Kinness Cottage

St. Andrews
Kinness Cottage is a stunning, renovated modern home, that still maintains a cosy, traditional feel, just a few minutes’ walk to South Street, one of the main streets in St Andrews.

You enter the property through a beautiful mature, walled front garden with a manicured lawn, equipped with a fire pit/BBQ, outdoor dining area and Croquet.

Found on the ground floor, within the original boundaries of the cottage, are two bedrooms; one double with an en-suite shower room, and another twin bedroom. There is also a master shower room.

Just along the hall, in an impressive bright and spacious extension consisting of an open plan living, diner and kitchen. The original exterior wall has been impeccably maintained. Despite the stone walls, floors and high ceiling, this room is very toasty in the colder months, equipped with underfloor heating throughout and a log burning stove nestled in the corner. The floor to ceiling doors spanning almost the entire length of the lounge open entirely on to the patio dining area.

The first-floor compromises of another two bedrooms; one twin and one double and another bathroom, equipped with a shower over the bath.

Kinness Cottage also benefits from a private parking space in front of the garage – something highly sort after in St Andrews! There are also free parking spaces opposite the garage if required, also.

December 2023

We travelled with 7 people to our son’s graduation. The location was ideal as we could reach everything on foot (university building, restaurants, beach, theatre). We also cooked a lot and found everything we needed for 7 people. The evenings in the living/dining room were cosy, as was the entire house. We would like to come back.

March 2024

We loved everything about our stay at the cottage. Comfortably appointed, great space for family time and a wonderful walkable location made for a terrific visit.

September 2022

All 4 couples were delighted with everything, we had a great evening in the walled garden making full use of the barbeque and outdoor furnichure, the rooms were all perfect, everything clean an well equiped. Location was spot on and great for parking which isn’t easy in the area. All in all it was perfect for us and between us we’re probably not the easiest to please! We’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Thank you, made our week.

October 2019

We got married in St Andrews (having been students here) and the house was the perfect base for the bridal party. It was just what we were looking for – the modern extension is light and bright and was great for doing hair and make up on the morning of the wedding. All the rooms were really nice and the house felt fresh and sparkly clean. We’ll treasure great memories in this property. My 16 month old nephew also stayed and a cot and high chair was provided which was super helpful. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

June 24

This house was one of our favorites in St Andrews. It was spacious and we loved the garden. The walk to town was easy and the hosts were great.
