About the property

Top Quality 2 bedroom cottage - sleeps 4

We are very excited about the newly converted Stables. We have used very high quality materials for this beautiful conversion from the solid oak staircase to the polished granite work surfaces in the kitchens. To make your stay as comfortable as possible, there is plenty of space to store things, and extra touches such as dishwashers, wifi and 3d TV with full Sky package (including sky sports) to make your stay a real holiday. It is decorated in a cool contemporary style with original artworks from Kinblethmont Gallery.

The joining door to the Coach House can be opened up allowing accommodation for up to 14 people across the building. A larger dining table can be setup seating 16 people for special family occasions.

We like to be green here so the Coach House and Stables are kept cosy and warm with underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs - all fuelled by wood chips from Kinblethmont estate. .

The old walled garden for Kinblethmont house has been made into an amenity area for the cottages with garden games and play equipment and is a 5 minute walk via woodland paths from the cottages.

Kinblethmont is the perfect place to base yourself for a holiday at any time of year. The Stables is in the heart of the idyllic Kinblethmont Estate surrounded by woodland filled with birdsong yet are well placed for visiting many of Scotland's tourist attractions further afield .

Glamis Castle, Donnattar castle, RRS Discovery in Dundee are just a few of the sights close by. It is a haven for golfer with Letham Grange next door and the famous courses at Carnoustie, St Andrews and many other courses not far away. There are many beaches to chose from - Lunan Bay - a famous award winning natural beach is just 5 miles away. From the stables there are farm tracks and walks (or bicycle rides) through woodland or up the hill from where there are extensive views of the Angus hills and the sea.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely week at The Stables ............. We managed to pack a lot in as usual with many stately homes visited including Glamis Castle, Scone Palace, and the House of Dun. Had a day in Dundee to visit The Discovery and the Verdant Works. Did plenty of walks including walking back from Arbroath to Kinblethmont firstly via the old railway path via St Vigeans and secondly via the coast path to Auchmithie and then through West Woods of Ethie. Also managed visits to Arbroath Abbey and the Signals Museum.Other places visited was a circular walk from Ferryden via Scourdie Lighthouse and Boddin Point, a climb up Mount Battock which was above the cloud sheet, a walk around Forfar Loch and the hill top war memorial, and brief visits to Montrose and Brechin.

Thank you making our stay at The stables so pleasant .............

Ideal proprty for ‘getting away from it all’.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in ‘The Stables’ a couple of time this year and have found the property to be ideal for ‘getting away from it all’.

It is very stylish, comfortable, clean and well equipped to enjoy a few days of relaxation and stress free living. The kitchen provides all the required necessities expected of a self-catering apartment, with instant hot water on tap and a full range of crockery, pots and pans etc. We were provided with a fresh pint of milk, shortbread, crackers and a small pot of delicious jam, which were unexpected gifts.

The woodland grounds of Kinblethmont are quiet and peaceful to walk around and the walled garden is well looked after and is filled with beautiful trees, plants and shrubs etc. The ironwork on the gates is very ornate.


The underfloor heating downstairs is just wonderful to walk on.

Comfortable beds.

Walks in the grounds.

Homeliness of the wood fired stove, although the central heating is very efficient.

The eco-friendly environment.

The friendly manager of the property provided excellent customer service.

Excellent location for exploring the East Coast and surrounding villages.

I have no hesitation in recommending the property to my family and friends.

Everything you need in a beautiful cottage. Lovely walks. Loved the walled garden. My husband got a big kick out of the wood burning fire. Would highly recommend and we will be returning.

Owner's Response: I am so glad these guest enjoyed their stay. When Kinblethmont Coach House and the Stables are joined together it can sleep up to 14 adults and children in 6 bedrooms. We can make a long table in the sunroom area so everyone can eat comfortably together. It is great in the colder months as whatever is happening outside, it is warm and cosy inside with the underfloor heating, and woodburning stove.

The Stables is a fantastic home from home place to stay and furnished to a very high standard. It has everything that you need.....washing machine, dryer, clothes line and pegs, fridge, freezer, lots of pots, pans and utensils, Hoover, dish washer, oven, microwave, ironing board, iron, clothes horse and cleaning equipment. We loved everything about The Stables and Kinblethmonts grounds are very impressive.

We met Jessica and Johnathan both very polite, friendly and helpful.

This was a great base for us and we travelled to different places but the boys loved to come back to their "new house" to follow the different routes around kinblethmont to the walled garden where they played on the park equipment, played football and table tennis. There is more to do there e.g. Badminton, rugby, croquet, picnic benches, barbecue area.

All in all you would not be disappointed staying here and we will certainly return without a doubt when we return to this area of Scotland.
