This newly converted stable/outbuilding has been turned into a beautifully finished, very comfortable, modern cottage. Complete with its very own unique flagstone roof. Situated just a 5 minute stroll from the Cathedral and town centre, and 10 minutes from the town harbour with a variety of cafes, pubs and restaurants on the way. The cottage itself is in a small square off Main Street, which despite its name is a very quiet side street. Off street parking area available.
Main street is a small one way street in the old part of Kirkwall. St Magnus Cathedral and the town centre are only a few minutes walk away.
  • Jimmy's place was ideal. Very cosy, and spotlessly clean, with great amenities, in a great location!

  • Cozy, comfortable, and convenient! If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Kirkwall, it’s hard to imagine a better spot. Easy walking distance to the heart of town, picturesque inside and out, comfortable couch and bed - an unexpected bonus was all the natural light from the skylights! Next time I’m in Orkney, I’m checking for this spot first!

    Alex2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Jimmy's place was very clean and well presented. A comfortable bed and a well equipped kitchen for simple cooking. The location is very handy and the flat has a cosy atmosphere, with local info about the area to. I will stay again.

  • This was a great, and stylish, place to stay. It had everything we could need, including extra's like milk, tea and coffee, and it felt like all the space had been used. It was lovely and light as well as being well heated too. This made it feel really cosy. It is about five minutes walk from the centre of Kirkwall and was also within close walking distance of the major supermarkets. We only met Jimmy very briefly but he was very friendly and it was clear he was more than happy to help if we had any issues. The only drawback was that parking directly outside the accommodation was within a very small, and tight, space. This might be challenging for larger/ multiple vehicles. While this was not an issue for us, it did appear that there was ample parking spaces in town and on the roads close by. All in all my partner and I really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back in a heartbeat!

    James2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic little cottage which has everything you need. Faultless and highly recommended for any stay in Kirkwall. Very accommodating host. Cannot recommend highly enough!

    Martin2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • A modern, well equipped, spotlessly clean accommodation, perfectly situated for exploring Orkney and just a short walk into Kirkwall. Highly recommended.

    Scott2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Cottage was the perfect place to spend a few nights on Orkney. We loved the compact nature of the cottage which met our needs and some. Jimmy was an excellent host who was easily contactable and supportive of our requests. We will be back!

    Monique2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Purely amazing experience. Lovely little touches everywhere. Jimmy really thinks of everything! We had a pleasant stay xxx

  • really enjoyed a relaxing stay at this cosy flat. with its cottagey-feel and decorated with elements from nature, it has the perfect atmosphere when wanting to escape everyday life. it is in easy walking distance to everything and has a simple yet very practical kitchen with everything I needed. warm and fluffy blankets were really appreciated when arriving to a cold flat late in the evening. would however recommend to bring slippers when visiting in the colder months.

  • Lovely house and host. Got to see everything on the island that we wanted. Nothing more than a 30 minutes drive. Very happy all round!

    Ben2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Lovely and warm in mid November and a great welcome with home bakes too !

    Gareth2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful little cottage this is! The photos don’t actually do it justice. This was a real home away from home, with every little detail taken care of.

    Nerrida2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Karen and Colin were fantastic hosts. Their bungalow is immaculate and equipped with everything you could need. Located down a quiet track it was an incredibly peaceful retreat to return to each day. Thoroughly recommended.

    Harry2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay. We felt very relaxed and at home. There were chickens and cats, such a lovely place. And the homemade scones and fresh eggs were amazing!!

    Heather2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Has everything you need and is very warm and cosy! We have relatives that transported us around, so if you are travelling independently you will need a car. Or you can just stay at home and enjoy the solitude of the surroundings and the natural beauty!

    Terry2019-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great wee cottage located 15mins east of Kirkwall. Worth it for the hot scones on arrival. Delicious!!

    James2019-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • For our trip around Scotland and Orkney, Karen and Collin's cottage was hands down the best. Far better than we expected. They have done an amazing remodel of an old cottage and provided everything you could possibly expect for your comfort and enjoyment. We absolutely loved this property! PS: The fresh baked scones and personal greeting from them was about as warm a welcome as you could expect.

    Eastbank House is a quietly situated Georgian house, close to the centre of town. We offer single, double and triple en suit rooms. The rooms are quiet and peaceful with towels and bedding provided. Each room has it's own small but private toilet and shower.
    The house was built in 1824 as a family house and we have converted it into a friendly meeting place for travellers of all ages.
    We are situated close to the town centre of Kirkwall. The closest shops are just a short drive or 5 minute walk from here. The town offers cozy cafes, restaurants, pubs, a weekend night club as well as a tourist information, bus depot and ferry transport to the outer isles.
  • This was my second time staying at Malcolms. He kindly picked my up from the ferry terminal and dropped my off in the center in the morning, as I had a heavy suitcase. Lovely all day breakfast offered as well. Malcolm is very helpful with anything you need. Room was lovely and cosy and quite spacious. Amazing stay

    Emma2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • You will find a very helpful and well informed host in Malcolm at East Bank hostel. The house is situated within an easy walk of the centre of Kirkwall. I had a comfortable single room with en suite bathroom. Renovations are almost complete in the large kitchen, which is well equipped for self catering. This is a great hostel to stay in while you explore the wonderful Orkney Islands.

    Pauline2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Malcolm is an excellent host who will do everything he can possibly do to make sure your stay goes as you would wish.

