Situated on a bank of the South Esk this stunning house, with recently upgraded Wi-Fi, is a wonderful place for multi generation celebration parties of up to ten adults and four children. Sorry no hot tubs, stag or hen parties allowed but adult groups of walkers, golfers, fishermen and those keen to explore all that Angus has to offer are most welcome as well as up to two well behaved dogs.
On the ground floor one end of the L shaped living area has a well equipped kitchen, a breakfast bar and a large dining table. Next to this is the atrium which is divided from the television area by a double sided wood burning stove; the chairs in the former can be stacked to make a large play space. There is also a shower room and an utility area with a washing machine and storage with extra kitchen equipment. The playroom is full of toys for small children and has an air hockey table and exercise bike for older ones. A good selection of books, games and puzzles to suit all tastes is spread around the house. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with king size beds, and a third with two singles, as well as a bathroom and a separate shower room. There is also a drawing room either for those wishing a bit of peace and quiet or for a cosy get together for adults in the evening. The second floor has another two bedrooms with king size beds which have the possibility of having two full sized single beds made up in each one. There is also a bathroom on this floor. Up to three cots can be provided at no extra charge as well as everything a baby could possibly need.
The garden has separate areas. In front of the house is a good spot for the barbecue convenient for the large table with a parasol. This has uninterrupted views of the river as it is separated from the field beyond by a ha ha with steps down to the lower level. There is a raised area behind the house for enjoying the views up and down the river and a large enclosed play area with swings, slide, large trampoline, playhouse and sandpit for smaller children. For older ones there are Ninja and slack lines, a football net and rebounder, badminton set, boules, Molke and a swing ball to name but a few of the activities to be found. Team games and obstacle courses are very popular amongst our guests. Dark skies make it an ideal place for star gazing.
Angus has enough variety to suit every taste from its beautiful hills, beaches, salmon rivers, trout lakes, golf courses, gin and whisky distilleries and adventure parks galore as well as its many indoor attractions. If art and culture appeal to you Dundee, Perth and Aberdeen all have museums, art galleries and theatres as well as many good restaurants. Glamis castle, where the late Queen mother was born, is a popular attraction as are the several National Trust properties within easy reach. Crathes and Drum castles are only an hour away over the Cairn o’ Mount which must be one of the most beautiful drives in Scotland. Although secluded the house is only 3/4 of a mile from the Drover’s inn, an excellent pub and restaurant, and 5 miles from Kirriemuir the birthplace of J M Barrie. If golf is your sport a course can be found there as well as ones in Brechin, Edzel, Forfar and at Carnoustie. Fishing rights do not belong to the house and permits must be booked well in advance from Inshewan Estates for the beat below the house, Finavon Castle Fishings further down the river or Cortachy for the beat above. An email with places of interest is sent out to people before they come to stay and there is a large selection of leaflets about local attractions to be found in the house.
Please note: There is a £200 good housekeeping bond on this property to be paid direct to the owner before arrival which will be refunded once the house has been checked; usually on the day of departure.
