The Wayfarer's House

St. Andrews
Just a hop, skip and a jump to East Sands beach, The Wayfarer’s House is an idyllic St Andrews retreat.

This perfectly cosy home welcomes you in to the lounge and dining area, which provides access to the kitchen area to the rear. The spacious living area is flooded with natural light, with French doors opening up in to its private back garden. No winter day is complete without a log-burning stove – return home from a long (and possibly wet!) day out, to warm up beside the fire with a hot chocolate in hand.

The kitchen, which retains its original stone wall, comes equipped with all you could require for your self-catered stay.

The first floor encompasses a twin or super king bedroom, a double bedroom and the master bathroom with a shower over the bath. Up another set of stairs, the second floor houses the largest double bedroom and another bathroom equipped with a shower cubicle, and sea views!
To the rear of the property off the kitchen and living room, is a private and completely enclosed garden. Just around the corner from The Wayfarer’s House, you have access to East Sands beach and the famous Cheesy Toast Shack, as well as a wonderful off-road walk down to the Cathedral ruins and straight in to town.

The Wayfarer's is set over three floors and briefly compromises of:

Ground floor:
  • Lounge with wood burning stove

First floor:
  • One twin or superking bedroom
  • One double bedroom
  • Master bathroom with shower over bath

Family friendly cottage close to beach
September 2019

Great 3 bedroom cottage only 2 mins walk to East Sands beach. We stayed as a family of 5 and it was perfect for us, the rooms were spotlessly clean and it had all the facilities we needed for a long weekend stay.

August 2023

Absolutely brilliant location, can only be a minutes walk to the East Sands beach and about 15 mins to town centre. As always had a great stay as with all Kingask properties we’ve stayed in before hence why we always return. Very well presented, clean and with all the required amenities. Would definitely stay here again. Had such a lovely time. An added bonus was being a stones throw away from the Toastie Shack on the beach and a few doors down from the New Inn. Thoroughly recommend.

August 2023

Wayfarers ,again well equipped and the advantage of being so close to east sands for the children. We were able to leave the kyacks blown up in the back garden

Home from home
June 2020

We’ve had the real pleasure of staying here both pre and post the renovations. We loved it before, but it really is fantastic now. The living space downstairs is a really good size, and the extra bedroom at the back is lovely. The house is clearly very well looked after, and the garden is a little sun trap – it might be 14oC at the beach, but it feels like 20oC in the garden! It’s proximity to the beach is excellent. All up, we loved our stay and look forward to our next St. Andrews visit.

May 2021

Excellent accomodation. I know St Andrews well and this was by far the best accomodation I have stayed in. Great location, next to the beach, very clean, comfortable house with lovely garden. Highly recommended.
