“Lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings.”
Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just returned from staying in this lovely cottage for four nights with my husband and two dogs. The cottage was spotless and the owners made a real effort to ensure all our needs were met! The complimentary wine was a welcome touch, and despite the weather not being great during our stay, the hot tub didn't disappoint! This is a great place to come and chill out in front of the log fire, and a good base to explore Fife, should you wish to get out of the hot tub!

“Great”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely place to stay, everything thought of by the owners. Will definately return and recommend to friends and family. The garden is perfect for our dogs, views great. Very peacefull location but near enough to venture out (by car) to Anstruther town and St Andrews.

“Peaceful and Secluded”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Very high quality cottage in a lovely remote location with views across fields in all directions. Deceptively spacious, light and airy. We loved the hot tub. Our first visit to Fife, an undiscovered gem. Beautiful coast paths to pretty fishing villages, accessible from the cottage. We hope to return very soon.

“Bliss!!”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We loved this cottage, everything was provided for a relaxing break. Clean and well laid out with lovely views, it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The hot tub was fantastic to ease aching muscles after a day of walking! If you're looking to literally 'get away from it all' but still be in easy driving distance of towns and cities, I can definitely recommend Railway Crossing Cottage.
