Relaxing retreat in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The Grangehill Cottage in St. Andrews is a beautiful home on a hill with amazing views and every comfort you can imagine. Each bedroom is wonderfully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the living spaces are perfection. I never wanted to leave the sunroom where I enjoyed watching the rabbits in the garden and the birds with my coffee every morning. Our hosts provided delicious strawberries and treats on our arrival from the adjoining strawberry farm. An easy walk into town. Can't wait to return.

beautiful property overlooking St Andrews

  • 2 of 5

Stayed for a long weekend at this beautiful property, it is maintained to a high standard, very clean and was perfect for our family get together. It is couple of miles outside the centre of St Andrews and has the most gorgeous view down over the city and sea, easy walk into town. Lovely farm shop next door with a small café and kids play area outside, a lovely touch was some goodies for us on arrival from the farm shop in the fridge, can recommend the strawberries! Could not fault this property, would not hesitate to recommend it and would certainly book again.

Family Easter Break..

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Grangehill cottage over the Easter weekend 2017. The property was super, it was a nice large, very clean and well decorated cottage. We spent a lot of our time in the conservatory as it is a fantastic sun trap with great views. The walk into the centre isn't too far and on Sunday with 4 children we walked down and visited the park near the beach.

We would certainly come to this cottage again.
