We’re pleased to announce that we will be re-opening on 18th July, this is a little later than the Scottish Government announcement has indicated, but we thought best to wait until you can enjoy all that St Andrews has to offer before opening our doors again.
Plan your trip today
Choosing a self-catering holiday means that you can always entertain at home but if you would prefer to dine out there is plenty of choice in St Andrews.
Restaurants, bars and pubs have been advised by the Scottish Government that they can re-open from 15th July.
If you are looking for some recommendations on places to eat and drink in St Andrews, we would suggest Forgans, The Jigger Inn, Little Italy, The Seafood Ristorante and Balgrove Larder.
Shops with outdoor access are already starting to re-open and our lovely little town is crammed full of independent shops for you to enjoy.
To highlight just a few; J & G Innes is a wonderful bookshop and art supplies store, Bonkers Gift Shop is home to a variety of quirky gifts and souvenirs and Auchterlonies of St Andrews stocks a wide selection of golfing brands and merchandise.
St Andrews has so many things to do outdoors and here are three of our suggestions to keep you active whilst also exploring St Andrews:
1. Life’s a Beach
Pack up your bucket and spade as you will need them in St Andrews.
West Sands is the largest beach in the town and it’s also very close to 1 Links Crescent.
Enjoy walking, running, kite flying, land yachting and paddle boarding along this two mile stretch of sandy beach.
East Sands is located close to the old harbour at the other side of town. This sandy beach has a path on the inland side, making it the ideal choice for walkers although fishing, surfing and kayaking are also popular.
Car parks, toilet facilities and cafes are available at both beaches.
2. Golfer’s Paradise
St Andrews is fondly known as the ‘Home of Golf’ due to the 10 courses available nearby. The most famous golf course in the town is the Old Course and 1 Links Crescent is lucky enough to have first class views overlooking the greens.

3. Fife Coastal Path
If you are a keen walker and looking for a challenge, you may wish to consider the Fife Coastal Path. Starting in Kincardine, this 183km route takes you through the various landscapes throughout Fife before culminating in Newburgh.
Alternatively, you could look to take on a stretch of the route starting in St Andrews. Click here to find out more about the St Andrews to Kingsbarn section that is 13.5km long:
Book with confidence
During lockdown, we have taken the time to study Government advice so we can adjust to the ‘new normal’ as easily as possible. With that, we are delighted to have achieved the ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, an Industry Standard mark that shows we have followed Government guidelines in relation to Covid-19 cleanliness and protocol.
So, if you are longing for a week away by the coast where better to escape to than 1 Links Crescent and Swilken View?
