                              A cosy and charming cottage in a peaceful location right by the sea

                              5 of 5
                              The cottage was clean and well presented with all the comforts of home supplied to us. Perfect location right by the harbour in a quaint village. St. Monans has great walks by the sea and a well stocked local shop. We were wonderfully at home the entire stay and would highly recommend as a rural escape with easy links to St. Andrews.

                              A lovely cottage; very welcoming

                              We had a lovely stay at Forgan Cottage. The property had everything we needed, was very well maintained and very comfortable. It was so convenient for the town of St Andrews and made our stay very enjoyable.

                              From the very first contact to leaving after a week everything is just amazing. We blame our selves for not understanding how to get som heat in the house (how hard can it be) We will give it a new try 2015 and hope for less rain so we don´t need it :) Clean, spacious and inviting this house offers everything you need for a fantastic stay in St Andrews. How ever i wouldn´t recommend it, then it might be taken the next time i want to book it... Jokes aside it´s fantastic and we will be back, same week next year and the year after that!
