• About Old Montrose - Gardener’s Cottage

    Nature enthusiasts will love exploring Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, which is adjacent to this lovely upside-down property.

    Situated in the grounds of Old Montrose House, the owners’ home, next to the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, are these four holiday properties offering high quality accommodation close to each other, yet totally separate.

    The Stables (ref UK11108) is a luxurious, detached conversion on two levels with a high spec finish and chic furnishings. Beautifully renovated and lovingly restored, it combines traditional cottage ambience with contemporary style, and features a walk-around gallery in the centre of the building above the living room. The Old Gasworks Building (ref UKC2272) is a delightful detached cottage, which has been built on a historic site, and provides a very stylish and comfortable holiday home. Gardener’s Cottage (ref UKC3040) is a gorgeous, upside-down, detached cottage which was formerly the head gardener’s house in times past. Furnished with style and flair, this quirky cottage is wonderfully situated in a secluded spot in the grounds, with a private sunny garden and patio off the main bedroom where you can soak up the sun in peace. Grieve’s Cottage (ref UK11107) is a little gem – a tastefully furnished and spacious, one bedroomed cottage with an open plan living space on the ground floor and a spacious bedroom with sumptuous bed and en-suite shower room on the first floor.

    All guests have access to the owners’ large enclosed walled garden, hard tennis court and small putting green. The idyllic peaceful surroundings are complemented by a structured walled garden and other features, including a rose garden intersected by pathways to meander through and stop to enjoy the scents of summer.

    Just a short drive from the centre of Montrose, this is an ideal base from which to explore an area that is rich in culture, wildlife and heritage. Montrose sits on a peninsula between the South and North Esk rivers. The magnificent sandy beach, golf courses and links area are very popular with tourists, as well as additional leisure facilities including tennis courts, bowling greens and parks. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy the adjacent Montrose Basin and Wildlife Centre, where thousands of pink footed geese, ospreys and eider ducks can be seen. Inland there are miles of walking trails ideal for families or serious hikers. The Angus Glens offer stunning scenery and access to some of Scotland’s most striking munros. There are plenty of good cycle routes around the cottage and throughout the area, and for golfers there are over 30 courses within an hour’s drive, including the championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews. Excellent beaches including Lunan Bay, Arbroath and St Cyrus are nearby and are ideal for surfing or enjoying a barbecue. Fishing can also be found within easy reach. Beach 3½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.

    The Stables (ref UK11108), The Old Gasworks Building (ref UKC2272), Gardener’s Cottage (ref UKC3040) and Grieve’s Cottage (ref UK11107) can be booked together to accommodate up to 18 guests.

    Gardener's Cottage is a stylish and comfortable property which is well above the standard one might expect of the average holiday home. It is a really well equipped home from home, situated on a quiet estate, which nevertheless has some great leisure facilities. The owner lives in the adjacent country house and provides a most friendly welcome. The walks in the immediate vicinity are great and for anyone looking to enjoy a country holiday in close touch with nature and the nearby sea coast it is an ideal choice. Thoroughly recommended!

    We were made to feel very welcome in this sympathetically restored building, surrounded by unusually high quality furnishings! Being able to exercise our dogs in the extensive gardens each morning and evening was a real bonus. Not an area of Scotland we are very familiar with, but this provided an ideal base for exploring the region. Definitely a well above average holiday cottage with a fascinating history!

    We’ve stayed in many lovely cottages over the years but this one is well above and beyond. More like a luxury home from a design magazine than a rental. Nothing in the home you’d ever want is missing and the location is idyllic. The hosts and their lovely dog Merlin couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful.

    A real nice place in a wonderful area and well maintained. The fruit garden was great as the other shared areas. Richard is very kind host, thanks a lot for the time at the cottage.

    Beautiful cottage. Very welcoming and approachable host. The walled garden is superb. TV package is unmatched anywhere else we have been. Everything brilliant. real quality throughout the cottage and top appliances.Only possible suggestion would be for a parasol for table in garden

    we had a great time here,but would like to make two comments. 1, the settee needs to be looked at, as the seats were worn and it felt like you were sitting on the floor. 2, the shower could do with a small shelf to put you shower gels and shampoos on. other than that the place was beautiful and a joy to be there, also the owner was a real gent and his wife charming. we would book again without hesitation. many thanks.
