    Thoughtfully equipped for all family combinations, including a dog (not that I had one). Spacious and comfortable, just the place to recharge your batteries.

  • "It was great to arrive at the house and to be impressed by the size and quality of the accommodation."

    Excellent location overlooking the fishing boats in the harbour and close to all requisite amenities - shop, bars/restaurants, cafes and a self service petrol station. The Coast Path runs through the village and so good walks in both directions and St Andrews and Dundee not too far to travel as well as the East Neuk villages.

  • "I booked this property last year but due to Scottish Govt guidelines we couldn’t go as three households."

    I am delighted to say we got this year and it was so worth the wait. Right from the start of our holiday, liaising with Janice for the keys to reporting a slight fault. Everything was just perfect. Great comfortable accommodation and more importantly location. Maime’s vista overlooking Pittenween harbour was something very calming and good for your soul. My family and I could have stayed another week, we will definitely be back in the future.

  • "Lovely clean, very well equipped and comfortable house in an excellent harbourside location."

    As well as the fishermen coming and going we saw gannets, eiders, dolphins and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from the windows. The latter two are unlikely to be there again but the others will be. The people looking after the house were very helpful and friendly when we spoke to them.

  • "This is a superb property overlooking a working harbour."

    There is everything you need and the house was spotlessly clean. We visited whilst we were still in partial lockdown so many restaurants were still closed so the well equipped kitchen was very welcome. Pittemweem and the surrounding area is beautiful. We loved sitting in the kitchen watching the boats coming in and out whatever the weather. We will return.

  • "The cottage is amazing, so spacious and contains everything you could possibly need, the boot room on the ground floor with the washer and dryer was a godsend!"

    Everything was spotlessly clean and the bedding and towels smelt lovely and fresh. We’re already planning our next visit!

  • "House was well appointed and accommodation was good."

    Very comfortable. For some reason we thought that it had enclosed space to the rear which would have been useful for dog but we couldn’t see any access to this. Generally though the property was excellent and we had a great stay. Pittenweem was great and overlooking the working harbour was very interesting as well as picturesque. We would definitely recommend it.

  • "The house was super clean on our arrival showing clearly very good cleaners and efficient Management."

    We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and space of the house and would highly recommend booking. Please be aware that the fridge in the property is small for a house that sleeps 8 people, and limit your food shopping to two or three days at any one time. The beds are comfortable for those who feel the need to engage in "bedgate", modern and in good order as are the bathrooms. Go and enjoy !

    The house is great for two families, very clean and tidy, a great utility downstairs to put sand shoes and buckets. The children loved watching the fishing boats coming and going, we also explored the surrounding area up to St Andrews and down to Kirkcaldy and left places to visit next year.

  • "Description states that the cottage has an enclosed garden but this is not the case but it is somewhat compensated by the property having wonderful views of the harbour."

    Thank you for your review of Maimie's Harbourview. The views are just fabulous looking over the harbour and beyond. I have carefully looked over the description of the property and nowhere does it say there is an enclosed garden. Sorry that you were disappointed about that. We have 2 other properties that have the enclosed garden which is at the back of Maimie's Harbourview. Property Owner

About the location


Anstruther 1 mile; St Andrews 11 miles.

The village of Pittenweem is one of the busiest fishing ports along the East Neuk of Fife and, as such, is a popular attraction for tourists. There is a pub by the delightful harbour, which is surrounded by restored traditional buildings, all adding to its charm. The village name means ‘place of the cave’ and is believed to refer to the cave St Fillan used as a chapel in the 8th century, and where he is reputed to have prepared his sermons by the glow of his arm. The cave is open to the public and sits in Cove Wynd, in the village. The present day Church of Scotland, or The Kirk, sits on the site of the former Pittenweem Priory, an Augustinian Priory dating back to the Middle Ages. Today, the village is popular with tourists and hosts the Pittenweem Arts Festival each August, an event that has grown in size over the years. The East Neuk Festival is another arts festival that also encompasses many of the villages in the area. The village centre sits a few streets back from the shore and boasts a shop, bakers, a Post Office and a café, plus several bars and galleries. From Anstruther, one mile away, take a day trip out into the Firth of Forth and visit the Isle of May, a National Nature Reserve, or visit one of the other attractive coastal villages in this corner of Fife. With St Andrews and Edinburgh easily accessible, there is so much for the visitor to enjoy.
