Nature enthusiasts will love exploring Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, which is adjacent to this lovely upside-down property.
Situated in the grounds of Old Montrose House, the owners’ home, next to the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, are these two holiday properties. Near to each other but totally separate, The Old Gasworks Building (ref UKC2272) is a delightful detached cottage, which has been built on a historic site, and provides a very stylish and comfortable holiday home. Gardener’s Cottage (ref UKC3040) is a gorgeous, upside-down, detached cottage which was formerly the head gardeners house in times past. Furnished with style and flair, this quirky cottage is wonderfully situated in a secluded spot in the grounds, with a private sunny garden and patio off the main bedroom where you can soak up the sun in peace. All guests have access to the owners’ large enclosed walled garden, hard court tennis court and small putting green. The idyllic peaceful surroundings are complemented by a structured walled garden and other features, including a rose garden intersected by pathways to meander through and stop to enjoy the scents of summer.
Just a short drive from the centre of Montrose, this is an ideal base from which to explore an area which is rich in culture, wildlife and heritage. Montrose sits on a peninsula between the rivers South and North Esk. The magnificent sandy beach, golf courses and links area are very popular with tourists, as well as additional leisure facilities including tennis courts, bowling greens and parks. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy the adjacent Montrose Basin and Wildlife Centre, where thousands of pink footed geese, ospreys and eider ducks can be seen. Inland there are miles of walking trails ideal for families or serious hikers. The Angus Glens offer stunning scenery and access to some of Scotland’s most striking munros. There are plenty of good cycle routes around the cottage and throughout the area, and for golfers there are over 30 courses within an hour’s drive, including the championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews. Excellent beaches including Lunan Bay, Arbroath and St Cyrus are nearby and are ideal for surfing or enjoying a barbecue. Fishing can also be found within easy reach. Beach 4 miles. Shop 3¾ miles, pub 3 miles and restaurant 2 miles.
The Old Gasworks Building (ref UKC2272) and Gardener’s Cottage (ref UKC3040) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.
