The Walton Family

Beautiful location. The coastal path has been well trodden! Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. We have dined like kings, been lucky in our crabbing from CrailHarbour and generally enjoyed the fresh air frolics! Easter 2017

Anne & Billy Mills

Delightful cottage, lovely location. Hope to visit again. August 2017

The Millars

Our third stay at The Gatehouse (we were here in October 2016 and October 2015). We love this cottage! It's cosy, comfortable and perfectly equipped. We've walked to Crail and Anstruther along the coastal path in beautiful Fife sunshine. A perfect, relaxing week away in beautiful surroundings. Thank you! October 2017

Audrey Walton

We had a wonderful holiday. The cottage was beautiful and being so close to the coastal path we hardly used the car. Will definitely return. Many thanks April 2017

The Gallacher Family

Can't believe it's been 5 years since visiting this lovely house. Very well equipped and the beds are comfy! We love the courtyard. Great sunny weather made our stay more enjoyable! Managed to walk some of the coastal paths and made our way around all the fishing villages. We will be back! Thank you. April 2017

Millar family

Yes - we loved The Gatehouse ! What a beautiful house and fabulous location. We were sorry to leave it. It suited our family perfectly (two boys in the blue room and two girls in the pink room). It was like home from home.( We even have the same "NO DAD DANCING " sign in our kitchen at home) Hopefully we'll return and stay for longer next time. We will happily recommend it to our friends. Please pass on our compliments to Mr & Mrs Elliot.

Our family had a very memorable holiday at The Gatehouse, Caiplie. The house and its facilities were excellent and we were fortunate to have extremely good weather over the long weekend.

Please pass on our appreciation to the owners, Mr and Mrs Elliott.

The Duncans, July 2011

Thank you for your hospitality, the Gatehouse has been great and we’ve had a fantastic week. Been on the beach 4 days out of 6 - really lucky with the weather and the boys age 2 and 10 months loved it. For toddlers recommend the Allanhill Fruit Farm nr St Andrews - great play area and farm animals and the strawberry tarts for the parents are fab. Also went to sensation at Dundee which Euan had a great time pressing loads of buttons! Ship Inn at Elie and Dolls House Restaurant in St Andrews both child friendly and great food. Hopefully will be back soon.
