Stayed in the Croft house for a week. Once we found it at the 4th attempt, we enjoyed every minute there. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the setting is dramatic with Hoy overlooking the Flow and the property.
It was also a great place to explore from. But, as stated elsewhere, you need independent transport.
The accommodation was cleverly restored and expanded, with everything that you could want available.
Went to Orkney to visit family who recently moved there. I stayed with my daughter, my friend and her daughter. One of the best holidays we have ever had. The girls loved the bunk beds, play park outside and the mini golf. It's about 15/20mins from Stromness and Kirkwall by car. You will need a car in Orkney to see all the beautiful locations. The cottage is beautiful and views from it are just amazing. The owner is lovely and goes above and beyond to help you while staying there. Our wi-fi went off and someone was at our door within 15mins to fix it. You have everything you need here, comfy beds (we had the best nights sleep ever there), bathroom, ensuite, comfy furniture, plenty cooking facilities and a nice patio with a bench outside to take in the beautiful views from the cottage itself. We will be returning and hopefully get the chance to stay here again.
Unbelievable setting, unbelievable views great place for a couple or a large group. I highly recommend this place for value and Scotland vacation enjoyment! The Stromess golf club is an excellent find as well with lots of history in the Orkneys.
We rented all the chalets and the Croft house for the first week in June for a party of 17. The accommodation is of a very high standard throughout and very well appointed. The owners were extremely helpful before and during the stay. The chalets are a short drive out of Stromness right on the coast with lovely short walks and the variety of wildlife was amazing. Would definitely recommend!!
