The Chauffeur's cottage is a lovely self catering cottage sleeping 6 (+ zed bed) in the heart of the private Kinblethmont Estate, 4 miles from Arbroath. It has everything you need when you are away from home, lots of bathrooms, a big comfy sitting room, free WiFi (rural connection) dishwasher and lots of useful kitchen equipment. There is plenty of hot water and heating from our bio boiler fuelled by woodchips from Kinblethmont estate. It is semi detached to the Studio next door and the two can be joined for larger groups of 10.
Upstairs there are a large double bedroom with ensuite shower room and two twin bedrooms which can be made into doubles if required. There are also a two extra bathrooms. Downstairs is a large kitchen diner with modern kitchen including a dishwasher and also a washer dryer. The sitting room is very spacious with plenty of comfortable seating, wood burning stove and large digital TV. There is also a downstairs WC.
There is a terraced area outside for BBQs etc a grassed area and lots of woodland paths on the estate, one of which takes you via 3 minute walk to the walled garden. The walled garden has proved very popular, it is a very large sunny, sheltered area with apple trees, play equipment for young children, table tennis, badminton, and a ball play area.
The Chauffeurs Cottage is part of Kinblethmont estate and is in an area of Angus that tends to be much drier than other parts of Scotland and there is plenty to do on the estate in lovely weather - playing in the walled garden, walks, bird/wildlife spotting and why not rent one of our hybrid bikes? Our local town Arbroath is 5 miles way. As well as being very convenient for its late opening supermarkets it has an atmospheric harbour, some lovely restaurants, historic ruins and an excellent children's play park.
Our guests have often been amazed at all there is to do here, we have a taste of all that Scotland is famous for within an hour's drive, beautiful hills, excellent golf courses, castles, beaches, and distilleries with historic Dundee with its visitor attractions only half hour away, no wonder so many of them want to come back.
