Sleeps up to 11 - Situated right in the heart of the town, 6 Queen’s Gardens is a wonderful place to spend your time in St Andrews. For golfers, the property is little more than a 7-8 minute stroll through town to the iconic Old Course.
This is a large typical Victorian house in the middle of St Andrews. Queen's Gardens is a lovely tree & garden lined street located just off South Street (opposite Holy Trinity Church) and the house is less than one minute’s walk from the many restaurants/ bars/shops.
Because of its central location it is ideally placed as a base not only for golfers but those visiting the university or exploring the historic buildings and ruins of the town. The Old Course 1st tee/18th green and the iconic Royal & Ancient Clubhouse are all a short walk away as are the town's beautiful beaches - the East & West Sands (remember the classic opening sequence in the film 'Chariots of Fire'?).For wedding groups we are almost next door to the Town Hall & Holy Trinity Church.

Beautiful and elegantly proportioned drawing room; second living area and dining room leading into kitchen and opening into the rear courtyard. 130 ft private garden with patio seating area & golf practice/warm-up net.

Queen's Gardens is typical within St Andrews in that many of the houses have a private garden opposite the house. No. 6 enjoys a 130ft garden with patio seating, dining and BBQ area and golf practice/warm up net. This is potentially an important start to the day as several of the courses in town don't actually have a practice range facility anywhere near the 1st tee.
