First class.

We have just enjoyed a third holiday at this lovely cottage. It is so relaxing sitting with the French doors open looking out to sea. Hopefully we will return next year.

Good property well maintained. Pittenweem properties provide speedy help when needed. It's all booked out next summer :-(. Should have submitted some bad reviews :-)

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at South Gable and it felt like coming home, so lovely to be back...missed that view from the lounge! Another wonderful week in Pittenweem and the East Neuk of Fife! Cannot fault the property at all, thank you!

Great find and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed with the cottage, its location and the facilities provided. It was very comfortable and warm (once we had worked out the heating which is probably very straightforward but we found it a bit temperamental for the first two days (it was switched off at the boiler when we arrived and we were advised not to touch boiler controls so that threw us a bit). All else was fine and we would have no hesitation in returning to this property in Pittenweem which is a lovely working fishing village that has an interesting layout and all the usual shops/cafes etc.

Overall, South Gable was well appointed and a great rental price.

Great property for a family break in lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent week here with our three kids. Great property; comfortable, warm, and well equipped (probably the best equipped kitchen I've ever seen in a rental!). TV's been updated since the photos were taken too. Friendly welcome on arrival day. Pittenweem's a charming place and a great base from which to explore Fife. Thanks!