    Timothy 2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Genial host, private space, but with the opportunity to mix with other guests if you wish. Close to everything and on a bus route, but nice and quiet.

    Dawn2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Malcolm very kindly let me check in at the last minute when my ferry was canceled and was an excellent host.

    Allie2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you want 5* accom, then dont stay, but if you want 3*+ accom and local info that is not often given at 5* hotels, then consider Malcolms place. He offered and I accepted him picking me up at 11pm at the ferry, and dropping me back 4 days later for the 11.45pm ferry. He, and other guests were there to help and be involved with my stay, or leave me to my devices at other times. In other words I was able to feel what Orkney life was all about. The bed was great, the shower hot in my own en-suite, the full use of the kitchen and endless coffee / toast / fruit, was the tipping point to this being a great experience.

    Hayden2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, just a short walk from the centre. The kitchen was a little messy cause he is renovating and looks it’s gonna be a very nice one :)

    Gabriele2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Super homely hostel just out of the centre of Kirkwall, but of walking distance to everything! The room was cosy and warm, and the communal kitchen areas are super well equipped and useful! Malcolm is a lovely and welcoming host, and so generous to his guests!

  • Simple but practical space, with everything one needs, in a perfect location looking out on Stromness Bay. It doesn't get better than having morning coffee in an armchair by the window as the morning ferry sails out.

    Very comfortable studio apartment with private access, kitchen and bathroom. Located 150yards from St.Magnus Cathedral hugely convenient and outstanding location in the heart of Kirkwall. Close walking distance to a selection of excellent local pubs, restaurants and Coffee shops. Super fast fibre broadband and smart TV inclusive.
    Single travelers, business travellers and couples.
    Victoria St is in the heart of Kirkwall, close to all amenities and the famous St Magnus Ctherdal is less than 150yrds from the aprtment. The flat is well presented, clean and well equipped. The bedroom is very relaxing with a great bed, smart TV and superfast fibre WiFi. But please be perfectly clear this is a three-roomed property, above my coffee shop. It is hugely convenient and very cosy. It is not luxurious or exceptional. It is comfortable and good value. Cheers!
  • Simons place is a fantastic little apartment above his also fantastic coffee and sun bed shop. The flat was cosy and had everything we needed. Simon was very hospitable and went out of his way to accommodate us at very short notice. Perfect location only a couple of mins from the city centre and very affordable. Superb place to stay.

The coffee shop is great too!

    The cottage is in a quiet rural area 10 minute walk from stromness pier head. There is panoramic views with the island of hoy and the Atlantic to the west and wild country side and farmland in the east. There is also a large mature garden which houses some hens. It is also well situated for walker's as in every direction is a nice walk. Weaverhall is in a beautiful secluded area but all local amenities are easily accessible.
    Our comfortable cottage is set in a stunning area and has a private garden for your use. The cottage is well equipped for your stay with a shower room, combined washer/tumble drier, cooking facilities and equipment. All towels and bedding are provided. WiFi access is also available.
  • We stayed at Weaverhall Cottage in March 2020 and had a fantastic time in this accommodation. Neil pre arranged to meet us in Stromness to guide us to the cottage as it was a bit tricky to find on google maps. The cottage was clean, in a great location if you have a car, and had stunning views over the island of Hoy.

    Danny2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little cottage with a stunning view! But its good to have a car(:

    Tessa2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at this cottage. There are gorgeous views over the sea, and lovely walks nearby. The cottage had everything we needed for a self catering trip and was really cosy with lots of nice touches! Ingrid and Neil were very helpful and so accommodating. Excellent hosts and we would definitely stay again (Probably in summer though! 😂)

    Alison2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Neil's house. It was really cosy and homely in the evenings with stunning views during the day. A short walk to Stromness (though I'd bring a torch for the evenings if you are walking back) and a thoroughly pleasant place to unwind after your day. Would stay again.

    Sasha2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed at John's cabin for 4 nights in August. John was kind and friendly and so helpful about the local area and even gave us a lift to Birsay and lent us bikes to cycle back. The beds were comfy and the space was clean and cosy. We had our own bathroom and the kitchen facilities we plenty to cook simple meals. If you are looking for a simple stay somewhere wild and beautiful, this is perfect! We'd definitely stay again.

    Helen2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at John and Victoria’s will remain one of the best Airbnb experiences we ever had. They are so welcoming and helpful, and we had a wonderful time talking and sharing with them. Also, we simply LOVED staying in the hut which is so comfortable despite the frequent rain. We are already thinking of coming back next year. If you’re looking for some place to escape from too much civilisation and phone signals, this is the place to be.

    Melissa2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Please see previous review. It’s lovely. We would recommend to anyone and will be going back next year.

  • The camping hut is a cute little space, beautifully presented inside and out and with a stunning view. It’s a little bit of paradise if the weather is kind and even If it’s not! John is a great host and has created some wonderful holiday accommodation with a lot of creative touches.

    Rachel2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • John and Victoria are hosts that went above and beyond to make stay and wonderful and memorable experience. We couldn’t want for kinder, more generous or friendly hosts. The camping hut is in a beautiful location with stunning views overlooking sea and islands. It was warm cosy and tucked away with its own enclosed garden. Facilities including shower and private loo exceeded expectations. The kitchen was well equipped and impeccably clean. We would recommend this to anyone looking to explore this beautiful corner of the world.

