About sharon Jeffrey
sharon Jeffrey purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why sharon Jeffrey chose Carnoustie
We have lived in the area for over 30 years and bought our beautiful 88 acres, when the original Panmure Estate was sold in 2002. It is a stunning location,with a constantly changing pattern - a secluded location, yet only 5 mins from the beach and golf course at Carnoustie. Guests at the cottage enjoy the peace & freedom to roam the area, beautiful beaches and variety of places to see and activities for all.

Great cottage in a beautiful area.
We had a fabulous ten days at Monument Cottage. It was great for my in-laws in their 80s, with the downstairs bed and bath, and the whole cottage was immaculate. We found so many things to visit in the area, going as far as Edinburgh and Pitlochry for day trips. Would love to return.
Wonderful stay in a immaculate property
Monument Cottage is located in a wood in a secluded spot close to Monikie. Nice walks, peace and quiet, with plenty of wildlife close by is a plus, but this property is also close to whatever you might want in the area. The cottage contains all the modern amenities and Sharon stocks a great welcome basket to get you going. The only negative was we had to leave, we felt so at home! Wifi worked well, and google maps brings you right to the door.
Lovely welcome with a fire in the wood burner and box of groceries on the kitchen top. The following morning the kids watched the squirrels and woodpeckers whilst eating breakfast before heading out. A lovely peaceful spot, well equipped, a good location and nice folk.
great property in country location
Quiet country setting and not too far from Dundee and golf courses
Well equipped cottage in private setting with all mod cons
This very comfortable cottage was perfect for a quiet getaway but having Dundee within easy reach as well as the beaches and glens close by, it is a great location for any sort of holiday. The property was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and Sharon had left a fabulous welcome basket including fresh scones with cream & jam, crackers & cheese, milk bread & eggs, bottle of wine and other local produce. There is a large outbuilding with laundry facilities and space for bikes etc with plenty of driveway space for parking too. Definitely recommend!
