“Warm and welcoming home”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just returned from a week in the lovely coastal village of Pittenweem. From our bedroom in Easthaven we could watch the fishing boats returning to harbour in the morning with their catch and in the evening the lights of the East Lothian coast across the water kept us company. The house was perfect in every way, very clean and comfortable, quality furnishings, airy kitchen giving out onto wonderful sun trap garden overlooking the sea and welcoming, a real home. Despite rather mixed weather we enjoyed morning coffees and brunches in the garden, coastal walks both east and west, the handiness of the local fish and chip shop and indeed all the local businesses on the High St nearby as well as the chance to enjoy fresh fish bought straight from the boats and some of Fife's wonderful home grown produce from nearby farm shops. Would definitely like to return. My only hesitation in writing this review is it will make it even harder to do that!

“Perfect location - perfect accommodation”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were surprised how quiet it was inside this lovely old cottage. The address 'High Street' could give the impression that there may be traffic noise. Don't worry! The walls are so thick that, despite the many cars pulling up at the fantastic chip shop over the road, you don't hear a thing. Outside in the back garden you can just hear the sound of the fishing port maintenance. No traffic or noisy people to disturb the peace. The location is great for walks/runs along the coastal path and birdwatching. Also for a boat trip to the Isle of May. The cottage, as many have already commented, was extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. Everything worked, from the heating and hot water to the immaculate oven, hob and dishwasher. There was plenty of crockery, glassware, cutlery, pans, and dishes, coffee receptacles etc. No need to take your own coffee-making gear (which I did). Indeed, we have never stayed in a better appointed holiday cottage. Well done, Senga, for anticipating everything we might need. And more. The village doesn't have much in the way of food shops, but the village shop sells all essentials and there is a very good bakery over the road. And did I mention the chip shop? They sell papers and wonderful rolls on Sundays.

“The secret is out !!!!!! Reluctantly ..................”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I am posting this review with mixed feelings because our stay was so comfortable, so relaxing & just so enjoyable that I don't really want everybody else to know in case we can't book again.

Easthaven is a delightful little property & provided everything - I mean everything - that we needed. The crisp clean bedding, the overall appointment & the care & attention to detail was excellent. Our host checked we were happy & provided very useful information before & during our visit - the books & photos of the ' Easthaven ' history were wonderful to read.

The house is immediately adjacent to the old jail & church, round the corner from a beautiful alleyway to the busy harbour & a superb location to follow the Fife coast walk - in either direction - returning by the number 95 bus.

Pittenweem has several 'Arty' & 'Coffee & Bun' shops - oh !!! & home made chocolates.

We are back to St Andrews in April & will return to buy a picture from the gallery & a walk round the harbour.

If we can get in - now I've let the cat out of the bag - my daughter has 4 more years at the university & we will stay at Easthaven whenever we visit.

Can't give a better recommendation than that :)

Please don't tell anybody else about this !!

“Great holiday cottage”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Beautiful wee cottage. Great view. Great location. Great kitchen with all equipment. Comfortable livingroom with great photo book telling you a wee bit about Senga and her family. We have a wee 2 year old and the cottage was great for him. There is a travel cot a fitted sheet and lovely wee duvet for baby. Everything is spotless. Sheets. Linen. Kitchen. The view is totally breathtaking. We had wild weather and boy you could see white horses on the water at the Pier. You are right across from the Fish n Chip Shop. Fantastic fish supper. Senga was wonderful with us as we'd forgotten the code ..not once but twice. We are going again in the summer and would most definitely recommend. Great location. Pittenweem is a lovely wee village. Didn't manage the garden as weather very cold but looked lovely.

“We absolutely love Easthaven!”
Reviewed 17 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was our second stay at Easthaven Cottage, we came last year around the same time and fell in love with the place, The cottage is extremly comfortable and cosy, everything you'll ever need is there! I have already recommended the cottage to my friend who is now also returning for the second time. I would recommend this cottage to anybody who loves waking up to the view of the sea!
