The house was completed in August 2012 and retains many original features including a quirky backdrop to the woodburning stove in the living room; recessed stone 'beeboles' where old-fashioned straw beehives were over-wintered. The Beehouse enjoys breathtaking south-facing views across arable farmland and woodland and is in a very peaceful private location.

"Choose this for a home from home atmosphere."

We were a family group, aged from 1 year to 67 years, who found a short weekend didn't do The Beehouse justice. It was sooo cosy and warm that on a miserable November day, with the haar reaching … More

Thank you for your lovely review - please come back in the Summer & enjoy the sunshine ! Merry Christmas to you all. x Elizabeth & family

"Perfect in Every Way"

This is the second time we've had the pleasure of staying at the Beehouse and, again, we loved every minute of our time there. The property has such a lovely feel about it and is very well equipped. The location is beautiful and tranquil and the Logans (owners) are so friendly and welcoming. We love it there so much that we are already planning our third visit! I can't recommend it enough.

We can't wait to welcome you all back again soon ! Love Biz & Family

"Great setting and great weather"

This was our 2nd visit to the Beehouse and Elizabeth and family welcomed us back in great style by organising the hottest week in June. As ever there is a relaxed and rural to the Beehouse although not being too far away from civilisation. We were able to spend some time in the garden with boys of various ages running around freely and the dogs chasing each other whilst enjoying a BBQ and wee drink in the sun. The Beehouse is comfortable and well laid out to meet the needs of any visitor.
We have two young boys, a springer spaniel and we find that the Beehouse is a safe, warm and quiet home for all.
And once everyone else goes to sleep dad can enjoy a dram in front of the real fire stove.

There is plenty to do in the area for all tatses including golf, beaches, visitor attractions and some great eating venues.

We look forward to going again, soon.

Thank you so much and hopefully we can welcome you back to The Beehouse soon !

Best regards

Elizabeth & family

"We'll be back!"

Absolutely loved this place, ideal for a quick get away from it all break. Beautifully furnished, well kept and well appointed, this has the right balance of tasteful decoration and relaxed informality. Nice to have bedrooms without TVs, lovely views across corn fields and easy to access the East Neuk of Fife. Our dog was made particularly welcome by the owners dog which made for a very relaxed time.

Thank you ! Especially from Tess to Miss Binks x

"Amazing place to stay"

We stayed for week commencing 16/08/14. This house is truly beautiful and has everything that you need plus more. It was like staying in a top class hotel with all the luxuries but had a lovely homely touch. Everything was spotless on our arrival and all the basics such as clean towels etc were provided but also the kitchen was fully equipped with more pots and pans than I have at home! There was even washing powder and comfort to wash our clothes with.

We went as we were playing golf in St Andrews and the house is perfectly located as it is only a 5 minute drive away.

The Logan family are wonderful hosts and are friendly but also discreet. The boys were very well mannered and polite and Tess the puppy is just amazing, even if she did pinch our ball during a game of catch with the boys!

This review does not do The Beehouse and the Logan family justice really as it is difficult to express how nice The Beehouse is in words. All I can say is that if you are travelling to St Andrews you need to stay there to experience it for yourself.

Thank you sooo much ! What a lovely review - very touching. Pllllleeease come back soon xx

"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

"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
