Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Fife & St Andrews - Forgan Cottage

3 bedrooms, open plan living/dining/kitchen area

Centrally located 5 minutes walk from the town centre, Forgan Cottage was fully renovated in 2012 to a high standard for the holiday rental market and as a private holiday home. The cottage was built circa 1896 by the Forgan family who in the late 1800s were one of the leading golf club manufacturers based in St Andrews.

The cottage has been tastefully modernised and redecorated throughout, with new kitchen and bathrooms, newly carpeted bedrooms, stairs and upper hall and oak flooring in the downstairs hall and living area.

The bright living/dining area looks out onto the back garden and the path along the Kinness Burn can be accessed through the rear garden gate.

All bedrooms have king size beds, two of which can be converted to twin beds.

There is a large centrally heated basement with washing machine, tumble dryer, additional fridge and freezer. There is also ample space to store bikes and golf clubs.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Patricia Graham

We bought the cottage because our son is studying at St Andrews University and the town is a lovely place for either a day trip or a few nights stay as it is not too far from where we live in Glasgow.

Patricia Graham purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Patricia Graham chose Fife & St Andrews

My son and I looked at several properties but Forgan Cottage had a very nice atmosphere about it and we could see it had potential to be a fabulous holiday home and place for him to stay when he is studying.

It is only a very short walk from the town centre but also has plenty of free parking outside. It is centrally located for either the West or East sands which was important as we have a dog.

What makes this cottage unique

We have fully refurbished the cottage and it is extremely comfortable either in summer or winter. New central heating and continuous hot water make it a cosy place to stay even in the depths of winter. The garden at the back looks onto the Kinness Burn which is a lovely feature in the summer.

We love spending time in the cottage as it has an extremely relaxing feel to it.

's property is wonderful. The property sleeps 3 couples very confortably and there is a large enough common area to relax. It also has a outside backyard that we BBQ. It is very convenient to all of the attractions of St Andrews. We stayed 7 nights and she was in contact with us as needed. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Fabulous holiday cottage

This was our second visit to the cottage and, as before, it was beautifully clean and comfortable. It is just a short walk from the town and beach making it a perfect place to stay in St Andrews. I would highly recommend this cottage !

Great stay in St Andrews July 2015

  • 5 of 5

The time that we spent in St Andrews and at Forgan Cottage was the highlight of our 13 day European vacation. The cottage is located close to everything and is VERY comfortable and well equipped. In addition, the owner is easy to work with and very responsive. We hope to stay there again in the future. Oh yes, the hair salon next door was a big hit with the ladies!!!
