    One of the best cottages that I have stayed at. Good value for money. Well positioned for the main sites in Fife. A visiting the Isle of May on a good day is a must.

    An excellent and very well equipped cottage in a perfect location. The welcome pack and the check by the owner to ensure all was OK were very nice touches.

    3rd time at the cottage. Usual high standard of accommodation, welcome treats as good as ever. Even the real Christmas tree in the living room made it a home from home. Will book again soon.

    Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. The cottage itself had everything you would need. Lovely beach village great for the dog. Great walks on the coastal path. Lots of places to visit just around just up the coast little seaside villages. Meals at the Upper Largo hotel fantastic and great service too. Would definately return to the area and the cottage. Very peacful and relaxing. Only slight issue was no gate on the property to be able to leave dog to wonder in and out of cottage. However, we knew about this prior to booking and it would not stop us booking again.

    Ideal location for exploring area and coastline. Gorgeous beaches and harbours. Near to St Andrews and Edinburgh for day trips. Cottage very well equipped and comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Just yards from the beach. Would definitely like to visit again. If suggestion could be made it would be to look at the table in the kitchen which is a little wobbly when fully expanded.
