  • Looking to Largo Law

Cardy Cottage is a pet friendly grade C listed building located in the historic seaside village of Lower Largo in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, 10 miles from the historic town of St Andrews famed for its golf and university.

The holiday cottage is quite literally a stones throw from the beach and has open views across the Firth of Forth to the Lothians and Bass Rock. Fall asleep listening to the waves lapping the shore a few yards from the front door.

Lovingly restored and finished in a modern contemporary style this cosy and comfortable holiday cottage features everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. 

The village of Lower Largo is famed for being the birth place of Alexander Selkirk (the real Robinson Crusoe) and Cardy Cottage is situated a few yards from the Crusoe statue which marks the spot where Selkirk was born and spent his early years before embarking on his adventures.

The Fife Coastal path runs past Cardy Cottage, bring your walking boots and do as little or as much of the path as you want. The excellent local bus service means one way walks are a distinct possibility.

There is a small shop in the village selling basic essentials as well as the popular and hospitable Railway Inn, The Aurrie cafe and the recently reopened Crusoe Hotel and restaurant. The Upper Largo hotel is also a short walk away and serves great meals 7 days a week. The shop, cafe, restaurant and pub are within a 5 minute walk of the cottage with the Upper Largo Hotel a 15 minute walk.

Further afield the nearest supermarket is 3 miles away in Leven and there are a wide variety of eating places within easy striking distance, ranging from the Michelin starred Peat Inn to the award winning Cromars fish and chip shop in St Andrews as well as multiple quality farm shops.

Simon and Becca look forward to welcoming you to Cardy Cottage where we are sure you will have a wonderful stay.
