The Byre is close to The Beach, The sea, Green Fields, Shops, Pub, Harbour, wildlife, restaurants and dining. You’ll love my place because of Lovely building, setting close to the beach, the ambiance, the outdoors space, the light, the fresh air, the peace and quiet. DOGS WELCOME.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).

The space

THE BYRE is a traditional natural stone building formerly used to house the cows when Quoyeden was a farm many years ago.
It is separate from THE CROFT (not attached).
The living / dining / kitchen area is open plan, giving a real feeling of space with brand new furniture and appliances.
The double bedroom is cosy with a double bed, bedside cabinets and wardrobe.
Our favourite area is the conservatory, with it's fantastic views across the fields down to the beach at Newark Bay (just a short walk away), perfect for watching the sun set.
The shower room has electric shower and cubicle, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.
Like THE CROFT has everything you need for a perfect holiday in the beautiful Orkney Islands.

Pets are welcome also and you will have use of the paddock next door.

Enclosed (fenced) garden area to the front with countryside & sea views.

Loved our stay here, we arrived late in the dark but it was still easy to find. The location is gorgeous and we wish we could have stayed a few more days. Everything you need is in the unit and it has a cute outdoor seating area, views of the ocean and islands, and is a short walk to a beautiful beach. Would highly recommend!

Lovely location not too far from St Margaret's Hope village. The Byre is a cosy little cottage and was a lovely place to stay on a wild and windy Orkney night. It has a wood burning fire and well equipped kitchen. We were going to venture out to the local village pub for dinner but ended up staying in and cooking we were so comfortable. Fantastic views out to sea.
