Beatiful and cosy cottage - a perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week over the Christmas holidays at South Gable and absolutely loved the house, the location (Pittenweem), the open plan layout (good for keeping an eye on the kids), the beautiful sunrise views over the sea and the very clear and quick replies from the owner on what the area has to offer!

If you are a keen golfer, St Andrews is a must see (only 20 min drive from Pittenweem) and I’d recommend doing the scenic drive via Crail to St Andrews. Also, if you are a whiskey enthusiast, I’d definitely recommend popping by Kingsbarns Distillery on route to St Andrews for a bit of whiskey tasting!

All in all – an excellent stay!

New Year in Pittenweem

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay over New Year. The house is beautiful and has everything you need for a perfect stay, will definitely be back. Just a small note for improvement, the entrance is at the back of the house and very dark, an outside light would be helpful, a torch is supplied but so dark we couldn't find it straight away, apart from that, a perfect stay.

Beautiful cottage...we didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a seven night stay at this beautiful cottage...,and we miss it already! This is a cut above the rest.....immaculate, lovely decor, great spacious layout, and everything you need and more....we were blown away with how perfect everything was, and the view from the little balcony.......stunning! A perfect base to explore fife and St. Andrews, and if you like water sports Elie beach is a must just 3 miles away. Lovely coastal walks to Anstruther and neighbouring villages, a 15 minute drive to St. Andrews, a truly beautiful part of the country. We fell in love with both the area and this beautiful house and can't wait to return!

Fantastic house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation, especially the open plan living space upstairs. Great layout and fantastic sea views from the gable end french window. Right on the coastal path and short walk to bustling Anstruther, great food and pubs here. Also fantastic little bar restaurant in Pittenweem harbour. Great area for walking and golf - we will be back soon. If I could I would give it 6 stars - outstanding!

Great location, great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

South Gable Cottage is a great place to take a holiday. The view is stunning, and the changing light on the sea means it's never the same view twice!

An ideal location for exploring Fife or just a good base for hanging out and relaxing. The cottage has comfortable seating and beds and a well-designed kitchen area.

We would have no hesitation recommending it to others.
