  • "Brilliant property, really well equipped."

    The only thing it didn't have was a drying rack for clothes, although Donna quickly responded to my request saying the washing machine had a drying function and also offered to bring one round for me to use. Great communication, good location. A little too far for us to walk to any amenities but a short drive down the road!

  • "Lovely cottage to stay in."

    Definitely one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in. Well equipped and well looked after. Plenty of walks nearby, Kirriemuir is a lovely place to visit. Would recommend visiting the Airlie Arms for a meal.

  • "A lovely farm cottage with outstanding owners."

    Sadly we had to cut short our week stay due to our dog taking ill. We were very sorry to leave here as we were really enjoying it. Hope to visit again. Back home our near 16 year old dog was diagnosed with liver and kidney problems.

    Hello Philip, Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely feedback. I do hope your doggy is on the mend now. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best regards Donna Property Owner

  • "Lovely peaceful location for exploring Angus, the east coast and even NT properties in Aberdeenshire."

    The cottage was ideal for our needs and the owner put a lot of thought into its presentation and the comfort it provided for a relaxing holiday. Extremely well equipped for all our needs and loved the shower. Outside space excellent for our dog and he even enjoyed making friends with his neighbours over the fence- the cows,calves and even the bull

    Lovely garden for the dog to run around too. Great as a base for plenty of great walks. Highly recommend visiting. Glen clova, Backwater reservoir, lunan bay beach and Glamis castle all great for walking whether you have a dog or not. Our pup loved it.

  • "I started my 3 weeks Scotland holiday in Steading cottage for a week in 2023."

    I am very keen of cleanliness, and in the past I was a hotel housekeeper spot-checker manager. I exactly know it's not easy to hit my standard. But Steading cottage made it:) I didn't find anything below my (very high) standard, even ready ice cubes were waiting in the freezer to make my gin-tonic happy after my long journey! The owner is a friendly, kind and smiley lady, and a very expert host, with this spotlessly cleanliness I would even bet her star sign is Virgo (just like mine). The cottage is a separate house next to a working farm, but I never heard any disturbing noise. True, that I was out every day for long, but when I was back, the farm was quiet and very-very peaceful. Just what I love! I spent some evenings in the small, well maintained beautiful garden, and also in the front of the farm, leaning on the stone fence watching the beautiful sunset far above the hills. Fabulous viewing! It is also in a very good location, 3 minutes drive from the little town Kirriemuir. Also, I could reach all attractions in the middle and middle-east Scotland, so among other things I visited Blair castle, Highland safaris, Balmoral castle, Dunninald castle, the east-coast, Drum castle, Pitmedden garden, Hopetoun house, The Kelpies and so many on. True, that I found the B roads very bumpy and potholed, some of them flooded, but this was the case almost all of the east; while later on the west side, near the lakes and mountains, the roads were well maintained and perfect (more tourists-more money). I still loved the whole east, too, with its rolling hills, further horizon and gentle sights, and to enjoy all of these, Steading cottage was a perfect starting point. I loved to get back there after a long and busy day, and have a deep restful sleep on the perfect mattress in the comfortable, clean house! I tried a few cottages all UK-wide within my holidays, but so far this cottage is among the first! I hope to go back one day:)

    The weather was great and the lovely garden was a real bonus. So nice to sit there and just enjoy the views and sunshine. Owners were all lovely and so helpful and the cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Definitely would come back and stay again. Thank you for a lovely week away. .

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    It had everything you needed for a short stay. The goodie bag and the fresh milk was very welcome on our arrival. It was lovely seeing the cows; although we did have a laugh when my grandson woke on the first morning thinking he was dreaming and then realised it was the cows bellowing! Thanks again.

    Hi June, Thank you for your lovely feedback. Glad you enjoyed seeing the cows on the farm, they are away out to the grass today as the sun has finally appeared :-) Best regards Donna Property Owner

  • "Steading Cottage is comfortable, clean with everything you need."

    The owners were v welcoming and couldn't do enough to make sure everything was fine. There's a bright spacious kitchen with plenty of seating and a cosy sitting room. We've both enjoyed being part of the farm, and despite it being calving have not been disturbed by any noises. There have been some magical sunrises across the fields. It's a good base for travelling around this part of Angus.

    Lovely comfortable cottage in an idyllic location on a working farm. Just need to remember that during harvest time corn dryers are likely to be in use and they are literally next to the cottage. Extremely noisy!

    Hi Carol, Thank you for your feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. As you quite rightly said we are located on a working farm and at certain times of the year there may be machinery noise, we hope this did not disrupt your stay too much.
