This property is not your usual holiday rental but clearly a well loved family home with all the extra's often missed when staying away. Comfortable beds, quality bedding, a luxury bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. A coal effect gas fire, and the extra addition of a bottle of bubbly cooling in the fridge and a basket of tasty treats all made us feel very welcome.
The Posthouse however, is built over three floors which may not suit those with mobility problems. It also has no outdoor space which may put some off. However, with the picturesque village of Crail on your doorstep, the beautiful East Neuk of Fife to explore and such friendly locals to while away the time with, that is hardly a problem.
I cannot fault this property or the owners David and Marysia and only hope that we will be able to return sometime very soon.
