The Vintage - A Hidden Gem, 200 yards from the 1st tee of the Old Course

Looking to rent a vacation house in St Andrews, the Home of Golf?

The Vintage... A 2-iron away from the 1st tee of the Old Course.

The ideal self-catering vacation rental accommodation in the heart of St Andrews, Scotland.

Located within the Conservation area of St Andrews and surrounded by historic houses, just 200 yards from the Old Course and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, 100 yards from the seafront and close to the ruins of the Castle and the centre of town.

The Vintage is a delightful, free-standing, fully renovated, three bedroom house for rent with a large conservatory, offering 130 square meters of comfortable living space including a fully equipped kitchen, living room, and two bathrooms.
The house has a distinct homely feel about it with natural wood finishes, parquet flooring and a contemporary interior design.

The Conservatory measures 27 square meters and can comfortably seat 10 at a large antique table. Its French double doors open up to the tastefully landscaped patio-garden which surrounds the house.

With no direct access for cars, (Gillespie Wynd connects the seafront Scores with North Street and offers access only to pedestrians) the only noise one hears is the wind and the occasional seagull flying overhead.

Cleaning service available upon request.

A day in St Andrews


MORNING: play the most important eighteen in the world, The Old Course.

LUNCH: enjoy a traditional American cheeseburger and a pint of Ale in the famous golfer’s corner lounge bar of the Dunvegan Hotel, only a 9-iron away from the 18th green. (depending on the wind)

AFTERNOON: tee off on the New Course, (1875) a course every bit as challenging as the Old Course.

EARLY EVENING: take a walk along the shore and visit the ancient graves of Old and Young Tom Morris near the ruins of the Cathedral.

DINNER: enjoy a memorable dinner at the Peat Inn, considered one of the finest restaurants in Scotland and be looked after by the husband and wife team Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle.
(book well in advance)

AFTER DINNER: walk the 1st and 18th fairway of the Old Course, then alongside the illuminated R&A clubhouse, up the Scores, down Gillespie Wynd and back to ‘your home in St Andrews’ - The Vintage, to enjoy a well-deserved nightcap in the patio garden.

St Andrews
An ancient seat of learning with royal connections, this small Scottish town
combines blue-chip golf with charming surroundings


What you are likely to love about it

It’s inclusiveness.
People who know nothing about golf probably assume that the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the oldest in the world, is the last word in snobbery. Not so.
The famous Old Course at St Andrews is open to all comers and is criss-crossed by public paths, giving it an agreeable democratic air, with children and dog-walkers mingling with golfers.
On a fine summer day it must be one of the most beautiful sporting settings in the world, with a sea breeze stiffening the flags and the beach running along the links.
It makes golf seem suddenly rather romantic, and not just a displacement activity for men in silly pullovers.
Although it is the golf course that makes St Andrews a place of pilgrimage, the ancient university, dating back to the 15th century, would grace any town, with the weather-beaten old collages and shiny, well-scrubbed students.
History is all around, from the ruins of the 12th century cathedral at the eastern edge of the town to the equally dilapidated castle, built a century later.

What you might not necessarily like about it

St Andrews probably boasts the biggest concentration of golfers in Britain.
You cannot move in the town centre in the evening without overhearing talk of bunkers and birdies and fluffed chips. It might get wearing after the first few hours, unless you are an avid golfer yourself.
Golf dominates the shops almost as much as conversation. Even Oxfam has second-hand seven-irons in the window. Other outlets are limited in consequence.
Another blot on the landscape is the fighter jets roaring in and out of RAF Leuchars, drowning out the seagulls.
