“Lovely cottage but a few tweaks required”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014
people found this review helpful

Booked The Cooperage for the September weekend 2014. I went with my partner Steven and baby son Dylan (8 months old). Lovely cottage. Easy to get to and find. Spotless and spacious downstairs and very comfortable. Lovely outside space and the bi-fold doors really are lovely and let loads of light in. There is NO wifi or mobile signal in this area which made it very difficult to phone or check anything on google ie booking for resturant in St Andrews or Phoning to find out how to switch on and use the heating in the property (there was no instructions unfortunately for the heating but there is instructions for everything else in the property). Upstairs the main bedroom is lovely .. bright..clean and comfortable with an en suite too (shower). The MAJOR setback is the fact that there is a clear glass window in the en suite and no blinds.. hence when getting in and out of the shower you give half of the road a swatch of your nakedness.. coming off the toilet is pretty awkward too... really needs either blinds or frosted glass. The main bedroom is the same .. absolutely NO curtains.. or blinds.. and there are three windows so you have absolutely no privacy. The second bedroom has two wooden cabin beds .. certainly ok for young children. Certainly not comfortable if you are an adult and again no curtains at the windows so no privacy in that bedroom either. The mattresses are stick thin and ok if you are a very light person but I am only 10st and found them very uncomfortable and banged my legs off the wood countless times unfortunately. Could really do with normal single beds and curtains/blinds at the windows. Apart from these tweaks the cottage is lovely. There is parking off road and it is in a lovely position just up from the harbour of Pittenweem. We would recommend this cottage to others but would recommend the owner address the privacy aspect in the ensuite and bedrooms upstairs. Great position for visiting al the lovely wee places on the East Coast ie Crail.. St Andrews etc.

Many thanks for your review, we are at present waiting on wifi being installed and there have been measurements taken for coverings for the windows, we were aware of these issues and had started getting something done about them unfortunately they were not done before your visit but hopefully you will visit us again to see the improvements.
