About Diane Fraser

I had many happy years growing up by the sea in Pittenweem and very much wish we could spend more time there. Every time we visit we always say we must come back more often! My parents owned what used to be known as The VG licensed Grocers in the Market Place. I now live in Falkirk with my Husband Ross and two young children Ruari (7) & Alana (5). My Husband is a Funeral Director & I run a Beauty Salon from home, specialising in skin care treatments.

Diane Fraser purchased this house in 2007

Why Diane Fraser chose East Neuk of Fife

We went to Pittenweem for the first time in years to spend a day by the sea. We had no intentions of buying a property! As we passed the house for sale on our way to the harbour I mentioned how great it would be to have a house there! We all had an absolutely wonderful day, so much so that we decided to visit the Estate agents just to torture ourselves by looking at what we couldn't have! Well, the rest is history, we were at the right place at the right time and thankfully we managed to buy Tigh Na Mara! The house has had extensive work done and I think we have managed to create a very comfortable home from home enviroment.

What makes this house unique

Even though the house was extremely old fashioned and needed amounst other things a gas supply put in, lead pipes changed and walls knocked down. It had that wonderful comfortable homely feeling! Even being traumatised by the amount of work required, we just had to have it! The views are absolutely amazing and they are for ever changing. They can be enjoyed all year round, no matter what the weather. You can open up those doors and listen to the sounds of the sea while being sheltered from the wind. The house is also ideally situated, having a young family it is very important to us that the highlights of the coast are all within walking distance and we can visit other attractions with in a short drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Diane -

After we left Scotland we spent a week in France ...getting back to work is my poor excuse for not letting you know sooner how much we enjoyed staying at your property. We had a wonderful time!









The weather was stormy when we arrived; however, this only added to the breath taking view of the Sea.



I can't say enough about your hospitality. The apartment was comfortable, spacious, immaculate and beautifully appointed.. The special touches with Christmas tree and delicious chocolates made us feel very special. Your thoughtfulness was appreciated.









We hope you are feeling better. And thank you again, for being so accessible when we arrived without our entry instructions. You saved the day!!! My husband and two young adult children were not too pleased that I mistakenly brought incomplete instructions.









Take care,



Sheila

We were in the lower appartment. Great setting.

  • 3 out of 5
Great setting and potentially a lovely apartment for 2. However cold on arrival as boiler switched off in apartment above. No mobile reception and no wifi switched on so had to wander off to find a spot to contact owner. Property has been nicely done but is now showing signs of wear and tear and needs refreshing and a thorough clean and redecorating. Not enough towels, no black bin bags and no basics supplied eg loo cleaner. Very small fridge with broken freezer compartment. Facilities description on listing misleading and inaccurate eg clothes dryer - a small plastic hanger or outside line, fridge freezer already mentioned, no ironing board, not enough kitchen supplies eg no cheese grater. Owner responsive initially but clearly upset that we had complaints so didn't respond when we advised about the fridge being frozen up and dripping water on contents.
Couldn't recommend this lower apartment which is a pity without some changes as it is a great location.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to see your review although it was not a surprise, after your late evening in depth email in which I replied to before 9am the following Sunday morning. I accidentally didn't mention the freezer door as I had so many points to cover. How that transpires to you feeling justified in saying I didn't respond, I do not know? How I gave you the feeling I was upset is a mystery? How ever I do understand your partner being upset on arrival when he realised he did not have a signal on his phone to keep in touch with his frail Mother and the coldness certainly would not help but there being no phone signal is out with my control! As mentioned before myself and husband who are on different networks can both use our mobiles in the apartment. The boiler had been turned off by a guest as it had been sunny and as the patio doors are south facing the apartments get extremely warm even with winter sun! Again as explained in my original email, I only arrange for the heating to be on for guests arriving the start of October - the end of March! As far as I am aware the internet is switched on all the time, was it not the fact in which you mentioned in your initial email, that the password was not written where you expected it to be? Like the fact you were upset that the instruction about turning on the timer to work the cooker was not written in the handbook but in the email I send containing the house address? Which you obviously did not read properly as you also complained at having to get something from the fish and chip shop as the cooker did not work! Again as explained when we have guests staying for 2 weeks the housekeeper likes to hand in fresh towels and check everything is ok? She herself leaves a questionnaire to request feedback about cleanliness etc! So I am extremely shocked that you say it needs a good clean! If that was the case I would have thought you would mention that in your initial email? I agree that there may be some signs of wear and tear but nothing offensive and certainly nothing which I'm ashamed of! I take great pride in offering clean comfortable accommodation in which many guests have written about positively here and in the guest book! There not being any black bags was a complete oversight which we remedied by handing them in the next day! There is a table top ironing board and there should definitely be a cheese grater but now you've brought this too my attention the lost or broken kitchen utensils will be replaced immediately!

Amazing sea views from your armchair!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Tigh na mara is a wonderful apartment. We could have just looked out of the window all day. It was clean, comfy and well equipped. The location is excellent for people wanting to golf in the St Andrews area. Diane the owner was helpful when we had a problem. We had an amazing trip to see the puffins on the Isle of May and our best meal was The One Under St Andrews.

Gorgeous View-Wonderful Accommodation!

  • 5 out of 5
The view is truly magnificent-it could not disappoint!
We had an unbelievable week of brilliant weather-very lucky. Loads to do in and around Pittenweem-swimming,walking,golf,tennis...Great fish and chips in Anstruther and Pittenweem. Loved the Dreel in Anstruther and the Crusoe in Largo and The Doll's House in St Andrews for food drink and friendly service.

Fantastic Family Holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful family stay in Scotland and this house in Pittenweem was the perfect home base. We were able to travel all over Scotland but always return to this comfortable home away from home. It was very nice to be able to access Edinburgh without having to stay in the busy city. We enjoyed just checking out all of the quaint villages in Fife and found great restaurants in each one of them. The views from this house were fantastic!

Managed to get live lobsters, scallops and wonderful langoustine from the fish market 100 metres from the apartment - Heaven!

Room with a View

  • 4 out of 5
We had a lovely stay here. The views over the forth were stunning. Waking up in the morning to the sound of the waves started the day off well. The house is well equipped to meet your every need.There are a lot of nice walks in the area which our dog appreciated. We were both needing chill time and watching the fishing boats go in and out was most relaxing. We were lucky enough to see seals in the morning we left. The seagulls "fly past" every night was worth watching. We are so glad to be going back again in August. Oh for a lottery win.
