Sleeps 4 - This lovely little two bedroom bungalow is deceptively spacious. Set back from the road and boasting a spectacular garden with access onto Lade Braes walk, 112 Hepburn Gardens is a hidden gem. Away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of the historic university town, its location is perfect for those who want to relax and unwind but remain within easy walking distance of all that the town has to offer. The property comprises two doubles bedroom, both with built-in wardrobes, and a sleek, open-plan kitchen/dining/living area. The outlook onto the fabulous and seemingly endless garden makes it a very inviting space indeed. The Lade Braes Walk can be accessed from the bottom of the garden and is a wonderful path along which to access the town, taking you past many of St Andrews' wonderful old private houses while surrounded by the area's seasonal flora and fauna. Its location means that it is far enough from the centre of town to be peaceful but close enough that the town's many attractions whether historic or sporting are still within easy reach on foot or by car. A driveway leads up to the house which sits beside another small bungalow and there is ample space for two cars to park.

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.

The accommodation comprises two double bedrooms, main bathroom and open-plan kitchen/living/dining area. The house is situated at the far end of Hepburn Gardens, about a 15 minute walk from the town centre.


On entering the house, you will find yourself in a spacious hallway which leads onto all of the rooms. To the left is the bathroom which is tiled throughout and comprises a bath with shower above, toilet and wash hand basin. It also boasts a heated towel rail and there is a power outlet for an electric shaver. Next door is the first of the two double bedrooms - the two are almost identical, with built-in wardrobes, a desk and chair.
The open-plan kitchen/living room/dining area really is the hub of this house. The living area has several comfortable seats and there is a feature fireplace. It is also equipped with a flat screen television which has Freeview channels and there is also a DVD player. The dining table has seating for 4 and is positioned for easy access to the galley kitchen. Stylish and modern, it is fully equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave and dishwasher (there is also a washing machine and tumble dryer in the house). The large open-plan space is flooded with light on sunny days thanks to several large windows which look out onto the patio and garden beyond. It also has access out to the garden through a small conservatory which also has a table and chairs - making it the perfect place to relax and admire the stunning garden.
