Located in West Wemyss, a charming conservation village on shores of the Forth, Driftwood Cottage sits on a sunny hill only a short stroll from the seafront and the old harbour. Driftwood Cottage offers ample accommodation for four persons and is well equipped with all you’ll need during your stay. There are two very comfortable bedrooms and a small enclosed garden to the rear, the property is pet friendly and is decorated with a Christmas theme during the festive season. West Wemyss is a traditional Fife coast village with harbour, creels and white-washed cottages. It is quaint and tiny but only minutes away from central Scotland’s major road and rail networks. The beautiful capital city of Edinburgh is less than an hour away, St. Andrews with its world famous golf courses a mere 40 minutes, and fishing is available nearby.
West Wemyss has a community pub less than 100 yards away that regularly hosts quizzes and social events (open Friday to Sunday) and a café, also 100 yards away, open Thursday to Saturday. The coastline is peaceful and a favourite walk is to head from the cottage on foot along the coast to Dysart, stopping at the Harbour Masters House for coffee and cake, then around the harbour and along the beach to Ravenscraig Park and Castle - great on your own or with a four legged friend. The guest book outlines many other walks and places to visit locally.
In 1985 the village became part of a designated conservation area, and over the years the harbour has been redeveloped for leisure craft, the old village restored and coastal defences improved. The village has quaint old buildings and narrow stepped lanes leading between the streets, and the church holds sunday services.
Driftwood Cottage is built in the style of the traditional Fife fisherman’s homes but was completed only recently, so it’s bright and modern inside offering the comfort and luxury you need to really unwind on your holiday. The owners are passionate about promoting the best of Scotland and are delighted to be able to offer you a flavour of this through their beautiful holiday home. With its white-washed walls, sash-and-case windows and red pan tiled roof, Driftwood Cottage really is as pretty as a picture. From the front of the house there are views of the Forth and the Bass Rock bird sanctuary, while the back looks onto quiet woodland. The house is immaculately presented and offers spacious welcoming accommodation for 4 people on 2 levels. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, and all beds have quality memory foam topped mattresses. The luxury kingsize bed room and a twin bedroom with 3ft beds both have Freeview TVs with DVD players. The bathroom is fresh and contemporary.
