You will never be bored staying at St Andrews Coach Houses as there is so much to do in the local area and we also have lots of activities on site.
The Activity Barn
Fancy blowing of some steam dashing through a bale tunnel or challenging your nearest and dearest to a game of ping pong? Then you have come to the right place. We have a large Activity Barn for our guests’ use adjacent to the Coach Houses. This has been a huge success keeping guests and their children entertained for hours, especially when the weather is wet. You can see more about our activity barn here.
The Barn has a full size pool table, table tennis table, basket ball net, table football, darts board, mini badminton court, childrens climbing frame with slide and bark play area with a bale tunnel and bales to clamber on. There are also some push along toys including a cosy coupé car and small tractor for our younger guests to enjoy.
The large lawn outside all three Coach Houses is a fantastic place for a run around or to play a relaxing game of croquet on. Also our guests with babies have found this area ideal as baby can be playing on a rug on the lawn while the older children can be playing football on the lawn.
Meet the Animals
One of the unique aspects of staying at St Andrews Coach Houses is the chance to get see our farm animals. Where else do you get the chance to wake up in the morning and gaze out over green fields full of cows and calves grazing, sheep baahing and our lovely horse Sophia munching grass just outside your window? The children love to see all the animals and for many of them it is their first experience of being up close and personal with any farm animals. Don’t forget to bring a carrot for Sophia!
You can walk to St Andrews from the Coach Houses along a public right of way if you are feeling energetic and have the right footwear. Alternatively in the summer you can walk to Allanhill fruit farm and enjoy coffee and strawberry tart before meandering home.
If you are feeling energetic you there are several runs on quiet country roads you can take from the Coach Houses.