    Oliver2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • John welcomed us and was always with great tips to the side. The little hut is awesome. Simple and sufficient. Great view of the sea. Kitchen, WiFi, shower and toilet about 30m away. We would come back anytime.

    Verena2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at orkney in the hut. It is very cosy with a beautiful view at the sea. John is very friendy and helpfull, he has a lot of good tips about orkney. The location is also very central to explore the island. We would definitly reconmend this place!

    Recently converted self-catering accommodation set in the grounds of our family home, just five minutes from St Margaret's Hope ferry terminal. A perfect location for viewing local wildlife or visiting some of Orkney's world-famous Neolithic archaeological sites such as the"Tomb of the Eagles", or wartime sites such as Hoxa Head gun emplacements or the Italian Chapel. Just a 15 minute drive to Kirkwall, across the famous Churchill Barriers with their historic shipwrecks.
    A beautiful converted Byre, with fabulous views out over farmland across Echna Loch and Scapa Flow.
    The Byre lies on a quiet country lane, surrounded by farmland and has beautiful views to the sea, which is about a half-mile away.
  • Great place to stay, outstanding hospitality and the scenery beautiful. Going back to stay next year loved it so much

    Hayley2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Byre is the perfect place for an Orkney retreat and has everything we needed. My teenage son and I spent a happy week there, relaxing in the property, and trying out the different things that part of Orkney. It is far enough away from the main drag to be peaceful, but still close enough to get to things easily. The view over Scapa Flow is breath-taking, and changed with the light every hour. We left with very happy memories.

    Sam2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Ian and Barbara were absolutely fantastic hosts. The Byre was excellent accommodation in a superb setting, overlooking Scapa Flow with good road access to all parts of Burray, Orkney Mainland and South Ronaldsay. (Other Orkney islands are accessible by numerous ferries.) All this at great value for money and naturally comes very highly recommended.

    Mike2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Byre has a view west across the meadows towards Scapa Flow and Hoy. It is more spacious than it appears in the photos, spotless and very well equipped. Ian and Barbara were excellent hosts providing the right level of guidance on where to go, ferries etc. We had a really good week in Orkney as a result.

    Patrick2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay with plenty of space for 3 people, in a stunning location with views across Scapa Flow. The accommodation is very clean, comfortable and warm. Highly recommended.

    Karin2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • The Byre is a great place to stay. It is immaculately clean, cosy and has everything you would need. In a great location with amazing views. Ian and Barbs are great hosts, very friendly and approachable. Would not hesitate recommending The Byre to anyone visiting Orkney.

    James2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were 2 guys looking to do a bit of cycling/sightseeing as well as working from a home from home. The Byre offered great views and a super base and was perfectly functional to our needs. Burray as an area is very well situated and perhaps offers more of an island experience than Kirkwall or Stromness. Highlights, St Margaret’s Hope, Herston and Brough of Birsay. Best local place we visited for coffee/beer/food was Robertson’s where Morag behind the bar was a star! Overall, hopefully will return soon to Orkney and ideally stay at the Byre😍

    Alan/Kirstin2019-06-08T00:00:00Z

  • Graham's apartment in Kirkwall is fantastic. Modern kitchen and bathroom and very comfortable double bed. The apartment was spotless and we had everything that we needed for our one week stay. Graham was extremely helpful and provided us with lots of useful local information. We definitely hope to stay at Graham's apartment on our next visit to Orkney.

    Warwick2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location

    Aled2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Graham's flat couldn't be any more perfect. It's literally a three minute walk to the nearest restaurant. A grocery store is about a two minute walk. The place is clean and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

    Jason2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place right in the middle of Kirkwall ! nice and warm, walking distance to the harbor, St. Magnus, shops, restaurants, etc. everything we could ask for in a Orkney Holiday! Graham met us in person for check-in, that was nice, and he answered any questions we had about the area. Can't wait to return to Orkney!

    Adrian2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place to stay in the heart of Kirkwall within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. My husband has slight walking difficulties but could walk to the main street and restaurants no problem. The flat itself is cosy and comfy, even in November!, with plenty of space to relax. Would have no hesitation in recommending this property for anyone

  • Fantastic hospitality. Alan’s house is warm and comfortable and we had everything we needed for our stay. It was also within easy walking distance of the Kirkwall Town Centre. Alan has a huge knowledge of Orkney and was generous with giving us tips on places to go and things to see. He also helped overcome a problem that we had with our transport which we really appreciated.

    Dawne2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful hospitality, don’t hesitate to book with Alan

    Patricia2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Alan and Wilma are generous, warm, and welcoming. The tub and towel warmers were a nice treat, the property is lovely, and the location is great - close to town center and bus routes but cozy and quiet at night. The coffee is A+ too!

    Ryan2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had an exceptional stay at Alan’s house. He and Wilma are outstanding hosts. They were full of information and good cheer. I would highly recommend a stay here and we look forward to a return trip! Don’t skip the breakfast as Alan is a great cook. 5 stars all the way!!!

