  • "Beautiful cottage in a delightful setting; well presented and very comfortable with everything that you need for a relaxing holiday and is a great base for exploring the local area."

    Andrea and Peter are perfect hosts who made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend Bannatyne Lodge.

  • "We were blessed with very good weather making Bannatyne Lodge even more enjoyable."

    It's very airy and the lounge is very comfortable. Enclosed, private garden at the back, morning sunshine front and back, but plenty of shade can be found at the back in the afternoon. You can be straight out of the gate and onto a number of paths, ideal for dog walking. Or, you are on the western outskirts of the Sidlaw Hills and with Pitlochry and Braemar being just over an hour's drive away you are in a good location for more serious hill walking. Newtyle itself, a small, quiet friendly village, small well stocked post office / general shop ( bigger supermarkets, 20 minutes drive away), award winning butchers ( Piries, 'World Champion' pies and sausages!) and small, clean, friendly pub, The Commercial with good 'join in' acoustic music sessions, Wednesday nights. Andrea and Peter, owners of the Lodge, very friendly, considerate, helpful but very respectful too of your privacy. Our thanks to them. Overall, Bannatyne Lodge a wonderful place to stay for a quiet, relaxed holiday on the outskirts of a village which is a great place for easier local walks but with easy access to coast and mountain.

    The living room is particularly spacious and cosy and Andrea and Peter were welcoming, friendly and helpful with lots of recommendations of things to do in the area with our two kids. We had a lovely week and would recommend a stay here to anyone wanting to explore this part of Scotland or just to enjoy the Angus scenery around Newtyle. Great views from Kinpurney Keep on a clear day and superb Scotch pies from the butcher!

  • "Bannatyne Lodge was the perfect setting and location for our stay in Angus."

    The Lodge was stylish but practical with a secure garden that made for a comfortable stay with our large black labrador. Excellent network of dog walking paths from the front door and red squirrels at the bottom of the garden. The owners Peter and Andrea were there if needed and we enjoyed being invited to toast the beacon lighting from their beautiful garden. Newtyle natives were warm and friendly and we enjoyed fish and chips on Monday from the visiting van and a take away from the hotel on Wednesday. Really good location to explore the glens, Glamis, Dundee and the coast. We are looking forward to our next visit.

    The owners are brilliant and exceptionally helpful. Very clean and has everything in the kitchen you could possibly need in my opinion. Plenty of room for dining and jigsaws and reading! Massive lounge with comfy sofas. Lovely patio area in beautiful garden. So close to countryside walks and down the lane to the Church. There is a village shop and an award winning butcher too. Brilliant. Also a pub that does meals at lunch and night, plus takeaway. And a visiting mobile fish and chip van on Monday evenings. Such a lovely break in a lovely place. Many thanks indeed.

    We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting for our holiday! The cottage was immaculately clean when we arrived and had absolutely everything we could possibly need for our stay. The photos on the site do not do the cottage justice. The owners were an absolute pleasure to meet and so very helpful and generous. The cottage is set in a beautifully peaceful location but still close enough for us to venture out for activities in the area. The bike trails and walks around the location were lovely and right on our doorstep! So pleased we found this gem of a cottage with such lovely owners!

  • "We were disappointed with certain aspects, it advised a Bbq ,non, iron and ironing board, non, the house smelt of dogs ,I am allergic to dust, you could literally right your name in the dust in certain areas, around the fireplace, s."

    The wood burner had not been cleaned it was filthy, we did not use. The kitchen was clean, along with the bathrooms and bedrooms. The living room was very cold, the furniture was uncared for and covered in dog hair. The tv was to small for the room, had to strain to see. This property has potential but does not deserve the premium price tag, If offering supply, in good working order clean and loved.There is an epidemic which requires a high standard of cleanliness, this didn't reach every day standards. I would re think your star rating on this property. The area is beautiful, wonderful walks and outdoor pursuits, but these could be had at any accommodation in the area. No control of the heating, and some cold evenings.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your valuable feedback. We are so sorry to hear of your disappointment in the property. The property was thoroughly cleaned in line with Covid-19 cleanliness guidelines and checked before your stay to ensure that it was suitable for your arrival. We did advise you upon your arrival that if you had any issues, no matter how small, to let us know as soon as possible. Had we been made aware that you were unhappy at the time of your stay, we would have come immediately to rectify this for you. We are are sorry that you found the living room to be cold, we had the log fire set up with additional logs and kindling ready for you to light upon arrival. As you did not make use of this, this may be why you found the property to be cold. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the local area. Take care and stay safe! Property Owner

    Yet. The cottage was set in the most beautiful part of Angus. The cottage was huge, well equipped with such lovely touches of eggs delivered to us and left on our door step. Freshly cut flowers in the house, beautiful large bath, comfy beds and a large enclosed garden for our dog to spend ages sniffing around as there was a mature garden with lots of trees, just beautiful! A beautiful log burner with complimentary logs was put on in July in Scotland but I think that was more out of decadence and sheer luxury but made for a very special evening. We all so enjoyed our weeks holiday at this beautiful holiday home and cannot recommend it highly enough, thank you so much!

  • "The cottage is situated in a very charming and remote part of the village which ensures that you feel completely immersed in the countryside and local walks are literally a stones throw from the cottage."

    There are some lovely touches within the cottage making it feel homely as well as cosy, we did indulge in the wood burning stove which was a favourite of ours. Taking into consideration the current Covid-19 situation our host was very careful to ensure everything was done at a distance and they were not intrusive at all, despite being only at the end of the driveway if we did need them. Considering current climes we did find the lack of a fridge freezer, or indeed a stand alone freezer slightly limiting in that we needed to do a shop everyday as we were not able to dine out in the local area, equally as we did all our cooking for the week in the cottage the hob was rather dated and without markings, rather confusing to work, however, the oven was super. A few minor updates to the kitchen would make this a 10 out of 10 for us. We could not fault anything else, even the sun shone most of the week!

The property

This superb detached traditional cottage is situated in the grounds of the owners’ home, just a two minute walk from the village of Newtyle and close to both the town of Kirriemuir and the city of Dundee.

In a quiet location, this property is an ideal base for a couple or small family wishing to explore this part of Scotland with the coast and the Cairngorms National Park within reach.

As you enter this delightful holiday home you will find the kitchen with small dining area on the left, a great place to eat breakfast or a quick meal before venturing out, perhaps to enjoy a long walk or cycle ride.

There’s a shower room also on the ground floor with a more formal dining room, before relaxing in the wonderful sitting room in front of the cosy woodburning stove.

Is there a better way to end the day than to snuggle up with your loved ones whilst the flames of the stove flicker away?

Upstairs and completing the accommodation in this charming cottage are two delightful bedrooms; a double and a twin, together with a bathroom.

Outside is off road parking and a large rear lawned garden, where your pet dogs can use up any excess energy whilst you unwind after another fun-filled day in this part of Scotland.

The village of Newtyle has a shop, pub and Post Office, as well as an award-winning butcher.

Whilst staying at this lovely cottage a visit to Glamis Castle is a must and aside from walks and cycling you can enjoy fishing and golf in the area.

An excellent holiday home with plenty to see and do in the area.
