From driving through the gates to going inside the log cabin, it didn't disappoint.

  • 5 of 5

Although it was a short stay, only four nights, really enjoyed our stay. Appreciated welcome bottle of local wine and shortbread! Everything we needed was there. Excellent accommodation. This was my first time in the log cabin, although I have previously stayed in the flat. Highly recommend both. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Loved the place. Just like being home in your own place (minus your personal belongings).

  • 5 of 5

The only regret about this place was not being able to spend actual personal time there. Lovely place to stay with everything one might want, including a yard. Beautiful, clean and with a yard to enjoy as well. Could not ask for a better place to enjoy while in Scotland.

Fantastic, private little family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights, 2 adults 2 kids ages 3 and 11, absolutely briliant, all the facilities in the cabin were fantastic. The whole place was immaculate, attention to detail was highly noteable. Local shortbread and marmolade left out for arrival, all necessary house keeping items already supplied, kitchen ware for cooking, Lego and toys in the summer house for kids to play with, fast BThub wifi, garden and grounds were huge, well kept and enclosed. The overall feel of the place was warm and welcoming. There were lambs and sheep that could be seen from living room window. Wouldnt hesitate to come back again. Perhaps without kids next time for more relaxing. Also left in the cabin was an extremely usefull information pack containing local things to do, walks, maps, where to eat out, local amenities etc. Deffinately 5 stars. If you are looking for somewhere affordable, comfortable and out of the way, for a break, then this is the place for you.

Beautifully furnished and decorated log cabin in lovely countryside close to Dundee.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice now. The accommodation is of high quality and the hosts are very welcoming. If you want to be in the countryside but close to Dundee's amenities the position is perfect.

Quiet break in the Sidlaw hills

  • 5 of 5

We spent half a week in this cabin to unwind at the end of the summer holidays.

The cabin had everything we could need: storage space in the summer house, curious sheep to watch from the lounge & a ideal kitchen including dish washer.

Although Dundee was only a handy 20 minutes away, don't be fooled - the nearest shop is more than five miles away and the cabin is surrounded by woodlands, farmland and hills.
