There is a table in the kitchen for a cosy snack but a separate dining area with a bit more room. Please note that this is also the area where the futon is if the cottage is sleeping 5. The cottage is heated by way of gas central heating. The cottage has a large private garden with mature shrubs and trees and also an enclosed section which is ideal for small children and pets to run about in securely. There is an outside seating area and bbq allowing you to make the most of the good weather. There are lovely woodland walks into Kinblethmont estate from the back of the cottage. The walled garden amenity area is about 3/4 mile away. Please be warned though that the garden is very large and though we try to keep it under control when weather permits it is not always easy to do so - we may need to come in and cut the grass during your stay! We welcome up to 2 medium sized dogs in the West Lodge but you must pick up after them and make sure they are under control on Kinblethmont estate. Why not hire our bikes and take in the scenery at a more leisurely pace? More

Fantastic getaway for my wife and I as newlyweds and our two dogs! Great cottage, great location. Perfect for pet owners as Lunan Bay Beach is a 15 minute drive away. Would happily stay here again. Thoroughly enjoyed our time away, dogs included.

About the neighbourhood
Within 10 minutes drive of Kinblethmont there is the historic town of Arbroath with its Abbey, atmospheric harbour, Hospitalfield House and cliff walks. The award winning beach of Lunan bay is very close and there are award winning restaurants in Auchmithie and Inverkeilor. Of course you do not need to leave the estate to have a relaxing time with its woodland walks, walled garden and why not hire one of our bikes for a day or two.
