“Homely and comfortable”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Puffin Hollow lives up to it's reviews. We found it quirky with all its nooks and crannies but extremely well thought out and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay immensely and it was the ideal place for exploring the East Neuk. We were fortunate to have lovely weather and the coastal walks to St Monans and Anstruther were most enjoyable, so much so that we did Anstruther twice, the second time carrying on to the lovely little harbour at Cellardyke. St Andrews was amazing and we also drove to Silversands at Aberdour, a beautiful beach and surrounding countryside, well worth the visit. Don't forget to pop in the ice cream shop in Pittenweem, so friendly and welcoming and the ice cream was good too. We would certainly recommend Puffin Hollow, a relaxing holiday with memories that will stay with us.

“Really attractively decorated, well equipped and yet very homely and cute place to stayl”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Location is excellent on the shore front at Pittenweem. Equipped with everything you need for a really comfortable home from home but with a little bit extra indulgence than most self catering. Puffin Hollow definitely has a cute factor too with character and the decoration and attractive arty bits and pieces around make it nice to spend time in. Liz was very friendly in her emails and seemed to want everyone to be happy with their stay. I stayed with my mum for 3 nights and found it an ideal base to visit St Andrews and the other coastal villages around which are all stunning. It was nice to see Pittenweem was still a working harbour too and was plenty going on each day with the fishermen coming and going. The fish and chip shop, cafes, bakers and stores meant you could find plenty to eat and wi fi was excellent in Puffin Hollow. Sometimes hard to park infront of the accom so might be more difficult in busy season but was not really a problem.

Hi Annie,
Brilliant review and greatly appreciated. It is very important to me that you get the best from your stay so I am glad that it all worked out for you. In general the parking is fine on the harbour and by evening it is empty. Please do come back for another visit.
Thank you's both so much
Liz

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This one bed roomed cottage was an ideal base for exploring the East Neuk and wider area. The arrangements for arrival were excellent and once booked there was a regular dialogue with Liz the owner. The cottage although one bed roomed was ideal for me, my wife and 8 year old. The space is brilliantly utilised and the sofa bed is huge with bedding provided. The owner has thought of everything and the cottage is very well equipped. We would love to go back and were very sad Puffin Cottage is that popular we could only book for 3 nights.

Myself and my family, 2adults, 2 children, had a wonderful week this Summer at Puffin Hollow. The accommodation had everything you could possibly want. It was clean, stylish and an obviously well loved property.Many thanks to Liz and family for a warm welcome. Comfortable beds, wifi,TV, board games ☺ The location is great for exploring the East Coast with plenty to do in Pittenweem itself. There is a great chippy where we enjoyed one of the best fish suppers in a long time. The local pub is literally 2 doors down and an ice cream shop a few doors from there. If you stay then visit St Fillan's cave, just £1 per adult, you collect the key from a local shop and return it when your finished (so trusting). We spent time in St Andrew''s where there is a Morrison's, much cheaper to get your groceries etc there, 20 minutes by car. If you don't want to cook then you can order from a great Chinese takeaway'Wok and Spice' at St. Monan's, just around £2 for delivery. The Secret Bunker was a great day out and we stopped by the local cheese farm where there is a great gift shop and some excellent onion marmalade! We would most certainly book again and highly recommend Puffin Hollow. ☺☺☺

“Total comfort and relaxation in Pittenweem”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

Puffin Hollow is full of surprises. It has a small,cosy feel yet is packed with every comfort and amenity you can think of (plus a few others you haven't considered). It is a building steeped in history yet the apartment is tastefully modernised without compromising any of its' original character. And like many adjacent villages along this part of the Fife coast, it is set amongst stunning traditional fishing village properties that have somehow escaped modern development. We had a fantastic weekend, walking along the coast and sampling the great food and hospitality along the way. Booking again for next year and staying longer this time!
