Overview

Fife Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom studio flat

Our property is situated 2 miles from St Andrews on a quiet road in the rural countryside. It has easy access to the town by car, taxi, bus, bicycle or walking.

It is a two bedroom flat above a hobbyist garage. Each room can sleep 4 people with a sofa bed in the lounge for another 2. There are two bathrooms one en suite, a fully fitted kitchen and a spacious lounge.

A breakfast bar is part of the kitchen set-up with a dining table in the lounge to accommodate 6 people.

Underfloor heating throughout gives it a warm cosy feeling.

There are steps up to the property with one main access door.

Recently we have built a beautiful Balcony on the side of the Holiday Home so guests can enjoy a morning coffee or barbeque out doors in the afternoon or evening. We have provided comfortable furniture with cushions and a Gas Barbeque.

There is ample parking for a number of cars on the property.

We can accommodate families or golfers of all ages, dogs are welcome as long as they are well behaved.

No smoking inside please.

Muir Park Holiday home is situated next to our family home so we are on hand for any advice but respect the tenants privacy.

A quiet country setting not far from the thrill of St Andrews and all its amenities.

Golf Attractions: St Andrews has been a magnet to tourists for decades. It's main attraction being Golf hence 'The Home of Golf' it boasts 10 Golf courses. Our property is within 2 miles of many. For those who do not play the history of the golf scene is just as fascinating, The Royal and Ancient is situated by The Old Course and next to The Golf Museum. Tom Morris' son is buried in the cathedral graveyard and can be visited. There are numerous golf shops and souvenir memorabilia.

All the golf club houses are within easy access and full of information.

There is a small 9 hole called the Balgove which is ideal for beginners and children no teatime needed.

Next to the west sands beach there is and 18 hole putting green called the Himalayers due to its rather challenging humps! Children love it and it's a great challenge.

Leisure activites: Just at the bottom of our road half a mile away is a fully equipped leisure centre with swimming pool, gym, squash courts and cafe, ideal for children as there is a children's pool and slide.

For the more extravagant we have the Fairmont a mile away with a lovely spa and pool.

There also many beauty treatments to be taken in the town itself.

The Byre theatre is always busy and comprises of 1 main auditorium and 2 smaller ones. It produces a variety of acts and a superb pantomime.

St Andrews Sea Life Centre sits on the beach, a must for the children where they can watch the seals being fed.

Water sports are common and if you love surfing then with 2 beaches you are spoilt for choice.

There are 3 museums which are full of local knowledge and of course the cathedral and castle are full of exciting information. The children will love the bottle dungeon and the underground tunnel in the castle.

A fun packed week can be had in St Andrews.

Muir Park St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

The property is extremely comfortable and furnished/decorated to a very high standard. Kitchen is very well equipped and plenty of towels for showering etc.

Louise and Alistair are very welcoming. As our granddaughter(aged 10) wrote in the visitors book on our first day, "We feel at home already".

Pleasant afternoons at the Aquarium and the Castle. Recommend Fish and Chips at 'The Tail End'.

Perfect place for golf week

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time on a week trip to St Andrews area for golf. This was a perfect place to stay for our foursome. The cost was very reasonable! Allistor and Louise could not have been more gracious hosts. Their home area is beautiful and we had all the comforts of home after a day at the golf course. We were close to all local courses and 2 miles to town and grocery stores. We could not have picked a better place! Thank you Allistor and Louise

even better than the first time

  • 5 of 5

this was our second visit and it was lovely to return and find everything as excellent as we remember it. With the marvellous addition of the veranda up in the trees, this is a lovely private outdoor space to catch the sun , have your coffee or any meal for that matter. The house itself is very spacious with very effective underfloor heating and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. The views going down into St Andrews itself are sublime (2 minutes away in the car but walk-able as well) There is also very good wi-fi. Thank you Louise and Alistair once again for a lovely stay.

St Andrews

  • 5 of 5

Lodging in and around St Andrews was tight due to the R and A annual meeting. I kept checking back and found this property. As soon as we arrived I knew we had lucked out. The unit was much larger than we expected, clean and well appointed. The owners could not have been nicer. It is a perfect place for a family or two couples. It's only a minute or two from downtown without any parking problems. It deserves a higher rating than 5 stars. It's a home away from home.

Great St Andrews home

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this home. It was out a bit from town but at a very easy to find location. The garden was a lovely sight from the house and it was not far at all from town. The housemet all our needs and gave us a real feel of being at home. We would recommend this to all.

East Sands

St Andrews is a lovely seaside town full of local history and bursting at the seams with Golf courses. Golfers can spend all day enjoying any of the 11 courses while others less inclined to play can wander the historic street and visit the castle and cathedral ruins. There are many cafes, restaurants, pubs and gift shops to visit all very close to each other.

The town boasts two scenic beaches, the West Sands featured in the 'Chariots of Fire' film, and the East sands which has won awards for it's beauty and family atmosphere.

Theatre lovers can visit the Byre Theatre and for film buffs there is a Cinema.

Children can make use of the local indoor swimming pool or visit the Sea Life Centre on the sea front.

There are many surrounding fishing villages such as Crail, Anstruther,Pittenween and more which are visited by many every year.

For the energetic walker there is a splendid coastal walk along the coast and some beautiful scenic drives.

St Andrews has something for all.

Golf: St Andrews boasts 11 golf courses all very close to each other. Spectacular views many overlooking the sea. The historical Royal and Ancient sits proudly next to the Old Course. You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to a high quality and standard of Golf courses.

St Andrews attracts thousands of people from all over the world for it's Golf and when the big competitions are on the town is a hive of activity. For those celebrity spying, The Open is a must.

The club houses are very accommodating and there are many packages to undertake if you should want to improve your Golf and have a lesson or two from a pro.

If you do feel the need to play further afield there are numerous golf courses in Carnoustie and of course Gleneagles.

For the keen and ambitious golfer, the tentative beginner and for children St Andrew ticks all the boxes.

Ski: The closest ski resort to us is Glenshee.
