Overview

Arbroath Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4/5. Attractive cottage with two double-bedrooms, one single. Near the lovely coastal village of Auchmithie in Angus, 20 miles north of Dundee. On elevated position with stunning views of the Grampian hills and sea. Lunan Bay, with its magnificent sand dunes and beach, is just four miles to the north. Available for stays of three or more nights. Pets welcome (please see restrictions below). No smoking in cottage. Large garden well stocked with flowers, shrubs and trees.

From Wood Cottage's elevated position there are stunning views of the sea and, to the west, the Grampians. It is half a mile inland of the pretty coastal village of Auchmithie and four miles north of Arbroath whose abbey witnessed the signing in 1320 of the declaration of Scotland's independence from England. Wood Cottage is perfect for exploring the rocky Angus coastline while a 45 minute drive takes you into the beautiful Angus glens. The area is ideal for walkers, bird-watchers, golfers and nature lovers. Lunan Bay is a short drive (or long walk!) away. There are two renowned restaurants nearby. In short, a great holiday destination.

2nd time round

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Wood Cottage with my wife and 2 young children.

This is the second time we stayed at Wood Cottage, and each time has been equally relaxing and enjoyable.

The location of the cottage is fantastic, with fantastic views out to sea at one side, and spectacular views of the Angus Glens out the other.

Lunan Bay is a stunning beach within walking distance, or a 5-minute drive depending on which you prefer.

Montreithmont Forest is not too far away, which is a fantastic place to go walking, and take in some of the Scottish Wildlife.

Dundee, Arbroath, Montrose & Brechin are all within easy reach.

Wood Cottage itself is fantastic and has everything you need in a self-catering cottage.

The garden wraps round the whole house, and is walled and gated, so a safe place for children to play.

The inside of the house is very homely and comfortable. The wood burner in the living room is fantastic on a chilly evening, and having the logs provided is a welcome treat.

We found the whole place very tranquil and comfortable. Very much a home from home feel.

There is a fantastic book collection available, of which my wife and I had read several during our stay. It's good as the books are incredibly interesting, especially "Astronomy for Dummies". Go outside Wood Cottage on a clear night and you'll see why.

My whole family loved our stay at Wood Cottage, and for us the only downside is having to leave each time.

I would highly recommend Wood Cottage for families with children, and anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits.

Great stay at Wood cottage

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights at wood cottage, and was a very good stay, everything that was needed was available in the cottage, and the cottage is of a very high standard.

Location was good, peaceful but amenities in Arbroath a short drive away.

Would recommend this cottage.

Wood cottage

Arrived for one week. The cottage was well above expectations I fully reccommend this cottage to anyone. Excellent for tsking the dog, and the small things like having free firewood is a bonus. We will certainly return.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage that was warm, comfortable and homely. We have rented several cottages in Scotland and although some of them have been lovely we have never recieved the warm welcome as we did from Jacquie and her daughter at Wood Cottage.

The little extras made such a huge difference...after a long journey it was great to find tea,coffee and milk in the fridge. The cupboards were full of condiments which saved having to buy lots of fiddly bits that you might only use once. Thank you for the bay leaf!!! There was a very welcoming notice inviting visitors to use whatever they liked from the cupboards. It's almost like a pay it forward system as we happily left items that we didn't want to transport that someone else may be able to use.

The dog loved the garden and it was lovely staying in the warm and being able to watch him potter around exploring in an enclosed environment. A lovely little Robin visited daily and even flew into the kitchen, took some bread and then sat on the window ledge to be let out!

The bookshelf provided an interesting array of books and the artwork was topic of conversations.

Lovely walk down to Authmithie and plenty to do without travelling too far. We did a fair bit of driving up to the Cairngorms and it was always lovely to arrive 'home'.

We would recommend this to everyone. And we found the rental price fantastic...we have paid much more for much less. We will stay here again hopefully.

Wonderful Wood Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the cottage by Jackie who was very helpful and showed us round. The cottage is well appointed and has everything you need for your stay. I think this is the first cottage to have a pastry brush and a set of golf clubs!. Appreciated having tea coffee and milk on arrival for a much needed cuppa after a long journey. Weather was poor so didn't see as much as we wanted but Lunan Bay. Montrose basin and St Cyrus sands are lovely. A trip to Forfar is a must for a steak and onion Bridie. We got one straight from the oven and it was delicious. We liked the décor and artwork in the cottage and have come home with a few ideas for our own home. Frank is also going to pursue meditation. He read about it at the cottage and found the themes very useful as he gets very stressed and works too hard

We would certainly recommend Wood Cottage to anyone but the secure garden makes it perfect for anyone with dogs and/or children.
