miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore. There are daily ferries and boat trips leaving from Anstruther between April and September that take you to the Isle of May, which is a National Nature Reserve. It is home to colonies of sea birds including puffins and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies. Historic St Andrews is 10 miles away and has a host of golf courses, boutique shops, and a wide range of bars and restaurants. In Cellardyke there is a shop within 500 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

There are 2 steps to the entrance, 8 steep, narrow steps from the front door to the ground floor, 5 wide steps to the first floor and steep narrow steps to second floor. 2 steps in the garden. Pets are only allowed on the ground floor (kitchen).

“We had a super week at Catherine Cottage. Its delightfully cute and cosy, with fabulous views and a lovely wee garden. We really enjoyed sitting at the sea gate steps watching the waves. Its a great location for exploring the coastal path and other parts of Fife. Highly recommended.”

“lovely cottage, with amazing sea views and access. it was comfortable and the beds were lovely, slept like a log , even when the waves were loud!only downside was the heating had to be on all the time, as the single glazed windows struggled with the strong winter wind. proper authentic seaside cottage feeling though!really enjoyed the weekend, would visit again.”

“What a wonderful cottage. Nothing not to like about it. Views are amazing as are walks and local amenities. Photographs dont show it but there is a really good shower cubicle and if youre not too busy walking WiFi is excellent too. Returning in August and look forward to seeing how the garden looks then.”

“Beautiful fisherman's cottage in excellent location. Very homely, warm and cosy. Loved all the coastal touches. Beautiful views from lounge and bedrooms. Kitchen had everything needed and led onto garden. Imagine this is a real little haven in the summer months or on a fine autumn day glass in hand!!! Many thanks”
