We had a wonderful stay at May Isle Cottage, it’s set in a beautiful, quiet location and was perfect for our needs. The cottage was immaculately clean, warm and comfortable. The garden was great too and our dog loved it. Overall, a really lovely place to stay.

Great views

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at May Isle in Crail. My husband and I have been visiting Crail for many years and wish we found this beautiful cottage sooner. It felt very country-cottagey, just the way we like it!

Excellent location near the old course. The apartment was beautiful, very spacious, and staff was very friendly when I called them. I would recommend staying here.
