St. Andrews cottage description

St. Andrews Coach House provide luxury self catered accommodation combined with peace, privacy and seclusion close to St Andrews and all it has to offer.


When The Open Golf was in St Andrews in July 2010 we had Graeme McDowell (G.MAC) the 2010 US Open Golf Champion staying with us who commented on British TV what a great sleep he had and how he woke up to the sound of the birds chirping!

Beautifully situated in a lovely part of the country it is located just over two miles from St. Andrews which is famous all around the world for being the Home of Golf. St. Andrews also offers excellent shopping, art galleries, theatre and museums.

The cottage enjoys a bright and sunny aspect with its own private terrace with patio furniture so you can relax and appreciate the stunning views over the fields with cattle & sheep grazing there in the summer .The 'lovely Sophia' our horse also provides an added attraction to look at from the properties.

The Scotsman journalist Fiona Reid, who stayed with us wrote:- “Today the Coach Houses have been reborn as self catering holiday accommodation, with a focus on contemporary style and the kind of high spec extras you'd expect from the boutique hotel market. The cottage has modern lines - as seen in contemporary kitchens and bathrooms, with black granite worktops in the former and large profile tiling and power showers - and with all the extras you could hanker for, including flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations.”

The Coach Houses have been designed as luxury accommodation with 'super comfy beds' (according to most of our guests) Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy towels and leather sofas you can really relax in while the contemporary bath and shower rooms feature power showers.
For our guests comfort we also provide liquid soap, shampoo, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, a hair dryer, salt and pepper, T towels etc to save you any unnecessary packing. There is a courtesy tray with a selection of tea,coffee,milk and biscuits. We also put fresh milk and orange juice in the fridge and some other items in the welcome basket so that when you arrive you can put the kettle on and relax.

Each cottage has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large lounge/kitchen area.

The cottages have full electric heating and comprises bright entrance hall leading to a spacious living/dining area with vaulted ceiling, the living area has comfy leather sofas, Freeview TV, DVD and I Pod docking station, the dining area has patio doors which open onto your own private terrace with table and chairs, modern well equipped open plan kitchen with ceramic hob,oven,microwave,dishwasher and granite worktops, twin bedroom with large walk in wardrobe, hall and modern bathroom with large walk in power shower. Upstairs there is a spacious twin bedroom (which can be made up as a super king on request) walk in wardrobe, modern en suite bathroom with shower over the bath complete this amazing cottage.

When we had our Visit Scotland Grading we were awarded a top grade 4* rating by them.

We have a large Activity Barn for our guests use adjacent to the Coach Houses. This has been a huge success keeping guests and their children entertained for hours. It has a full size Pool table, table tennis table, basket ball net, climbing frame with slide and bark play area with bales to clamber on. Also there is a large lawn outside the properties and private off road parking.

We took inspiration for the contemporary style and finish of our Coach Houses from the Boutique style of hotel that we like to stay in and added lots of little extra touches to make our guests feel special. However we have deliberately kept some of the original features of the old building to maintain the unique character of the Coach Houses.

Relax on your own private patio and soak up the views

Above all else we wanted to make the Coach Houses an inviting place for you to relax and unwind in. The cottages are very comfortably furnished and each one has its own private patio with garden furniture so you can savour the peace and quiet and appreciate the stunning views over the fields with our horse, the cattle and sheep grazing there. Also sometimes a pheasant or partridge will meander past.

Bring friends, have a family reunion or ideal for wedding parties

Each holiday cottage has a spacious lounge, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and will sleep up to four people. The Eden can accommodate up to five people as a ”Z” bed can be provided if required at a small extra charge to include all linen and towels. Alternatively all 3 cottages can accommodate 12/13 guests which is ideal for a family reunion, wedding party or a group of friends wanting to get away from it all and relax.

A large supermarket is only a 5 minute drive from the property so you can stock up when you get here.

Please note during July and August we take full week bookings only running Saturday to Saturday.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: I have lived on the farm for the last 25 years with my husband John who was born in the house that we now live in. His family have farmed here for over 70 years.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Andrews:
                  We were looking at a successful way to diversify and felt that if we provided our guests with top class accommodation in a great location with friendly Scottish hospitality that we could give them a great experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The Coach House was originally the stables for the Clydesdale horses that worked on the farm in a bygone era prior to the introduction of the tractor. With the stunning outlook we decided that it would be ideal for converting into a luxury self catered holiday home. Within a short drive you are in St. Andrews where you will find the Championship Golf Courses, superb beaches, the historic St. Andrews University, the Castle, Cathedral and so much more. The charming streets of this medieval town and ancient architecture make the town unforgettable and no visit is complete without a stroll along The West Sands.
