Set in Scotland in the Fife countryside, just 10 miles from St Andrews and 5 miles from Dundee, Sandford Country Cottages are luxury self-catering cottages & apartments which are part of Sandford House, a 'B' Listed Arts and Crafts House designed by Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott around 1902.
The properties have been restored with Arts and Crafts features such as oak beams and posts. One, two and three bedroom properties are available and all bedrooms are en-suite, with either a bath or a walk-in shower, and all are fitted with Trevi rainwater showers.
In the living areas you'll find spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining rooms with oak beams and posts, comfy seating and a dining table and chairs. There is also a flat screen TV and an iPod dock or Sonos sound system. The kitchens are fully fitted with modern appliances.
All properties have oil central heating and a wood burning stove (except Red Squirrel). Electricity, heating and one basket of logs is included in the rental cost, additional logs can be purchased from the office. Superfast WiFi is free.
A very warm welcome with knowledgeable assistance and service, which was definitely not intrusive. The cottage was beautifully furnished with nice touches but still had a relaxed feel and was very comfortable. The bed and shower were fabulous and absolutely spotless. The courtyard and gardens are stunning and the welcome pack was more than adequate. Would definitely recommend.
We loved our stay at Lady Bluebell. The unit is very spacious and comfortable with everything one could possibly want to make it a perfect stay. The basket of goodies in the kitchen was a delightful surprise. The views are fantastic and the bird watching is wonderful. Especially the 4 Woodpeckers.
William Moris said "If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful". In Sandford Country Cottages Evelyn and Ralph have achieved both. Valentine's cottage was a home from home and was equipped with everything we needed, from kitchen equipment to garden toys. And the location of the cottage is perfect, with Dundee and St Andrews just a short car journey away, offering lots to see and do. We recommend a visit to Discovery in Dundee to find out about the ship which took Scott to the Antarct...more
Sandford Country Cottages were ideal in terms of location and accommodation.... Evelyn and her husband were perfect hosts .. they were there whenever needed...were happy to advise and just chat... but left us to get on with enjoying our time in the area and in our apartment. These Cottages are perfect.
We had a wonderful stay in the Lady Bluebell, Valentine's cottage and Giddy Limit. Evelyn is a wonderful host - she was very attentive to my various requests and incredibly friendly. She and her partner do a great job of being available for questions and being very friendly but also leaving you to your own devices. The views are incredible and we were blessed with good weather. We will definitely be back.
