“Great premises with special touches”
Reviewed 16 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Lovely well equipped cottage overlooking sea. Lots of nice touches, f'lowers, chocolates etc. Loved the slipper bath! The view from the lounge was spectacular and we were blessed with all week sunshine. Sea Salt cottage is within a short drive to several pretty seaside villages - Crail, Pittenweem etc where there is much to see and lovely tea rooms. We dined several times at The Haven pub which is a step or two from the cottage. Would love to return to Sea Salt cottage.

This must be my sixth trip now to one of these fab little cottages.
Janice ensures all is very warm and inviting with lovely attention to detail.
Salt Herring & Driftwood Cottage works its magic on us every time.
Next trip already booked.

“Amazingly relaxing!”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Driftwood Cottage is right next door to Salt Herrings and is effectively replicated internally and with amazing views in both with Salt additionally having full uninterrupted views from bedrooms whereas Driftwood has in part, uninterrupted views from bedrooms . It is also owned by the same family whom communicated effectively and efficiently.

After reaching the top of the wooden staircase you are captured completely by the breath taking panoramic view that makes you smile and smile every time you see it.

This is further complimented by the modern open plan living, dining and kitchen area which has the second best focal point of a wooden burning stove.

What more could you ask for to make for a fabulous and comfortable stay.

Location is great for walking and beaches.

Yes it is an upside down cottage to take advantage of those amazing views with utility room downstairs with washer and freezer/microwave but for holiday let's -it works!

The master bedroom has an ensuite with bath and no shower but not far away at all is the main shower room which is great.

I would absolutely recommend Driftwood and will definitely return in the near future.

“Fantastic accommodation and great location”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Really lovely accommodation in a beautiful location. Booked a 3-day stay and were delighted to find the Anstruther Harbour festival weekend was on, so plenty to see and do. The property is very comfortable and furnished to a high standard. Next time we'll stay longer!

“Top Notch”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We came for a weekend but ended up staying for a week which probably says it all!
The booking process was easy, with the owner responding instantly.
The directions to the cottage are very accurate, so it is straightforward to locate the property then park directly outside.
Spotlessly clean & immaculate with everything needed for a self catering holiday.
Just watching the sea from the windows is lovely.
Excellent location within easy stroll to village with many dining options.
Good location for walking the Fife coastal path.
We hope to return again soon.
