What we love about Rufflets

  • That its recent refurbishment has only enhanced its old-fashioned, country house luxury
  • That it’s in the quiet Fife countryside but only minutes from St Andrews and its beaches
  • The staff-great local knowledge and they might even be able to get you that last minute tee time
  • Afternoon tea on the terrace looking out over the award-winning gardens
  • Locally-reared lamb and venison, fresh fish and seafood from East Neuk harbours, veg from the kitchen garden


The best of country house living near the home of golf

If settings help distinguish hotels then Rufflets stands above the rest. This country house hotel enjoys the most enviable of locations - St Andrews, the home of golf with the famous Old Course, is right on the doorstep. Non-golfers don't be scared off. The medieval town also offers excellent shopping, art galleries, theatre and museums. In this tranquil corner of Fife there are also the quaint fishing ports of Crail, Anstruther and Pittenweem, from where there are superb coastal walks linking one village to the other along the cliff paths or across sandy beaches.

Family owned and managed since the 1950s, Rufflets today is rated amongst the very top hotels in Scotland, which makes sense given its beautiful grounds and gardens, luxurious bedrooms, excellent cuisine combined with a laid back and relaxed atmosphere.

In the new Seasons at Rufflets Restaurant, Head Chef David Kinnes  cleverly showcases freshly-picked produce alongside some of the finest ingredients sourced from the Kingdom of Fife and other parts of Scotland, including from Rufflet's own kitchen garden. The fantastic cuisine is beautifully matched by the sleek and contemporary dining space with a bay window showcasing views of the gardens.

The accommodation offers comfortable and contemporary décor and the fabulous Turret rooms are a must with their spectacular view across the formal gardens. Rufflets is not a stuffy place and it really is great for families; a range of family and child friendly accommodation is available in both the main house and the lodges within the grounds. Dogs are also welcome in the lodges by prior arrangement. For golfers, the hotel can offer an excellent advisory service to help with all golf enquiries. All in all, a great place for a relaxing break or golfing holiday filled with Scottish charm.
