Stunning house, beautiful location. Great facilities although all ensuite bathrooms, no main bathroom. The twin room in the loft has very low ceilings and no door just stairs going into it. The heating is quite slow to come on so it can be chilly. Great place to unwind though & would recommend.
7 of us shared this lovely house. Great position and location in the town. Plenty of parking and outside seating. Bedrooms were well decorated and even though were a bit on the small side each had a bathroom which made up for it. Good up to date fittings throughout and kitchen was well equipped
First visit to this part of Scotland and it far exceeded our expectations. Wonderful walks along the coastal paths with interesting villages and harbours. Within easy reach of St Andrews and lovely pubs and exceptional restaurants to enjoy in the locality. House on the Rock was in a perfect location, right on the edge of the sea and in the picturesque village of Pittenweem. Well decorated and furnished to a high standard with excellent facilities and well kitted our kitchen. We will certainly be making a return visit before too long.
My second visit to House on the Rock was as magical as the first, I just love this place. Pittenweem is an interesting and lovely town in itself and I can't believe there could be a better location when staying in Pittenweem than 'House on the Rock'. Being so close to the sea and when the tide is in you are surrounded by it ,makes this place so special, a sea lover and photographers delight. Location is A1 and standard of furniture and fittings also A1, would whole heartedly recommend House on the Rock.
We stayed at the 'House on the Rock' for 4 days in early October. It is literally THE house on the rock. Closer to the shoreline, where you can sit in the sunshine and watch nothing but the tide roll in over the rocks, you will not get. We had an absolutely superb stay in this wonderful, unique and high quality property.
Built on the rocks (literally) in c1745, the house is steeped in history, evidenced by the photograph hanging on the wall from a time gone by. But still today it is the property in Pittenweem which you simply have to experience for yourselves. A large upstairs family area with really comfy sofas where you can look out over the sea, a new and well equipped kitchen, 4 good sized bedrooms with en-suites/showers and a large dining area, all kept snugly warm by a log burner, makes for a totally relaxing stay for up to 8 people.
Pittenweem is a delightful town. Make sure you visit the harbour with its fleet of small and large working fishing boats and the town shops such as the art gallery. Plus of course the old world village pubs! There are some fantastic restaurants (Forgans in St Andrews, The Ship Inn in Elie and The Dreel Tavern in Anstruther to name but three), all a short walk or drive from the House on the Rock. We ate out on 3 nights and on each occasion the food was truly outstanding. Pittenweem is also well positioned if you want to play golf, as we did, at St Andrews or some of the nearby courses e.g. the Fairmount (Torrance and Kittocks). Crail is also well worth a visit, especially the Pottery. We spent time in St Andrews where there are a wide range of shops, museums and landmarks to be explored.
All in all, I can't speak highly enough of this property and I would strongly encourage anyone who is thinking of visiting this part of the Scotland to stay at 'The House on the Rock'. It would be a great base from which to travel to St Andrews for example.

Spent time here over the New Year break with friends. It's an absolute charming house in a spectacular location. Beautifully furnished and well laid out, this is an amazing spot. One to be strongly recommended and we will be back.
