Didn't want to leave
Just home from a short break in Westwood Cottage. Gillian and Michael were truly lovely hosts who have kitted out the cottage to a very high standard making it a true home from home. Fully enclosed back and front gardens which was handy for the toddlers (and the dog). The cottage is decorated immaculately with all fixtures and fitting to a very high standard but it still feels very welcoming. The pictures of the accommodation online are very accurate, there's definitely no disappointment when you get there. The grounds of the estate are great to walk around and Dundee itself is easy to get to. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage to anyone. Thank you both for a lovely break.

Beautiful cottage In a Fabulous Location
We had a wonderful stay at Westwood Cottage and cannot recommend it highly enough. The cottage has everything for a wonderfully relaxing stay with beautiful decor, log fire, Netflix, Alexa, a lovely courtyard for outdoor dining and all set within the extensive grounds of the Liff Estate. Extremely easy access to Dundee city centre and for transport links to North (Aberdeen, Inverness) and South (Perth, Edinburgh) - a great central location for exploring Scotland. The owners Gillian and Michael are very warm and welcoming and could not be more helpful. We highly recommend and hope for a return visit.

Beautiful place, great hosts!
A beautiful cottage; very spacious; well equipped; lovely decor and so homely. We had a lovely much needed family break, here; the cottage and garden were even lovelier than depicted in the photos. Gillian and Michael are lovely hosts; providing a warm welcome and have thought of just about everything to ensure their guests needs are catered for! Family time around a lovely dining table; outdoors eating and relaxation in the courtyard garden; relaxing with a glass of wine in front of the log burner! My son was very impressed that there was even a goal for him in the large grassy back garden! A central location; short drive to shops and local attractions. Would love to stay here again and would highly recommend.

Fantastic place to stay
We are a family of 5 and this was a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is very spacious and beautifully decorated with lots of outdoor space to sit, eat or play. It is situated in a lovely setting with stunning grounds that are very child friendly. The cottage is kitted our really well and there are lots of nice touches to make it feel very homely. Gillian and Michael were great hosts, there to greet us at the beginning of our stay and thankfully there to help us reunite our daughter with her ‘left behind’ cardigan at the end. We would love to stay here again and can’t recommend it highly enough.

Beautiful
All the photos do not do this cottage justice - it is beautiful. There are lovely touches, such as the welcoming pastries and toiletries as well as an Amazon Echo and Netflix. Feels very homely and we came away with more than a few decorating ideas! Would definitely stay again.

Stunning quiet location
Just minutes outside Dundee, this gem in a private estate in Liff has everything you need, whether it be for a long weekend, a family holiday or a very comfortable stop off en route to the airport for your holiday. This is a great place which is very clean, very spacious very quiet and the grounds are beautiful! The rooms consist of 1 double en suite and two doubles, 1 of which has also a pull out single bed, so comfortably sleeps 6/7 the large kitchen is fully equipped and has a very large family dining table, there is a family bathroom which has an in bath shower, the lounge is spacious and has a log burner with fuel supplied for a really cosy night in, the garden is a private mini courtyard which when we stayed in August was stunning and a sun trap! so enjoyed drinks and food outside on the decking, bbq also supplied. In our opinion you will not find a better spot in or around Dundee, the owners were particularly keen to make sure we were relaxed! Private parking, Wifi and Netflix also included, simply the best!!!

Gorgeous retreat from metropolis
What a great find. This lovely spaceous ground floor apartment suited all our needs and more. Tucked away in a quiet corner, we enjoyed morning coffee in the sunny courtyard and family meals around the long table in the beautifully modernised kitchen. A day trip to Dunkeld in unusually warm weather was a real treat. All our needs anticipated by the owners and friendly support available for any queries. Would love to return.

Stunning Liff Cottage In Beautiful Grounds
Needed somewhere for 5 girls to stay for sporty, energetic weekend in spring. Wanted the beauty & convenience of the countryside for kayaking & biking combined with the closeness of the nightlife & shopping of Dundee. Impressed with the photos & the speed of the owners Gillian & Michael answering our questions informatively. Property in impressive grounds with tennis courts, quiet & well maintained & all rooms spacious, beautifully decorated & plenty of storage & sinks for us girls to do our make-up & hang our glad rags! Had a great time staying there & would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Thanks Gillian & Michael! Can’t wait to go back!

We had a great stay at the cottage (2 families) for our Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything , cottage was beautiful with everything we could possibly need to make our stay enjoyable. Kids had a great time especially Ava with her egg hunt around the house and garden then we made use of the tennis courts , weather was smashing and made our stay even better. Would highly recommend and would also stay again !! Thank you for everything

Stunning Cottage just outside Dundee - A must stay!
My friends and I (2 couples) booked this cottage as we had a wedding at Guardswell Farm. What an incredible place this is! The decor is so stylish and modern. The place is massive and has 3 big bedrooms (1 with an Ensuite). You have everything you need right there from an exceptionally comfy bed to soft towles, games, fresh condiments and pastries...and Netflix all set up for you. I would highly recommend staying here. The owners, Michael and Gillian and always by the phone if you have any questions and didn't complain that we were later arriving to get the keys than we intended. Thanks so much for having us - i'll definitely stay again
