“Rural retreat of our dreams!”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very warm and knowledgeable welcome from Tina, with delicious homemade cake and Orkney goodies in fridge.
Absolutely stunning location with wonderful views of sea and open views of Orkney's beautiful landscape.
Cottage was bigger and much more spacious than we thought with every amenity laid on by Paul and Tina, from a very useful pair of binoculars to eggs from their own chickens left for us.
Although the weather is not dictated by any holiday cottage owner - we had brilliant weather being very warm and dry with very little rain. Had it been very wet there was more than enough in the cottage to keep us occupied, simply watching the views was entertaining enough! Genuinely didn't want to leave and we will be back to Tiffyhall.

“Tiffyhall is a tonic”

This was our third visit to Orkney but our first stay at Tiffyhall and it did not disappoint. Great location with wonderful views from the large lounge and bedroom windows. At times reading my book was difficult as I was distracted (in a good way) by the bird life over the fields and the grazing sheep and chickens. Finishing touches added to the experience with soft, fluffy towels and a lovely welcome pack of food goodies. Felt at home from the start. First class.

We had a wonderful week on the Orkney mainland. The scenery, the cottage and our hosts made the trip special. We were even present for a sheep sheering at their farm. The kitchen was fully equipped and unlike another reviewer who made light meals, we enjoyed the same type of meals that we would have at home. The surprise treats waiting for us in the fridge gave a nice homey touch. We highly recommend Tiffyhall 2 Cottage to anyone wanting to visit there but it should be mentioned that the bedroom is upstairs with a slanted ceiling. My husband bumped his head quite frequently to my delight, until I did the same. No harm done, just couldn't believe we kept forgetting to duck!
