It boasts a stunning location, surrounded by 65 acres of tranquil countryside.

St Andrews Country House is located just outside the very pretty hamlet of Peat Inn. The hamlet is centred on the Michelin starred restaurant The Peat Inn which was built in the mid 1700’s. It is 7 miles south east of Cupar and 6 miles south west of St Andrews, Scotland’s world-famous Home of Golf. St Andrews is the Kingdom of Fife’s historic gem, famous also for its university, medieval streets and fantastic traditional buildings including St Andrews Cathedral. This superb golf capital boasts 10 fantastic courses including the renowned Old Course.

St Andrews Country House is perfect for celebrations with its many beautiful entertainment spaces. It is beautifully furnished and decorated throughout with tartan themes in most rooms. The styling is elegant and extremely homely, rich in taste and colour. The ground floor is home to a very stylish open plan kitchen and dining room, a stunning sun room which is set up for indoor dining and lounging, a beautiful living room, 3 comfortable bedroom suites including a stunning master suite and a laundry room. The designer kitchen is a chef’s dream with excellent oversized appliances, a wine fridge and everything you could hope for to prepare gourmet meals. The dining area is very glamorous. The living room boasts a cosy wood-burning stove, television with Sky channels and doors that open to a patio with your very own luxury hydro spa. The sun room is enormous and drowned in sunlight. It is a fantastic entertaining space which looks out and opens to your private short game golf area and pretty borders. The lower bedroom suites are gorgeous little havens with striking oversized headboards, luxury linens and immaculate ensuite bathrooms. The master also enjoys a walk-in dressing room.

Upstairs you will find another beautiful living space with a wood-burning stove, sumptuous furnishings and access to a roof terrace as well as the two remaining bedroom suites, an office space and a contemporary family bathroom with a bath. Four of the bedrooms in this house enjoy zip and link beds that can be set up as either large doubles or twins on request and the final offers a superb double bed.

Outside guests can pamper themselves in the private hydro spa, enjoy alfresco dining on the terrace, enjoy a short golf game with its 5 pitching mats, 6 holes and 2 bunkers, access the Retreat’s private 270 yard golf driving range or just relax with cocktails enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

    St Andrews Country House is located just outside of St Andrews, the golfing capital of Scotland in the small hamlet of Peat Inn. Guests can enjoy a delicious gastronomic delight at The Peat Inn, the hamlet’s famous Michelin starred restaurant.

    St Andrews is extremely popular for its landscaped, prestigious golf courses but also offers excellent shopping, some wonderful art galleries, interesting museums and spectacular golden beaches. Visitors enjoy fine dining in the atmospheric restaurants as well as delicious ice creams from the local ice cream parlours. There are many exciting and interesting attractions from St Andrews Cathedral and St Andrews Castle to Scotland’s Secret Bunker. The remains of St Andrews Cathedral are a must-see for any visitor. It was once the largest church in Scotland and the museum is home to a fantastic collection of medieval sculptures and relics which were found on the site. For amazing views across St Andrews and Fife, visitors can climb St Rule’s Tower which dates from the 12th century. St Andrews Castle enjoys a history spanning 450 years. It has been a bishop’s palace, a fortress and a state prison.

    The Old Course is the golfing location which every golfer aspires to visit. It is one of the most famous golf courses in the world and visitors can join an expert guide to walk around the 1st, 17th and 18th holes, walking in the footsteps of golfing legends and experiencing a player’s eye view. There are ballots to play on the Old Course but you can book in advance to play on some of the other golfing wonders including The Castle Course, The New Course, the Jubilee Course, the Eden Course and the Strathtyrum Course.

    Another popular adventure is to take one of the St Andrews Ghost Tours which introduce visitors to many haunted locations including the Cathedral and St Andrews University.

    The Fife Pilgrim Way is a wonderfully scenic long-distance walk through the ancient Kingdom of Fife. Visitors can follow in the footsteps of pilgrims who flocked to Fife between the 11th and 16th centuries to be near to the bones of St Andrew, one of Jesus’ disciples. It was considered to be the next best thing to the Holy Land, joining ranks with the Santiago de Compostela and Rome.

    Dundee is only half an hour from St Andrews Country House. It is located on the Firth of Tay estuary and enjoys a regenerated waterfront with two nautical museums, RRS Discovery, Captain Scott’s Antarctic expedition ship and HM Frigate Unicorn, the 19th century warship. There are many museums including Verdant Works which celebrates the city’s jute manufacturing heritage and The McManus, Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum which displays art and archaeological finds.

You can dive into the serene waters of West Sands Beach, made famous in "Chariots of Fire" or take a stroll along the bustling High Street, sprinkled with boutique shops, charming cafes and characterful pubs that have seen more ceilidh dancing than you can shake a sporran at. The Fife Coastal Path offers breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding countryside and birdwatchers should grab their binoculars and head to the Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve for a symphony of diverse birdlife and tranquil woodlands.

    St. Andrews is the gateway to Fife's enchanting landscapes. You can explore the fishing villages of Anstruther and Pittenweem, where the seafood is so fresh it practically jumps onto your plate or hop over to the historic town of Cupar for medieval architecture and a bustling market square.
