    Lovely cottage, great location, although getting the car in and out of the drive could be tricky, having a parking spot on Lower Largo is rare, so it was much appreciated. But it was all the personal details that set this cottage apart - a real Christmas tree!!

    This is a comfortable well appointed cottage in a very nice location. The welcome pack was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially when we found out our dog was welcome in the Crusoe Hotel bar.

    Superb setting for a peaceful break - for both of us and also for our dog. Really enjoy the comfort of the cottage and the attention to detail by the owners. Cardy Cottage is a real home-from-home and somewhere we enjoy returning to year-after-year. Delightful!

    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.
