Great location with access to beach and local hotel. Lovely surrounding walks with golf courses nearby. House is very comfortable with easy access to St Andrews. Great to relax in after a busy day sightseeing/golfing/walking. Have visited on several occasions and will definitely return.

Just back from a lovely week in Kingsbarns. The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed. It felt like a home from home. Short walk to the glorious Kingsbarns beach and a short drive to St Andrews. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to return.
