Our price, however, is for the exclusive use of the whole house, parking and gated garden. Glenisla House is a traditional 4-bedroom, sandstone, terraced townhouse, situated in a quiet little lane which forms part of the Forfar Heritage Trail, only 500 meters through an historic Vennel to the town centre. This early 19th Century, listed property, accommodates 8 to10 people plus a baby cot. It is ideally suited as a family holiday home, or for small groups who wish to take advantage of the beautiful scenery surrounding the town, the numerous activities available in the area, or as accommodation for joint family celebrations. Accommodation comprises a large open plan, family/dining/kitchen with dining seating for 10, couch, wall units and upright piano, and fully equipped kitchen area with wall and base units; double family bedroom suite which consists of a triple bedroom (with cot) with a double and single bed and a separate small single room with an adult size single bed; a well proportioned hallway with a newly fitted WC with Wash Hand Basin, (which means there are now toilet facilities on all 3 levels) , and traditional curved stairway with ornamental balustrade and stained glass window; a balcony landing with ornamental balustrade leading to a further 2 double bedrooms (one with king size traditional style bedroom suite), and another with twin beds and a large lounge with seating for 10, with hand carved oak fireplace, and electric feature fire, and ornamental corniced ceiling; and newly fitted bathroom with pedestal wash hand basin, WC, and over bath power shower (bath seat provided). The basement area has been opened out to incorporate a games room with 2 double Japanese futons, additional seating, and 4-piece family bathroom. Outside space provides a fully enclosed, and gated, garden across the lane, neatly laid to paved areas and mature shrubs, with barbeque area. The chipped driveway provides parking for 2 cars (3 with practise), and additional public parking within 100 metres. We do have a bike shed, which can be made available, on request, providing storage for bikes, fishing, or climbing gear. A Garden Room with Hot Tub is available on request for an additional charge. All proceeds from the Tub Room will be allocated to building a School in Uganda. A substantial welcome pack will be provided on arrival and linen is included. (Towels can be provided for a small extra charge.) Well behaved pets will be welcome at the discretion of the owner at no extra charge. (A small pet bond may be required against any damage, refundable on exit if all has been well). We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to what is our other home x More

About the neighbourhood
The market town of Forfar is the administrative centre of Angus, providing a bustling and friendly hub from which to explore the area. With its variety of restaurants, shops, museum, and bordering on the beautiful Forfar Loch, this friendly town provides a welcome place to return to after a day of exploration, or somewhere to relax in its friendly atmosphere. There is a sailing club on Forfar Loch, and this nature reserve is enjoyed by walkers and runners. Forfar Rugby Club and Football Ground provide Saturday entertainment, and there is also the ice rink which provides curling, and skating, and is a venue for younger members of the family to have fun. Or try your hand at Bowling at one of the several local clubs. The Reid Park is a short
Getting around
Exploring the town is best on foot, with coffee shops, restaurants, and shops all within a close walking distance. The Angus Glens and coast are easily reached by car, but the local bus services are comprehensive and frequent.
