Spotless, excellently equipped lodge.
I can't praise this lodge highly enough although I do feel if 8 people stayed there they might find it a bit cramped.
The perfect place if you just want to relax, but also ideal as a base to explore the islands. The lodge is well equipped, warm and comfortable with great views. The sort of place that you want to keep secret so that you can be sure of getting back again.
My third visit to Brekka Lodge - superb, as ever. Very comfortable, very clean, everything just right for a visit to the incredible Shetland Islands
Brekka Lodge is a extrtemely comfortable, well appointed, and beautifully located home away from home. Everything we needed was provided, including beautiful views of the sea from the house and perfect weather (weather not guaranteed). It's a short walk down to the beach where we saw seals and the lime kiln ruins. The house is just a few minutes from Lerwick in the quiet countryside. We rarely saw a vehicle on the road but frequently saw the sheep and ponies in adjacent fields. We were five adults and found Brekka Lodge an ideal place for our week's vacation. I can't wait to return to Shetland and stay here again.

Brekka Lodge is a rare find; a really well equipped, comfortable, clean house in a fabulous location. Ideally placed, 15 minutes from Lerwick and half an hour from Sumburgh, it is also 5 minutes walk from a rocky beach with resident seal.
During our stay in September, the house was always warm. It is exceptionally well equipped throughout; kitchen utensils, laundry, local information, toys and baby equipment. However, it is the little things that make a holiday cottage a real home from home and Sheila and George provide all these:- milk, butter and homemade chocolate cake in the fridge, oatcakes, fresh flowers on the kitchen window sill, foam bath, tissues, coffee, tea, condiments etc.
The bedrooms are large and they need to be to fit in the huge, comfortable beds and ample storage. Our 2 year old grandson loved the big bath and the bath toys.
My abiding memory of Brekka Lodge will be the view from the living room window towards Bressay and Noss, especially as the sun rose. It is a very special place.
