Holiday cottage in Deerness

Deerness cottage

“the best place to stay in orkney” I stayed for 6 Weeks at the Tiffyhall self catering holiday cottage (4 Sleeps). It's a perfect place for a retreat and a good basis for discovering the Orkney Isles. The cottage has 2 very nice bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen with a dinig table, a cosy living room, highspeed internet connection and a very nice bathroom with shower and tub. The Cottage is lovingly equipped and the landlords Tina and Paul were very helpful und caring. The souroundings in deerness are peaceful and breathtakingly beautiyful with views to the Newark Bay and the Mullhead Reserve with the Gloup und the Brough of Deerness nearby. There's a store about 1 km from the cottage and big supermarkets in Kirkwall. The cottage is on the bus line to the airport and to Kirkwall, so you can do daytrips to the sites of Orkney without a car, allthough it would be easier if you have one. I really enjoyed visiting the World Heritage sites of Maes Howe, Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and Skara Brae. I made some very nice coastal walks along immpressive cliffsat Yesnaby, Mullhead and Hoxa and crossed the Churchill Barriers to Lamb Holm, Glimbs Holm, Burray and South Ronaldsay. The lovely town of Kirkwall with its cafés, pubs, shops, a very nice museum and the Highland Park Distillery is worth more then one visit. I can just highly recommend to stay at Tiffyhall.

“Would have stayed forever!” Sherwood Cottage is everything we imagined and more. Aside from being spotless, it provided all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was well stocked for all our cooking experiences, the bedrooms were cozy and spacious and the bathrooms were a real treat, especially the tub! After long days of hiking and exploring, we felt like we were coming home instead of to a rental property. The huge yard and gardens were beautiful and so safe for our seventeen month old grand daughter. Thank-you so much for the pride you take in this lovely cottage.

“A Lovely Tranquil House” A very comfortable, spacious house with fine beds and cheerful decor. It is also most conveniently located in Kirkwall. My family party had a lovely stay. Good garden/outside space too for al fresco dining. Minor issues: it could do with a DVD player and more cutlery, crockery etc. and a bigger fridge.

“The perfect base to explore The Orkney Islands” Kringla, which had been recently completed in July 2012, represented a wonderful base for our family to explore the wonders of the Orkney Mainland and a few of the islands. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with all the conveniences we needed for our stay. The property is within very short walking distance of a village shop and a pub/hotel. Walks from the house into the surrounding countryside are filled with wonderful sights. The folk of Dounby are friendly and welcoming. Wider afield, Mainland is endowed with many attractions. These span human history; from the Neolithic to World War 2. There is never a dull moment in Orkney. Go to Orkney; go to Dounby; stay at Kringla. You'll have a wonderful holiday!

Kirkdale Apartments, Wyre Apartment
Perfect clean and comfortable base for sightseeing in Orkney.

Based in Evie, this was the perfect apartment with every need catered for with helpful owners who were on hand if needed. An excellent place to stay. … see more

Excellent House Near Centre of Kirkwall

House was in an excellent location, just a few minutes walk from the centre. The house was a very good size and very comfortable. Would definitely stay there again. … see more
Stromness Apartments - Meadow View
Well situated and well appointed house

Just 20 mins walk out of Stromness, the apartment is in a great place with views over the open countryside of West Mainland Orkney. [The distance is important as, given Scotland's drink-driving laws, you really need to be able to walk to the pub]. The apartments are built on a hill with the kitchen, toilet and living room upstairs whilst downstairs the apartment had two bedrooms - a double and a twin -, both en-suite. The double bed was very comfortable and the shower excellent. There is parking immediately adjacent to the door. The kitchen was well appointed with washing machine, dish-washer and fridge and a good cooker and - best of all - decent knives [although they need sharpening] and cooking utensils. For self-catering accommodation it would benefit from a freezer although I suppose the lack pushes you into buying fresh local produce - no bad thing. The living room has a 32 in TV/DVD and also a CD player with a range of CDs. There are two couch beds in the living room. However these aren't very comfortable for sitting watching the TV. Upside is the location, 3 toilets [this is a real plus particularly as the cisterns take so long to fill that you may need all three!!!], comfortable beds and well appointed kitchen. Downside is lack of freezer & uncomfortable couches.see more

Widefirth Cottage 2, Rendall, Mainland, Orkney
Lovely dog-friendly bungalow.

Great bungalow for a six-person family reunion. Dog welcome, with large secure grassy garden and nice beach walk nearby. Interesting sights; we enjoyed the Italian Chapel and Scara Brae. Beaches seem to be mainly rocky. In September the islands were not busy and we enjoyed a relaxed week. The landlords were helpful but not intrusive.see more
Brockan Cottage
Perfect property

We have just spent a week on Orkney with wild weather but amazing scenery and wildlife. Brockan Cottage was warm and well equipped with underfloor heating throughout, comfy beds and good powerful showers and has such great views over Marwick bay we were happy to just sit by the large windows and watch the weather when it was too rough to be out! We would certainly recommend it as a base to explore Orkney.see more
