Beautiful stay in St Andrews
Nice little farm 5 minutes outside St Andrews. Clean, neat and comfortable. We didn't spend a lot of time in the bnb as we were there for our daughter's graduation. Great base to explore southern central Scotland.
Beautiful location and immaculate property, very well equipped. Lovely garden well maintained. Only negative, the scary hidden exit onto the main road!!
All that you need
Has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Fantastic location, this was our third stay. Thank you.
Wonderful and spacious farmhouse apartment
Really lovely farmhouse apartment and so peaceful. Spotlessly clean. Very spacious. Approximately 10 mins drive to St Andrews and golf courses. Thank you very much Averil for the wine, cookies and milk. Would highly recommend this apartment and if revisiting the area will definitely stay again.
Many thanks for your kind review of our property and we are glad that you appreciated the comfortable facilities of our apartment and its peaceful location. We certainly enjoyed having you to stay and look forward to welcoming you again.
This place was perfect for us! It’s only about 4 miles from St Andrews. Plenty of space and Averil was so helpful with anything we needed! Would absolutely stay here again
Wonderful People and Place
We were moving my daughter into St. Andrews, so we needed easy access and space. We found so much more. The apartment is much larger than it appear in the photos.We had plenty of room, were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The owners, Averil and her husband, are lovely people who were available for our every need. We had a perfect garden outside our window, and a picture-perfect drive into town. We really enjoyed our stay.
