A special place to stay
Not because we say it is but because our guests do! Check out our reviews page.
We took inspiration for the contemporary style and finish of Bridgend House from the Boutique style of hotel that we like to stay in with feature walls in most bedrooms and contemporary bathrooms with large profile lime stone tiles and power showers. In addition we added lots of little extra touches to make our guests feel special. However we have deliberately kept some of the original features of the old building to maintain the unique character and charm of the property.
Relax on your own private patio and soak up the sea views
Above all else we wanted to make the Bridgend House an inviting place for you to relax and unwind in. The house is very comfortably furnished and has its own private patio with garden furniture so you can savour the peace and quiet and appreciate the stunning views over the harbour and out to sea. Watch the lobster boats bobbing about in the waves or stroll over to the Crusoe Hotel and enjoy a glass of chilled wine on the pier gazing out to sea.
Lower Largo`s stunning expanse of sandy beach is also a favourite for kite surfers and walkers – the local sailing club is very active and the sailing boats make a dazzling display when they are out on the water.
The accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms (king-size, twin and single on the first floor) 2 bathrooms, large lounge, spacious fully equipped kitchen and utility room and will normally sleep up to five people but it can accommodate six as a pull out bed can be provided, if required, at a small extra charge to include all linen and towels. Also the Crusoe Hotel, which is a short walk away, provides excellent food and a friendly bar to socialize in so no one has to cook! Breakfast can be taken at The Crusoe, please book with them direct.
Close to St Andrews and all it has to offer
Bridgend House has so much to keep you busy nearby; the amazing beaches, golf courses, coastal path and so much more yet within a short drive you are in St. Andrews where you will find the Championship Golf Courses, superb beaches, the historic St. Andrews University, the Castle, Cathedral and so much more. The charming streets of this medieval town and ancient architecture make the town unforgettable and no visit to St Andrews is complete without a stroll along The West Sands.
Bridgend House is also an excellent base for visiting the unique Fife coastal fishing villages or to enjoy some wonderful walking or cycling locally. Edinburgh and Glasgow are also easily accessible by train, bus or car.
History of the house
Bridgend House is over 200 years old and we understand it was in the same family laterally for over 100 years. There are some fascinating old photographs which show the house in the Railway Tavern including one with an old sail boat moored right in front of the property. It also shows the original location of the bridge across the harbour which was initially much closer to the house. Many years ago there was a small shop on the current parking area where the owner would sell fish and other items that he caught on his boat. When renovating the property in 2011 we came across a very old glass bottle that was being used to prop up the stairs and some old newspapers under the carpets dating back to 1924!
Local restaurants and shops only minutes away
There is a general grocery shop, great local pub called the Railway Tavern and the Crusoe Hotel which does excellent food all within a 2 minute walk of the house so no need to cook if you don’t want to . It is also close to Elie and a 15 minute drive from St Andrews.
A large Sainsbury supermarket is only a 10 minute drive from the house so you can stock up when you get here.
