Steprock Cottage

St. Andrews
A tastefully decorated, hidden gem perched along Gillespie Wynd, Steprock Cottage could not be more perfectly positioned. Nestled on the pedestrian path connecting The Scores and North Street, Steprock is peacefully set back from the throughfare, amongst its walled boundaries. The Old Course is just a short 2 minute walk away, with all of St Andrews’ popular restaurants, cafés and shops just 200m away.

The front, paved garden is equipped with a table and chairs to allow guests to make the most of the St Andrews summer sun.

Entering through the vestibule, the ground floor consists of a super king or twin bedroom, as well as the master bathroom, equipped with a shower cubicle and separate bath tub. Just along the hall, the property opens in to a bright, open plan living room, kitchen, and diner. The cosy living area boasts patio doors leading to the front garden; a gas fire for chilly winter evening; and a piano, because why not?! The modern yet country-home style kitchen is spacious and bright, with an built in, bench style dining table nestled in the corner.

The first floor encompasses a master double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, as well as the third, twin bedroom.

We arrived early in St Andrews and it was no problem to check in before 4 pm. The housekeeper was very flexible. Very cute little house with South East facing terrace. loved every second. Ideal for Golfers! Everything available on foot. And beautifully situated directly behind the Scores!!!

April 2023

Absolutely lovely and quaint little place. Everything within St Andrews was within walking distance…especially to the 1st tee box at The Old Course! We had a wonderful week. It was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you!

January 2022

Steprock cottage was a perfect base for a long weekend in St Andrew’s. The cottage is a stones throw to the Old Course and a short 5 minute walk to the main activity within St Andrew’s. The cottage was clean and exactly as described. I would highly recommend for future stays.

July 2021

We loved our stay. The cottage is in immaculate condition and there was plenty of space for the 4 adults and 2 children staying. The bedrooms are a good size and the bathrooms are modern with excellent shower facilities. The living area and kitchen help to give it a real family feel as people are preparing food or tidying up from meals. The location itself is incredible. The views from The Scores and proximity to The Old Course and the West sands was a massive factor in our enjoyment. I can also thoroughly recommend the options for eating out around the old town. There are numerous restaurants to suit all preferences and we were delighted with every meal we had. Forgan’s was probably the best meal that we had and is worth booking. Little Italy was also well worth a visit. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back in the future!

July 2023

Great property, exactly as described in a wonderful location. Very responsive hosts. Would definitely book again.
