“'Happiness is Slap-shaped'”
Reviewed March 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016
people found this review helpful

This is our third time here.
First time we were in the Gateway caravan and we loved it.
The second time we were in The slap Cottage and we loved it even more.
Now we're here again. We've been for a week at a time before but this time it's a fortnight, and it's still not long enough. It's comfy, has a couple of solid-fuel stoves as well as heating and is a great place to chill out. The welcome is second to none for friendliness and help.
If you want to see Orkney and like a solid cottage, look no further. We're here now in Feb/March, and we are pleased that we brought layers of clothing for when we go out.
We would recommend The Slap wholeheartedly. Just do it.
Happiness is Slap shaped.

Liked best: Too many things to select one, but if forced....the welcome we received.
Liked least: Being an Orkney cottage with small windows, it is not blessed with too much daylight inside.
