I just wanted you to know we had a lovely break at the Sail Loft. I thought, by way of helpful feedback, I might mention that I'm not sure the website really does it justice. It is advertised as having and "idyllic location" and "great sea views". This is, of course, true but the words used, perhaps, underplay the situation. The location of the Sail Loft is really spectacular, right next to the harbour with views in two directions across the Firth of Forth. I've stayed in many holiday lets over the years and the Sail Loft has to have the best location yet.

The quality of the accomodation was a very high standard, as well - very comfortable with all equipment and facilities. Also, surprisingly quiet and peaceful (bearing in mind the central location).

The Sail Loft feels like home and the sun shone for almost the entire fortnight AND team GB won shed loads of medals. As a bonus we bumped into Gordon Brown and family in Pittenweem. He was utterly charming even apologised for the weather (why??). Many thanks again. Aug '12

This was an amazing cosy time away from the exam stress. It is a beautiful town. The sun rising over the islands in the sea......that was spectacular. Thanks!!! We cannot wait to come back again and share more laughter and memories by the fire!. Homegroup Retreat, Dec ' 13

What a superb place! Both Sail Loft and St Monans. Fantastic break with amazing weather. Some of our highlights: Boat trip to Isle of May - £25 per adult worth every penny. 4hr trip with 2hrs on the island - saw hundreds of puffins flying around us. Coastal walks up to Pittenweem & Anstruther (3ish miles - lovely). Took bus to Lower Largo (£4 per adult single) and walked back 10 miles of lovely scenery worth every step, and lovely hot bath to soothe sore feet!. St Andrews gorgeous place to mooch around. Went searching for fresh lobster in Crail but the little fish cabin is open every day but Monday. We managed to buy one from a fishing boat here in St Monans. Delicious dinner/tea at the 19th Hole in Earlsferry - best pint of IPA! Fish & chips in Anstruther were pretty good too! Drinking champagne to toast our anniversary on the tiny harbour wall in the blustery wind!!. Lovely lunches and snacks at the Harbour Masters House in Dysart. All in all fantastic week - wonderful apartment, superb location and very friendly locals. Rob & Lindsey Lowe, Derbyshire, Aug '13

Another wonderful holiday in the Sail Loft - this time with glorious weather. We all lover the Pier smoke-house for delicious and casual lunches on the roof and the boys were delighted to be reacquainted with the infinitely interesting dolls-house. Mhairi, Mick, Luke & Nye, Aug ' 13

Fantastic week - loved the Sail Loft. We hope to be back! The Faulds Family, July '13

Second visit to the Sail Loft boys love it. Also like going exploring! Walks this year and weather has been great. Hope to come again next year. The Cannon Family, July '13

Our second year at the Sail Loft - an amazing week of weather. We had a really great time of beaches and relaxation. Thanks as always. The Campbell Family, June '13

Thanks again for our stay in the Sail Loft - as wonderful as ever. The weather was kind - 3 sunny days & 3 not so sunny but dry days! East Pier smoked salmon & crab salad highly recommended. The Macdonald-Ball Family, May '13

School friends re-united! A weekend of laughs, chat, food, wine, walks, shops and the comfort of The Sail Loft. Very comfortable and we love the decor. FARMS (Fiona, Alilie, Rhona, Mary & Sandra). May '13

Not a drop of rain and fantastic views with snow on East Lothian. Another wonderful holiday in the Sail Loft - thank you. Walks to Pittenweem & Anstruther; Crail for fish & chips at the Ship Inn and shopping in the farm shop; a day in St Andrews with lunch at Balgore Larder & west sands then the pier and cathedral in stunning late afternoon sun. Leaving blue sky & sunshine but hope to be back soon! Marjory & John, March '13

Thanks very much for the use of your gorgeous house. The weather was fantastic! Had to get Helen to light the fire as it turns off. I was totally hopeless without an electric fire-lighter....ha. Lovely escape from the city. Thanks again. Jamie, Nov '12

Fabulous fortnight - relaxed and rejuvenated. Lovely weather too! The Sail Loft feels like home and we don't want to leave.....Visited Pittenweem Arts Festival twice, the beach at Elie & St Andrews, Cupar Deer Park Centre & Cairnie Fruit and had a day in Edinburgh too. Fast train from Kirkcaldy and the tickets got the kids free entry into Camera Obscura (well worth it!). Despite both little ones having chicken pox while we were here, the had a ball. Great to see friends in Crail and Upper Largo. We'll be back if only to finish the books. July '12

Arrived on my 50th birthday and celebrated with (as always) a lovely Chinese/Thai takeaway. Weather was 50/50 but who cares! We walked, we read (one of us revised) and we all relaxed. The week went all too quickly, but the memories will last. Thanks very much. The Macdonald-Ball Family, June 2012

Lovely visit to relax after exams!! Did 3 x puzzles, read our books, did a few face masks and watched 3 x films!! V. relaxing and fantastic. Visited Crail which is beautiful and walked the coastal path to Anstruther - scenery v. dramatic. As always sail Loft you were just what we needed. Helen and Lucy, June 2021

What a gorgeous house - had a great stay - even got some good weather! We'll be back to this lovely wee corner of Fife. The Campbell Family, June '12

A perfect spot to recover from jet-lag and catch up with friends. I have always had a soft spot for the Fife coast - lovely to be back and I enjoyed this lovely home. We walked in the sun & rain and day trip to St Andrews. All too short. Marjory (Victoria, Canada), Apr 2012

Lunch time arrival, cold but sunny, walk at Crail & home to relax with Saturday papers. Anniversary treat - west end - delicious & memorable. Restaurant busy & service excellent. we wish it well for the season. Apr 2012

The missing remote!! Order was restored, and calmed reigned after Christina found the imaginatively hidden remote control for the TV!!!! We were able to watch the Scottish rugby team lose to Italy. What a wonderful place! Have never seen this part of the UK before. Bright sunshine, daffodils and coast. Thank you for such a lovely time - Christina (Australia), Mar 2012

Annual retreat...............cold, windy & wet! up to St Andrews on Sat am, then quiet afternoon. even at seafood restaurant, now re-named Craig Millar - excellent! Catherine M & Helen C, Mar 2012

Burns Night - Had a fabulous few days at The Sail Loft. What a gorgeous house - complete with everything. Enjoyed great walks on the beach, both in St Monans and Elie. Enjoyed St Monans church and the shops (especially the Cocoa Tree in Elie). Had a fabulously relaxed time, so peaceful and beautiful. Thank you Sail Loft - Helen & Lucy, Jan 2012

Lovely house, lots of sun, saw lots of boats, played on the swings, went to the windmill and had a really nice cuppa. Went to the beach. There was lots of wind. We loved it 'Thank you'. Amy, Katherine, Amy, Naomi, catriona, Chloe, Elizabeth, Jan 2012
