Description

Bell Cottage is situated right in the heart of Pittenween, one of the most attractive traditional fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife. Original built in the 1800s, this traditional stone built, terraced fisherman’s cottage, with its red pantile roof, has been restored and furnished to a high standard by the owner and has a cosy wood-burning stove providing great comfort whatever the weather outside. Stroll to the working harbour, shops, bakery, cafés and fish & chip shop and explore the quaint wynds and lanes. There are many historic sites and cultural events throughout the year, including the Pittenween Arts Festival. This area has many wonderful sandy beaches to enjoy and coastal walks with the Fife Coastal Path passing through the village. This area is synonymous with golf; the cottage is only 9 miles from the ancient university town of St Andrews and its famous golf courses and many other local courses close by. This is the perfect location for all ages to enjoy this area and all it has to offer. After a day exploring, you relax in the summerhouse in the sunny garden with a glass of wine. Edinburgh, Stirling and Perth all within an hour’s drive. Beach 300 yards. Shop and restaurant 50 yards, pub 200 yards.

About the local area

Fife was home to Scotland's capital for six centuries, the evidence of which can still be found in its many castles, cathedrals and places of historic interest. Apart from its historical heritage Fife is also renowned for world class golf courses and lovely stretches of picturesque coastline.

Long sections of the Fife Coastal Path can now be enjoyed by walkers and there are a variety of linear and circular routes which have been graded and waymarked, from which you can enjoy beautiful seacapes and spot spectacular wildlife such as grey seals, dolphins and maybe even the odd basking shark. For bird lovers the offshore islands of Inchkeith and Inchcolm are home to thousands of seabirds, including large numbers of Puffins in May.

In the northeast the gentle rolling hills of the hinterland extend eastwards to windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches, where scenes from the film `Chariots of Fire' were filmed. South down the coast a short distance is the ancient university town of St. Andrews, home to the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club.

St. Andrews University was founded in 1410 and is Scotland's oldest university town. The medieval town centre has narrow alleys and cobbled streets which lead to the now ruined cathedral and the church of St. Regulus, which has a spiral staircase leading to the top of a 108-foot tower, offering magnificent views over the town. There are also two great beaches, botanical gardens and an aquarium here.

South of St. Andrews the picturesque small stone harbour fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Piteenween and St Monans are all places to experience the un-hurried pace of life by the sea. Further round the coast there are a number of first class golf courses such as Elie and Leven Links, to name only two of more than forty golf courses in this region!

Southern Fife is dominated by Dunfirmline, Scotland's former capital. The Forth Road and Rail Bridges over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh are the most distinctive landmarks on this stretch of coast and allow easy access to the capital for days out.
