Holiday Rental House
Ocean View is a newly renovated self catering cottage in Orkney. From April 2013, visitors to Orkney will be able to rent this beautiful and modern cottage, located in Birsay and can truly get away from it all! Birsay is located at the North West tip of the island, and is just ten miles from Orkney's most famous attractions and twenty miles from Orkney's main towns, Stromness and Kirkwall. Shops, restaurants and bars are nearby but, as the name suggests, Ocean View is a quiet and relaxing place - with a stunning view northwards over the Atlantic.

Birsay is located at the North West tip of the island, and is just ten miles from Orkney's most famous attractions and twenty miles from Orkney's main towns, Stromness and Kirkwall. Shops, restaurants and bars are nearby but, as the name suggests, Ocean View is a quiet and relaxing place - with a stunning view northwards over the Atlantic. We've renovated Ocean View and have tastefuly decorated the house. Though the exterior resembles a traditional Orkney cottage, the interior is modern. The house sleeps four in two bedrooms - one double room and one twin room with two single beds. Ocean View has a huge kitchen / diner and a lovely sitting room to relax in after a busy day's sightseeing! As well as being a modern and relaxing place to stay, Ocean View has also been built to be virtually 100% energy efficient and is an especially great place to stay if you care about the environment. The cottage has it's very own windmill to generate electricity. When you arrive at Ocean View you'll find a vegetable patch full of fresh vegetables (depending on seasonal availability) - and we encourage you to help yourself! If you have a four-legged friend, there's no need to leave them at home as Ocean View self catering cottage is pet friendly! Up to 2 Dogs are allowed free of charge, however larger furry families are still very welcome at Ocean View, but a small fee of £20 per additional dog is charged to cover extra cleaning costs. You won't be the only visitors to Ocean View though - we have two visitors every day - two hen harriers fly above the fields around the house almost daily at lunchtime! As well as being the ideal base for an Orkney Holiday, Ocean View is also a great place to be at night. There's wireless broadband available and a TV with free satellite. As the cottage is in the countryside, you can enjoy beautiful dark skies - staying in Ocean View would be a dream come true for star-gazers! If you're really lucky, you may even get a great view of the Northern Lights away from any light polution. Finally, outside Ocean View, there's plenty of parking available and a big shed for storing any outdoor equipment you take with you. We look forward to welcoming you to Ocean View and we are sure staying here will add to your amazing Orkney Holiday experience!More

Interaction with guests
We prefer to give our guests privacy to enjoy our cottage all to themselves so won't be on hand for key collection. However if you need any information or help at all, we are only a phone-call away and would always try to be at premise to resolve any issues that arise as soon as we possibly can be.

Ocean View was spacious, clean, comfortable and you really can see the ocean! The kitchen was well equipped and we did eat in every night rather than drive to a hotel. The thing we appreciated the most was being able to take our two spaniels...More
