Owner description: A seasonal farm shop, cafe and play area on a working strawberry farm, just 1 mile south of St Andrews. We are open mid-May to mid-September, 10 am to 6 pm. Serving teas, coffees, home baking, fresh sandwiches and home-made soup. Freshly-picked strawberries from the farm and other local produce and deli items are available for sale. There is ample parking, and a free children's play area, all with spectacular views of St Andrews bay.

Lovely tearoom with very friendly staff, farm shop with their own Strawberrys and the view is to die for. Great picnic area and children's play area. You could spend hours here if you have children.

visited this afternoon by chance seeing a signpost on the outskirts of St Andrews. It is easy to drive past the opening coming up from St Andrewsas it is hidden by a large hedge. Watch out on your left coming up the hill. Location is excellent with views over St Andrews and beyond to Tentsmuir beach and the hills beyond Dundee. Adequate gravel car park and extensive outside eating area and play area for children. The tearoom and shop themselves are small but pleasant with a rustic feel. We had coffee and cake from the selection available. Both excellent. There is a larger menu for those wanting more substantial food. The shop is small, sells local food and which included strawberries and local butchery and fish; also hand made jams.The staff were pleasant. If you are in the area and want to escape from the mainstream eating places in St Andrews give this place a try. we will be back

Well worth a visit - can get there by walking but it's a long walk up a hill, if you take the care there is free car parking.
Cafe is fantastic - cakes, food and delicous coffee all lovely and freshly made. Plenty of treats for the kids too aswell as a fantastic outdoor play area including a football pitch! The views of St. Andrews town and beaches are breathtaking!
The farm shop is small but well stocked - they are renowned for their sweet strawberries at Allanhill - always buy a couple of punnets when visiting!
The staff are always lovely and welcoming!
I highly recommend a visit when in St Andrews!!

This is a lovely spot,with great views over St Andrews and a well appointed play area for children,as others have mentioned. We like to come for tea and scones,served with excellent home made jam,but of course the main attraction has to be the strawberries!
Now we can have berries most of the year,but nothing beats the early summer crop.
A special mention for the charming and friendly staff,always smiling!

This is a lovely place to go for lunch or coffee & cake. It is primarily a fruit farm but they have a good sized cafe which has seating inside & out. There is also a large outdoor area where they have animals and is very good for families with children. But the best thing is the quality of their fruit and home baking which you can buy in their shop together with lots of other goodies. Their strawberries are the best i have ever tasted and the strawberry tarts are to die for my husband & i always visit when we are in St Andrews. On our most recent visit we had cream teas which were delicious , home made strawberry jam and fresh cream. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.
