About the property

Spacious one bedroom apartment with private patio : sleeps 2 : in Pittenweem

Cormora offers well equipped quality contemporary holiday accommodation in a traditional building. The apartment is all on one level and has stunning sea views including the Isle of May and Pittenweem Harbour. It is 50m from the picturesque harbour and next to the Fife Coastal Path with beaches, bar, restaurants and a golf course all within 500metres.

Cormora is beautifully decorated and provides a spacious lounge with dining area, a separate kitchen, a large double bedroom with built in wardrobe and a bathroom. There is a private patio with glazed screen revealing stunning sea views over the Firth of Forth, while on the foreground rocks groups of various seabirds gather at low tide.

Garden seats, a table and a BBQ are provided for those long warm summer evenings. Treat yourself to a relaxing glass of wine while taking in the amazing vista.

Pittenweem is a charming historic fishing village with a picturesque harbour area. The harbour is the most active of all the East Neuk fishing ports and is a lively and vibrant place at any time of day and any time of year. The fish market is conducted in the harbour sheds every morning and makes interesting viewing.

Around the harbour and all along the foreshore and beach area is the jumble of crow step gabled and pan tiled houses, many with quaint outside stairs.

The High Street is connected to the harbour and foreshore via intimate alleys and lanes, one of which passes St Fillans cave, the key for which is locally available. The High Street has a variety of shops, cafes and art galleries,

Pitenweem is famous for its Art Festival which takes place during the first week of August each year.

need. Spotlessly clean Fantastic Views. Walks into Anstruther and Ellie and beyond if you like. Can't think of any fault what's so ever.

Credit to the owners.

The property itself faltless

All was great but phone signal and WiFi non existant

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Sandy, its good that you liked Cormora. You will be aware from your previous stay that the phone signal is weaker in some areas of the flat than others, as noted in the guest information folder. I always check the Wi-Fi before the arrival of guests and it was fully functional on the day of your arrival. I noted following your departure that it was not. Is it possible that you disconnected the Wi-Fi extender? On restarting the hub the Wi-Fi was again functioning as normal. I would add that there has never been a problem with Wi-Fi reception before.

Me and my new wife stayed here for a 4 nights early October, the apartment is excellent throughout very clean modern decor with everything you need and more. The views from the patio were a fantastic extra. The village itself has a couple of places to eat/drink along with afew shops. Overall we had a lovely time and would return.

Lovely clean, home from home property with a beautiful sea view location

  • 5 of 5

Cormora was just as described and everything we hoped it would be. It was immaculately clean, nicely furnished and equipped with everything we could need. We enjoyed using the binoculars to watch the abundant bird life from the patio area. My husband loved reading the history of the Pittenweem witches and imagining how things were then back in time. Pittenweem is a charming, pretty little village, as were all the villages around. We loved walking the coastal path from Elie to St Andrews (not all at once) with fantastic views around every corner. Being an amateur photographer, I was amazed at all the beautiful views, whatever the weather, and took nearly 1000 photos! We enjoyed the local seafood which we bought at the harbourside in Pittenweem and even tried a lobster which we bought at Crail Harbour and local grown fruit & veg from the nearby farm shops. Highly recommended and the owner quickly dealt with a problem we had with the heating.

Owner's Response: Good to hear you enjoyed you stay, we like walking the coastal path as well. Some times the best photos are when the sea is rough. We are lucky that we have a very good electrician and heating engineer who come as quickly as possible should we have any problems.
