Sleeps up to 11 - Situated right in the heart of the town, 6 Queen’s Gardens is a wonderful place to spend your time in St Andrews. For golfers, the property is little more than a couple of minutes drive or a 7-8 minute stroll through town to the iconic setting of the Royal and Ancient clubhouse and the 18th green/1st tee of the Old Course.The beautiful beaches are a similar distance and the university, the castle and cathedral ruins and the shops, bars and restaurants are also all almost on the front doorstep. The house is also ideally positioned for wedding groups with the Town Hall and Holy Trinity Church both within 200 yards of the house.For parties of eight or less there is a reduction in price of £50 per booking.

This is a large typical Victorian house in the middle of St Andrews. Queen's Gardens is a lovely tree & garden lined street located just off South Street (opposite Holy Trinity Church) and the house is less than one minute’s walk from the many restaurants/ bars/shops. Because of its central location it is ideally placed as a base not only for golfers but those visiting the university or exploring the historic buildings and ruins of the town. The Old Course 1st tee/18th green and the iconic Royal & Ancient Clubhouse are all a short walk away as are the town's beautiful beaches - the East & West Sands, remember the classic opening sequence in the film 'Chariots of Fire'.

4 large double bedrooms, 3 with ensuite bath/shower facilities & the 4th with a shower room immediately outside. Beautiful and elegantly proportioned drawing room; second living area and dining room leading into kitchen and opening into the rear courtyard. 120 ft private garden with patio seating area.

The property was fully restored/renovated recently and depending on your requirements, it is typically set up to sleep any combination of up to 8 people in great comfort. If required, there is also the option for 2 or, at a squeeze, 3 additional beds which can be used for shorter stays or children.

There is nowhere more unique than St Andrews. It has world renowned golf courses, miles and miles of sandy beaches, fabulous coastal walks, world-class restaurants and the history of being an esteemed University town. There is something for everybody here.
There are about 30 golf courses within 15 miles. The restaurants in the town are numerous and of excellent quality. Similarly excellent quality is to be found amongst the local shops, with a range of independent boutiques and artisan traders selling unique labels and fresh local produce from St Andrews and the surrounding area. There are music and art festivals held locally during the year.
St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his saltire cross for her flag. Before the Reformation, the town was the centre of religious life in medieval Scotland, with the bishops wielding great influence over both church and state. St Andrews is also famous as a place of learning. The university, founded in 1410-11, is the third oldest in Britain.
For many visitors, though, it's a game that draws them here, for St Andrews is the home of golf, the sport having been played here for some 600 years. The Old Course is arguably the most famous golf course in the world, and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still the ruling body for the rules of golf. Fittingly, the Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005 and 2010. The next staging of the Open in St Andrews is set for 2015, be sure to book your accommodation early.
There are 7 fabulous golf courses within the town and many Championship Links courses in neighbouring villages.
St Andrews is a town designed for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore – on foot – and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.
There are some ancient historic buildings to explore (the Castle and Cathedral are must-sees), museums (including the British Golf Museum), as well as the stunning beaches with all they have to offer and the pier - spectacular for a walk at sunset.

Private Garden

Queen's Gardens is typical within St Andrews in that many of the houses have a private garden opposite the house. No. 6 enjoys a 130ft garden with patio seating, dining and BBQ area and golf practice/warm up net. This is potentially an important start to the day as several of the courses in town don't actually have a practice range facility anywhere near the 1st tee.
