Located on the A917 to St Andrews this B&B has a great look onto the sea and very nice rooms, great breakfast and a nice owner. Felt very at home and will come back the next time, free wifi not to mention.

Cannot fault this lovely little B&B, just a mile or so from St. Andrews. Very congenial proprietor, warm and comfortable rooms, with everything that you'd need for a short stay. The breakfast was fab - tasty and plentiful. Highly recommended.

We were very lucky to obtain, at very short notice, dialysis slots at St. Andrews Hospital. My first reaction was to contact Mrs Duncan and she had a room available. I explained that we had to be at the hospital at 0715 three mornings in the week and that we didn't expect breakfast on those mornings. Anne wouldn't hear of... More

We are frequent visitors to St Andrews and have stayed at Spinkstown Farmhouse many times always with complete satisfaction. We returned this June after a gap and it was well up to standard: spacious room which was very well equipped, nice bathroom with lots of toiletries and comfortable bed. What really sets Spinkstown apart is the quality of the breakfast... More

Having just come back from a wedding in St Andrews I wanted to write and say how lovely this B&B was. Anne, the host, is very friendly and welcoming. The room we stayed in, with an ensuite, was a great size, clean and tidy, lots of storage and very comfortable. I must mention the breakfast - absolutely lovely. So much... More

Lovely b&b. I had a huge room with a gorgeous view. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was lovely. A great choice of both hot and cold food. Only 2 criticisms: 1 I don't like having to choose breakfast the night before. I far prefer to decide in the morning 2: I really didn't like the lack of... More

Just returned after 5 days in the family room with my wife and daughter. The room was a good size, with good facilities and pleasant view. The welcome, helpfulness and friendliness were great and the breakfast freshly prepared and tailored to each persons requirements. We would definitely stay here again if we plan to visit the area.

Words are quite inadequate to describe my latest stay at Spinkstown Farmhouse. The experience here is an exceptional one in every way. And, of course, the real bonus is that it lies just a couple of miles from St Andrews with its famous beaches, golf courses and university. The hostess, Anne Duncan, is welcoming, charming and a wonderful exponent of... More

The perfect place to stay right near St Andrews. Lovely farmhouse location with large spacious rooms and bathrooms. Very clean rooms and a very well maintained business. One of the very few B&Bs that I've stayed in that actually has a bath. Mrs Duncan was very warm and welcoming and made excellent breakfasts. The whole experience was just wonderful. I... More
