We had a fantastic holiday at Swannay Cottage. Lovely quiet location and extremely clean and well equipped cottage. Really cosy and warm too. Friendly and helpful owner nearby.
What a wonderful place to stay. The cottage has plenty of space for 5 adults and 4 dogs.
This place has everything you could need. On arrival the basics were there including tea, coffee and milk along with a lovely basket of extras with local produce to try.
The garden is lovely and once the gate at the front is closed its completely enclosed which is perfect for 4 dogs to run and play.
All of the fixtures, fittings and kitchen ware etc are of an excellently high standard. The extra little touches like the Orkney soap products in the bathroom were a lovely touch and we really haven't wanted for anything.
The wi-fi was a bit temperamental but that was kind of nice!!
The owner Karen greeted us on the first day and was very friendly and welcoming.
I would definitely recommend this cottage and will stay again if we come back to Orkney.
This is a beautiful cottage with everything you need at hand and very comfortable. The basket of Orkney goodies provided by Karen was a lovely surprise and we thoroughly enjoyed them. It was our first time in Orkney and we explored the island from beautiful beaches and loved all the historic places we visited We bought the Orkney Explorer pass which saves you money if going to a lot of historic Scotland sites around the island. Karen made us feel really welcome and she was on hand if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this cottage and we will be back to explore the island further.