    On the outskirts of the historic town of Stromness in the West Mainland of Orkney, this single-story barn conversion has one bedroom, an open-plan living/dining/kitchen space, and a bathroom with bath and walk-in shower. All on one level, the property is wheelchair accessible throughout. It has stunning views across Hoy Sound and out to the open Atlantic. Parking is available right outside, but if you visit without a car, regular buses from Stromness go to all areas of Orkney.
    The building was converted four years ago from an old barn. It has a traditional, Orkney stone exterior, and an up-to-date and comfortable interior. Large windows on the seaward side flood the building with light, and give an unrestricted view across Hoy Sound. The kitchen and bathroom are stylish and modern. Slate floors throughout have underfloor heating, and there is a multi-fuel stove in the sitting room. There is a good stock of Orkney books and maps, as well as general reading material, board games, jigsaws and playing cards.
    Innertown is in the parish of Stromness, within easy walking distance of the town centre, but we are surrounded by farmland, and close to the beach. Houses are widely spaced - we have a couple of fields between us and our nearest neighbours in each direction. There are footpaths along the shore, taking you to the golf course and the town of Stromness in one direction, or to the cliffs at Yesnaby and the neolithic village of Skara Brae in the other. Dominating the horizon are the heather-covered hills of Hoy: the highest hills in all of Orkney.
  • Jane's beautifully renovated house is amazing! The interior is very stylish yet functional and contains everything you need for a few days on the Orkneys. She even provided us with bread, coffee, tea and other breakfast essentials! The view from the house is breathtaking. Additionally, Jane answered very quickly and made sure that we were able to find the house immediately. She made us feel very much at home. Thank you so much for that wonderful stay! Definitely worth a visit!

    Eva2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful relaxing soothing space to experience. The house and view and close proximity to the beach made my 3 days feel like a spa break. Highly recommend. I will be back soon.

    Isobel2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • If your looking for somewhere away from the hustle & bustle of every day life, this place is perfect. The view out the window are better than anything you'd see on a TV. Definitely need more than a long weekend to see everything these spectacular islands have to offer. Can't wait to return. Think we've found a home from home.

    Mandy2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • The only drawback of Jane's house is that you have to leave. The house is a jewel that makes your stay on the island more comfortable and personal. Everything is perfectly maintained, the comfortable bed, the kitchen is dreamy and the views, these views are a separate issue. Discovering the Orkney Islands is a wonderful experience, but if you stay in this house it will make it more unique and special

    Marta2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Probably the best place to stay on Orkney. Toft is the perfect balance between peace haven and proximity to Stromness. We will undoubtedly be back on Orkney, and Toft is the first place we will be looking to book!

    Vincent2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • If your looking for beautiful views and amazing comfort , this is your place for an Orkney stay.

    Stefanie2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is an oasis of calm and peace. Magnificent views over to Hoy, and all the creature comforts you would ever need. Fab comfy bed, excellent shower and a bath for a soak. The kitchen is thoughtfully kitted out with the best pans we’ve ever had making my scrambled eggs even better!! We’ve had a really lovely time staying here and plan to return. Thank you so much.

    Cosy attic double bedroom with a table & two chairs. It has it's own en suite shower room. The house is on the waters edge in the heart of Stromness with it's wonderful old cobbled streets & lanes. It's a short walk from the ferry terminal. With a selection of small shop's closed by, a little further is a co op (it has extensive opening hours). You'll also find hotel restaurant's & cafe's close by. There's no direct vehicle access, though there is parking close by.
    With it being an attic room on the second floor it may not be for people over 6ft 2 or have difficulties with stairs (though the steps are not steep). The bed is a standard double. You'll also find a small fridge, toaster & kettle, with a selection of tea's & coffee, (you'll need to bring your own milk). The pictures tell the story, the house is right on the waters edge, it has a wide sea wall, perfect for sitting on, watching the boats & wildlife come & go. It's only a few minutes walk from shops, ferry terminal/bus stop & museum. You'll also find wonderful displays in the Pier art centre. The room is nice & cosy, but you have space to move around. There's a built in cupboard which is big enough to store luggage away. You also have your own heater, so can control the temperature in the room.
    Stromness is a very peaceful place to be, & the house is very secluded even though it's in the town. Orkney has very little crime, so it's a very safe place to be. We also have a public swimming pool, it's situated at the north end of town & of course a 18 hole golf course at the south end (overlooking the Island of Hoy).
  • Susan's accommodation is cosy, clean and comfortable and Susan is a great host. Her home is very central and the views over the harbour are lovely. We had our own bathroom and we also had a toaster and microwave in our room and we really appreciated being able to prepare snacks. Stromness and the Orkneys are great to visit - the scenery is wonderful and there is so much history to learn about. We recommend staying with Susan.

    Jean2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's place is lovely and a great location! Really enjoyed staying in her place which was on the top floor. Susan herself is lovely and happy to provide lots of information regarding where to go and the best things to see! Highly recommend staying here. The only downside was that we didn't have access to kitchen but she provided a microwave, kettle and tea/coffee.

    Alison2020-01-19T00:00:00Z

    Finlo & Liz2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • The place is clean and cosy, it has a wonderful wonderful view and you can reach anything in Stromness in few minutes. A few houses ahead I could hire a bicycle, a few houses downwards there is a little grocery store. Susan is very reliable and likes to communicate, I really liked chatting with her in between. I was sad that I could not stay longer, it is a beautiful place! Absolutely recommendable!

It was very homely and spacious with everything provided that we could possibly need. The hosts left a welcome pack and up to date information about all local amenities, attractions and places to eat. They thought of everything. We had a lovely stay.

Thanks, a great base for exploring Orkney.

    Bernadette2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location - very close to supermarkets and in walking distance of centre of Kirkwall, which itself is in the centre of Orkney mainland. There is a parking space at the house which is on a nice quiet street. There is a well equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher - so no dishes! The bathroom is a wet room which would suit those with disabilities as well as able bodied guests. The house is clean, warm, safe and secure in a friendly town on a beautiful island!

