This was our first holiday in the Angus area and we really liked it because places to visit were within easy reach.. The cottage is very attractive and cosy and it was in lovely, peaceful surroundings. We hope to go back again because there are still plenty more places to see.

Our stay in The Piggery was great! The location, a quiet village a few miles out of Arbroath, was perfect. Lots of history to explore by bike and the cities of Dundee and Aberdeen are nearby too. Our hosts shared their knowledge of the area, especially useful for our family history research and finding the local footpaths to walk. The Piggery itself was amazing, like a tardis it was much roomier than expected, so cosy and well appointed too. I loved being in bed and looking out at the night sky with thousands of stars twinkling way. A perfect holiday.

We received a very warm welcome from Marian, every thing was first class from the setting to the furnishings.. We could not have asked for any thing better. The peace and quiet and the wild life were very restful. All in all a great holiday.

''The Piggery'' is a lovely, cosy, peaceful and very well equipped cottage.. It was a great base for us to discover Scotland: Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven, Pitmuies Gardens, Cairngorms National Park and so much more. We have had a fabulous holiday at ''The Piggery''. Will definitely book it again.

The Piggery Bellevue is located in the quiet village of Leysmill near Arbroath (5.. 6 miles). The cottage is set in the grounds of the larger house owned by the proprietors Chris & Marian Pyke and Marian made us very welcome upon arrival and was always available should you need anything, other than that you're left in peace to do your own thing. The cottage is furnished to very high standards and wants for nothing, it has gas & electric for cooking, wi-fi, freeview TV and provides heating via wood burning stove and/or oil filled radiators if you don't fancy using the wood burning stove. Bedding, linen and towels are all provided in the cost so no need to bring your own. We opted to use the oil filled radiators and the cottage was very warm and cosy throughout our stay. The cottage is ideally situated for those wishing a quiet & relaxing break away from the hustle & bustle of normal life and is a fantastic base for those wishing to tour the surrounding areas and beyond. With access to some truly superb beaches i.e. Lunan Bay, St. Cyrus' and fabulous walking through the numerous wildlife reserves and glens it's truly a walkers paradise. Visits to Arbroath, Carnoustie, Stonehaven and Montrose give plenty of opportunities to look into local history although, if you're booking late in the season many local attractions may be closed or have limited opening times. Still more than enough to make your stay interesting though as some are open all year round. Recommend a visit to Arbroath Abbey and Bell Rock Signal Tower Museum but it's the glorious beaches that are the real winners, mile upon mile of beautiful, clean beaches with nary a soul in sight to disturb your thoughts as you wander along, taking in the views. The Piggery Bellevue is recommended without hesitation and I for one would definitely go back in the future.
