Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our 3rd visit to driftwood in 4 years! Like so many returning guests, we enjoy this cottage so much. Can recommend a visit to Scottish Fisheries museum in Anstruther. A special lunch was enjoyed at Seafood restaurant in St Monans (delicious food in a beautiful location).

Wonderful relaxed week spent at Driftwood. Unique house with fantastic views. Love the log-burning stove.

We spent a marvellous week in this cosy cottage. What an amazing view!! Here is where you really feel at home, away from home. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Only one thing left to say-we actually plan to come back next year.

Gorgeous, spacious cottage with the most fabulous views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a gorgeous "home from home" with amazing views! We loved having our coffee & croissants on the "sitooterie". A lovely part of the world. The Coastal Paths were great for walking & running. We loved visiting the neighbouring harbours & Elie Beach. St Andrews is very special. We loved playing on The Himalayas 18 hole putting course & West Sands Beach. Highly recommend!!!

Great house; great location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great week in the east neuk staying in this lovely house. Great sea views from all the windows and lots of lovely touches to make us feel really at home. Cellardyke is a great base for exploring all the lovely little villages in the east neuk and of course, an easy drive into St Andrews. Had a wonderful holiday in this gorgeous house and would love to think we will be back again.
