Holiday Rental House
Kirkview Cottage is located in the historic village of Upper Largo in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, 10 miles from the historic town of St Andrews famed for its golf and university. The cottage is a pet friendly (2 dogs are allowed free of charge) single storey bungalow which sleeps 4 in comfort. All rooms are on the same floor with no internal steps. There is a small enclosed mature garden to the rear which catches the sun on a nice day and is a great place to sit and relax. Kirkview has an open aspect overlooking Upper Largo's small village green and its historic church.

The cottage is a pet friendly (2 dogs are allowed free of charge) single storey bungalow which sleeps 4 in comfort. All rooms are on the same floor with no internal steps. There is a small enclosed mature garden to the rear which catches the sun on a nice day and is a great place to sit and relax. Kirkview has an open aspect overlooking Upper Largo's small village green and its historic church. Many walks radiate from Upper Largo including the challenging climb up Largo Law (the views are worth it) and access to the Fife coastal path is very close by. The property was upgraded in 2019 and is finished in a modern contemporary style and features all the equipment you will need for a comfortable holiday. Close by is the historic Largo House (now sadly a ruin) once occupied by Sir Andrew Wood, famed for seeing off English raiders in the Firth of Forth during the reign of James IV. Walk up the hill out of the village, past the school and cemetery and look back to the fields behind Largo House to see if you can trace the canal Sir Andrew built to allow him to sail to church on Sunday. The village of Upper Largo has the popular and hospitable Upper Largo Hotel, which serves great value meals at lunch and dinner 7 days a week, the hotel also has a small bar (which is dog friendly) if you only want a drink or a bar supper. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the cottage. Further afield the nearest supermarket is 3 miles away in Leven and there are a variety of eating places within easy striking distance ranging from the Michelin starred restaurants to the award winning fish and chip shops as well as multiple quality farm shops and markets. Simon and Becca look forward to welcoming you to Kirkview Cottage where we are sure you will have a wonderful stay. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: FI00017F

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great holiday at Kirkview Cottage
Just back from a great holiday at the cottage. Very clean and well furnished accommodation. Great welcome pack and information provided on the surrounding area. Good base for visiting the fishing villages and St Andrew’s. Safe and secure back garden for the dog. Weather not great while we were there but garden would be great to sit in, in the summer. Communication from Simon and Becca excellent before and during our stay. Would thoroughly recommend.

A comfortable wee gem in a wonderful location: you will want to return.
A very cosy and comfortable cottage in a great location. It is well equipped: there was nothing I needed that I couldn't find. The large garden is a bonus. Simon and Becca go to great lengths to ensure your stay is a fabulous experience. They communicate via email prior to your arrival with extensive details about travel, the cottage and surrounding area. They are always on hand should you need them. A generous welcome pack awaits you, and fresh flowers. The cottage is also dog-friendly. I also find the charge extremely reasonable. This is not the first of Simon and Becca's cottages I have stayed in, and it won't be the last. I give it full marks on all counts.

A great cottage in Upper Largo!
We had a great time staying in this cosy well equipped cottage. It was very clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The garden was very attractive too and well enclosed for our 2 dogs. It was in a good position for visiting East Neuk and also for visiting the local hotel, good food and dog friendly. Loved it!!

Lovely Cottage
A lovely cottage with a great secure garden for the dog, in Upper Largo. There are walks from the door and lots of villages in the area to explore by car. Cottage was clean and comfortable and the welcome basket was great. Our second visit and I expect we’ll be back.

Kirkview Cottage
Stayed for a week in September 2022. Well equipped cottage (we really loved the welcome pack) with a sheltered and secure back garden, ideal for our dog. Great base for visiting St Andrews and the Fife coast. We could walk from the cottage to the beach and Aurrie cafe in Lower Largo. The Upper Largo Hotel was a short walk away for meals and a drink, dog friendly in the bar. It was sunny and warm throughout our stay which made it even more relaxing!

Great pet friendly cottage
Kirkview is a lovely, comfortable and well appointed cottage, easy walks from the door locally or to the beach at Lower Largo. Good location for exploring the rest of Fife. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and made good use of the garden, the welcome pack was great.

Cottage in Scotland
We have just returned from a lovely week at the cottage. We found it adequately kitted out with all the amenities. It had a lovely garden to eat Al fresco. It was most welcome to have a bottle of wine and homemade cake waiting for us....such a lovely touch. Also having tea, coffee and a pt milk in the fridge. The village was delightful and shops close by. Would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a cosie retreat or a base for exploring. Thank you Simon & Becca.

Lovely holiday cottage
We had a lovely stay at Kirkview cottage .Quite strange as due to Covid all local pubs and restaurants had to shut early 6pm and did not serve alcohol but saying this our time in Upper Largo was not spoilt at all. The cottage has everything you will need garden was a bonus must be lovely in summer .Bedding and towels crisp and fresh all crockery and utensils were first class .Didn't use wood burner but thoughtful of owners to leave a full basket of wood .We also received a welcome pack homemade cake and jam wine and milk this was very welcome .The area around Upper Largo is fab a trip to Elie takes you on a coastal path passing through pretty little harbours St Monans Pittenweem and Anstruther . A short drive away is the home of golf St Andrews well worth a visit . Would like to thank Simon and Becca who in these trying times are staying open and keeping us safe large amount of sanitizer available and cottage super clean felt very safe can’t wait to return

Great cottage & location.
Had a super holiday, the cottage was really comfortable, clean and had everything needed for a nice week's holiday. Plenty of coastal walks from the cottage or if a drive out is your choice St. Andrews and Crail are two of many nice places to visit. We had our dog with us and found the area very dog friendly.
