About the property

2 stunning central properties

These stunning properties provide a calm and comfortable retreat near to the town's West Port.

23 Argyle Street is a ground floor south facing flat sleeping up to 3 people in its sumptuous bedroom with king size bed and additional large sofa bed in the sitting room.

Wilson House at 27 Argyle Street is new to the rental market and is a beautiful south facing character town house sleeping 5 in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms.The properties are next to each other and are centrally located, only one minute’s walk from St. Andrew’s West Port.

On arriving at the West Port you will instantly be amongst the bustle of the shops, bars and cafes of this lively university town. You only have about 5-10 minutes walk from the first hole of The Old Course and because of its central location all parts of town are easily accessible on foot. A minute or two in the opposite direction of the West Port you will find the Lade Braes which offers leafy walks beside the Kinness Burn.

Local activities in and around St Andrews, Central Scotland: St. Andrews has a wealth of historic monuments to visit. Wander around the University quadrangles and museum and really feel the sense of history that envelops you. St. Andrews has built its name on golf and the town and surrounding area will not disappoint.

Parking - it should be noted that parking is available in the Argyle Street car parks very close to the property - £3.60 per day or you can park nearer the tennis courts for free. The parking area you see through the bedroom window is strictly a private car park for residents of the nearby Argyle Court.

Once outwith St. Andrews head off to Crail via Kingsbarns and the scenery will enchant you. Visit Kingsbarns golf course, as a player or a walker you will find the surroundings breathtaking. Move on to the fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Pitenweem and discover the harbours, pottery and art exhibitions in these seaside towns. Carry on down the coast to Elie with its award winning sandy beaches and take time to draw breath in The Ship Inn down at the harbour.

About Mrs Suki Stobbs

Having been a student here at St. Andrews it is good to continue my links with the town. I was born and brought up in Scotland and property is my business and holiday lets are part of that business. My husband was born and brought up in St. Andrews so is keen to promote his town to the wider world.

Mrs Suki Stobbs purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Mrs Suki Stobbs chose Fife & St Andrews

These properties were originally part of my husband's family business - Wilson & Co. - whose brewery premises used to be out the back across a courtyard.

It seemed sensible to completely refurbish the interior space and make them into what I would term 'upmarket' holiday lets

so many visitors can enjoy the town from close quarters. It never ceases to amaze me what a draw St. Andrews is to visitors - and I hope in providing this type of accommodation I can enhance the visitors' experience.

What makes this apartment unique

I think it is great to be so close to the town centre so that you can walk everywhere. These properties are top of the range with an interior designer influence.

An Amazing Hide-away In St. Andrew's

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 23 Argyle Street was wonderful! The flat exceeded our expectations! It was clean, well furbished, and absolutely lovely. We came to St. Andrew's on the bus, and this flat was only a five-minute walk from the bus station and from the center of town. If we return to St. Andrew's, this will be the place we stay. We highly recommend 23 Argyle Place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review the flat. We are indeed very close to the bus station and I am finding this a popular way for many guests from abroad to get to St. Andrews. So glad the accommodation worked out well for you. To avoid confusion the property is in Argyle Street and not 'Place'

Lovely and Charming Flat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your flat. It was beautifullly decorated and had the most comfortable bed!

We enjoyed getting home after a day of exploring to be able to relax in the open living room.

It is supplied with everything you need shampoo, conditioner, soap, blow dryer etc.

It is in a great location. We walked to golf and dinner without having to use our car.

The owner is very accommodating if you have any questions during your stay.

We will definitely be back.!😉�⛳️

Thank you Suki

Owner's Response: I need to thank my interior designer for the look and feel of the flat - it's always a pleasure for me to visit as well. It is great that you made use of the local specialist shops and I am glad that the location worked well for you, being within easy walkable reach of the golf courses and the restaurants/pubs. See you next time!

beautiful, comfortable and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my Mum, so she had the bedroom which was lovely and I'd the pull out in the lounge which was also fine. We were glad of the detailed notes re how to put the foldout bed back! Suki left lots of brochures, info re the flat and we felt very at home.

Owner's Response: Am so glad the notes were handy for packing up the sofa bed as I don't feel it is obvious otherwise! St. Andrews is a great destination for a short break for all ages and delighted you had a good time with plenty to see and do.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful flat. So thoughtfully decorated and designed. Well equipped kitchen. Loved the radiant heat on the bathroom floor. Really comfortable bed. Loved being able to wash and dry clothes in the middle of our journey. The shower was a little hard for us to figure out at first but we managed. Will be back.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for highlighting what made your stay so enjoyable, I think other travellers will find that very useful. I am sorry you were puzzled by the shower to begin with - maybe the main On/Off switch outside the bathroom door had been turned off. Look forward to welcoming you back again. We will also have available a 3 bedroom town house next door as from June 2017. I have collaborated with the same interior designer so the house will have the same feel and look.

Fantastic flat - beautifully decorated and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We found the flat beautifully appointed. The street it is located on was perfectly located to use as a meeting point during our stay. I can not recommend this highly enough
