Golf Retreat is a spacious, detached property situated on a quiet cul-de-sac just a mile or so from the heart of St Andrews — superb for families or couples hoping to explore the beaches, cafés, golf courses, and historical attractions in the town, and also looking to enjoy a peaceful and relaxed getaway. The master bedroom boasts a super king bed, and there are also two twin rooms, meaning that the property sleeps up to six guests. All beds are zip and link for more flexibility. Two small dogs are welcome if you want to extend your party! The south facing, landscaped garden is accessed via double doors in the living room and boasts a delightful decked and patio area. The secluded garden is one of the property’s best features, and has been designed to enable guests to enjoy slow morning coffees, al fresco lunches, evening drinks, and relaxed barbecues. In the case of inclement weather, there’s a lovely dining area inside and a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, oven, and cooking utensils. The shower room is also on the ground floor, and toiletries (shampoo,shower gel,body lotion and soap) are provided.
If you prefer to eat out, there’s an amazing array of restaurants in town. Whether you’re looking for classic pub grub, sublime seafood, or family-run Italian or Indian eateries, we’re certain that you’ll find something that floats your boat. There are also some excellent takeaways if you enjoy a more informal dining experience. Check our blog for reviews of cafés and restaurants in St Andrews and the surrounding area — we’ve profiled the top spots to grab a burger and polish off a pizza, the cosiest cafés to consume a hot chocolate, and also appraised the best places for vegetarian and vegan food, too.
Throughout the property, the interior spaces are light and bright, and the cosy soft furnishings mean that you’ll immediately feel at home when staying at Golf Retreat. Linen, towels, and hairdryers are provided for your convenience, and there’s also a washing machine for any essential loads of laundry whilst you’re away. If you have a young baby or toddler, you’ll also be able to make use of the travel cot, which will free up space in your car for other holiday paraphernalia. You’ll be sure to get a good night’s sleep as there are room darkening shades and comfortable beds in each of the bedrooms!
If you’re a golfer, we’d particularly recommend checking out the St Andrews Links website and booking tee times in advance of your stay. Avid historians should definitely head to the Bell Pettigrew Museum, the Wardlaw Museum, and the R&A Golf Museum, whilst families will love the East Sands for a beach day out complete with sandcastle building, ice creams, rock pooling, and a dip in the sea — the beach is lifeguarded during the summer months. If you’ve brought your dog, we’d recommend the West Sands and the Fife Coastal path for your daily walks .
Cancellations must be notified to and received by us in writing (preferably by email) and once received we will confirm and process your cancellation request.
We offer Flexible Cancellation which removes the stress and worry of booking your holiday. You can cancel your booking and obtain a full refund of the lodging costs you have paid for up to ninety (90) days before the Holiday Commencement Date. For example, if your Holiday Commencement Date is a Saturday, then you can cancel as late as the prior Saturday. However, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible about your cancellation.
If you cancel in less than 90 days of the Holiday Commencement Date then date, you may be due a partial refund from your booking:
For this reason, we strongly recommend you take out your own travel insurance for UK holidays which covers booking cancellations. This will give you the peace of mind that you will get your money back if you need to cancel your holiday at almost the last minute. If you choose not to, you accept responsibility for any loss you may incur due to your cancellation.
