“Delightful location with a wonderful island location”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Peedie Waaness provides the perfect place to stay for a holiday in Orkney. The accommodation and hosts provide all you could wish for in a holiday cottage stay. Convenient for the Pentland ferry service the cottage is extremely comfortable and handily placed for exploring the wonders to be found on the Orkney Islands.

“Stunning views and friendly hosts”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A great stay needs 2 things. A great location and venue, and a great host.

Peedie Waaness has both. I made a mess up of the booking and Jennifer and Trevor (and Alfie) could not have been more flexible. And once there, made friendly neighbours as well

The location was spot on. Fab views and a warm and well equipped cottage

Totally recommend this listing, would be delighted to return one day

“Lovely host and excellent location”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Peedie Waaness for three nights during our first visit to the Orkney Islands and had an absolutely fantastic trip. We arrived with the Pentland Ferry at St. Margaret´s Hope and it took us approximately 10 minutes to reach the accommodation in our rental car. The host, Jennifer, gave us a warm welcome and we immediately felt very much at home and comfortable. Jennifer is such a lovely person and she did everything in her power to give us the best experiences, both as her guests and as tourists on the main island of Orkney. Peedie Waaness is a very nice and cosy self-contained bungalow with two big double rooms, a nice bathroom a very well equipped kitchen and the most lovely living room with an excellent panoramic view over Scapa Flow, one of Britain's most historic stretches of water. While enjoying this view from either of the two comfortable sofas, you could easily imagine all the historical naval battles associated to this location. The bungalow is nicely located in beautiful and quiet surroundings and conveniently close to the Italian Chapel and the Pentland Ferry in St. Margaret´s Hope. All the historical attractions on the main island of Orkney can easily be reached either by car or bus as one day trips. I can definitely recommend staying here if you want to enjoy Orkney Mainland.
