Victoria Cottage stands in the delightful quaint conservation village of Pittenweem in the heart of Fife’s beautiful and sought after East Neuk. The villages of Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail offer a good range of shops, services and amenities as well as some state of the art primary and secondary schools. Pittenweem’s annual arts festival is a very popular event. From Pittenweem there is easy access along the whole of the East Neuk from Elie to Crail while St. Andrews – the world “Home of Golf” - is less than a twenty minute drive to the north, with the ancient historic and cosmopolitan town offering an excellent range of facilities along with a highly regarded university. The popular county market town of Cupar is some fourteen miles to the north-west and the resurgent city of Dundee, with the new V & A museum which is due to open this year, within a forty-five minute drive to the north. Edinburgh is about an hour and twenty minutes to the south.
Surrounding Pittenweem is an area of outstandingly beautiful Fife countryside comprising a wonderful mix of fertile farmland, woodland, hill, stunning coastline and river. The area offers an array of wildlife and for the outdoor enthusiast provides a wide range of recreational pursuits including riding, cycling, walking, sailing and golf with many highly rated courses within easy reach including courses at Anstruther, Crail, Kingsbarns, St. Andrews Bay, Elie, Leven, Ladybank, Lundin Links and the numerous fine courses in and around St. Andrews where the Old Course regularly hosts the British Open – the next visit to St. Andrews is in 2021 for the event’s one hundred and fiftieth anniversary. Victoria Cottage is well placed for accessing the various pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk whilst in terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills are not far away along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties which include Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace.
