The house has high ceilings and traditional features. On the ground floor there is a spacious and well stocked bespoke kitchen (13'8' x 12'4')with dishwasher, microwave, gas hob and electric oven, fridge, freezer and a washer/dryer. There is a double bedroom (9'5' x 9'11') with original wooden shutters, and views onto the pretty courtyard garden. The ground floor also has a new shower room and toilet. The first floor has a welcoming lounge (17'3' x 15'8') with gas living flame fire in traditional surround. TV, Wifi, DVD player and Ipod dock. Two big comfy Italian leather sofas. The luxurious family bathroom (10' x 9'4') is situated on the middle floor with walk in shower and separate freestanding bath ... perfect for indulging yourself after long walks along the coastline! The top floor is home to the master bedroom (13'7' x 15'3') again with wonderful sea views. This room has a Superking bed which can also be two singles. The second top floor bedroom (13'8' x 11'6') has a Kingsize bed and one single. The accommodation is generous and comfortable for a maximum of 7 people. There is parking available either to the front of the house or nearby. Kittiwake house also has a pretty, private and sunny courtyard garden to the rear with outdoor seating and a small garden to the front. For guests who book when there is a full moon, we hope there is a clear night so you can watch the moon rising up and over the sea .... truly magical!

About the neighbourhood
To many Scots the East Neuk of Fife is a well known destination for seaside holidays, but for many people in the rest of the UK, the East Neuk is a hidden gem. The East Neuk occupies the north east corner of the Fife peninsula and encompasses a string of beautiful fishing villages which look South across the Firth of Forth and around to the North Sea. We have fascinating architecture, lovely old harbours, beautiful coastal walks, spectacular seas and 100% pure, clean, fresh air. We also have: • lovely countryside • interesting geology • wildlife including seabirds, seals and dolphins • neolithic sites, including standing stones, stone circles and a souterrain • a cliffside chain walk • lots of golf • great places to eat and drink • superb gardens at Kellie Castle - our local National Trus...
