About sharon Jeffrey

.

sharon Jeffrey purchased this cottage in 2002

Why sharon Jeffrey chose Dundee

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.

Guests at the cottage enjoy the peace & freedom to roam the area, beautiful beaches and variety of places to see and activities for all.

Well equipped cottage in private setting with all mod cons

  • 5 of 5

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!

Nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

We did enjoy the cabin very much, everything was clean and well equipped. The owners were always very helpful and did all they could to make our holiday a success.

With a small garden in front of the cabin and a little forest to hike, castles to explore and museums to visit just a few minutes away the place was everything we needed for a few days off on the countryside with our kid and our golden retriever.

Thanks you!

Beautiful, family friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay! The cottage itself is so charming, with more than enough room for our family of 5. The grounds are incredible and you feel very secluded. It is convenient for driving to Arbroath and Dundee and other nearby towns for quick trips, and we did day trips to Pitlochry, Stirling, and to Perth. Our hosts, Sharon and David, were very welcoming and helpful and went out of their way to make recommendations for our family.
