Bell Rock Cottage, Boarhills Nr St. Andrews
Situated three miles from the historic town of St. Andrews. This cottage forms part of a former holiday complex, where the apartments are now privately owned. This pet friendly cottage, all on one level, commands truly stunning unrivalled views from its open plan lounge over the Kittocks links golf course to the sea beyond, on a good day you can see right across the mouth of the Tay to Carnoustie and the Bell Rock lighthouse, which the cottage has been named after.
The cottage has been tastefully decorated and offers a great base to explore the countryside, with the fife coastal path easily accessible and within a mile out of the back gate. The property boasts an open plan lounge and well equipped kitchen with patio doors leading to an extensive, fully fenced garden area, from where you can spot a huge variety of birds and wildlife, watch the golf and appreciate the beautiful scenery. There is plenty of space for kids to explore. There is a good sized family shower-room with walk in shower and two twin bedrooms (with ample space to move furniture to suit different parties). There is also a mains wired fire detection system and ample parking guests and visitors.