    No.2 Tiffyhall is close to great views, the beach, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the neighbourhood, the light, the comfy bed, the cosiness, and the kitchen. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    No.2 Tiffyhall was previously a small barn on our small croft , which is one of the oldest in the parish and was part of a working farm once owned by the Earl of Zetland. The whole site fell into disrepair and stood empty for 50 years until it was fully renovated and extended in 2008 and has been transformed into a comfortable holiday cottage.
    Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat, a rambler’s delight or a family holiday home, No.2 Tiffyhall which forms part of a small croft which has views overlooking Newark Bay and the Pentland Firth to the south, is the perfect place for you to enjoy Orkney and its Isles.
  • A wonderful little home with everything you could need for a comfortable break. Beautiful location and Karen is very friendly. Highly recommended!

    Gary2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tiffyhall is a very comfortable holiday cottage. The view from the big window is completely stunning. All the facilities are excellent. The additional treats that Karen provides are very tasty.

    Sharron2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Karen was very nice. Karen is a very kind person. She takes care of you as if you are part of her family. She welcomes you with "Scones", a pastry from England, with fresh eggs and local products from the gin distillery. The accommodation is very clean and contains everything you need to feel good.

    Mathilde2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • The converted barn at Tiffy Hall is absolutely beautiful. It is very spacious and has everything you need and more for your stay. Karen was there to meet us when we arrived and had made us some scones and left fresh eggs for us from her own chickens! There is a lot of info on the info sheet and various books and pamphlets about the area. The lounge and bedroom has fantastic views over the neighboring farms and to the sea and Orkney has much to offer in terms of tourism. We had an amazing stay at Tiffy Hall, thank you Karen, and we hope to be back someday 😊.

The attention to detail in the design is extraordinary, it's like stepping into a museum/film-set whilst being an incredibly well equipped and practical space. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the centre of town, very quiet at night but close enough for your fish and chips to still be warm by the time you get back! Stromness itself is a charming place, good amenities for its size and a great setting off point for anything you might want to see on the islands. If you get the chance to book into Fisherman's Cottage I would take it. It's a pretty unique place and staying there was one of the (many) highlights of our trip.

    40 Alfred Street, Stromness is a charming 1800's, 4 star cottage set right on the sea with its own private pier and parking. It has a magnificent view over the sea, with stunning views of sunrises and passing vessels. We also have 4 other Cottages on the sea on the Stromness Harbour, a one bedroom, three-bedroom and two, four-bedroom Cottages. Each Cottage is equipped with absolutely everything including a Cook's Larder (lots of coffees/teas/hot chocolate, condiments etc). Wi-Fi, Library.
    This architect re-modelled stone, 1800's, fisherman's cottage - has loads of character and is positioned a few meters from the sea. It has it's own private pier with tables and benches to enjoy and it also has access to the little stony beach at low time via it's own private steps. Parking is right outside the front door. It is equipped with everything possible to a very high 4 star standard. Including a really cosy fireplace if you wish to get seriously snugly!
  • Splendid cottage in a delightful town on a fascinating island. Christmas spent here visiting family who live in Orkney. Was concerned that the cottage in its "in the sea" location might be a bit cold and damp - very quickly we had it cosy and very comfortable. Wonderful sunrises and sunsets with a mix of both millpond and rough seas to enjoy. Even in darkest and cold December there is much to do and see in Orkney and the cottage was absolutely the appropriate location from which to enjoy the island.

    Tony2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rosemary's cottage is in a superb location and Stromness is such an interesting and unique wee town. The cottage is full of interesting bits and pieces and is very comfortable - especially after a day exploring brochs and getting muddy! A home from home.

    Norma2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • 40 Alfred Street is a spacious yet cosy cottage with its own pier and little beach, making it the ideal place to experience the history and charm of Stromness. The house is exceptionally clean, well stocked and very comfortable. It's ideal for spending quality family time and offers so much more than just a base for exploring the Orkney islands.

    Lindsey2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay - much bigger inside than expected, and the outside has great views. Really felt the history of the cottage and the town while visiting.

    Iain2019-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The standard of this gorgeous house was well above the standard for a holiday rental property, I would not hesitate for a second to recommend it to others.

    Eilidh2018-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Rosemary's place was absolutely beautiful! It was situated right in town and allowed for easy access to a lot in Stromness. She was also so accessible over email, and always responded very quickly to all of our questions. I would highly recommend staying with Rosemary!

    Bailey2018-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Orkneys, Stromness and our little cottage - a combination made in heaven! Before I talk about Rosemary and The Cottage... the Orkney experience is amazing. After driving around the Islands... Stromness is definitely the place to stay - it is just gorgeous. We loved it! Rosemary is quick to respond and most helpful. We travel a lot and use Airbnb regularly and we both agree that Rosemary's attention to detail and all the little extras she has thought of and generously provided definitely adds to the experience. We loved the cottage and felt right at home, cosy and comfortable. Thank you Rosemary... we hope to return.

