Brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cosy cottage. Perfect for 2 but even with 3 staying wasn't cramped. Wifi worked well. Can't comment on cooking facilities as didn't have to use them....wonderful! Great location for bars and restaurants and no worries about driving. So quiet inside, yet right in the town. A great base for all of St Andrews many attractions. Clean and compact with a good use of available space. Very helpful owner, but not intrusive. Excellent communication before booking and fast refund of deposit. Cannot fault Nikki and little extras were much appreciated. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful character cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage which has been thoughtfully and tastefully refurbished to combine it`s elegant character with modern luxuries.The whole property was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable and benefits from gas central heating and wifi.The bed is very large and comfortable and has lovely crisp white bed linen.The owners, Ian and Nikki were great and they provided a lovely welcome pack as well as dishwasher tablets etc. The attention to detail they give to this property, as well as the service they provide is second to none. It was a real privilege to stay here.We had to drag ourselves away and we cannot wait to return. We cannot praise this lovely cottage and its owners enough and we would highly recommend it to anyone .
