About the property

Cottage in St Andrews, Fife, Central Scotland - Peaceful Location Close to Beach, Town and Golf

Quality one bedroom cottage kitted out to a high spec and close to all amenities. It is a short walk into town where there is a selection of individual shops as well as a wide range of restaurants and bars. There is something for everything from country walks and botanic gardens to tennis, golf and swimming. Weather permitting, you can relax in the courtyard after a day of sightseeing. Overall a great base for a fun filled or relaxing holiday.

About Sandra Johnston

A a family we have lived here for the past five years. Growing up I spent many a happy holiday in St Andrews so we decided it would be a great place for family life. When the house was being extended the brick garage was converted into a one bedroom cottage and we felt it would be nice to rent it out and hope that others would enjoy St Andrews too.

Sandra Johnston purchased this cottage in 2009

Lovely cottage in a quiet but convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was ideal for a short break visiting our daughter at the university. It is very well furnished and equipped, and close to the town centre (10 to 15 minutes on foot) for all amenities. We loved having the extra space of a cottage to relax with our daughter.

My husband and I rented this adorable cottage while staying in St. Andrews. It was tastefully decorated, extremely clean, very comfortable and quite homey. The kitchen was well-equipped, the bed extremely comfortable, and it was so nice to have a washer and dryer. We really enjoyed coming back at the end of the day and sitting in our courtyard drinking a glass of wine. It was a short walk to town and you could reach the city Centre by following the Lade Braes, a beautiful and peaceful trail along a stream and through the woodlands. Sandra was a pleasure to deal with and promptly responded to my emails. Check in was a breeze. You will not regret renting this cottage during your stay in St. Andrews. Thank you Sandra for your gracious hospitality. Mike and Susan (Dallas, Texas)

Exactly as promised

  • 5 of 5

The property was a little hard to find...basically in a residential area behind the initial row of houses....after you find it the first time it will make sense. There was a nice walking path into town which was easily reachable in 10-15 (leisurely walk). As the title says, everything was as exactly as promised. THe living room, kitchen and bathroom are all downstairs and the king-sized bedroom is upstairs. Home owner was very responsive to requests and willing to help when needed. Maybe I should change the title to "more than promised"...

Lovely, clean, peaceful cottage in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is just outside the centre of Dr Andrews, 10-15 minutes walk from the centre. It has everything you need and was lovely and clean. It was nice to be away from the main road and to see the trees and hear the river and birds. Sandra was very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely go back. Thanks for a lovely visit.

Fabulous Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this very well equipped, quiet cozy cottage and would definitely stay here again. Toiletries were provided along with a very nice welcome pack.. It is a short walk into St. Andrews along a beautiful treed path. Highly recommended!

Home from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect stay!! We spent a few nights here when we went up for a friend's wedding in St Andrews. It was perfect from start to finish. Beautiful accommodation. Big spacious living area; wonderfully comfortable bedroom in a glorious roof space; and a fantastic modern boutique hotel standard bathroom. Great value for money too. We really cannot recommend enough.
