I grew up in Annan near the border with England. I then moved to Glasgow to attend College. I am a Pupil Support Assistant at a school in Glasgow. I married in 1989 and have 2 children, one is at St Andrew university the other is going to University on a golf scholarship. My husband ,Graeme, is a keen golfer and we kno the area really well. Eventually we want to move to Kingsbarns. We have had fantastic family holidays in Kingsbarns especially when the children were little. The beach is fantastic , rocks to climb and 2miles of sandy beach.
LaVerne purchased this House in 2003
Why LaVerne chose Saint Andrews
Our home is 10 minutes walk to Kingsbarns Golf Course , Kingsbarns beach and a short 10 minute drive from St. Andrews and 5 minutes from Crail. Smiddy Burn is a charming cosy cottage on two floors and is located in a quiet charming conservation village with great access to lots of outdoor activities. Guests will have access to free wifi. There is also a dvd library and several board games. There is a sofa bed in the living room which is suitable for 1 adult . We do not live in Kingbarns but we will answer any queries by email or telephone. We are keen golfers and play in St Andrews and the surrounding courses on a regular basis and we will therefore try to help you get the best out of your visit.
What makes this House unique
Every time we stay at Smiddy Burn we don't want to leave! We instantly relax and life just goes that little bit slower. The Inn at Kingsbarns is really friendly and the food is good and is less than 2 minutes walk away. The owners Max and Annette are fantastic and very friendly. But when we want a little bit more St Andrews is less than 15 minutes away by car and for those special occasion when you all want to celebrate then the bus is only a few minutes from the cottage.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Great location...quiet but easy access to everything
LaVerne was terrific to communicate with. The house was spotless and she provided wonderful gifts for our arrival...champagne, milk, eggs, etc. would definitely stay there again.
Incredible cottage with thoughtful touches
LaVerne thought of everything, and more! Every ‘I could do with an...’ item was here alongside many thoughtful special touches which were very well received.
If you are fortunate enough to attend an event at Cambo Estate as we did then you will have a brilliant time! If not, make time to see the grounds anyway! The cottage is within easy walking distance of Cambo (we had no problem even later, when tipsy with toddlers in tow)!
StAndrews LaMozza pizza restaurant is FABULOUS- matches any pizza weve eaten in Italy. Also recommend the Botanical Gdns.
Such a brilliant stay.
Thank you for all your kind words and wonderful review. Holidays are so important and I am glad we are getting it right:) Yes, Cambo House is very close and it is a lovely walk to Cambo from our cottage and I agree the gardens are spectacular.
Good shout about LaMozza the pizzas are really good and reasonably priced!
We would love to host you and your family again:)
Thank you again for the great review!!
Great house just outside St. Andrews- very comfortable and clean. Well supplied.
Great house to stay only 10 min. Outside St. Andrews. They have thought of everything you need if you arrive late in afternoon. Coffee juice eggs and bread. Very comfortable and clean.
Thank you Glenn for your kind review. I am really happy you found our cottage clean and very comfortable. We do try to think of everything to make our guests stay as good as it can be as holidays are very precious. I am glad we are getting it right ! :)

We loved having you all stay at our cottage and we would love to see you again. Thank you for your delightful review:)
Lovely cottage, just a short walk from the beach
We had a very relaxing time in Kingsbarns. The cottage was lovely, very clean and had everything we needed. There were really thoughtful touches such as a welcome basket of fizz, sweets, and bagels; spare toiletries in case we'd forgotten anything; and games and books to help keep our 4 year old son entertained. LaVerne was very helpful, and easy to get in touch with if we had any queries. The location was perfect, just a short walk to beautiful Kingsbarns beach. The fish and chips in nearby Crail are definitely worth the short drive. We were also charmed by the tearoom/vintage shop in Kingsbarns. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
Thank you for your wonderful review , we really do try hard to make your holiday as perfect as can be. You were delightful guests and we would love for you to stay with us again.
We love the award winning Kingsbarns Beach which just 10 mins walk away. The area of St Andrews and the East Neuk of Fife is abundant with world renowned golf courses plus fabulous coastal walks. There is also a great pub in the village, an 18th century inn which serves delicious food. Kingsbarns distillery is located closeby and they have tours plus a welcoming cafe. Cambo House which is 10 minutes walk away has lovely gardens and tea room plus East Neuk of Fife has a multitude of tourist attractions for all ages.
