Everything was good. A taxi into and out of St Andrews can make an evening meal expensive. Better if one of you is on soft drinks: Good location for touring the area not just for the golfers Hosts were helpful when we needed an early breakfast on our last day

This B&B is in St Michaels, about a 10 minute drive to St. Andrews. It is in the countryside, quiet and peaceful. Walking distance to one pub.

This B&B is a true gem. Set in an area just beyond St. Andrews, the Pinewood Country House is a wonderful refuge for rest and relaxation.

Stayed here for three nights with friends. We were in extremely comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Karen was very helpful and accommodating and provided beautifully cooked and presented breakfasts. We couldn't have wanted for more. Pinewood is a lovely house with an interesting history. We loved the original features which have been so carefully retained.
