“Lovely place from which to explore the area”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This was our second stay at Puffin Hollow and again everything was just to our need. This time we got very good weather to explore the area and take in some of the Fife Coastal walk. Puffin Hollow has everything you need for your stay, is very comfortable and very well equipped. For those days you don't want to cook, there is a great pub with fantastic seafood just around the corner. For those that love golf, you are spoilt for choice with so many good courses at hand.

We will certainly return for a third visit.

“Perfect holiday base”
Reviewed February 24, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Second visit for us at The Puffin and just as good as the first time. Very comfortable and modern, the cottage has everything you could possibly need for a self catering break. Plenty of room for four and a dog too. Spotlessly clean everywhere. Cannot wait to return.

Fantastic four days in Pittenweem, made all the better for our stay at Puffin Hollow. Lovely location, ideally situated for exploring "The Neuk." The flat has all the comforts of home, with Liz adding little touches; slippers and toiletries on our arrival.
Puffin Hollow is on the shore road and is a few minutes walk away from the beach and the coastal path. We were very fortunate with the weather and were able to walk along the coastal path to St Monans. However, if you want to spend time in Pittenweem there is plenty to see and do. The Cocoa Tree is a must for hot chocolate and crepes, a favourite with our daughter, and the art galleries are amazing.
Thank you Liz for letting us stay in your home.....we are already checking the calendar for our next trip to Puffin Hollow

“Christmas Getway”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Puffin Hollow is a a wonderful little cottage right next to the harbour. It was the perfect place to spend Christmas with evening harbour walks. The local village is very peaceful and full of history. Liz the owner of Puffin Hollow could not have been more helpful and a wonderful communicator. It is a very cosy little cottage and has just about everything you could ask for including beautifully folded towels, slippers and a small shower gel and conditioner in the bedroom. It is also very well heated.

Grant, what a lovely warm review about Puffin Hollow, thank you so much. It is very impotant to me that all guests get the best experience from their stay and it sounds as though you enjoyed your break over Christmas. As you have pointed out Puffin has a warm, cosy feel and perfect for a winter break. Please do visit again!

Reviewed December 11, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Spent a week at puffin hollow as a Christmas gift to our selves and to get asat from all the hussle and bussle before Christmas . The accommodation did not fail. It is beautifully presented and as all the facilities you require for self catering . Great base to stay in a beautiful part of the country . Fife coastal path is literally in your door step and the fishing village as a lovely welcoming feel x

“Great location”
Reviewed November 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Had two night stay. Great location and enjoyed all the harbour actvity. Local shops good and spent both days walking Five Coastal Path. Was lovely to return to cosy relaxing and spotlessly clean cottage. Its perfect for a short break and owners have thought about everything to make you comfortable. Perhaps one more armchair would be good as we struggled a bit when my son and his fiance popped through to visit. Would definitely recommend a stay.

Hi Doreen,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your lovely review. One of the many wonderful things about Pittenweem is the many cafes and craft shops it has to offer, along with the various galleries. Glad you found Puffin a relaxing retreat after a long walk on the coastal path. I take on board your comment about another armchair and will look at some options. There are 4 fold down dining chairs but obviously not as comfy as the sofa and rocker.
We would love you to return in the near future.

Marguerite, thank you for your lengthy detailed summary of The wonderful Pittenweem and Puffin Hollow. I am so pleased that overall you found Puffin provided you with an excellent, clean and comfortable base. The little barbecue picture was taking in Pittenweem at west Braes. This is a 5 minute walk on the coastal path from the front door. Pittenweem is a working harbour and you can still watch the fishing vessels at work coming home from sea with there catch. Fresh seafood is available in abundance from the stall in the summer months. Strange this is the first time in over 70 odd guests that have commented about the view from the property. I will however make this more clearer. Thank you for reviewing.
