The Hideout, Lower Largo
Property Type Apartment
Change over Flexible
Short Breaks Available
Enchanting ground floor apartment paces from Largo's sandy beach, with steps up to outside seating area and summerhouse from which there are the most stunning and panoramic sea views. This is a perfect bolthole for couples (well behaved dog permitted too), and the interior is very stylishly presented with well equipped modern kitchen, bathroom with bath and overhead shower, double bedroom and comfy sitting room with log burner for cosy evenings in. There is a local pub and shop within walking distance of the apartment, and St Andrews The Home of Golf with its many boutique shops and great restaurants just a short 20 minute drive away.
Steps from the garden lead up to what the owners aptly call 'Base Camp' (quite a few steps but worth it!!). Here there is a large summerhouse with solar lighting and paved area where you can base yourselves during the day or evening and soak up the view (recliner seats and blankets supplied). There is also a gate from here that leads to a free car parking area, so ideal once you have dropped off your bags. The first lower part of the garden (shared) also has a washing line.
Lower Largo is the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk, whose real-life adventures were fictionalised by the novelist Daniel Defoe in his book Robinson Crusoe. There are plenty of great coastal walks on the doorstep with the opportunity to enjoy our local wildlife and - if you are lucky - spot dolphins and whales during the summer.
The apartment itself is all on one level - but access to the summerhouse area would not suit anyone with mobility issues - or very young toddlers.

Had a lovely time as always in Fife and great stay at The Hideout. Loved the christmas tree and thank you for the gifts underneath. We hope to be back!
Have had a great time. The Hideout is lovely & well equipped. Overall have had great weather which is good for exploring. henry has loved the beach and sea in Largo and surrounding area and will miss it!
This is a cosy little place perfect for a couple to explore the are from. It is even nicer in reality than it looks in the photos, sparkling clean and well equipped. Only a few minutes walk to the sea and coast path, and adequate shops.
