The location of this lovely cottage is sublime. A quintessential fisherman’s cottage, the property has been restored to provide luxury, contemporary and tastefully furnished, self-catering accommodation yet still maintaining some of the character within a unique setting. There has been a fisherman’s cottage on this location since the 16th-century and the original building fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1908 and not rebuilt until 1918 after the Great War. The family who built the new fisherman’s cottage were from St Andrews, hence the name. The old hooks where the fishing nets were hung to dry are still on the wall in the back garden, which is now a sunny courtyard and ideal for enjoying the summer sun with a glass of wine. The old wash house still has the old sink and is great for cleaning sports equipment or rinsing the sand off your buckets and spades. Within the cottage you will find it is beautifully presented with much thought, care and attention to the finer details. Both spacious double bedrooms are en-suite, and on the ground floor there is also a large storage cupboard to store your golf equipment. The open plan living space on the first floor captures the amazing sea views to enable guests to enjoy watching the fishing boats entering and leaving the picturesque harbour, and the fish market in the morning where the local fishermen sell their catch. If fish is on your menu you can purchase freshly caught fish and prepare that special meal in the well-equipped kitchen.

From your front door you can walk to the local inn, fish and chip shop, restaurants, chocolate shop and café, local bakers shop and an interesting array of artist galleries. Explore the quaint lanes and wynds of this historic fishing village and find St Fillan’s cave in Cove Wynd, which was used as a chapel by St Fillan in the 700s. Pittenweem Arts Festival held at the beginning of August is a very popular event. The Fife Coastal Path passes through the village and is ideal for exploring the coast on foot to picturesque fishing villages and beautiful sandy beaches and coves. This area is famous for golf and St Andrews with its championship courses is within 10 miles, as are more than twenty other local courses so you will be spoilt for choice. With historic buildings, whisky distillery, museums and visitor attractions and boat trips to the Isle of May to see the wild birds, St Andrews in Pittenweem is the perfect location for all ages to explore this area of Fife.

Guest Comments

"lovely home in a superb location."

Scott, July 2019

"Very enjoyable stay, Well equipped cottage in excellent location."

Michael, May 2019

"Family of 4 absolutely loved the location and interior of this cottage. Beautifully finished and very well appointed ( we just had to provide our own cot and having a 1 year old missed having a bath for her but apart from that perfect ). Also larger than we were expecting as all the rooms are very spacious. A great location for exploring the Fife cost. Loved seeing a seal in the harbour and would recommend visiting The Dory Bistro next door, boat trip to May and visiting Elie and Tentsmuir beaches. We loved it so much we hope to come again."

Emma, April 2019

"Fabulous trip. The cottage is very conveniently located on the Fife coast, making Elie, St Monans, Wemyss, Anstruther and Crail a short drive away. St Andrews, Tentsmuir, Morton Lochs and Loch Leven are all less than an hour away.We were lucky and watched seals in the harbour from the lounge window!"

Theresa, March 2019

"Lovely cottage, bigger than we expected. Great location."

Christine, February 2019

"Very comfortable cottage with every amenity, beautifully presented, with excellent views.Highly recommended!"

Jenny, January 2019

"This house is in an ideal location for exploring the East Neuk of Fife. It was one of the best equipped houses we've ever stayed in. Spacious and comfortable with some quirky furnishings and very suitable as a winter break destination. Lots of places to eat close by and great walks!"

Catriona, January 2019

"Fantastic location and really well equipped modern cottage. Made our Christmas really special."

Alison, January 2019

"Wonderful!"

Dorothy, December 2018

"What an absolutely superb property & location, we really couldn’t have wished for more from our stay at St Andrews. The property is delightfully decorated & furnished, and the finishing touches have obviously been carefully considered to suit the overall comfort and style of the property and guests needs. The views from the dual aspect windows in the lounge over looking the harbour are stunning, we were so lucky that the weather decided to be kind to us during our short break that the sunrise & sunsets were just beautiful. We were privileged to watch seals from our window just feet away in the harbour every day of our stay, we were hoping for an odd sighting at best! There’s loads to do in the surrounding areas, or just relax and explore Pittenweem and it’s little hideaways. We can’t wait to go back but for longer next time."

Frances, November 2018

"brilliant holiday, plenty of walking on the fife coastal path."

Graham, October 2018

"Fabulous house in wonderful location. Being able to watch the fishing boats from the upstairs lounge window was fantastic. The house is equipped with everything you might need and is tastefully decorated in a seaside theme with a few quirky pieces.Lovely and clean and would definitely love to stay again."

Carol, September 2018

"Fabulous location. There is somthing satisfying to be able to see working fishing boats in the harbour."
