Sleeps 4 - Sanderling comprises a beautifully restored 3 storey townhouse in the heart of Pittenweem. It occupies one half of a larger property and the restoration of this house has been undertaken with sympathy with many original features retained whilst equipping it for modern living. Sanderling is laid out over 3 floors with sea views from the upper levels, it has been tastefully furnished and decorated to provide a genuine home from home. The house has a spacious kitchen diner on the ground floor, a large comfortable living room on the first floor, two double bedrooms - one with king size double and the other with zip and link which can be made up as either two single beds or a superking double bed, one large bathroom with shower and a separate WC on the ground floor. There is off street parking for one car and a lovely shared garden space with seating for al fresco dining. Sanderling would make a wonderful base from which to discover all that the East Neuk has to offer.
Tucked into a corner of the east coast of Scotland between St Andrews and Edinburgh, the East Neuk of Fife is one of Scotland's most beautiful regions. It has a character all its own, attracting artists by the thousands to its unique combination of history, sea, farmland and beaches, its picturesque fishing villages with their Dutch-style houses and its world famous golf courses. There is so much to do here for the whole family, from kayaking to horse riding, and yet there is great peace here too. In the summer, flowers line the hedgerows and the fields are rich with crops while fishing boats bob in the sea. It's a perfect place to relax, to eat well, and to recharge the batteries. Eight coastal villages comprise the East Neuk - each with its own special character.
Pittenweem - its name is Gaelic for 'place of the cave' - is a working fishing port, its busy harbour being the main landing point for the daily catch. It is a small village of some 1500 inhabitants, with a history not just of fishing and trading but of art too. In August over 100 artists exhibit at the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival and over 30 artists make their permanent home here. The village is blissfully situated, white houses with red pantiled roofs tumbling down to harbour and spreading up and beyond to the fields above. It is situated between Anstruther with its bustling harbour, the Fisheries Museum, supermarkets, various shops and renowned restaurants and the quieter village of St Monans, home to an excellent fish restaurant.
Pittenweem is a very well stocked village with a butchers, bakers, chemists, hairdresser, fish and chips shop (many think it's the best on the coast), the wonderful Cocoa Tree chocolate and teashop. This is a haven for art lovers, for foodies, and for those who simply want to enjoy the unique atmosphere of an historic village - you can still visit the cave that once housed a hermit and gave the village its name. This area is particularly attractive to golfers of course - there are some wonderful courses within half an hour: Anstruther (1 miles away, its club house provides an excellent lunch), Balcomie Links at Crail, Elie, Balbirnie Park, Kingsbarns, Scotscraig, Charleton, Lundin Links, Carnoustie where the 2018 Open will takeplace and of course there is St Andrews, just 15 minutes away and its historic courses.
