Fishermans Flat - Beautiful River View - Great for Golf at Carnoustie St Andrews

Bedrooms 3
Property type apartment


About the property

The Fishermans Flat is a lovely 3 bedroom apartment and attic conversion in the heart of Broughty Ferry, with Beautiful River Views and only a few steps from the Beach.

Ideal for Couples on a Romantic trip, with a host of restaurants, bars and scenic walks nearby.

It's also an ideal base for Families with Young Children, who can explore the nearby Parks or spot Dolphins from the Beach.

If it's golf you are coming for then it's a great location for the world famous Open Championship courses of St. Andrews and Carnoustie. It's in the heart of Angus and Fife where there are dozens of fantastic courses.

The Space

There is a cosy Wood Burning Stove in the lounge and a bespoke kitchen that should provide all that you need on your travels.

The Master Bedroom is a good size with a lovely comfy bed and Beautiful River Views from the window. It has a built-in closet with plenty storage space and drawers.

The attic has been converted into 2 bedrooms which are ideal for children or the slightly smaller traveller. The ceiling height is suitable for about 5'8" so any taller and you may find it uncomfortable. If it's just somewhere to lay your head then it's a great little den up there.

One thing to be mindful of are the fairly steep stairs leading to the must be supervised whilst using these just in case there are any slips or stumbles.

The rooms in the attic consist of one larger room with a double bed and drawers. The other room is slightly smaller and has a single bed with a further single pull-out under-bed. These 2 single beds are ideal for kids or friends sharing the room because even though they can be pushed together they are at slightly different heights so maybe not recommended for couples. This is a great single bedroom but when used with the 2 beds it's floor space reduces quite a bit.

There is also a travel cot in the flat that is available for use with babies or young children. Just let me know if you need it and I can have it set up prior to your arrival.

The kitchen is well equipped with all you are likely to need for your stay, including oven; grill; microwave; toaster; kettle; and washing machine. There are also plenty of pots, pans and utensils should you wish to cook at home.

Great location, super accommodations and great owner!

  • 5 of 5

John was fabulous and went out of his way to make everything perfect for our wintry one week visit! This is seriously the best VRBO experience I have ever had. I was sad that we never got the burner going or to spend more time in the Ferry but family kept us super busy. Highly recommended.

Fisherman's FLat ,Broughty Ferry.

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very well appointed, scrupulously clean, and contained many unexpected and welcoming features that made us feel right at home. I Would recommend the accommodation to anyone looking for a short break in the Dundee area. (There are steep stairs to negotiate in the flat, but my wife and I managed them nae bother - and we're both well into our 70's}.

The flat is in a great location and close to all of Brought Ferry's shops, beach and amenities.
