From the Wills and Kate connections to the world’s most famous golf club, St Andrews has got to be one of Scotland’s most glamorous locations and North Star is a suitably swish place for families to stay here in style.

Gleamingly fresh and modern, apartment on the ground floor of a Georgian town house, just 30 yards from the University’s historic Graduation Hall and a 2-minute stroller stroll from the beach (stroller included).

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). The apartment has the latest home entertainment gadgetry including TVs with DVD players in the bedroom as well as the lounge which also has Sky TV, a Sonos Music system and free unlimited Wi Fi for playing or browsing on tablets.
