Hidden Gem
May 2019

Heywood Cottage is a perfect little retreat in St. Andrews. Tucked away in its own gardens, just off the main drag, everything is virtually on your doorstep yet you don’t feel as though you’re in the city centre. Comfy rooms, more than adequate kitchen and dining areas and Sky tv/broadband top off the ideal holiday sanctuary.

May 2023

Great cottage ideally located in the centre of St Andrews with everything close by, 5 min walking from the Old Course. We all enjoy our stay, charming cottage, clean, calm, perfect for both golfers and families

Quality house in a secluded location
March 2019

Everything in Heywood Cottage is of a high standard, from the well equipped kitchen to the comfortable beds. Beautifully furnished and decorated, with two shower rooms, which is a bonus when sharing with friends. The house is set in a secluded location behind one of the main streets, so is quiet, but handy for all amenities. I would highly recommend this property, it is a lovely place in which to spend time.

September 2023

Excellent location, great privacy and able to walk everywhere. Very comfortable home. Great for our family of four. Highly recommend.

June 2022

Great place to stay for a golf foursome – close to several St. Andrews Links courses and pubs and restaurants. Folks at Kingask were great to work with – helped with a 1 day delay due to airline issues.
