Crail, Fife, Scotland
Near Roome Bay beach - a fantastic rocky cove with children's play area, this cosy cottage offers easy access to the Fife Coastal Path. A large enclosed back garden with patio provides a secure area for children to play and for the whole family to relax. Owned by Sandy and Susan since 1992, the cottage has been gradually upgraded over the years and has a VisitScotland 4-star self-catering grading, renewed annually. Decorated in a relaxed 'seaside' style, the cottage has lovely touches which make it a perfect hideaway all year round. We offer short breaks all year except July & August with rentals starting on a Friday or a Monday for 3 or 4 night short breaks at other times.

Wonderful location with lots of space in the cottage especially kitchen and dining areas that worked really well.. Lovely big back garden to play and relax too. Highly recommend it.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your holiday in Crail, and hopefully we'll be able to welcome you and your family back another time. The Crail Festival is a popular time for our visitors as it takes place each year in the last 2 weeks of July, but there's always plenty to do in the area, no matter when you visit.

Our 2nd stay. Ideal for young grandchildren with the park, harbour, beach and rock pools. House is clean, spacious and is a home from home with everything you need. Can recommend the fish and chip shop for fresh and delicious take away. Also the pottery. All within walking distance of this lovely cottage. Couldn't believe how quiet it is here.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your lovely review and for giving our future guests some ideas of things to do when in residence. Hope it wasn't too chilly to get out and about on your February half-term break! You're welcome back any time.

From the very moment we walked through the door of Sandcastle Cottage, everything was quite simply, perfect. Helped by wonderul weather, the facilities, Crail itself, and all our other destinations, made our first trip really, really terrific. Cannot be more effusive about the cottage; location, the cleanliness, layout, comfort-factor, kitchen equipment......all really 100%! Only wish we could have stayed longer;...

Management response:

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We'd be delighted to welcome you back to Crail soon. Susan.
