Guests Comments :

"Our visit to Hawkswood House was perfect in every way - All 8 of us enjoyed the beautiful home and setting. The owners, John and Mary-Jo were as nice and helpful as they could have been! Our experience was top shelf all the way - including coaching us around the country, fine dining at home with chef's cooking, golfing practice right outside our door! It was a wonderful time, one which will be hard to match, but hopefully repeated soon!"

"Beautiful property with every amenity - in a stuning location. Hawkswood House was the perfect place to stay with our family while attending our son's graduation at the University of St. Andrew's. We aprecciated the opportunity to practice our golf right outside the back door and everybody had lots of room to relax and enjoy this spacious and lovely house.

"Spectacular - Beautiful location, wonderful accommodations and a delightful host in Mary Jo and John. This property is truly special and can only be appreciated by seeing it. If you are a golfer you will be amazed by the private driving range complete with free balls and the putting and chipping area. Honestly would give it a sixth star if I could."

"Best place to stay in Scotland - this property is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. The owners are so warm and friendly and make you feel as if you are part of the family. I cannot recommend this property enough. We were a group of 8 golfers and everyone was pleased and we were lucky enough to christen the brand new driving range. Cannot wait to make a return trip and see what great new additions they have made. Want to again say a big thank you to John, Mary-Jo and Joanne you could not have made my third trip to Scotland any better because it was the best!"

"The only place to stay in St Andrews - From the time we were picked up, in the beautiful Mercedes shuttle bus, to the time we were delivered back to the train station the service and hospitality was nothing short of impeccable. The Hawkswood House was ideal for the 3 golfers and warm and cozy for the ladies; this home was more than suitable regardless of the occasion for the visit. Furthermore, all the rules and costs were clear and concise and there was no "nickel and diming" or other hidden fees. There's nothing but praise for the Hawkswood House and the staff and truthfully no other place you should stay. Thank you for a great time and great experience."
