Set in Scotland in the Fife countryside, just 10 miles from St Andrews and 5 miles from Dundee, Sandford Country Cottages are luxury self-catering cottages & apartments which are part of Sandford House, a 'B' Listed Arts and Crafts House designed by Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott around 1902.
The properties have been restored with Arts and Crafts features such as oak beams and posts. One, two and three bedroom properties are available and all bedrooms are en-suite, with either a bath or a walk-in shower, and all are fitted with Trevi rainwater showers.
In the living areas you'll find spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining rooms with oak beams and posts, comfy seating and a dining table and chairs. There is also a flat screen TV and an iPod dock or Sonos sound system. The kitchens are fully fitted with modern appliances.
All properties have oil central heating and a wood burning stove (except Red Squirrel). Electricity, heating and one basket of logs is included in the rental cost, additional logs can be purchased from the office. Superfast WiFi is free.
My husband and I stay near to Sandford. This year we took two of the Cottages over the Christmas period to accommodate the two branches of our family. This enabled us all to get together in comfortable and beautiful surroundings for the celebration. The Cottages are wonderful and the hosts at Sandford provide the most perfect service. My family loved every minute.
We booked two adjoining apartments which were perfect for our group of 5 couples for a long weekend.
There was a lovely welcome basket with essentials plus a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. We were very comfortable and the log burner added to the relaxing ambience on a cold November night. We had everything in the kitchen that we needed for rustling up a Sunday dinner for 10 with plenty extra crockery, cutlery, and glasses.
This was our 2nd visit and I'm sure we will all return in the future.
This was my Christmas gift to one branch of my family. We stay nearby and accommodated our family in two of Sandford's Country Cottages over Christmas. It was a perfect location and opportunity for a family gathering. The cottages are magnificent and the service provided first class.
