Kirkgate Cottage

Anstruther, Fife

Squirrel yourselves away in this cosy cottage for two near the busy working harbour, with wood-burner, beautiful bedroom and roll top bath


1 bed


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


A small traditional cottage in a quaint fishing village, a short walk from the bustling harbour. Stone steps take you from the higgledy-piggledy street up to the front door (entry is by key safe), a main hall and a sitting room, stylish and cosy with a wood-burner and two extra-wide, prettily striped armchairs. All mod cons are here, from iPod docks to laptop, DVD player and flat-screen TV. Cooks will be happy in the well-equipped kitchen – not huge but well planned, with a folding table and two chairs. Downstairs find a lovely big bedroom with a beamed ceiling, wall-mounted TV, low window and beautifully dressed bed; a roll top on a slate plinth here provides splashy fun for the uninhibited, while more modest souls will find a separate bathroom with a large walk-in shower (and a sound system!). The door to the courtyard is on this level and there are chairs to sit out on. Pittenweem has village shops and an art festival in August, you are on the Fife coastal path, and St Andrews, with its lovely long beach, is near. But this is a smart bolthole for two and you may just want to snuggle up and stay put.
