The Cottage

The Cottage gallery

The cottage is at the end of a row of seventeenth and eighteenth century houses, elevated above the lane which leads down to Crail harbour.  It is cosy, but we believe that small can be beautiful, especially with the ever changing Scottish weather. When the seas are wild, snuggling up to the wood-burning stove with a hot chocolate or something stronger is sheer bliss.  Nestled on the sofa, you can gaze through the back window to the garden and the sea under the cliff beyond.

In the living-room you will find a digital TV with DVD player, a CD player, and a Bose Sound Dock for an ipod or iphone  (works with both iphone 5 and 6). Broadband wifi is provided and the cottage has its own library of CDs, DVDs and books.

The living-room opens onto the dining area and kitchen, fully-equipped with dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, and microwave.  We take pride in our well-stocked kitchen with such extras as cafetière, milk frother and coffee grinder, and everything you need to indulge in some holiday baking. In the utility room you will also find such extras as picnic basket, reclining lounger, tray-table, and cushions and throws for the garden. There is a BBQ in the garden.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a super-king bed that overlooks the sea. The second bedroom overlooks the picturesque stepped gables of Castle Terrace. It has two full-size twin beds that convert to a second super-king bed on request. Open the windows at night and you’ll hear the waves on the shore as you drift off…  The bathroom has a deep P-shaped bath for soaking in a mass of bubbles and a state of the art Grohe Rainshower system.

There is a secluded small garden behind the cottage. At the bottom you will find a terrace perched above the rooftops overlooking the Firth of Forth and on to the Isle of May. Perfect for sea and star gazing….
