Great little flat

  • 5 of 5

Great little super comfortable flat in the heart of a quaint little village. Walk over to the fabulous bakery in the morning for a treat with coffee then wander down to the harbour to buy a lobster from the fishing boats coming in or walk over to the butcher for a fine cut of meat--then off to one of the wonderful golf courses with in 10-12 miles of the village--does not get any bettor!----Dave and Cindy Mn.

Fabulous friendly stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a fabulous few days staying at the Old Surgery. Perfectly located to explore East Neuk and beyond, the accommodation exceeded expectations, kitted out with everything we needed for a family of 3 for a really comfortable stay- the beds were so comfy! Crail has everything you need including a wonderful butcher, gift shop, pub, bakery, deli and harbour teabrooms and also a late opening co-op on the doorstep. The Crail Pottery studio was a great find as my 6 year old loved watching the potters at work and the playground overlooking the beach was great for a last energy burn before bed. There are some great beaches within a short drive of Crail, Kingsbarns was probably our favourite and the walk from the beach to Cambo House was just the right length for us and with a fab cafe at Cambo or the toasty beach shack on the beach refuelling isn’t an issue! Elie also has a great beach and we ventured up to Tentsmiur just outside St Andrews which again was stunning and explored St Andrews before returning to the very welcoming Old Surgery. All in all a fabulous holiday and we will definitely be back! Thank you 😀

Excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic property for a short break with family ( 2 kids, 10 and 7). Location central and lovely to be able to pop out the front door to local shops/pub. Beach and harbour nearby too. Nice courtyard out the back which we were lucky enough to have the weather to utilise. Accommodation clean and beds comfy. Nice little touches like the welcome pack and little tea lights/board games. Would book again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Julie. I wish you had called me about the fire alarm as it was a very easy fix. It is a mains connected alarm but it appears the back up battery was removed and replaced the wrong way round. This causes the alarm to periodically beep which was probably quite annoying. When I turned up to clean I turned the battery round and it started working again. I will update our property information to let people know how to prevent this from happening in the future. I'm very glad you enjoyed your holiday otherwise and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
