Pittenweem is a very special little Fife fishing village. With a working harbour, daily fishmarket and a long history in arts and crafts it oozes charm. It is the perfect place from which to explore the picturesque East Neuk – including St Andrews, Elie, St Monans, Anstruther and Crail. It’s easy to spend time exploring and browsing the galleries, antique and craft shops of Pittenweem. The highlight of the art year is the annual Pittenweem Arts Festival in August where upwards of 70 locations (from front rooms to garages) stage exhibitions of local artists and the village buzzes with visitors viewing the exhibitions and soaking up the great atmosphere.

Puffins’ Neuk is just a stone's throw from one of the most stunning parts of the Fife Coastal Path offering beautiful walks with views out to the Bass Rock and the Isle of May. It’s common to see heron, cormorant, and curlew – and in the summer boat trips run to see the puffins on the Isle of May. There are many golf courses, including those at St Andrews, all in easy reach and catering for all levels of golfer. Pittenweem and the East Neuk of Fife offer a great range of eating experiences from takeaways to pubs to fine dining. Whatever type of holiday you’re after – playing golf, exploring historic sites, cycling, great food, fishing, birdwatching, walking, browsing the ancient villages or, of course, family days on the beach – Puffins’ Neuk provides self catering accommodation of the highest standard only minutes from Pittenweem’s historic harbour. Lots to do on the doorstep and only a 15 minute drive to St Andrews and an hour to Edinburgh.
