Overview

About the property

Newly refurbished luxury self catering three bedroom country cottage situated only two minutes from the heart of St. Andrews, the home of Golf! Sympathetically and tastefully renovated 1930's cottage with a high standard of finish. White Cottage brings the best of both worlds, being minutes from the bustling town of St. Andrews whilst having an idyllic rural setting. We purchased White Cottage in August 2015 and have gone through extensive renovations allowing us to offer this beautiful cottage for holiday rentals.

Sleeping up to 5, the accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms, 1 x Super King (can be made Twin), 1 x Double & 1 Single, a large open plan lounge/dining area complete with wood burning stove (logs supplied), newly fitted kitchen and a generously sized family bathroom. White Cottage is suitable for families, groups and golfing parties alike.

White Cottage is nestled within approximately 0.5 acres of private gardens mainly laid to lawn with established pine trees and superb views over the bay of St. Andrews. There is a childrens play area complete with a slide and two swings which is guaranteed to keep our younger guests entertained, a BBQ is also available for use allowing guests to make the most of the spacious gardens during the warmer months.

As well as being ideally situated for St. Andrews, White Cottage is also an ideal base for exploring the East Neuk of Fife, and beyond, and all it has to offer.

With White Cottage, we've aimed to create a true home away from home. Having stayed in several holiday cottages ourselves, with young children, we appreciate a well equipped homely property can make all the difference to your holiday.

The main open plan living/dining area is tastefully decorated with a bay window and the main feature being the wood burner. With seating for 6, the spacious dining area is a fantastic setting for family dining. The bookcase and armchair finish the room nicely.

The kitchen is very well equipped and finished with beautiful solid oak worktops.

The spacious family bathroom comprises a large shower bath with power shower, large Edwardian style sink, underfloor heating, large chrome towel warmer and demisting mirror.

Each of the three bedrooms are tastefully styled. All of the beds come with Orthopaedic mattresses and are medium/firm. Egyptian cotton bedding is used throughout. The master bedroom is generously sized with a large bay window and built in storage. The double bedroom has windows to the west and north and built in storage space. The third room is a generously sized single room with views to the south.

About Michael P

We are a family of 5 from Aberdeen, born and bred, and we fell in love with St Andrews as a holiday location.

Michael P purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Michael P chose Saint Andrews

We had been looking for a suitable property for a few months and stumbled across White Cottage on the way home from a trip to Anstruther. We fell in love with it instantly! Even though it needed full refurbishment, we knew it was the holiday house for us. We've put a considerable amount of time and effort into getting the cottage to where it is now, we're confident our guests will appreciate it!

What makes this cottage unique

We've stayed in many holiday lets and have felt most at home in properties that are made to feel homely and are true homes away from home. The last thing we would want to do is make our holiday home feel like a hotel suite! We've kitted the cottage out with furnishings and decor to hopefully achieve the feeling of homeliness. We've equipped the kitchen very well so that our guests don't feel that they're missing anything when it comes to mealtimes. The wood burning stove gives a lovely warm feeling (literally!) and finishes off the living space nicely. The views over the bay of St. Andrews are amazing as well as the views to the south over the fields.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cottage modernised and furnished in the country style. Very comfortable and cosy on these cold March evenings. The kitchen is lovely and spacious and is stocked with all mod cons and utensils that you would need for a short stay. There were only two of us staying but the cottage is big enough for a family of four or more. We had good fun with the wood burning stove which made the lounge very cosy in the evenings. A car is essential for a stay here as it is at least a mile into St Andrews on a country road with no pavement. Nice views from the windows. We were surprised and fascinated at the amount of wildlife just outside the front door to the point that we donated a pair of binoculars bought from a local charity shop !! It is our intention to return to White Cottage in the summer and have already made enquires.

SHORT BREAK WITH GRANDDAUGHERS

  • 5 of 5

White Cottage was a perfect place to spend a few days with our granddaughters. Located in very peaceful surroundings just a few minutes drive from centre of St. Andrews makes it an excellent spot for visiting the town, beaches or exploring the Fife coast.

The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything you could need. Nice kitchen and dinning area. Welcome pack was appreciated. Thank you Michael & Jill for letting us stay and Nadine for your contact and directions. We enjoyed our visit and recommend it to anyone thinking of booking.

Stunning country cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage set in a stunning location. It's just a short drive from St. Andrews but it feels like you're in the middle of the countryside. It's also a very private and quiet location. Inside the cottage is beautifully decorated and has lots of extras, toys, sky TV, docking station, binoculars to look at the view of the bay from the back garden, and a lovely welcome food pack when you arrive. They really have thought of everything. A real home from home. A cannot recommend white cottage highly enough. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay

Cosy coastal retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely mini-break at white cottage enjoying a fair bit of sunshine for the time of year whilst out walking around the beautiful coastline. The cottage was quiet and well situated and furnished to a very high standard with excellent facilities and provision of household equipment. The welcome hamper was well-received and a very thoughtful touch. Thank you for a perfect stay....we hope to return in the summer.

Comfort and Peace

  • 5 of 5

The White cottage did not disappoint. Location is great; close enough to St Andrews but rural in aspect. The house was most thoughtfully, carefully and efficiently equipped. Yes all is pretty new but there really was absolutely nothing lacking. Masses of equipment in the kitchen and comfortable beds and good quality linen. For anyone wanting the best of both worlds: then this is perfect.. Strongly recommended

Fantastic Accommodation at St Andrews

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at White Cottage for two nights in June 2016, wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage was decorated and furnished to a very high standard and very clean.

The kitchen came stocked with all the essentials like coffee, tea, bread and milk and had all the appliances, plates, cups, glasses etc that you would need for a holiday.

The bedrooms all have comfy beds and the underfloor heating in the bathroom is great!

The little touches like a box of toys that kept our two year old entertained for our trip, plenty of books (including kids books), Sky TV and an iPod with Amazon music really make this 5 star accommodation.

We will hopefully be returning for a longer stay in the future and would definitely recommend White Cottage.
