"Wonderful holiday at the Beehouse"

This has been our second year at the here and we will certainly be back next year!
It is perfect in every way for my family of five. Elizabeth, the owner and her lovely family made us all feel so welcome again.
We were very lucky to have great weather and the Beehouse is not far from all the lovely beaches around the area.
The Beehouse itself is super comfy, good open plan kitchen and living area and spacious bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms.
Can't wait to return next year!

Thank you all so very much for coming again for a second year. We absolutely love having you here and you have become a part of our summer hols ! See you very soon xxx

"Super family holiday home"

We had a fantastic week's holiday here with our one year old and friends with their three year old. The house is very child friendly and the garden/patio area was brilliant for outdoor eating and… More

Thank you !

"Fantastic stay"

We stayed at the Beehouse for ten days, with toddler and parents (in law) in tow, and it was perfect in every way. Our family had the top floor, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and the parents-in-law were self contained with bedroom and bathroom downstairs. Elizabeth was a wonderful host and made us so welcome. Her boys were fantastic with our two year old as were the dogs and chickens. There's lovely walking down the lane to the castle and bridge and there was plenty to do right there on the property as well as close by. For other families with young kids, we recommend 'Muddy Boots' in Cupar, which was a hit with our little one! We'd love to return.

Thanks for your great review - hope you are all well and please do come again ! Best wishes from all the Logans, including Tess our new yellow lab puppy

"Excellent accomodation"

Fantastic accommodation, very comfortable, spacious and well situated. The views from the property are wonderful, especially the main bedroom with a large panoramic window. The house is well equipped, extremely clean and tidy and made the perfect holiday home. The location was good for seeing a large geographical area. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

"The Beehouse is a class act, very clean, comfortable and peaceful."

The Beehouse was AMAZING! As soon as we arrived, my 3 golf buddies and I immediately agreed to “NO PICTURES” as we knew our wives would insist on bringing them the next time. It was going to be our little secret! We wanted a place to unwind after golfing. Unwinding we did. The Beehouse is a class act, very clean, comfortable and peaceful. The views are breathtaking. Elizabeth is a very gracious hostess; attentive, informative & helpful. One day after a mid-day shower, we were treated to one of the largest rainbows we've ever experienced. The golf courses and shopping are close enough to be convenient but not too close where you could hear or see the hustle and bustle of a town. In the 20 years I've been taking golf excursions with my friends, I've never seen them more relaxed. And yes, I will be going back in a couple of years with my wife! Wonderful! Thank you Elizabeth.

Many thanks Harry ! I can't wait to welcome you back - next time with Celeste. Best regards

"Beehouse is comfortable , immaculate and a wonderful place to stay, thankyou for holiday perfection."

We rented the Beehouse for a week over Easter, 3 adults and 3 children.
As soon as we arrived( good directions given ) we knew we were going to have a lovely holiday.
The property has been finished to a high quality yet also very comfortable standard. It's been very well thought out with all the rooms an excellent size and both bedrooms upstairs have very large smart en suites .
The kitchen, dining area and lounge is one very large room , perfect for families , with the underfloor heating adding an extremely cosy feel to it .
The downstairs bedroom is next to a large wet room type bathroom which is ideal .
In all this house was as close to perfection as a rental property could be .
There were so many nice and thoughtful touches throughout the house, from little pots of local honey to being able to get a shopping delivered to the house before we arrived.
The views from every room in the house are breathtaking and beautiful giving the feeling of escapism from busy lives. Yet in a 10 minute drive you are in the centre of St Andrews.
There are loads of outdoor activities in the close surrounding area and many places worth a visit. We will definitely be holidaying again at the Beehouse.

Thank you Alan - sorry not to meet you whilst you were on holiday at The Beehouse; hopefully we will be able to welcome you here again! Elizabeth

"Amazing place to stay."

We had a lovely relaxing time at the beehouse. The accomodation was beautiful and views spectacular. Our grandmother came along with us and the kids also the dogs. There was plenty room for us all. Location was close by a lot of attractions. Lovely walks close by for us and the dogs. We loved after a busy day getting all cosy beside the fire. Elizabeth and family were very welcoming. Thank you again for our relaxing break. Will definatly be back again.

Thank you ! It was a pleasure to meet you and please do come back again soon. Best regards Elizabeth
