Silverlea is ideal for families, has everything you could need and well situated near the beach. Definitely not suitable for elderly or people with mobility problems due to the steep staircases to the bedrooms.

Cottage is litterally a stonesthrow from the beach in a quaint little fishing village ideally situated for visiting st Andrews, Dundee etc. The cottage is roomy, clean and all the beds are very comfortable. This was our second visit to lower largo but definitely not our last.

A beautifully modernised old Victorian terrace house that contains everything needed for a holiday. Those who can't walk any distance need to be aware that parking is almost impossible outside the house, but a free car park is about 150 yards away. In the evening there are usually plenty of places available. The village was not built to cater for tRead morehe Motor Age so great care is needed driving in the streets. It is a 20 mph zone throughout. Hide

The cottage was comfortable and ideally located for the beach and touring around Fife. Parking and garden not so good. Difficult to load and unload car - arriving and departing. While the car park, a few minutes walk away is available, it was too far for us to carry everything from there. We didn't actually use the garden as it was so steep.

Great location to explore the Fife Coast, spacious bedrooms and living room, ideal for young family.

I booked this because of the other reviews..... But I think they were for a different cottage. We didn't want to cook in the kitchen cooker very old extractor fan thick with grease and bulb gone leak under sink and very badly stained. I bought some bleach but smelled of damp. No mop so had to clean up dishwasher leak on my hands and knees.

One of the best equipped houses we have ever rented. No views except from the second floor bedroom but could walk to the beach in a couple of minutes. The stairs are fairly steep with shallow treads so care is needed especially, if, like me, you are elderly. Thankfully there is a downstairs bathroom with toilet. Everything was spotlessly clean, theRead more beds comfortable, no outside noises, efficient boiler to provide heating and plenty of hot water. Highly recommended Hide

Well suited for golfers, easy drive to many great Fife courses. When Dumbarnie Links opens, this cottage will be ideal.
