stayed here on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. the stables is in a beautiful location with good outdoor space and high spec facilities inside. Has everything you will need and very clean, spacious and comfortable.Arbroath, Lundan Bay and whole Angus costal route a short drive away and the walled garden in the grounds of the estate are lovely for an evening walk or as a play area for children. highly recommended.
We stayed in the Stables cottage in mid October in 2019 and were greatly impressed not only by the standard of the cottage, but by the facilities in the estate grounds.
The Stables cottage sleeps 4 in 2 ensuite bedrooms. Downstairs, we had an open plan living room / dining area / kitchen. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped. But the best thing is teh setting in the middle of a large country estate which you are free to wander around.
Our son loved exploring the walled garden which was an unexpected bonus with its table tennis, picnic tables, built in barbeques and fruit orchard with enormous cooking apples were falling off the trees. We quite literally felt like Lord and Lady of the manor as there was no sign of anyone else about even though one other family was staying at the same time as us. The grounds are so large that you have your privacy,
The cottage had piping hot water and good central heating. It took us a few nights to find the right settings so that the cottage didn't get too warm at night, but we like a cool house so most folk would probably be delighted with the temperature,
Nature lovers will enjoy watching roe deer emerging from the woods and we caught glimpses of a few birds of prey.
We would highly recommend Kinblethmont if you are planning a staycation in Angus or if you have plans for a large family gathering as some of the cottages can be linked to give you space for a large group.
Best of all, the price was exceptionally reasonable.
I was visiting family in the arbroath area and the Stables
Cottage was perfect. The country location was perfect for me as it’s only a short drive into Arbroath. The cottage itself is very comfortable and immaculately clean. I found everything I needed and that’s quite unusual as I like to cook. The grounds of Kinblethmont house are magical and there are many paths and trails to ride a bike or walk. The Owners are really nice people and available should you need anything. I will definitely book this place again.
Everything about the Stables was amazing, the location and the set up where perfect. Both our children loved the walled garden , the games that where hidden and all the wild life we got to see. The house was comfy and clean and a real joy to come home after a day adventuring. Wish would would have booked 10 days !
The Stables is an amazing place to stay, it was far more than my family were expecting. We travelled with two boys aged 10 and 6 and they both loved every second of our stay. It is truly like home from home and finished to a very high standard, even has toys for the kids which was a great touch!. Check in and out is the best we have ever come across and the Ramsay family are really friendly and helpful. We had lovely welcoming touches, milk in the fridge, shortbread biscuits, chocolate bunnies, jam and oatcakes...thank you.
The different marked paths to the walled garden are fun to use and the garden is huge, we played football, table tennis and used the park but they had much more to do if you wanted eg badminton, rugby, croquet, bbq's
Its a great base to explore surrounding towns etc, we loved Lunan Bay, a stunning place to visit and the boys had great fun on the beach and playing on the sand dunes. Arbroath town has what you need and supermarkets in easy reach. The play parks are far better than most places the boys loved them and had great fun. We visited all the local towns and ventured further afield to Aberdeen for a bit of shopping.
All in all can't praise The Stables enough and has got to be the best place we have stayed in to date and would return tomorrow if we could.
