Short drive from the town, comfortable, quiet and clean. Everything you want from a holiday cottage.
the only problem was a weak wi-fi signal, but thankfully my 3G connection worked

“Excellent self-catering”

Our lodge was a double room, a twin room, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. Everything was very well kitted out, and dishwasher and washer/drier came in very handy. Lots of cutlery and crockery all in matching sets - it's clearly very well looked after, and an excellent place to stay. The lodges are on the edge of town (about 20 minutes downhill walk into Kirkwall) in a quiet cul-de-sac right next to Highland Park distillery. Great value for money - an excellent place to stay!

“Truly outstanding accommodation”

person found this review helpful

As veterans of self-catered vacations, we are quite accustomed to finding the accommodation to be not quite what the pictures showed. In this case, we were floored to see that the cottage was actually nicer in reality than we had seen from the pictures. We think we got WAY more than we paid for. Absolutely delighted with our cottage and Christine was a lovely and accommodating host.

The cottage was superbly clean with a well-equipped kitchen. Lots of crockery, all in good condition, and plenty of utensils.

We did not have a car for most of our stay and we did not feel that we needed one -- Kirkwall's town centre is an easy 1 mile walk downhill. The location is extraordinarily quiet and peaceful. A lovely place to relax.

“Amazing cottage accommodation - awesome for anyone who wants to stay in Orkney for a while!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here for 4 days in July 2013 and enjoyed it very much. The cottages are on the outskirts of Kirkwall, in a very peaceful area, but within easy walking distance of the city center and supermarkets (2 big ones - extremely handy for self-caterers). The rooms are large and bright, warm, immaculately clean, all amenities work as advertised. Free parking in front of the cottage... With 2 rooms (one with a double bed, the other with 2 beds), it's perfect for 3 or 4 people. The price was also extremely reasonable! All in all very warmly recommended for anyone who wants to stay in Orkney for more than a couple of days.

Liked best: The cottage itself... just a great place to stay in!
Liked least: The kitchen bin could be a bit larger, but that's just a nitpick.

“Very comfortable, convenient and value for money”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 for a stay in May 2012

We stay at High Park every year for work purposes. Christine, who runs the cottages, is extremely helpful and friendly (thank you for all of your help over the years).

The cottages are well equipped with everything that you could possibly want during your stay. They are very clean and well maintained. All of the fixtures and fittings are of good quality.

The cottages are situated next to the Highland Park Distillery, and so whisky supplies are never far away in case of emergencies. It is a short walk (15-20 mins) down the hill into the main parts of Kirkwall, where you will find whatever you are after. Most people who visit Orkney will have a car to visit all that the islands have to offer and of course these cottages have plenty of parking.

We are about to stay in High Park again in a few days, and I am sure that the stay will be as good as ever.
