From the moment you lay eyes on this idyllic lodge set on the historic Balcarres Estate, you'll fall in love with the rural setting and rustic character. We adore every inch of this home, inside and out – it's the definition of warm and welcoming with oodles of country charm. Cosy seating abounds in the living room – take your pick between the fluffy armchairs or the cushy tartan sofa – and the green kitchen is as well-stocked as it is stylish. Embracing the slow life is easy here – just picture waking up to gorgeous views in the beautiful bedrooms, soaking in the freestanding copper bathtub in the master bedroom and snuggling up with a book and glass of scotch in front of the wood-burner. And the garden is truly something special, with a stunning Victorian conservatory perfect for afternoon teas, a picturesque alfresco dining area and unbeatable scenery. Roam the 800 acres of woodlands, wildflower meadows and parkland in your backyard, then gather around the outdoor firepit while the evening dwindles away. When you want to venture out, St Andrews is only a fifteen-minute drive – perfect for a day trip – while Edinburgh is less than an hour away if you want to spend a day in the city.

Home truths

    The wifi is best suited for light browsing instead of HD video calls or streaming.

    You'll definitely want a car here, and there are two parking spaces available in front of the lodge.

    The copper bathtub is freestanding in the master bedroom, so there's very little privacy.

    You can self check-in with the lockbox.

    It's worth noting that the mattress topper here are on the softer side, so not everyone might find them comfortable.

About St Andrews

More than just the spot of a royal meet cute in the 21st century, St Andrews has been enthralling visitors since the middle ages, when a pilgrimage to the Cathedral was the equivalent of a cultural city break. Narrow streets have remained largely the same since the days of medieval pilgrimage, but inside the buildings, you’ll now find a litany of vintage boutiques, independent bookshops, and student-friendly coffee shops.
