“Sophisticated tranquility”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Returned to this beautifully appointed Georgian Farmhouse. From your welcome to departure you are wonderfully looked after by Leslie. You will need your own transport due to countryside location. Perfectly located for exploring St Andrews and the East Neuk of Fife. Very comfortable lounge and the bedrooms are tastefully decorated in keeping with the period of the house. Home cooked breakfasts are a treat and set you up for the day. Very quiet location with garden and fantastic views.

What a magical place. Owner was a caring and delightful person. Superb decor, garden and brilliant breakfast. Will tell my friends. Ideal for seeing St Andrews, Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem.
October did see dining options closed though.

Room Tip: Stayed in twin room. Perfect view to the surrounds and garden

An outstanding B&B in a beautiful setting. The four poster room was magnificent and the bathroom huge. Coupled with an excellent breakfast and a charming hostess one could not ask for more.

We couldn't speak more highly of our stay at Troustrie House. My boyfriend & I stayed here for one night in the Shelleycoat Four Poster room. The house is a short drive from St Andrews, nestled in farmland with a brilliant view of the surrounding area. The house is delightfully & loyally decorated, with our room having a cosy & comfortable atmosphere. The host, Lesley, is just lovely, offered local advice & cooked the best breakfast we've had in 3 weeks of travelling around the UK. The locally sourced pork sausages & bacon - you'll miss out if you don't choose it!

Do yourself a favour, and stay here a night or 3. It was such a pleasure.

Thanks again Lesley - all the best.

Room Tip: The 4 poster room is stunning.

Troustrie House affords a warm and welcoming base in the heart of the beautiful kingdom of Fife, with so much to do and only three nights stay we made the most of our days out and every night it felt like coming home; such is the owner,Leslie's gift.
With an excellent choice and well prepared breakfast, along with a wealth of local knowledge and an extensive collection of current tourist brochures means you will not struggle to fill your days. In addition you will also have the use of a very comfortable drawing room should you wish.
I know that we will definitely return.
Thanks to Leslie for a magical experience.

This is an absolutely marvellous B and B. Can only completely endorse what the other reviewers have said! We had a wonderful week here - relaxing in this gem of a house, being looked after by a lovely hostess, and getting out and about exploring many of the attractions
which abound in this part of Scotland. Incredible views from the bedroom over the fields to the sea, always different depending on the time of day, and even a full moon in all its glory graced
the evening skies whilst we were there!

Certainly no hesitation in recommending Troustie House.

We needed a place to stay whilst travelling up from south of England to settle our daughter into St Andrews University. Our stay at Troustrie offered the perfect place to escape to in the evening after what was a stressful, busy and exhausting day. We were met by a wonderful hostess with a much needed cup of tea and shortbread, a beautiful bedroom with views to die for and a lovely victorian bath to soak in.

The spacious house is very homely but done out very tastefully full of books & magazines to relax with. Our breakfast was cooked to perfection with a variety of options available and the owner spoilt us with homemade pancakes on the side.

We left (reluctantly) knowing that this one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in and will definately return when we visit out daughter.

PS. We left a pen and hairclip in the room which was returned to us by royal mail! Personal touch? Definately!!
