St Andrews Grand Retreat 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 Lodge. 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.

Welcome to St. Andrews, the "Home of Golf" and a wee slice of Scottish paradise on the enchanting east coast. Get ready for a trip that blends rich history, stunning landscapes and golf. Pack your bags and prepare for a journey through time and fairways, returning to your luxurious Oliver’s Travels holiday property at the end of the day to relax, unwind and spend special time with your family or favourite friends.

You can explore the hauntingly beautiful remains and the famous St. Rule's Tower which boasts breathtaking views. Next door, perched on a cliff overlooking the North Sea, is the historic St. Andrews Castle with a view that medieval kings would have given their crowns for. For those of you with a passion for education, the University of St. Andrews is a highlight. Founded in 1413, this picturesque campus is the Hogwarts of Scotland with stunning architecture and a famous alumni. 

Now, let's talk golf. St. Andrews Old Course is its magical epicentre. Featuring the famous Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker and as the venue for the British Open Championship, this place is a pilgrimage site for golfers worldwide.
But wait, there's more! St. Andrews isn't just about swinging clubs and exploring ruins. 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.

St. Andrews is the perfect blend of history, golf and Scottish charm. Whether you are exploring medieval ruins, perfecting your swing on legendary courses, visiting your offspring at university or sampling local delicacies, this town weaves together the past and present in a way that will make you want to don a kilt and dance a Highland fling!

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.

    We have enjoyed a fabulous stay at St. Andrews Country Retreat with our family. Nothing was too much for the team. We even enjoyed a fly past! The house was outstanding totally spotless and luxurious fittings throughout. I cannot recommend St Andrews Country Retreat more highly and we are already wishing we had another visit planned.

  • Amazing place

    Amazing place...was beautiful to wake up every morning in this house, surrounded by Scottish fields. The driving range is perfect and the pitching/putting green is artificial and fantastic for the practice.
    Thank you very much we will be back for sure.

    A magical place. The houses were exquisite, grounds amazing and there’s nothing they’ve not thought of. A ‘must see’ property, and a must return! Beautiful, well maintained and had the wow factor in every room. The place is spotless, and the beds the comfiest I’ve slept in. If you are considering staying, I would absolutely go for it. This will make a wonderful wedding venue in the future too. Thanks again for all your support and privacy!​
