    This was our second time at Cardy Cottage and it was just as good as the first time . Very clean and comfortable and in a superb location. Lovely touches with fresh flowers and welcome package. We will definitely be booking a return visit

    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.

    Lovely wee cottage where you are made to feel at home. Can recommend Cardy Cottage for a relaxing break by the sea.

    Second time we've stayed in Cardy cottage and the stunning location and well-equipped facilities were just as compelling as the first time. We love the area - 14 visits in 12 years - and have never been disappointed.
