Sleeps 8 - Auchterlonie Lodge is a fabulous 4 bedroomed semi-detached house in the hamlet of Mount Melville on the outskirts of St Andrews. Mount Melville sits in an elevated position to the west of St Andrews and benefits from views over The Duke's golf course and beyond to the town and St Andrews Bay. The property has just undergone an extensive renovation and now provides a fantastic base for a group of golfers, a group of friends or a family to enjoy a wonderful break in idyllic surroundings. It has 4 bedrooms, all en-suite, three can be either king size double or twin and the fourth is a fixed twin. There is a beautiful open plan living/kitchen/diner which provides a fantastic hub at the centre of the house. There are garden areas to the front and back of the house with a rear patio that is just perfect for outside dining. The house has plenty of off street parking and all in all is a marvellous base from which to explore all that this area has to offer.

There is nowhere quite like 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, 2010 and 2015.
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.

Auchterlonie Lodge lies in the beautiful hamlet of Mount Melville on the western outskirts of St Andrews. The semi-detached house has undergone a complete renovation and is new to the holiday rental market. It occupies a beautiful location overlooking The Duke's golf course and benefits from private parking and generous gardens and outside space.

The renovation has been undertaken very much with self-catering in mind with four bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities and the ground floor bedroom being suitable for guests with mobility issues. The owners have sought to provide everything that might be needed for a comfortable and rewarding stay.

On entering the house you come into a spacious hall with a cloakroom/toilet. Straight ahead is access to a utility room with a washing machine and a large stainless steel sink ideal for cleaning down golf clubs.

Turning left off the hall takes you into the living/kitchen/dining space. This room is the full depth of the house and provides a large living area with a beautiful bay window, comfortable seating for eight and a Smart TV. The kitchen is, as you would expect, fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave. There is a dining table that will comfortably take eight people. There are patio doors taking you out to the rear garden patio where you will find garden furniture.

Back inside there is a double bedroom through a short corridor off the living room. This bedroom has an en-suite shower room that is really a wet-room and as such this is the ideal "suite" if one of the party had any mobility issues. The bedroom has a set of patio doors that lead to a small terrace. The bedroom can be set up as either a king size or twin beds.

The stairs are off the kitchen and take you up to three further bedrooms, two have the king size/twin option and the third is a fixed twin. Each bedroom has its own en-suite shower room. Each of the bedrooms has plenty of storage and hanging space.

There are lovely garden grounds to the front of the house and the driveway will provide parking for up to three cars.

All in all the owners have created a wonderful holiday property in this peaceful setting just a short drive from St Andrews town centre. It will make a superb base for you to experience St Andrews and the beautiful East Neuk of Fife.
