    “Castleton house, former hotel, is ...”
    Castleton house, former hotel, is an amazing property. We are family of 12 couples including 2 children and 2 dogs. The house was perfect for us as everyone had as much privacy as they needed with all en suite rooms, but could be very sociable with the huge communal rooms. The lounge was huge with no TV and log fire, so evenings spent drinking whisky and playing games with enough comfy seats for us all. The dining room was lovely place to have dinner together, next to kitchen so easy to serve up ...
    Castleton house, former hotel, is an amazing property. We are family of 12 couples including 2 children and 2 dogs. The house was perfect for us as everyone had as much privacy as they needed with all en suite rooms, but could be very sociable with the huge communal rooms. The lounge was huge with no TV and log fire, so evenings spent drinking whisky and playing games with enough comfy seats for us all. The dining room was lovely place to have dinner together, next to kitchen so easy to serve up and rectangle table that sat all of us very comfortably. The old bar is still there from when was a hotel and we all had fun making cocktails and 'playing bartender'!. The hot tub was fab and perfect temperature and the snooker room was amazing and both used so much by us all. The dogs had use of garden which was huge and they played outside happily with a little woodland walk that went round the perimeter. The house had everything we needed, the kitchen was extremely well stocked as everything still there from when was catering as a hotel and cosy TV room with sky including sky sports for anyone that did want to watch. We did all manage to squeeze in to watch strictly!! Verity was there to meet us and show us round, and the Colin and Karen were on hand in the house next door if we needed anything and they were all really friendly. If you enjoy walking, then we drove to walks in forests and the national parks as we have dogs didn't want to walk on roads, but you can walk from the house if you want. We did call into few towns around but didn't visit Glamis castle but was told it's lovely. St Andrews was stunning and had bracing walk on beach before best fish and chips ever in the town, highly recommend if you get chance. The only option I scored lower than perfect was the cleanliness and that was only because a couple of the bathrooms weren't as clean as could be and loads of cobwebs everywhere but that wasn't problem as to be expected in house that size and age. We were the last party to stay in Castleton house as it's being sold. It's such a shame cos we would go back tomorrow. I hope whoever buys it gives it all the love and attention the house deserves as such a beautiful property.

About the location

GLAMIS

Kirriemuir 5 miles; Forfar 5 miles; Dundee 12 miles.

The conservation village of Glamis in Angus is best known for being the childhood home of the Queen Mother at Glamis Castle. Glamis is home to the Angus Folk Museum which is run by the National Trust for Scotland and which recreates scenes of Scottish rural life in a row of stone cottages. Just five miles from Glamis is the lovely red sandstone town of Kirriemuir in the valley of Strathmore, regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, which offers some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscape. The town is home to the birthplace of novelist JM Barrie, creator of the much-loved children's character Peter Pan and the house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. A statue of Peter Pan can be found in the town. Forfar is home to the Meffan Museum or you can visit the historic Pictish Stones at Meigle, while the Angus Glens offer great hill walking and climbing. With a fine variety of shops, hotels and pubs in the town and surrounding area, there is something here to suit all tastes.
