Overview

About the property

Well appointed ground floor flat , close to shops, bars and golf

This very popular pied à terre provides a calm and comfortable oasis near St Andrews' West Port. 23 Argyle Street is a ground floor south facing flat and its sumptuous interior is designed to sleep two but there is an option for a third guest to use the generous sofa bed. It is 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. The flat is about 5-10 minutes walk from the first hole of The Old Course and because of its 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.

The flat has the original front door to the whole building and is all on one level with high ceilings. The property has one large bedroom at the back of the property and a sunny south facing sitting room/dining area with bay window street side. The beautiful round dining table can seat up to four and we have one large sofa in the bay window and another medium size sofa alongside. The TV is 43 inch and is the latest Sony Android with Youview. The flat also has broadband. The bathroom contains a large walk in shower with a low profile tray. There is a robust good quality sofa bed in the sitting room for a child/guest (bedding supplied). Travel cot (bring own bedding), baby bath, and high chair available if requested.

Parking - If you are lucky you can get parked for free opposite the property but it should be noted that parking is available in the 2 Argyle Street car parks very close to the property - £3.80 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.

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.

Move on to the fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Pitenweem and discover the harbours, pottery and art exhibitions in these seaside towns.

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 Tim 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 Saint Andrews

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

We have refurbished the interior space to create an 'upmarket' holiday let so that 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. This property and the one next door are top of the range with an interior designer influence.

We spent 4 days in this lovely apartment while in St. Andrews. We were on a 50th Anniversary vacation and we were greeted with flowers, chocolates, wine, and other goodies. Felt so welcomed and our stay was so comfortable. The apartment is central to the city center and other sites so we were able to walk everywhere. We even found the bus station just around the corner so we could get to the train very easily. Great place to stay in every way!

Excellent Stay in St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time staying at this property in St. Andrews. This was an ideal location for being able to walk into town as well, as a central base for golf.

We truly enjoyed the apartment as it was more than enough space for the 2 of us, as well as our luggage. Lovely living room and much larger than accustomed to bedroom when traveling to Europe. Had all the modern conveniences of home and was lovely just like in the pictures.

Suki, the owner, was wonderful as well. Thanks so much for the lovely stay. We would highly recommend this to others thinking about staying here.

Lovely, comfortable property in the heart of town with parking steps away

  • 5 of 5

I came to St. Andrews to spend a week with my daughter who is studying at the university. We spent a very nice week at the Argyle street flat. It is very well equipped and comfortable for two people. The generous sized bedroom is well soundproofed from the traffic noise on the road out front. Furniture and fixings are tasteful and of nice quality. The kitchen is cozy with all the supplies needed to cook a meal at home. Heated floor in washroom was welcome during a week that rained almost constantly. My daughter very much enjoyed the respite from her residence and I couldn't imagine having the same type of holiday/visit in a hotel room. The flat's location is also a super-bonus, with two inexpensive parking lots just steps from the property. I am glad I booked this place. Thank you very much.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for such a comprehensive review. I do get a lot of University parents staying here so any new visitors will find your words very reassuring. Hopefully we can accommodate you again.