    Karen2018-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I stay in hotels at least half the year for my work, so when we take a break I much prefer to stay at home to relax. Fortunately for me there's places like 40 Alfred St., which, despite the cliché, really is a home from home. Despite the mighty storm lashing at the windows it was very cosy inside, the multi-fuel burner warms the house in a jiffy. There was everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, which was very well appointed with high quality white goods. The bedrooms were decorated to a high standard, and very comfortable, although the entrance to the en-suite upstairs requires you to duck a fair bit - charming in its own way! The views out the windows were like ever-changing oil paintings of the sea, and if the weather is good enough there's a lovely little picnic table to eat al-fresco on your own private pier. Communication with the host, Rosemary, was always prompt and friendly, although I haven't told her yet that we inadvertently stole her coffee filter papers (sorry). Couldn't recommend this place highly enough, and we'll definitely be back...

  • The cottage was ideal for our purposes. We were a group of four plus our well behaved dog. Hannah's communication was excellent and we were able to find the house and settle in with no problems. There is lots of local information and the rooms are all spacious, comfortable, clean and warm. We really enjoyed sitting around the kitchen table or chatting in the living room. The views from the property are wonderful and the location is very handy for the ferry and for getting into the main town. It is a great base for exploring all across the islands with fresh air, peace and quiet in abundance. Hannah was great at keeping in touch. We highly recommend and would love to go back one day.

    Dan And Alex2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spacious place, so comfy and warm. Lovely new carpets. Everywhere was so clean and the location was ideal as it was only ten minutes from the ferry. Views are amazing and a fantastic sandy beach only a mile away. We loved Orkney and this place made it very special. I am already booking up with Hannah to come back next month!

Although in an area with lots going on the large shared garden is peaceful and there is seating in the courtyard, to enjoy a glass or two or cup of tea/coffee after a hectic day touring our islands.

    Our house is just on the outskirts of Kirkwall and very close to Orkney Golf Club. It has great views over the bay from the town to the Isles. The double room is newly refurbished for 2018. Breakfast cereals, bread/toast and tea/coffee is included.
    We are situated just off the main Kirkwall to Stromness road on the outskirts of the town in a detached Bungalow. We have a breakfast room which guests have exclusive use of throughout the day, not just for breakfast. Guests will also have use of the toilet/shower room which is not shared with the hosts. There is a cat living here but he doesn't get near the guest room.
    This is a quiet neighbourhood and although there is a main road nearby the noise is minimal. Orkney Golf club is just a 2 minute walk from the house and is open to visitors.
  • We had a lovely time here. It's easy to get to the sites like Scara Brae, Stones of Stenness, etc. The room is private, but no lock. The bathroom is private but down the public hall, so it's more like a flat share than a private space... but very comfortable and with wonderful hosts. No microwave, but there is a toaster and refrigerator. We were very happy with Jackie's place.

    April2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie and Keith were the perfect hosts making our stay most enjoyable. The accommodation was spotless, with a delightful breakfast room and amazing views. We will be recommending them to other guests. Alec & Doreen, Kirkcudbright.

  • This is a really nice place and a great value! The room is ample, comfortable and well-equipped and the whole place, despite having some shared spaces, feels really private. The whole place is very clean and Jackie is a great host. The view can't be beat and the addition of a breakfast nook with continental breakfast fixin's make it very nice. It seems like it is out of town and is as quiet as if it were but it is just a quick walk from the Kirkwall city center (a little over five minutes). We would definitely stay here again.

    Jesse2019-09-30T00:00:00Z

    Comfortable, clean, modern house set in a quiet, residential area close to the centre of Kirkwall. Donna's place is situated in a convenient location, with it's own parking spot, although, being close to shops and amenities, it's a good choice for visitors who travel without a car. It is a 5 minute walk to supermarkets and small local shops and less than 10 minutes to the town centre, tourist information centre, bus station and sea front or to the sports centre, swimming pool and cinema.
    Donna's house is freshly decorated with comfortable beds and good quality soft furnishings. It has a fully equipped kitchen, cooker and fridge, all new in summer 2019. It is in a private courtyard , set just off one of the main roads in Kirkwall.
    Kirkwall is a bustling historic town with all the amenities you'd expect of a larger settlement, as well as unique features such as St Magnus Cathedral. There are plentiful interesting shops and places to eat, all within easy walking distance. No trip to Orkney is complete without a visit to some (or all) of the archaeological wonders of the island, such as Skara Brae or the Broch of Gurness and an opportunity to experience the unique calm of the Italian Chapel on Lamb Holm. Nature lovers can spot puffins nesting on cliff faces and curious seals in the sea below. If you are lucky, you might see an otter or an orca. Whether you wish to sample the vibrant cultural and sporting life of Orkney, go back in time and immerse yourself in it's history or just chill out and be blown away by the seascape and natural world, there is something here for you.
  • Well located accommodation. Modern, warm, comfortable, well equipped - ideal. Lots of nice touches. Thanks Donna.

  • Donna's place was absolutely lovely. It was much nicer than we expected and she was kind enough to supply us with things for breakfast the next morning, although three supermarkets were minutes away. The beds were comfortable and the heating worked well; we felt at home. Donna even helped us figure out our travel plans during the holidays with confusing schedules. This is a great find and I would definitely stay there again if I make it back to lovely Orkney.

    Yaffa2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

  • We had an excellent time here. The accommodation had everything we needed for the weekend and is situated a short walk away from all the shops, restaurants and bars. We were glad we chose to stay here rather than in the hotel our friends stayed at as it was so peaceful on the Friday/Saturday night unlike the hotel. Kathryn had no one in after us so let us leave a little later which suited us perfectly. The place was spotless and we would definitely recommend staying here.

