The Noust is a very comfortable cottage for two people - any more and it would be quite cramped. It was very well equipped with everything we needed. St Margaret's Hope is a delightful village with a good supply of eateries nearby. There were plenty of places to visit nearby and access to other parts of the islands was easy. We had a great holiday and would recommend.
What a great retreat just off the ferry. The evening we arrived it was miserable weather, but Tracey was there as promised with good wishes and the keys.
In we went to the cutest, most cosy cottage ever. It just reflected what we expected of the Orkney Islands. Thought the weather was awful, the cosiness of the cottage overcame it.
Great location, well furnished house with good kitchen facilities.
A great base from which to explore the islands from, only wish we could have stayed for longer.
The cottage is situated on the harbour's edge, close to local shops and amenities but still very quiet. It was warm and well furnished, just one or two more kitchen utensils would have made the stay perfect.
Thoroughly enjoyable, very good location and all facilities needed were available in St Margarets Hope.
Had a great stay in this comfortable cottage for the first half of February. Cottage is exactly as described, and with excellent heating it is very cosy and warm even when there is snow outside! Local shops perfectly adequate, and handy post office just around the corner. Tracey and peter were very helpful - I was only sorry that I could not stay longer.
A last minute booking (which wasn't instantly confirmed but had to be checked with the owner due to short notice. This was the only slight downside, the owner confirmed quickly fortunately) which turned up this real gem for two. It was tastefully furnished, not too spartan, with books and games should the weather prove unhelpful. The bed was generous and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with some essentials (tea bags, coffee, condiments etc) and even a pint of milk in the fridge to set us up. The village was lovely for a wee bimble along the harbour and round the block to work up an appetite for the fish and chips which could be bought from the visiting van (times clearly presented in the information pack). A local grocery store and coffee shops nearby were unexpected bonuses. Thank you for a lovely stay; we'll be back!

What a picturesque Setting. Cottage is exceptional,clean & cosy, equipped with all you could need for a comfortable home from home experience. The owners Tracey & Peter were so welcoming. The Village of St Margarets Hope is a fantastic base to visit all the historic sights of Orkney. We will certainly be booking up again next year....no doubt about that!!
