We have been to Scotland a number of times, but never up to Orkney. We enjoy self-catering accommodations that are unique, and Woodwick Mill did not disappoint. We stayed in the Girnal suite, and could not have been more pleased with the comfort, cleanliness, and amenities provided. A vase of fresh flowers in every window, a current newspaper, fresh milk...

We knew we wanted to do a self-catered cottage, for the Orkney portion our trip. Woodwick Mill made the trip all I could have asked for. This is an old mill, that has been lovingly restored. The outside looks very authentic, with the mill burn (stream) flowing along side of the building. We stayed in Girnal, as there was just... More

We stayed at Woodwick Mill in the Girnal suite for 5 nights in April. The suite itself was large and very clean. The bed was super comfortable. We slept with the bedroom window open so we could hear the creek flowing by and the birdsong in the morning. Very peaceful. After driving all around Orkney it seemed to me that... More

We are enjoying our second visit to Woodwick Mill, listed on Trip Advisor as a Hotel but it is actually self catering accommodation. Micky Austin's award-winning conversion of the Mill at Woodwick is imaginative and superb and our apartment, the Kvern, is wonderfully warm, comfortable and beautifully equipped. Comfortable beds, great shower and jacuzzi bath, super kitchen with premium washing... More

My family and myself have just returned from a week in this fabulous accomodation and I can tell you words will not do it justice. From the minute we entered the front door we were just blown away at the quality of the mill. We were staying in the "KIln" appartment which has the most fantastic views from the upstairs... More

Just returned from a week in the Orkney Ilse staying at Woodwick Mill. As could be expected the weather was rather mixed, so it was fantastic to retreat at the end of the day to the high class accommodation at Woodwick Mill. The flat we stayed in was fitted out to a very high standard. It was warm, comfortable and... More

My wife and I recently spent a week in the Girnal. We were delighted with the very high quality of the accommodation and its unique features. Woodwick Mill is well located in a picturesque part of Orkney with many of Orkney's must see features not far distant. We enjoyed our stay very much and have added Woodwick Mill to the... More

I recently stayed in the 5 bed (Kiln) apartment for a weekend with friends. The apartment was beautifully designed and excellently kitted out with everything you could possibly need. They seemed well prepared for families too as everything was wipe-able. It was such a lovely place to stay with great views. We were given a lovely welcome and felt very... More

Have just returned from an amazing couple of days in Orkney with friends. The Woodwick Mill was faultless, we loved every minute of it. We had such a warm welcome on arrival, even having some Orkney oatcakes, biscuits and milk left for us! The apartment was so well equipped, there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided for. The views... More
