Holiday Rental House
The Beehouse is a beautifully presented three bedroom holiday house located just a short drive from the historic burgh of St Andrews, famous for its world class golf courses and stunning beaches. The property forms part of a recently converted steading building adjacent to the owners' home; with three double bedrooms (one downstairs) and three bathrooms it is ideal for families, golfers and couples alike. The house was completed in August 2012 and retains many original features including a quirky backdrop to the woodburning stove in the living room; recessed stone 'beeboles' where old-fashioned straw beehives were over-wintered. The Beehouse enjoys breathtaking south-facing views across arable farmland and woodland and is in a very peaceful private location. There is a patio area accessed ...The Beehouse is a beautifully presented three bedroom holiday house located just a short drive from the historic burgh of St Andrews, famous for its world class golf courses and stunning beaches.

I have never stayed in a nicer holiday house, it is just wonderful. We loved the peace and quiet, all the bedrooms are fantastic and each room having a bathroom was a great bonus. We enjoyed the gardens too for family cricket matches, great fun!...More
