We had the most amazing week staying in Birsay. The accommodation in ocean view cottage was perfect with everything thought out even the veg patch and excellent welcome basket.
We ate out at the barony hotel, a short stroll from the accommodation and the food and welcome was fantastic. So much to see and do, I am sure we will be back!
Ocean view lives up to it's name with views over rolling fields to Marwick head and the Brough of Birsay. We found it clean modern and well equipped (Though a dishwasher would add to holiday ease!). Warm and comfortable even on cold wet days. A perfect situation for a relaxed "Away from it all" holiday. There is Wi-Fi and satellite TV if you must, but no mobile phone signal (A landline is provided for emergency use). Local shops and beaches are just a short drive (Or long walk) away but shop early in the week, they can run out of luxuries!. All in all a lovely place to stay.
Stayed at Ocean View on our first trip to Orkney and fell in love with it immediately. Perfectly situated for access to both civilisation and the wilds the cottage is beautifully presented with everything you could need and had a really homely feel. The welcome hamper was great and towels and treats for dog was a great touch ! We fell in love with both Orkney and Ocean View and will definitely be back ! Already recommended to friends .
Ocean view is an excellent holiday home.
Very cosy and clean. The house is well equipped with everything you could need.
The house does have wifi but do not expect to get a mobile phone signal. The house does have a landline which could be used for an emergency if needed.
We could recommend this house and we would stay again.
Excellent cottage for self catering holiday in Birsay, Orkney. Has everything you need, nice modern interior and lovely garden. Pet friendly too.
