Reviewer: Scuzbert 15 reviews from this member

We stayed here for 4 nights during the tail end of one of the tropical storms, so it was quite breezy and pretty rainy once or twice. That, however, did not impair the pleasure of our lovely view from our camper. What did impair our pleasure was the standard of cleanliness of the facilities. I honestly don't mind paying to use showers but I do expect a certain standard for my money. I also don't mind 'dated' or 'tired' facilities but I DO mind historically important gunge in evidence around the shower cubicle base. The write up for the site says the showers are heated - they were not. Yes, there were radiators in the shower rooms but the controls had been removed so there was no way to switch them on. They were also mucky-looking and rusty, not anywhere you'd want to put your towels, or anything else, for that matter. So reading someone's review mentioning the facilities having a high level of cleanliness led us to wonder if a/ the usual cleaner was on holiday or b/ had gone on strike.

On the plus side, the site is well laid out, well-kept, and has spacious pitches with water, electric and a grey water drain. All have a slight slope, nothing major. And as mentioned, all the pitches have great views. St. Andrews is about 20 mins drive away, and well worth a visit. Anstruthers is a lovely little fishing town with a fascinating Fisheries Museum, again, well worth a visit. Great fish and chip shop there, too.

If you are only interested in the standard of the actually pitch/site you will be happy enough with this one. If you think the cleanliness of the facilities matter as well, you may not be so happy. Oh, those grungy corners.

A quiet wee site, bit of road noise at times but mainly just the sheep and the cows to be heard. Tent pitches are very spacious with individual water tap and great views. Ours had a bit of a slope (in 2 directions) which affected our sleep to a degree, but other campers seemed ok. Would definitely return.

Great campsite, exceptionally clean facilities, friendly efficient service. Nice flat grassy pitches. Peaceful! Exceptional value for money with electric hookup included. Very good paid for wifi, handy for the wet days. We'll be back.

Great little site. There are beautifully neat and spacious hard standings for vans and a large field for tents with hook ups and water at each well spaced pitch. Pitches can slope slightly but not enough to worry about! Owners were very friendly and helped us by recommending the more sheltered pitches as it was fairly windy when we arrived. The views are lovely - out over Largo Bay and beyond. It is approx 2 miles down to the village and the beach. We took the car as we didn't fancy the walk back up! The bay has a long sweeping beach where we were able to let the dog happily run himself to a standstill. There is also a rougher area of the camping field where you can walk your dogs to quickly splash their paws. (You could even have your dog groomed while you are there as the owners have a dog grooming business!) Toilets and shower blocks were spotless and warm. No freezer facility but a wash-up area with loads of hot water and a hairdryer in the shower block. There are other good beaches further along the coast at Earlsferry and Elie and an exciting looking (?) chain walk that the fitter and braver than me can have a go at.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 65 reviews from this member

We stayed here 3 nights and were charged 12 for the 2 of us in a tent. The weather was good so we were able to pitch on a flat grassy area in front of the main site with fantastic views across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh. If windy, there were some more sheltered pitches and hard standings further back. Showers 1 but the cubicles plenty large enough for 2 to share. Only a few loos, but it was quiet. Strangely lacking in basins and mirrors?

Ideal for exploring Fife. Can recommend St Andrews (also Morrisons is here about 10 minutes) and the fishing village of Crail.

Excellent little site if the weather's kind

Lovely clean site. Plenty of space for each pitch. Spectacular views over the Firth of Forth. Short drive to sandy beaches. Close to many small villages and large towns.

Ladies toilet block nice and toasty. The men's, nice and cool. Shower cubicles 1 metre square 1 for 10 mins. They also have one very large cubicle suitable for a couple or for showering the kids/grandkids.

Definitely be back.
