Very Good

“A great house in a very central location”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

A lovely 2 bedroom house in a central location within walking distance of the beech, shops, sights etc. A modern light and well fitted out property with wet rooms and a raised sitting room with access out to a decked area and the garden. Sheila and Ian where very welcoming and helpful to us during our stay. We would happily recommend this property.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much indeed for your kind and thoughtful comments

“Stunning location and property in a very special town.”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2013

Just returned from a wonderful stay in this Cottage located in the heart of St. Andrews. Sheila is a marvellous hostess and even offered to keep my luggage until the property was ready for me as I was moving out of my Hotel earlier that morning. The property is spotless, bright and airy and has everything needed for a self catering break including a lovely decking area and garden. I thoroughly recommend the Cottage. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

“Wonderful Accommodation”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2013

This is a really lovely property in an excellent location. It is situated within walking distance of the town centre, yet sitting in the garden on a summer's evening we could have been miles from anything. It would be easy to imagine that in winter it would take on another equally charming character. The owners, Sheila and Ian, are very welcoming and on hand if required. We cannot recommend The Whins Cottage enough.

“Home from Home Accomodation; just perfect!”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

Great location being so close to the local amenities and the golf courses. The property was spotlessly clean, superbly equipped with everything anyone could need for a comfortable, relaxing stay. We even managed to enjoy a glass of wine on the decking in lovely, warm sunshine. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property to friends and family. The owners seem to have thought of everything, making this a fabulous place to stay.

“Fantastic place”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2013

The location of the house is ideal as everything within the town is within walking distance, as is the beach and the old & new golf courses. The house itself is 1st class in its layout, fixtures & fittings. It has everything that you could want. the adjoining properrties are very quite. The only down side is that there is no parking associated with the house, but there is limited free parking spaces a couple of minutes walk from the house.
