We chose St Andrews because of the long sandy beaches, old, old town, amazing scenery and proximity to airports and trains. Our cottages - West Sands and East Sands - can be rented together or separately; are converted from 18thC stables buildings and set just outside the centre of town in beautiful quiet grounds.
Hello. Our family's living across the courtyard from the cottages. We're screened from one another by trees so privacy's good: our mission in life's to be as quiet and considerate as possible so we all have a good time.
If you have a question and we're about we're happy to do all we can, though there's no round-the-clock how-may-we-help-you turndown-and-trouser-press concierge service.
We have a cat and two small dogs who are not meant to wander into the cottages, but given the chance of an unguarded open door they might be forgiven for making a break for the border. They're very friendly and mostly pretty respectful, so if they commit such a crime please just shoo them out.
We ask you not to smoke in the cottages and suggest you take a minute to read carefully the notes about heating, plumbing etc., mostly because the stables are part of an historic estate: our guests have been great and there's never been a drain issue, but it isn't a thing we'd want on holiday and imagine you'll feel the same way.
We reserve the right to charge cost price for breakages, spills/stains and other damage, and extra cleaning or excessive heating charges.

I've travelled a lot in my work as a freelance writer and out of it. We moved to St Andrews in Scotland from my last stop (Amsterdam NL) for the rugged scenery, the beaches, the Scottish way of life (yes, times have changed and you can get *great* food here) and for the poetry. It's beautiful here: bring a sweater.
