“Perfect” We could never enjoy your stay more. The location is perfect, Steps from the harbour and shops. The Lobster Shack is just at the bottom of the hens walk. The views are even better than they appear to be online and I can still close my eyes in remember sitting in front of the window just admiring the view. The only problem was we couldn't stay longer because we are very sad to leave. And the beautiful artwork by Mrs. Walker will stay in my memory too. Definitely stay here when you're in Crail.
“Fabulous accommodation” Fantastic accommodation- clean, well equipped and great location! Lovely touches by owners- welcome basket and essentials on arrival including treats for our dog!! Near to local beach with fabulous beaches and lovely villages nearby. Will definitely be returning.

Perfect East Neuk Short Stay
Just back from an enjoyable 4 night stay here. The house is spacious and very well positioned to fully enjoy this historic seaside village, central yet quiet. The very large comfortable living room instantly felt like home, and each day started with a short stroll to the bakers, Barnett’s, to purchase artisan bread. The chilli loaf is amazing! Was very pleased to find an excellent whole food shop, Smoke Fired, very close. Also, a visit to the exceptionally well organised museum is a must, packed with absorbing stories and information - could spend most of a wet day there. Don’t miss the fossil trees and centipede trails near the harbour beach, quite mind blowing.
We were lucky enough to see a pod of 6 or so dolphins very close up on our trip to the Isle of May from Anstruther, as well as the expected many many puffins!
Finished with a shopping trip to the extensive pottery, and a quick dip from the sun trap harbour beach. Perfection!
Crail is a beautiful place, with atmospheric Fife Coastal Path walks both ways, and this house lets you make the most of it and come home with everything to hand. …
The Coach House Crail
Just returned from a 4 night stay with our two grandsons.
Firstly, Maureen (the owner) was a joy to deal with from our booking through to our return home. We were taken aback with the generous welcome pack she left for us, all of which was very quickly consumed.
We've stayed in a number of different places over the years and loving to cook whilst on holiday, I have to say this was the best fitted out kitchens I've encountered. Everything I needed was available, not only in the kitchen but elsewhere throughout the house (torches, tissues, binoculars, etc), very thoughtful touches.
All the rooms were spacious and the large lounge was nice and bright.
Conveniently situated for a stroll through the woods, park, beach, putting green or town and very quiet.
Local bus service seemed very reliable and well used by locals and tourists alike. …
Lily's Cottage- quaint retreat in a beautiful coastal village
Really Lovely Holiday Cottage in Crail
Lily's Cottage was ideally situated for us, as we were participating in the annual festival held in Crail. The cottage is also in an ideal position to go to the beach at Roome Bay, and also for anyone wanting to do the coastal walk.
The cottage itself retains a lot of character, but also has a fantastic extension, which serves as a lovely summer room looking out to the garden. …

Crail Harbour View -- Crail Fife Scotland
Very nice apartment in Crail.
The owners did all they could to ensure a nice stay.
We would certainly recommend it to anyone.
The only issue is eating out; driving to St Andrews is the best option, if you want a good restaurant. …
