Host review score

The Crow's Nest (it's all in the name) is perched high, right at the top of Pittenweem overlooking this incredibly picturesque fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife. You can expect stylish, super comfy interiors in a characterful house which was formerly a sweetie shop and a pub way back in the day! Hidden down one of Pittenweem's enchanting Wynds, there are sea views, a peaceful tucked-away courtyard and an all-important stove! Seaside hideaway, ideal for couples, friends and/or families :)
