The Details...

Just eight miles away from the picturesque ancient town of St Andrews, world-renowned for its formidable golf courses and untouched beauty, stands St Leonards, an imposing family home converted into a characterful and charming holiday getaway for larger groups.

Sleeping eleven people in five bedrooms, everything about this detached two storey house has been cleverly updated to create a comfortable and versatile space. Bright and unusual wallpapers, tiling, and paints have been utilised to give every room and space in this remarkable home its own distinctive, exciting character.

On the ground floor, a substantial, high-ceilinged living room marries contemporary comfort with traditional elegance. Gleaming hardwood floors and warm patterned wallpaper create a welcoming room for the whole family to sit back on stylish leather sofas, around the woodburning stove in its open hearth, or facing the Amazon Prime and Firestick enabled television.

Next door in the high-end kitchen, cook up a feast for hungry post-golf guests on the catering size induction hob and integrated oven. You can also expect a fridge-freezer, microwave and dishwasher in this room, with its own farmhouse-style table, double Belfast sink, and duck-egg blue tiling. Weather permitting, the BBQ is also an option, for those who fancy an al-fresco meal enjoying the famous east coast Scottish light.

The dining room comes with eight chairs, and ample space to fit in four more extra supper guests, making use of the folding chairs provided. Also on this floor is the brightly decorated entertainment room, full to the brim of activities for children and families. Upstairs, you’ll find four bedrooms equipped with ‘zip and lock’ versatile twin single beds which can easily become doubles, allowing for almost any configuration of adults, children and families. One of these bedrooms is equipped with its en-suite shower-room, and the others share a substantial bathroom, replete with freestanding claw-foot bath tub and rainfall shower. A fifth bedroom contains a single bed.

Everything about St Leonards has been designed with families in mind. From the expansive private garden for children to play in safely, to the park and climbing frame at the bottom of the garden, there is an abundance of outdoors space for families with younger children to enjoy. The ground floor nursery-style playroom is packed with toys and games. You’ll also find a children’s size football table on the ground floor.

With the world-famous St Andrews within easy driving distance, this is a perfect spot for larger groups to use as base from which to explore the historic town. Just around the corner is an excellent pub, and you’ll also be close by the village shop, for any last minute groceries.
