Property Description

If you’re looking for a stress-free holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city, then Castle Rock Cottage is the property for you: exchange the cacophony of city life for birdsong and the sound of the sea
and soak up the historic attractions and beautiful beaches in the East Neuk.
Castle Rock Cottage is situated in the heart of Crail, a picturesque fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife…think winding cobbled streets, a small harbour with creel boats, and quaint gabled houses.
This four-bedroom cottage sleeps up to seven guests, so it is the ideal size for family holidays with aunts, uncles, and grandparents. There are two bathrooms, so there won’t be a long
queue for the shower in the morning, and you won’t need to pack linen, high chairs, cots, or towels —they’re all provided. With all your loved ones gathered together, we’re sure that you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime.
There’s also a lovely, south-facing, enclosed garden — a great space for you and your kids to enjoy relaxed evening drinks and good food on the patio, which boasts outdoor chairs and a table. Outside the property, there’s also free parking.
The Crail Food Festival is a highlight of the village calendar, with a plethora of stalls, tastings, and talks. This is certainly an event to add to your diary if you’d describe yourself as a connoisseur of good food or enjoy delicious dishes! We’d also recommend heading to the Crail Harbour Gallery to peruse local artwork and enjoy a beverage and a slice of cake, as well as the Crail Pottery workshop if you’d like to purchase a piece of stoneware or earthenware to remember your holiday at Castle Rock Cottage.
Crail is just a short drive from Kingsbarns, St Andrews, and Elie, where there is a selection of beautiful beaches, perfect for family days out filled with sandcastle building, rock pooling, ice creams, and picnics.
Whilst in St Andrews, you could also soak up some culture and visit one of the museums in the town —there’s the Bell Pettigrew for budding biologists, the R&A World Golf Museum for fans of the ‘beautiful game’, and the Wardlaw Museum for those interested in the history of the university. Last but by no means least, there is a fantastic array of cafés and restaurants in the local area… check out our blog posts on quick lunches, hot chocolates, vegetarian cuisine, burgers, and pizzas for more information!

  • Cancellation policy

    Cancellations must be notified to and received by us in writing (preferably by email) and once received we will confirm and process your cancellation request.

    We offer Flexible Cancellation which removes the stress and worry of booking your holiday. You can cancel your booking and obtain a full refund of the lodging costs you have paid for up to ninety (90) days before the Holiday Commencement Date. For example, if your Holiday Commencement Date is a Saturday, then you can cancel as late as the prior Saturday. However, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible about your cancellation.

    If you cancel in less than 90 days of the Holiday Commencement Date then date, you may be due a partial refund from your booking:

    • Between 90 days – 30 days of the Holiday Commencement Date will refund 35% less of the total accommodation cost (the “Deposit”)
    • Less than 30 days of the Holiday Commencement Date no refund will be issued (100% of the holiday cost will be forfeited), as we will have incurred costs and are unlikely to be able to re-let our accommodation in such short period of time.

    For this reason, we strongly recommend you take out your own travel insurance for UK holidays which covers booking cancellations. This will give you the peace of mind that you will get your money back if you need to cancel your holiday at almost the last minute. If you choose not to, you accept responsibility for any loss you may incur due to your cancellation.
