“Excellent Self Catering Accomodation”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in Caiplie House in May 2014. The house is situated in the High St of the picturesque village of Crail. On arrival we were met by the owners representative who showed us round the house and instructed us on using the facilities. The owners also phoned to greet us and told us a welcome pack of breakfast food was waiting at the local butcher just across the road. A much appreciated gesture, as the bacon etc was wonderful.

The house was as advertised - it was clean and had all modern facilities, a large kitchen and two public rooms. Beds were comfortable and each room had en suite bathrooms in which the showers were electric and in good condition. Each room also had a TV.

All in all, excellent accomodation for the price, in a lovely harbour village. I would have no problem recommending to friends and family and other Tripadvisor users.

“Perfect getaway for groups”

Caiplie house has 4 double bedrooms, 3 twin rooms, 2 great lounges, an industrial kitchen and dining room. It was a perfect configuration for us with 8 adults and 5 children from 2 years up to 11 years of age.
With one of the best butchers you'll ever visit (Penmans) just across the road and the fabulous Crail fish bar just along the road the food was a highlight of my weekend, but the kids loved playing in this big old house, then exploring Crail on their bikes - and what's not to love with a picturesque harbour, coastal path, rocky beaches and 2 swing parks.
Fortunately for the adults there is an abundance of art galleries with great coffee and cake available.
Just 12 miles from St. Andrews, with it's cool vibe, ruined monastery & castle and endless West beach, the location is stunning and perfect for exercising the kids.
I'd recommend Caiplie house to any similar groups in an instant.
If you've never been to the East Neuk of Fife, I'd recommend you remedy that soon, it's a fabulous place for families & friends for peaceful R&R.

“Great house for a family party”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Caiplie House in October ’13 – I think we may have been the first big group that rented the whole house. We had a large family party, plus several well-behaved dogs, staying for a long weekend and were very pleased with the facilities and the service from the owners of the house. All rooms were comfortable and well furnished, plus having 2 sitting rooms meant we could split into 2 groups to play games/watch TV/etc. The house’s central location is ideal, with plenty of parking and a short walk to the shops or harbour. I’ll happily go back again if we decide to do this again. Strongly recommended!!
