Michael – 3 Nov 2018
"10/10 No need to say anymore........1st class"
Brendan – 29 Sep 2018
"This is a superb holiday home with plenty space for up to six people staying. It is by far the quietest holiday home I have ever stayed in - with superb views across open countryside on all four sides.The pictures do not do justice - it is spotless with furniture of great quality - kitchen is modern in both units and appliances, suede leather three seater, two seater and single seater - all lazy boy style, bedrooms are big - two doubles and one twin - doubles upstairs with shared toilet/shower room.Within striking distance of walks in the Angus glens, trip down to Dundee - check out the V&A museum just opened, or even a bit further to enjoy St Andrews.Staying here was a joy - on the working Lour farm - peaceful, quiet, well-presented and spacious - highly recommended."
Derek – 8 Sep 2018
"Fabulous time. Very relaxing which is exactly what we were after."
james – 25 Aug 2018
"We all had a great holiday , we would definitely recommend staying at meadow green farmhouse."
Karen – 21 Jul 2018
"We have just returned from a fantastic week at S22951. The farmhouse was more than we expected from looking at the photos. Everything we could have wanted was provided in the kitchen. The welcome pack was amazing and very much appreciated. Thank you. We hope to return again."
Elaine – 30 Jun 2018
"Really enjoyed our stay. Only comment I would make is that a photocopy of the recycling instructions would be really useful next to the kitchen bin!"
William – 23 Jun 2018
"We really enjoyed our stay at S22951 as it was fully equipped and all the rooms and facilities were first class. We have stayed at several cottages and we rate Meadowgreen the best we have been to. The location suited me but my wife would rather be closer to the shops when we are on holiday."
May – 16 Jun 2018
"Had a delightful week at S22951, the cottage was spotless and beautifully appointed. The welcome pack was delicious, the fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The only downside was that even with the proper postcode it was a little tricky to find at first but soon found a shortcut in to Forfar. Forfar itself is a lovely little town with lots of good places to eat, drink and shop. The cottage is located in a very secluded rural setting which was a real joy."
Thomas – 26 May 2018
"We had a wonderful relaxing week at S22951."
DEREK – 17 Mar 2018
"Fantastic cottage to high standard! Short 10 min drive from Forfar. Loads to do in local area. Peaceful setting with great walks on your doorstep. Definetly stay again!"
Shirley – 13 Jan 2018
"This cottage is incredible . The owners have equipped it with everything you could possibly need and more. Its spacious and very comfortable. We loved the all round views and saw deer from the windows. Its not too far for local shopping and great beaches. We would definitely stay again."
Maureen – 9 Dec 2017
"The welcome was second to none, everything you could possibly wish for . After travelling such a long way its a treat to find everything for making a cuppa, home made scones and jam, butter, cakes, and more cakes so delicious. Jar of sweeties, fresh flowers just wonderful. Poinsettia plant completes the picture. We couldn't believe the thought that had gone into it all as nothing was missed, this included an apron, tea cosy, rolling pin all the little things that you may need in case you get snowed in.We appreciated the electric blankets , hand wash towels galore just everything."
Sean – 28 Oct 2017
"A magnificent farmhouse surrounded by open fields where one can spot dear, pheasant, birds of prey and even red squirrel in the trees at the top of the drive. The welcome pack is very generous and you will not want to leave. We will be back!"
Bryan – 21 Oct 2017
"Third visit - absolutely fab house in idyllic setting"
Stephen – 7 Oct 2017
"This was our 2nd stay at meadowgreen . We use cottages about 2 or 3 times a year , And this is by far the best place we visit . Superb cottage terrific amenities and super clean. Solid oak beds lovely furniture and the trump card a log burner too boot . We are already booked for 2018 to go back to this magic cottage ."
Denise – 30 Sep 2017
"Upon arrival the cottage looked beautiful, stepped inside & wow, so inviting, spacious & spotless everything one could want. Had a fantastic week in this isolated, tranquil location. Enjoyed every minute & did not want to leave the peace & quiet. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back in the future."
Janet – 23 Sep 2017
"Fabulous holiday cottage have stayed several times. The only disappointment was the wifi think it needs updating as did not work most of the time."
Marian – 24 Jun 2017
"S22951 is a really well equipped cottage set in perfect tranquillity - there is no sound except birdsong when you are sat outside enjoying a drink. The quality of the décor and fittings is high - beautiful solid wood floors etc. We found it a good centre for exploring the local area - handy for the coastal towns as well as Dundee and the Angus glens. We would thoroughly recommend the cottage for a family holiday."

