About Marian Morton
My husband and I both love travelling when we can find the time ! Like many people -we absolutely love the golfing town of St Andrews. We try to fit in quality time here with friends and family as often as possible.
Marian Morton purchased this Cottage in 2018
Why Marian Morton chose Saint Andrews
We bought this gem of a property because we have always loved the beautiful town of St Andrews- it is a special place for us as we have been visiting here for over 30 years -thanks to close friends living in the area. We both fell in love with 'The Bunker Cottage' instantly -with its quaint historical charm and the surprising beautiful garden to the rear . The fantastic stone that it was built with so many ,many years ago was an immediate love of mine -especially when I saw that it continued to the beautiful feature stone wall in the rear garden - You’ll be amazed at the unbelievably thick stone walls internally! We had wanted a house in St Andrews with a truly central location -as we plan to spend a lot of time here exploring with our family and friends. We knew this was it -within minutes of coming through the front door!
What makes this Cottage unique
The Bunker Cottage is so cosy and welcoming inside. You can feel it's homely charm as soon as you walk through the front door. It's completely central to absolutely everything you could want from the heart of the town. The Bunkers unique character gives its history -and many stories yet to unfold! A true delight for worldwide golfers is that the World famous 'Old Course' is only a few minutes away. It's also positioned only a few minutes to the beautiful sandy beaches! Historical buildings and landmarks are easily reached on foot. There is just so much more - only a short walk away! Most guests find that no car is required from this location to take in everything that St Andrews has to offer! If you are travelling by car -even although we are right in the centre of town -we are so very fortunate to have parking right outside our front door for the ease of unloading ! There are plenty free street parking areas and free car parks and Free Parking Zone just a little further along North St to park up your car for the rest of your stay. The free zone and free areas are clearly signposted.

I wouldn’t not change a single detail when it comes to this property. One of the best VRBO experiences I’ve ever had. The place was absolutely spotless when we arrived. Location could not be more central and perfect. Lastly, the house set up was awesome. The garden was a total treat.
Great Stay, Perfect Location
Loved the quaint home! Surrounded by wonderful coffee shops, restaurants, and of course, the best golf.
We were more than satisfied with our lodging experience at Bunker Cottage. The location was ideal - just a few steps to the center of the Market Street area with its many shops and eating options, and an easy walk to the golf. We found the apartment to be clean, comfortable and stocked with the necessary amenities. Will definitely return.
Delightful home in an excellent location
We stayed at "The Bunker" for the occasion of our niece's graduation from St. Andrews. The cottage is located right across North Street from St. Salvator's Chapel, so we were able to enjoy watching all the differing graduates lining up for their ceremonies -- yet the cottage walls are so thick, the sound of the bells did not intrude.
The cottage is beautifully appointed, with lovely linens and amenities. We only used the kitchen for cooking breakfast, but noticed it was fully stocked with cooking equipment, so if one wished, full meals could be prepared.
We had one day of rain, and noticed that the conservatory is delightful (and warm) in the rain, while looking out on the lovely, peaceful rear garden. On the warm days, the garden is redolent of lavender.
We are not golfers, but it is quite close to the Old Course, and there's ample storage in the shed for clubs.
We very much enjoyed our stay, and will book again should we return to St. Andrews.
Family wedding in St Andrews
Thank you very much, a great location in a beautiful place. All the home comforts with plenty of extras. Great little cottage with a lovely garden. Would highly recommend, especially if you are attending a wedding at St Salvator’s Chapel.....a great find. Thank you Marian x
Bunker Cottage is a Winner!
Our family of 5 stayed at the Bunker Cottage, 84 North St, St Andrews this week and it was a highlight of our trip to Scotland. The accommodations were very comfortable, centrally located for the University and golf enthusiasts and were outfitted with every amenity imaginable. It was like staying in our own home! We only wish we could have stayed longer. If you are planning a trip to St Andrews we highly recommend the Bunker Cottage!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a detailed review of ‘The Bunker Cottage’- it is most appreciated.
We are delighted to hear that your family really enjoyed visiting St Andrews!
We would love to have you all to stay with us again in the future.
