Reviewed 23 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Had a wonderful stay, only wish it was longer. House is very well equipped and comfortable. A real home away from home. Will be staying here again.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The Property is positioned in a fishing village on the Coast that we call the Scottish Cornwall.
It is a typical terraced house but has been fitted out both to retain its character and with all modern facilities ( except smart but it does have WIFI ).It has a coal fire which we didn't have to use because we caught Scotland's Indian summer and a washing machine/tumbler dryer made it the perfect home from home. Thank you to our local manager and the Owner for a good stay while we visited our relatives and the sights of Fife.

Clean, well maintained and comfortably furnished cottage in very pretty location.
Electricity, heating and spotless bedding and towels all provided. Also nice little welcoming touches like fresh milk and cakes left for your arrival with a friendly note from the local lady who looks after the property.
Very poor mobile reception in the area but free wifi lets you keep in touch with the outside world or not if you prefer.
Perfect for a chill out break.

“A comfortable property in an excellent location with many advantages .”
Reviewed 5 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Periwinkle cottage is warm, comfortable and well equipped with a secure garden which opens on to a common . This is an ideal property for dog owning visitors. You can completely relax because dogs are secure at all times and there are excellent walks from the door. Library and shop within walking distance, lovely places to visit and a local lady who not only supplies fresh bedding but bakes great cakes. What more could you want?

“Superb Stay”
Reviewed 21 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We had a lovely new year weekend at Periwinkle. The cottage was well furnished, spotless and had everything we needed. The coal fire was a great bonus, nice and cosy. Enclosed back garden for the dog and great walks. Nice touch of home baking on arrival. Hope to return
