This place has the 'WOW' factor. Enjoyed watching the harbour activity from the windows and visiting the little coastal villages. Kellie Castle and tulips at Cambo were lovely. Rutter/Davis
The modern interior of the house is good. We have enjoyed walking around the harbour. We visited Kellie Castle and the cheese farm, St Andrews and more. The Cocoa Tree has good food and is very friendly. I enjoyed walking up to the windmill and we sat on the balcony one night and ate our fish & chips. Anya aged 12

Lynsey Graham June 2012
We had a lovely time at Admiralty House. The place certainly has the ’wow’ factor and was spacious for 6 people. We loved the harbour view from the windows and watching the fishermen working on their boats. Pittenweem and the other fishing villages were quaint and picturesque - a pleasant change from the modern housing estates. St Andrews was worth a visit too with its wide variety of shops. We especially liked Kellie Castle and the gardens at Cambo House. We had timed it just right for the tulips in full bloom. Thanks again for the fantastic accommodation - we will certainly book again with you when we holiday next time in Fife.
