Beautiful property with every ammenity in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

Hawkswood House was the perfect place to stay with our family while attending our son's graduation at the University of St. Andrew's. We aprecciated the opportunity to practice our golf right outside the back door and everybody had lots of room to relax and enjoy this spacious and lovely house.

Beautiful location, wonderful accommodations and a delightful host in Mary Jo and John. This property is truly special and can only be appreciated by seeing it. If you are a golfer you will be amazed by the private driving range complete with free balls and the putting and chipping area. Honestly would give it a sixth star if I could!

Best place to stay in Scotland

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. The owners are so warm and friendly and make you feel as if you are part of the family. I cannot recommend this property enough. We were a group of 8 golfers and everyone was pleased and we were lucky enough to christen the brand new driving range. Cannot wait to make a return trip and see what great new additions they have made. Want to again say a big thank you to John, Mary-Jo and Joanne you could not have made my third trip to Scotland any better because it was the best!

The only place to stay in St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

From the time we were picked up, in the beautiful Mercedes shuttle bus, to the time we were delivered back to the train station the service and hospitality was nothing short of impeccable. The Hawkswood House was ideal for the 3 golfers and warm and cozy for the ladies; this home was more than suitable regardless of the occasion for the visit. Furthermore, all the rules and costs were clear and concise and there was no "nickel and diming" or other hidden fees. There's nothing but praise for the Hawkswood House and the staff and truthfully no other place you should stay. Thank you for a great time and great experience.

A friendly weekend away

  • 5 of 5

A truly fabulous experience. The house was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and well located for St Andrews. There was a party of 8 of us and we had more than enough room with the three sitting rooms and 5 bedrooms. The manageress was extremely helpful in organising restaurants, chefs, transport and even a barbershop quartet for a birthday meal. I would recommend the house to any of my friends and hope to visit again soon.

Car: recommended

Hawkswood House and The Roundel are set in the picturesque hamlet of Peat Inn, just a few miles from St Andrews, these superb properties combines the charm of the original farm buildings with modern style, sophistication and impeccable standards of service.

St Andrews is best known as the ‘home of golf’ but this delightful historic town also offers excellent shopping, art galleries, Botanic Gardens and museums, and magnificent golden beaches. It also has far more restaurants and cafes than you would expect for a town of its size, ranging from fine dining, like the fabulous Rocca Grill, to cosy coffee shops and ice cream parlours.

In its heyday St Andrews Cathedral was a centre of pilgrimage and the largest church in Scotland. The museum has an excellent collection of sculptures including a superbly carved Pictish sarcophagus. You can also visit the British Golf Museum, which is handily situated not far from 18th Green of the Old Course.

For something a little different, East Neuk is a string of fishing villages for which the word 'picturesque' might have been invented.

Other recommended day trips include the Secret Bunker, St Andrews Aquarium, St Andrews Castle and the Scottish Fisheries Museum.

And when only the buzz of a big city will do, Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow are all easily reached by car.
