We offer three lovely rooms for guests who'd like to share this special place with us for a while.We are within easy reach of St Andrews. Bankhead House nestles about a mile inland of the southern coastline of Fife known as Largo Bay. Our spectacular views are usually the first thing that guests comment on, and take time to enjoy. With our rural location easily accessible from the main road ( one mile), we can offer the best of town and country, and can recommend some of our favourite places to visit, as well as having brochures, guides and maps to help you make your daily selection of where to go and what to do.

    We offer three spacious rooms for guests. Two first floor, ensuite bedrooms with lovely, southerly views over rolling countryside and the sea,  have hospitality trays and a sitting area. The Town bedroom has a king sized bed. The Country bedroom is a twin bedded room. The Castle room is also ensuite, has a king sized bed, an armchair, and the view is west facing over countryside and the Firth of Forth

    Your Aga cooked breakast is served in the dining room. We use local produce where possible, complemented with our own home grown fruit when in season, and home made preserves. A simpler breakfast choice is also available.

    The dining room also doubles as the guest lounge where you can enjoy the relaxed, peaceful atmosphere.  There is also a television with Freeview.
    After a good meal in one of the local hotels or pubs, the long Summer evenings can be enjoyed in our lovely garden. Spring and Autumn evenings can be enjoyed in front of a cosy log fire
