Lindsay and Kim have created a spotless, spacious, home from home with every creature comfort and eggs from their own flock. They welcomed us personally after our overnight passage from Orkney. They have provided a perfect base and have created the freedom to enjoy all that the Shetland Isles have to offer us. We are enjoying superb walking, splendid wildlife, marine activities, and are able to pursue our normal hobbies of swimming and fencing at the mainland Leisure Centre. The ferry timetable was a most thoughtful addition and our commuting has been first rate so many thanks to Shetland Islands Council. The Braeside Café was a real find Ora, our expatriate French waitress, now married and on the Shetland Islands, is a lovely lovely person. Many thanks indeed.

“I must go back!”
Reviewed December 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This cottage was so welcoming the minute I stepped inside. From the outside it looks exactly how I imagined a house in Shetland would look like. Inside this house has retained it's old fashioned charm, but with all the modern conveniences people expect nowadays. It was spotlessly clean with a three large double bedrooms and a galley style kitchen. What impressed me as well was when I opened the cupboard, there were more than the basic necessities that you don't normally find in a holiday let. There was herbs, spices, coffee, tea, and condiments. It was so lovely not to have to dash to the shops to get things like that.
The journey to Bressay was very easy with the Ferries running regularly. The views from the cottage are really nice.

Excellent accommodation with all facilities catered for. Three double bedrooms with plenty room. A great place for relaxing and chilling out, Lerwick and the main Island easy reached on the inter island ferry.
Highly recommend this accommodation if you want a peaceful and quiet break.

Reviewed October 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely traditional Shetland cottage. Beautiful peaceful location and just a few minutes from the town of Lerwick via the inter island ferry. The cottage looks small but is very comfortable and spacious. We felt that all our needs were catered for. The owners made us feel so welcome that it was home from home for us. We will definitely be back.

Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

hi there :) weve stayed on the Shetlands for one week and the newhall cottage was our basis and our home - we really felt there like at home!
the cottage is perfectly situated - the ferry connection to Lerwick is easy going and you will need a 10 journey ticket either for the ferries if you stay longer on the Shetlands - its the cheapest and best way.
we enjoyed our stay there and would book it again and recommend it to everyone who is planning to travel to the Shetlands!
perfectly equipped and new renovated - comfortable for 6 person like it was for the 2 of us too... just gorgeous!
perfect base to get everywhere on the Shetlands and to all points youll plan and need to get to!
