I spent a week at Wild Harbour in January 2017 and was very cosy and comfortable there. The flat has been recently renovated and was welcoming, clean and well-equipped. Adrian was quick and efficient at answering any queries I had. It is perfectly situated to explore the charming coastal village of Pittenweem and the whole of the East Neuk of Fife, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
I'd recommend a visit to the Cocoa Tree in Pittenweem for delicious hot chocolate and the St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Company, a short drive away, does great lunches and local cheese. In Crail, Crail Pottery is worth a visit and there's the Smoke Fired Whole Foods Shop for vegetarian/vegan ingredients. A short walk from the flat along the coast path takes you to Anstruther where you'll find fish and chip shops, pubs and restaurants, including the Bank and the Boathouse. Beyond Anstruther, you'll find picturesque Cellardyke and walking West from Pittenweem, there's St Monans. You can always catch a bus back!
St Andrews has a great range of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, an old-style cinema, the university, golf and beaches. Hotel du Vin is lovely boutique hotel with a bistro and bar. The Doll's House is a nice restaurant. Aikman's is a couthy wee bar (great selection of beers) where 'town' and 'gown' clientele mix and there's live music. The Criterion is another classic pub and you'll find late-night DJs and dancing at the spacious and well-presented Vic, which also offers food, drink and board games.
Wild Harbour is ideally situated to avail yourself of all the delights the East Neuk has to offer. I used it as a writing retreat and could just walk down to the harbour or out onto the coastal path for fresh air and stunning views. I spent lots of time working and chilling out in the flat and would certainly re-visit in the future.
