“Little slice of heaven”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is the second time we have stayed in The Sheling. This visit we returned with our two children under 2 and we had an amazing family break. The house is finished to a very high standard and is very clean. Excellent views which you would never tire from. Owners (Moria and Bob) go above and beyond to ensure you feel welcome. We arrived to balloons for the children and bath toys plus ensured we could fit both bots in! Can't wait to return.

“Fantastic Weekend”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I had high expectations based on the existing reviews and the photographs of the property but on arrival the views really do blow you away. A very quiet location with an ever changing view which distracts you from the television!

The property was spotless throughout and everything had been thought of in the kitchen including nice touches such as cereal, milk and eggs.

Moira knew we were celebrating my Dad's birthday and he was overwhelmed to find a lovely birthday cake complete with candles.

We stay in a lot of self catering properties and this really was exceptional and we all enjoyed a fantastic weekend.

Management Response
1 Nov 2014
Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review of your two weeks spent relaxing at The Shieling and for sharing your appreciation of the high standard of the accommodation. I am glad you enjoyed the welcome pack although I share your view that eating out in St Andrews, like so many other places on the East coast, is always a pleasure. I agree that capturing the vast panorama from the house can be a challenge to any photographer, but I believe you were successful and am sure you managed to do it justice. Your family certainly made good use your time here by exploring so much of Scotland each day, as well as utilizing the space surrounding the house for your exercise/running regime. Thank you for your custom and your comments and I hope to welcome you back one day.
