“An amazing place to stay”
Reviewed September 14, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is a real home from home ideally placed to see all that Orkney has to offer. The property is very comfortable and very well equipped with many extra touches.

“Just what we wanted for our vacation”

This was an extremely well appointed and comfortable accommodation, where we stayed for a week. The owner has supplied almost every need for a superb experience. Although the cottage will sleep four, there was just the two of us which gave even more space. Hot water was constant and heating available swiftly when it got chilly. The Cottage itself is located in Burray Village and is extremely accessible to Kirkwall and about 20 + miles to the Stromness Ferry. Given a sunny day you could not wish for better.

“Excellent cottage, great location, ideal.”

We stayed as a family for a week in Sherwood Cottage, incl 2 teenage daughters - yes, on Orkney! OK, there is a good Wi-Fi connection so that helps but we were able to: walk, golf (crazy), fish, play tennis, go to the beach, all from the cottage. It has been refurbished to a high standard with everything needed for a relaxing break. The communication from the owner was great. We would book this again without hesitation.
