No. 16 Westgate is a newly refurbished, and refurnished, quaint 'B listed' 18th Century fisherman's cottage located in the picturesque East Neuk village of Crail.

The cottage is located at the top of Hens Ladder, a stone pathway formally used by fisher wives, which leads directly down to Crail harbour and a sandy beach. Rock pools are found just beyond the beach. (It takes our bucket, and spade, equipped 9 year old, and 6 year old approximately two minutes to get to the beach from the back gate!)

Crail has all the local amenities you would expect to need, a friendly butcher, baker, chemist, corner shop, and traditional green grocer. Lobsters and crab can usually be purchased from the harbour. There are also various cafes, pubs, restaurants, and galleries all within walking distance.

"A great wee cottage literally a stone's throw from the harbour"

A really homely cottage with two bedrooms (one double, one 2 bunk bed). Lovely little terrace to rear can be a real sun trap when weather plays nicely. Easy to park on street (no restrictions) directly outside the cottage. Crail never gets too busy. At top if a flight if steps down to harbour. Owners clearly out a lot if care and thought into this property. Nothing hasn't been thought of. Highly recommend both Crail and no 16 Westgate.

"Lovely quiet seaside getaway"

We had a great relaxing week blowing away the London cobwebs , exploring Crail and the other characterful fishing villages of the East Neuk from 16 Westgate. The cottage is very comfortable and beautifully renovated, and has views out over the Forth to Berwick Law, the Bass Rock and Isle of May. Our boys (aged 14 and 11) loved being able to take the short , though steep, walk down to the beach, rocks and harbour, clambering about amongst the rock pools. when the weather closed in we enjoyed visits to the Crail Pottery, the Discovery in Dundee and the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther, and sampling the best fish and chips ever. The Fife coastal path is easily reached from the cottage and we had some good walks and saw a seal at close quarters.
The booking process was easy and the owners very helpful. Thanks for the bottle of wine and basic supplies on arrival. Also for returning the 2 items we left behind by mistake!
We would love to come back some time in warmer weather. We were glad of the central heating in the coldest April for years!
A great place to get away from it all.
