“Ideal accommodation and location.”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

An excellent property in all respects. Proximity to the golf course a big plus for golfers. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Well located for places of interest around Fife. Owners very friendly and helpful.

“Perfect for a getaway for two!”
Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Just right for two, clean, private, very well equipped with proper tv, wifi and netflix thrown in.
Handy for golfers, the east neuk seaboard villages and St Andrews.
Could easily return!

“Ideal holiday retreat yet near to the picturesque coastal villages.”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The Doocot is a very well equipped wee place-- all neat and clean and nice-- set in a very quiet little corner of lovely gardens. We were welcomed with a basket of goodies-- essentials -- tea, coffee, a large loaf , croissants and 6 nice fresh eggs!!! There was also a bottle of wine awaiting our arrival.
The place was comfortable and extremely quiet. We really enjoyed our long weekend stay.
It was also a most convenient spot for us-- as we were visiting Pittenweem- for the Annual Art Festival-- and it was conveniently situated for this.

“Cozy Home away from Home”
Reviewed 27 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Had a wonderful 3 nights here, would have liked to stay longer but no availability. Extremely comfortable and welcoming, anda gracious host. Above and beyond extras such as a washing machine with all the accoutrements, fluffy bath towels and toiletries, fireplace in the living area and the bedroom. Most appreciated was the welcome kit - a bottle of South African wine, eggs, bread, tea, coffee and milk. The intimate patio area outside was a pleasant place to have a drink. Better than staying in a first class hotel and much cheaper. We would definitely stay there again. One minor complaint which takes absolutely nothing away from this wonderful place, as an avid coffee drinker would have loved to stroll out in the evening to a coffee bar, but as the accommodation is located in the country, we were a little removed from such amenities. If you are considering visiting this part of the country, definitely stay at the Doocot.
