Description

Dauphinhill House is situated opposite the old city walls, where you are within a 5-minute walk to a sandy beach, old harbour, and great places to eat and drink. Ideal for couples, friends and families to spend time together in an elegant, comfortable property. Dating back to the 18th century, Dauphinhill House is a Grade B-listed house and has been refurbished in 2019 to an excellent standard throughout, whilst maintaining its original character and charm.

Five minutes’ walk away is the centre of St Andrews, one of the most historic cities in Scotland with medieval streets, old buildings and a variety of attractions to visit and explore. St Rules Tower at the cathedral is well worth a visit; climb to the top and enjoy the panoramic view over the city and the coast. St Andrews is a thriving city and has a good selection of quality restaurants, cafés, bistros and bars. The attractive harbour and sandy beach are only a 5-minute walk away. You can explore this attractive city on foot through the old wynds and lanes and stop off along the way for an ice cream or afternoon tea.

For guests who enjoy a round of golf, Dauphinhill House has a golf club store and is ideally located with 10 golf courses close by including the world famous Old Course, and at Fairmont St Andrews, the Torrance and Kittocks courses. St Andrews regularly plays host to the Open Championship, and the British Golf museum is well worth a visit.

Dauphinhill House is ideal for guests visiting friends and family who are based at St Andrews University and for attending one of the graduation ceremonies. If you wish to travel a little further afield then the Fife Coastal Route provides you with walks to picturesque fishing villages, white sandy beaches and spectacular views.

About the local area

Fife was home to Scotland's capital for six centuries, the evidence of which can still be found in its many castles, cathedrals and places of historic interest. Apart from its historical heritage Fife is also renowned for world class golf courses and lovely stretches of picturesque coastline.

Long sections of the Fife Coastal Path can now be enjoyed by walkers and there are a variety of linear and circular routes which have been graded and waymarked, from which you can enjoy beautiful seacapes and spot spectacular wildlife such as grey seals, dolphins and maybe even the odd basking shark. For bird lovers the offshore islands of Inchkeith and Inchcolm are home to thousands of seabirds, including large numbers of Puffins in May.

In the northeast the gentle rolling hills of the hinterland extend eastwards to windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches, where scenes from the film `Chariots of Fire' were filmed. South down the coast a short distance is the ancient university town of St. Andrews, home to the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club.

St. Andrews University was founded in 1410 and is Scotland's oldest university town. The medieval town centre has narrow alleys and cobbled streets which lead to the now ruined cathedral and the church of St. Regulus, which has a spiral staircase leading to the top of a 108-foot tower, offering magnificent views over the town. There are also two great beaches, botanical gardens and an aquarium here.

South of St. Andrews the picturesque small stone harbour fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Piteenween and St Monans are all places to experience the un-hurried pace of life by the sea. Further round the coast there are a number of first class golf courses such as Elie and Leven Links, to name only two of more than forty golf courses in this region!

Southern Fife is dominated by Dunfermline, Scotland's former capital. The Queensferry crossing, the longest bridge of its type in the world, The Forth Road and Rail Bridges over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh are the most distinctive landmarks on this stretch of coast and allow easy access to the capital for days out.
