21 Shoregate has been rented out by the family since April 2009. Susan and her housekeeper Karen both take great pride in the cottage and pull out all the stops to ensure guests feel it is their own seaside home during their stay. Works by various Scottish artists adorn the walls, and as Susan and her husband, Jason, use the cottage for their own holidays they have made sure that the furnishings, bedding and bed linen are of the highest quality. The kitchen is particularly well-stocked for a holiday cottage, with such extras as a coffee grinder, cafetieres, milk frother, salad spinner, hand blender, and microwave. Susan and Karen provide a welcome basket with a few simple groceries - coffee, tea, butter and milk, bread from Crail's own bakery, Scottish biscuits and jam etc, as well as a bottle of decent wine from Luvians in St Andrews, and there are always fresh flower - , when possible from the garden - to add that special touch.
