This is a good property and the owners are very helpful. The bedrooms are excellent and suited for 12 people, although the living accommodation of two rooms is tight and we could have done with more for our party of 8 people and 3 dogs. The dining table in the lounge area takes 8 people and the kitchen table takes less. It is near Tentsmuir Forest which is great, but (as warned) our dogs came back with ticks every time. The beach at St Andrews is lovely and on a Sunday you can also walk the Old Course with your dogs which is a highlight for any golfer. We were disappointed by the garden, as the only enclosed area was down the side of the house accessed by going out through the front door and past the owners’ section. Though having an excellent large BBQ, the area is small. The owners live in the section to the right of the property and along the back of the house, so they have the use of the back garden and the only other outside area is the front garden which is not enclosed. It lies on a busy road without a gate and is also open for dogs to roam onto the neighbour’s plot, so only useful for well-behaved dogs and children. Internet access was unreliable. Parking is fine for three cars which is what we had, although it meant that any visitors to the owners would invariably park outside our living space which was intrusive. I wasn’t used to an induction hob and the pans I had brought for cooking didn’t fit the hobs. The baking dishes supplied were small and limited, not suitable for a large party cooking. However the oven is a good size. Both the microwave and fridge are very small, I put as much as I could in the freezer. I had Sainsbury’s deliveries while there, they arrived promptly. A nice coffee machine with pods was supplied, that was much appreciated. As to cleanliness, it was generally spotless apart from the fridge and the microwave door, which I had to clean before use, everything else was fine.

We stayed here for 6 nights while we explored the area. This beautiful Country House is in a lovely quiet setting and is very clean and comfortable. Relaxing gardens with a patio seating area and plenty of parking. We had a spacious, well furnished room with a comfortable bed where we slept well. Karen and Tom are excellent hosts and they were very helpful in guiding us to good restaurants and suggesting places to visit. The breakfasts were top quality. To ensure social distancing they have limited the number of rooms in use and breakfasts are timed to limit the number of guests in the dining room. Highly recommended!!

Stayed for a long weekend in September with my mum and sister for a family get together. Had a lovely stay in this very comfortable accommodation. Karen and Tom were extremely welcoming and helpful, happy to share lots of tips on places to visit and explore. Breakfasts were tasty and offered an excellent choice. The rooms were lovely and everything was spotlessly clean. The comfortable lounge was a real bonus providing a great space to socialise and spend some family time together when we were not out and about exploring Fife. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I recently stayed with Karen and Tom for ten days while I attended an event in St Andrews. I expected the B&B to be attractive from the pictures and it was. My room was comfortable as were the lounge and breakfast room. Breakfast was great and Karen was more than happy to make my meal “just the way I like it”. The real surprise was just how easy it was to get everywhere. It’s only a few minutes from the Leuchars rail station and a very easy trip into St Andrews. I look forward to staying at the Pinewood Country House in the future. Thank you both for a lovely stay

Our family of four stayed at the Pinewood Country House last week on a visit to St Andrews and can’t recommend it highly enough. Karen and Rob are the most accommodating and gracious hosts. They let us store our luggage for several days before we arrived, sent our laundry out to be done, and made us feel like family while we were there. The rooms are lovely - bright and cheery - and everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were enormous and excellent. While the place was a little difficult to find at first (there’s no house number), there is a helpful brown roadside sign in the tiny village of St Michaels pointing to Pinewood. (Turn onto the road opposite to the St Michaels Inn and go about 200 yards - the Pinewood will be the large white house on your right.). Enjoy!
