Very well equipped and furnished. Excellent TV and Wi Fi reception. Under floor heating and hot water systems very good. However, the heating system failed on one day and over heated the cottage while we were out. This meant that despite a rapid response by the owner and having to have doors and windows open it was too hot to sleep comfortably thatRead more night. Location is such that there is almost no direct sunlight into the cottage and the proximity of large trees means that it is necessary to day Hide

Peaceful, relaxing and scenic location. Cottage was lovely, fresh flowers in the kitchen, every room immaculate and well equipped, a credit to the owners. The idyllic location means you can wander the castle grounds, through the woodland walks and down to the wonderful walled garden. Numerous walks nearby including the beautiful Angus Coastal Path.Read more Montrose a short drive away for shopping etc. We will definitely return to Yew Cottage. Hide

This is a beautiful cottage with its own lawned garden. It is very spacious for two people and has the added advantage of being only about 100yds from the Castles walled garden which is beautifully laid out with exotic flowers. Also there are woodland walks which our dog loved.

Very comfortable cottage, recently refurbished with a little private garden. Access to the castle grounds was a real bonus. Our dog loved the wood path. Good location on the coast and close to Montrose for supplies, highly recommend this cottage for walking or driving along the Angus coast
