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.

Spacious accommodation for extended family.
Great house over 3 floors. As we had our young grandchildren on the 3rd floor and we were on the first kept disturbance to a minimum. Very comfortable with all mod cons. Short walk to beach and fish and chip shop. Great play park nearby. Highly recommended.

Christmas break
We booked the cottage for three nights over Christmas so the family could be together - 7 of us. It’s a great space, roomy, comfortable and versatile. Fiona, the owner, was really welcoming and friendly. We had a great time.

Cenrally loacted,ideal for touring area, spacious.
Suited our needs perfectly, a friendly welcome on arrival, with milk and tea/coffee all in place - a hectic but fun weekend,clean, spacious and well equipped, with a quirky 70's twist, John Wayne and The Beatles!. We received a very warm welcome from the people of Anstruther. We even had a rota for the shower that went smoothly, after a hard day rowing.
