Lily’s Cottage is a traditional built stone cottage (c. 1750) in the beautiful seaside village of Crail. It has recently been extensively refurbished to offer modern accommodation with traditional appeal. With two bedrooms, a cosy double and a large twin room, this quaint cottage can accommodate four guests. The impressive south facing garden to the rear of the cottage is secluded and has several seating areas to enjoy the sun all day long. The recently extended sun room which houses the lounge and dining area, opens out onto the garden and the attention to detail in design ensures it is flooded in light making it bright and welcoming. The modern bathroom and kitchen are well equipped and make the most of the traditional layout of the property.

A short stay but enjoyable stay in this surprisingly spacious cottage Well equipped kitchen and importantly for November an efficient heating system! Lovely garden and an easy walk to the harbour and a rather good chippy!

Lily's is such a beautiful quiet cottage in a wonderful location. Definitely a must place to get away from it all. Relaxing, peaceful and a lovely home from home. Secluded garden, quiet street, waking up to the smells and sounds of the sea. And no WiFi bliss to be able to switch off for a week. Enjoy the village and surrounding area and long walks along isolated beaches. Ideal for golf on some fantastic courses too if you get the chance. Would love to go back which says it all really.

Lily's Cottage was ideally situated for us, as we were participating in the annual festival held in Crail. The cottage is also in an ideal position to go to the beach at Roome Bay, and also for anyone wanting to do the coastal walk. The cottage itself retains a lot of character, but also has a fantastic extension, which serves as a lovely summer room looking out to the garden.

Very pleasant stay with my elderly Mum at Lily’s Cottage, all on level apart from couple of steps at front door and patio door so made it easy for her. The cottage itself is very well equipped and comfortable. The situation is perfect not far from beach and beautiful walks and a stones throw from shops and hotels. Parking is easy on quiet road in front of cottage and the only noise is the odd squawk from a seagull! Crail as usual is the perfect, beautiful holiday retreat!

The laid back lifestyle and gentle pace of life makes it a super choice for a relaxing and quiet stay by the sea. There is a range of cafes, bistros, bars, restaurants and fine dining restaurants throughout the East Neuk. There is a vibrant arts community with festivals and pop up galleries as well as a lively music scene. Local producers are stocked and celebrated by independent and artisan shops and local farmer and food & drinks markets.
