House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Lawpark Cottage is the separate wing of Lawpark House which was built in 1620 and is in a conservation area in old St Andrews. The property has been lovingly restored, completely re-furbished, has full central heating and is carefully maintained. There is a secluded terrace to the rear which overlooks a bird sanctuary and a delightful walk to the town centre through the Lade Braes walkway. The main entrance is directly off the car parking area and is at ground floor level with no stairs. There is a large heated front porch which is ideal for storing golf clubs, prams, wellies and even for drying off wet dogs!
Although golf is the most famous attraction, the town beaches are stunning and the East Neuk of Fife nearby is famous for fishing villages, harbours, sailing and art.
