The cosy lounge of the property leads directly onto our inviting Dining Conservatory that seats 6 people comfortably for meals,etc. This room overlooks the patio and lawned rear private garden-(gardens are very rare in the centre of St Andrews- so this is a bonus if travelling to Scotland in the summer months) as it's an extended living space that guests have found to be perfect for relaxing and outdoor entertaining! The enclosed garden area is a sheltered sun trap as it has a high stone built wall for privacy. The cottage has a modern kitchen on the ground floor with top quality granite work surfaces.We have integrated appliances and a very useful early morning breakfast bar. We supply various teas,coffees,spices etc and provide lots of cleaning materials e.g. dishwasher tabs & laundry powders.
