About the location (Fife, Pittenweem)
Pittenweem has the only working harbour in the East Neuk of Fife. The property is steeped in fishing history, and even now you can buy fish and seafood on your doorstep. Watch the seals in the harbour with an icecream.
Take a short walk along the beach and you may be lucky enough to see dolphins and porpoise - or even a whale. Or enjoy a boat trip to the Isle of May (National Nature Reserve) - or even North Berwick across the water in East Lothian.
Located right on the Fife Coastal Path, and it's a gentle 40 minute walk to Anstruther to the east, or St Monans to the west. The annual Pittenweem Arts Festival (August) has drawn a community of artists and craftspeople to this historic village, with galleries and open studies. The sleepy high street has welcoming cafes, and there are two village pubs.
Anstruther, Elie and St Monans also provide a wide range of restaurants, pubs and cafes.
For golfers, Fife is the home of golf, with Anstruther course five minutes away, and another 45 courses a short drive - including the famous Old Course at St Andrews.
