Overview

About the property

Stunning 1 Bedroom Cottage, Rolltop Bath In The Bedroom & A Walk In Shower Room.

Kirkgate Cottage is a pretty and quirky traditional fisherman's cottage that's been refurbished to create a beautiful, modern home. It's situated in the heart of the village of Pittenweem and a short stroll down through one of the many wynds will take you to the only working harbour in the East Neuk.

Kirkgate is modern and has a real contemporary feel about it blending beautifully with the traditional features of the cottage.

Curl up in one of the snugglers in front of the lovely wood burning stove with a good book, to watch the flat screen 32ins Sony TV with Freeview, one of the many DVD's or just to relax and listen to the iPod through the BOSE docking system.

Free WiFi and use of a Macbook for guests.

If you prefer to stay at home and cook up a storm there's a very well equipped modern kitchen to help you. With everything you'd expect from Le Crueset to Alessi and cookery books to a Panini sandwich grill.

Downstairs, the large bedroom has a solid ash double bed, crisp Egyptian cotton bedding, iPod dock, modern lighting and a wall mounted small TV. The roll top bath in the bedroom is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long walk.

Totally refurbished and ultra modern the shower room is spacious with a walk in shower. There is a selection of Molton Brown gels and lotions for your use.

You can choose from one of the packages of goodies we offer to make your stay more comfortable. From a local produce breakfast hamper, an essential firewood pack or Champagne/wine and nibbles. Please contact us for costs.

Outside to the front of the property, is a small paved area, where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Charges are inclusive of gas, electricity, linen, towels and kitchen & bathroom essentials.

A great week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this cottage. It's full of character and has been renovated and furnished immaculately and everything is of the best quality. It was also spotlessly clean so all in all it was like staying at a 5 star hotel. There’s always parking available on the street too. The location is ideal to explore the Fife area and Pittenweem is a lovely little fishing village. Cathy was very friendly and hospitable and communication was easy at all times.

Highly recommend a visit.

Very high quality holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Kirkgate Cottage for 3 nights over the new year holiday. We found the place to be very clean and comfortable with every requirement (and more) catered for. The house had a very homely atmosphere with the many nicknacks, ornaments and pictures which was typically Pittenweem. If there is one drawback it is parking close to the house but having been to Pittenweem many times we know this to be a problem throughout the village.

Cosy, home-from-home, cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a lovely little cottage, everything you could possibly want....the bath in the bedroom was a great addition and the huge shower, wonderful. Pittenweem itself is small but a visit to the Cocoa shop/cafe and the little pub in the harbour.. .a must. We loved Anstruther....the fish shop....incredible, best fish n chips I've eaten. Lovely little town.... loved it here and had a wonderful 3/4 days away. 😁

Car: recommended

A great base for golfing, walking, cycling, exploring the historic sites or just relaxing with a good book.

Several large and unspoilt sandy beaches are within easy reach and the Fife coastal path is virtually on the doorstep.

There's a great selection of restaurants and bars in the area and Anstruther, with its famous fish and chip shop, is only a mile away.

The lovely villages of Elie, Anstruther and Crail that make up the fabulous East Neuk are all on the doorstep and St Andrews which is great for culture, shopping, restaurants and bars is a 15-minute journey away.

The Magical Kingdom has many heritage sites for exploring.
