Perfect
We have just returned from our second visit to the farmhouse and it was as stunning and as comfortable as it was last year. Ideal location for visiting St Andrews, Arbroath and nearby Dundee. We look forward to visiting again next year.

Fantastic country farmhouse stay
If you are a country person, this is a perfect rental. Beautiful, peaceful, interesting property. You will be as comfortable as at home in this clean, completely furnished house. Within an hour drive of lots of sightseeing, or in our case lots of exciting golf. The owner couldn’t be nicer, quick and easy to communicate with, very considerate and helpful, and fun to speak with.

Just Perfect
We stayed here in September 2021 all four generations of us, We were all taken aback by the location and views but when we entered the house it was just perfect in every way, the owners have thought of absolutely everything to make the perfect stay, it was a very much needed family break and we had an amazing stay. Super location to go visit and explore. We would definitely love to return and i highly recommend booking this superb home.

A great break in a fantastic property
This was our second stay at Carmichael farmhouse and once again it met all our expectations. We had our Grandson and dog who had great fun in the large secure garden and neither would come in as we’re having too much fun. The house is immaculate, well equipped and spacious and located close some great outdoor walks/beaches only a short drive away. This will not be our last visit and would highly recommend.

Such a lovely house
Another super week at The Farmhouse (our third). It is such a lovely house – spacious and very well equipped, and the perfect place for a much-needed break after all the grimness of lockdown and before we get shut in again for the winter. The house was spotlessly clean with some new Covid-proofing procedures in place such as a huge container of hand gel at the front door, so we felt perfectly safe. We had originally booked to stay in June, but the owners kindly allowed us to rearrange for September. It turned out to be the perfect week with lovely weather and just before the regulations started to tighten up again. Some local sites were closed, but we managed to have lunch out several times and to visit the Mary Quant exhibition at the Dundee V&A. We also thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic new decks the owners have installed since we visited last year, which were fully accessible to the disabled member of our group. They catch the afternoon sun even in September and we were able to sit out several days, but they would be perfect in summer for a barbecue or sitting in the evening with a glass of wine watching the sun go down. We just love the place and are already planning our next return.

First Class Farmhouse
Recently stayed over for a family occasion and the pictures don’t actually do the place justice. It is a stunning traditional property which is very homely and yet bathrooms which leave you thinking you were in a modern hotel. The blend of traditional and modern is spot on. Lovely complimentary food and drink snacks left for our arrival and the towels with fudge sweets are truly a welcoming touch. Everything has been thought of and well covered. The property is immaculate in terms of cleanliness and the location leaves you thinking you are in a remote location however just down a few roads is access to all the usual necessities. Cannot recommend enough. Look forward to staying again!!!!

Another super holiday in this lovely house.
Belated thanks to Nicola and her team for another great holiday in this lovely house in May. The house is a real delight, well equipped, scrupulously clean and with lots of space. Our group included a disabled lady who walks with arm crutches and the house is ideal for her with an easy ramp into the house and a lovely big bedroom on the ground floor with flat access to en-suite facilities. There are lots of interesting places to visit in the Dundee area and across the bridge in Fife and we had day trips to Edinburgh and to see the Kelpies in Falkirk. Because another visitor had booked for a short break we were able to stay for eight nights which was a real treat. It was great not to be tied to a Friday to Friday let. It is a great place for a holiday. This was our second holiday in the Farmhouse and I am sure it will not be our last.

Perfect dog friendly place to explore Dundee and surrounding areas
We had a brilliant stay at Charmichael Farm with plenty of room for visiting family to join us and ideal for our two labradors . The house was perfect , lovely rooms with comfy beds, lovely bathrooms and a really nice big kitchen with all the facilities you could hope for . It was spotlessly clean and well equippedand there was plenty of information to help with our stay. We were easily able to explore the area .We had an amazing walk on Tentsmuir beach and a lovely lunch at The View restaurant in Newport on Tay . Dundee is brilliant and so accessible from the farm . We also visited Glen Isla and Glen Clova - beautiful Glens on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park with in an hours drive. Thank you to Nicola for all her help and advice and for providing a five star home from home for our holiday !

Great base for a family getogether
Very well equipped and comfortable farm house. Very nicely decorated. Plenty room for 9 of us there for a family celebration. Within easy reach of Dundee and Perth and a handy shop a short drive away. Great accommodation for our 3 dogs too. Just note however, despite a specific dog room in the house you cannot leave dogs in the property when you go out so be prepared to leave them in the outside run or take them in the car. It’s a place we would definitely recommend and consider going back to although our preference is usually to try somewhere new.

About the neighbourhood
We are very lucky with the location of Carmichael Farmhouse. We are in an central location and the farm has fields in Perthshire, Tayside and Angus. We are in a rural location but have easy access to Dundee, only 2 miles away. Dundee is an exciting place to visit with some fantastic tourist attractions and is undergoing a huge transformation with the opening on the Dundee V&A Museum. There are also many good shops and places to eat. St Andrews (only 20miles way) and Perth (15 miles away) are also within easy reach and are both worth a day trip. If you enjoy golf we have 3 championship courses all within an hours drive - Carnoustie (only 20 miles away), St Andrews (20 miles) and Gleneagles (35 miles).
Getting around
We recommend that you come by car as it is a mile to the nearest bus stop. There are many taxi companies that will come out to the farm though if you are not bringing a car. Dundee Train Station is about 5 miles from the farm and there are always taxis outside the station that could bring you to the farm. Edinburgh airport is about an hours drive from Carmichael Farmhouse and a train from Edinburgh to Dundee Train Station takes about an 1 hour 15minutes.
