“We fell in love with Shetland at Brekka Lodge”

Brekka Lodge is perfectly placed for touring Shetland. It is close enough to Lerwick not to feel too isolated (a short 9 miles) but far enough away to be a lovely rural retreat. The tiny hamlet of Fladdabister is a charming mix of ruined croft houses and derelict lime kilns harking back to the harsh days of crofting and fishing and comfortable modern houses, some in the lovely wooden Scandinavian style so typical of Shetland. Brekka Lodge is one of the latter, well appointed well equipped and furnished, immaculately well looked after and as warm as toast on cool evenings. We loved it; the kitchen has everything required with a much appreciated welcome pack (milk, bread, butter, tea, coffee, sugar and a sweet treat). The living room is comfortably furnished with TV and DVDs although we didn't ever have time to turn them on (there is just so much to do in Shetland). We did however make good use of the local guide books and brochures provided. The bedrooms are spacious with a comfortable king size double and an large room with twin beds (we think this sleeps more than 2 but we didn't use this room). The bathroom is large and modern with a corner bath and good shower. There is also a small utility with a washing machine downstairs and ample parking outside. The garden is large (shared with the owners' house next door) with lots of birds visiting, picture postcard views and a lovely walk down through wild flower meadows to a little rocky bay that has a lovely private feel to it; we just loved sitting on the rocks watching the seals, gannets, terns and passing boats in the evening (we were very lucky with the weather) although we didn't catch sight of the elusive otter. Sheila, the owner, is friendly and helpful and rightly takes great pride in this lovely property. We highly recommend Brekka Lodge - we just wished we had booked it for longer as we hardly scratched the surface of these wonderful islands. We'll certainly be back - thank you Sheila and George for welcoming us; our love affair with Sheltand has only just begun!

“Brilliant accomodation and perfect location to explore all Shetland has to offer”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We could not fault Brekka lodge, it was immaculately presented and was equipped with everything we could have needed and more. The location of the lodge is an ideal base for getting around the whole of Shetland. The highlight of our stay was our evening walks down to the beach below the lodge to watch the otters and seals.

“A perfect place to unwind”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was our third visit to Shetland and we were not disappointed. Brekka Lodge was immaculately presented, very well equipped and the beds were really comfortable. We found the sea views from the sitting room mesmerising whatever the weather and the peace and quiet was wonderful.
Shetland is a fascinating place full of history, wonderful scenery and of course the wildlife abounds. Brekka Lodge is ideally situated for exploring the islands and very much gives the feeling of being "away from it all" without being isolated.
Thank you Sheila for making us feel so welcome.

We loved having you stay Brekka Lodge, such a genuine and lovely couple. The lambing is going exceptionally well, despite the evening rainfall. Mostly twins and 6 sets of triplets.
