The Space

The Balone Garden Cottage is a luxury retreat with spectacular views over the St Andrews countryside and a wood burning stove. The cottage has been finished to the highest standard and comfortable sleeps 2 in a double bedroom with access to the patio via the French doors. The open-plan kitchen lounge is peaceful whether the bifold doors are open to the fresh air or cosy with the wood burner. Free Wifi and Parking. Property features a Dyson Purifier which
purifies, humidifies and cools the bedroom in the cottage. The property has it's own entrance on the ground floor and free parking for one car at the end of the driveway. The accommodation layouts are as follows:

Ground Floor - 1 double bedroom with luxury mattress and with full wardrobe. Perfect for guests with mobility requirements. The bathroom has a large walk in shower with a Lusso hand wash basin, a wall hung WC and a delightful Spanish caustic tile floor. Whilst there is no garden available with the cottage, there is an enclosed patio garden via the French doors in the bedroom or via the bifold doors in the lounge. The kitchen has a dishwasher, a fridge, a Smeg ceramic 2 ring hob, and a high spec oven/microwave. There is no washing machine available for guest use. In the lounge, there is a small dining table with a Smart TV and logs are provided for the wood burner. Guests will have full access to the entire property. No rooms will be off limits and all contents within the flat are there for our guests use including wifi, the TV and the cooking implements. Smoking is not permitted within the property. I expect all guests to respect the property and our neighbours. No pets are allowed.

The Neighbourhood

St Andrews is home to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the famous Old Course. Its amenities include Scotland's oldest university, founded in 1413, beautiful award winning beaches, historic buildings, including the ruins of the cathedral, castle and St Rule's Tower and a wide variety of specialist shops and restaurants. Renowned worldwide as "the home of golf” St Andrews has seven world-class links courses and others in the area include The Dukes, Kingsbarns and the Fairmont St Andrews complex.

This is a 5 Mins drive to the town centre and 10 mins to the Links golf courses. The owners live in the adjacent accommodation so don't be frightened if you bump into them when departing/arriving.
