"Ideal getaway if you enjoy peace, quiet, nature and yet want access to all the facilities of St Andrews"

We loved our stay at Flowers of May Cottage. We felt immediately at home.
The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with lots of additional things we found useful, e.g. a vacuum flask we used on a picnic at Tentsmuir Forest. Nicely furnished and well equipped throughout. Very close to St Andrews for shopping and dining out. Would recommend to others and may well book for next year. Lovely coastal walking nearby.

"Comfort, Peace and Quiet"

Arriving at the Flowers of May cottage was a treat. It was close enough to Saint Andrews but at the end of a busy day it was lovely to come back to the silence at the cottage. Very well equipped and comfortable. Lovely sitting outside watching the wildlife with a wee cuppa and a good book. Would certainly recommend this cottage to friends and would be our first choice when we return to Saint Andrews.
