Serenity by the Sea cottage is located 7-8 minutes from downtown St. Andrews. The cottage feels a million miles away but is only minutes from extraordinary restaurants, a lively arts scene, great cafes, grocery stores, a world-class golf course, and amazing outdoor adventure opportunities including sea kayaking, hiking, scuba diving, and whale watching.
The cottage has a private beach (both sandy and rocky areas) a 4-5 minute walk from the cottage down a gorgeous country lane that passes through meadows and small wooded areas and ends at the water. The cottage is surrounded by rose bushes, beautiful forests, and fields full of lupins and is a sanctuary for anyone looking for a quiet family or romantic getaway.
If you have your own kayaks, there are often porpoises in the bay and there is little that is more fun than spending a morning chasing them! Alternately, Eastern Outdoors rents kayaks and offers brilliant guided tours.
If you prefer hiking, we are happy to offer information on gorgeous local trails, many of which are wonderfully beautiful and some are short and / or easy enough to be a good option for even the youngest of hikers. We recommend Simpson Hill hiking area and the Caught Taylor Nature Preserve.
Note for stargazers and photographers: This is an amazing place to see the night skies as there is little light pollution and even the milky way can be seen with the naked eye.
*** New for 2017: We are installing a fire pit and a round of Adirondack chairs for those who love to relax by the fire at the end of the day.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms (1 with a queen-sized bed and 1 with a double bed) as well as a fold-out sofa (3/4 sized bed) in the living room.+ More
