About the property

House in Dairsie, Nr. St Andrews, Fife, Scotland - Peaceful Location Just 10 Minutes' Drive To St Andrews & Its Famous Golf Courses

The Beehouse is a beautifully presented three bedroom holiday house located just a short drive from the historic burgh of St Andrews, famous for its world class golf courses and stunning beaches. The property forms part of a recently converted steading building adjacent to the owners' home; with three double bedrooms (one downstairs) and three bathrooms it is ideal for families, golfers and couples alike. The house was completed in August 2012 and retains many original features including a quirky backdrop to the woodburning stove in the living room; recessed stone 'beeboles' where old-fashioned straw beehives were over-wintered. The Beehouse enjoys breathtaking south-facing views across arable farmland and woodland and is in a very peaceful private location. There is a patio area accessed from the open plan living/dining/kitchen area and an area of garden for use of guests. Well behaved pets are welcome by arrangement with the owners and at a nominal fee of £20 per pet. Please note that short lets of a minimum of 2 nights are welcome and please contact the owner for correct quote. Please note that the nightly rate is NOT calculated at 1/7 of a 7 night stay instead is calculated as a percentage of the weekly rate. ****Please contact owner for a quote - do not rely on this website to give correct online quotes for short stays.****

About Elizabeth Logan

Guy & Elizabeth Logan are owners of The Beehouse, and live in Dairsie Manse which is just adjacent with our two sons; Tom (13yrs) and Bruce (10 yrs), our Labrador Tess (2 yrs) and cat Milo (5 yrs). We bought Dairsie Manse 10 years ago and fully renovated the 200 year old Georgian property to form a wonderful family home. In 2012 we developed the steading building which was a set of 'outbuildings' used to service the Manse in its day; coach house, wash room, stables, cattle stalls & hayloft. The Beehouse forms part of this conversion. Guy is from Fife, Elizabeth is a newcomer (of 16 years) from London, Sydney & USA. Both boys were born here.

Elizabeth Logan purchased this house in 2006
