“Another great stay”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Very friendly new Orcadian management, professional and friendly without being overbearing and intrusive.

Stayed in the other cottage this year and was not disappointed, spotless and comfortable.

Cannot recommend enough to visitors to Orkney Islands.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We booked this holiday let for a short break. Its rural and off the beaten track location is part of its charm. Star gazing takes a whole new meaning due to the minimal light pollution.
The layout of the buildings means that should you require, you can keep yourself to yourself.
A well equiped kitchen is perfect for self catering and the cottage is well insulated so evenings can be cosy with little effort.
Furnished to a fairly high standard so it quickly becomes a home from home.
A nice picnic table with bench seats outside makes al fresco dining easy should the weather allow.
A friendly cat, cattle across the track, chucks and ducks all add to the reasons to be reluctant to leave when the time comes.
Would recommend without hesitation

“Peace and quiet”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Fantastic place. Arrived to a warm welcome, a home baked cake,milk butter and cheese in the fridge plus a loaf of bread, a nice touch after a long journey. The cottage was well equipped with everything you need,it was immaculate throughout. Situated in green fields an ideal place to escape from the city. Easy commute to any of the local attractions, truly a place of natural beauty, steeped in history. Plenty to see and do. Thank you Tina and Paul for contributing to a fantastic holiday

We are pleased you found our cottage met your needs and you enjoyed your time in Orkney. The welcome pack is offered to guests who book for 7 nights or more including the home baked cake and the eggs contributed by our own hens. Even though we are located on the East Mainland we find it easy access to all the sites and a welcome retreat at the end of the day in calm surroundings.

“A lovely place to stay!”

person found this review helpful

After a rough crossing from Aberdeen it was a relief to be welcomed at the ferry terminus in Kirkwell by Tina and Paul who kindly turned out after midnight to pick us up. Lovely to find eggs, cheese, milk, bread and a delicious cake on the fridge!
We found the cottage very warm and comfortable. It is a bit isolated - although the village store (about a 15 minutes walk) provided most things we needed and was open on Sunday.
On the Monday we hired a car in Kirkwell and enjoyed the following days exploring this fascinating area..
We would highly recommend this property.

“Tranquil holiday haven”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Perfect holiday cottage! Characterful barn conversion, high standard furnishings, comfortable, cosy and well equipped. Tranquil rural location, stunning views, with dependable wifi.
In my opinion you definitely want a car if you plan to stay at Tiffyhall.
A previous reviewer had mentioned a welcome pack of groceries, so perhaps unreasonably I had expected this ... But we did receive the gift of 6 eggs, fresh laid by Tina's hens. Lovely! And the kitchen was well stocked with condiments and spices.
Bring your slippers! This is a real home from home!

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed our cottage and all it has to offer. With regard to the welcome pack, in the T&C's it does state that this is available to all guests booking for 7 nights or more. Sorry you felt you had missed out on this. We do hope you will come back again

The cottage was very comfortable with 1st class furniture and fittings with amazing views across Pentland firth. I would recommend this cottage.my only negstive comment was that I couldn't find a vegetable peeler.

Our short stay in this lovely cottage was very pleasant. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Wonderfully quiet with extensive views. And the bonus of decent WiFii!
