Sunny Nook is ideally situated less than a minute's walk to the shore and just over a minute to the High Street - which has the village shop and Post Office, several cafes, art galleries, and the fish and chip shop.
Built in the 19th century Sunny Nook has been updated to 21st century standards with a modern kitchen and shower room, central heating, ample power points and WiFi, without losing any of its charm. It was totally refurbished in 2018 with a fresh, clean look and double glazed in 2020.

The space
Sunny Nook is a small, simply furnished apartment suitable for 1 or 2 people. As you enter the building there is a vestibule to hang coats and leave shoes and bags.

A glazed door leads into the main living area which has both south and east facing windows which flood the room with light. The dining table sits by the south facing window, overlooking the garden. Over by the east facing window there is a comfy armchair. Facing this is the large corner sofa - just right for putting your feet up and relaxing. There are a 40" TV (Freeview), DVD player and bluetooth rechargeable speaker. You will also find books, maps, DVD's (including The Winter Guest - shot mostly in Pittenweem) and tourist information. I provide a charging plug and cables for micro USB, USB C and Apple.

The kitchen area sits to one side of the living room. There is an oven, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, kettle, Nespresso coffee maker and toaster. Also the usual collection of crockery and glassware, utensils and cutlery etc. Dishwashing liquid, foil, bin liners, dishwashing cloths and tea towels are provided, along with salt, pepper, oil and sugar.

Off the living room is the bedroom. This cosy room has a double bed with a king size duvet, small wardrobe with drawer, 2 bedside tables and a full-length mirror. A hairdryer is provided. There are plantation shutters on the window. All bed-linen is provided. This room has 5 power points for your use.

Also off the living room is the rear hallway where you will find all the useful, boring stuff like an iron, ironing board and the recycling bins. I've also provided an insulated picnic basket, smaller insulated lunch bag and a bag containing a flask and 2 insulated lidded mugs. Access to the shower room is gained through this hall.

The shower room has a double-headed shower, toilet and basin with vanity unit. Hooks are provided for towels/clothing and you will also find a step-stool to sit on and for use around the property. Towels, mat and toilet rolls are provided along with 'Simple' hand soap. There is also a non-slip mat for use in the shower. Hot water is provided by a modern combi boiler.

The flat is small, but quirky. The walls and floors aren't straight... But this just adds to its charm.

Outside there is a shared courtyard garden with lawn, flower borders and a large paved area. In the outhouse you will find the washer/dryer and the garden table and chairs.

I aim to provide everything you need - and nothing you don't!

I provide a small welcome basket of bread, milk, coffee, tea etc. You will be asked for your preferences for this nearer the time of your visit.

If you're coming for a special occasion and want any extras (champagne, flowers etc) just let me know and I'll see what I can do. There will be an extra charge for this service.

Guest access
Sunny Nook is in a small courtyard garden off a Wynd. In theory this is shared by 4 flats, but you are unlikely to encounter anyone else as the other properties are holiday homes that are solely used by their owners and not let.

Once through the front door it's all yours!

Other things to note
There is no parking at the property. It is an old house in the oldest part of the village and what may originally have been a road is now just a path. This means there's absolutely no traffic noise. Free parking is readily available about 50 metres from the house.

Location

Pittenweem, Scotland, United Kingdom

Pittenweem is the central village of 5 East Neuk villages - Anstruther and Crail to the east, and St Monans and Elie to the west. The home of golf, St Andrews, is 10 miles away, Dundee 15, and Edinburgh is easily reached by car, bus or train in just over an hour.

Pittenweem is the sole surviving working fishing port in Fife. There is a fish market at the harbour Monday-Friday every week (if you're up very early!). The local catch is mainly crabs, prawns, lobsters and langoustines.

There are miles of great walking on your doorstep. The Fife Coastal path passes through Pittenweem and the newly opened Pilgrim's Way is close by.
