A great location for touring the whole island. Kirkwall is just across the bay and about 15 mins drive away and it's very easy to go north up to Birsay or south down past the Italian Chapel to South Ronaldsay. There are 2 or 3 other houses around but the only noise you'll hear are from the cows and sheep in the surrounding fields.
The house itself is excellently resourced and extremely comfortable. There is a large kitchen if you are eating in, a living/dining room and 3 good sized bedrooms. The garden is huge and was perfect for our dog as it is fully fenced in.
Greig was very welcoming and lives just down the road so is nearby if there are any issues.
Highly recommended and we will definitely return one day.
We have stayed in numerous self catering places all over the country and I have to congratulate the owners on having the best one.
From an initial enquiry,to booking ,to paying was very easy.
The accommodation itself was spotlessly clean and very well maintained and was provide with all of the equipment you would need.
Widefirth is set in beautiful countryside ,a large garden with picnic bench was welcome during the good weather we had.Widefirth also has access to a beach,although not sandy it was still beautiful.
The owners themselves were friendly and very helpful ensuring our stay was perfect.
This lovely well equiped and maintained cottage was a real home from home. It is situated close to another holiday cottage but it does not encroach. The owner was extremely helpful, Cottage would be suitable for anyone with mobility problems or fairly independent wheelchair user.
Not too far from Finnstown or Kirkwall.
