Centrally located ground floor apartment in 16th century house with parking and use of large 'lang rigg' garden. Ideal for couples wanting to be within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, golf courses, beach and all that this vibrant town has to offer. 44 South Street is in the historic part of town and close to the Cathedral. The apartment has been recently modernized and is bright, airy and well-equipped. Available for weekly lets in the summer.

The main front door is on South Street and leads to an entrance hallway. This is shared with the owners who live upstairs and are on hand to assist you throughout your stay. The living room is bright and airy, with double futon, dining table and chairs, flat screen tv with freeview channels and DVD. The kitchen is open plan to the living room, well equipped and modern. The bedroom (separated from the living room by two yards across the hallway) has a double bed and ample storage. The large bathroom is en-suite, with bath, overhead shower, wh basin, wc and towel rail.

The shared utility area is in a medieval barrel-vault cellar and has a washing machine, drier and chest freezer. Access requires a certain flexibility of limb and is not for the faint-hearted.

The garden is an amazing secret garden and attractively laid out with trees and shrubs. While this is shared with the writer owner (who has a writing hut within the garden) and his family, it is sufficiently large that you can easily find yourselves a private space to sit and relax. Please be aware that we have built a Montessori Nursery classroom at the bottom of the garden (about a hundred yards away) so that, in the month of June before the school ends for the summer, guests will only be able to use the garden after 2pm. There is parking at the end of the garden for 3 cars (but again, in June, this is only available after school hours.)

Here are a couple of reviews from before we went with Trip Advisor....

"We had a most enjoyable stay at 44 South Street, St Andrews. The premises were very well maintained and more than adequate for our purposes. Mr Tobert and his family were extremely gracious and immediately attended to any query related to the premises, and to the town of St Andrews!! The bathroom was wonderfully spacious, and the bedroom and living room bright and clean. If the opportunity arose we would stay there again and also recommend it to our friends." The Palkhiwalas, New York, July 2012

"The accommodation was excellent thank you. The owners were very accommodating. The place was great, well located, clean, tidy and parking wasn't a problem." Mr Calvert July 2012

The Fife region

St Andrews is an historic Medieval town on the east coast of Scotland. It's the home of golf and has Scotland's oldest university. The West Sands is a long sandy beach, and the east sands (5 minutes away) contains the old harbour and pier. Altogether a delight.

"Not a self contained apartment"

The shared entrance hallway separates the living room/kitchen from the bedroom/bathroom. The conservatory is a big disappointment; it requires a thorough renovation and some furniture. The shared util… More

"Superb location in a neat comfortable flat."

This was a very comfortable flat for two in an excellent central location.
The flat was very comfortable and clean and the owners who shared the property were accommodating,unobtrusive and charming,
The bathroom is modern and well fitted with a good shower and bath if required.
The kitchen, although small, was more than adequate for cooking although the local eateries easily tempted you out of the kitchen.
Thoughtful little extras made by the owners,ensured a warm welcome ,which was the start of a lovely week in St Andrews.
There is no better personal recommendation than planning to return to the property at a later date.
