Welcome To Braeside House We have mastered the art of providing great Bed and Breakfast experiences by looking after over 3,800 guests over the last 15 years we've been in business. The majority of those 3,800 ...More guests; golfers, holiday makers, University lecturers, past students of the University -and even an American Senator and American Brigadier General - have all said we provide the things they looked for when choosing a B&B in St Andrews. Location is crucial. We are only 5 minutes walk to the town centre and the Bus Station, 10 minutes walk to the first tee of the Old Course, walking distance to the University, 10 minutes walk to the Byre Theatre and we are very close to the Botanic Gardens .
