We used this as a good base to relax over Christmas but also do a wee bit of exploring around a bit of Scotland we've never really seen much of before, be it around Angus, across to Fife or even a short jaunt into the Cairngorms this made for the ideal base. As for the cottage itself with very spacious living areas and master bedroom, 2 other rooms and a very well equiped kitchen along with 3 bath/shower rooms upstairs and WC downstairs made this ideal for the whole family. Also a special thanks to Fiona from Kinblethmont who kindly posted onto her a couple of items we had left behind. Would thoroghly recommend Kinblethmont cottages.

I loved the peace and quiet and my dog loved the walks we went on then slept in front of the log burner, i must say, no internet or mobile signal was especially important as you really appreciated the countryside and wildlife around you, it is also not too far away from the historical town if you needed the shops, it was so nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and cant wait for my next visit, i cannot thank the owners, Dane and Mary enough for the comfort of their beautiful cottage, i will certainly recommend this cottage to everyone i know.

                                                                                                      First impressions of the cottage were great, we could see the Christmas tree lit up through the kitchen window and there was a beautiful wreath on the door. We were able to park right next to the entrance of the cottage so unpacking the car was a breeze. On entering the cottage there is a lovely utility area with washer/dryer (washing powder and tumble dryer sheets provided), 3 drawer freezer, coat hooks, iron and floor space for shoes and wellies. There's also a very spacious toilet with wash hand basin (1 full toilet roll & hand wash provided). Beyond the utility area is the large open plan kitchen, dining and living area which we loved. It was brilliant for spending time together as a family without one person being locked away in a kitchen which we find on some self catering holidays. It had everything you could possibly need and more. The large cupboard under the stairs also had a clothes horse, vacuum cleaner and ironing board. There's a book case with books and cupboard under the window with children's toys which our 3yr old enjoyed playing with. The cottage as a whole is very child friendly but has all the luxurious touches adults will appreciate. We were able to borrow a stair gate and bed guard completely free of charge which were in very good condition. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a lovely family bathroom with P-shape bath and roof window. There are complimentary toiletries, bath, hand and face towels in both bedrooms. There is also a hairdryer provided in each bedroom in the chest of drawers. We ventured out to Glamis Castle to the Christmas Market which was a 30 minute drive away. On the way back we were able to stop off at Tesco and Aldi. Once back we were able to order a pizza from Domino's - There are a few takeaway's in the area which can deliver and also a newsagents called Arbroath Party Time which will also deliver shopping and alcohol. On the grounds is the Walled Garden, being December we took a walk down but only expected to have a look given the weather. We were surprised to find a large box of outdoor games in very good condition so we spent a lot of time playing badminton, skittles, croquet and throwing a Frisbee. There's also a ping pong table with bats and balls. We took a small towel to dry the slide so our daughter could play on it. There's swings for both very young children through to adults! Overall we cannot fault this place at all and we will most definitely be coming back!
