“An ocean view”

An amazing place to stay in North Orkney with a view out of the lounge window north and west across the ocean view, big garden for fantastic picnics and a good run for children and dog, the heating is straight from the garden wind turbine we sat and watched the approaching storms from the comfort of the lounge, very well equipped with sky, a perfect base for all sites on Orkney mainland and visits to the neighbouring islands, the beach is a long walk or more practically a very short drive with birsay one of the best on Orkney, there is a local shop in Birsay and a local baker at Harray stores who bakes fantastic cakes and bread every day, you can get cheap fresh fish from both Kirkwall and Stromness suppliers.....not much more you need...........a hamper of local goodies when you get there, a vegetable patch to help yourself, a lighthouse out of your dining room window.....you get those as well.....

“Perfect Base In Orkney”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Ocean View last week with our two boys. Ocean View is the perfect holiday cottage for a visit to Orkney. One of the best appointed holiday cottages we have stayed in - with a well equipped kitchen for self catering, and all furnishings/decoration as new. Boys especially appreciated Sky TV. Useful to have internet access to check out weather and visitor attractions each day.
