This is a hidden gem of a property located in a quintessential Scottish fishing village. The sea is literally on your doorstep. Beautifully appointed property, full of character with everything provided to guarantee a wonderful stay. Peaceful, serene, quaint, quirky and delightful. The East Neuk of Fife has so much to offer visitors and this is an ideal location to take advantage of this . Look out for the harbour seals and occasional views of pods of dolphins. Again, it's a gem !!
I was celebrating a very big birthday and friends were travelling to Scotland from a very long way away at New Year. I really wanted to share with them something worth travelling for and Westshore House turned out to be amazing. After a hectic Xmas I literally breathed a sigh of relief when I walked up to the front door. The house sits immediately on the shore of this tiny gorgeous fishing village. A terrace overlooks the sea with a table and chairs, then into the house which is just beautiful, and spacious with a huge kitchen, 2 sitting rooms and 5 bedrooms. The photos really don’t do the house justice. There was everything that you could possibly need in the kitchen, comfy beds, and a lovely and warm house. On Hogmanay, NYE, the village held a bonfire and fireworks on the tiny beach next to the house. Just perfect. Pittenweem is one of a string of beautiful fishing villages on the East Neuk of Fife. These can be walked to in both directions from the house on the Fife coastal path. Pittenweem is known to be an artists’ town and though small has a good selection of art galleries. It is also well placed to visit St Andrews: we also visited Kings Barns whisky distillery which was definitely worth a visit. I can’t recommend Westshore highly enough. Jackie and her family are so lucky to live there!
A group of us (6 adults) stayed at this beautiful place and had the entire house rented. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners on our arrival. Attention to detail in every room of the house was appreciated. Water, chocolates, cookies and treats were a nice surprise along with a binder of local recommendations. A well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and sitting areas. Lovely sitting area out back in the garden but our favourite place was right out front sitting watching the tide and enjoying the locals. Great walking trails and Pittenweem is a quaint friendly fishing village. We enjoyed daily walks, and easy access to nearby Villages and sites. This place felt like home in so many ways and I can’t wait to enjoy another stay at this Westshore location. I think a jewel in Pittenweem. I left a piece of my heart there and will be back.
Highly recommend this property. Haste ye back!
Had a great family visit at Westshore House, Pittenweem!
Perfect location. House comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen. Relaxing bathroom. We couldn’t ask for more from this rental!
I absolutely loved my stay here ! Attention to detail was incredible! A chilled bottle of fizz left in the kitchen, water, tissues, chocolates all left by my bedside. Beautiful view right beside the water and is steps away from the beach! The bed was very comfortable and had a lovely large bath to relax in at night. Highly recommend staying here and can’t wait to come back!
