Lower Largo

Your perfect cottage hideaway on the Fife coast

Lower Largo - home to the Robinson Crusoe Retreat Cottages

The Robinson Crusoe Cottages are peacefully located in a quiet corner of Lower Largo, a picturesque East Neuk seaside village set within a few strides of the beach and the Fife Coastal Path, and just a short drive from Elie Holiday Park.

If you love getting away to coastal Fife and the East Neuk, you'll love the Robinson Crusoe Retreat Cottages in picturesque Lower Largo.

Ideal for couples or families, there's a choice of one or three bedroom cottages perfectly located within a few strides of the beach and the Fife Coastal Path and just a short drive from Elie Holiday Park. Dogs are welcome and there's free Wifi too.

The cottages are part of the delightful Crusoe Building, a B-listed property which lies on the original site of the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk - the original castaway that inspired Daniel Defoe to write the tales of Robinson Crusoe.

At bedtimes, keep with windows ajar and you can hear the tranquil sound of the waves lapping along the shoreline - magical.

Loved our stay at the Crusoe Retreat. The one bedroom property was really cosy but roomy too, we felt at home from the minute we arrived. There was a dog bed, bowls and treats left for Meg our black lab, also some poo bags and some nice treats for us too. The beach is gorgeous and practically on the door step. Meg loved her daily swim and romp on the beach.

Just back from a stay in 103 Robinson Crusoe Retreat which is great self catering accommodation in Lower Largo. Everything about the property exceeded my expectations. The bedrooms are not large but are well arranged and space is put to good use. The beds are very comfortable and the living and dining area is spacious and nicely furnished.The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we were provided with dishwasher tablets,washing powder, washing up liquid and dishcloths. The television was large and the wifi worked well. The small garden at the back was great to sit out in and the flowers were beautiful. The bonus was the welcome tray and the excellent service we received at the Elie Holiday Park.
