Railway Crossing Cottage is a charming detached stone cottage, situated in a peaceful rural location in The East Neuk of Fife, close to the villages of Crail and Anstruther. The cottage was originally a crossing keeper’s cottage on the now disused Anstruther to St. Andrews Railway. It has recently been beautifully and sensitively restored and extended by us, providing a cosy and warm holiday retreat for you, your family and friends. A perfect place to relax and unwind.
There are 2 bedrooms at the property, a double room and a twin/double room, and a lovely characterful open plan sitting room and kitchen/dining area. The sitting area has a cosy log burner, wooden flooring and comfy leather sofas. The accommodation is very accessible, as it is all at ground floor level, with easy access to the garden via double patio doors.
There is a private hot tub on the decking area, with wonderful views to the surrounding countryside. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is secure and fully fenced. There is a second sun terrace for relaxed dining, with a wooden table and chairs, sun loungers, sun parasol and barbeque. We have ample parking for 2 cars at the front of the cottage. The property is pet friendly and has the added benefit of free wi-fi. EPC = D
Railway Crossing Cottage is a perfect location for exploring the quaint fishing villages of The East Neuk, the historic town of St. Andrews and the scenic coastline of Fife. The nearby villages of Crail and Anstruther are wonderful for exploring, with their picturesque fishing harbours, great shopping, pubs/restaurants and numerous tourist attractions. Boat trips from Anstruther to The Isle of May are most popular.
We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely cottage.

This cottage is perfect for a quiet getaway. The cottage itself was gorgeous and the owners had thought of everything you could need and more. It was so warm and cosy even in mid November. The bed was very comfortable and the hot tub was a great way to relax at the end of the day. Anstruther and Crail are lovely and only a short drive away they don't have a huge selection of shops but you could get everything you needed. I would love to return to this cottage and I would highly recommend it to friends and family.

This is our 6th time staying at Railway Crossing Cottage and we absolutely love it! The location is perfect, nice and remote so you get peace and quiet while out relaxing in hot tub. We take our dog with us every year and he absolutely loves the garden, which is all enclosed and an excellent size. Could not recommend this cottage enough!

A beautiful cottage in an equally beautiful location
By Bethany on 04-Nov-2019
Upon arrival after a long drive the cottage was welcoming and comfortable. It is situated perfectly for the Anstruther to Crail stretch of the Fife coastal walk as it is basically central to the two places. It is also only a short drive from St Andrews. It was ideal to use as a base to explore the local area and also for just staying in and relaxing. The hot tub was a joy, especially after long days filled with lots of walking! We hope that we can return one day as it was a lovely, relaxing week.

My wife and I really appreciated the quiet location and how well equipped the cottage was with switches, sockets and storage etc. Being able to charge our electric car was very much appreciated.
Fantastic Week in the East Neuk of Fife
By Faye on 06-Sep-2019
Fantastic Cottage in a superb location. The weather for our week was brilliant. We walked into Crail on the Fife Coastal walk, ate Lobster from the shell fish hut in the harbour, had a few drinks in the Golf Inn, were the hospitality was great and got the bus back to Railway Crossing Cottage where we relaxed it the hot tub, then had a few drinks. Sounds good, doesn't it, well trust me it was. We visited St Andrews, Kingsbarns Distillery, Anstruther Harbour where we ate the famous fish and chips. Theres lots do do and see. Will definitely be back.

Had a wonderful week at Railway Crossing Cottage. Loved everything, the cottage is beautiful, garden is fully enclosed and safe for dog with a great outlook over farmland. The hot tub was fantastic to enjoy the sunsets and star watch. It was really peaceful and private not overlooked at all. Very close to lovely villages with great beaches. Loved it so much, a return visit next year is a must.

Great Cottage, whole family including dogs just love our stays at this cottage. Location is great, you are close enough to amenities yet far enough out to enjoy the peace and quite. Would highly recommend.
Had a Great Time
By Liz on 18-Feb-2019
We stayed at the Railway Crossing Cottage for 4 nights and it was fabulous. All needs catered for. We had our 2 small dogs with us and they loved running about the garden. We did not need to contact the owners during our stay for anything as we had no issues whatsoever. Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a nice, quiet relaxing break.
New Year Break
By Alice on 11-Jan-2019
This is our 5th stay at Railway Crossing Cottage for the New Year break, and we have already booked to come back next year. It is without a doubt our favourite place to spend New Year. The cottage is beautiful and very homely, and the hot tub is fantastic. We bring our dog with us and he absolutely loves the garden, and the long walks at the beach which is only a short drive away.
