"Wonderful Stay at The Weavers"

The Weavers was such a wonderful surprise, a charming cottage over 3 floors. On arrival in a quiet back street, The weavers shows a wonderful frontage with a well kept raised terrace area, although a lack of parking is apparent, it isn't much of an issue as there is parking just at the end of the street. On entering the property, with Jim the owner a guided tour, very comprehensive with information about everything in the property was given. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for your stay, the kitchen and utility room are well thought out, the living room is comfortable and spacious and the 2 bedrooms are very comfortable with loads of space for storing luggage. The cottage is a stones throw away from loads of local amenities, Forfar Loch is only a 5 minute walk away and provides some wonderful views. A drive up to Breamar is well worth a go as is the drive over to Arbroath which has a great kids play area. There is plenty of information in the house about local attractions, restaurants and takeaways (if you want fish and chips, use the north street chip shop it is the best by far) Overall, this is a wonderful charming character property that is well finished and well thought out and is brilliant for families. I would certainly return to The Weavers if I found myself heading to Scotland in the future I would however get a Wi-Fi dongle for internet access

"Charming, well appointed house full of character in quiet location."

This rental was booked for me by my employers when I had to work in Forfar for a few days. I was so sorry I was not on holiday when I saw the accomodation. The owners have really put a lot of thought into catering for every need. Sharon, the owner,opened the house up for me and waited to show me around even though I was late in arriving. A log fire was burning in the hearth and added to the charm of the livingroom although the central heating system was up to the minute and kept me cosy during my stay. The accomodation is arranged over three floors, with every modern convenience yet still managing to retain the charm of a period house. The bedroom was cosy and the bed comfortable with spotlessly clean cotten bed linen. The kitchen had everything a family could want for self catering, including condiments and non perishable foodstuffs. The roll top bath and shower were great and the bathroom spotless. The cobblestone Street outside gave one the feeling of olde-world privavcy, yet the main street with shops and all amenities were just a minute's walk away. I brought colleagues to the house at lunch time so we could discuss our work in privacy and comfort. All in all, the accomodation made what could have been a stressful work occasion into a comfortable and enjoyable week. If I were to return I could not think of anywhere better to stay in the area.

"Fantastic house, fantastic owners !!"

This property is fabulous and fully equipped and warm. The whole house is immaculately kept and presented. When we arrived we were given a tour of the property by the owner, and shown how to work the heating, dishwasher, and coal fire. We were given fresh milk, bread, butter, tea and coffee, and some logs for the fire on arrival. The house has everything you could possibly need for your holiday, and more!. The whole place is luxury, especially the king size bed, and all the beds are made up ready for your stay. There were plenty of spare towels, and bedding if we needed it. We have already booked our next stay here.

"The place to stay in Angus"

owner was most helpful on our arrival, the property was in first class shape,and the location couldn't have been better, if you require a base to play golf,go walking,visit other places in Angus,look no futher, the local people who pass along the PEND,and the local shops and pubs help make for a great experience.
