The Space 

 The Bothy is an architectural haven only 5 mins drive to St Andrews and comfortably sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms with 1 bathroom. The homely open plan living room and kitchen, with bifold doors leading to a relaxing patio area and garden creates a relaxing ambiance and has spectacular views over the Fife countryside. The property has it's own entrance on the ground floor and ample free parking directly outside for several cars. The accommodation layouts are as follows:  Ground Floor - 1 twin bedroom. Perfect for guests with mobility requirements (only small steps). Family bathroom. Open plan kitchen dining area. Access out to the enclosed patio, decking and garden.   First Floor - 1 twin or double in the original part of the building.

There is a dry store in the garden area for storing golf clubs and shoes. Please do not wear spikes in the house. The umbrella for the outside table and chairs is also kept in the garden dry store. 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. Golfers will also have access to the garden dry store to keep golf clubs. Smoking is not permitted within the property. I expect all guests to respect the property and our neighbours. No pets are allowed unless by prior arrangement.
