We have visited this estate and stayed in this cottage many times now but this year it has had a refit and is absolutely brilliant. Newly decorated, new sofa, new boiler and heater, newly fitted cupboards hiding all the appliances such as hoover etc nice big flat screen TV. One of the best things for us is that we are able to take our dog and it has a lovely sized secure garden for dogs and children to play in. We find that there is everything you could possibly need at this cottage with washing machine with drier as well as full oven and hob. I'd happily live there! Unlike a precious post, when we arrived the whole place was immaculate with all bulbs working and the fire on for us. Lovely to have tea, coffee, sugar, milk, jam and biscuits provided. The estate is marvellous for walking and we regularly saw deer and other wildlife. Lunan Bay is close by and is one of the most stunning sandy beaches in the U.K. Arbroath is famous for its fish and there are a great many good restaurants to try. All in all a great cottage in a perfect setting.
This review is a mix of pros and cons.
My initial reaction on arrival at the Lodge was one of disappointment. The condition of the property is poor with damaged plasterwork, door frames desperate for a coat of paint, light bulbs out and old shaded flooring in the back entrance and bathroom. We shared the bathroom with the vacuum cleaner, floor brush and mop pail!!
The exterior of the property - the grounds, pathways all require weeding and the all around the grass areas have overgrown weeds. The external doors and windows were very dirty my Mum even threatened to go out and wash them!!
We were pleased with the quality of the towels and complimentary items, very comfortable beds and the inclusion of tea, coffee, milk, jam, shortbread and oatcakes was a delightful surprise.
I paid almost three hundred pounds to use the property for three nights and for that price I was expecting a better overall quality and a standard of maintenance which unfortunately I did not received.
