A place to die for!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the The Roundel on the thursday afternoon and were met by the host who kindly showed us around. We were greeted with a food hamper which was a lovely touch. We were then shown around the accommodation which was absolutely superb. Everything was top quality and you did not want for anything! There is also an outdoor jacuzzi which again was amazing. We were also able as golfers to use the golfing facilities of the sister property (Hawkswood House) next door. The setting is beautiful and ideal for the short journey to St Andrews and other golf courses that we played in the area. I would have no hesitation in recommending this high class accommodation and would not think anyone would be disappointed after their stay here.

St Andrews

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.
