“Top quality house. Relaxing, quiet location.”
Reviewed 15 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Having stayed at the owners St Andrews Coach Houses we were expecting this accommodation to be of equally high quality and we were not disappointed.

As usual the owner, Maggie, was really helpful providing a high-chair for our wee one and ensuring we had all the info on what was nearby and going on locally ahead of our stay. The property was easy to find and not too far from the other coastal villages but a good 20 minute or so drive to St Andrews.

The property itself is a traditional cottage that has been refurbished to a high standard with lovely bathrooms and a modern kitchen. Because it's an older building the rooms are big and airy and there are nice touches like window seats downstairs to look down to the harbour area etc.

As with Maggie's other properties everything is spotlessly clean and organised - there's none of the five different types of knife and fork rattling around a drawer (and a complete absence of a corkscrew for that bottle of wine) that you get in some self-catering accom! And we enjoyed slumping back in the reclining sofas with said wine after a long day out too!

Lower Largo itself is fairly quiet although the hotel seemed popular enough and the food there was pretty good with the staff being very helpful and friendly.

Overall we had a nice little family weekend away and would definitely recommend Bridgend House.

“A little bit of luxury by the seaside”
Reviewed 11 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Bridgend House is an immaculate property just a few yards from the beach in Lower Largo. It is an older property but has been thoroughly redecorated in a contemporary style. The rooms are spacious, particularly the kitchen/dining room and the master bedroom, and having 2 separate bathrooms is excellent for families.

The house is situated in Lower Largo in the East Neuk of Fife, one of the most picturesque parts of Scotland with lots of charming villages and the lovely St Andrews in its north eastern corner. There is a hotel and pub within yards of the front door, with more dining options within walking distance.

Overall a fantastic and highly recommended property

“Rugged beauty, laid-back luxury & leisurely lunches in Lower Largo retreat”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

A stunning and striking house in the quiet and picturesque coastal village of Lower Largo in Fife. The property has been renovated to the very highest standards, was clean, airy and homely with many thoughtful touches such as luxury toiletries provided for visitors, children's fishing nets for family rambles along the beach, lunch boxes for picnics, soft, fluffy towels, DVDs, games and a plethora of useful information on where to go for days out, meals etc.
Brigend House felt like a home-from-home the moment we walked through the front door. It was warm, cosy and inviting with great views over the harbour and across to the Firth of Forth.
Villagers were friendly and chatty and while Bridgend House has no internet access and mobile reception was sporadic, the nearby Crusoe Hotel was happy to allow us to piggy back on their wi-fi. Having said that, it was a real treat for a week not to be a slave to the laptop and mobile.
Lower Largo is within easy reach of the rest of East Neuk with its stunning sea views, long windswept beaches, hills and attractive coastal towns such as St Andrews, Anstruther, Pittenweem and Crail as well as Dundee.
Even in late October/early November there was plenty to do and when the weather turned foul we had a beautiful house to return to.
We can't recommend Bridgend House highly enough. Without doubt it is the best self catering home we have stayed in with an impressive attention to detail aimed at making your stay as pleasurable as possible. It's ideal for families, couples and friends - indeed anyone looking for a get-away-from-it-all retreat that doesn't skimp on the mod-cons.
My only quibble? We couldn't stay on for another week!

“Aged 6 to 90 - a great place to stay!”
Reviewed 9 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Bridgend House is beautifully appointed with every amenity you may require supplied to a very high standard.
The owners go out of their way to make sure you have a wealth of information before your visit to allow you to plan the stay to your best advantage. Maggie even phoned us during the weekend to make sure everything was ok - a high level of customer care that was much appreciated as our party ages ranged from our grandaughter at 6 to father at 90!
Lower Largo is a lovely clean, friendly village with surprisingly good local amenities.
Plenty of places to see and visit with excellent restaurants all around.

“A lovely house in a quiet and picturesque setting”
Reviewed 9 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We had a good week playing golf at several of the local courses. It was a pleasure to return to such a warm and comfortable house. We ate out some evenings at nearby Hotels and sometimes cooked for ourselves in the beautifully equipped kitchen. We wanted for nothing.
Lunches were purchased from Elie deli and the local farm shop provided everything we needed for evening meals. We would love to go back and experience it all again!

“A perfect holiday home for every age.”
Reviewed 12 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We all had a wonderful holiday in this very spacious luxury abode. Its in a beautiful part of Scotland with the perfect location of being nestled in beside the harbour. Wonderful to sit in the garden in the evening, sipping a glass of wine and taking in the beautiful seaside air. Bridgend house is an ideal holiday home for families and friends of all ages. Cant wait to go back soon!

“So fabulous I want to live here permanently!”
Reviewed 22 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Bridgend Cottage. From the minute we opened the front door we instantly relaxed. What a beautiful house! This is not like a holiday home - it's like walking into the home of your most stylish friend who has a great eye for detail and the knack of creating a homely atmosphere. It was truly lovely.

The views are lovely : I had been worried that we would be close to the road but the location was perfect. A very short walk and right on the beach.

Our children are 5 and 9 and, thanks to Maggie's book of recommended things to do, we found loads of things to keep them occupied. Even the variable Scottish weather didn't stop us from having a great time. We would particularly recommend Cairney Fruit Farm which was superb; Cluny Clays was also really good. To eat there are loads of great options, especially around St Andrews - The Glass House, The Doll's House and of course, Pizza Express are great for kids.

We packed the wellies in one box, flip flops in the other and we were on the beach whatever the weather.

Best of all though, was coming 'home' to Bridgend Cottage. It really was wonderful; we spent our second week in a lodge in Pitlochry which was practical and nice...but not a patch on Bridgend. We will DEFINITELY be back; so good I would like to move in permanently. :-)
