Nantusi Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Set in the scattered hamlet of East Murthill and just seven miles from Kirriemuir, this cottage is one of two 17th Century stone-built properties. This cottage has been renovated to a high quality and is located close to the South Esk River providing great views. Guests are invited to use the owner's indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, making this a wonderfully luxurious holiday base. The property is well-situated for skiing at Glenshee, touring Edinburgh or playing golf at St. Andrews. With so much to see in the local area, it will be a tough choice whether to stay in and pamper yourself or go out sightseeing.

Situated in the valley of Strathmore and regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, Kirriemuir is a lovely red sandstone town amidst some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscapes. This stunning settlement was the birthplace of the renowned novelist JM Barrie, best known for his children's character Peter Pan who was the subject of the film 'Finding Neverland'. His house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland and a statue of 'the boy who never grew up' can be found in the town itself. Another literary landmark is close by in the form of Glamis castle, Shakespeare's setting for his unluckiest of plays, Macbeth. Kirriemuir also hosts an Aviation Museum and the historic Pictish Stones at Meigle as well as hill-walking in the Angus Glens.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

We used the cottage as a base for fishing the South Esk River, it was in just the right location. It was well maintained, clean and the facilities were excellent.

Cleanliness! Cleanliness! Cleanliness! Very pleasant property, very spacious and we didn't need to go round cleaning things before we settled down. A good spot to get away from it all!

The family here are super very friendly. Use of the pool and sauna was terrific, really enjoyed this mini break. My girls had such a lovely time and my dog loved the enclosed garden. We will definitely return to this lovely place.

The cottage was extremely well equipped and heated, communication from the owner was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome. The fully enclosed garden allowed our dog to safely take in the fresh air and I would strongly recommend this cottage to others.

The peace and quiet and because the weather was so good we were sitting in the garden enjoying the surroundings for a week, the swimming pool was also excellent.
Mrs Wood

The owner was very friendly and helpful. Her knowledge about the area was great and we loved the places she recommended we go and see. We are all very interested in the environment and wildlife. The property is situated in the perfect place for us to see an amazing amount of wildlife without leaving the grounds! We would most certainly be going back and would recommend the property to friends.

We received a friendly welcome - even though we arrived later than planned. We found everything we needed and it was all easy and convenient to use. The cottage was superb - a great base for a holiday in the Cairngorms. Many thanks.

It was a great break. Lambs were being born on a daily basis - very interesting for the children. We enjoyed the scenery and the pool. There were numerous things to do to keep us occupied. I would not have changed anything as we had a very enjoyable time.

Property potentially very nice but cleanliness unacceptable. Here is the email sent to the agent, the owner did not accept a single point. Are my expectations to high when paying for the privilege to stay in someone's property? As per my telephone conversation with one of your customer service team on Wednesday 3rd October. I phoned to discuss issues with my current stay at Nantusi Cottage that I felt uncomfortable taking up with the owners on site. Being on holiday the last thing I am looking for is conflict which due to the list of complaints potentially could arise. In the telephone call I listed issues that we had experienced since arriving on Saturday 29th September. On arrival we were met by the owners daughter who was very friendly. She advised us that one of the high chairs that we had requested for our ten month old twin boys, had broken straps, and that her father was picking a new chair up. She later dropped this off and asked if I would build it up which at the time left lost for words after paying for the privilege to stay. On trying to assemble I found that a screwdriver was required, this left us with a usable but half built high chair. Cleanliness. On entry to the cottage we noticed balls of dust on the wooden floor (a worry when you have two ten moth old toddlers). We then noticed that the upstairs toilet had faeces marks on the rim of the bowl and both upstairs and downstairs toilets had pubic hair and dust around the rear of where the toilet seats are fixed. The garden had several dog faeces in it. some of which I picked up the others had been there for a while. In the downstairs bathroom the shower screen was only fixed on at the top and was coming away from the wall at the bottom (not safe especially when trying to bath an infant). When cleaning downstairs I moved the rug in the living area to find a build of grit, dirt and hair that had been building up for a considerable amount of time. Then bin in the twin room upstairs had cotton wool pads still in it from the previous tenants. Facilities. In the kitchen the microwave did not work, on the "High" setting, the halogen grill came on instead, potentially very dangerous. The gas hob was very uneven with the hobs varying in output, we struggled to get a pot of pasta to boil. The washer dryer only washed even though when booking we only expected a washing machine. There is also an issues with a drain smell which would build up in the kitchen area overnight or during the day when we were not running water. Due to the issues with cleanliness both my wife and myself were uneasy about using the on site pool one of the reasons for booking. We did not want to expose our children to any infections from bathing in a unregulated pool. The cottage is potentially very nice however the owners have let the property down. I was looking for some form of compensation as I would not expect any issues with cleanliness, the fact that we had to clean the toilets on arrival is unforgivable on the owners behalf. The owner refused to accept any of the issues and was rude in here reply email to Sykes the letting agent which was read out to me over the phone.the letting agent which was read out to me over the phone.

The cottage was lovely with everything we needed. The location was great for us to go to differant places.The weather was fantastic. The only downside was i thought our dog would have more open space to be let out but there was nowhere for her to go. And when she was out the owners dog attacked her apart from that we had a brilliant hol