    Amy2016-11-13T00:00:00Z

  • Katryn was very helpful, even picking is up on a rainy night from the ferry terminal and giving us a mini-tour of Kirkwall on the way home. The apartment itself has all ameneties needed including very fast wi-fi and Sky TV and was super-clean as well. From the apartment, which is in a residential area it is only a 10 minute walk to the harbour and shopping district.

  • Kathryn welcomed us with her lovely daughter. She showed us around the unit and pointed out all the amenities. Her unit had everything we could want. Her description was accurate in her listing and even better. She was kind enough to let us use her clothes washer and dryer. We were close enough to the town center to either walk or drive. There was also tourist information available in the unit. We also enjoyed the little touches like coffee, tea, sugar, milk, cookies and bread for toast. It was a wonderful stay.

    Kirkwall, Orkney, United Kingdom

    Brymire Cottage is a unique and charming cottage, surrounded by farm land and situated in the parish of Tankerness in the East Mainland of Orkney; approximately 2 miles from Kirkwall Airport and 5 miles from Kirkwall Town Centre. Many guests advise that they have not had adequate time to truly view all that Orkney has to offer. Make sure your booking is adequate length for all you want to see and do; as many guests advise that a guest requires at least a four night stay or longer.
    Renovated in November 2018 to a high standard, this cottage had a new kitchen and air source heating installed, new decoration, carpets, vinyl and furniture. Each room has a colour scheme linked to Orkney with the bedroom featuring an “Aurora” theme, the living room a “summer/autumnal Orkney” theme, the bath/shower room an “Orkney beach/shoreline” theme and the Kitchen a “weathered Orkney” theme with a cheeky hint of copper reflecting the whisky and distilleries of Orkney. Also featured in the cottage are canvas prints featuring Orkney scenes and nature. I am a super host and also provide self catering accommodation at the next door property, Brymire House. With two self catering properties in close proximity to each other and each with their own private space, I can offer, if bookings allow, grandparents and the son/daughters’ family their own private holiday accommodation and yet they can holiday together or alternatively, two families wishing to holiday together. 28/12/18 - 31.12.18 Review from my first guests; "Had an absolutely fab time at your lovely wee cottage. Wanted for nothing, totally pristine and your hospitality and baking made our holiday. Beautiful photos and beautiful home. Modern facilities, tastefully decorated in a gorgeous part of the world. Brilliant nights sleep and phenomenal value for money" This review was left in the visitor's book by my first guests. Thank you.
    The cottage is approximately 3 miles from Sheila Fleet's Jewellery workshop and her Auld Kirk Cafe and this is well worth a visit or two. There is also a gin and vodka distillery in the neighbouring parish of Deerness. Beautiful beaches and walks in the area. Wildlife can be viewed in the area and, on many occasions, from the cottage windows. Birdsong can be heard outside the cottage
  • It's a wonderful, peaceful spot in the country. Not too far away from Kirkwall and a doable holiday spot for those without a car. At night you can see a lot of stars because of the lack of light pollution and the cottage is a great cosy little place. Jacqueline and her husband are always there to help if need be and they are just the kindest of people.

    Celine2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cottage is beautiful location. Spotless, well equipped, cosy and comfy. Jacqueline is a great host, very helpful and responds immediately. Highly recommend.

  • It was a pleasure to stay at Jacqueline’s newly refurbished cottage. It’s so clean and cosy, great location just outside of Kirkwall, with lovely views. They kitchen is really well equipped in particular. It was great to be able to make a proper meal!

    Evan2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cottage! So close to everything we needed. Also so clean, beautiful and felt like home! Thanks Jacqueline!

    Taylah2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, consistent and cosy!

    Nathan2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved Jacqueline’s cottage! It was super clean, with every possible amenity that we could imagine. This was one of our all-time favorite places—highly recommended!

    Sarah2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Brymire Cottage is absolutely amazing - so welcoming and cozy! It is exactly as shown in the photos. The views over the fields are stunning. Jacqueline has thought of all details. Each room is decorated with an Orcadian theme and the cottage is spotless. The bed is very comfortable and it is a lovely, quiet location. Jacqueline provides lots of information about experiences to have on the islands - things to do and see and places to eat. As well, she kindly left us some Orkney cheese, shortbread and beremeal biscuits. We hope to return to this beautiful cottage.

    Barbara2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn't find the end of the track in the fog and dark, but Jacqueline very kindly came and met me and showed me in. A very warm welcome to the peace and quiet I sought and found. Thank you.

