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.

It is a wonderful cottage - spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed, amazing situation right on the Fife Coastal Path and within two minutes of the village center, and really well managed. Nothing was too much bother for Susan the manager, even when we called her on Sunday morning. Cannot recommend it strongly enough. Tips for other travellers May Isle ferry, chip... more
