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 (1 bedroom) 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. All photos in gallery are labelled 'Wilson House (3 bedrooms)' or '1 bedroom apartment' as my 2 adverts share 1 photo gallery.

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.

Beautiful Apartment

Absolutely loved our stay in this apartment. A stone's throw from the centre of St Andrews but so quiet and peaceful. Very tastefully furnished, everything to a very high standard. We cannot wait to return.

Great location, we had a few minor glitches with the boiler and bathroom exhaust fan

  • 4 of 5

Loved the flat so much we asked to stay longer. Had difficulty with the boiler system, breaker was tripped. Suki always was a phone call away to help the poor Yankees set up and use the appliances. Loved the bottle of wine and fridge stocked. Definitely would stay there again. Walk to everything. We used the app on parking meter to pay. Super easy.

Owner's Response: So sorry we could not accommodate you for longer - out of high season it would probably have been easier. Thank you for the lovely photo of you on the Swilken Bridge and I will monitor that trip switch, thanks for pointing it out.

Spent a lovely week-end in St. Andrews attending a family wedding, made even more special by staying in such beautiful accommodation. Argyle street is perfect in every way. A hidden gem. Thank you from

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!
