“Great”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely place to stay, everything thought of by the owners. Will definately return and recommend to friends and family. The garden is perfect for our dogs, views great. Very peacefull location but near enough to venture out (by car) to Anstruther town and St Andrews.

“Peaceful and Secluded”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Very high quality cottage in a lovely remote location with views across fields in all directions. Deceptively spacious, light and airy. We loved the hot tub. Our first visit to Fife, an undiscovered gem. Beautiful coast paths to pretty fishing villages, accessible from the cottage. We hope to return very soon.

“Bliss!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We loved this cottage, everything was provided for a relaxing break. Clean and well laid out with lovely views, it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The hot tub was fantastic to ease aching muscles after a day of walking! If you're looking to literally 'get away from it all' but still be in easy driving distance of towns and cities, I can definitely recommend Railway Crossing Cottage.

“Relaxing break”

This lovely cottage is located pretty much right in between Anstruther and Crail. Also very handy to get to St. Andrews as well- about 20 mins drive. It sits about 500m off the main coastal road. The cottage is lovely and very well appointed- everything you need is provided. We were very comfortable throughout our stay. We really enjoyed the hot tub and spent a few happy hours under the stars. Having seen the hotels and B&Bs in the vicinity, we are delighted with out decision to stay here. Definitely recommended.

Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, everything so fresh. Lots of extras..with welcome fire ready to light. Spacious yet cosy.
Brilliant location so close to Crail and Anstruther yet seems in the middle of nowhere!
Really enjoyed our stay and the hot tub was just wonderful.
thank you very much.

“Perfect holiday cottage for our family and exactly as described”

This cottage had everything and more for us- 2 adults, a teenager and a 4 year old. The garden is fully enclosed, there is no-one and nothing to disturb you. The kitchen has all the basics and the luxury of a dishwasher. The cottage is warm and comfortable, it is clean and exactly as the owners describe. This is the first accommodation I have ever stayed in where the description and reality are the same. The youngest enjoyed it so much he was inconsolable for an hour after leaving. The hot tub is wonderful and a real asset.
The whole booking process was well managed, the communication throughout the process was excellent and I would recommend this cottage and these owners to anyone.
