“East Neuk Heaven”
Reviewed 13 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Myself and my wife have just returned from a fabulous short break in 21 Shoregate.
The cottage is excellent in both decor and location, the east neuk is a special part of Scotland. Highly recommended for enjoying lovely walks, pubs and eateries all on your doorstep.
We will certainly return.
Many thanks Susan the cottage met all our requirements and more !!!!

“21 Shoregate”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have holidayed in Crail for the past 14 years .... And this place was a hidden gem. We've walked past so many times and having stayed here now, we're kicking ourselves!

Everything about 21 Shoregate shouts quality. Fixtures & fittings. Soft furnishings. Nick knacks, ornaments ... etc. all bring a homely welcoming feeling as soon as you step through the front door.

Nothing has been forgotten including a really thoughtful welcome basket. This fisherman's cottage is truly inviting. The bed is super comfy and like the cottage, cosy, warm and and clean. It's a little bit of beautifully decorated heaven.

Thx to Susan for arrangements, ensuring our visit added another Crail memory.

Read the rest of the reviews .... They all embody 21 Shoregate.

“Heaven Haven”

people found this review helpful

This was my third stay at 21 Shoregate and the first on my own. I needed some space to simply walk, write, read, and generally be, and this was the perfect location.

The beauty of this cottage is enough to keep you happily indoors from morning till night, but having the Fife Coastal Path on your doorstep and the beautiful St Andrews just 10 miles up the road mean that you have to venture outdoors as well.

21 Shoregate is one of my favourite places in the world and I long for a return.
