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.
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.
Very nice and modern property with the all comforts of home. Big spacious bedrooms. Secluded surroundings and picturesque.
Will definitely return for future holidays.
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.
