On the ground floor of Sandcastle Cottage you will find the living area: a living room with comfortable furniture, oak tables, TV and DVD player and a selection of books and games. There is a pebble and driftwood effect gas fire for chilly evenings, making the cottage a cosy place to visit no matter what the weather outside.
The living area continues with the open-plan kitchen dining room on the ground floor.
The kitchen/dining area has a big pine table to seat all the family and views towards the garden. The kitchen is modern, with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and plenty of kitchen equipment to suit enthusiastic home cooks. You’ll find ample supplies of crockery and cutlery. We like to entertain friends and family while we’re here, so you’ll find more than the average holiday cottage supplies.
We’ve also created a small seating area by the window in the dining room where you can listen to the radio or read newspapers or a book.
With quality food stores in the village only a few minutes walk from the cottage, you may be tempted by all the fresh local food to prepare meals in the kitchen. Fresh Crail Crab can be bought from the harbour and Green’s in the main street. Speciality breads can be bought or ordered from Barnett’s Bakery and there’s a wide range of cakes and pastries. The excellent Penman’s Butcher can supply all types of meat and poultry and has lots of of deli items too. Smoke Fired Whole Foods store has a wide range of coffees, teas and unusual ingredients for you to try. There are two small supermarkets in the village for all other essentials. Also Crail Pharmacy; The Beehive for ices, gifts and Post Office counter. Browse and buy in Crail Gallery and Crail Pottery, and stop for coffees at The Honeypot, Crail Harbour Gallery or Julias. If you don’t want to cook the Golf Hotel Crail, East Neuk Hotel and Balcomie Hotel are all ready to serve you and only a short walk away from Sandcastle Cottage.
Also on the ground floor is the family bathroom, with large bath and over-bath shower. Plenty of hot water as there’s a modern combi boiler, so everyone can have a bath after a long day on the beach!
