Overview

Complimentary BBQ & Champagne!
Ideal for Kids Hot Tub All Bedrooms En-Suite

St Andrews Country Retreat is located in the hamlet of Peat Inn, just a few miles from St. Andrews, a place considered by many to be the home of golf. The retreat makes a truly fabulous base for golfing groups, corporate gatherings, couples and families who are looking to stay in style while sharing a celebration or participating in a sporting event.

The retreat’s accommodation is spread across two luxurious, five-bedroom properties, making it an ideal choice for families or groups of friends or holidaying together, enabling guests to enjoy time together while still retaining plenty of space and privacy. An additional eight guests can be accomodated at the on-site bed and breakfast, raising total capacity to an impressive twenty-eight.

The houses have both been designed with high attention to detail and feature modern interiors with lavish furnishings. On the ground floor there are spacious entertaining areas, the perfect space for the whole group to gather and discuss the action on the course and kitchens equipped with all the tools a budding chef could possibly need. Both houses boast five, en-suite bedrooms, four in each house are zip & link and so can be set up as either doubles or twins on request.

There is no better place to spend a Summer evening than on the terrace enjoying a barbecue and a sun downer al fresco. For keen golfers, St Andrews Country Retreat is the ultimate destination. It comes with two private short game golf areas, a private 270-yard driving range and even private hydro spas to relax those muscles afterwards! The short game areas were designed by a golf professional and make the pefect practice areas before heading to St Andrews!

Owner Profile

Property name
St Andrews Country Retreat

Property owners
John and Jo-Anne

How long have you owned the property?

We have owned the estate since 2007

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?

The properties were made up of two plots when we bought them with derelict outbuildings in place. We loved their setting in the countryside and the fabulous panoramic views.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

Yes, the estate dates back to the 1840’s. The second house's main sitting room was used as a horse mill by using animal power to grind grain.

Do you have a favourite room in the property?
No! They are all lovely.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do? Visit the famous Swilcan Bridge in St Andrews which is on the 18th hole of the Old Course at the Home of Golf. A golfer or not this famous bridge is one of the most iconic settings in golf and it has felt the footsteps of the true greats.
Really eat?  Fish and Chips from the award winning Anstruther Fish Bar.
Really see? Take a road trip around the fabulous coastline from St Andrews to Elie and visit all of the picturesque small working fishing villages.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
There’s a great Michelin-starred restaurant on our door step called The Peat Inn. You do have to book in advance but it is really worth a visit if you are lucky enough to secure a table.
