    “Doesn't get much better than this”

    Sometimes you stumble upon a place that you just want to keep to yourself. You don't want other people finding out about it in case you want to come back. Castleton House is such a place, but in fairness to the owner, I'm writing a review to say it is quite simply a perfect holiday property for a large party. Whatever the weather, whatever the occasion, this fabulous country house will provide you with a memorable experience. ...

    Sometimes you stumble upon a place that you just want to keep to yourself. You don't want other people finding out about it in case you want to come back. Castleton House is such a place, but in fairness to the owner, I'm writing a review to say it is quite simply a perfect holiday property for a large party. Whatever the weather, whatever the occasion, this fabulous country house will provide you with a memorable experience. I spent a week in the house with a party of 11 and two dogs - three generations of my extended family. The house is enormous - it was previously a country house hotel - with six en suite bedrooms and a variety of public rooms. It's grandeur is slightly faded, but this added to its charm, and made us feel extremely comfortable, as did David the owner who was on hand to deal with any issues or advice, but left us in complete privacy. We had fabulous weather and spent plenty of time enjoying the extensive gardens, but having a full size snooker table, TV room, table tennis, table football, a huge number of books scattered around the rooms and a multitude of games meant we'd never have been stuck for ways to amuse ourselves. All of us absolutely loved our stay. It was like having our own hotel, all to ourselves. I hope we'll be back.

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.
