Also on our door step are some of the world's oldest and top rated golf courses including Crail Golfing Society, Kingbarns and The Old Course at St Andrews.

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.

Lovely house, lovely setting
Beautiful house with lovely furnishings, great deal of thought gone into colour schemes. Lounge in lovely position overlooking sea & harbour. Very close to lots of dog walking areas. Pretty little enclosed garden enjoyed by dogs & humans! Great food at local pub,just a short stroll away for Sunday lunch.Lounge could do with more coffee tables or one large one in centre of room.Kitchen could do with larger draining board.

Perfect location, view, family and pet friendly Harbour House
Harbour House in the perfect spot in Crail, their are sea views from many windows, the house is set out beautifully for a relaxing stay with a lovely kitchen and window seat with a sea view for that morning cuppa. A log burner in the living room, again with window seats and sea views and just has everything you need for the most idyllic and relaxing stay. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, good sizes and the towels and linen impeccable. The house was spotlessly clean, we can not recommend the property enough. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating and our little dog was welcomed too. Will definitely visit again soon Sherrie

Lovely House
We stayed here over new year, and very much enjoyed it. The house is in a great location overlooking the harbour with lovely views over the Firth of Forth . It is very well equipped, and is comfortable and cosy. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing stay.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location
We are just back from four days in Crail and stayed in Harbour house, having stayed in Crail many times this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in and the best location. The house itself was exceptionally clean and had everything we could have asked for. It was spacious on the inside and was very tastefully decorated, outside there is a lovely well kept garden. It was in an ideal location at the harbour and beach and a 5 min walk to the main street. Harbour house will be our first choice when booking in Crail.

Home from home
We were two families (4 adults and 3 under 3s in total) visiting Crail and we had such a great stay in Harbour House. The house was really well equipped with everything we needed and it was incredibly comfortable and warm (under floor heating was a delight after a paddle in the cold North sea!). Lynne was really excellent and responded quickly to all my queries before arrival. The views from the house are wonderful (we were exceptionally lucky with the weather!), We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend the house to other visitors to Crail.

Beautiful House, Beautiful Location
Family get together for my son's 40th. Couldn't have picked a better house in a better location. Perfect for the family. Very well kitted out, with everything you need for a care free break. Great location looking out to the harbour. Nice garden with barbecue, though we didn't get the weather to try it out.
