Relaxing - home from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Puffin Place. Steve and Linda are very welcoming and ensured we were comfortable and happy. We knew they were on hand if we needed anything and although they live upstairs we didn't feel like we were intruders. The accommodation is very well equipped and in a beautiful location for coastal walks, quaint fishing villages and harbours and the sandy beach at Elie. There are a couple of shops, a cafe and a takeaway in the village with other amenities just a short distance away. We fell in love with the East Neuk and hopefully will have the opportunity to stay at Puffin Place again.

Lovely stay at the Puffin Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights at the Puffin Place in September 2017 during our Scotland road trip! We enjoyed spending time in St Monans as well as visiting St Andrews during the day via car. Steve and Linda were great hosts, showing us around the apartment and making sure we had everything we needed. They included lots of ideas for adventures inside, the flat was cozy and we took advantage of the full kitchen!. We loved the Diving Gannet Cafe in St Monans for breakfast and also grabbed dinner in nearby Pittenweem. A very picturesque, quiet town and flat that made for a relaxing stay- we hope to someday return!

Feel so comfortable at Puffin Place .

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Puffin Place . Their can't be a nicer place to stay on the Fife coast . Perfectly situated on the coastal path . You can't help but settle into village life , with a little more going on in Elie and Anstruther if you prefer. We will be definitely going back for a third, fourth and fifth stay in the near future. Many thanks to our hosts . See you again soon James and Beth
