  • Charming hideaway with wood burner for those cosy nights in
  • Lovely open-plan lounge/diner to relax and enjoy family time
Property code: CA300

This charming stone house hidden away on the hillside gives you a wonderful space to rest and relax after a day out. Take a walk around nearby Edzell Castle and Garden (4.5 miles) where the ruins are surrounded by beautiful grounds. Pack a picnic and once you're done exploring, stretch out on the grass. For keen walkers and hikers, the edge of the Cairngorms National Park can be reached in 17 miles, and on the way stop at Glenesk Folk Museum (12 miles). The coast is also well within reach: drive over to the village of St Cyrus (16 miles), where there is a National Nature Reserve and beach to discover.

A warm and welcoming single-storey property, the decor throughout is bright and cheerful with colourful soft furnishings. The heart of the house is the lounge/diner, a sociable space for evenings spent together. Light the wood burner and cosy down onto one of the sofas, with the TV on or a good book on your knee. Enjoy meals sat round the wooden dining table, and in the summertime open the French doors to let the breeze in or simply admire the view. Walk through to the kitchen, where the electric oven and ceramic hob and plenty of countertop space will let you cook up a storm. On the other side of the house, across the hall from the living areas, are the two quaint bedrooms. The king-size (a zip and link which can be turned into a twin on request) comes with its own stylish en-suite with shower and WC. The twin benefits from the use of the separate family bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC, where you can soak your cares away.

We really enjoyed our stay in this cosy, clean and well equipped cottage. Its location is very tranquil and has many walking options straight from the door. It takes a bit of time to get to and from the main road, but for a holiday this isn't too much of an issue. Edzell is a great village with quite a few good shops and cafe etc

The cottage is stunning, master bedroom has ensuite. Plenty of space and a log fire. You literally just need to turn up with your clothes and food. We went up the hill a bit at the back and flew out kites. The views are stunning and I was really relaxed. Thankyou for making everything amazing.

We stayed in the cottage for a week over Christmas 2022. The accommodation has everything you could need, it was very comfortable and the views are stunning. We can highly recommend staying here for a total get away from it all holiday, the log burner really added to the sense of relaxation. The welcome pack waiting for us was much appreciated and Read morethe home made jam was superb, unlike any you can buy in the shops. We would definitely stay here again. Hide

Just fabulous. Well maintained, so comfortable and welcoming. Little things like a pizza cutter, shaver charger points-lovely welcome pack. The Myles family were all so lovely & friendly. Great communication from Caroline- she contacted us about 3 weeks prior to our holiday. Plenty of walks from the doorstep. Big boot tray in the hall No light pollRead moreution- never seen so many stars. The track up to the cottage- I found a gentle 11mph was sufficient to smooth out the bumps. Hide

The cottage is a really comfortable home from home, everything you could want including things I really dont want to use on holiday like the washing machine. But its great to know its there if you do need it. The beds are really comfortable with the bonus of the master room have the opinion of being a double (large) or twin. Fantastic views from evRead moreery window. Hide
