Beautiful cottage with all the amenities we needed(except the advertised BBQ) spotless and with fabulous views. We'll be back given the least excuse.

“a drop of heaven!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 for a stay in April 2012

This cottage is absolutely lovely. We haven't stayed there for a while but so hope to go back soon. The area is very special, and Kingask give you everything you need. We've stayed in it several times, it's always clean, pretty, warm and comfy. My only worry is one day it will no longer be available! It's true it's quite simple and fairly basic, but there are all the mod cons you could need, plus comfy clean furniture and a lovely open fire. A perfect idyllic getaway!

“Great location, budget rental but very good value.”

Stayed for 3 days after 7 days at another nearby holiday rental. It did what was described on the tin! Great views, very quiet, walking distance to Crail and the pubs, shops and local facilities. Once again all I can say is the best recommendation is whether I would stay there again, and yes I would, booking soon.

“Needs updating and a good clean”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The cottage was average, quite basic and old fashioned. The bathroom and kitchen really need updating. The cottage could also do with a good scrub. We were very lucky to have great weather so we didn't need to spend much time in the cottage. I'm afraid we would not stay here again.

“Cosy cottage in a charming part of Scotland”

Authentic fisherman's cottage in a quiet location. Property was well equipped and very clean. We needed a peaceful half term break and that's what we got. Crail itself was friendly and really quaint. Our group was a mixture of age groups and included 2 dogs, everyone enjoyed themselves. Already making plans to return to the area.