    Basic loft space above the barn! It is a simple, rustic loft with 2 rooms and a tiny loo. It has a kitchen / dining room with wood-burning stove, dormer window snug and one double bedroom. The loo has no shower which is unusual and why I have priced it so. There are 4 showers downstairs via the main door and balcony - a 5 second walk, these are shared with the campers and glampers. It has a South facing sea view from the balcony. Ideal for couples on an adventures!
    The loft benefits from an elevated position on the farm. The view from the balcony is lovely and peaceful as it is set back from the rest of the campsite but still close to the campsite kitchen and dining space if guests want to hang out there with other guests. Wheems is 3 miles from St Margarets Hope Ferry terminal so easy to get to by car, bike or foot for keen walkers. Wheems Organic Farm is an ecological and organic 6 hectare horticulture smallholding producing organic food for a local market. Wheems farm buildings are 200 years old and have been renovated using local, traditional and sustainable materials (although this barn was only built in 1992). Wheems farmland has been sensitively landscaped with areas set aside for conservation, areas carved out with stone dyke walling, and areas of tree planting. Wheems faces south and east on a hillside above sea-cliffs and beaches on South Ronaldsay. On Orkney there is nature, peace, space and sky. Wheems Loft overlooks cliffs and sandy beaches to the South within 5 minutes walk.
    South Ronaldsay is a peaceful island, the village St Margarets Hope is 3 miles away where there is a nice restaurant called Robertsons and a lovely art and craft shop called The Workshop & Loft Gallery. We have Tomb of the Eagles on South Ronaldsay and Leila Thompson Tapestry. There are some lovely coastal walks including South Ronaldsay coastal walk which goes along the cliffs and you can reach this from Newark Bay - the beach you can see from Wheems 7 mins walk away.
  • It's a brilliant space. It's rustic as some reviews say, but that's more just it's character. It actually has everything you need and the showers are literally 5 seconds away as noted. Great base from which to explore the islands, but also a great hideaway for when the weather turns. Be sure to have a peak in the gallery.

    Fraser2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Away from it all spot with beautiful views from the window seat. We needed the log burner even in August but once ti was going it was nice and cosy. Relaxing stay in an interesting part of the world.

    Christine2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • A unique place, which is what I look for in an Airbnb! Comfortable, cozy, and everything you need to make yourself at home - great views, comfy furnishings, more space than expected. A great base for an unhurried Orkney holiday

    Audrey2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic week at the Loft in Wheems Cottage and already talking about a return next summer. Relaxing and cosy. Thanks for the warmth and hospitality!

    Melissa2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely cosy little place with everything that you’d need to be a little home from home 😊

    Orson2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place to stay, we were in the loft which is VERY spacious and comfortably 'quirky'. Everything is there that you need along with a few basic supplies and Steven bakes most mornings so fresh bread is available. Family and the staff (friends) are super friendly and always there willing to help and advise on places to visit etc., There is a large space for tents/campers/caravans with some electric hook-ups; they also have some pods, a Yurt and a couple of bell tents to hire. It is at the bottom end of South Ronaldsay so transport of some description is necessary unless walking is your thing!! There is a pedestrian ferry from the Scottish mainland into a small pier a couple of miles from the site (you can see it from Wheems) and that has a bus meeting it each trip but you will have to ask the driver nicely to drop you/pick you up at the end of the road as it runs straight to Kirkwall. St. Margaret's Hope is the nearest town and has all the necessary amenities plus a bus service that goes into Kirkwall transport centre.

    Gesella2019-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and stylish space, very natural, eco-friendly place to be. Wonderful spot for a holiday on Orkney, would definitely recommend.

    Jane2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • My short stay at the Loft was great even in meanest Orkneys weather. The location is beautiful and the welcome was warm and thorough (I did not meet the host until the end of the trip, but was shown around by two farm hands - and thanks again for the fresh eggs!). Two hot water bottles under the doona (quilt, bedding, blankets..the word??) were also a pleasant surprise. The Loft was comfortable anyway; with its heater and fireplace and the separate, hot hot shower being only a few steps down from the entrance. PS it was actually a super time to visit the islands...very atmospheric and reasonably unfettered by tourists like me.

    The house is situated in the picturesque town of Stromness and just a 3-5 min drive from the ferry. If you are on foot we will try to collect you if time permits with work. We are situated in a very quiet residential area. You will be greeted by our friendly Labrador Kassie as well as us. Everything is within walking distance, the shops, hotels, swimming pool, and the bus stop is just 1 minute from the house. There is also room for parking in our drive.
    You have your own private sittingroom/bedroom with door lock The downstairs toilet is for your sole use when staying, the family will use the other upstairs. There is lots of information on places to see and where to go whilst visiting Orkney in your room. There are tea and coffee facilities in your room also with the option of a self serve continental breakfast of cereal, toast, tea and coffee in the family kitchen in the mornings.
    We are in a lovely quiet safe neighbourhood.
  • This AirBnB is extremely comfortable and is well located near the harbour in Stromness. Lynn made us very welcome, even meeting us from the ferry in the pouring rain. From there we were easily able to explore Orkney using a hired car , from a local garage.

    Elizabeth2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nia-Roo is a great stay on a remarkable island. Lynn and her capable assistants provide a welcoming and attractive stay. The room has 2 comfortable leather lounges and the bed is very good. The windows are double glazed and the entrance has the traditional double doors. The bathroom was modern and very clean. The location is good for travel to Skara Brae UNESCO locations because it’s 20 minutes drive closer than Kirkwall. It’s a pleasant 10 minute walk along the harbour to Stromness town centre. Both pubs I tried (the Stromness Hotel and the Ferry Inn) offered very good food and service. There are also good shops and cafes in Stromness. I found great coffee each day at the Bayleaf Delicatessen. To top it off the Stromness Museum is an absolute gem.

    Barbara2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great welcome and great place to stay in Stromness. Large, clean bedroom and use of excellent bathroom, plus breakfast. Highly recommend.

    Thomas2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lynn provided an excellent space for a weary cyclist to relax after a day riding into a gale force headwind. The room was homely, and ideal to relax in. Lynn made sure I was settled in and provided ample tea. The house is situate about 5 minutes cycle from the ferry terminal, so is ideal for people arriving or leaving the island.

    Steve2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and comfortable place and warm welcome!