"Meadowgreen is a lovely holiday home and excellent value for money."
Hugh – 3 Jun 2017
"A beautifully equipped cottage with ample space for us all. My overall impression was of a totally relaxing stress free holiday with the option of things to do and see if you wished."
Margaret – 27 May 2017
"We visit Angus every year as my husband was born in this area & still has family. We didn't want to leave. The peace & tranquility was amazing. We love wildlife & here it was in abundance. Perfect holiday."
Cheryl – 20 May 2017
"An absolutely gorgeous holiday cottage, everything about it is lovely the surroundings are beautiful and the cottage is so well equipped with everything you would need. Welcome pack was fab we can't wait to come back."
Madeleine – 6 May 2017
"It was the best week away we have had in a long time. The views were fantastic. Cannot wait to go again."
Nigel – 8 Apr 2017
"Brilliant cottage and location we relaxed so much. Only thing I would like is to be able to take a well trained pet."
Susan – 1 Apr 2017
"The property and location were excellent. Cottage to a very high standard. Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting peace and quite as well as first class accomodation."
"This is a wonderful holiday home with everything you need. The attention to detail and lovely welcome pack makes you feel as if you are at home straight away. The superb views from every window and the deer making their way across the field in the morning add to the charm of this lovely property in a superb location."
"Lovely holiday cottage. Our third stay there visiting local family. We will return year after year! Only minor complaints this time - the wood for the fire didn't burn well and the toaster didn't work too well. But minor issues considering how wonderful and comfortable the cottage is."
"Fantastic value for money"
"Warm comfortable spacious, clean, has everything you need. Wonderful welcome pack."
"We love S22951. This was our 3rd holiday here and we will be back again soon. Great house, fabulous private location with great views. Lovely welcome pack on arrival was tasty and very much appreciated. Great holiday."
"Meadowgreen is a fabulous property you could not wish for anything else, peace, tranquility everything you need!"
"Had a great stay the welcoming pack is amazing would highly recommend this cottage and would stay again"
"This is our 3rd visit, and the cottage still has the wow factor we felt in the 1st visit. It is simply stunning and we will definitely be staying again next year. We visited plenty of places from here, Edinburgh, Stirling Castle, the kelpies and Falkirk Wheel, Pitlochry, Aberdeen and Stonehaven. Dundee, and a lovely beach at Broughty Ferry, as well as St Andrews, and plenty of other places. And the best part was returning to the warm, quiet, welcoming cottage."
"Lovely cottage, we stay every August for 3 weeks. I think they should provide a cleaner to come once a week when you have a long stay - we organised one ourselves and paid for them ourselves for the 3 weeks, but it should be included in the rental as they would have to clean it anyway as most people only stay a week.Black out blinds in all the bedrooms would be good (the one downstairs doesn't have any)."
"excellent property and beautiful location."
Confirmed guest
"Lovely cottage with everything you could ever need real home from home."
"Very comfortable Cottage with high class kitchen Equipment and luxory bathrooms. If we visit this part of Scotland again we will book this Cottage again if possible."
"Fabulous cottage in a lovely remote location. The kitchen was so well equipped there was everything you could possibly need. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and it was so clean and well presented, we had to get in touch with the caretaker after experiencing problems with our car and they were so helpful and kind. We will be back, it's the best cottage we have ever stayed in."
"Great cottage , Spacious ,spotless clean,one of the best cottage I stay in Flowers and welcome pack !!!!!!"
"This was our 5th stay at Meadowgreen & we are already planning our return. Quite simply this is the nicest place we've stayed at. It is a lovely property, meticulously kept, in a lovely rural location. It also easy to visit bigger cities by car or train."
"Really beautiful house had everything in it for a great stay . One of the best houses we have stayed at would recommend it to anyone."
"2nd stay and yet again, as it was 2 years ago, a dream to visit. We, as you can see by the many other reviews, can't fault it. Quiet, spotless, very well appointed, just about exactly what my wife and I would love to retire to if we ever had the chance and funds! Already booked again for later in the year. A haven to truly relax at."
"Fantastic cottage to relax and unwind in. Perfect for a base to explore further afield and lovely, warm and cosy to come back to of a night. Has everything in it you would need including a lovely welcome pack of baked cakes and scones.Cannot recommend highly enough we have been twice and will definitely be back."
"stunning property situated on vast remote farm land, with nothing but beautiful countryside surrounding you. Lovely old looking farm house yet very modern, well equipped, decorated & furnished to very high standards, warm comfortable spacious. Everything you could possibly ever needs is provided even down cots for babies. Kitchen far better equipped with accessories & utensils in fact probably more that you would ever need. Also thought the home baked products & welcome pack was a very nice touchReally can't fault the place at all we loved it.........!!"
"Extremely well-presented Farmhouse in a quiet yet easily accessible location, very well equipped and super-clean. We'll be coming back without a doubt, thank you."
"An absolutely stunning property. Great location. The property was spotlessly clean and was extremely well presented. We needed for nothing. The scones and jam were a real treat."
"We loved our stay at Meadowgreen and have in fact booked again for next year! Cottage was superbly warm and cosy - we didn't even need the fabulous looking log burner. All the little touches and high standard of finish made this the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed at. Very comfortable base and an ideal location to visit - plenty to do even outside of main tourist season. Would highly recommend this cottage."
"Lovely house. Really well equipped and warm with marvellous views. Lots of places to visit nearby. We had a lovely holiday thank you!"
"I was amazed with this property, its gorgeous & everything you need & more is here in this cottage, there wasn't anything not there that I could think of, amazing stay."
"Second visit this year. We will definitely return to this lovely really peaceful cosy property. Well situated to visit lots of what Scotland has to offer."
"Superb in every way, except as other reviewers have said, the downstairs bedroom and one of the upstairs ones to a lesser extent, are affected by the noise of the boiler during the night. The system is one that has to be on 24 hours a day."
"We had a brilliant time at meadowgreen and look forward to returning in the near future!"
"I absolutely loved staying here with my family. The farmhouse is so really well equipped, better that all that I have stayed in before. It is spacious, warm, well decorated and well thought through in regards to your needs. Excellent kitchen equipment, comfy sofas, fresh flowers and even a TV guide. Would highly recommend and I am looking to book again next year!"

