#1 of 2 Speciality lodging in Evie
Woodwick Mill has been renovated to provide superior self-catering accommodation in a beautiful burnside setting. The environment is quiet and serene with ducks, trout, grey wagtails and the relaxing sound of Woodwick Burn babbling over the flagstone bedrock. The accommodation is finished to an excellent and well-equipped standard. The eco-friendly building is highly insulated and warmed by an hydro-electric tubine and heat pump with solar panels providing hot water. Each apartment has a Spa Bath, separate shower, fridge, freezer, cooker, microwave and Jamie Oliver tableware. There are superb views over the surrounding countryside and neighbouring islands. All double beds are King sized. With ample parking the Mill is 20 minutes drive from each of the two main towns, Kirkwall and Stromness. The self-catering accommodation is suitable for gatherings with each group or family having a separate apartment. The mill dam has been repaired and a fish ladder added.

We stayed in Sheafy at Woodwick Mill in Orkney and found the accommodation to be quaint yet modern and remote but close enough to Kirkwall for amenities. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants good quality accommodation in a rural setting.

You’ll be hard pushed to find better self-catering accommodation on Orkney. Really well equipped kitchen, bathroom with spa bath, three bedrooms, a shower room, and plenty for of parking. It was a great place to return to after a day out exploring. The two lazy-boy reclining chairs are a great addition. If I were to add one thing it’d be a shower over the bath; with four adults staying in the accommodation we could have got ready in the morning faster with two showers.

This was our second stay at The Kiln at Woodwick Mill and we could not have been happier. Micky and Elizabeth are absolutely delightful - incredibly easy to deal with and so willing to help with any recomnendatios or questions about the Orkneys. The Kiln is immaculate with every attention to detail and function. The design layout is really wonderful and even if at some point we had had truly bad weather, we wouldn’t have been unhappy to take a day of down time and stay home! The views from the living/kitchen area are superb - water views on one side and endless green fields and hills with very entertaining sheep on the other. The walls of glass windows on both ends of the living area really bring the outside in and it’s very special. The beds and pillows are so comfortable and the bathrooms both have great showers with excellent water pressure (one bath also has a huge tub.) With very thick walls, this superbly renovated old Mill is also very, very quiet. We will definitely be returning for a third stay!

We have just had a few days in the Kiln and I have to say it was very nice, very clean and comfortable. The location is good for exploring most of the mainland and also in a quiet location, so we were not disturbed. The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay.

Comfortable and very well equipped accommodation, in a quiet location. All the main sites easily accessed, and good range of tourist info available to research and plan days out. Have had a good week, despite the changeable weather! Only suggestion would be blackout blinds for a better sleep at this time of year!!
