About sharon Jeffrey

.

sharon Jeffrey purchased this cottage in 2002

Why sharon Jeffrey chose Angus & Dundee

We have lived in the area for over 30 years and bought our beautiful 88 acres, when the original Panmure Estate was sold in 2002. It is a stunning location,with a constantly changing pattern - a secluded location, yet only 5 mins from the beach.

Guests at the cottage enjoy the peace & freedom to roam the area, beautiful beaches and variety of places to see and activities for all.

Lovely

We had a lovely few days in this property. The garden was full of spring flowers, birds and squirrels and the cottage was very welcoming. It was cosy and clean and had everything we needed. The gift basket was much appreciated, as was the fridge full of essentials.

  • 5 of 5

We were totally amazed with this cottage as we drove up to it. Getting in to the cottage wad even more amazing.

We loved our stay and the welcome basket was very well appreciated.

We look forward to coming back again in the future.

The home owners were very friendly and had some very good tips on places to go and things to do.

The local wildlife was great and very interesting to watch.

Our kids loved the garden and the monument.

I cannot recommend any higher this cottage.

We will definitely recommend this to our family and friends.

Many thanks.

Great cottage. A home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Lovely welcome basket, over flowing with tasty essentials and goodies. Immaculate, homely and comfortable. Sharon popped over to welcome us and to ensure that we had settled in. Could not ask for anything more from a holiday cottage. Looking forward to returning.

Truly wonderful cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

From the lovely welcome from Sharon and a very appreciated welcome pack after a long journey. Everything about our time at this most well equipped cottage and fantastic location was truly magic. Being able to explore the extensive woodland from the bottom of your garden whenever was fab. Wally our dog has never had so many walks. The cottage had everything and was so cosy. The location was in a rural location but only 10 mins from supermarkets etc. There are plenty of glorious beaches we liked Tentsmuir as massive. We also visited Lunan Bay , smaller but great sand dunes and caves to explore . Summing up would jump at the chance to go back. Thank you Sharon & Dave for the best holiday.x

October Weekend Break

  • 4 of 5

On arrival at Monument cottage we were delighted at how secluded this place was ( thankfully the owner had provided excellent directions). Our first impressions of the cottage, after driving past the impressive monument, was of a homely and welcoming accommodation. The superb welcome pack of food was the best I have ever had, bread, home made jam, coffee, tea, shortbread and a selection of goodies in the fridge. As it was October and lashing rain, the owner had set the fire for us, however we felt that the central heating was cosy and adequate. All the bedrooms were clean, spacious and modern, however felt that the living area requires updating. If the weather had been better, this would be an ideal location from where to explore the immediate surroundings, a tranquil and interesting wooded area. Although secluded, this property is also extremely handy for local attractions in Dundee, Arbroath, Carnoustie, Broughty Ferry, Monifieth and we even went to Glamis Castle. Everything one needs was provided, a real home from home and having the owner nearby was reassuring and provided good customer service.
