There are a variety of places to stay in Crail, from hotels to caravan parks and holiday homes. 

Crail Harbourside House

An eighteenth century seaside house in one of the UK's most picturesque locations overlooking Crail harbour. All the bright rooms have been renovated to a high standard and enjoy harbour and beach views.

Take in the healthy sea air, stroll round the harbour before breakfast, amble along the Castle walk or through the old streets and wynds, or relax in the window seat viewing the harbour activity.

21 Shoregate

 Welcome to 21 Shoregate - a stylish 300 year-old fisherman's cottage 1 minute walk from Crail Harbour and beach. 21 Shoregate sleeps up to 4 people. The master bedroom has a super-king bed and four windows, two of them overlooking the sea. The second bedroom overlooks the picturesque stepped gables of Castle Terrace and has twin beds which convert to a comfy super-king bed on request. Open the windows at night and you'll hear the waves lapping on the shore as you drift off... Our little rose-scented back garden is totally secluded, perched above rooftops tumbling to the harbour - with wide open views to the Isle of May. Your well-behaved dog is welcome at 21 Shoregate.
