We spent four days her in June. Although it was not luxury accommodation it was spacious and clean. We were in #5 which was a two bedroom with a full kitchen and living room. It is located very close to the Fairmont and you have access to their facilities. It was close to town, just of the main highway. It... More

The cottage had facilities which made the stay there very comfortable; a home from home. The views from the cottage are spectacular. The cottages border on a world-class links golf course which has a path leading directly to a walkway along the North Sea coast line. The location is a great base for trips around the east coast of Scotland.... More

Our daughter and family, who live in Elgin, come to St Andrews each year around Xmas time to meet up with us. Unfortunately one of their children is severely asthmatic and is liable to react badly to our dog suffused house, no matter how assiduously it is cleaned before she arrives. Fortunately one of the Balmashie cottages is kept pet... More

I recently stayed in cottage number 2 with a group of 7 friends. The cottage was perfect - nice big clean bedrooms with lots of wardrobe space, big kitchen, massive comfy sofas and dining area. The people running the cottages were so kind and helpful - we couldn't have asked for more. At only a 5 minute drive away, I... More

We had a look at Balmashie on a previous visit to St. Andrews and decided to try it out on our latest trip. It was important that our holiday should be relaxing. Our past experience with B&Bs is that having to get up at a set time for breakfast and having to eat out in the evenings can be quite... More

We needed pet-free accommodation over the Xmas period for our daughter and her family. They cannot stay in our house because one of the children is severely asthmatic and is allergic to our dogs.The Balmashie people could not of been more helpful in arranging for a suitable cottage and about returning a charger that had been left behind.

We had a wonderful week at Balmashie Cottages from 13th to 20th October 2012. As our daughter was getting married at Kinkell Byre on the 18th of October, we decided to block book several of the cottages for different family members. The location is ideal and Iain and Louise are eager to please and are very efficient and thoughtful. The... More
