“Fantastic New Year”
Reviewed January 7, 2019 for a stay in December 2018

We had a fantastic stay in the Posthouse in Crail. Everything was thought of by the owners for a wonderful stay. There was a lovely welcome pack when we arrived and the cupboard with the essentials, and the fridge with some basics were very much appreciated. As we were there in winter it was a little chilly when we arrived but the heating was great and that was soon remedied. The situation of the Posthouse is really fantastic - it is right in the middle of the village, everything you need is on the door step. There is a Butcher, a Baker (no candlestick maker - although they do make crafts & candle holders in the wholefood shop and pottery.), a Pharmacist, a fruit & veg shop and a very well stocked Co-op. The fish & chip shop is very good too. The local hotels - the Golf Hotel and the East Neuk - serve really good food and are very welcoming for a family meal. We ate in both over the week and do so often when we visit Crail during the summer months. Everything was really lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our week, so much so our other family members have looked at the website for the Posthouse and they are thinking of booking it for themselves. We can't thank you enough for everything during our stay we had a really great time. We would love to come back!

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 8, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Beautiful house in the perfect location. We have stayed in all the villages along the Fife coastline over the years and can honestly say this is our favourite. Loved the study on the third floor. Beds are really comfortable and the house is equipped with everything you could possibly want. The welcome pack was delicous and very much appreciated.

Thanks very much Ruth. Appreciated. Naturally Crail is our favourite (I lived there many years ago so am somewhat biased!) but all the East Fife villages have their individual character which makes them all worth a visit (from Crail of course.....).

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed January 30, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

ours was a last minute birthday break with Ruby the dog. The PostHouse was an excellent choice with great communication from the owner.The house was spacious, very comfortable and tastefully decorated , with all mod cons, and a generous Welcome Pack.The shower alone would be a reason to return. The PostHouse is located in the centre of Crail, with easy access to beautiful coastal walks and a great local bus service . We would thoroughly recommend both Crail and in particular The PostHouse .

“Quiet weekend away...”
Reviewed November 26, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We arrived in Crail after an 11 hour journey from London. We found the house easily enough but at the time we arrived we wondered where to get bread milk and a cup of tea. Opening the front door and getting into the house we found all had been provided and it was much appreciated. The property is large, well kept and we felt at home immediately! The location is peaceful, close to the beach and close enough to St Andrews to just pop in for an afternoon.

Finding a nice property which is dog friendly is difficult as it is so this place really is perfect. The bath was also fantastic and he shower the most powerful I have had!

The village also has everything you could want, bakers, coop, tea rooms and a pub!

All in all a great weekend and worth the long journey just to get here and do nothing for 3 days.

Thanks again for having us and making us so welcome

“Bliss....”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

With family all over Fife and a beach loving dog, this place ticks all our boxes. This is our second stay having been in Oct 2016 in half term week. For us its homely, with lovely sofas, awesome top room shower, soft beds with great linen and a brilliant kitchen diner that we can entertain in as well. It feels, as we have said to the owners, like a home for us and we so looked forward to our return and it didn't disappoint second time round.

Crail itself I think is on the up, it was busy this bank holiday and the general area is seeing lots of great eateries open (try the Dreel Tavern) and the chippy below this house fed us admirably twice that week we were there with some of the best haddock I've had.

This a gem of a place, with fantastic helpful owners who make you welcome, including our beloved whippet, who knew exactly where she was and how to get to the harbour come walkies time... For us an unbeatable combo and we have already pencilled in our next visit.

“A gem of a property in Crail”
Reviewed August 14, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great house, beautifully dressed and well equipped with everything a family could need on the high street of this lovely village of Crail. Shops, two lovely pubs, cafes, fish shop and fresh lobster at the picturesque harbour, what more could a family want? There's also a beach; a putting green, a few coastal walks and a stones throw from St Andrew's. Perfect house, perfect location.

“The perfect spot from which to explore county Fife, far (but not too far) from the madding crowd.”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

What a great place to spend the week. The house was well equipped, the common living room kitchen is spacious as are two of the bedrooms, and the upstairs bath. Wi-fi worked well enough. The welcome basket with coffee and biscuits was much appreciated.

Yes you can buy postage stamps with your phone, but honestly everything digital could stop tomorrow and Crail wouldn't skip a beat. The green grocer, chemist, co-op, baker, butcher, post office, chip shop and pub are all within a stones throw of the Posthouse and each other.

We hated to leave.

Thanks very much Mark. And hadn't really thought about Crail not needing the digital age but you're right! We do hope you'll return!
