We have just returned from 5 nights in the Sheafy. Gorgeous accommodation clean and comfortable. Micky and Elizabeth made us very welcome. Beautiful views, so relaxing we enjoyed a gentle stroll each evening after dinner with our three boys. We had a day in Rousay and were very fortunate with the weather got fairly close to the seals.

We arrived on the same evening as spivvycarl, below (though a little earlier! :) ) and I must agree with him that the weather was amazingly good for October. I'd been there a fortnight earlier in sun and fierce winds and feared what I might face this week, but it was glorious. I'd been looking forward to 5 nights relaxing... More

We've just returned today from a 4 night stay in Girnal, the smallest of the self-catered apartments at Woodwick Mill. Arriving very late at night, we managed to get very lost (it's not signposted from the main road, but Woodwick House is), but got there eventually! And what a lovely apartment Girnal is. It has beautiful wooden beams, a fabulously... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in September on our first visit to Orkney. The accommodation is fabulous. Spacious rooms, comfy beds, warm under floor heating, fully equipped kitchen and superb bathroom fittings. Definitely a 5 star experience and in a lovely setting. There was nothing to fault and it made our few days in Orkney memorable. I would recommend... More

Stayed at self-catering accommodation Kiln at Woodwick Mill and the only disappointment was the weather ! So much rain! Otherwise, everything at Woodwick Mill was well thought out - even a picnic rucksack with plates, cutlery and plastic glasses was provided! fantastic panoramic views of islands across Woodwick Bay from upstairs windows at Kiln. The accommodation is ideally situated to... More

We stayed at Woodwick Mill on a trip up to visit family and stayed in Sheafy for 6 nights with our 2 girls. The accommodation was stunning. It is an old mill which has been restored to a VERY high standard, everything is so fresh, modern and clean and airy - the walls were SO thick you could not hear... More

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
