This is quite an experience its unlike any B&B that we have visited in the last 20 years. My wife and I left feeling rejuvenated after seven days of clifftop walks, adventures in secret woods and food that knocks spots off so called top restaurants.
Three course breakfast’s for someone like me that normally just has coffee sounded like a bit of a challenge but it was addictive to have glorious fresh fruit salads and their luxury porridge followed by a third course from their gourmet breakfasts range every morning. I have no doubt that they make the best breakfasts possible. Whilst writing about food the evening dinners really are fine-dining without the charade of opulent decor that normally accompanies expensive restaurants. It is quite a luxurious experience to have two people working all day to prepare and serve dish after dish of excitement. In fact it is almost embarrassing like feeling that you have personal chefs.
Like other people have written this whole thing is faultless, but it’s not just about nothing being wrong the experience is that you really feel like you don’t want to leave. Somehow the atmosphere with the pretty laughing children and the warm enthusiasm of the owners is just what you would want from visiting your best friends.
During our visit there was another couple from the nearby town Kirkwall who was there for a treat birthday celebration and it was obvious that Kayko and Patrick made incredible efforts to give them a great time. Two things happen that we didn’t expect which was being given an hours session on what we should do in Orkney over coffee when we arrived and secondly learning about the secret woods which we went back to 3 times. We were really pleased about the talk regarding places to go which gave us good insight and helped us appreciate places a lot more.
