Stayed for 5 days in March at Brekka and really enjoyed it. Property is very well equipped, warm, very clean and easy to find. Lovely cove a few minutes’ walk away where we saw seals. Short drive north to Lerwick and only 25 mins from the airport. Small shop and cafe (MacKenzies) which can be walked to if needed. Shetland is stunning.
My husband and I stayed for a week in July and had a lovely week walking, island hopping and bird watching. We loved Brekka Lodge and Shetland so much that we booked a week in January, dragging my sister, her husband and three year old son to see Up Helly Aa. We weren’t disappointed, it was an amazing experience which is a must and Brekka Lodge was the ideal base. Brekka Lodge has everything anyone could ask for. It overlooks the sea and has access to a cove where inquisitive seals swim. The Lodge itself is cosy and Sheila the host has thought of everything. There are large comfortable beds and plenty to do on a rainy day. We would love to stay again.
Brekka lodge is wonderful, sea views, beach just below at the shore! Very family friendly, had everything you need. Sheila provided a lovely welcome pack too. We were made to feel very welcome. Great place to come, would and will come back!
It’s was a lovely first class villa with all you need for a lovely break and very friendly and helpful
This is a lovely, comfortable property in a great location tucked away near a secluded bay (seals and otters at play) but very convenient for Lerwick and getting around Shetland. The owners were very flexible and friendly and the house has all the facilities you could want and was ideal for our needs.
Everything you need for a self catering holiday in the amazing Shetland Islands, I would recommend searching through the drawers when you get there as it has everything you need from picnic bags to cool blocks in the freezer. It could not have been cleaner and the location is fantastic. The bedrooms are extremely large and the fittings are of the highest quality. We even saw Orcas within around 400 yds just outside the small cove which is less than 5 minutes walk away.
A perfect base to explore Shetland. Well appointed and spotless. The owners next door clearly put a lot of effort into the place to make it a very comfortable place to stay.
When we visit Shetland again we will stay again for sure. See all the other reviews....once visited you will be back and no finer place so did it than from Brekka
