We arrived at this hiddenaway hotel and were welcomed warmly with tea in one of the lounges which had a wonderful view of the garden and the sea. We stayed two nights and loved it. It is not like a normal hotel; it is like going back in time and staying in an English country house with an overgrown garden, furniture which has been in the family for years. It has a perfect setting in a bluebell wood next to the sea and the overgrown fuscia bushes and rampant rhubarb show how the garden would have looked in its prime. The cawing of the rooks wakes you in the morning and the cat walks with you as you stroll down the stream to the sea. Even if it rained, you could browse through the extraordinary mix of books in the library.
We ate well, delicious dinners and excellent breakfasts - scrambled egg particuarly good. This hotel is not Travelodge but it is unique and the owners are genuinely friendly and welcoming. One of the highlights of our trip to the OekneysMore
