St. Andrews

There are about 30 golf courses within 15 miles of St Leonards Lodge. The restaurants in St Andrews are numerous and of an excellent quality as is the local shopping. There are music and art festivals held locally during the year.

Today's St Andrews is famous throughout the world as the home of golf. As originally played it had origins in a continental game a little like croquet. It was clearly well established here by 1457, for in that year King James II banned golf because it diverted too much time away from the much more useful pastime of archery practice. The ban seems to have been largely ignored.

St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his saltire cross for her flag. Before the Reformation, the town was the centre of religious life in medieval Scotland, with the bishops wielding great influence over both church and state. St Andrews is also famous as a place of learning. The university, founded in 1410-11, is the third oldest in Britain.

For many visitors, though, it's a game that draws them here, for St Andrews is the home of golf, the sport having been played here for some 600 years. The Old Course is arguably the most famous golf course in the world, and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still the ruling body for the rules of golf. Fittingly, the Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005 and 2010. The next staging of the Open in St Andrews is set for 2015, be sure to book your accommodation early.

There are 7 fabulous golf courses within the town and many Championship Links courses in neighbouring villages.

ST Andrews is a town meant for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore – on foot – and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.

There are some ancient historic buildings to explore, museums as well as the stunning beaches with all they have to offer.

"Fabulous place to stay"

A lovely little hideaway just outside the town - 10 minutes walk from the centre of St Andrews. Beautifully finished with a gorgeous living space downstairs and a wonderful bedroom with en-suite. Couldn't have been any better - looking to book for next year already

"Top St. Andrews Location"

Stayed for 3 nights in early January 15. Found the accommodation to be as described, very comfortable, well equipped and good location - 10 minutes walk into town. Only improvements could suggest would be lighting - in main living area and bathroom - possibly replacing some of down lighters? Overall a very positive experience and have recommended to friends and clooeagues.

"Excellent - go there!"

A superb little cottage very close to the heart of St Andrews. Highly recommended for a couple (four could be housed if sofas slept on).

Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted to hear that you had a lovely holiday and that you enjoyed the lodge. We hope to welcome you back in the near future.

"Nice accommodation"

Lovely little property with great amenities. Very close proximity to the town centre which is great. The Fife Coastal path walk we did was ace. Only issue with the property was a lack of privacy and outside space.

"The Perfect Location in St. Andrews"

This is a perfect rental for a single person or couple to stay for short or long vacations or work stints in St. Andrews for the following reasons: 1. The rental is clean, well-equipped, and excellently furnished. Everything works as it should, and for those visiting in colder months, the heating system is perfect. There is a washer and dryer, dishwasher, coffee machine, water boiler, oven, stove, etc. that make this truly a "home away from home." The bathroom is modern, spacious and clean, as is the upstairs bedroom. There is plenty of space for entertaining and relaxing, including multiple sofas and a large dining table. I am a bit of a spoiled traveler (no roughing it for me), and this place is perfect for someone who wants all of the comforts and conveniences of home at an excellent price. 2. The location is perfect and there is no need for a car. You can easily walk to the bus station and to the center of town easily and quickly (10-15 minutes at the most). St. Andrews is a very small place - the entire town and outer areas can be reached by foot, bike or bus. Everything is accessible from this location, from the town center, the beach, the wonderful coastal Fife walking route, all of the sites and attractions, etc. For those staying a bit longer, this location is down the street from the university gym, and there are running paths everywhere. I particularly liked Lade Braes for running, and St. Andrews (and Fife more generally) is highly conducive to running, walking and biking. 3. The location is peaceful and quiet. Because it is not on one of the busy streets of the town center, you can enjoy the tranquil aspects of St. Andrews. Further, the guest lodge has a private entrance and is separated from the main house (in which the owners live), which gives guests complete independence and privacy. 4. The owners are professional, friendly, and helpful. The contract is set up through Fife Cottages and all instructions for using the house and its appliances are available and easy to understand. I would highly recommend this location to those who are looking for a high-quality living arrangement in St. Andrews. I look forward to returning in the future.

Thank you very much for your review. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

"Everything you need, within walking distance of all St Andrews has to offer"

A very spacious, self-contained residence in the grounds of the owner's house. very well equipped, modern, comfortable, spotlessly clean, very fast WiFi, Sky TV... We were made very welcome with our two small dogs. The good weather made for a perfect week, but this would be a great base for a visit at any time of year. The small patio area is currently open to the the garden but is to be made dog-secure soon. Can't fault it and hope to return.

"excellent accomodation lacked a view"

Lodge was stunning Close to all shops,pubs restaurants and beaches Due to being part of owners garden lacked a view, despite lovely patio windows No garden for the dog as it was the owners and they had a dog of their own

"Excellent - Central - Dog-friendly"

We had the pleasure of spending a month at St Leonards Lodge with our two dogs in tow. The house is very comfortable - with every modern amenity provided. The upstairs bedroom and bathroom is especially delightful - full of light and a really comfy bed. We felt right at home from the very first day. The large enclosed garden was terrific for our two dogs. The house is a short, pleasant stroll from the centre of town, golf-courses and other facilities. Owners, Debbie and Ian could not do enough for us and we appreciated their advice, good-humour and generosity at every turn. Highly recommended.
