The Stables is an ideal choice for families or groups of friends with a tennis court and putting green on-site.. Situated in the grounds of Old Montrose House, the owners’ home, next to the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, are these four holiday properties offering high quality accommodation close to each other, yet totally separate.
The Stables (ref UK11108) is a luxurious, detached conversion on two levels with a high spec finish and chic furnishings. Beautifully renovated and lovingly restored, it combines traditional cottage ambience with contemporary style, and features a walk-around gallery in the centre of the building above the living room. 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 gardener’s 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. Grieve’s Cottage (ref UK11107) is a little gem – a tastefully furnished and spacious, one bedroomed cottage with an open plan living space on the ground floor and a spacious bedroom with sumptuous bed and en-suite shower room on the first floor.
All guests have access to the owners’ large enclosed walled garden, hard 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 that is rich in culture, wildlife and heritage. Montrose sits on a peninsula between the South and North Esk rivers. 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 3½ miles.
