“Excellent house for a group vacation”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Hawkswood House with a group of nine friends in August 2016, and enjoyed everything very much. The house is very comfortable, and the short game area and hydro spa were great additions. It was nice to stay out in the countryside, with a short drive to explore St Andrews and other towns in the area. I also enjoyed talking with John, who was very accommodating. Excellent place to stay!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed at Hawkswood House with extended familŷ of six adults, two teenagers and two younger children. All of us had a really wonderful three days. We felt so at home that we were happy to stay at Hawkswood rather than explore the surrounding area. Everyone took full advantage of the fabulous Spa and the gents and younger members of the group made good use of the chipping and putting area.
We brought far too much from home as Mary-Jo had provided everything apart from the main food items. A really superb range of toiletries were provided to the delight of the ladies.
Our stay went in too quickly and we would love to return again.
Worth a visit is Cromers Fish and Chip shop in St Andrews, must be the best fish I have tasted in many a long year.

“Incredible”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Hawkswood House for 3 nights and everything about the staff and the house was impeccable. Mary-Jo and her father could not of done more for us and were always on hand to help us and make our stay as pleasant as possible. The house is incredible, if you are lucky enough to get a chance to stay here please do, you won't regret it. There is everything you need and more with nothing to fault, we will all be returning again next year!

“Outstanding from start to finish.”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed in Hawkswood House for our daughter's wedding at Kinkell Byre. Since she wasn't being married near our home we wanted a base for the Bridal party. Mary-Jo was a joy to work with and did many gestures which were way above what we expected. - Driving and collecting us from St. Andrews for a family evening meal and even driving the Bridesmaids to the wedding venue. It couldn't have worked out better. The accomodation even surpassed the lovely photographs. We had 10 people staying in the 5 ensuite rooms and it was extremely spacious . The hot-tub , golf course and outdoor BBQ were definite highlights ! The magnificent conservatory was the ideal "morning of the wedding " room where all five bridesmaids , Bride and Bride's mum could have their hair and make-up done in loads of space and good natural light . We had a lunch party for 40 the day after the wedding and it was the perfect party venue with a golf competition for entertainment!
I could go on and on about this very special place - if you want 5 star accomodation with 5 star service , privacy and space for a group to be together but also thoroughly relax - this is for you!

“5 star property -absolutely amazing house”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a fantastic stay at Hawkswood House for my husbands special birthday . My first impression in one word - WOW . The house is amazing from start to finish with wonderful facilities . Everyone in our party agreed and we all can't wait to return . The house was spotless and Mary Jo has thought about every little detail . It is set in stunning grounds with wonderful outdoor facilities.

It is a large property that can fit 10 easily and there are so many public rooms and wonderful facilities . There is something for everyone and also excellent outside facilities - the short game golf area and hot tub were two of our parties favourites and were put to good use .

There is plenty of room for you all to spread out if you wish , Sky packages in the conservatory and living room which means no need to argue over kids tv , husbands tv etc . Also the docking stations came in handy .

The bedrooms are fantastic and stunning with the comfiest beds ,luxury bedding ,stunning en suites and beautiful complimentary toiletries available .

There is also a 16 seater bus available to take you to St Andrews with great service from John .

It's hard to describe just how perfect Hawkswood House is but we are glad we found it and look forward to our next visit .

“Gorgeous house, setting, & services!”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

At first we thought HH was too far from town. Then we discovered true service with a van drop-off & pick-up service. HH far exceeded our experiences staying at luxury hotels in St Andrews. We could not have had a more comfortable, spacious, convenient, beautiful place for our family retreat to Scotland. From 7 to 82--all members of the family were delighted with every aspect of our stay here. Thanks, Mary-Jo & John, for seeing to our every need! We look forward to a return trip & are telling our friends about our amazing visit there!
