    The Old Gasworks Building sleeping up to 6 guests

    Situated in 10-acre grounds complete with tennis court, this wonderful property has enough space for the whole family.
    Situated in the grounds of Old Montrose House, the owners’ home, next to the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, are these two holiday properties. Near to each other but totally separate, S84595 (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 gardeners 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. All guests have access to the owners’ large enclosed walled garden, hard court 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 which is rich in culture, wildlife and heritage. Montrose sits on a peninsula between the rivers South and North Esk. 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 4 miles. Shop 3¾ miles, pub 3 miles and restaurant 2 miles.
    S84595 (ref UKC2272) and Gardener’s Cottage (ref UKC3040) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Margaret – 25 Nov 2018
    "A most enjoyable and relaxing experience. Richard, the owner and his family make you most welcome from the minute you arrive and throughout your stay. A lovely and most appreciated welcome pack awaited us together with a visit soon after from Richard who makes you feel at home and briefs you on the property and what the area has to offer. The cottage itself is about a year old and beautifully furnished and kitted out to a very high spec. A full Sky tv package was included and most welcome. A great place to relax, and a place to which we most unquestionably intend to return."
    Sheona – 4 Nov 2018
    "id have given it full marks across the board except the dishwasher was faulty and there was building works at the adjacent building. Only a very small blip in an otherwise fabulous stay. id definitely stay again."
    Kerry – 25 Oct 2018
    "Had a lovely time in this property and surrounding area. Would highly recommend all of it especially the grounds of the property which we spent a lot of time in."
    James – 19 Oct 2018
    "This is a beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings, it is fitted out to a very high standard indeed and is absolutely spotless inside. A big " Thank you " to Richard the owner."
    pamela – 17 Sep 2018
    "Excellent property with lovely owner and stunning grounds"
    Beverley – 11 Sep 2018
    "We have just returned from a very relaxing holiday staying at S84595. The cottage offers fabulous pet friendly accommodation with the most amazing gardens. We would most certainly recommend. Hope to return in 2019."
    Ian – 27 Jul 2018
    "Fantastic holiday in a great location. No hesitation in recommending and returning."
    William – 11 Jun 2018
    "As I wrote in the 'Comments' book in the house, I fully agreed with all that my friends wrote, which was very positive. My one suggestion was to have grab-rails in the showers, which I (and other older guests) would have found very helpful. I had just been discharged after an unexpected hospital stay, and could only join them for the second week , but the grab-rails would have been very useful anyway."
    Pauline – 29 May 2018
    "This was our 2nd stay at The Old Gasworks and it did not disappoint, love it Richard & Elaine are great hosts, love the area very dog friendly lots of parks and beaches and this time the weather was great sunny the whole week, would highly recommend."
    Stephen – 8 May 2018
    "Amazing cottage! Beautifully decorated and supremely well equipped - we cannot think of any thing that could have been included. The owner, Richard, was very welcoming and full of great suggestions for the area. The gardens were lovely to wander round and there was a tennis court and putting green ( with putters and balls provided ). Highly recommended."
    Mary – 27 Apr 2018
    "One of the best holidays we've had - and there have been many. Lovely area, lovely cosy cottage and oodles of outside space..Friendly welcome and friendly, informative host. Doggie loved it too. Would certainly go back."
    Caitlin – 24 Mar 2018
    "Beautiful cottage - a lot of thought has clearly been put into the design and furnishing of it by the owners. Spotlessly clean despite being a last minute booking. Great location - very peaceful, and use of the tennis court/putting green/gardens/football area would be great if you have kids. Received a very warm welcome from the owner, and everything you could need was there (and the extras - bread/milk/etc were much appreciated). Would definitely recommend - we will be back if we’re in the area again!"
    Elizabeth – 3 Mar 2018
    "The Old Gas Works is a first class property, tastefully decorated to a very high standard. The beautiful garden and grounds are an added bonus which makes for a very relaxing setting. Richard the owner was extremely helpful and welcomed us on arrival. The 'Welcome Pack' was an unexpected treat as were the fresh flowers dotted around the house. All in all a five star property in a beautiful location."
    Clare – 17 Feb 2018
    "Our family of four enjoyed our two night stay very much. The cottage is very comfortable, warm and has everything you need for a wonderful stay. The area is very nice with lots of walks, fantastic beaches and wildlife.We would love to come back and stay in the Old Gasworks again when the gardens are in full bloom."
    Mo – 17 Feb 2018
    "A lovely cottage in a beautiful location.I have already recommended it to a few people, not too many, as want to find a week for myself now and again!"
