Situated three miles from the historic town of St. Andrews. This cottage forms part of a former holiday complex, where the apartments are now privetely owned. This pet friendly cottage, all on one level, commands truly stunning unrivalled views from its open plan lounge over the Kittocks links golf course to the sea beyond, on a good day you can see right across the mouth of the Tay to Carnoustie and the Bell Rock lighthouse, which the cottage has been named after. The cottage has been tastefully decorated and offers a great base to explore the countryside, with the fife coastal path easily accessible and within a mile out of the back gate.

This cottage forms part of a former holiday complex, where the apartments are now privetely owned. This pet friendly cottage, all on one level, commands truly stunning unrivalled views from its open plan lounge over the Kittocks links golf course to the sea beyond, on a good day you can see right across the mouth of the Tay to Carnoustie and the Bell Rock lighthouse, which the cottage has been named after. The cottage has been tastefully decorated and offers a great base to explore the countryside, with the fife coastal path easily accessible and within a mile out of the back gate. The property boasts an open plan lounge and well equipped kitchen with patio doors leading to an extensive, fully fenced garden area, from where you can spot a huge variety of birds and wildlife, watch the golf and appreciate the beautiful scenery. There is plenty of space for kids to explore. There is a good sized family shower-room with walk in shower and two twin bedrooms (with ample space to move furniture to suit different parties). There is also a mains wired fire detection system and ample parking guests and visitors. The centre of St. Andrews is 3.6 miles away and the medieval - but at the same time cosmopolitan - town offers a lot more than golf itself, with its historic buildings, university, colourful boutique shops, bars and restaurants, not to mention its magnificent award winning beaches, the town is a virtual treasure trove of attractions for tourists of all ages. Kingsbarns is 2.7 miles away in the other direction where you will find Kingsbarns golf links (which has co-hosted the Dunhill Links Championship along with the Old Course in St. Andrews and Carnoustie since 2001) an award winning, dog-friendly beach, a distillery, visitor centre, Cafe and inn. If you want to experience everything this area has to offer, then this property is perfectly placed for families and golfers alike. St Andrews Holiday Apartments is owned and managed by a born and bred St Andrean who knows and loves St Andrews and the East Neuk. I have over fifteen years of experience in letting holiday properties in the area and offer a comprehensive local knowledge to help you plan your perfect holiday, whether you are a family, golfing party or looking for a weekend break.More
