“70th birthday with family”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What a super birthday treat in a great location . House was great for 3couples and 2 children and 2 dogs. Secluded garden and plenty of room for the 3 cars. Quiet area but so near to the beach. Well equipped house. Lovely and warm. Lots of games books etc and plenty of information on places to visit and eat. A little more attention to cleanliness would have made it perfect. Would certainly return and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Thank you for your review and I am delighted that you had an enjoyable stay at Herring House. As per our telephone conversation, once again please accept my apologies for the shower head not being cleaned properly. I am glad this will not stop you from staying again and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

“Lots of character with modern convenience”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Good service with helpful responses to questions. The house was great. We had nice weather and loved the garden. The house is very close to the coastal path and we enjoyed walks with our dog to the next 2 villages. We saw a seal in the harbour and dolphin or whale in the sea. Nice places to visit.

“Excellent would go back again”
Reviewed 7 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed at House on the Rock with group of friends for birthday celebration. The property is amazing with everything you need and the views outstanding. Pittenweem is a lovely location and I will definitely be returning.

“Wonderful Family Holiday”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We booked Herring House for a stay over Thanksgiving with our extended family. Both of our children attended the near-by University of St Andrews so it made sense to spend Thanksgiving with them. The house is wonderful and the town is quiet in November. We were able to have a wonderful holiday together and the house had everything we needed. We were also able to enjoy the town's Christmas Tree lighting as an additional bonus.
