“Family getaway”

Our second stay at Kamba cottage and another great holiday. Myself, Wife, Sons 10 & 6 and Father and Step Mother came this time round and we found found it to be a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area from. The beauty of Kamba is that you also have the added bonus of swimming pool, sauna, hot tub, swings, trampoline and plenty of space for kids to ride on their bikes or scooters so you'll struggle to hear the dreaded "I'm borrrred".

The surrounding area is ideal for day trips and you cant beat the stag in Forfar for great food. If you do go great places to visit are
* The Stag (Forfar)
* Glamis Castle
* Dunnottar castle
* Stonehaven
* Johnshaven
* Glen Cova
* Glen Cova Hotel ( climbers bar )
* Luna beach (take a pic nic, windbreaker, change of clothes and your set for day.)

Loads more places worth visiting, too many to mention......

“Fantastic”

Great getaway, quite (our phones had no signal apart from in the car - which was GREAT), very relaxing. Played lots of board games, watched DVD's, read books.
The pool & hot tub were fantastic.
Totally chilled experience, family couldn't be nicer.
Definitely would recommend going if you want a chilled phone free break

We stayed for 7 days in winter time as family of 4 (kids 4 and 7) and enjoyed our stay.place was clean and tidy with heating controls in every room.kids loved sleeping upstairs with own bathroom etc.only used pool once which was nice,sauna nice but jacuzzi never warm enough.best days out were glenshee ski resort (1hr away).edinburgh zoo.castle ok but expensive.olympia swimming centre in dundee (best ive ever been to).plenty to visit in a car.we dined at nearby finavon hotel,drovers inn,dunachen stone and chapel bank in forfar which were all fantastic.make sure car is full with fuel as petrol garages are non existant in hillside.only annoying thing with cottage is heating pipes bang alot when heating on and spiral stairs need looking at as they are very creeky.all in all a great area to stay at though.many thanks owners.

“Lovely well equiped cottage in beautiful grounds”
Reviewed September 4, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

person found this review helpful

The cottage is beautifully decorated and was spotlessly clean. Very well equiped with everything we needed for a break with two girls age 11 and 12 and our pet pug. The garden is completely secure so our dog could wander in and out. The swimming pool, hot tub and sauna in the owners house were open for us to use whenever we wanted and the owners were really friendly.

Not many places to eat out but there is a large tesco in Forfar about 5 miles away so no problem with shoppping. We had lovely days out in Glamis, Kirriemuir (which was a good cycle ride from the cottage), shopping was good in Dundee and lovely deserted sandy beaches in Montrose and Carnoustie both of which have good childrens play areas as well.

The cottage was really warm and cosy so even in winter it would be great. The beds were so comfy and upstairs there is a mezzanine Area which gives some separate private space ideal for teenagers

The best thing according to our girls was the llama and two Shetland ponies in the grounds which they could pet and feed apples to - highly recommended.
