After the last few months we are all craving a change of scenery, to escape the house and the home improvements after months of lockdown.
If you have a hectic household (and even if you don’t) perhaps the idea of getting away for some luxurious peace and quiet sounds like bliss!
St Andrews is the perfect destination for escape, with fresh sea air and beautiful beaches, the open Fife countryside and a huge selection of outdoor activities and attractions to choose from.
The historic town is one of Scotland’s most picturesque to wander around, with an ancient castle, cathedral and harbour to explore. There are also many quaint fishing villages nearby.
The university is the oldest in Scotland and the town has plenty of wonderful places to eat and drink.
But we can’t really talk about St Andrews without mentioning golf, since the game has been played there for the past six centuries.
There are 11 courses in the town, which plays host to major golfing tournaments such as The Open.
The Old Course Hotel’s course, The Duke’s, is situated three miles outside St Andrews and overlooks the town and the coastline. Play is breath-taking in every sense.
The hotel itself overlooks the famous Old Course and the West Sands beach and has plenty of space and access to the outdoors right on the doorstep. The hotel can accommodate families and dogs too, if you decide to bring the family.
You can relax and unwind in the luxurious Kohler Waters Spa, the only one outside the US, which has a choice of must-try signature treatments. And the hotel’s famous Day Spa packages will restart in September.
There are plenty of dining options, ranging from the informal pub (and most famous 19th hole in golf) – the Jigger Inn – to the more refined Road Hole Restaurant, with exquisite food and a view to match.
The Old Course Hotel offers fantastic facilities and gracious hospitality – making it the perfect venue for weddings, meetings, golf outings or simply getting away from it all!
