We stayed as a family for a week in Sherwood Cottage, incl 2 teenage daughters - yes, on Orkney! OK, there is a good Wi-Fi connection so that helps but we were able to: walk, golf (crazy), fish, play tennis, go to the beach, all from the cottage. It has been refurbished to a high standard with everything needed for a relaxing break. The communication from the owner was great. We would book this again without hesitation.

“Great house, great location, great island.”

We loved the house it had everything we needed. The local hotel served great food.
The location was good for exploring the mainland and is within easy reach of ferry ports.
Would really suit a family with children as lots of space, climbing wall and local park.
There is so much to see you won't be disappointed.

we chose this cottage as first stop in an extended orkney stay looking for evidence of our heritage. the owner was fantastically responsive, professional and super gracious. one review mentioned that the pics fall short of showing how terrific this home is--true--this place is great!

peacefully situated fairly close to the ferry in st margarets hope (awesome directions!) in a lovely little community. the keys were easily accessed, walking in to welcome gifts (local milk and cheeses) washed away the tension of a day of hard driving north from inverness. the yard was open and inviting, very happy family vibe. the two floors and two baths provided plenty of privacy and space, and THE BEDS were especially wonderful. there was a pleasant market within an easy stroll to a sweet little village. friendly neighbors, especially one with a miniature golf course assembly in progress. loved sherwood cottage, thank you to our hosts!
