Escape to the Scottish countryside at this fabulous cottage in Angus. Up to eight guests can experience wonderful walks nearby and enjoy the abundance of wildlife on the doorstep.
This picturesque cottage has been carefully renovated to create a single-level retreat that’s bursting with character, sleeping eight guests and three dogs across four bedrooms. Set in a grand estate within the Angus Glens, the property was once used as a steading: a traditional farm and its outbuildings. The secluded location makes this an enchanting bolthole to celebrate special occasions with loved ones and is an ideal vantage point for enthusiastic walkers and nature lovers to explore the spectacular countryside.
The property is delightfully cosy throughout, freshly painted with bright neutral tones and lovingly styled with traditional furniture and homely details. The addition of a roaring open fire and an Aga enhances the timeless charm, with a few contemporary touches such as ambient lighting and a very well-equipped kitchen.
The comfortable lounge is a treat for the senses, where you can curl up in comfort in front of the fire, selecting a book from the mini-library on the shelves. Even the most reluctant of cooks will fall in love with the fantastic kitchen, which is a masterpiece of design with sleek worktops, unique lighting, and a dark wood floor. The AGA-style oven, mismatched chairs and antique dresser strike an interesting contrast, making this a quirky spot for perching with your morning coffee and the papers. Dinner is a more elaborate affair thanks to the sophisticated dining room, a snug location for uncorking a bottle of good wine and settling down to a hearty meal and flowing conversation.
Weary guests will find the bedrooms irresistible after a busy day, as each one is dressed in sumptuously soft linen complete with delicate floral details and pretty artwork. The master king-size has an en-suite, and there is a family-size bathroom for the remaining three bedrooms. Depending on what suits your party, the two double bedrooms can be converted into twins on request.
Outside, your private garden has marvellous views across the estate, with sweeping lawns, ancient trees and glimpses of the surrounding glens and Munros, which are mountains over 3,000ft. There’s also a patio with garden furniture, perfect for enjoying a glass of something delicious as you admire the sunset. The estate is teeming with wildlife from red squirrels to various species of birds, which can be spotted as you navigate the winding trails.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
