A really comfortable cottage and a very warm welcome from the owner. The goodies waiting for us on arrival were much appreciated - especially the scones! After a day exploring it was lovely to get back to a warm cosy cottage where we were able to relax in comfort.

Management response:

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. Thank you for the great review. All the best, Karen&Colin

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.

Management response:

Thank you Sue for a lovely review. Looking forward to seeing you both again next year. Thanks, Karen&Colin

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...

It was lovely having you. We really appreciate your feedback. Hope to see you again.
