We stayed here for 7 nights. The cottage is on West Mainland near the Kitchener Memorial.Also relatively nearby are Brough of Birsay, Skara Brae, Stromness etc. The cottage is light and airy and maintained to a high standard, contemporary design and stylish. The custodian lives a short walk away who gave us a wonderful welcome. On arrival there were some local goodies waiting.The property was clean and well equipped. There is a lovely view of the coast and surrounding farmland (cows and calves when we were there). The aspect from the view window is south east through to west, so plenty of potential sun.
The location of the cottage is out of town in a quiet rural setting, very close to the coast and in the middle of a working farm. The cottage itself is beautiful, very well appointed and spacious. The kitchen, unlike most rentals, contained everything from coffee to every spice imaginable, while the large bedrooms are very comfortable and also well appointed. Sitting in the front windows (shown in the photo) early in the morning is one memory I'll have of Orkney for a very long time. We were sad to leave. Thanks Joan.
What a location. Absolutely stunning location and area. Great views of the beach and bay. Accommodation wise, I've never stayed in an accommodation that has absolutely everything. I mean absolutely everything you need. It's catered for so well. Very comfy. Very well thought out. No complaints at all. None whatsoever.
This is located in a beautiful corner of Orkney, near enough to the beach and coast path to enjoy the outdoors or simply the view in full comfort whatever the weather. We enjoyed the decorative taste of the Swiss owners, everything worked on a practical basis but much of the furniture and all of the art was from local artists, they clearly love their family holidays here a much as we did.
