Guests have been gushing in their praise of Shona, the owner and BFB especially approve of her ‘baby go lightly’ approach to providing bulky kit and caboodle so parents don’t have to cram it in the car – (everything from feeding pillow to bouncer chair, playmat with activity arch to bjorn carrier, monitor to steriliser are included).

Location Information

North Star and Scribbles Apartments are tucked away in a quiet residential street at the heart of the exclusive seaside town of St Andrews, 50 miles North East of Edinburgh. The shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants of this vibey university town are just a short stroll away, as well as the pretty harbour, between two superb sandy beaches. Of the numerous places to eat, Ziggys and Blackhorn battle it out to serve up supreme, Scottish beef burgers, Janettas ice cream parlour has 52 flavours of ice cream and North Point Cafe is renowned as a royal meeting place. There are several delis and the Balgrove Larder Farm Shop to stock up on picnic provisions, whilst TESCO will also deliver all the essentials.

St Andrews is steeped in history and has numerous claims to fame, from its world renowned Royal and Ancient Golf Club to its prestigious medieval university where Prince William fell for Kate Middleton. Even one of the beaches, the vast West Sands, was where the iconic opening sequence for Chariots of Fire was filmed.

A fun way to explore St Andrews is picking up one of the town’s Treasure Trails, with a pirate, spy or mystery theme, which guides families from clue to clue around the town’s main sights. When the Scottish weather does its worse, there’s the East Sands Leisure Centre in St Andrews with sloping beach-style access to the pool, tropical palm trees, flume slides and inflatable assault course. St Andrews Aquarium is another winner for families, not only introducing children to the wonders of the deep but also home to penguins, seals, meerkats and creepy crawlies.

Just outside St Andrews (5 minutes drive), Craigtoun Country Park has plenty to keep children happy, including an adventure playground, super bouncy trampolines, bouncy castle, crazy golf, pedal cars, a family cafe and one of Scotland's oldest miniature railways. By exploring this corner of Scotland know as the East Neuk of Fife, families will also find traditional fishing villages with arty residents, traditional taverns full of character and characters, exceptional fish and chip shops and superb seafood restaurants.
