The Steading Cottage St Andrews Offers Luxury Self Catering Accommodation at Aff

The Steading Cottage St Andrews Offers Luxury Self Catering Accommodation at Affordable Prices throughout the year.

The historic old town of St Andrews with it's beautiful unspoiled beaches and famous golf courses is only 4 miles away. Sitting in the shadow of St Athernase, a 12th century Norman church, the cottage forms part of a Steading complex, circa 1845. Centrally located within a beautifull unspoilt conservation area this luxuriously appointed cottage is ideally situated for exploring St Andrews, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee and the East Neuk of Fife’s numerous quaint fishing villages.

Available all year round, our self-catered cottage offers flexible accommodation close to St Andrews at a great price. The cottage sleeps between two and four people and features two king bedrooms. The living accommodation comprises a very spacious open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area and an equally spacious family bathroom with bath and shower. Extremely comfortable, the cottage is very well equipped with everything you will need. The Lounge has the full Sky TV package including Movies and Sports with a DVD and CD Player. Both bedrooms have Freeview TV and DVDs.

The walled garden is a perfect South facing sun trap and is the ideal place to relax in Fife's warm, dry weather. Prepair a meal at the purpose built BBQ site and relax in the luxurious gazebo, ideal for alfresco dinning.

There is private parking available on site for one vehicle with additional parking 20 meters from the door. With Leuchars rail station only a half mile away and buses to St Andrews and the rail station every 10 minutes up to midnight, the cottage is extremely well located with excellent transport links. A laundry service available on request. .

Early pre-booking is essential as many weeks are booked a year in advance.

You can contact us by email to enquire about availability through our web site at or by telephone directly on 07828666952 to avoid loosing your prefered stay period.

On our web site you can see full details of the cottage, view many more photographs on the owner's website, which can be accessed at the bottom of the "Facilities" tab above.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My mum regularly stays at the cottage as it has everything to offer. Beautiful accommodation (which is spotless) and idyllic, safe enclosed garden, which is perfect for families and pets. Had a fantastic one week relaxing stay. John and Ruby couldn't be any more helpful or accommodating. Highly recommend this cottage. Thank you!

A charming cottage with a beautiful garden and special touches that make for a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our stay at the Steading Cottage. Our daughter goes to the University of St. Andrews and we had come to Scotland to visit her. The cottage is in Leuchars, which is only about 10 minutes by car to St. Andrews. So, it was very convenient. There is also a bus stop within walking distance. The cottage is wonderful and the garden is stunning. The Morrisons have done everything to make your stay enjoyable. They had a bottle of wine waiting, as well as biscuits and milk for tea. The towels in the bathroom are soft and oversized, and there are even bathrobes for your use. Everything is clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful break in a great cottage

  • 5 of 5

As a family we all enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was very well equipped, great facilities wifi etc and a great location. Lovely private walled garden with bbq facilities which would be great in the summer. John is very friendly and explained everything that was needed to know. The little extras were great and much appreciated. A very short walk to local store and a great tasting takeaway pizza (thanks for the recommendation John!!) Overall a fantastic place to stay and would highly recommend. Hope we can visit again in the future. Thanks again The Hunter Family
