As well as being a very well presented cottage, clean and really nicely decorated, it has more than everything you need with regards to cooking, linens, entertainment etc- all round excellent accomodation and so homely we didn’t want to leave!

10th comment: Cottage ticked all the boxes in relation to location, cleanliness, facilities and general equipment. April 2010.

11th Comment One of the best self-catering properties we have ever stayed in. The cottage was thoughtfully planned, very comfortably furnished and well decorated. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of chinaware and utensils. We were pleased to find lots of useful everyday food and washing items in the cupboards - saved the hassle of buying, only to have to cart 99% of goods back home. We will recommend Puffin Cottage to friends and hope to return there ourselves sometime soon. April 2010.

Mobile service was unavailable in the village but okay a mile away. Extremely handy to all types of golf courses including Kingsbarns and St. Andrews.

Parking was usually available in front of the cottage... would return anytime. Sept 2009.
