We will definitely be returning

Wonderful Cottage in the woods, lovely accommodation with everything you could possibly need.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 nights at Monument Cottage. The Jeffrey's are friendly and welcoming hosts and to arrive to a lovely basket of essentials was an added bonus. Our dogs were also welcome and were in paradise in all the surrounding woodland!! The delight of this Cottage is its very peaceful location, but at the same time is in easy reach of Dundee, forestry, the coast and the Cairngorms. We would love to return.

Truly relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay over Christmas, very relaxing and quiet. Property is equipped to a very good standard, and very warm and cosy. The property is located at the end of a long drive and you are not overlooked by anyone, giving you a real sense of getting away from it all. Gift basket was waiting on our arrival and Sharon popped down later that evening to check we had everything we needed, even rustling up some DVDs for my son to watch. The owners go above and beyond when it comes to making sure the property is well stocked with every day needs, it is the first tme ever I have come home not having to buy more toilet rolls, dishwasher or laundry products - even telling me they will bring more down if we run out!! Not sure about other supermarkets, but can confirm Tesco deliver here if you don't fancy a supermarket trip. If you have dogs, there are some lovely walks around the property with country parks and beaches within a few minutes drive. My 2 hounds truly had the time of their lives. Would not hesitate in recommending this property, my son even cried when he had to leave, and hope to stay here again some day :)

Stunning woodland location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic stay for our family of 5 (including 3 children) at this lovely cottage. Woodland setting was both private and pretty - it was especially lovely being able to lie in bed and watch the autumn leaves drift past the roof windows. We arrived in the dark after a long drive, and it was wonderful to come in to a lit fire and a well stocked welcome basket. Sharon was a great host, and the cottage has many thoughtful touches. Local area had plenty to see and do. We particuarly enjoyed a day at Glamis Castle (the Queen Mother's childhood home), which had an excellent guided tour, along with a great playground and grounds. We also enjoyed a drive along the coast to the spectacular Dunnottar Castle.

The Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

Monument Cottage is a brilliantly appointed property in a beautiful location...we wouldn't hesitate to recommend! We have 2 dogs so loved being able to walk them off the lead in the surrounding woodland straight from the door. The property itself is tranquil, clean, cozy and we didnt want for anything. Huge thank you for the very generous welcome pack! We certainly plan to return.