"brilliant as usual. we have already rebooked for 3 weeks in aug 2016 and 2 weeks at Christmas 2016. Curtains could have black out blinds for the long summer nights."
"The cottage was very nice and the home baked extras were a great personal touch.The only fault inside the house was the noise made by the heating system, Which was disturbing for those sleeping in the downstairs bedroom."
"Great cottage, nice welcomepacket."
"This was our 4th stay & we're already planning our 5th. This is a fantastic cottage, which is in a lovely remote location, but still provides easy access for sightseeing. The attention to detail in terms of the quality of finish and the provision for visitors is second to none. It's a joy to stay here."
"Really nice cottage the pictures don't do it justice. The views were incredible. All amenities provided. The only negative we had was the twin room had the boiler room next to it which was loud throughout the night."
"Had an amazing time at the farmhouse and would highly recommend it. Hoping we can book again for 2015"
"Very spacious, clean & modern with eco heating underfloor and wood burning stove. Very comfortable reclining sofas and high quality furniture. Excellent attention to detail of this renovated farm house. Very friendly staff who will help,on the end of the phone at the property."
"this is our 2nd visit and already planning the 3rd, we ahve a competition between me and my kids as to who can get to the home baked good first, well laid out and everthing though of"
"Second visit and as previously experienced the property was prepared to the highest standard.The excellent facilities within the property are well documented by other renters.Whilst the property is in a quiet area it offers easy access to most major cities and tourist attractions."
"Excellent accommodation, felt like you were walking into the TARDIS so much space inside.Only one downside there was a bad smell of stale water in the downstairs bathroom after showering in the upstairs shower room!"
"Wonderful holiday, great location with superb views and total quietness - not everybody's choice as one has to travel a bit to get anywhere but just as we wanted.Farmhouse extemely comforatble and well equipped - Anne in the office so helpful - particular touches noticed were the welcome pack of milk, cakes, jam and flowers and efficient removal of the appropriate recycling or waste bins each Friday. Also the insistence that nothing was required of us at our departure - just have breakfast and go! We treated the farmhouse as our own and trust it was left in a tidy condition. We would definitely like to come again and would recommend to others. "
"the best for a very nice holidays. If I could I will give instead of 10, 11...instead of 5 stars, 7 stars."

"We were really overwhelmed at arrival. It is a wonderful house in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed the pheasants around the house and so much more... in short a wonderful place to stay! July 2012. "

"This house is the sort of place you want to give a bad review so you can keep it a secret all for yourself. The house, setting, funiture and fittings are fantastic, the home made scones and other welcome pack items were more than expected and set the tone for the rest of the accommodation. Would absolutely recommend to anyone for a quite, remote, quality home. March 2012."

"The property is spacious, exceptionally appointed and furnished to a very high standard. It is located on its own in a peaceful and quiet location surrounded by fields and with lovely views over the local countryside, yet it is within a short drive of local amenities. I can thoroughly recommend it. Oct 2011."
